My skin is picky when it comes to facial moisturizers. The difference I felt with the Arcona Magic White Ice is that it went much farther than just hydrating my skin at the surface - it seeped under my skin and kept my skin feeling soft and dewy all day without clogging my pores. And after a long day of working, running around the city and hitting the gym, it's the perfect gel to put on just before bed at night - light and airy. My skin was actually craving it again each night and morning!
New Daily Moisturizer!
I'm a loyal fan of (another brand) of moisturizer, LOYAL. But this one knocked me off my rocker... and it's a gel! I have combination skin bordering on the oily side, yet sensitive to the dry climate I live in. I need moisture on my skin but nothing too heavy or filled with 'stuff' - the less the ingredients the better. I've dismissed gels in the past because they're sticky, but this one leaves skin soft to the touch. This is light weight and dries quickly. I ordered a full bottle after my birchbox sample ran out - it's the first divergence from my normal moisturizer in 10years!
wish it was a little cheaper cos i like it A LOT
the weather has been really crazy this winter. i got this as a sample this winter. used it once, liked it, but figured i'd just use it when i ran out of my usual winter moisturizer.
this past week, i desperately needed some serious exfoliation. so i used my favorite dermabrasion (Origins) and despite my seriously sensitive skin, i went ahead and used some Biore strips in some areas. my skin was a little red & dry afterwards, since this is most definitely NOT my normal routine.
i decided to use the Magic White Ice to calm and add some moisture ("ICE" in the name of the product was appealing!) and i could not be more pleased. my skin felt incredibly soft straight away, and not a hint of dryness or tightness, was left. the next day my skin felt even better. smooth and hydrated.
while this product is way out of my beauty product price range, i will surely splurge on this one day.
others have complained - but i love the unusual texture and smell. it's one of the best moisturizers i've ever used.
Great light moisturizer!
I am so in love with this light moisturizer. If you are prone to having really dry skin in the winter or after showers, this is the right kind of moisturizer for you. As soon as I apply some onto my face, it instantly feels hydrated and will last all day and night! Can't wait to get my hands on more of this.
Too harsh for my face
This made my face red and raw when I used it. It smelled really nice but was too much for my sensitive skin.
I like the smell :)
Got this as a secret sample and really enjoyed it. It feels refreshing and does sink in quickly. It does have a grape/berry scent, but it made me smile and I enjoyed it. Layered well with serum and make up.
I have never heard of this brand before, but was pleasantly surprised by how hydrating this serum was. Besides hydration though, not sure if this actually clears pores as ithe description says.
I had never heard of this product prior to receiving it in my box....what a great surprise! My tired winter skin literally soaked this gel right up. I liked the consistency, and it did not leave my skin one bit oily.
Smells like cough syrup
The actual texture isn't that bad and at first the smell didn't bother me but as it sat on my skin longer it started smelling more and more like medicine. Ugh.
I was skeptical when I first tried this very light moisturizer, but it keeps my skin moist, even in the below zero winter weather. Best of all, it keeps my acne in check because it's non-comedogenic.
