Product Review: Arcona Tea Tree Mask

Arcona-Tea-Tree-Mask Wowee, this is some mask from ARCONA! It’s their Tea Tree Mask and it “cleanses, purifies, detoxifies and refines the skin’s texture,” and I feel like it did all that and just really woke my skin up! I have combo skin and I’ve used it a few times all over my face and neck but I’m also thinking since I get blemishes only once in a while, this might be a good one to use as a spot treatment. But wow, it does feel so good when I use it all over, like my skin just gargled with Listerine! Witch Hazel Extract and Sulphur are the first two ingredients listed but the product itself doesn’t smell overwhelming like sulphur, which it’s sometimes known to do. And the Sulphur is a really good exfoliator and this especially great at helping to treat psoriasis spots, which I have a few of on my body. $30/2oz @

Cranberry Never Felt So Good!

Arcona_2How many times has your best friend complained to you about her large pores? Next time she opens her mouth about it, tell her about ARCONA Cranberry Gommage ($42/3.4oz @ This one uses enzymes to clean, exfoliate and tone the skin and really get into those pores to clean them out. As with any scrub for the face, don’t overdue it and strip your skin. It’s recommended for use a few times a week.

Mineral On-the-Go

Arcona_3You won’t catch me toting around those round containers with my mineral makeup inside when I need a foundation touch up during the day. They’re just not convenient. Instead, I pack ARCONA’s Sunsations Seychelles Mineral Makeup ($45/7grams @ in the brush-on tube. The button’s on the bottom and you just pump the powder into the brush and buff. And this one contains a sun protection SPF 25, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and vitamins C and E. Available in seven shades.
