Usually we do Fast Five, but as you may have noticed, we're not quite there today. But, it's okay, as Acure Organics makes up for it with their high quality, low budget products. I am new to the brand, but have been massively impressed by everything I've been sampling. It's all so good! So, let's get to it....


Wait, just before we get to the goods, a little info about the brand du jour. Acure is a family owned and operated company founded on sustainable and attainable price points with the intent of steering people away from toxic ingredients. All of their certified organic, plant + food based products are free from gluten, parabens, sulfates, harmful preservatives, and artificial colours and never tested on animals.

Who isn't using oils? For face, body, and everything in between, oils have become one of my favourite ways to hydrate. The Aromatherapeutic Moroccan Argan Oil is a perfect option as it not only has a lovely, soft rose scent (coconut, citrus ginger, and straight argan are also available) but is a multi-purpose product that works as a repairing facial serum, body and decollete massage oil, hair serum, hand and curicle repairer and for soothing dry elbows.

The formula is simple with argan, orange peel, rose geranium, and lemongrass oils but in this case, simple works exceptionally well. The oil is light weight, absorbs easily and cleanly and leaves skin lightly scented.


Acure offers a pretty vast selection of body moisturizers, two which I've been slathering myself silly. First, a mini of the Calming Body Lotion (sold in a 236 ml tube) which features a fresh lavender scent and formulated with sacred lotus stem cell

For fragrance-free lovers, the Ultra-Hydrating Body Lotion with cocoa butter and CoQ10 offers a rich but light formula that really moisturizes dry, winter skin. With a formula also including aloe, evening primrose, and argan oil it soothes and restores moisture. 


For extra hydration, the concentrated Quick Fix Correcting Balm works to soothe dry and chapped areas (like feet, knees, elbows, and cuticles) and to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. 

The concentrated balm is a blend of safflower, jojoba, argan, and olive oils with orange, rose geranium, and lemongrass oils for a fresh, citrusy scent. A little balm goes a long way and does need a few moments to fully absorb. I've loved using this on dry elbows and as an overnight cuticle treatment.

Overall, I'm really impressed with Acure! Their range of products offers something for pretty much something for everyone with their face, body, and hair care options. I love their focus on quality and affordability, meaning it's easy to update your entire routine if going natural is on your to do list. What do you think? Have you tried anything from Acure?
