During my mid-twenties I started having acne break-outs on my cheeks and chin line. I tried everything, over several years! Oral antibiotics, benzyl peroxide, expensive cleansers, basic cleansers. My skin was irritated from all of the chemicals and I still had breakouts. I also realized that I was having an allergic reaction in the form of bumps, due to parabens. I tried this line of products after a facial with an esthetician. It is in a bar form, which I thought was strange at first, but the bar lasts a long time. It creates a nice lathering and smells wonderful! My favorite result is how much more clear my skin is!

I never had skin problems until my thirties. I have hormonal acne along with rosacea. I've tried everything from a-z over the counter, including professional facials that made the problem worse. I found this raspberry bar in Nordstrom with the help of a beauty rep who used to have similar issues with her skin. The rep's skin was gorgeous, flawless! She said she uses this regimen: (1). Walmart Equate Original Clean Wet Cleansing Towelettes with vitamin E- to remove make-up. (2). Next step is to wash with Arcona Raspberry Clarifying Bar. (3). Last step is to use the Arcona Cranberry Triad Pads. (4). Use Clean and Clear Persa Gel only as needed on a pimple, use as a spot treatment, do not use all over.My rosacea redness and acne have disappeared, completely gone after 1 night of this regimen. I've been using this regimen for weeks now and my face still looks flawless. The raspberry bar and cranberry pads have antioxidants that make redness disappear. The facial towelettes remove make-up for a deeper clean, and the spot treatment makes the pimple vanish overnight. I use only the raspberry bar in the morning, followed by putting NARS makeup on. The other four steps at night when my make-up comes off. This regimen is the world's BEST kept secret! You must try to believe.
I bought this for my daughter after she had a facial on August 23rd at a local spa. She is 21 and has been fighting hormonal acne for a while. I'm not certain what products were used on her for her facial however, it burned her skin leaving burn marks and a hole similar to a chicken pox scar between her eyes. She is a stunningly beautiful young lady with blond hair and blue eyes.I bought this from a local retailer out of desperation on August 26th who recommended the Raspberry Clarifying bar by Arcona. I've been using several of their products and love the brand so I thought it would help. I also bought her Osmotics Cream Extreme to help heal the burns. Her skin was so bad she didn't go into work for two days and no make up, even for scars would cover the burns - and her skin was breaking out from all the extractions and peel. She was distraught and in tears.She called me last night telling me that her skin is completely clear. She is a perfectionist so when she says clear, she means not even one little tiny bump anywhere. She said that she couldn't believe how well it worked, it never burned when she first used it or continued to use it with her Clairsonic. It didn't dry her out or make her oily. She is absolutely thrilled and said this is the best her skin has ever looked. She wants to buy more from the Arcona line. I told her we would order from the Skinstore when she stops by today on her day off. She started using this on Aug. 26th and it's Sept. 10th - that's less than 2 weeks!!!I love that the products are made with all natural ingredients, are reasonably priced and that they work!! I'm switching from La Prairie and La Mer to Arcona!
I really wanted to like this product. I purchased based on an earlier reviewer with sensitive skin who loved the product. I tried this product twice. Each time my skin became irritated before I finished washing. Afterward my skin felt tight, painful and irritated for hours. I did like the look of my skin after using the product. I am sure it is great for others but unfortunately it doesn't work for my skin.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I try to use it every morning and night. It has helped clear my face. I've used proactive and many clean and clear products and all sorts of stuff and none have ever helped me like this bar has! it lasts a really long time too. Awesome product and totally worth the money. especially how long it lasts.
I love this soap! I first started using it in November, so I wanted to wait before writing a review. I have tried a million products, and this is by far the best product for me. My skin was so broken out, and Retin-A made it look scaly and weird. After using several Arcona products for about 2 months, my skin is almost completely clear. I used to get huge breakouts all over, and now I get tiny bumps if anything. My skin looks like it used to before I started breaking out (from stress). Definitely cut the bar into 4 wedges to make it last longer!
I love this bar!!! It smells so delicious I almost want to eat it. And it cleanses my (mostly) oily, somewhat break-out prone skin. It gently deep cleans (I pair it with my Clarisonic brush), removing excess oil and make-up, but is NEVER drying. I've been using it for about 3 months now and I'm not even halfway through the bar (I cut it into quarters like another helpful reviewer suggested). So consider that if you're thinking it's somewhat pricey. Overall I would definitely recommend this to someone with skin similar to mine.
Cleanses well, prevents breakouts. Lasts for months. Favorite cleanser!
I've always suffered with mild breakouts and used purity by philosophy as a cleanser. Purity did clean my pores, but never took c/o of the small bumps and minor break-outs. Once I started using Arcona I noticed a hugh improvement in my skin texture, no more zits or minor blemishes. The bar also goes a long way, so don't get turned off by the price.
The fragrance of this bar is so good. It lathers great, takes off makeup, and with everyday use it does help keep skin clear...but it is fairly expensive and i don't like that it is a bar...would like it much better as a liquid face wash.
