Antibacterial lotion for adolescent and adult acne clears acne lesions, reduces inflammation and prevents formation of comedones.  Combat skin eruptions, unclog pores and kill bacteria with lactic and salicylic acids.  Eradicate P-bacteria, the leading cause of acne, with antimicrobial totara extracts.  Clear skin and reduce inflammation with antibacterial manuka extract.

Like all products in ARCONA's skin therapy regimen, AM Acne Lotion is cosmeceutically formulated with pure, natural ingredients, cold-pressed in small batches to keep them fresh, active and super-effective.  For optimal results, we recommend using this product within six months of opening.  Change may be immediately noticeable;  however, full benefits are derived as skin is brought into balance by regular use.

I don't normally write reviews, but I feel it's a shame if people pass up such a good product because of poor application methods. Others have complained about the product's consistency. However, I have found better success and longer use (over 8 months per bottle), if I spray my face first with rose or lavender water and then carefully push the product's pump part way to get a smaller dose and spread a small amount all over my face. I cannot imagine spreading the product as-is over my face. It is way too concentrated. If you apply the product this way, you will find better results and the perfect moisture balance. I have tried many products including prescribed ones. This is by far the best, even if you don't have acne. I cannot say that I am completely acne free but this has balanced my skin and reduced my breakouts the most. It has even healed my skin a bit. Any breakouts I get are far smaller and go away much faster. I also get less pimples. If I stressed less and ate more green leafy vegetables, I might be completely acne free now, but for anything out of a bottle this is as good as it gets.

Let me start by saying that I love Arcona. Okay. I bought this to use as an all over treatment, to replace the benzoyl peroxide I was using. I don't think it was very effective at keeping acne at bay and my skin didn't respond favorably to the lactic acid in this product. Others however appear to have had some success with this as a spot treatment. I would contact Arcona directly and request a sample before plunking down for the bottle first, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Least Favorite Arcona Product So Far

By Laurie

from Minneapolis, MN

describe yourself Brand Buyer

Pros

    Cons

    • Ineffective

    Best Uses

      Comments about ARCONA AM Acne Lotion, Repair AM, 1.17 oz:

      I've been using this in conjunction with The Solution, Raspberry Acne Bar, Tabula Rosa, Cranberry Grommage, and the Tea Tree Mask. This is the only product I don't feel produces results. I alternate this with The Solution and it actually feels like I always take a step forward with that product then a step back with this one. I've been using it for about 2 months and I'm through my second bottle (this is also used up the fastest - I'm still on my first bottles for the rest of the items). I'm trying the Raspberry Clarifying Pads instead this time around.

      Additional note: I actively HATE the product packaging. The pump leaks, the cap will NOT stay on, and I would rather have a clear bottle (which past versions seem to have) so I know how much product is left. I haven't had trouble with any of the other packaging (and actually really like how the cleansing bar is packaged) so I know Arcona can do better.

        When it comes to acne treatments, the spot treatment is usually white,flaking,dry and smelly. You're engulfed in putrid egg stench. This treatment gel glides on, is effective for spot treatment or using all over the face. It will NOT dry out your skin. I love it.

          Comments about ARCONA AM Acne Lotion, Repair AM, 1.17 oz:

          Arcona is my new go-to brand for skin care. I've had problem skin my whole life, and this is the first thing (besides accutane) that's really made a difference. I started with the Tabula Rasa liquid, moved to the pads (which I prefer) and I've been adding new Arcona products to my regimen ever since. I use the AM Acne Lotion after washing with their Raspberry Acne Bar and I can skip moisturizing entirely. I feel like this product actually helps fade post-acne marks faster, too. I use this stuff morning and night, and then one or two nights per week I'll switch and use Night Breeze after washing. One pump is enough for me to cover my whole face. I love every Arcona product I've tried so far, and the results totally justify the price tag for someone who has been through years of problem skin struggles. Note: I leave at least 20-30 minutes between applying this and starting any makeup. If I don't have time, I just skip it and do Tabula Rasa & a moisturizer. This stuff does leave a bit of a sticky residue on the skin for a while, but it goes away, so just wait.

