Arcona Mandarin Brightening Peel Review:
I really loved this peel! The smell is nice; it has a citrus-y scent, if you couldn't already figure that by the name of this peel. It goes on pretty much clear, and you only need a little to get the job done. You may feel a tingling sensation when you first apply it, which is normal and isn't too intense. It goes away pretty quickly actually and I actually like the tingle.

You only need to leave this on for about 4 to 6 minutes, rinse and pat dry. I usually do this for 5 minutes... sometimes even 10 depending on what I'm doing and how close of watch I'm keeping on the clock.

My skin was visibly brighter and definitely smoother after using this. The long term benefits, like helping with dark spots, will come with continued use. I guess my only complaint would be it is a little pricey for the size of this peel - then again, it's pretty comparable to other peels in the same category and same quality of product (like Philosophy's The Microdelivery Peel or Erno Lazslo's C-Peel).

Overall, a really great peel that I will enjoy until the very last drop! I'd recommend it!
