Arcona Magic White Ice Moisturizing Gel Review | Naturally Hydrates & Tones All Skin Types

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Arcona Magic White IceArcona Magic White Ice is a natural anti-microbial hydrating gel suitable for all skin types. White Ice is formulated to moisturize, tone and help stimulate cell renewal.

Arcona is proud of the fact that it only uses natural ingredients in all its skin care lines. It doesn't use chemical stabilizers, petro-chemicals or fillers.

Acona says that White Ice should be used within 6 months of opening, as it is made with natural ingredients so they won't last as long as other products.

Users Conclusions

Listed below is a summary of what users have been saying in online reviews:


  • Very light
  • Absorbs into the skin
  • Provides just enough moisture
  • Cleans pores
  • Great for oily skin


  • Strong scent (very few didn't like the smell but most people like it)
  • Could be irritating to sensitive skin, although most people had no noticeable irritation
  • Not enough moisture for dry skin


I think the best way to apply this as with most moisturizing gels, is to apply a small amount to the palms, add a couple of drops of water, then apply a thin layer to the skin.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel Review | Oil-Free Face Moisturizer to Hydrate Skin

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel is a lightweight daily facial moisturizer. Amazon customers have praised the moisturizer for being an excellent gel to control those unsightly breakouts we all hate.

Clinique has labeled it for use on all skin types but everyone's skin is different. Some users with dry skin said that it wasn't moisturizing enough for them and in some cases dried their skin out. It does contain alcohol which can cause a drying affect.

This moisturizing gel is oil free, that's one reason why it is a good choice for skin prone to break-outs. More oil will just block pores and encourage pimples and black heads.

Some of you will be glad to hear that it is fragrance free. It also has a delightful pump dispenser which stops the build up of bacteria.

The down side is that Clinique has not added an SPF to this gel, so it won't provide any sun protection.

Several users have said that the gel is light, non-sticky and absorbs quickly, that's good because I hate it when you have that sticky feeling after applying moisturizer. Also a little goes a long way so gentle pumping ladies!

This product contains a lot of synthetic chemical ingredients, so not ideal for those who are eco-friendly or drawn towards natural products.

It comes in at a very reasonable $14.50-$28 (1.7oz/4.2oz) a pop, so it won't break the bank.
