Even though body lotion is extra important for me in the winter, I think that as spring approaches I feel like it's just as important because I want to prep the skin on my body for being shown off a little bit more than heavy sweaters and boots allow. For this reason, I've been trying out a lot of different body lotions lately to see what's really going to work for me in the summer months. I like something a little lighter during these months that will give me hydration and keep my skin looking and feeling smooth but doesn't feel heavy or overwhelming on the skin. Recently, I've been testing out two of the ACURE Organics Body Lotions and because I've been loving so many ACURE products over the past year I had pretty high expectations.

The ACURE Organics Body Lotion is available in 4 different varieties - Fragrance Free Ultra Hydrating, Calming, Energizing and Nourishing. Each has a different ingredient deck for different needs.
The directions for each of the lotions on the ACURE website makes me chuckle, similiarly to the directions for The Magical Wonderfluff. "Apply to skin as needed and then ask yourself how you ever lived without this lotion."
ACURE Organics Fragrance Free Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion*
Rescue your rough skin with this fragrance free Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion. Fight flaky dryness with a super moisturizing complex of cocoa butter, evening primrose, argan oil and CoQ10. So smooth, you’ll think it’s hitting on you.
First off, I have to say that I love that they have a fragrance free option in the mix, because there are so many workplaces and such that have gone fragrance free in recent years and it can be hard to find a lotion without a strong fragrance. I find that the texture of this lotion is light, but really packs enough moisture to keep my skin feeling soft and hydrated for 24 hours. I do think that in the winter, when my skin starts to behave like a desert, this isn't quite enough for me, but now that the weather has gotten a little warmer and my skin has started to come back to life a little bit this has been a great addition to my body care regime.
ACURE Organics Calming Body Lotion Lavender*
It’s been a long day. Luckily, this calming lotion is here to help you decompress. Super moisturization plus the soothing scent of lavender and sacred lotus stem cell you say? If we hadn’t made it, we’d be thanking the people that did.
It's only been in the last year that I've really discovered a love for lavender. I used to kind of hate it, I admit, but now that I've really seen how much it can calm my anxious mind I find that I kind of can't live without it. I've been using this as my lotion before bed and I really find that it lives up to the claim of being calming. The formula, to me, is really similar to the Ultra Hydrating lotion, both in texture and efficacy, and I find that I love applying it before bed because I can slap it on fairly quickly, go to sleep, and wake up in the morning with skin that feels silky and hydrated.
While I don't think a body lotion is ever going to really blow me out of the water, I feel like ACURE has continued to impress me with these products. Honestly, I don't think I've ever not really enjoyed a product that I've tried from ACURE.
If you're unfamiliar with the brand, all of their products are free of gluten, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and artificial colours and are never tested on animals. They're also all available at a really great price point, so you don't have to spend a ton to get really great products.
If you're interested in picking this up, it's available in Canada at Well.ca & iHerb!
