I am always on the hunt for effective and affordable skin care. I’ve tried everything from drug store brands like Neutrogena, Clean and Clear to higher end skin care lines like Boscia at Sephora (one of my favorites) and even ProActiv. Currently I am using Acure, a family owned and operated company that is also vegan, organic, paraben-free, cruelty-free and fair trade. So basically, you can feel really good about this purchase in addition to the amazing things it will do for maintenance of your skin.
I made my own “set” and am currently using the Facial Scrub, Cleansing Gel, Toner and Night Cream.
The “Argan Stem Cell + Chlorella Growth Factor Brightening Facial Scrub” is made with organic sea kelp. The scrub has a pretty gritty texture, but is helpful in removing the impurities from the skin and unclogging pores. With any scrub I use, I am always very gentle with my skin. No matter the skin type I always believe in being good to your skin and not aggressively over exfoliating it. You never know if you could be creating smalls tears in the skin. You only need to use a dime sized amount of this scrub three times a week. Your face will feel very clean and smooth after.

I had the hardest time deciding what type of cleanser to try. Acure carries three different types of cleansers: the “Facial Cleansing Creme Argan Oil and Mint”, Sensitive Facial Cleanser Argan Oil and Probiotic and the one I got “Facial Cleanser Gel Superfruit + Chlorella Growth Factor.” They all sounded enticing, but I chose to go with the gel because of the reviews I read on it’s ability to remove make up. The cleanser is very gentle and fragrance-free. Next time I’ll give the creme cleanser a try.
After cleansing my face, I spray with toner. I use the toner both in the morning before applying make up and also at night. Toner helps to balance the skin out and another protective layer I like to put on my face before masking it with moisturizer. I like this toner because it feels refreshing and soothing after washing my face.
Lastly, I use the “Night Creme: Argan Stem Cell + 2% Chlorella Growth Factor.” I love the consistency of the Acure night cream. It’s thicker than night lotions I’ve tried in the past, but it is extremely moisturizing. I can feel my skin soaking it up after all of the washing and it also has a very nice smell. The organic ingredients in this lotion are both hydrating and age-fighting.
