Honest reviews


If you have oily skin, I’d steer clear.

I wanted to love this moisturizer, especially for being natural (and expensive), but I have oily skin and this makes my face extremely oily, it’s impossible for me to use it, just gets disgusting….it ended up in my nail polish box, I just use it for my cuticles since I can’t find another use for it… 🙁

A Worthwhile Treatment Product

This is a Serum Treatment product that is recommended for any skin type that is in need of diminishing imperfections of either fine lines or scars. It is designed to apply the antioxidant rich cream to any trouble spots of wrinkles, scars and red or dry patches on the face and neck.When I saw that it was actually more like a lotion I was wondering if they really should have called it a serum. Serums are very lightweight treatment products with a small molecular structure that allows them to penetrate the skin barriers quickly and effectively – because of the lightweight and ease of absorbtion they often work faster then a regular face cream and are designed to be worn under other moisturizers and makup. Despite the look of just another lotion in a bottle it did go on smoothly and soaked in rapidly. It wears well under makeup and other moisturizers. I have used a good amount of the bottle now, making sure to apply every day. Sometimes I even use in the morning and night but only if I am not going anywhere highly social as the orange, lavender and rosemary oils (although a pleasant scent to me) have evoked comments from my friends that I smelled “herbal” or “like lemongrass” after I hugged them.It is hard to say if it has been a strong effective treatment for scar tissue, etc. But what I do notice is that it has worked well to tone and soften up the skin right after a good cleanse and also seems to help soothe any redness. Once I have cleansed and/or exfoliated and then followed up with a spray toner, I will apply a pump or two all over the face (not spot treated like suggested) and allow about 30 seconds to soak in. For those with oily skin this may be a perfect moisturizer alone but it is very lightweight so most will need to apply some sort of day moisturizer in the morning still as it is not designed for intense hydration. Or if used at night, apply just under a night cream or light weight moisture mask or treatment oil. It works great at night under the ACURE Seriously Firming Serum (which is actually a good treatment oil as opposed to a serum but the two pair great together).Ingredients = Organic High-oleic Safflower Oil, Organic Sesame Seed Oil, Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil, Organic Borage Oil, Organic Argan Oil, Organic Sweet Orange oil, Organic Cranberry Seed Oil, Organic Bulgarian Lavender Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Rosemary Oil

I wish it worked for me

Normally, I love their products. My skin tone did get better but it did make me break out- I will try to return it:(

I like it

It’s smooth and it’s light which is always good for the skin so it won’t clog the pores. The only thing is that it smells a little funky but it’s bearable which is acceptable.

Great hydrating lotion!

I received this lotion to review and was really excited to try it out. I previously have been using the Acure Day Cream to moisturize my dry skin (I live in a cold weather region) and had recently been experiencing drier-than-normal skin. I began using this moisturizing lotion as the season began warming up and felt that my skin was becoming a little oily for my liking. This lotion smells really nice- just like lemons (which I don’t usually like) but this is a very pleasant lemon smell. It soaks into my skin very nicely- it does not leave a greasy film on my skin but instead leaves me feeling moisturized and glowing. It is absorbed into my skin pretty quickly after I apply it so I do not have to wait a very long time to put my makeup on. I anticipate I will use this product in the warmer summer months (as it is fairly light) and the day cream in the cooler winter months when my skin becomes more dry, dull and flaky. If you are looking for a great lightweight moisturizer that is both healthy for your skin and the environment, this should be your go-to product. And, the price is extremely reasonable for such an effective, safe product. I am excited to try other products put out by Acure. I have loved everything that I’ve tried so far.

Eh. Nothing Dramatic

It didn’t harm anything – eg, I didn’t break out or get a rash, but it just didn’t do anything either. I was looking for a clean alternative to my Olay Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir, but sadly this is not it. Too bad, as I love much of the rest of the Acure line, especially their shampoos and their body lotions.
