Acure Organics Brightening Scrub Review
Hi all! Transitioning into a new season can be hard on the skin because it has to adapt to the weather changes. My skin tends to get very dry during the cooler seasons and it also tends to leave flaky patches around. My best tip to combat dryness is to exfoliate occasionally! My go-to exfoliator is Acure Organic's Brightening Scrub which retails for $9.99.
Ingredients: Organic Curoxidant™ Blend [(Organic Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Berry, Organic Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry), Organic Rosa Canina (Rosehips), Organic Punica Granatum (Pomegranate), Fair Trade Organic Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos)], Organic Calendula Officinalis (Calendula), Organic Matricaria Recutita (Chamomile), Organic Aloe Barbensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Vegetable Glycerin, French Green Clay, Organic Lemon Peel Granules, Saponified Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Cellulose Gum (Vegetable), Organic Olea Europaea (Olive Oil), Organic Ascophyllum Nodosum (Sea Kelp), Theobromo Cacao (Cocoa) Powder, Organic Chlorella Pyrenoidosa (Chlorella Growth Factor), Chlorophyll, Glucono Delta Lactone (Fermented Sugar), Carageenan, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Stem Cells, Organic Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Potassium Sorbate (Food Grade Preservative), Essential Oil Blend of Salvia Officinalis (Sage) and Mentha Spicata (Spearmint).
The price point for this is amazing! I love how it contains nourishing ingredients like chamomile, calendula, and olive oil.
It's also easy to control how abrasive or gentle you want the scrub to be. To make it more gentle, add more water and lather with hands first then gently scrub directly on the face.
It leaves my skin feeling like new but without drying it out or breaking it out! After using it for a few months, once every week, I notice that it evened out my skin tone and faded my acne scars.
Although this scrub doesn't break me out, it does contain coconut oil, which I could totally go without.
Have you tried this? How often you exfoliate your skin?
*Update 11/24/16: Unfortunately, this does contain Coconut Oil which caused my skin to breakout. I will still use this on my body like my elbows and knees.
