When I bought this, my skin was in serious distress. I had overdone it on retinoids and it was red, dry, flaky and incredibly irritated at the slightest thing. Even my normal moisturizer was too much for it to tolerate. This serum turned all that around. It is very soothing and my skin just drank it up. It helps the skin hold onto moisture and fights back redness. It's going to be a permanent part of my fall/winter skincare routine even now that my skin has calmed down again and can tolerate my other products.

When used every night, this exfoliating treatment tightens and brightens surface skin. I did not notice any effect on older hyperpigmentation, maybe I needed to use it longer (I used one bottle) or perhaps the Solution in its place. It treats active acne effectively, but does nothing for blackheads. I used it in conjunction with the cranberry gommage, 1-2 pumps onto dry skin immediately after cleansing.The packaging is great, one of the best. Airtight pump so the ingredients are not exposed to air or other contaminates. I actually switched over to this after a trial run with DE Froombus(?). I prefer this one, but am still looking for a more suitable treatment.

Bought it because I read it increases or optimizes the efficacy of the Gentle Solution treatment. Therefore, I used the treatment at nighttime and the gommage in the morning. Based on my use, I believe it did help accelerate results. My skin was brighter and smoother. However, over time the treatment is not as effective which then sort of nulled the gommage.The scrub is gritty (but not in a harsh way) and smells great! If you like strawberry scents. I did not encounter any issues rinsing it off, maybe a very slight barely there film which did not cause breakouts. Weird.The epiderm II microdermabrasion scrub performs better imo so no repurchase for me.

I tried this on at a department store and really liked how it felt. Well I was wrong. This really is just an ordinary oil and a high price tag. It is not more hydrating than say regular old rosehips or squalene. Also the bottle design makes it hard to get every drop out. Way to pricey for .5 oz of oil that really didn’t do a lot for my skin. Maybe for someone less dry this may be the answer.

Arcona's Cranberry Toner ready to go on presoaked applicator pads. The pads are very thin and small, and have an exfoliating side and a smooth side. I found them mildly scrubby and not rough at all if I avoid the eyes. Not enough liquid, the pads seem a little dry. One pad barely covers my face to just refresh my skin without any makeup. I can imagine how many I'd need if I did have makeup on! Not fond of the Hubba Bubba grape cordial and almond flower scent but I can see how others like it. If you do like this kind of scent, you'll love this as it is strong and lasts for a few hours. Anyway, the formula is slightly irritating and does nothing to change the look of my skin. I was hoping it would be brighter or smoother. Pass.
