The LUSH 12 Days of Christmas is back again and…
In an effort to use more sustainable and eco-friendly products, I recently tried out a few things from Acure Organics. This family-owned company was founded on principles of sustainability and the search for non-toxic plant-based ingredients.
(And luckily it’s available on one of my favourite online shops, iHerb!)
The first two products I tried were the Calming Body Lotion (trial size) and Quick Fix Correcting Balm. These helped me through a brutal month of travel from warm to cold climates and back again.
The Calming Body Lotion is a non-greasy moisturizer that smells amazing (and is very calming). It adds a beautiful hydrated glow to the skin and was perfect for when I was dealing with hopping on and off airplanes. This is free of all the bad stuff, like parabens, gluten and silicone. And there are so many antioxidants in here, your skin will love you.
Ingredients include: Organic acai, blackerry, rosehips, pomegranate, calendula, mango, lotus, aloe vera, cocoa seed butter, lavender, olive oil.
Now the Quick Fix Correcting Balm is described as a multi-use balm that can be used on frown lines, wrinkles, lips etc. I would disagree with that and keep this to strictly rough skin patches like elbows, heels and maybe cuticles. It is very greasy and doesn’t sink into the skin very fast, but it does heal up those heels real quick. Like the body lotion, it is free of nasty chemicals and bad stuff and is made with organic, good for your ingredients.
Ingredients include: Organic safflower seed oil, jojoba oil, beeswax, argan oil, orange oil, rose geranium.
And the best of the three products I tried, Aromatherapeutic Rose Moroccan Argan Oil. Now this, you put on everything. It smells amazing, a nice rose floral but nothing migraine-triggering, and it’s incredible rich in fatty acids, vitamin E and proteins. I use this to de-frizz my hair, soften up my elbows and even all over after I get out of the bath.
Ingredients include: Argan oil, orange oil, rose geranium flower oil, rose oil.
