Juice Beauty Review

Posted Jun 16 2009 7:53pm

So you regular readers may remember that I recently started using Lush’s Angel on Bare Skin face cleanser and I absolutely love it. But I was still in need of a great moisturizer for my face. I have always heard great things about Juice Beauty so I headed to my local Sephora to give the line a try. I was impressed with Juice Beauty’s line of products. They are all made with certified organic ingredients and are packed with powerful antioxidants and polyphenols, essential vitamins, vital phytonutrients and age-defying hydroxy acids. 

And of course, like most times I enter any Sephora, I left with much more than I actually anticipated buying. Here’s my Juice Beauty loot:

NUTRIENT MOISTURIZER:

Nutrient Moisturizer

This nutrient-rich organic moisturizer blends certified organic grape juice, vitamin-rich carrot juice and nourishing essential fatty acids to replenish and protect for smooth, healthy skin. I adore this moisturizer! As soon as I tried it on in the store I was in love. It’s ridiculously supple and moist. I feel like I’m treating my face to a small indulgence each time I use it.  I’ve been using it twice a day and my skin has never felt better. It provides great moisture without making my face feel or look greasy. And it’s long-lasting. Applying this to my face literally makes me a wee bit happier – I know, I’m a dork. 

COMPLETE INGREDIENTS:

organic juices of vitis vinifera (white grape) juice, daucus carota sativa (carrot) juice & aloe barbadensis leaf juice, organic botanical extracts of calendula officinalis flower, matricaria chamomilla flower, tilia europea (linden) leaf & rose canina (rosehip) fruit, glycerin, organic plant oils of butyrospermum parkii (shea butter) & simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed, organic essential fatty acids of oenothera biennis (evening primrose), linum usitatissimum (linseed) seed & borago officinali (borage) seed, organic honey, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, organic algae extract, squalane, limnanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), retinyl palmitate (vitamin A), magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (vitamin C), panthenol (vitamin B5), hyaluronic acid, hydroxypropyl starch phosphate, glyceryl stearate, potassium sorbate, phospholipids, beta carotene, palmitic acid, stearic acid, cetearyl glucoside, xanthan gum, sodium hydroxide, benzyl alcohol, phenoxyethanol, litsea cubeba (may chang), cananga odorata (ylang ylang), boswellia carterii (frankincense) & commiphora myrrha pure essential oils.

SPF 30 MINERAL SHEER MOISTURIZER:

SPF 30 Mineral Sheer Moisturizer

I originally was just going to use the Nutrient Moisturizer at nighttime so I also purchased the Mineral Sheer Moisturizer with SPF for daytime use. This sheer moisturizer combines chemical-free full-spectrum SPF 30 sun protection with certified organic white grape and pomegranate juices, vitamin antioxidants and essential nutrients to replenish and protect for optimum anti-aging benefits. Unfortunately, when I applied this moisturizer it made my face look ashen and white. No matter what I did I could not rub it in fully. So this will have to go back to the store. 

COMPLETE INGREDIENTS:

Active Ingredient: titanium dioxide 10%
Inactive Ingredients: juice of pyrus malus (apple) juice,* vitis vinifera (white grape) juice,* punica granatum (pomegranate) juice* & aloe barbadensis leaf juice,* cucumis sativus (cucumber) fruit extract,* camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract,* glycerin, glyceryl stearate, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil*, cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, caprylic/capric triglyceride, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), sodium PCA, hyaluronic acid, phospholipids, panthenol (vitamin B5), allantoin, cera alba (beeswax),* magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (vitamin C), benzyl alcohol, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, citrus aurantium (petitgrain), cinnamomum camphora (ho wood) & citrus reticulata (mandarin) pure essential oils.
*certified organic by a USDA approved agency

BLEMISH CLEARING SERUM:

Blemish Clearing Serum

I have blemish-prone skin and the blemish clearing serum sounded like something that would be beneficial for me. It’s a powerful hydroxy-acid complex of certified organic apple, lemon and raw cane sugar blended with vitamin antioxidants and coenzyme Q10 to help clear blemishes and even out skin tone and texture. I’ve been using this under my moisturizer and have enjoyed the results. 

COMPLETE INGREDIENTS:

juices of pyrus malus (apple) juice,* citrus medica limonum (lemon) juice* & aloe barbadensis leaf juice,* saccharum officinarum,* salix alba (willow bark) extract, glycerin, botanical extracts of taraxacum officinale (dandelion) leaf,* melissa officinalis (lemon balm) leaf,* salvia officinalis (sage) leaf* & camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf,* algae extract,* ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10), magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (vitamin C), tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), retinyl palmitate (vitamin A), panthenol (vitamin B5), allantoin, phospholipids, sodium hydroxide, sclerotium gum, phenoxyethanol, benzyl alcohol, potassium sorbate, xanthan gum, lavandula angustifolia & commiphora myrrha pure essential oils. * certified organic by a USDA approved agency

So now my facial routine is Angels on Bare Skin cleanser, Tea Tree Oil Toner, Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum and finally Juice Beauty Nutrient Moisturizer.  My face has really been responding well to all of the products. Plus I’m proud to announce that I’ve “naturaled up” my face cleansing routine – woot! 

Have any of you tried Juice Beauty? What did you think of it? What’s your facial cleansing routine?
