New favorite product alert! Last week, a sweet reader named Aeshna recommended that I try a moisturizer from the Juice Beauty collection. I’ve been wanting to try Juice products forever — I’ve heard all kinds of amazing things, and have eyed them a few times at Sephora, but never bit the bullet.
Then, last weekend, I spotted a big collection of Juice goodies at my local Whole Foods. While I wasn’t looking for a moisturizer, one thing did catch my eye — the antioxidant serum. I am such a sucker for “in-between” products like this (that is, you typically use them in between cleansing and moisturizing) because they can add that extra little jolt to get your skin looking super good.
I’ve been using the serum since Sunday, both in the morning and in the evening and I’m in LOVE. The product smells fruity and well, juicy, but without being too sweet and cloying, and it has no added fragrances. It has hyaluronic acid in it (which I’ve talked about over here), along with lots of organic oils and extracts to give your skin a huge dose of antioxidants. The texture is thin, but not so thin that it runs everywhere. While it feels a bit sticky going on, the serum soaks in almost immediately. I’d say it’s less than a minute between application and being ready to add moisturizer.
And the results? Smooth, firm skin that glows. I’ve noticed my skin has held moisture better throughout the day too. Each bottle will set you back about $45, but quite honestly, you only need a couple drops to cover your entire face, so it should last a while. Double that if you decide to only use it once a day.
You can get it here or here, or at Whole Foods, too. Juice also makes a soothing serum for sensitive skin, and a blemish clearing serum for troubled skin. Check them out — maybe they’ll be just the thing for you.
