Honest reviews


Not for me..

I’ve been using this product faithfully 2-3 times a week. I have normal/combination skin. For whatever reason, this product has not brighten, tone or clean my face. It was breaking me out with whiteheads. I was so hoping it work, but it did not. I’ll just pass it on to my sister who has very sensitive skin. I do love the color of it..its green and gritty.

Fabulous Dark Green Wonder!

Thumbs up to ACURE on this Facial Scrub! So far this is my favorite product of theirs. The scrubby bits are mostly from Lemon Peel Granules and on account of the Chlorophyll, French Clay and Sea Kelp it is a cool looking rich green color filled with other great skin nurturing ingredients.Ingredient List = Organic Acai Berry, Organic Blackberry, Organic Rosehips, Organic Pomegranate, Organic Rooibos, organic Calendula, Organic Chamomile, Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Vegetable Glycerin, French Green Clay, Organic Lemon Peel Granules, Saponifed Organic Coconut Oil, Vegetable Cellulose Gum, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Sea Kelp, Cocoa Powder, Organic Chlorella Growth Factor, Chlorophyll, Fermented Sugar, Carageenan, Argan Stem Cells, Organic Argan Oil, Potassium Sorbate, Salvia officinals (Sage) Essential Oil, Mentha spicata (Spearmint) Essential Oil.They are generous with the Lemon Granules which are small and rounded so they are not jagged or too scratchy but still effective so that with just a small amount you can give your skin a really good polish without irritating it. It does not smell like a “seaweed” based product. The aroma is a minty herbal one due to the Spearmint and Sage Essential oils in it. I really like it but if you have a thing against herbal scents then I suggest passing on this one.Your skin feels smooth and clean after and with the 4 ounces of product it should also last you a pretty good while especially if you are just using it 3 days a week as recommended.

wonderful product!

I have tried quite a few facial scrubs and either they would make me break out, or be too harsh and leave my face red and blotchy. Not this product. It leaves your face nice and smooth, nor red and irritated AND it has not caused any break outs for me. I have tried other products from this line and have been very happy with everything.

Skin feels great

I saw this product at whole foods. They were out, but I was able to get a sample. I used it for a few weeks and my skin is brighter and smoother. I saw it on amazon and purchased it. The ingredients are wonderful and all natural. Love it!

This product is both gentle and effective. Both my husband and I use it twice weekly. You will notice the smoothening of your face and decollette.

Cleanses and smoothes

It is a wonderful exfoliant, I like that it isn’t harsh but cleans deep, I love Acure products not only are they good for the earth but they are great for your skin.

LOVE this product – great natural scrub!

Acure makes great products, I discovered them somewhat by accident. This scrub is a dark black, green in color and feels very natural and mud/sand-like. I really love it, it make my face feel really clean and it smells good and feels like it doesn’t have anything artificial in it. I don’t think its good for daily use but I use it a few times a week and love it. I am not sure if it improved my skin a great deal but it feels great. The texture is really fine so it feels pretty gentle, unlike some of the apricot exfoliants that I have used.

One of the best scrubs…

…I’ve ever tried, and I’ve tried many. It’s got enough grit to it so you feel like you are polishing your face. But its still gentle enough to keep you from going overboard. I like that it has clay in it, giving it the green color. Smells sort of like cloves to me. The tube lasted me quite a while.

Great exfoliant but not for sensitive skin

The product claims that it can be used for "all skin types" but, sensitive skin user beware! It is quite the rough exfoliant. I would say that it is tougher than St. Ives with twice as many little exfoliating beads. I like to use this on my feet and my well worn legs and arms/elbows. My senstitive face was hurting after this one, even with a test of gentle lathering.

So far so good

Only been using for less than a week but I use it every morning. I have VERY dry skin and some acne so I use my acne medication at night and then the scrub in the morning. Then I use a little moisturizer with one drop of Aragon oil and let it sit a couple of minutes before doing my make up. So far the scrub has made a big difference.

Carmen Cordova, TN


I love this scrub….little bit goes a long way. I use it on my face , neck and my hands . My skin improved dramatically.I definitely recommend it.

Ila Enola, AR

My face has never looked better!

I just tried this product for the first time today and I LOVE it. It felt really good going on (tiny bit of tingle, but not too much) and I could feel it exfoliating without being overly harsh. I followed up with my normal Clinique facial cleanser. I was so impressed when I got out of the shower and saw how smooth and bright my skin looked. I will definitely be checking out other Acure Organics products.

I like this

Now I know this is marketed to women but this is the best face scrub I’ve found as a preshave wash. It leaves your skin very smooth and makes shaving with a DE razor a bit easier. It actually has more grit than many of the scrubs that are for men. Also its free trade and 100 percent natural. I’ll definately be buying again.

