Acure Organics Facial Scrubs

Acure Organics is an amazing brand that is perfect for green newbies and natural beauty experts alike. They have a wide selection of products for any and every skin and hair type and personal preference you can imagine. You would be really hard pressed to find a greenie who doesn’t like them, their stance on personal care, and/or their products. They’re kind of like the rock stars of affordable and healthy beauty. As a side note, you should also be following them on Instagram because they have a social media superstar who posts awesome and hilarious things on a daily basis.

Anyway, the point of this post is to talk about their scrubs. My all time, absolute favorite facial scrub is their Brightening Facial Scrub. It’s amazing. The scent reminds me so much of Tazo’s Zen Green Tea. It’s fresh and lively, and maybe just a bit earthy, with a hint of spearmint. It provides a powerful exfoliation, while still being gentle, that leaves my skin looking so fresh and radiant. I absolutely adore this green grit that is not too coarse, but still leaves you feeling like it’s getting the job done, and getting it done right. I use this scrub about 3 times a week and love the way it leaves my skin feeling. It truly is brightening and does an excellent job of making my skin look brand bright and new.

I ran out of my dearly beloved and ordered their newest facial scrub offering instead. Their Pore Minimizing Scrub is very gentle with a super fine texture and a sweet berry scent. I don’t see a noticeable difference in my skin after using this but I can definitely feel it because it leaves skin feeling silky soft and smooth. It doesn’t have much grit to it so I can see it becoming a favorite for someone with highly reactive, sensitive skin. I don’t really love the smell but it’s not awful, either. I don’t personally love the Pore Minimizing Scrub but I think it’s only because I love the Brightening version so much. I’m passing this one on to my Mom because I think it will really suit her skin.

Remember, something that works for me might not work for you and something that I didn’t care for might be your perfect product. Always keep that in mind when reading blog reviews.

I also want to mention that Acure has incredible customer service. I mentioned that I didn’t love the Pore Minimizing Scrub and they contacted me and offered to sned me a tube of the Brightening Scrub. How nice is that? I really appreciate and admire companies who have such wonderful customer service. In a world where there are so many different companies and places to shop I will always choose to spend my money at stores and on companies who are kind.

Which scrub is the one you think you would like most? Do you have a favorite product from Acure? Let me know!
