Look. Look at how pretty this is! Might as well sell my soul to all-natural, organic skincare brand Acure because their products speak to my deepest weakness – simple, bright packaging with clean lines. Swoon. I initially planned to review both the Cell Stimulating Facial Mask and the Brightening Facial Scrub in this post, but I got carried away and wrote a lot of words about just the scrub, so I’m going to talk just about that, and will review the Cell Stimulating Facial Mask soon.[/caption]
I’d been wanting the Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub for months after seeing it featured in Allure’s Best of 2015 list as the best facial scrub and finally, after being unable to find it stocked at Target ever for love or money, ordered it on Amazon. I trust Allure recommendations more than any other source in the world, simply because I’ve found so many of them to be so effective, and there’s a great blend of science and skincare knowledge in their recommendations, without an obsessive commitment to any one brand of skincare thought.
Whenever possible, I love to buy drugstore products, since so much of the beauty industry is a scam bent at separating us from our hard-earned bucks. I’ve gradually shifted more and more toward high-end skincare as I’ve come to prioritize that and explored that world more and more, but as far as makeup goes, there’s certain products there’s no need to ever spend more than $10-$15 on. Primers are one of these.
