Every make-up artist will agree that it’s easier to embellish a person’s natural beauty with make-up, than it is to use make-up to conceal flaws and imperfections. Therefore, skin care maintenance should be the top priority in any daily beauty regimen. As a self-proclaimed beauty ‘guinea pig’, I’m always trying new products and techniques, to discover which ones truly work. In my quest for flawless skin, I was recently introduced to an organic skin care and make-up line called Juice Beauty.
I was immediately intrigued with the Juice Beauty line, as the foundation of their products are based on fruit extracts. Knowing how potent fruit acids and enzymes are when it comes to revitalizing and exfoliating skin cells, I was naturally curious to learn more. Not only did I discover that Juice Beauty creates patented organic products, they’re also eco-friendly in their manufacturing approach as well. Their mission is “to bring high efficacy, authentically organic, and pleasurable beauty solutions to people worldwide. Juice Beauty is proud to fulfill this mission with their clinically validated products supported by solid eco-values including the purchasing from certified organic farmers and manufacturing with California’s sun (solar power).”
The three Juice Beauty products I’ve started using are as follows:
Green Apple Peel Sensitive: This organic fruit blend gently exfoliates to improve skin tone and texture. The peel (which acts like a face mask) is used as a weekly topical treatment. The alpha hydroxy acids (derived from apples, lemons, and grapes) encourage skin cell renewal, resulting in brighter, clearer skin. In addition, the peel is great for clearing up (and preventing) acne, as well as minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. Within minutes after using the peel (which you leave on for only 10 minutes), my skin looked instantly refreshed and vibrant, and my freckles and sun spots were less noticeable.
Green Apple Age Defy Serum: The serum is applied to freshly cleansed skin twice a day (morning and night), preceding a moisturizer. “Clinically proven to reduce free radical aging in skin cells. Resist gravity with this quickly absorbing serum that firms, brightens and smoothes fine lines with an antioxidant cocktail of age-defying peptides, DMAE, alpha lipoic acid, fat-soluble and CoQ10.” The serum has a light-weight feel, isn’t sticky or gooey, and absorbed quickly into my skin.
Oil-Free Moisturizer: Since I have combination skin (which can get dry in some areas and oily in the t-zone), I wanted a light-weight, non-greasy moisturizer that would hydrate my skin without feeling heavy or making it break out. This moisturizer “contains a blend of certified organic grape and pomegranate, soothing aloe vera, vitamin antioxidants and nutrient-rich sea algae to restore the skin’s natural balance.” Thus far, this one seems to have done the trick.
If you’re looking for a natural skin care line that not only cares about creating quality products that are truly effective, but also who care about helping the environment, Juice Beauty might be for you.
