Today I’m excited to be able to offer a giveaway to you guys! Acure Organics is a family owned and operated company that I discovered last year and I’ve really loved their products so far. Acure uses the highest quality natural, fair trade, and certified organic ingredients in their skin care products and are paraben free, cruelty free, and sulfate free. They sent me a box of stuff to try several months ago so I could consider a few things for the magazine and they are definitely a brand I’ll be repurchasing from. They also kindly sent a few doubles which I’m going to giveaway to one lucky reader! See giveaway details at the end of this post.
Mint Body Wash
Though at first this body wash might have an overpowering mint scent (all natural) it grows on you – or at least it did for me. Now I absolutely love using this body wash. It has an aromatherapeutic quality that really helps to open the sinuses and refresh and energize the body. It leaves skin smooth, hydrated, and doesn’t leave any sort of residue. It contains lilac stem cells which are shown to help reduce breakouts, and sea buckthorn, CoQ10, and Argan oil for hydration. It is 100% biodegradable, vegan, and free of parabens, gluten, synthetic fragrance, silicone, and phthalates. At just $9.99 per bottle it is also much more affordable than a lot of the natural body washes out there these days.
Pure Mint + Echinacea Stem Cell Shampoo / Conditioner
These have the same invigorating mint aroma as the body wash which might take one or two washes to get used to but I found them to be really suited to my fine hair. This shampoo actually was gentle enough to not irritate my scalp and make it itchy like most shampoos do. It left my hair clean, gave it a little bit more volume (hard to tell as my hair is also getting super long), and made it feel soft but not weighed down.
Lavender+ Echinacea Stem Cell Calming Body Lotion
I keep this on my bedside table because I use it literally every day and always when I get out of the shower, or if I just want to hydrate my elbows, hands etc before bed. It has kind of an herbal scent from the lavender but isn’t strong and is actually soothing. I have super sensitive skin that gets irritated so easily and my skin loves this stuff! It soaks right in without leaving any residue which I also love.
Argan Cleansing Towlettes
I don’t use cleansing towlettes very often in the winter, but in summer, when I work out outside more often, or when I travel these are so good to have. These are 100% biodegradable (awesome!) and unscented so if you are sensitive to smells these are wonderful. I don’t use them around my eyes because my eye area is so sensitive that any towlette makes my skin there kind of burn – no matter the brand, but I love them for everywhere else. I don’t have too much else to say about these, because I only use them once in a while, but at $8.99 a pack, if I were going on a road trip or something I’d definitely buy them again.
Facial Cleansing Cream Argan Oil + Mint
I just completely finished one of these and it has been one of my very favorites lately. I need to get another asap! This formula is extra gentle, works to remove dirt and makeup (non-waterproof), and is hydrating. It contains their Skin-Immune Technology which helps to distress skin and protect against environmental aggressors. I felt like my skin was really happy when I was using this in my daily regimen and I also love that it is 100% biodegradable and works well with my Clarisonic too.
Facial Toner Balancing Rose + Red Tea
The sprayer on this bottle creates such a nice fine mist, which if you use a lot of face mists you know is a beautiful thing! You only need 2-3 sprays to gently cover the entire face with a thin mist. I love that the ingredients in this are super simple – just a handful of them. Organic Rooibos, Organic Calendula, Organic Chamomile, Organic Witch Hazel, Organic Bulgarian Rose Water (Hydrasol), and Organic Glycerin. It smells more of the red tea than the rose so if you like the smell of that then you’ll love this.
These lip glosses come in cute little tubes and are super hydrating and have sheer glossy colors. They’re made with organic Argan Oil and Echinacea Stem Cell. They’re free of parabens, gluten, synthetic fragrance, silicone, and phthalates. So far I find myself reaching for Shmexy the most. It is a super smooth, light tinted gloss that just gives a beautiful and natural sheer hint of color and shine. It is great alone or over lipstick. These smell lightly fruity and really quench dry lips while making them look a bit fuller. The other two shades, Daaang! and No Strings are shimmers – a plummy purple and marsala red. $7.99 ea. It looks like they’re out of several of these colors on their website right now (they typically offer five shades) but you can win these three in the giveaway!
