Hi. I'm Sarah!

Welcome to Simple and Sustainable, the blog for all things green beauty!

A Look at the Green Beauty Brand Acure Organics

When my hometown finally got a Whole Foods, I had access to a lot of natural beauty products. This was the time I started to get into green beauty. I discovered all of these natural brands who wanted to give vegan and health conscious people a beauty alternative.

Acure Organics was one of the first brands I tried.  I was drawn to the brand because of the gorgeous packaging, clean ingredients, and affordable price tag.

They're a family owned and operated company, which just makes me feel better about buying their products. I have used a range of their products, from their hair care to skin care. Today I want to share some of my favourites from this wonderful company.

Volume Conditioner //

I have short hair that is pretty fine, so I need all of the volume I can get. This conditioner has really helped add some thickness and volume to my hair. So much so that even my stylist noticed a difference. I love the smell, the ingredients are totally clean, and for those of you who dye your hair, it's colour safe!

Dry Shampoo //

This is one of my every day essentials. It's the only dry shampoo I've used that actually works. Most of them just made my hair feel even worse. This one makes my hair look amazing, it adds volume, and lets me go longer between washes.

Cell Stimulating Facial Mask //

I received this in an Instagram give away, and I'm not sure if I would've picked it up otherwise. It just doesn't really advertise that it does much to your skin.

But in reality, it's wonderful. I adore the green colour and natural, earthy scent. I love the convenience of the tube packaging. But most importantly, it's wonderful because the seaweed and argan oil help to soothe and hydrate my skin. I can't get enough of this!

Brightening Facial Scrub //

I received this in the give away as well, and while it is too harsh for my skin, I have been using it as a lip and hand scrub. I think it works wonderfully because lip scrubs are generally expensive and come in minuscule jars. This is great for removing dead skin and it helps to brighten my lips and hands.

Facial Cleansing Creme //

I have dry and sensitive skin. So finding cleansers can be a bit difficult, especially in the Winter. But this one is perfect. My face doesn't feel tight or dry after use. It smells amazing. And the thick, creamy texture pairs beautifully with the natural, earthy scent.

The aloe vera helps to calm redness, while the mixture of oils removes makeup and hydrates my skin. This has quickly become my go to cleanser.

Unscented Argan Cleansing Towelettes//

I don't recommend using facial wipes every day. They're just not going to completely remove your makeup and cleanse your skin. But they're great for touch ups, refreshing your skin, and removing some makeup before the gym.

I love these ones, they work well without pulling at my skin. The olive and argan oils hydrate my skin instead of drying it out. They're also unscented which is perfect for my sensitive skin!

Certified Organic Facial Toner //

I love toners. They're refreshing and relaxing and I think they really help assist my skin in it's job. I adore this one, it's one of my all time favourites. It smells amazing, it's very refreshing and it really works to balance my skin.

100% Certified Organic Argan Oil //

This is such a beautiful product, I almost can't even. It's the only argan oil I've tried so I'm not sure how it compares to others. But I don't really want to try any others, because this one is just so good. A few pumps at night and this works to hydrate, nourish, and repair my skin. It helps with acne scars, wrinkles, and blemishes. You can even add it to scrubs, masks, you name it!

Have you tried any of the Acure Organics products? What did you think?

Until next time,

Sarah
