Juice Beauty Green Apple Moisturiser Reviews

Review of Juice Beauty Green Apple Antioxidant Moisturiser
by Gill M.
Packaging: The sample of Juice Beauty Green Apple Antioxidant Moisturiser is packaged in a small transparent jar with a white lid in a recycled box. (The full size cream comes in a transparent glass jar in a recyclable box.) The box is mostly white with grey and black text and a green apple logo on the front. The back panel of the box is the same green colour with grey and black text. The text on the jar (the name of the moisturiser and the size – 7ml) is clear easy to read. However I found the text on the box – including the ingredients list and instructions for use was so small it was exceptionally difficult to read. I presume this was because it was a sample size and the text is in larger type on the full size product box.
Application: This Juice Beauty cream is a daily moisturiser for normal, dry and aging skin. It can also be used nightly for optimum results. Warm it in the palms of your hands before smoothing over face, neck and décolleté. It is a light moisturiser, with a fantastic scent. A little goes a long way as well!
Ingredients: This Juice Beauty moisturiser features organic hydroxy-acid (a brightening complex of organic apple, lemon and grape juices) to exfoliate, improve skin tone and texture. It is vitamin-rich and includes powerful antioxidants to rejuvenate the skin. It also includes organic essential fatty acids which are perfect for dry, sensitive and aging skin. A “Best Before” date is stamped on the bottom of the jar.
It does not contain parabens, pesticides, harsh surfactants or sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals or phthalates. Juice Beauty adheres to a strict no animal testing policy and a 100% vegetarian ingredients policy. All Juice Beauty's organic ingredients are certified by a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved agency. Although the box states it is “made with certified organic ingredients”, not all of the ingredients are organic. The organic ingredients are marked with an asterisk on the box, however the print is so small on the trial size box that I struggled to read them, and had to resort to looking up the ingredients on the internet.
Results: Juice Beauty Green Apple Antioxidant Moisturiser has a fantastic, fresh, clean, natural fragrance – you can smell the apple, lemon and grape juice in it! I have both dry and sensitive skin. Unfortunately I often find moisturisers don’t hydrate my skin enough or if they do, they tend to aggravate it. I was really surprised with this cream – it was very light when I applied it, yet provided enough moisture for my skin. (Usually it takes a really thick, rich moisturiser to nourish my skin). The Juice Beauty Green Apple Antioxidant Moisturiser absorbed very quickly without leaving any sticky residue on my skin. My skin feels soft, looks healthy and is hydrated. I would definitely recommend it.
Suitable for various skin types.
Very hydrating for such a light cream.
It does not aggravate my sensitive skin.
Fresh natural fragrance.
Made in the USA – therefore I’m concerned about the carbon footprint and air miles. Could use a British made organic moisturiser e.g. PAI skincare.
Quite expensive, but you do get 60ml in a normal jar. A lot of other moisturisers are cheaper, but you get less for your money.
Personally I prefer pump dispensers to jars – I feel they are more hygienic than putting my fingers in a jar everyday!