            I have chin area breakouts. I've tried everything from accutane, dermatologists, master barbers, red doored spas, retin-a, doxycycline, blue light therapy, microdermabrasion, etc. These were VERY temporary fixes.

            I love Arcona Acne Am Gel. This stuff does two things for me; stopped breakouts, and reduced inflammation. It took about a week and a half to kick in. I'm very happy with the results.

            When I opened the package, the bottle was broken and some of the liquid had spilled out. The top of the bottle doesn't screw on or stay on, so I have scotch-taped it to the canister. The squirt device still works, so I can extract the liquid, which works as well as the sample that my dermatologist gave to me. While the liquid works well, the top appears to have a manufacturing error, or perhaps, it's just a defective unit.

              I needed to stop using prescription products for my adult acne and I started having huge, continuous breakouts. The Arcona products are the only ones that keep it in check without spending a fortune. I use the raspberry soap twice a day, this lotion in the AM, the tea tree mask a couple times a week, or directly on a blemish, and one of the night serums at bed time. It has been a blessing.

              It is very liquidy and can spray out funny or run down your fingers, so is occassionally hard to apply. I had to send my last bottle back because the pump broke. I've also had the lotion congeal and not come out at all or come out in clumps. I've been using it now for a solid 10 months and not noticed any improvement in my acne. It does provide a lovely light moisture to my acne prone skin and is not greasy at all. It makes my so skin soft and doesn't clog my pores. I've kept using it because I like the way it makes my skin feel, although the appearance hasn't improved.

                • I say try it on all acne

                Comments about ARCONA AM Acne Lotion, Repair AM, 1.17 oz:

                I tried this line after my sister recommended it to me. I've had acne, blackheads and clogged skin my whole life, with nothing really helping it, and I've tried many, many lines to no avail. I've had the most success with Arcona, though it is a little intense - I equate using it on your skin with starting a new, radical diet. Both shock your system, and you go through withdrawals of one kind or another before finally becoming used to it. I saw results within the first week of using this lotion (along with the other items in the Problem Skin Kit[...]), and continue to see good results a few months later. They recommend using nothing but their products for the first chunk of time, and again I equate this with a diet - you have to get your skin accustomed to healthy ingredients first, then you can start adding other things back in. My skin, while usually frustratingly oily, has begun getting dry patches, but all I have to do is apply some of my favorite moisturizer to the dry parts and all is well. The pump on the travel-sized bottle of the lotion is kind of erratic (perhaps the spring is too tight?) and tends to squirt the product out in all directions (I recommend closing your fist around it as you pump, or even taking the top off and using a q-tip to extract some from the bottle), but the one on the full-sized bottle works just fine. I would recommend this brand, lotion and regimen to anyone with problem skin.

                  I have been using this product for 6 months combined with other Arcona products. After 2 months I noticed a change in my skin, and now I rarely break out at all. Wet your hands and spray a small amount in your palm to avoid the sticky texture. My skin does get a bit shiny shortly afterwards, but I just use blotting paper and it goes away after the first time doing so. My clear and re-texturized skin is worth it. I've tried every product on the market and NOTHING has EVER worked for me like this. The new packaging is easier to work with...don't let the old comments sway you...the pump is better.

                    I don't understand why everyone has a problem with the dispenser. It works fine if you put your fingertip right against or near the opening so you don't end up squeezing too much product out. Not that hard. Anyway, I love this Arcona product. It is one of my favorites. I notice a big difference in my skin when I stopped using this and switched to Arcona's other acne spot treatment product Tabula Rasa. I don't know why, but my skin liked the AM Acne Lotion much better than the Tabula Rasa. With the Tabula Rasa I continued getting breakouts, but with the AM Acne Lotion, I basically stopped having breakouts and if I did have any, they were super small and went away quickly. I am definitely reordering this again and switching back.
