Minimalist Product Review: Arcona Cranberry Gommage Exfoliant

Minimalist Product Review: Arcona Cranberry Gommage Exfoliant



Lately, my typically clear skin has become unrecognizable. My low-maintenance facial routine couldn't contend with my new facial issues: erupting pimples all over, stubborn dry patches on my cheeks, and oily areas on my forehead and nose. My face went completely haywire overnight it seemed, and the usual routine just wasn't cutting it! 

Confession: I've been slacking on my sloughing-—big time. Life has been so hectic lately that I've pretty much abandoned my regular exfoliation routine, and it shows.

When a close friend suggested I give Arcona Cranberry Gommage a try, I figured it couldn't hurt. Little did I know, it would not only return my blemish-free visage, but give me a more even, smooth complexion over time!

The Claim for Arcona Cranberry Gommage:

 Exfoliant containing cranberry extracts, volcanic minerals and essential fatty acids, to cleanse and renew all skin types. Smells berry delicious. Cleanses, tones and decongests enlarged pores, leaving skin clearer, smoother and more refined. Unclog and minimize pores with cranberry and raspberry enzymes.

Exfoliate and purify skin with salicylic acid, volcanic minerals and sucrose that work deep within the follicular wall and provide antimicrobial, antibacterial benefits. Protect skin with the anti-aging properties of antioxidants that prevent free radical damage.

My experience: 

Fresh out of the bottle, Arcona Cranberry Gommage is a deliciously grape-scented, lavender-hued scrub. Suggested use is twice weekly, but I reach for this exfoliant daily! more often because it's such a treat.

I can feel the difference immediately after applying Arcona Cranberry Gommage to my face and neck. I use a gentle circular scrubbing motion with the pads of my fingers. Rinsing clean, my skin feels so soft and smooth and moisturizer just glides on once I'm out of the shower..

It only took about a week of using  Arcona Cranberry Gommage for me to see the results. I received a number of compliments ranging from "your skin looks so good," and "what do you use," to "you're glowing!" Nothing else changed in my regimen, so I have to credit the  Cranberry Gommage!

While I found the scrub gentle enough for sensitive skin, it also has the right amount of grit to be effective. The polishing action instantly brightens, leaving you with fresh, glowing skin after regular use. 

For this reason, if you aren’t into a scrub that actually scrubs, what’s wrong with you? Arcona Cranberry Gommage might not be the product for you. 

Arcona Cranberry Gommage is specifically recommended for normal to oily skin, but my wacky winter combo skin got great results. Don't be afraid to try it out if your skin tends toward the dry end of the spectrum.
