{Juice Beauty 101}

Who doesn't love hearing about a new organic skin care line that is amazing?! Okay, let's back up. To say that I have been under quite a bit of stress these past few weeks is an understatement. I knew 2011 was going to be big, I just didn't think everything (natural disasters included) would all happen within the past month! That said, normally my skin (er face) would be the canvas by which all could see what has really been going down. However, with every passing day my skin becomes clearer, softer and more hydrated. Luckily for me, I have Juice Beauty to thank!

I have been using Juice Beauty products for two weeks and I am quite pleased with the progress I'm seeing. If we eat organic foods to keep away from harmful chemicals and pesticides, why not treat our skin (which absorbs over 50% of what you put on it) with healthy ingredients? Juice Beauty is certified up to 98% organic and their products are made up of an antioxidant rich organic base. Check out what products I am using (in order of preference) and my thoughts on each!

JB Blemish Clearing Serum
This was a free gift with my first order & I love it! I put a little on problem areas before I go to bed and sometimes in the morning. It moisturizes while clearing my skin!

JB Blemish Clearing Cleanser
I stuck this on a shelf in my tub and use it on my face & neck at the end of my shower (or every other shower). It leaves my skin feeling cool and soft but not overly dry.

JB SPF 30 Mineral Sheer Moisturizer - Sheer
At first, this moisturizer seemed a little thick but a little goes a long way! It's actually quite light and absorbs fast. I recommend dabbing with a towel/tissue 5 minutes after application to wipe off any excess. It keeps my skin feeling hydrated all day long!

JB Refining Finishing Powder - Sand
I really love this stuff. I use bareMinerals products normally, but I actually like this more! It is a little paler than I expected (but it's summer), so I tend to mix a little bronzer in when applying. 

JB Correcting Concealer - Sand
This was another free gift and, considering I don't normally wear concealer, I really like how it covers dark spots (if need be) and absorbs quickly into my skin. It works great with the powder!

JB Green Apple Peel - Sensitive
I bought this to use once a week to improve skin tone and texture. Facials can make me break out a little because my skin is so sensitive and prone to react to strong products, so I'm loving this!

JB SPF 8 Lip Moisturizers
Honestly, save your money. They are really dry unless I apply another moisturizer beforehand (which I do if I wear them). They are pretty colors but there are a lot of other lip moisturizers out there!

Additional Samples - Stem Cellular Repair Treatments

I liked both samples but I'm not sure I need to add this to my skin routine yet. However, both have received rave reviews, especially from older women!

Phew! It may seem like a lot (in my defense, all of the above make up two separate orders!) but these products were totally worth a little splurging! I am glad to have a variety of healthier ingredients to nourish my skin with. They not only boost my beauty regimen, but also my confidence :) Skin worries be gone!
