Acure Brightening Facial Scrub

We try to look on the bright side—especially when it comes to our complexion. After all, dull skin and clogged pores are only temporary, thanks to this scrub from Acure Organics. It gently exfoliates and removes dirt and oil, plus stimulates new cell growth for fresh, radiant-looking skin. The formula is loaded with argan stem cells and chlorella growth factor, or CGF, which nudges skin to produce new cells and make complexion more radiant. Pretty soon, we're looking as sunny as we feel.

I got this in my first or second birch box and have been using it 3x per week for about 6 or 7 months now. This is the type of product where you can instantly feel a difference in your skin. It makes it so soft! Normally with face washes and scrubs, as long as it doesn't make my skin WORSE, I consider it good. But this one actually makes it BETTER! I have very sensitive skin so I'm grateful for something that doesn't irritate it. Bonus, it's nice to get compliments on your complexion!

Smooth skin in minutes!
Purchased

This stuff is great! Just make sure you use it in the shower. As a previous reviewer commented, it's like sand when you wash it off. I have combo skin and this is a great product - removes oil or dry skin where you need ti, but isn't too drying elsewhere. My Vitamin C serum and moisturizer glided on and absorbed immediately after I used this scrub. I think I have a new favorite...

Shower must have

i love Acure products. One of my favorites being the Brightening facial scrub. I prefer to use mine in the shower 3 times a week. The scrub isnt messy, however i like to REALLY work this onto my whole face in all directions and the shower makes the rinsing simple. The color at first was questionable since it is so dark, but after the first use i was hooked. *tip* i will apply a mask, like rose or dead sea mud and then once it dries i get in the shower and pat it wet (not removing) then apply this scrub all over, mixing with the mask and it does wonders for my skin. not to over exfoliate so you use it gently but i prefer to do a double.

Similar to Lush Herbalism!
Sampled

This is similar to Lush Herbalism, in texture. However, I feel this did a better job at exfoliating dead skin and removing any remaining makeup.

The smell is natural and strong, but you get used to it. I actually prefer this over something fragrant since fragrance can cause more clogged pores.

For the price, and results, this is well worth a try!

Great even with sensitive skin
Sampled

I have super dry flaky skin which needs to be exfoliated just about every other day. My skin is also very sensitive. I thought this would be too rough for my baby skin but it works great and doesn’t bother me! Definitely a new product I’ll be purchasing again

This stuff is awesome!
Purchased

I have very sensitive skin and have never been able to find something that exfoliates well, but doesn't damage my skin. This brightens my skin, get's rid of my flaky patches and doesn't irritate my skin at all. I love it!

They changed the formula
Sampled

I used to love this scrub-- the exfoliating elements were much smaller and left a much more satisfying final feel to the skin. Now it's like scrubbing with pebbles.

Not Great, Bad Smell
Purchased

I've seen others comment on the bad smell of this, but I usually don't mind or even enjoy how natural product smell, not this time. It really smells like algae and sort of 'fishy'. It is very deep green so it gets the shower messy. The scrub is very rough for a facial product. I will probably use it up as a body scrub. Overall I didn't like it, won't purchase again.

Used to be a big fan...
Purchased

I used to love this product. I would use it 2-3 times a week as an exfoliant and it worked great for my skin. But recently they changed the formula so it isn’t as effective as an exfoliant and it’s more of just a face wash. Also I’m not sure what it is about the new formula but it clogged near the opening and now I can’t get the remaining 3/4 of the product out. Not a fan of the new formula wish they went back to the old stuff!

I don’t use facial scrubs so I wasn’t a fan of this product.
