Banish Bad Skin with Arcona


We are obsessed with Arcona, Kelly has the luxury of going to their studio once a month in Santa Monica while I am still trying to find time for a facial there on one of my trips.  But luckily, I can get their products online!  My absolute favorite of the line is the Kiwi Clarifying Peel, I use it several times a week (right before going out for glowing skin!) and though it’s a bit messy with the kiwi seeds and it stings like hell for a few minutes, it is so worth it!  I have been a bit stressed with traveling and working and my forehead resembles my son’s connect the dots game so I dabbed some of my Kiwi mask on the spots over night and though they are not gone, they are 80% improved.  I also feel like my skin is flawless after a treatment.  It’s really incredible and for me to give such a strong endorsement says something– it says ” go get yourself one ASAP!”  Arcona Kiwi Peel

  1. Is this comparable to the glyco peel from NB? Or used in addition to it. My daughter is having a tough time with acne on her forehead and I have used the Glyco Peel without too much success.

  2. Arcona’s Raspberry Peel is amazing too. I usually alternate it with Somerville’s Kate in a jar, they both make my skin glow.

  3. Hi Coachwife, it is different from the glycol peel. I still use the Glycol and it is my favorite, this is a mask!

  4. Thank you for your reply. I think I will order this when my NB Diamond Mask runs out. I still love all the NB products you have recommended and still follow many of your recommendations from your night routine. Thank you again for all that you do.

  5. Dear Tina,

    Do you still use the glyco peel during the weeks that you are using it? Also, you sometimes leave it on overnight?

  6. I swear by Arcona now! It is seriously the best secret in beauty. My skin has NEVER been flawless and it is pretty damn close now that I am getting regular treatments. If you ever are in Santa Monica, get the facial and you will plan to move here just for the perfect skin! Not kidding.
