TIA Review by Ann:
Arcona Pumpkin Lotion 10% is a strong and effective treatment for exfoliating and rejuvenating areas of your body other than your face. This is not a body lotion, nor is it particularly moisturizing. The 10% refers to glycolic acid, which can be very irritating and harsh if not used carefully. I personally don’t have particularly sensitive skin and the 10% concentration was definitely strong enough to see marked results.
This is not a wimpy formulation; it contains very few ingredients and each is determined to do a thorough job. Glycolic acid is the second ingredient, followed closely by pumpkin ferment, another AHA. These two strong exfoliators and lighteners are balanced with oils for calming, healing and antioxidant protection. Fructooligosaccharides provide collagen building and moisture retention. Clove oil, an anti-bacterial ingredient recommended for helping with acne, can also be found among the list of ingredients.
The directions say to use this lotion daily, and I started out following them but had to reduce my use as it was too strong for everyday use. If I’d shaved my legs - whoo! It would sting upon application. My decollete would be left irritated and rashy. While my skin was feeling softer and firmer, it was also dry. Every third day worked best for me.
I found that if I added a few drops of argan oil to the treatment, it had great results. The next day my skin was glowing. I would recommend trying this the night before you have to wear a swimsuit.
Pumpkin Lotion gets right to work on shrinking pores, diminishing age spots and even lessening body creases and wrinkles. My forearms got quite a bit of sun this summer, and I was less than diligent about applying sunscreen. As a result, I had quite a bit of freckling, dryness and hyperpigmentation. This treatment felt like I was taking an eraser to my arms. My knees look plumper and my chest is smoother.
I have only one gripe - the fragrance. It smells like a scented candle. And not like when you walk past one of those candle stores - it’s like you have your nose in the jar. It lasts for a while too. It helped to add the argan oil. Although that doesn’t have a fragrance, it lessened the pumpkin lotion’s aroma.
I am familiar with the Arcona product line and have used its products for a few years now. The brand doesn’t seem to cut corners and uses only what is necessary in each product. I recommend the pumpkin lotion 10% with two thumbs up. Just remember that a little goes a long way.