Winnie Whiting, KS

Great stuff

I’ve got very oily, acne prone, large-pored skin that is also sensitive and I’m very picky about exfoliating products. I’ve tried dozens of scrubs and only repurchased one, which is now discontinued. I finally decided to purchase this Acure scrub and I’m so glad I did! Not only is it an effective exfoliator, it works amazingly well at cutting down oiliness and I feel like I’ve just used a clay mask after using it. My skin looks much brighter and more even. I was worried I would be allergic to this since I have been allergic to so many organic skincare products with lots of plant ingredients in the past but I’m happy to report this didn’t irritate my skin at all. Will definitely repurchase!

Best facial scrub!

I was really excited to try this facial scrub out. I read the reviews on it and everybody loved it. In the past, I have used harsh, non organic facial scrubs which I felt just irritated my skin in the long run. So, I was a bit skeptical when I read that this had a very fine texture that still exfoliated the skin. The packaging on all Acure products is great- the bottles all have neat designs on them and it seems to compliment the product. At first, this product scared me. It’s a mossy-green color and is thick when it comes out of the bottle. When you rub this product into wet hands however, it turns into a light green color. I gently rub this into my face when it’s wet for about 30 seconds. I was pleased to find out the particles in this facial scrub are indeed very fine and did not irritate my skin in the long run. I massage this over my neck and upper chest as well and those areas have not been irritated. After I massage this into my skin, and I feel that I have cleaned out my pores, I wash it off. It does not leave any sort of residue on your skin and you are left feeling clean and clogged poor free. I use this facial scrub 3-4 times a week and have seen a significant reduction in the amount of blackheads on my nose. The texture of my skin is also more smooth, even compared to other facial scrubs I have used in the past. I would definitely recommend buying this facial scrub if you are looking for a skin transformation. As with with other Acure products, you will not be disappointed by this product.

Love at first wash!

I love, love, love this face scrub! It’s gentle, yet effective. My skin feels soft and refreshed after using it, and I really like the uplifting lemony scent.

Best Acure product, and possibly my all-time favorite

This is my fifth Acure product, and I can only echo the positives in the other reviews. I find the smell just a bit "funky", but I LIKE that. It borders on a Chinese herb smell to me (the herbal ones, not the bitter ones), and I love the exotic-ness of it. As for the function of the product: A+. The value for its price: A+. The product is aptly named: "brightening facial scrub".I have 40+ mildly sun-damaged skin with mild-moderate rosacea. I’m not supposed to use any scrub b/c of the rosacea, but my skins loves this product. You must must must use a gentle touch, and have patience (barely flop your fingers in light circular motion for 1-2 minutes) and not scrub roughly in a hurry. I can hardly believe it when I come out of the shower with less red in my face, and my skin is sooooo soft.

I enjoy using it. My face feels more vibrant after using

I really enjoy using Acure products. I love that they are chemical free with mostly organic ingredients.Now for the scrub, I am equally as satisfied. I have sensitive skin so I am always weiry of trying exfoliating products out of fear my skin will break out or get a "burned" feeling. This product has not caused any of those problems. In fact, it leaves my skin feeling fresh, soft, clean, vibrant, and even moisturized (it has some oils in it). It feels as though the old dry skin is removed. I then follow up with the radical resurfacing cream, then either the day cream or the night cream.For those interested: it is green, is grainy/sandy feeling, slightly oily, and smells like seaweed. They recommend using up to three times per week.

Perfect Texture

I love this stuff… i’d been looking for something that wasn’t greasy & that had the right grainy consistency for a face scrub, and this is definitely it.most other scrubs are too fine or too ‘goopy’ and don’t have enough ‘scrub’ to do any good… this certainly has enoughif you have sensitive skin (i definitely don’t) i would not recommend this – i guess it can be a bit abrasive? but if you apply it GENTLY, it should be just fine. this scrub is great and doesn’t aggravate my acne, i will be repurchasing.

Alicia Edgerton, WI

Great face scrub

I love this face scrub. No harmful chemicals. Works great at scrubbing the dead skin off of my face. I highly recommend this brand!

Janell Alto, GA

Love this facial scrub – softens but doesn’t dry you out

After using this 3-4 times a week, I really like it. isn’t really harsh on your skin when you are scrubbing, smells nice, leaves your skin nice and soft and smooth. Bonus is that it doesn’t dry my skin out or make it flaky. Totally recommend.

Elda Claymont, DE

My skin glows after using this

This scrub really cleans out my pores and exfoliates my skin. It also cleanses well and smells good. It has the consistency of finely ground sand and scrubs nicely.
