As I was reading about companies to boycott on the OCA, I found a list of USDA approved companies. That's when I came across Juice Beauty and thought I'd check them out. Juice Beauty products are made with real organic juices! They carry several USDA certified products, but all of their organic juices have been certified. Here is their company info:
We Do Not Have:
Organic ingredients in a base of organic fruit juices, making our total organic content up to 95% Powerful antioxidant technology, including alpha-lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10 DMAE, peptides, fat soluble vitamin C and essential fatty acids for optimum age-defying results Certified organic ingredients packed with age-defying potency...powerful antioxidants and polyphenols, essential vitamins, vital phytonutrients and age-defying hydroxy acids Met the strict USDA organic guidelines for all of our certified organic ingredients A strict no animal testing policy A 100% vegetarian ingredients policy
I was sent quite a few samples of Juice Beauty to review and once you get passed the smell, they all are amazing. My favorite by far is the Green Apple Peel. It is made with a powerful hydroxy-acid complex of certified organic apple, lemon, grape juices, raw cane sugar and white willow bark. I haven't worn a peel or mask in probably 17 years. I have super sensitive skin and the last time I did a mask, I had a horrible outbreak. I have to be honest and say I've been avoiding the Green Apple Peel just because I was nervous about a outbreak. I tried the peel 3 nights ago and am so mad I didn't try it sooner. My face hasn't been this smooth since I was a baby. I really felt 5 years younger when I looked in the mirror! With 1 use, the peel got rid of all of my blackheads on my nose. I've used it twice since then and it's seriously cleaning out my deep pores. The recommended use is once a week, but with the results I got with one use, I've had to keep using it to see what else it can do! You can buy a 2 oz. jar for $39 or you can purchase a sample size for $5. I seriously recommend trying this if you have blackheads or uneven skin texture.

My next favorite Juice Beauty product is the Blemish Clearing Serum. When I was a teenager, I had perfect skin. It wasn't until I got pregnant that I started getting acne. Unfortunately the zits haven't gone away since then. I especially break out before Aunt Flow comes to visit and Juice Beauty has been amazing during this last visit. As soon as a blemish starts to appear, you put the serum on and (for me) the next day it's gone. Before Aunt Flow's visit this month, I used a tiny bit of the serum where my problem spots are and no breakouts occurred! The Blemish Serum is made with a powerful hydroxy-acid complex of certified organic apple, lemon and raw cane sugar blended with vitamin antioxidants and coenzyme Q10. The Blemish Serum also helps even out skin tone and texture.
I told you I was having issues with turning 30 in 6 months. Yes, the countdown has begun. It didn't bother me until my half birthday... now I'm dreading it and the wrinkles that follow. Juice Beauty has an awesome Green Apple Antioxidant Serum that helps smooth fine lines while rejuvenating and firming your skin. I have been using the Serum for a month now and my wrinkles are really dulling! It is made with a powerful age-defying DMAE, vitamin antioxidants, alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10, peptides and essential nutrients. I am hoping this will hold off all of my wrinkles for ageless skin!
I also got to try the Oil Free Moisturizer and Green Apple Cleansing Gel. Both left my face feeling smooth and radiant. I have really loved all of the Juice Beauty products that I've tried. Juice Beauty offer clinically validated age-defying results that show 85% reduction in free radical skin cell damage while being safe and gentle on your skin.
You can try out these products that I've reviewed in the Green Apple Age Defying Solutions Kit for $45. It comes with Green Apple Cleansing Gel 4 oz, Green Apple Peel Full Strength .5 oz, Green Apple Antioxidant Serum .25 oz, Green Apple SPF 15 Moisturizer .5 oz, Green Apple Antioxidant Moisturizer .5 oz
