Powerful Duo: Acure's Brightening Scrub + Argan Oil

acure argan

There's best-sellers that are hard to understand, and then there are two of Acure's biggest hits: Brightening Facial Scrub and Argan Oil.  Yet another family-owned vendor, Acure remains firm in their commitment to use sustainable and pure ingredients, despite the growth of their brand.  It's hard not to love them.

Maybe there's something about using a seaweed scrub when I live near the beach, but I can't get enough of this brightening scrub.  It's not too harsh to use a few times a week, and it really works as described: leaving your face with an extra-clean, dewy glow. Plus, Acure's exclusive "Chlorella Growth Factor" is amazing for regenerating skin cells.  After so much time in the sun and sea, that's a welcome addition.  It's bright sea-monster green, too, which makes it a lot more exciting to use.  You're never too old to be entertained by the simple things!

Then there is Argan Oil.  You've used it by now, right?  It's appearing in everything - and for good reason.  Harvested by women's cooperatives in Morocco, it's called "liquid gold" because of it's super-healing capabilities.  It's perfect for sensitive facial skin, dry spots on your body, hands and feet, and even dry hair.  Argan Oil is my must-have for travel: one little bottle does basically everything I need from removing makeup, to taming my hair, to hydrating my face.  It belongs in every green beauty toolkit. 

As always, I love providing customers at Wild Ginger Apothecary samples of any products they are interested in.  Just be prepared: once you bring either of these items home, you'll be hooked!

New blog, new favorite items! Meet Kensington Apothecary!

 I'm long overdue to create a Wild Ginger Apothecary blog, so better late than never!  Now to just catch up on the last 5 months of excitement...

There are hundreds of items I love in the store, with new and exciting products arriving weekly.  Yet there is one particular new line that deserves extra press: Kensington Apothecary.  At first I was simply excited to find a skincare product including my beloved Kombucha.  But there's so much more!  So many of my absolute favorite ingredients for food come through in a facial care line so complete I wonder how I lived without it.  Coconut, Blackcurrant, Pumpkin, Sake, and so many more.  (And 'booch.  Seriously, how perfect for Wild Ginger?)

 One big goal at Wild Ginger Apothecary is to have amazingly effective products that everyone can afford.  I have many skincare items that will blow your mind and not your wallet (and will give noticeable results, I promise).  This product line does the same, but has specific items available for 4 major skin type/lifestyle categories:  Blemish Prone, Graceful Aging, The Cocktail Circuit, and Surf/Ski/Sun.  You can mix-and-match any of the four steps: Cleanser, Tonic, Serum, and Facial Oil.  I like to get really crafty and mix my cocktail-recovery with my post-sun treatment.  Find what works for you, and you'll be hooked in no time too.   

At first I was sad I missed out on this amazing line during my indulgent 20's... but then I realized there's not a better place or time for antioxidant sun-damage support.  Welcome to Sarasota, Kensington.  We're so happy you're here.
