Want a daily cleanser that’s just as beautifying? Try ARCONA’s White Tea Purifying Cleanser.

ARCONA

Birchbox Breakdown

Named after the French word for “scrub,” this luxe gommage treatment can help us score the same enviably dewy complexions as our friends across the pond. Winner of a “Best of Beauty” award from Allure, it’s a spa-grade exfoliator you can use at home. A potent blend of salicylic acid, volcanic minerals, sucrose, and fruit enzymes works hard to cleanse, exfoliate, and purify, providing your skin with major antibacterial benefits.

How it Works

A cleanup crew consisting of cranberry and raspberry enzymes clears the gunk out of pores while minimizing their appearance. Working quietly in the background, white tea and blueberry antioxidants protect skin from free radicals. Combine that with blemish-busting salicylic acid, volcanic minerals, and sucrose, and you have a pore cleanse that digs deep.

How to Use

You know a scrub is potent when you can’t use it every day. With this one, two to four times a week is your limit. Massage a quarter-sized amount into damp face and neck before rinsing.

Hard core exfoliant
SampledPurchased

This is a very "rough" exfoliate and I mean it in the best way. I use it twice a week and it smells so good. It leaves my skin so soft and removes all the dry skin.

amazing!!! miracle product!
SampledPurchased

I tried this as a sample over a year ago I believe, and bought it a few months ago. I'd never go out of my way to write a review on anything I already have AND have already reviewed, but this scrub is absolutely amazing. It makes my face feel incredibly smooth for days or even a week. I have had problems with redness on my chin (which I believe is called oracea...similar to rosacia), which I have had prescription pills and creams to fix. It went away with the pills, but came back a year later. Used the leftover cream stuff, but didn't get the pills. It was a temporary fix. So I stopped using it. Since I've been using just this product, it has been totally under control. I can't express enough how much I love this stuff!!!!

I absolutely love this. For those that find it too rough, add in a few drops of water to dilute the cream a bit-it will still work wonderfully.

Love it!
Purchased

I got this in the monthly boxes about 5 months ago and I couldn't get it out of my head ever since. It smells great, works great, but the only downside to the sample was that it seemed to have a lot of air in it. I hope that when i receive the full size product, it doesnt have a lot of air in it!

Amazing!

I have been looking for an exfoliatior that felt like it was actually doing someone for years after my favorite was discontinued. Finally found it. Fine beads and my skin feels amazing after. Also the scent is great.

Huge Fan!

I am a big fan of this, it's effective even after just ONE use. My skin looked brighter and felt softer. After continued use it has made my skin look better and have less imperfections. I am pretty happy with the bead size too, it's not so small I can't feel it or feel that it's not doing a good job and not so big its not effective. I also feel it's not rough at all, so it keeps my skin pretty happy.

By far, this is the best scrub God has made.
Purchased

This tiny granulated goodness in the ARCONA squeeze tube is THE BEST - hands-down- "scrub" I have ever used. I've now recommended it to EVERY single person who asks a darn thing about facial care. It leaves the skin smelling amazingly, clean (like, squeaky-clean!), and taut (no need for Botox!). I can't even think of a better definition for "clean" than this gommage. I would BATHE in it if I could. It IS a bit pricey, but I used my Birchbox points for it and a little goes a long way, so I plan on having this for a long while.
