Make Your Skin and the World a Better Place with ACURE Organics [Review & Giveaway]

Did you  know, October is Fair Trade Awareness Month?

We looked high and low this month for companies that hold themselves to a higher standard of business practice by participating in Fair Trade Certification

One of the amazing companies I found was ACURE Organics - a skincare company that uses only Fair Trade ingredients in their products.

We've been talking about Fair Trade here at McKinney Mommas all month long, but just in case you're new to the game....

What is Fair Trade?

"Fair Trade Certification empowers farmers and farm workers to lift themselves out of poverty by investing in their farms and communities, protecting the environment, and developing the business skills necessary to compete in the global marketplace." - excerpt from

If you had the choice, wouldn't you pick products whose ingredients come from Fair Trade practices?

You can!

I had recently run out of my facial moisturizer, so ACURE Organics sent me a sample of their Radical Resurfacing Facial lotion: lemon probiotic + 1% chlorella growth factor to try.

This moisturizer is for all skin types, and is created to even skin tone and guard against photodamage.  

No, not the kind that you get from having a shutter-happy mother-in-law!  Photoaging is skin damage (wrinkles, age/liver spots) that's a result of exposure to UV Rays, silly.  

I LOVE the incredible scent of this moisturizer, and with no synthetic fragrance, my skin is happy as well as my nose! I haven't noticed any breakouts and actually feel like my skin could be getting smoother and more evenly toned.  

I do have that nasty hyperpigmentation or "pregnancy mask" as a result of carrying my dear daughter for 9 months (mostly during the summer) this year.  So, I'm hoping that the brightening nature of the lemon probiotic in this Radical Resurfacing Lotion will kick in soon.
