ApotheCARE Essentials Review

ApotheCARE Essentials creates targeted skin care, hair care, and cleansing products that are grounded in the purity of nature and proven, scientific approaches to optimized beauty solutions. I tried two of their skin and hair care products recently and I love them!

*Disclaimer: These products were sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

ApotheCARE Essentials use traditional apothecary wisdom and cutting edge modern science to create products that deliver optimal results. They use carefully selected ingredients that are known for their hair and skin benefits. They use a phyto-extraction technique to extract the core essentials of six plants: burdock (detox), white willow (soothing), rosemary (refreshing), ginkgo biloba (balancing), sage (purifying), and seabuckthron (revitalizing).

The products can be purchased at stores like CVS, Target, and Ulta.

Their recently launched THE RESCUER Anti-Dandruff 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner is free from parabens, silicones, and dyes. It's safe for all hair types, but is specially made to combat dandruff. Ingredients include eucalyptus to soothe and salicylic acid to control flaky scalp.

I have a very oily scalp and dandruff so I was excited to try this shampoo and conditioner. Salicylic acid is a great ingredient for balancing oil production. I used this after my hapkido (Korean martial art) class when my hair was especially sweaty and dirty and it left my scalp and hair feeling so clean! I did find that it was a little harsh on my scalp (salicylic acid is really powerful) for daily use, but I definitely recommend using this once or twice a week if you have issues with oiliness or dandruff.

I also tried two products from the ApotheCARE Essentials skincare line, including the phytoQUENCH Hydrating Day Lotion. It contains Japanese blood grass and burdock roots that help trap moisture into the skin to maintain hydration. The lotion comes in an air pump dispenser, making it easy to get just the right amount and not waste any product. It feels silky-smooth on my skin and absorbs quickly. This is a lovely daily moisturizer.

My favorite product of the three is the phytoQUENCH Replenishing Serum. It also contains Japanese blood glass and burdock root, along with hyaluronic acid, to help seal moisture into the skin. It's incredibly light and smells so good! The dispenser is a dropper bottle, and just two or three drops are enough to cover my entire face and neck area. It glides on smoothly and feels great on my skin.

I have noticed a difference in my hair and skin after using the ApotheCARE Essentials products for about a month. My skin feels much more hydrated after using the phytoQUENCH products, and my hair is less oily with the THE RESCUER shampoo and conditioner!
Bottom Line: I think ApotheCARE Essentials has a great line of products at affordable prices. They use high quality ingredients and each of the products I tried worked well with my needs.
