I recently stumbled across a new line of personal care products from a company called Acure. They may or may not be new, but they’re new to me. I have found every product I’ve tried to be of exceptional quality, and the company also does many other things I love–many of their products are Fair Trade (which guarantees livable wages for workers and their families), their bottles are made from recycled plastics, they plant trees, they donate profits to worthy causes, and the ingredients live up to my strict standards. For example, the bottle of body lotion I’m currently holding is vegan, paraben free, sulfate free, cruelty free, and free of synthetic fragrances. Many of the ingredients are organic too.
My personal favorites include:
- Energizing Mandarin Orange and Mango Body Lotion - very intense moisture without a greasy feeling. Love the fragrance from essential oils only. One tree planted for every bottle sold.
- Brightening Facial Scrub – I have tried so many exfoliators and this is by far my favorite! I can’t say enough good things about it. I love the fine grit and it actually makes my face feel so soft and smooth afterwards, not irritated or raw like it has been from harsher scrubs. Read the reviews on their site and you’ll see I’m not alone in my opinions. Highly recommended.
- Lemongrass Conditioner - Very nice fragrance and very moisturizing without weighing down my hair. I have a hard time finding good conditioners that don’t contain synthetic fragrances and this is one of the best ones I’ve tried in years.
- Radical Resurfacing Facial Lotion – I’ve been using this for less than a week, so I haven’t really seen any changes in some of my hyperpigmentation or blotchiness, but I’m happy with the feel and scent of the lotion. I’ll be curious to see if it really can even out my skin tone.
