Product Review: Juice Beauty Organic Facial Mask

When I realized the body products I had been using---products from the natural foods co-op no less-- were full of toxins and carcinogens, I went on the hunt for products that would help my skin without hurting my body in the long term. This is no easy feat, there are not many USDA certified organic body products out there.

Luckily I have been able to find some excellent options. I have been using Juice Beauty for about a month and I do notice a difference. Part of that is that it's the first time in a long time I've taken the time to use skin care. Between being the mother of an extremely active four year old and not being able to find any decent products that I was willing to put on my face, I just stopped. What a luxury it's been to use Juice Beauty!

This mask makes my skin feel clean and soft and invigorated. I think I need a little more time to note whether it actually makes me look younger, but Juice Beauty says their products are clinically proven to reduce the effects of aging. This makes sense since they use antioxidant ingredients which scavenge free radicals--those pesky mutants that make us look older. Also, if you're not rubbing toxic carcinogens all over your skin, it's probably going to look better!

My skin is not tolerant of a lot of products--I don't like the feel of most skin care and generally can't wait to rinse it off. Not the case here. I think the problem before was all the chemicals I was unknowingly putting on my skin. It would feel heavy and stingy and cause rashes. Juice Beauty is gentle yet still feels like it's getting the job done. Kind of like a smoothie for your face.

I recommend Juice Beauty whole heartedly. Just make sure you pick one that has the USDA seal if that is what you're after, as some of their products are not certified. If you just want to treat yourself with a little perk-up, or give a great birthday present--Juice Beauty Organic Rejuvenating Facial Mask would be an excellent choice.
