Now that I am in my early 30’s, taking better care of my skin has become a major priority. I’ve always struggled with acne, discoloration, and scarring. But rather than try to clear up my skin, I spent more time searching for makeup that would cover up my problem areas. Often, the products I found, were heavy and suffocated my sensitive skin.
When I turned 30, I became more comfortable with the fact that I didn’t have flawless skin and started to turn to lighter makeup products that would allow my skin to breathe during the day. That made a huge difference. Now, I actually look forward to the days when I can go sans makeup because I know that it is better for my skin.
After I had my first facial last month and found out that my skin was on the drier side, I knew I needed to invest in a good moisturizer. To date, I had yet to find one that didn’t leave my skin feeling oily or greasy—a problem that for years made me neglect the nightly routine entirely.
Then, I was introduced to Juice Beauty. On a recent trip to my local Ulta, a representative from Juice Beauty came over and started talking to me about the organic skin care brand. I’m always skeptical when it comes to trying new products on my face, but after speaking with the representative about how lightweight their moisturizer was and how it was great for sensitive skin, I decided to give it a try. She recommended that I start with the Green Apple Brightening Emulsion and tested a small amount on the top of my hand. As I rubbed it in, I noticed that It absorbed quickly into my skin and left my hand feeling smooth and conditioned. I liked that the moisturizer was more of a liquid consistency instead of a cream, and that it had a refreshing citrus fragrance to it. The fact that Juice Beauty is made in California and that this product was formulated with an organic antioxidant rich botanical juice base made trying this moisturizer an easy choice.
I’ve been using the moisturizer for a couple of weeks now and I still love how it smells and the consistency. My face is glowing after I use it and it leaves my skin hydrated and smooth. I recently started increasing my moisturizing regimen to twice a day and have been wearing this product under my makeup for a little added glow.
This is the first product I have tried from Juice Beauty, but overall, I am really impressed with how well it works and my skins response to it. It is definitely a line I would purchase more products from—especially since they use natural ingredients that are gentle on my skin.
