Acure Organics Facial Marula Oil

I am not affiliated with this company. These items were sent to me for review purposes only. My opinion is completely honest no matter how I receive any items mentioned on this blog. 

Another product that I have been testing is Facial Marula Oil from Acure Organics.  Now that I am on the moisturizing oil bandwagon, I am happy to try all varieties that come from good sources. 

Marula comes from the nuts of a marula tree.  The Acure Organics Facial Marula Oil is unrefined and coldpressed.  Their marula project also helps the women in South Africa that harvest and process for the oil. Yet another product that is paraben free, vegan, free of synthetic fragrance, silicones and pthalates and is also gluten free.

I have been applying this product to my face and neck at night.  Sometimes on a bare face and sometimes over my moisturizer.  I wanted to see how it worked both ways.  This oil is supposed to help balance and heal your skin.  It also is said to reduce redness and help with scars and stretch marks.  Not only that but you can use it on split ends and dry cuticles.

I personally noticed how soft my face feels in the morning.  The oil smells a bit nutty so that is really the only thing that is hard to get used to, especially for my boyfriend LOL  My skin not only feels soft but it looks lovely.  I can tell it has been hydrated overnight while I slept.  I definitely need this in my T-zone.  My skin is combo so I get some oiliness but also need hydration.  When a product makes me pet my skin to enjoy how soft it feels, it get my vote of approval! It is also good for you, good for the environment and good for the women who work hard to harvest the product so I think that is a win-win.  The packaging and bottle are also beautiful.  This oil retails for $15.99.
