There are no miracle workers that make your skin perfect or young again, and I wouldn't claim that this product is going to give you absolutely everything you want to see in your skin. But I have to say, for aging skin, it's proving quite effective and delivers a good deal more than many many other high end products I've tried, which so often turn out to be nothing but hype and deliver next to nothing. I've been using the Arcona day and night for about a week solid now and have already begun to notice a visible reduction in the depth of lines. Nothing's disappeared, but things definitely are looking better, and I think this stuff helps to even out the complexion too. It isn't, however, moisturizing enough for me and I couldn't use it alone. It felt almost drying when I tried it that way. So for this past week I've been blending it with a moisturizing oil with squalane, pomegranate seed oil and rose hips oil. I blend the complex and the oil in the palm of my hand just before applying. It's splendid and feels great on the skin. I also think blending with a good moisturizer would work too, though I haven't tried that yet.

Ease of Use

I love the Arcona products. This one seems to moisturize better than Magic White Ice, which is not enough for my dry skin. The smell is great, and the fact that there are no chemicals in any of the Arcona products is enough to keep me a loyal customer.
