Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Tamanu Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/24/2012

I purchased tamanu oil from mountain rose herbs to help my eczema on my hands and feet. It is not working as fast as some reviewers say but after a week I think the eczema is better. It did get rid of the itch almost instantly and dried it up in a day or 2.

I decided to try it on my face even though I'm a dedicated Arcona user and very happy with all the products I use. One …

I can only wear my hair wavy when I use this conditioner along with the Ouidad shampoo and gel. I'm not sure if it conditions any better then other brands, but it does something to facilitate wavy/curly hair.

I think GC is the most effective over the counter retinol out there. I just wish they would not put FD&C yellow 5, red 40, blue 1 in there. All of my other skin care products are very natural (ARcona) but I make an exception for GC because it is that good!
UPDATE: the arcona products have been so great for my skin that I no longer need to use this product.

I love this product!! I bought one of the sample kits after discussing my skin with an arcona rep at the department store and have not used any other products on my skin since! Having dry, sensitive, AND acne prone skin at the same time can be challenging finding a good moisturizer. Magic White ice is the perfect mosituizer for me. It mositurizes, does not irritate my skin, and does not break …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Mia

It may be the combo of the Arcona products that I'm using along with the mia, but my skin has never looked this good. Before using this, I could have probably extracted something from just about every pore on my face. Now, almost nothing! It is really amazing. I also had little small bumps on my forehead for years that nothing seemed to get rid of. Now, I can count 3 on my whole face! I …Read more

Well, I'm amazed at the difference in opinions on this primer. I absolutely love it! I've been on a search for a good primer that does not dry out my lid or make me look older. This one is the right color for me (fair skin) and goes on nice and smooth. It keeps my eye shadow totally in place all day with no creases. You only need a little bit, so the tub with last a long time I think …Read more

Cleansers - Arcona - Berry Fruit Bar

Feb/04/2011

This bar smells good and comes in a nice little jar for storage. It does a great job of taking off my make up and cleaning out my pores without drying my skin or causing any sensitive reactions. I started out with the toner tea bar in the summer, but had to switch to this bar when winter hit because my skin gets very dry in the winter. I can't say enough about arcona products. My skin has …Read more

Well, another amazing product from Arcona. I have not been able to wear any sunscreen for years because they all seem to make my skin itch, sting, burn, or break out. Arcona's reozone does none of those thing. I have been using it for a week and love it! The texture is like mousse and the tint works great for my skin tone. I wear a light mineral powder over top of it and my skin looks more …Read more

another great arcona product. when I first started using this product I did not use the gommage the morning after and was getting a little bit of dry skin. Sinse I added in the cranberry gommage my skin no longer dry at all. She said the 2 must be used together.
