Its natural, luxe formulas and products are so different to the norm, and its just hit Australia. 

LA-based skin care brand Arcona is being introduced in Australia.

LA-based skin care brand Arcona is being introduced in Australia.

Love her or loath her, Kim Kardashian swears by their wine oil (yes really – wine for your face).

Founded in 1989, Arcona is dedicated to producing natural paraben-free high-end skin care, for both professional and home use.

Products are infused with natural enzymatic-based ingredients including high concentrations of antioxidants, plant lipids and extracts, sea vegetables, essential oils, vitamins and minerals.

The best bit? They are free from parabens, perfumes, dyes and any other toxic chemicals. Their philosophy is that colours, perfumes and consistency don’t change your skin – live, active ingredients do.

The high-end skin care brand has expanded from its spa-based beginnings where, we have been told, paparazzi eagerly wait outside to take a snap of the latest Hollywood starlets.

Here are two products you should sneakily add to your cart this year:

Arcona Wine Oil, $58, 15ml

Raise your glass for this product. Anything which sounds like wine might be involved we’ll happily give a go.

Its superhero ingredient, resveratrol, is an antioxidant molecule found in the skin of red grapes. It supports and nourishes the skin with linoleic and oleic acids from grape seed oil. This provides an anti-inflammatory and moisturising effect.

Our Verdict?

You don’t need to wait till 5pm for wine-o-clock. This oil works perfectly first thing in the morning, absorbing into the skin quickly and works great under make up or with foundation.

Arcona Tabula Rasa Pads, $35, 45 pads

These convenient cotton pads are soaked in a spot-fighting formula. Combating those unfortunate skin eruptions before that all important date, they also heal blemishes, cleanse and reduce pores. Allantoin and grape seed extract helps stimulate cell renewal.

Our Verdict?

Don’t let the slight tingle or strong essence put you off. This is only the naturally anti-septic witch hazel working its magic. Trust us – this is a little pot of goodness just waiting to be discovered.
