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, which they do not offer here for some reason), 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 Solution is a great exfoliant and skin-clearer, though I wouldn't recommend over-use. My skin looks and feels great the mornings after I use this, and has never been irritated. it can sting your blemishes a bit upon initial application, but this dies down immediately and isn't really a problem. I would recommend this regimen to anyone with problem skin.

I have had this product for about 2 weeks now and used it probably 5 times - bottle recommends PM use 2-4 times per week. I was surprised when I opened the bottle and went to put it on my fingers and found that it had a water like consistency - definitely not something that I am used to in serums. I cannot say that I have noticed a huge difference in my skin since using the product. It is slightly softer. I have sensitive acne prone skin and my skin usually reacts overnight to any product that it does not like. I had no reaction with this other than slightly softer skin. I have only had one small blemish since I started using this product. I bought this in combination with a couple of other products that were recommended through the skin analysis tool on this website, so I am not positive that this product is making a difference, or if the combination of products is making the difference. Too soon to tell if it will do all the things that it says that it will do, but so far so good. It does not cause any redness, does not have a bad smell, does not make my skin tight. I will continue to use this bottle and perhaps buy another in the future if my early results continue.

Very Drying and Irritating

      Comments about ARCONA The Solution, Repair PM, 1.17 oz:

      I used this product on my T zone only. It was very irritating and for several days my skin was red. It may be appropriate for very oily, thicker skinned individuals, but I do not recommend for fair, combination skin types. I ended up throwing the bottle away bc I could not use any more.

          I used this product for about 3 months (not daily, but on a semi-regular basis), but I threw the bottle away before it was gone. Expensive or not, I couldn't take the smell--like dirty gym socks plus toe lint!!--one more time. I didn't notice it doing much for me, although I adore Arcona Night Breeze, raspberry clarifying pads, and the AM acne solution and still use them. I also got a sample of the peptide serum, and I like that, too. This is the only "miss" in a brand that mostly "hits" for me. But since everyone else said they loved this stuff, I wanted to write about my experience with the smell, so that someone else who hated the odor would know they weren't crazy!

          Comments about ARCONA The Solution, Repair PM, 1.17 oz:

          I'm not sure exactly what this is supposed to do. I use it at night after I cleanse and it can sting a little if I have any open acne sores, which makes me think it's doing something. But I haven't noticed any improvement in my acne and I've been using it for the last 8 months- every night. It doesn't add any moisture, maybe it's even a little drying. It's a liquid and can be difficult to apply as it can run down inbetween your fingers when you squirt it in your palm. Like several other of Arcona's products, I wish were in a mist form so I could just spray it on.

              I use The Solution with the Papaya Enzyme (at night) and my skin has taken on a more alive, smoother look. I enjoy using this product because it is a spray clear liquid that doesn't clog pores, in fact they've become smaller.

              Comments about ARCONA The Solution, Repair PM, 1.17 oz:

              I have used both the gentle solution and the solution. I think that the solution is much more powerful and can dry out your skin if it is not oily. I have combination skin with breakouts on my cheeks and chin. I am convinced that this is what has cleared up my skin and made it much less oily. I have been getting alot of compliments lately on how clear and smooth my skin looks. When using this product remember that a little goes a long way. It really helps if you exfoliate in the morning at least 2-3x/week when using this product. I use the cranberry gommage in conjunction, the toner tea bar, the raspberry resurfacing pads at night and the cranberry firming gel in the AM. I have been tryig to find the right combo for my skin and so far this is it. Results are fabulous!

                Comments about ARCONA The Solution, Repair PM, 1.17 oz:

                I use this 2-3 times a week and alternate with other ARCONA nighttime products (Vitamin A Complex, Night Breeze, Papaya Enzyme) as per the ARCONA representative's recommendation. I like this product because it feels like it is deeply treating my occasional breakouts and blackheads. My skin feels tighter and super-clean after application. My one complaint is that I wish it were less liquid because it is slightly tricky to apply evenly. It would be easier to apply in a gel-type form.
                But I can definitely say that using the ARCONA line has made my skin positively glow. My occasional breakouts are a thing of the past, and overall my skin looks great even without makeup. I highly recommend trying the product line -- I noticed a difference within 2 weeks.

                Exfoliates deep into the skin, helps refine texture and tone, helps clear acne, and minimizes fine lines. It is drying but I use the grommage the morning after, and voila, my skin looks fabulous! I have tried Obaji and Image Skincare resurfacing products, both of which are pretty aggressive, but I definitely have seen the best results with this product. I use it as part of the Basic 5 and have had amazing results in my skin in just a few weeks. Can't wait to see what Arcona does for my skin longterm.
