Juice Beauty Age Defy Green Apple Skincare Review & Giveaway

I can admit it: I love looking at, hunting for and reading about beauty products. Lately, I have been on the hunt for some new products to try as my skin started breaking out. You may think ‘big deal’ but I am not 18 and my skin has never had a big breakout problem.  I was honestly pretty bummed about it.

Ironically, I was contacted by Juice Beauty about a month ago to see if I was interested in trying and reviewing some of their products. I told them I would be happy to try them but I would spend at least 2 weeks using them and had to love them before I agreed to write about the line.

I was sent the ‘Age Defying Solutions Kit’ as well as the Hydration Mask to try. Here are my thoughts:

Cleansing Gel: I was thrilled as soon as I used the cleansing gel as I require a face wash that rinses off easily, does not leave my skin feeling dry or not fresh and I do not want to have to use a large amount of it to wash my face.

Serum: The serum is light and spreads easily which my skin appreciated. I don’t want to have to tug my skin to apply a product and this was smooth.

Moisturizer: I was looking for a light-weight moisturizer for the spring and summer and this was perfect. My only wish was that it has an SPF in it so I peeked at the product line and saw that they do have a SPF version however that version was not in the kit.

Eye Treatment: My requirement for an eye cream is that I must be able to easily and lightly tap it around the eye area and not have to rub it in for it to be absorbed. I also love when it feels cool on my skin. My only issue is not with the cream but that the sample size in the kit needs to be more generous.

Peel & Mask: The great thing about these is that they did not set up so tight and uncomfortable that I felt like I could not talk. I felt refreshed after using it. For my skin which gets dry easily, I would not use it more the peel more than twice a week. Actually, they have a sensitive version that I might try when this one runs out.

What else do I love about Juice Beauty? The products do not contain parabens, propylene or butylene glycols, petroleum, sulphates, PEGs, TEA, DEA, phthalates, GMO, silicones, pesticides, artificial dyes or fragrances. Do I hear you applauding?
