Lotions/ Creams - Pevonia Botanica - RS2 Skin Care Cream

I was really excited about this cream, and I bought it with the cleanser. I have sensitive, red, dry skin that has reacted poorly to other products. This one was no exception. It didn't make any difference in my redness, and caused me to break out horribly. It did not hydrate very well either. Definitely not worth the money in my opinion.

I love Arcona products, but this one did not work for me at all. This scrub is very harsh and gritty. It felt like I was rubbing coarse sandpaper on my face. When I rinsed it off, my cheeks were super inflamed. I am returning this. I don't really find a scrub necessary with all the exfoliation that other Arcona products give me anyway.

I can't live without this cleanser. I use it twice a day, and it has helped clear my skin up better than months of Tazorac. I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin, and this does not overly dry me out or leave me irritated, which is amazing. It actually calms down redness instead of causing any. I'll definitely be buying this one again!

I really like this eye cream. A tiny bit goes a long way, but I never dilute it with water like the directions suggest. It feels really nice and leaves my eye area super moisturized. The one thing I'm not crazy about is the shine that it leaves. It's not a big deal because I cover it with powder, but I wish I didn't have to do that. Overall, another great Arcona product!

This is my new must-have. I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I put this on at night, and my skin is clearer, smoother, and more radiant than it's ever been in my life. I use it every single night and don't put on any moisturizer. It does not irritate or dry out my skin, which says a lot! I use this in conjunction with the raspberry acne bar, magic white ice, and some other …Read more

I love this moisturizer. I ordered it after reading about it online. I have dry, sensitive skin that is still acne-prone. This stuff moisturizes me enough even in the winter, and it doesn't clog pores at all. I love the consistency and the smell. I bought the hydrating serum as well because I thought this wouldn't be moisturizing enough, and I use it more than the serum. I will …Read more

I love this foundation. My skin was horribly broken out from using Bobbi Brown for a long time. I never even realized what a difference switching makeup can make for your complexion. My skin is now completely clear. I apply this with a sponge and then spritz with the PomMist to set. I have gotten so many compliments on my skin since I started using this foundation. It's expensive, but …Read more

I heard about this stuff on the hair board, and as usual MUA did not steer me wrong! I put it on damp hair before blow drying, and it makes my hair so shiny and not weighed down at all. This is the only styling product I use, and I've gotten so many compliments on my hair since I started using it!

I absolutely love this foundation and the company in general. I used to use Bare Escentuals, but stopped because it didn't give enough coverage. This foundation gives great coverage (but not too heavy), stays on all day, and looks great with minimal effort. I apply it with the BE kabuki brush. Another reason I love Alima is that you can order samples to make sure what shade you are …Read more

This stuff feels exactly like the clay I used in my college ceramics class! I think Lalie hit that one on the head. I could probably get the same results purchasing some of that clay and rubbing it on my face.
