Acure Organics Day Cream - Review

Acure Organics Day Cream, $18.99
Hello, beauties! When it comes to skincare, finding the right regimen can be a never ending experience. With so many products to choose from, each for varying types of skin, each treating a plethora of different issues, stepping down the skincare aisle can feel downright exhausting. So it's always a lucky find when you come across a product that can pull double duty and pare your routine to the essentials. Today, we'll be looking at a moisturizer that ticks all the right boxes making it a surefire hit on your bathroom counter!

The Acure Organics Day Cream is a lightweight moisturizer chock full of skin renewing goodies like acai berry, argan oil, aloe vera, and vitamin e. It's also vegan and free of harmful chemicals which means it's good for your skin, as well as the earth. But the real stars of this cream are the gotu kola stem cells, which firm and tone the skin, and help protect you from free radicals and other daily elements, and the 1% chlorella growth factor which supports collagen and elastin fibers, a must for knocking back signs of aging. It also has a light, pleasant, citrus scent sure to invigorate the senses every time you apply it.

I received the Acure Organics Day Cream in one of my Birchboxes last year, and from the first trial I knew I'd found something special. I have combination skin, so I need something that will moisturize my dry patches without causing my oilier bits to overact. This cream was lightweight enough to apply all over my face without upsetting my oily areas, but was buildable to fully nourish any dryness. While I do use it during the day, I've found it works best as a night cream for me as my skin tends to over-oil while I sleep. It also sinks right in, and my skin looks more vibrant and awake when wearing this, which is also a tick in the plus column!

If you're looking for a moisturizer that nourishes and renews, and is great for both day and night if you have tricky skin, I'd definitely recommend giving this cream a look. I've seen Acure Organics popping up in Target recently, so it should be fairly easy to find if you don't want to wait for online shipping. I'd call this a win!

Have you tried the Acure Organics Day Cream? What is your go to moisturizer for combination skin?

Stay gorgeous, peaches!

LUSH Cosmetics Soap | Mangnificent - Review

LUSH Cosmetics Soap | Mangnificent, $6.95
Hello, beauties! Now that the holidays are well and truly behind us, many of us are starting to look forward to the warmer months. We long for sunny days, fruity drinks, and all the things that make us feel alive and refreshed after too many dreary winter weeks. However, you don't have to wait until summer to work some revitalizing bits into your routine. Today's bath offering will have you energized in no time!

LUSH Cosmetics' Mangnificent soap is a citrusy blend of fresh pureed mango, lemon oil, and sicilian mandarin oil, sure to awaken your mind and body with every wash. One whiff will have you dreaming of cocktails by the pool, gentle summer breezes blowing through your hair. With lemon oil as a natural astringent and fresh mango to tone, you'll have your skin whipped into top warm weather form long before you ever need break out your tanks and tees.

Mangnificent always leaves my skin feeling fresh and squeaky clean. And like most other LUSH products, it's gentle enough for my sensitive outer layer. As this soap isn't very moisturizing, I'd definitely recommend Mangnificent for those with oilier skin, else you'll need to use a good body lotion after your bath. As for the scent, I'm not typically a citrus person, but this soap smells good enough to eat. And the fragrance is neutral enough that even my husband gives this a go when he hops in the shower. It's one of the few products we share!

If you are into citrusy scents, and you love your products to be natural and free of naughty chemicals (this one is vegan), then I'd definitely recommend giving LUSH's Mangnificent soap a go. Tropical paradise, party of you!

Have you tried LUSH's Mangnificent soap? What are your favorite energizing bathtime products?

Stay gorgeous, peaches!
