Acure’s Brilliantly Brightening Facial Scrub is not what you’d typically expect from a scrub. It’s free of nasties like parabens and phthalates and instead is full of nutrient-dense ingredients that “feed” the skin the nutrients it craves.
The brightening effect is slow but steady and it is gentle enough to use without creating extensive redness or irritation.
Physical vs. Chemical Exfoliation
In recent years chemical exfoliants have gained popularity over their physical counterparts. Popular exfoliants range from the harsh glycolic peels at a dermatologist’s office to the natural fruit enzyme peels found on health store shelves—whose naturalness does not exclude them from being potentially damaging.
But instead of merely managing the damage, why not find a better way? Gentle scrubs are back, and Acure is once again proving to be a leader in affordable and usable beauty products.

The ingredients serve a variety of purposes. French green clay, walnut shell powder, and organic lemon peel granules deep-clean pores while the kelp aids in exfoliation.
Meanwhile, a variety of nutritious ingredients (aloe, rosehips, chlorella extract, argan culture extract) replenish the skin.
Who It’s For
It is suitable for most, except perhaps extremely sensitive or dry skin types. As with any exfoliating product, use gently and only when needed.
