Today I’m sharing products from a brand that I quickly fell in love with: ACURE Organics. The previous products I tried from them were big hits for me and today I’m sharing two more products with you: their Moroccan Argan Oil ($17.99 CAD) and their Brightening Facial Scrub ($13.99 CAD). Let’s find out if these products are big hits as well…!

Moroccan Argan Oil
A true skin super food! Incredibly rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and proteins, argan oil helps restore texture and tone. Lightweight and easily absorbed, use it as a: facial serum, body + decollete massage oil, hair serum, hand + cuticle oil, soothes dry elbows + heels. This oil is often referred to as “liquid gold” so get yourself some beauty bling!
I’ve tried this product in the Rose version before and absolutely loved it! This one is just as great. I use it all over my face and neck after cleansing and on my décoleté after I shower. It absorbs well and leaves my skin feeling smooth.
I definitely use less now that’s it’s the summertime, especially on my neck. But I can’t go without it, it’s still a must in my skincare routine.
Brightening Facial Scrub
“Seas” the day with natural exfoliation from the ocean! Organic sea kelp and lemon peel gently exfoliate your skin while French green clay cleanses away excess oil without taking your natural moisture with it. Madonna lily stem cells help brighten skin’s appearance. “Sea” the difference today!”
I haven’t been using scrubs regularly this year, that is until I started using this one. What was I thinking?!? My face has been feeling AMAZING since I started using this one!
The directions say to use this up to three times a week so I use it every 2-3 days depending on how my face feels. I have a lot of pores that clog up very easily so they make my face feel rather rough. And depending on where I am in my monthly cycle my face can feel quite yucky with the added oil production and all. After using this scrub my face feels like a baby’s bum!
The instructions don’t say if you should cleanse your face or not before using this scrub, but since the French name is nettoyant exfoliant éclaircissant and nettoyant means cleanser, I do not use a separate cleanser before using this product. It does have a very wee bit of lather when you mix it with water, but it’s very very little.
You do have to be careful with the pressure you apply while using this scrub because it is a bit harsh and you could hurt your skin if you pressed too hard.
I really enjoy the scent of this scrub, but am having a hard time describing it. It’s herbal/natural with a hint of freshness, it’s really nice.
These are two more great products to add to my ACURE love! The Moroccan Argan Oil is perfect if you want an odourless oil or if you just want straight up argan oil without any other added ingredients – you can’t beat this! And the Brightening Facial Scrub makes my face feel SO SOFT!
