Today, I have a facial scrub for you all from Acure Organics.
“Seas” the day with natural exfoliation from the ocean! Organic sea kelp and lemon peel gently exfoliate your skin while French green clay removes impurities from your pores without taking your natural moisture with it. Organic chlorella growth factor and argan stem cells and Madonna lily stem cells help brighten. It’s a deep cleansing, brightening experience. “Sea” the difference today!
Apply small amount to wet face and gently scrub with your lightest fingertips. Rinse thoroughly with water. Use 3 times per week for best results.
USD 9.99 for 4 fl oz/118 ml (excluding any shipping and taxes).
My Experience with Acure Argan Stem Cell + Chlorella Growth Factor Brightening Facial Scrub:
Acure Argan Stem Cell + Chlorella Growth Factor Brightening Facial Scrub comes in a tube which has a transparent flip top cap. The cap shuts tight and should hold itself while traveling. It has a small nozzle from which you can squeeze the product out. This one comes in a small 1 oz travel size tube as well.
The product is dark, black-green in color. The consistency is very thick. The gritty and scrubbing particles are packed throughout the product. It has a herbal, green tea-mehendi like fragrance.
The scrub particles have a perfect texture and are very minute. They are uniform and do not feel very harsh against the skin. It does have a few large particles as well, but instead of being gritty, they are very soft against the skin. The grit is very fine in this scrub and it is not coarse and not too abrasive.
The facial scrub is pricey as compared to other drugstore scrubs. The tube looks huge, but it is only 4 oz of product we are getting inside it. Only a pea-sized amount is required per use (the amount shown in the swatch is good enough for a single use, for face and neck), so this tube would last me long.
The facial scrub cleanses away all the dirt and dead skin off my face. I use it on wet skin and it spreads nicely. The consistency is very different from St. Ives scrub. When I used it for the first time, I was very skeptical about it, but as soon as I spread it on my skin, all my doubts vanished. I like my scrubs to be a bit harsh and this one fit my equation. It can be harsh or gentle depending on how much pressure one applies while using. It is better to be apply on wet skin because it can be a bit harsh on dry skin.
It cleanses my skin thoroughly and along with this, I can skip my face cleanser. It does not break me out, but it does not do anything to calm my acne either. But it calms my sensitive skin and leaves my skin squeaky clean without stripping off all the moisture. My skin does not feel stretchy and I do not have to run for moisturizer.
It does brighten my skin, but that’s a temporary effect. It has a lot of antioxidants, but how much good these ingredients do to the skin in just 2 minutes. Antioxidants should stay on the skin for actually making some difference which cannot be possible with scrub any way.
