product does what it says

I was a bit reluctant or unsure about whether an alpha-hydroxy product with this concentration would be good for my skin (sensitive and fair), but it has done the opposite: it hasn't hurt my skin at all (but be careful - if you have an inkling or know that AHA can irritate your skin - this does 'tingle'), and has in fact delivered on the promises for decreasing the appearance of fine lines, slight skin discoloration, and any flakiness or dry patches. I'm really pleased with this product, feel safe and good using it, and actually plan on buying some for my mom as a present.
Just doesn't work for me

I purchased the whole acne care Arcona set and a few extra items and have been using them for 4 weeks now. So far my face is actually worse off than before. Peeling, red, and I wake up to a new painful zit and blackheads every morning! I guess this system just isn't for me. I purchased the Arcona products because of all the rave reviews but it is very expensive for a skin care system that doesn't work. If you have combination skin, hormonal changes due to pregnancy or birth of a child (like me) and/ or cystic acne, be cautious with this brand. The products smell delicious and seem to work for other people but they are pretty expensive to just throw away!
Great product while it lasted but...

First, I would like to say that this product is a fantastic scrub. I can't tell how many compliments I received from women about how soft my skin was and the fabulous fragrance. However, after not using for a couple of weeks, I notice that underneath the container oils had seeped out somehow and the product inside had hardened. Mind you, the container was completely sealed so I don't know why this happened. But, needless to say, I will not pay this much money for a scrub that goes bad so quickly. Maybe I had a bad batch, but it's to bad because I will not take the chance again even though it was great while it lasted.
my favorite scrub EVER!

I am a fan of scrubs and this scrub exceeds all expectations. I bought it to use before applying a self tanner. I followed the instructions... apply before showering and massage onto body for 5 minutes... then shower off. The results were amazing!! My skin was soft and glowing and the self tanner went on smoothly. Winner!
post workout must!

I'm sooo in love with this body wash after a workout. It is extremely invigorating! I love the jojoba beads to smooth my skin and the minty fresh smell is absolutely amazing. A little pricey and doesn't last as long but somehow the minty feeling is worth it to me. It really soothes my tired muscles.
My before shaving treat!

LOVE this stuff. It's the first body scrub I've used that didn't leave a gross film on my skin, or in the shower! not oily at all, it actually foams up a little and makes my body super soft and moisturized. I love using this on my legs before I shower, the smell lingers on even after shaving! Yummy.
awesome scrub, awesome size!

I have been using this product for for over five years. Some Bliss products I find drying, but this one works nicely, both as a shower soap and exfoliator, especially before shaving! Feels and smells nice, too! Have thought of trying less expensive products, but this one is worth the price. One bottle lasts forever!
awesome scrub for all seasons

One of the best body scrubs I've tried so far. I don't have the best skin and this scrub definitely help change that. I also think that it's great for any season.
For the winter it helps with flaky skin and body lotions applies smoothly onto the skin. For summer, it help clear out your pores because you will be sweating quite a lot from the heat and dirt can built up! Love it.
My legs and I agree on loving this!

Love this scrub. I've tried a lot of scrubs and this is the only one that i can say I will buy a thousand more times. It kind of smells like pickles when you open it and scrub it on, no worries though the scent does not stay. The scrubs turns into a light serum when rubbed onto skin with a little bit of water and you can instantly tell the smoother softness of your skin as soon as its rinsed off. Its definitely worth spending the little extra money on a great scrub, and it will last for a while because a little goes a long way with this particular scrub and you dont need to scrub near as often because of it. Its a great product!
Miracle product worth every cent

As far as cell turnover goes, I've had better results using this a few times a week followed by Arcona's Cranberry Gommage, than I have with Retin-A (prescription), Obagi, or microdermabrasion.
I have adult acne (cystic), and the Arcona line is the only thing besides regular rotation of a combination of Jessner's peels + blue light/levulan treatments + antibiotics. Needless to say, this is a lot easier and less expensive!
The Solution, like a lot of Arcona products, has the consistency of water. It's not liquidy, it IS liquid. It can be hard to work with at first but once you get the hang of it, it's much more preferable than using creams. I use it more frequently when I have scarring come up or feel large zits emerging - there's a visible difference by morning. Last night I used it on my decolletage for the first time, and I don't think my skin has been this smooth since I was 10 years old.
