Acure Facial Cleanser Gel

acure face wash

Acure is one of my favorite skincare brands! I’ve tried a variety of their face washes when staying the night with friends’ but have never actually used it as a daily face wash.

In my experience, the formulas always left my skin feeling clean and moisturized, but never dried out or tight. All the scents are pretty without smelling perfume-y. This specific face wash is recommended for normal to oily skin and is also said to do a great job removing makeup.
