.
SB 241, sponsored by Senator Linda Holmes (D-Aurora) and signed by Governor J.B. Pritzker on August 9, prohibits the import or sale of any cosmetic if the final product or any ingredient was tested on animals after January 1, 2020.

Last year, California became the first state to enact β€œhumane cosmetics” legislation, followed by Nevada in June. Illinois’ new law provides additional incentives for cosmetics companies to invest in non-animal alternatives to help them stay competitive in a changing global market while sparing animals from painful tests.

Acure Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion Review (Fragrance-Free)

Acure Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion

Every time the seasons change, my skin tends to get extra dry so I’ve been on the hunt for a great dry skin remedy that is also fragrance-free or scent-free. I’ve heard great things about the cruelty-free brand, Acure as they offer affordable natural and organic skincare products. I’ve been impressed with a couple samples of their products that were included in some monthly cruelty-free beauty boxes and so I thought I’d give their ultra hydrating body lotion a try!

Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion by Acure Review

The body lotion smells mostly like cocoa butter which I’m not a huge fan of. I was looking for a fragrance-free body lotion that would also be predominantly scent-free as well. The lotion is not as thick as I was expecting for an ‘ultra-hydrating’ formula and it takes a bit of effort to rub into my skin. I find that the lotion just sits on top of my skin leaving white streaks rather than being absorbed into my skin. It does leave my skin feeling moisturized but unfortunately not for long as I feel like I have to reapply often.

Final Thoughts on Acure Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion

This being one of my first purchased Acure product, I was sadly disappointed. I really wanted to like it as it is one of the more affordable body lotions made with natural and organic ingredients. I’ve also read other reviews online that Acure might have recently changed their formula with this particular body lotion. I haven’t decided if I would try their other lotions after this one, have you tried the ultra hydrating body lotion by Acure or any of their other body lotions?

    It was such an amazing article. But form my point of view the product I am using frankincense and myrrh lotionis really effective. It will improve your hairs for sure so try it once people Shea Butter deeply moisturizes and repairs skin with vitamins and essential fatty acids, while Frankincense & Myrrh extracts possess anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-aging properties which aids in healing dry cracked skin.
