A very gentle chemical exfoliant, based on Witch Hazel, plus Glycolic and Lactic (Milk) acids.Very sticky gel which takes 10 minutes to dry. When it finally dries my skin feels tight and dry, so you may need to pop a moisturiser on top. Didn't irritate my sensitive skin. Don't think I'll buy again as it didn't do anything. Also contains Soy, and I don't want anymore estrogens on my skin (that is why everyone avoids Parabens, as they act like an estrogen, so if you don't like Parabens, you should avoid soy in skincare too as they act the same).

A combination physical + chemical exfoliant (acid) that is REALLY effective to get that baby smooth skin. However, the chemical exfoliant Arcona chose is salicylic acid, the cheapest one in teen products like Clean & Clear which has been proven to slightly age, irritate and redden skin over time. I'm surprised they didn't use the glycolic or one of the other natural fruit acids available that don't age skin. The scrubbys are small and almost rough, I keep a light touch. Smells like grape scented strawberry shortcake dolls from the 80's? Also, like nb55 it dyed my skin a dull purplish grey tinge, even though I only had it on for 2 or 3 minutes. I have very fair skin and it looks awful. Even if you have darker skin which doesn't show the tint, it can't be good for skin to be absorbing all that dye. While I love the effect, I don't think Arcona really has our back on this one. Searching for a replacement.

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.

Can't really justify spending $45 on a tiny cleanser. It feels luxurious, but it didn't really do the trick with oily skin. Also it went shockingly fast and I don't think it has any anti aging benefits. I need something harsher and cheaper that does something.
