Acure Cocoa Butter + CoQ10 Ultra-Hydrating Unscented Body Lotion


I've never been someone who uses much body lotion, but I've gotten into more of a routine with it over the last couple months.  Straight out of the shower, I'll quickly apply lotion all over and it really does make a difference!  (Who knew?)  I never had problems not using lotion, but a little lotion every day or two has made my skin incredibly soft.  I'm totally hooked now!

Lately I've been using Acure's Cocoa Butter + CoQ10 Ultra-Hydrating Body Lotion, which is a fantastic all-purpose moisturizer.  It rubs in easily and absorbs quickly too, so your skin isn't left feeling tacky.  With this lotion, there's no 'drying time,' so I have no problems getting dressed immediately after using it.  I don't feel like it gives quite enough hydration for those extra dry spots, like heels and elbows, but for everywhere else, the Acure does a wonderful job.  

We don't have Acure products in Canada to "sniff test," so I played it safe with the unscented one.  It has no added ingredients for fragrance, but it does have a slight smell from the natural oils.  It's subtle and really only noticeable as you're applying the product, which is great if you're sensitive to scents or even if you're just looking for something that won't interfere with any other fragrances you may be wearing.  If unscented isn't your thing, the lotion is also available in three scents - mandarin, lemongrass and lavender.

I've been loving Acure's products recently and this one is no exception!  If you're looking for an effective and affordable body lotion with pure ingredients, I'd definitely recommend checking these out.

  2. I love love Acure lotion and have this in my room right now! You could stick with the unscented but none of them are overly fragranced, they're all pleasant and subtle. When I lived in the states I bought it all the time- I've heard they won't distribute in Canada though, c'mon Acure! Us natural gals north of the border need your awesome products!

    1. I know! I feel like their really isn't anything comparable to Acure on the market right now - in terms of price and ingredients - so I'm confident they'd do well in Canada too. Hopefully as they keep growing, they'll change their minds!

  3. I haven't tried Acure body lotions because I love my oils. But so many people are raving about the hydration for the price it gives, really eager to try either this one or the mandarin one.

    Do you happen to have tried their face scrub by Acure??

    1. I like body oils too, but I find I'm less consistent about using them regularly. I feel like this would be a great lotion at any price - the fact that it's so inexpensive is just icing on the cake :)

      I haven't used their face scrub, but it's on my list of products I want to try, so maybe one day soon. I keep hearing good things about it!
