This deeply renewing treatment takes the graveyard shift for your skin’s sake, laboring through the night to decongest pores, stimulate skin’s immune system, and reverse the signs of aging that plague your waking moments.

How to Use

Limit use to two to four times a week (these babies are potent). After cleansing and before turning in for the night, gently sweep one pad over face, neck, and décolletage in a circular motion.

Agua (Distilled Water), Glycerine, Glycolic Acid Polymer, Beta Glucosamine, Beta Fructan, Spin Trap (Phenyl Butyl Nitrone), Lavandula Angustifolia Oil (Lavender), Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extracts, and Grapefruit (Citrus Grandis) Seed Extract.

Very spendy but this product gives me benefits.

Please do not get discouraged if you have a burning sensation.

This product is supposed to exfoliate your skin while you sleep. So while there is a slight burn once put on, it goes away. If it does not go away after a minute or two definitely wash it off. I've felt the burn but never had any problems with it going away. I like it, it makes me feel like it's working.

I have adult acne which I battle. If I've had a bad bought of Acne and it's passed, my skin and other products have done their job, I still need to heal up the skin and remove the bad stuff. This helps get deep down so that even if you choose to use an exfoliant the following day (I recommend) this product has done it's job to loosen it all up and exfoliating then removes it off of your face leaving healthy less pigmented skin.

I can say I get better healing, less scars and a faster turn around time with dark spots ever since I've added this.

I admit it is very pricey. I recently found a brand that does not test on animals and use the same kind of form. I am hoping it will work as good as this.

Speaking of finances, I use a clean cotton pad and soak up the fluid and apply. This helps the container last a lot longer for me then if I just used their pads and tossed it. Which is really helpful financially.

While it's very rare I get to have Arcona products, they do seem to give me benefits. I have noticed other brands here on Birchbox that seem to do much of the same and again With Out testing on Animals. Thank you Birchbox for helping me find a much more affordable replacement. For those who can afford it I can say this particular product does a great job.

Great in my routine

I purchased these pads after reading about them on a fav beauty blog. It's the first chemical exfoliate that I've tried and I love it. I have sensitive and acne prone skin, and it has helped improve the look of my acne scars. The instructions say to use 2-4 times a week, and I find 2 sufficient. It stings a bit upon application, but it quickly resolves itself. I will repurchase for sure.

Effective & Perfect

This product is potent so make sure you follow the usage instructions! It does sting ever so slightly but it's a chemical exfoliator so that's to be expected. I've been using this for about a month and couldn't be happier! I know you can't shrink your pores but this really helps with their appearance and taking down some spots!

When your skin needs a little help

OK- just finished my first container of these lovely pads. I think they will be very very great for summer. They work well but a little drying in the winter when we get the ugly cold dry weather. Overall very happy with the product. Would recommend for combo or more oily skin vs really sensitive or dry skin. Really like this brand. They make great products.
