Green Beauty Review: Acure Organics

I don’t typically take more than two weeks for a product review.  This gives me one week to try for myself, and one week to test on clients (if I like it initially).

This time, it took me much longer than that.  Not only did I have quite a bit of product to move through, but I kept trying it on others–looking for a con to all the pros I was seeing.  I didn’t find any.  This stuff is ah-mazing!  Let me tell you about it!

Acure Organics is family owned and operated.  It was founded on sustainable principles and they strive to find the best natural, organic and Fair Trade materials possible.  The care and values that go into these products is evident.  I especially like them because they are Gluten Free, Vegan, Cruelty Free, Paraben/Sulfate/Phalate Free, Free from synthetic fragrances and colors and do not contain harmful preservatives (IT CAN BE DONE!)

Love your Body–Mosturize

Ever heard of Acure Organics?? I hadn’t either except for the occasional suggestions from Twitter that I notice them.  My local Earth Fare began carrying their body lotion–it was on sale, so I tried it.  I was blown away!   I chose the Mandarin Orange + Moroccan Argan Stem Cell lotion.  It was light, smooth, fast-absorbing and smelled great!  I think what I enjoyed most is that my skin felt moisturized throughout the day.  It left me feeling silky smooth at citrus-ey–who doesn’t like that?!  My husband works outside all day, and even he mentioned how his skin didn’t feel dry at the end of the day.  Win-win!

I contacted Acure Organics to learn more about their company.  They decided to participate in my Green Your Beauty Routine for a local Girl Scouts USA troupe–how exciting is that?!  They were very helpful and I was excited to learn more about and experience Acure Organics.  Let me show you a few things we were able to share with my class and clients:

Tender Touch-Sensitive Skincare

This is a set I assembled with the Sensitive Facial Cleanser, Sensitive Facial Cream, Balancing Rose +Red Tea Facial Toner and the Cell Stimulating Facial Mask.  I tried this combination on all skin types–it worked great for everyone.  Some (who didn’t have “sensitive” skin perse’ ) even preferred this combo as it is unscented and very mild.  The Facial Cream is silky and rich without being greasy or heavy–and a little goes a long way, truly.  The moisture lasts all day-even on those prone to dry skin.  My favorite item from this set was the Cell Stimulating Facial Scrub.  Main active ingredients are: French Green Clay (perfect for pulling impurities out of the skin), Moroccan Argan Oil, CoQ10 and Sea Buckthorn Oil replenish and moisturize the skin-good stuff!

Daily Regimen-Normal To Dry Skin

This set contained Facial Cleansing Creme Argan Oil + Mint, Day Cream Gotu Kola Stem Cell + 1% Chlorella, Facial Toner Balancing Rose + Red Tea and Brightening Facial Scrub Sea Kelp + Chlorella.  I also used this set on all skin types with a few of my facial clients.  I really liked how clean and fresh the skin was after using the mint cleanser.  Be careful around the eyes–mint in the eyes is not entirely pleasant.  The balancing toner was very effective in prepping the skin to receive moisture–and it smells really lovely!  My favorite product in this happy set was definitely the Facial Scrub Sea Kelp + Chlorella.  It is super effective and smells like my favorite green drink!  Main active ingredients are: French Green Clay and Lemon Peel-great for removing impurities from the skin, Sea Kelp-for gentle effective exfoliation, and Organic Chlorella Growth Factor effectively stimulate new cell growth for brighter, more rejuvenated skin.  I have used this scrub on everything from rough summer feet to underarms and even as a pre-shave.  Love it!!

Bonus Points-Skincare Extras

These little treasures pack a big punch!  I could no sooner pick a favorite from the three, than I could a favorite child (no really!).  All three of these knocked my socks off!!  The Radical Resurfacing Facial Lotion is packed with lemon probiotic and chlorella growth factor to help with skin woes such as uneven skin texture and tone.  Another special ingredient to note is the Butterfly Bush Stem Cells that help with photoaging and free radical damage.  I noticed a difference in the redness I carry in my cheeks, as well as a few sun spots I have.  This stuff is awesome!

I am kinda an eye cream junkie.  I have genetic darkness under my eyes which is worsened by poor sleep and irritated sinuses.  I usually am not impressed and have made my own eye cream for a while now.  This Chlorella + Edelweiss Stem Cell Eye Cream was different, so different.  First off, I was SO very happy with size of the tube!  Its 2-4x the size of average eye creams, and very effective.  Not only did this eye cream effectively moisturize the delicate eye area, but it also helped diminish my undereye darkness.  I was a very happy girl! How does it work?? “Edelweiss Stem Cell and Chlorella Growth Factor protect and stimulate new collagen and reduce wrinkles and crows feet.  In clinical studies, Edelweiss Stem Cells reduced wrinkle depth of the eye contour area by 15% after 20 days!  CoQ10 relieves puffiness and dark circles.”  Seriously, try this eye cream!

Ahh, Marula Oil–a secret too good to keep…one of my new favorite natural oils!!  It is so versatile–like our friend coconut oil.  Marula oil is known for its moisturizing, antioxidant and protective properties.  It is rich in Vitamin E and oleic acid, essential properties in healthy skin, hair and nails.  I used this on my face in place of a night moisturizer/serum, on the ends of my hair after washing, and on my nails and cuticles.  It is light, rich and very hydrating.  My skin looks very fresh!  Acure Organics carries a “100% pure, wildcreafted without pesticides, coldpressed, unrefined Marula oil“.  It really is fantastic–a must in all beauty regimens!

Tres’ Glam Tresses- Herbal Hair Care

My hair tends to be on the dry side.  Its wavy/curly and has a mind of its own.  Most of the products I have tried either were too heavy and made my hair oily, or were too light and did nothing for me.  This Moroccan Argan Oil and Argan Stem Cell shampoo and conditioner was very nourishing.  My hair was silky and shiny–I should do a commercial!  Active ingredients include: Organic Argan Oil + Argan Stem Cells, CoQ10, and Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil.  This trifecta is rich in moisture and antioxidants.  Pumpkin Seed oil (rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids) is responsible for the beautiful shine you will notice.  This set is also safe for parched color treated hair.

I also loved this Argan Stem Cell + CoQ10 Dry Shampoo!  I use it on photoshoots to create texture in the hair and to absorb excess oil.  This is no bottle of talc or corn starch my friends!  Rich in Argan Stem Cells and CoQ10, your hair gets an extra dose of keratin, and a fresh look!  Definitely a must try!
