Thoughtful Beauty: Juice Beauty

BeautyTienlyn JacobsonComment

I'm really excited to share the second post in the Thoughtful Beauty series, which focuses on beauty brands that exceed at creating unique and effective quality products while using natural or organic elements.  My latest obsession has been Juice Beauty. What makes this brand extra special is that they combine clinical effectiveness with organic ingredients. So really, you are getting the absolute best of both worlds. Below are three of my favorite products:

 Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel: Regular peels can make a world of difference, but if I'm being totally honest, if something takes a lot of effort, it usually means it's a routine I won't be able to maintain regularly enough to see long term results. This peel not only suits my lifestyle in that it's easy and fast to use (seriously, just slap it on and wash it off 10 minutes later). It smooths fine lines, evens tone and texture, and gives your skin an overall gorgeous glow! And if you have sensitive skin, this variation is formulated just for you.

Contains: Vitamins A, C and E, alpha hydroxy acids (malic, citric & tartaric from organic fruits, glycolic and lactic acids), and beta hydroxy acid (salicylic acid from willow bark)

Does Not Contain: Parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfactes, pesticides, artificial dyes or synthetic frangrances  

Translucent Clearing Powder: My job as an on-air fashion/lifestyle expert means that I wear makeup a lot for work. And since I'm already prone to breakouts, I have to be really careful with what kind of foundations and powders I use.  Seriously - my life got so much easier since I started using this powder. It keeps the shine away (even under harsh lights) and it prevents me from breaking out like no other powder I've used. I like to apply this all over with a brush right after I apply primer and concealer (I skip foundation whenever I can) and then add bronzer and blush after. And then I re-apply on my T-zone right before I go on camera. 

Contains: Natural antiseptic bamboo, organic aloe & tapioca powders, minerals, goji, acai, blueberry, pomegranate, kiwi, raspberry and cranberry extracts

Does Not Contain: Parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfactes, pesticides, artificial dyes or synthetic frangrances  

Green Apple Peel Nightly Brightening Pads

On nights when I don't use the Green Apple Peel, these brightening pads help achieve the same even tone and texture and glow. I use these instead of a toner and follow up with my favorite moisturizer and eye cream once my skin is dry. I also love these for traveling, since they're already pre-soaked so you don't need to bring cotton pads with you!

Contains: dulse (edible red algae) extract, vitamin B3, organic sugar cane, licorice root and fruit acids (apple and lemon), hyaluronic, organic aloe and algae

Does Not Contain: Parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfactes, pesticides, artificial dyes or synthetic frangrances
