Udiâ€™s LOVES Gluten-Free Skin Care by Juice Beauty!
A few months ago, my colleague Maeve wrote an article about gluten-free skincare products and mentioned Juice Beauty, but we really didn’t dive into how much we love Juice Beauty. Juice Beauty offers anti-oxidant packed organic skin care products. Their all-natural ingredients help reduce free-radical skin cell damage offering a more youthful appearance.
Being in my mid 20’s, I don’t think that I need an extravagant skincare routine with tons of products, but I still struggle with stress-induced acne from time to time. I have tried countless numbers of products. Some with chemicals, and some without chemicals, but overall I really don’t think any of them added any noticeable value to my skin or overall appearance.
When Juice Beauty sent me their organic and gluten-free Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer I had no idea I was set up to fall in love!
Let’s start with the website description: “A proprietary blend of fruit stem cells deeply penetrates the skin to repair DNA damage and encourage new cell growth to aggressively firm and eliminate wrinkles. Antioxidant-rich fruit juices, fat-soluble Vitamin C and plant oils hydrate and improve elasticity for lasting, advanced age defy results.”-JuiceBeauty.com If you have not had the opportunity to try this best-selling product I hope that the following review will convince you to give it a shot, especially if you are like me and feel like you’ve tried it all.
The first surprise the Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer gives is the bottle. When you open the lid there is a pump that you press to send the lotion up into this little tray so that you are not constantly dipping your fingers into the same tub, where bacteria can fester. Next, as soon as you apply the lotion to your face, you can instantly smell the apples and fresh fruit juices that went into making this super soft cream. Not only is it soft when you apply it to your face, but it is also very light in weight while offering maximum moisture (living in Colorado, where the climate is dry, we really put moisturizers to the test).
One month later I have noticed a dramatic change in my skin’s elasticity. Even if I forget to use the lotion one morning or evening, I don’t feel like I am losing moisture at the rate I did in the past. I have also noticed some smoothing effects. Like I said earlier, I’ve had my battles with acne through my teens and early 20’s, and this caused some mild scarring. Although the mild scarring still exists, it has definitely smoothed the scars all across the board.
Since trying Juice Beauty’s moisturizer, I’ve also tried their Green Apple Peel, Full Strength. I’ve been using this once a week to boost results from the moisturizer and so far I have no complaints. If you are used to peels that harden and crack, you may be surprised at first, but this is far gentler and I’m guessing it’s also better for your skin in the long term.
All in all, Juice Beauty has made a new #1 fan out of me and I am thrilled that their organic beauty products are also gluten-free. After all, it’s important to take care of the largest organ we have, our skin!
