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

ARCONA™, Inc.

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 first tried Arcona's Desert Mist in the summer and thought it was too heavy for my combo, acne-prone skin. Then I tried it again in the fall and loved how it immediately and thoroughly moisturized my skin, without causing breakouts. I also love that it has no chemicals. I use it under Arcona's Reozone SPF 20 -- my skin has never looked better. A definite repurchase for those harsh NYC winters.

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 fl oz:

        I know the smell puts you off at first. You have to use it for about a month. After that you won't notice the smell or you'll even begin to like it! Once you see the benefits to your skin, you'll dismiss the scent altogether. It truly is cummulative. I was unsure of what exactly the product literature meant by that, but I can see it now. My skin feels like it did when I was a teenager. I can even sit with my chin in my hand and not break out from trapped moisture. I have very dry skin and going on, Arcona products don't feel like they are moisturizing, but they are. I guess they are bringing the skin back into balance so you don't need so much moisturization. Whatever it is they do, they feel wonderful and look even better! I had no idea my pores had become larger until I started using Arcona and noticed how much smaller they had become after a few short weeks. It is definitely worth the price tag - especially since you use so little that it lasts so long!

          There are many aspects of this product that I absolutely love - first and foremost is the smell - it is extremely refreshing - there is something very therapeutic about the aroma!.. In addition, it makes my skin feel and look smooth! I have several ARCONA products and I love them all, but this is by far my favorite.

            I am 50 years old and am often told I look around 35. I have been using the Arcona line for over two years now ( the longest I have EVER committed to one particular product line) Desert Mist is probably my favorite product from the Arcona line and I go into withdrawals if I ever run out. It is the last step in my morning skin care routine and after I put it on, I feel like my skin breathes a sigh of relief! It soothes my skin and makes it feel instantly protected and pampered. i LOVE it and will not go without it!

            Seals in the moisture from the Arcona serums I use.
            My skin feels moist and glows during the entire day even inside.
            Can wear Arcona mineral powder over it.

            Yes, I'm being redundant, but this stink potion works miracles. The smell's overpowering at first (smells like fish sauce), but after finishing off my morning skin care routine, including putting on my makeup, the smell disappears. The potion works all day long and keeps my skin smooth and soft. Not heavy and doesn't clog my pores. Application is a little tricky at first. I use one pump into the palm of my hand and use my fingertips to distribute over my face and neck. Love it!

              Arcona products are absolutely the best thing I have ever tried. I live in a very dry climate (10%max humidity) and ever since I started using Arcona my complexion has changed visibly. The tiny, annoying wrinkles have gone. I highly recommend her 5 steps program.
