New from Acure: Aromatherapeutic Argan Oils & a Sale from Acure!

*PR Samples

Right as I was finishing my current bottle of Acure Argan Oil I was surprised by the release of three new aromatherapeutic organic argan oils.  These three oils will get put to the test over the upcoming fall and winter months.  I love how multipurpose argan oil is.  Use it as a facial oil, as a body oil, as a hair serum, as a hand moisturizer & cuticle oil, and also to soften rough elbows and heels.  I use it to boost the moisture content of my hand creams, night creams, and lotions.  Called "cocktailing" just add a few drops of argan oil to your favorite lotion and cream to boost the hydration power.



Oils are a favorite in my green beauty routine and combining them with aromatherapy make them that much more pleasant in my experience.  Let's take a closer look at the three new argan oils that Acure is launching.

Petit Vour: Beauty & The Box

*PR Sample

This is September's Petit Vour's subscription box: Beauty & The Box.  This month's co-curator is Logical Harmony.

Every month that I've received this cruelty-free, vegan, luxury beauty box I've been pleased.  I've also found myself starting to "stalk the mailman" so Petit Vour is fast becoming a Naturally Paula favorite!



This month's offerings:

Ellovi Tinted Lip Butter* $5 (full size).  A tinted lip butter with only 6 ingredients.  This is a product I'm very interested in trying. The color comes from alkanet root extract and the rest of the ingredients are nourishing oils and butters.

Lily Lolo Mineral Eye Shadow* in Vanilla Shimmer $12 (on the USA site a full size is 2.5 grams I received 1.5 gram jar).  I'm seeing various sizes listed for full size jars.  Lily Lolo's USA site has 2.5 grams & Petit Vour has 2 grams.  On the UK site the full size jar size ranges form 1.5 grams to 4 grams.  Sufficed to say, I have no idea what the standard size is for a mineral eye shadow from Lily Lolo.  That said I think the shade I was sent is going to be very easy to work into my collection and I look forward to using it.  

Root Science RS Youth Serum* 6 ml Daily Face Moisturizer for all skin types.  Full size retails for $80.  My travel size sample has an approximate value of $16 (packaging not accounted for).  Description: "RS Youth Serum contains the super ingredient, tamanu. Tamanu has been studied for its ability to reduce the appearance of scars, with results nothing short of a miracle. Valued for its superior healing benefits and skin regenerative properties, tamanu oil also contains anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties as well as fungicide and bactericide agents. This incredible oil also promotes new tissue formation, accelerating healing and healthy skin growth."  I look forward to giving this facial oil a try.  I love using face oils and currently use them as my main moisturizer.  Oils are the way to go baby!

Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-In Conditioner* (2 oz. travel size retails for $13.20).  I love leave-in conditioners and use one every time I wash my hair.  With the seasons changing and the opportunity for air drying my hair getting less and less the use of a leave-in conditioner will increase.  When it comes to hair products I typically need at least travel-size products to figure out if I'm going to like them or not, but for a leave-in product 2 oz is very generous.  

Subscriptions cost $15/month.  This months box has an approximate value of $46.20.  I'd most definitely recommend purchasing this months box if it is still available.  And as always all opinions are my own.
