beauty scoop | acure organics brightening facial scrub

When one of my coworkers asked me for a facial scrub recommendation, I couldn’t help but describe Acure Organics’ Brightening Facial Scrub as one of my favorites that makes you look like a “green sea monster” during use.

And I meant that in the cutest, most attractive green-sea-monster-kind-of-way.

{Acure Organics sent me a sample of its Brightening Facial Scrub for review. It costs $14.99 for a 4-ounce plastic tube.}

Deep green in color straight out of the tube, Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub transforms into a punchy mint green speckled with scrubbers when mixed with water, creating a slight foaming action that allows the scrub to slip across the skin nicely.

The amount I’ve shown in the pictures in this post is probably twice as much as you need to cover your face.

However, I do like to exfoliate my chest and upper arms, especially in warmer weather, as I can be a bit breakout-prone in those areas, too. If you choose to do that as well, the Hershey’s kiss-size dollop is plenty!

While I think Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub is gentle enough to use every day, I prefer to keep my exfoliation to 2-3 times a week based on my skin’s needs.

If I feel dull or am flaky, I would have no problem using this gentle exfoliating scrub 4-5 times a week.

The sea kelp scrubbers aren’t overwhelmingly big or abrasive, yet you do feel them working each time you massage the product into your damp skin.

Let’s take a look at what’s inside Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub:

acure organics brightening facial scrub ingredients

You can pretty much always count on Acure Organics to pack the best, most beneficial, organic, fair trade ingredients into its affordable products, and the Brightening Facial Scrub is no different.

The Curoxidant™ Blend alone is enough to inspire gasps of delight (acai! blackberry! rosehips! pomegranate! rooibos!), and that’s just the beginning of the ingredients list.

French green clay helps unplug pores while zesty lemon peels brightens and tones. Chamomile calms as coconut oil, olive oil and argan oil moisturize, and Acure’s signature chlorella growth factor stimulates new cell growth to reveal more radiant, beautiful skin.

Can you see why Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub is a staple in my shower?

That also means it’s a repurchase for me. Easily.Besides, I never pass up an opportunity to look like a green sea monster!

    Nice review! I have 6 Acure products and have yet to try their scrub! I love this brand! x

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      Which products *have* you tried?

    The ingredients sound amazing in this! I really do need to try this brand! x

  • Hime .Yume

    Never tried this brand but I hear it’s very good =) Gotta try it someday! I love their packagings…

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      Me too! Pretty yet not over the top. Hope you get to try it soon!

    I’m definitely intrigued! I’ve only used Acure’s lotion/shampoo but I could definitely add another facial scrub to my arsenal! Totally unrelated – do you have a fave natural mascara? I’m trying to convert but haven’t found one that I like… would love your thoughts!

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      I have a post in the works about natural mascara, but the short answer is no. :( It’s been really hard because I have short, stick-straight eyelashes that point down AND I’m oily, so most natural mascaras smudge / flake / don’t offer any va va voom.

      The ones that I *do* like aren’t 100% clean: Tarte, BareMinerals, Perfekt. Perfekt is probably the cleanest of the three.

      You are the second person to ask me this today! Good thing I’m working on that post! :) xoxo

      LMK if you try this scrub. It’s a cheap thrill! Acure makes good stuff :)

    This reminds me of the Pangea Japanese Matcha Tea with Acai & Goji Berry Mask! I think using these two together would be amazing!

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      Oh yeah, I’ve tried that mask before, too! Fun color and texture. I need to go get some more of that and try the mix :)

    I actually just started using this product about three weeks ago and I am really enjoying it! It gives a great exfoliation without irritating my skin. I also really like the color of it :) It makes me happy!

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      Yes, that green color is so fun! Glad you are liking it. I’m about ready to restock mine :)

    That exfoliator just looks freaking exciting! I personally have fallen in love with the Bella Pelle chiara polish/super powdered scrub, and use it about every other day or every 2 days on my skin. It smells so awesome and fresh and works wonders.
    I’m really diggin’ the ingredients (and color ;)) of this particular facial scrub though :)

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      I have never heard of Bella Pelle — adding it to my list! This scrub is a staple. I love Acure Organics … affordable and top quality. What a hit! :)

      • http://wehavethisnow.wordpress.com Jade Smith

        And I’d never heard of Acure Organics! Always on the search for fabulous natural products. Yes I discovered Bella Pelle and the scrub I mentioned in Petit Vour (it’s a monthly beauty box with vegan, all natural products and it rocks!). Xo

        • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

          If you have Whole Foods in your city, it should carry Acure! I recently got my first Petit Vour box and was super impressed by it. Got to try a great shampoo / conditioner I’d been wondering about (Evolvh) and the Mun serum, which I just adored!

          • http://wehavethisnow.wordpress.com Jade Smith

            Ooooh awesome! Love having another reason to head to Whole Foods ;) And yeees, I just received my Petit Vour last night actually and really love this one! Each one has been incredible and so rewarding so far. Love this company. Enjoy!
