All Skin Types

Unique protective barrier for skin defends against environmental damage and free radicals and reinforces daily hydration.  Seal skin against pollution, weather, chemicals and free radicals with antioxidant glutathione, vitamins C and E.  Hydrate with sodium PCA and mucin, natural humectants that pull moisture from the air to alleviate skin dryness. Repair and strengthen skin's collagen and elastin to see real changes in dry or aging skin.

Like all products in ARCONA's skin therapy regimen, Desert Mist 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.

Made in USA

Use in AM as needed:  Shake well and spray small amount into palm.  Evenly distribute over face, including eye area, lips, neck and decollete.

I have spent the last couple of months researching effective skin care ingredients and then comparing them to the ingredient lists of various products. This line is one of the best. Arcona products contain cutting edge ingredients. They are not crowded with fillers and preservatives and perfumes. For what they offer, these products are very reasonably priced.

I really like Desert Mist. My skin is aging (I'm 47), but is more normal to combination than dry. This product is very thin. It smells like Listerine and feels very oily. But it sinks right in and leaves my face soft and hydrated all day. The hydration plumps up fine lines and wrinkles.

I apply sunscreen over Desert Mist. I find that it works well with other products.

I got this in one of the kits and tried using it for about a month... The main problem I have with it is the smell (really unappealing). Don't buy this as a moisturizer, because it is NOT a moisturizer. It's just something you put on top of a moisturizer to protect your skin from the elements. It's also not an SPF, so you'll need that as an additional step as well. I didn't ever buy this product separately, because I didn't see any benefits worth the money plus it smells really gross. I prefer to have protection similar to this + moisturizer + SPF in one product (and therefore have less gunk on my face). That can be found in other organic lines...

    Comments about ARCONA Desert Mist, Protect AM, 1.17 oz:

    First thing: I wanted a new moisturizer an was really disappointed when this arrived and it was basically a serum. But Given the great return policy I decided to try it. I'm so glad I did! My skin looks 5 years younger. It is firmer, plumper and just has a glow I haven't seen in some time.

    It does have a strange consistency and smell, but the smell doesn't last and I like the way it makes my skin feel. Smooth and moisturized, but not too oily. I use it over Magic White Ice and under Reozone 40.

    Comments about ARCONA Desert Mist, Protect AM, 1.17 oz:

    I have been using this for a month now, applying it over my Magic White Ice. It can spray out a little randomly, but I just try to be careful and pump a bit onto my finger (it's very liquidy) and dot it on a few points on my face, then gently spread it around. You'll have to use 3-4 pumps to get your whole face and neck. It has kept my skin balanced and effectively prevented the dryness and flaking that usually comes with dry winter weather. It's also been keeping my skin from getting irritated from all the pollution (I have very sensitive skin). I put a little on my lips too (it tastes really bitter, just warning you) and it keeps them moist for the entire day. It smells like medicine, but the smell doesn't linger on your skin, and I really don't mind it. I absolutely love this and highly recommend it.

          Comments about ARCONA Desert Mist, Protect AM, 1.17 oz:

          I have only been using this product for a couple of weeks, so not sure about its ultimate value. But I want to mention that my cat knocked over the bottle onto its side, and a few hours later I noticed that there's a yellow substance that settles to the bottom. You would never know it's there when the bottle is upright, and it takes a lot of shaking and turning to mix it into the lotion.

          I have no problem with the odor at all, nor with pumping it into my palm to spread on.

            I use it before I put on my daily sunscreen - I feel like it gives me slight moisturization without being too heavy, but still gives me a barrier between my skin and sunblock. Good product.

            I have used ARCONA products for about a year. I have to say that I do not follow there skin care regimen . I think that it over exfoliates the skin. I do however use this product daily over my magic white ice. I love it. I soaks right in. It does smell a little like soy sauce, but once it soaks in you don't smell it anymore. Now I do have dry skin, but my t-zone gets oily throughout the day( I live in Nevada). This combo is great for me even during the winter.

              I use this as part of the total Arcona program. It is the last thing I apply (I never wear makeup) after cleansing and then applying White Ice. I use it every morning. My skin looks great. This line emphasizes exfoliation to constantly renew the skin rather than the application of heavy moisturizers. I have used it for about 5 years now.

                I use this product as part of the Arcona regimen, that is, I apply the Magic White Ice first and then put the Desert Mist on top. I find that the combination works very well to hydrate my skin in the summer (in the winter, I used a heavier moisturizer from Arcona under the Desert Mist). The smell doesn't bother me - it's not the most pleasant smell for sure, but I hardly notice it any more and it also disappears quickly. I'm not sure if this product would work well with other brands, but it definitely works well with other Arcona products.

                  This product is great for my sensitive combination skin. This is the last step in my morning beauty regimen before sunscreen, and--despite its liquidy consistancy--this is a great moisturizer. It has minimized my pores, has a clean scent, and makes my skin feel soft and hydrated.
