Here’s an updated review on the Acure Brightening Day Cream. I’ve used this for nearly a week. I don’t think it’s too early to give my thoughts on it. Alright! Let’s get started! 🙂

I really wanted this face cream to work. It has nourishing skin care ingredients. I needed a more hydrating moisturizer too considering that my skin is dry from acne treatments. But, it didn’t work out for me. This face cream is too heavy for my oily, acne-prone skin. It’s thicker than I expected.

Here’s the ingredient list:

Water (Aqua), Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Oil, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Butter, Cetyl-Stearyl Acohol, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Caprylate, Glycerin, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Glyceryl Laurate, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Sodium Levulinate, D-Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, Evening Primrose Oil, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract*, Tocopherol, Potassium Sorbate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) Bud Oil, Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Extract*, Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract*, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract*, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Extract*, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract*, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract*, Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos) Leaf Extract*, Centella Asiatica Meristem (Cica) Culture, Echinacea Angustifolia Meristem (Echinacea) Cell Culture, Marrubium Vulgare Meristem Cell Culture, Chlorella Pyrenoidosa Extract, Argania Spinsosa (Argan) Oil*, Xanthan Gum.

The two ingredients that stand out to me that could be potential pore cloggers are coconut oil and cocoa butter. Cocoa butter is very thick. It’s known to be comedogenic. It’s not suitable for acne-prone skin. Coconut oil is a hit or miss for people (so I have noticed). It’s also known to be comedogenic. For me, it depends on the formulation. I usually do not use coconut oil-based skin care products unless the formula is lightweight. The Acure Brightening Day Cream falls under ‘too thick’. If you have acne-prone skin, do a patch test with this cream first before applying it to your whole face. It just didn’t feel good on my acne-prone skin as the days went on. I tried rubbing the cream on other parts of my body (including face without other skin care products) to see how well it blends in, it takes a lot of effort to blend it in. =/

I hope this review was helpful! I couldn’t find any other reviews if it’s OK to use on acne-prone skin or not. So, here you go! 🙂

Update 091220: This makes a good hand cream. 🙂

Hello everyone! I began my Tretinoin Journey a few days ago. Look forward to my 1 Week Results by the end of the week! I’m so excited to share my experience with everyone! 🙂 While on Treitnoin, my skin has become very sensitive. I needed to add some moisturizing skin care products into my skin care routine. The Acure Brightening Day Cream is one of them. I’ll share the rest later. Let’s focus on the Acure Brightening Day Cream today! =)

About Acure Brightening Day Cream:

My thoughts on the Acure Brightening Day Cream:

I’ve used the Acure Brightening Day Cream before. I can’t recall if I liked it or not. It was so long ago. haha. I decided to give it another chance just because. My skin needs all the moisture it can get right now. At the same time, I want to achieve a brighter, more even complexion too. This product hits both of those points. It’s also a vegan and cruelty-free skin care product! Yes! 🙌🏻 I haven’t used it for long, but here’s a quick review on what I think…

So far, it feels lightweight, creamy, and moisturizes the skin. It’s not the most moisturizing face cream, but it’s good enough for my oily, acne-prone skin. I had trouble applying the cream to my face because it wouldn’t absorb properly. This could be from the other skin care products I had on my skin prior to applying the cream to my face. Who knows. But eventually the cream absorbed into my skin without peeling off. Since I am on Tret, it did sting my skin. No biggie. Seriously, no big deal. I know my skin is extra sensitive right now. I’m trying to get as much moisture as I can get (stuff that my skin has been missing out on for ages, lol). The only thing I’m worried about is if it’ll break me out or not. This day cream says it’s for all skin types, but it contains oils and obviously is for normal-dry skin types. We’ll see! Wish me luck! 😁
