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 …

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 …Read more

This is one serious scrub that works well. Very concentrated, tiny bit needed and evenly shaped particles. This is liquid sandpaper, so those with very sensitive skin might like their Golden Grain Gommage better. I love this, works well and I only need it twice a week. If you like serious scrubs, you will love this.

The Sephora sales assistant advised me to get this over the golden grain homage as she said this is less abrasive. This smells great and it's a lovely lavender color too. U need to mix some water into the scrub before applying on your face to reduce the abrasiveness. However having said that, once the scrub is washed off, my skin does not sting or feel raw. In fact, my skin feels baby soft …Read more

If you grew up in the 80's and remember obsessively sniffing your Strawberry Shortcake doll until all the good smell ran out, then you'll understand why I love this product. It doesn't smell like real berries, I mean raspberries and blueberries unfortunately don't smell this good nor have much smell at all, but this product does have a sweet berry-esque smell. Most …Read more

Love it, but not for overly oily skin. More suitable for regular/combination skin. I say this because I have regular/combo skin and it makes my skin luminous and wonderful, but my best friend with acne used it and broke out even more. As an exfoliant for my combination skin type it's fantastic , just a bit pricey.

I've tried this several times and it breaks me out each time. I gave it to my sister because of all the good reviews I thought it was just my skin but she told me it broke her out after the first use. I liked the smell and the gritty feel of it but there must have been an ingredient that disagrees with my skin. I also did not find it to be particularly exfoliating, it seemed to add to my …Read more

This is just to much for my skin. No matter how gentle I tried to be, this is just too rough--I felt like I was tearing my face up. I finished up my tube as a body scrub.

One of the best scrubs I've ever used! Great for oily skin and doesn't have an adverse effect, for sensitive skin types.
Amazing!

From my understanding of what the word "gommage" means and having used Institut Esthederm and Chanel gommages, it is more like a cream that exfoliates gently. This Arcona product is basically a scrub, with a large grain, that exfoliates physically by actually rubbing the cells off and then chemically with salicylic acid. You really have to put a small amount in your palm and add a …Read more
