- Customer Service: I spoke to Kelly B., who was really great and answered all of my questions ASAP! What I like the most about the company is that (unlike so many “Pinkwashing” companies out there) they DO NOT use any suspected carcinogens in their products! Finally, a company who “Get’s It”! All of Acure’s products contain at least a minimum of 70% organic ingredients and many of their products are completely USDA Certified Organic, Fair Trade Certified or both! They are also Vegan, Gluten Free, Sulfate Free, Cruelty Free, Paraben Free, PEG Free, Petroleum Free, Phthalate Free, Silicone Free, contains no Mineral Oil or Synthetic Fragrances which is AWESOME! Please see my Review of their Facial Cleansing Gel Superfruit + Chlorella Growth Factor for more info.
- Sample, Trial, Travel Sizes?: Nope, but I wish they did!
- EWG’s Skin Deep – Cosmetic Safety Database Rating: 2.
- Verdict: I don’t know any other way to explain it other than… you know when you constantly walk by the mirror- and check yourself out (c’mon… you know you’ve done it)?… Just to double-check that it’s not all in your head, and that your skin really does look as amazing as you think it does? Well, that’s what I feel like after using this just after one week! I will continue to update if anything changes, but at the moment- I totally LOVE this! It is really soooooo smooth and feels so nice and hydrating! I put it on before I go to sleep (Zzzzzz…) and wake up looking like Sleeping Beauty (as if I just slept for 100 years)! Recently, I’ve started to notice little, teeny-tiny crow’s tootsies around my eyes (I’m 32)… looks like some body’s Party-Girl days are catching up…YIKES! I really like that I can see, and even more- that I can feel a difference in my skin.! No breakouts so far- plus the moisture without the greasiness is insane… awesome quality… I’m totally SOLD! I have to admit- there are two things I’m not so crazy about: 1. is the price- but I think this will last me a long time since you don’t need a lot, and 2. the fact that the ingredients are not listed on the actual bottle (but they are listed on the box it comes in). My problem is that I am not one to save things I don’t need. I know the bottle is really small, and there isn’t much room on the label, but I think this is important… so after I toss the box it came in, I still have all the info I need about the product, like the ingredients! I would definitely buy this product again. Thanks Kelly B. & Acure Organics for another great product… I’m really looking forward to your Hair Products!
