Acure Organics: Healthier Living for a Greener Planet

This is a sponsored post that contains affiliate links.

After getting my hands on a couple Acure Organic samples back in the spring, I knew this skin care line was special. Acure Organics graciously sent me the products above to try out and review.  Over the last 2 months, I've used the majority of these products daily.  I've grown very fond of Acure Organics, and I just know if you try them out, you will love them just as much as I do.  

Keep reading to find out a few of my favorites!

“I founded Acure Organics as a way to honor my grandmother, who battled breast cancer for over 10 years. I wanted to help raise money for breast cancer research and awareness while also providing healthy products that promote healthier living and a greener planet. We are proud to donate to Bright Pink and to help provide free mammograms to at risk women.”—Kristy Guerra 

Now, on to some of the products I've had the opportunity to use for the last couple months...

Brightening Facial Scrub ($14.99):
Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub
At any given moment, there's 4-5 different brands of facial scrubs setting around in my bathroom.  However, since using Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub, I haven't touched any others.  I've been using it every other day, and what a difference!  

Not only do I apply it do my face, but I also apply it to my chest area.  This exfoliating scrub has some texture to it, but it's extremely fine and doesn't hurt when applying.  I've used other brands that literally made my skin hurt from all the large exfoliating beads.  This one is just right.

From the Acure Website:

Organic Sea Kelp gently exfoliates your skin while French Green Clay and Organic Lemon Peel remove impurities from your pores. Organic Chlorella Growth Factor and Argan Stem Cells help stimulate new cell growth while providing a deep cleansing, brightening experience.

Day Cream ($18.99)
Acure Organics Day Cream
I'm always keeping an eye out for a good moisturizer, 
and Acure Organics Day Cream is outstanding.  This cream is for normal to dry skin, and helps hydrate, restore and firm the skin. 

I use it every day before applying my makeup.  I have issues with flaking skin around my nose and cheeks which becomes very visible after applying foundation.  Since using this day cream, I no longer have problems with the dry skin around my nose.  I also like how it adds just the right amount of moisture and doesn't leave my skin oily or greasy.

From the Acure Website:

Night Cream ($19.99)
Acure Organics Night Cream
Since turning the big 3-0, I've noticed a lot of changes with my skin.  The biggest change for me is the dullness that my skin seems to have now.  Also, my pores seem larger and more noticeable.  After reading  throught some articles, I noticed one product that a lot of women mentioned; night cream.  Until a couple months ago, I'd never used a night cream.  I've stayed on a schedule, and I make sure to apply Acure Organics Night Cream before going to bed.  It also helps with hydration, restoration, and is for normal to dry skin.  

From Acure Website:

Nature’s nocturnal miracle! Age-fighting Argan Stem Cells, shown to help the skin’s natural repair process, firm and moisturize while 2% Chlorella Growth Factor fortifies collagen and elastin fibers.

Dry Shampoo ($12.99)
Acure Organics Dry Shampoo
I became very excited when saw this little bottle peeking out of the box... it's Acure Organics Dry Shampoo.  I have a very short pixie cut, and dry shampoo has became one of my favorite hair products.  Before using dry shampoo, I always washed my hair every day. I'm such a hard sleeper, and we all know what that means.. my hair is a hot mess in the mornings!  
With this dry shampoo, I apply it generously throughout my hair at the scalp while I finish getting ready.  I usually apply my makeup, and leave it setting for about 15 minutes.  This gives it time to help soak into the oils in your hair. I believe a lot of ladies don't do this step, and just brush it through right after applying it to the hair.  I get better results the longer I let it set and do it's trick.

From Acure Website:

Easy to use, fast-acting dry shampoo that absorbs oil and removes grime without water! Argan Stem Cells + CoQ10 add a keratin boosting moisture complex to this natural dry shampoo. Convenient and effective!
