Acure has become one of my favorite toxic-free brands in the recent years. Its budget friendly, available at my local stores, and their products WORK! Their product line contains skin care, body care, baby care, and hair care. I love that there’s a variety of products to choose from such as shampoos, conditioners, face moisturizers with powerful anti-oxidants, body washes, shaving gels, etc.
Firming Body Lotion: ($10) I’ve been using this product as a daily body moisturizer for over a year now and can definitely see a difference in the tightness of my skin. You won’t see results in the first month, but after continued use, there should be some progress with firming and replenishment in moisture. The lotion contains powerful ingredients such as evening primrose, and rosehip oils to firm up; cocoa butter to add moisture and elasticity to the skin; aloe vera and coconut oil to soothe any irritations; CoQ10 for cell growth and repair of damaged skin.

Argan Stem Cell + CoQ10 Dry Shampoo: ($10) This is probably my favorite product in the entire line! I have fine, past shoulder length hair and wash my hair every other day. On the off days, I must use dry shampoo; otherwise, my hair will be a bit dirty looking on the roots. I have tried countless dry shampoos and most are very sticky, leave a prominent white residue, or too perfumey. This dry shampoo keeps my hair clean, fresh and voluminous all day without touching up. Simple and clean ingredients.
Ingredients: Organic Corn Starch (non GMO), French White Clay (Kaolin), Oat Flour, Slippery Elm Bark Flour, Argania spinosa (Argan) Stem Cells,Ubiquinone (CoQ10), Lavender essential oil, chamomile essential oil
Argan Oil + Argan Stem Cell Leave-in Conditioner: ($10) This is a very lightweight leave-in conditioner that untangles damp hair very well and doesn’t leave a film or any residue. It provides hair with shine and hydration, due to argan oil and protects against any heat appliances. The scent is very herbal (rosemary + other herbs), which I don’t mind because it doesn’t linger. This is one of those basic hair products that no woman or man should be without.

Argan Cleansing Towelettes (Unscented): ($7) Finding natural face cleaning towelettes that completely remove all traces of makeup is a bit of a challenge. I was using the Alba Botanica towelettes before switching to Acure. The Alba Botanica has some ingredients that aren’t as clean such as, SLS, sodium benzoate, and benzoic acid. All of those are linked to being carcinogens. The scent (Alba Botanica) is also very botanical/ perfumey. Acure is completely unscented for those with fragrance sensitivities. It removes all makeup, including eye makeup really well and doesn’t clog my pores or leave my skin irritated, or dry.
