Arcona

Birchbox Breakdown

We’re all for embracing the unexpected—who doesn’t enjoy a surprise party? But, when it comes to your skin, consistency is paramount. This hydrating cream smooths out wrinkles and shrinks oversized-looking pores down to size. The upshot: You’re consistently handsome for all those spontaneous deviations that make life interesting.

How it Works

A profusion of peptides promotes collagen synthesis and rejuvenates worn, tired skin. Epidermal Growth Factor, aka EGF, is a naturally occurring milk protein that stimulates cellular renewal. Clarifying totara extract doubles as an antibacterial agent.

Arcona Consistency
Sampled

Good, light-weight moisturizer with a nice, subtle smell. I may not necessarily buy this product because I have other products that I like more and have grown accustomed to using but this is a solid product nonetheless.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND: Excellent Results
Purchased

This lotion is amazing. I have tried many different face lotions and I have never been as satisfied as with the Arcona Consistency. I'm 26 years old so I don't have any issues with wrinkles yet, but I have noticed that my skin obviously doesn't feel or look as firm as it did in my early 20's.

I've seen people write about the tightening feeling of this lotion being "odd" or even "bothersome" but honestly it's so small it's barely noticeable. What is noticeable is how over time it actually makes your complexion more even and definitely has smoothed out some of the smile lines around my eyes.

I have super sensitive skin and have never had an issue while using this lotion; I'm on my third bottle. If you care about keeping your skin healthy and preventing not only skin damage but fine lines and wrinkles this is the lotion you've been looking for.

Like it, but it is pricey

I actually enjoyed using the sample, however, I'm not one to spend $40+ on a product like this. I'll keep looking for something less expensive that might work as well.

Amazing
Purchased

This is a very non-greasy facial cream that works wonders on a tired face. Exfoliate first with hot water, then place some cool water on your face. Dry off and apply the lotion and it will work wonders.

Much better moisturizers on this site

Used the sample, but as others say it leaves the face feeling a bit greasy and wet (but dries fairly quick). Others mention this "tightening" sensation and to me this was pretty uncomfortable. Face cleared up a little bit during the period I used the sample, so it does work, but I did not just enjoy the feeling of applying it and the period shortly after.

So far So good.

I have used it a few times, I like the way it leave's my skin feeling, not sure if i will get a full size yet or not, but i will use up all of the sample.

Works but do you need it?

I think this product serves its purpose but does a young man really need it? I do like the feeling of putting this on my face, even though it doesnt completely absorb into my skin. The only thing is I am not worried about my skin becoming wrinkled. Maybe in 20 years but for now its not a concern of mine. Also this product has no scent. Maybe some people like that but i would prefer it smelling nice.

Nice Facial Product

I enjoyed this sample a great deal. I felt like it provide me with a short term "lift" when it drew up my skin as it dried. Would recommend full purchase

Pretty good

This stuff feels kind of greasy but dries fast. I don't know if it's doing anything special to my skin but it seems to be a decent moisturizer.

its ok

expensive and didn't like the smell. I felt like it did give me a sense of tightening after working it into my face, which felt good but felt the smell was way too chemical and overpowering.
