Product Review: Acure Organics + A Giveaway

After learning that our body absorbs about 65% of what we put onto our skin, I decided that I slowly wanted to make the switch to more natural/plant based skincare products.  I'll admit that I could never give up the makeup that I use {I have yet to find an all natural makeup line that really wows me}, but sometimes you just got to do what you can and make little changes here and there.  

I started browsing the beauty aisles at Whole Foods and was immediately drawn to Acure Organics packaging {I am such a sucker for cute packaging + clever product wording!}, and had heard great things about the brand so I decided to first try out the Argan Cleansing Towelettes, the Day Cream, the Cream Cleanser, the Cell Stimulating Face Mask, and the Radical Resurfacing Treatment.

After testing out Acure for the past few weeks, here's my thoughts on the above mentioned products:


  • I love, love, love, the fact that all of Acure products are 100% certified organic.
  • They all smell lovely, similar to essential oils!
  • All products feature plant based stem cell technology - pretty cool!
  • All of the products that I've tried absorb really well!  No greasy mess left over afterwards.
  • The Argan Cleansing Towelettes do a very effective job cleaning off all of my makeup {minus waterproof mascara} and leave my face feeling fresh + tingling afterwards.
  • I've been actually reaching for the Day Cream over any of my other lotions & creams that are sitting on my vanity {including pricey La Mer!}.  I just wish that it contained sunscreen!
  • The cream cleanser is probably my least favorite.  It stings my eyes when I wash off my eye makeup :(
  •  The Radical Resurfacing Treatment immediately removes any redness from my skin, and sinks in really fast.  It's still too early to tell if it will even out my skin tone, but I'll keep you guys posted!
  • I've only used the face mask twice, but both times afterwards, my skin feels super soft and is glowing.  I love that it doesn't get really tight like most mud/clay masks do.














All in all, I'm really happy with most of the products that I've tried {with the exception of the cream cleanser}, and will most definitely be repurchasing!  I also can't wait to try their line of hair care products :)

  2. I love trying new skincare products, especially organic lines. I've heard that it takes 26 seconds for your skin to absorb any products that you put on. Not sure if this is true but using organic always makes me feel better about taking care of my skin. Email: megankeown9@gmail.com
