Do any of you know the company Juice Beauty? They are quite wonderful… their mission is to “bring authentically organic, high efficacy and pleasurable beauty solutions to people worldwide” and they are right on the money! They have sweetly given me a bunch of their skin care products and make up and I have been enjoying it big time. If you go to their website and choose to buy any of their products (anything from lip balm to acne aides to make up, etc.) and enter the promo code ‘MOKSHA’ at check out you will get a FREE Green Apple SPF 15 Moisturizer that won the prizes for best moisturizer in InStyle magainze this year! There is no catch and no minimum that you must spend to get this. Enjoy!
Now, to give you a few tips and details about the products that they have sent me that I love….
Yes, it is true; my skin gets all cranky and seems to have an ongoing, somewhat wild courtship with acne. For the longest time I was using frightening things such as benzoyl peroxide (shown in recent studies to cause tumors to grow on mice) and decided to make the shift. I am now using my own blend of argan oil, jojoba oil, and tea tree oil at night and then this lovely Juice Beauty product during the day. My skin, dare I say it, is responding with quite a bit of grace. Here is what Juice Beauty says about this product:
A powerful hydroxy acid complex of certified organic apple, lemon and willow bark unclogs pores, reduces breakouts and lightens scars while organic aloe, coenzyme Q10 and fat-soluble vitamin C renew the skin for a fresher, clearer complexion.
This feels so lovely I kind of want to eat it (and think it might possibly be edible). Is this strange??
Here is what they say:
A proprietary blend of fruit stem cells and a high concentration of fat-soluble Vitamin C works at the cellular level to repair skin DNA damage and encourage new cell growth to aggressively firm and eliminate dark circles and fine lines around the eyes. Antioxidant-rich fruit juices and plant oils hydrate and improve elasticity for lasting, advanced age defy results.
Now we venture off into their makeup…. I am not a crazy makeup person at all (and barely wear it on a normal day) until it comes time for me to venture onto the stage and then I pile it on. Since I received it, I have been wearing their make up at every concert. It is wonderful stuff that is mineral based, does not cause my skin to react (which is one of the main things that won me over) and has the perfect tones for almost any person’s skin. Plus, it doesn’t have to be dramatic stage makeup…. when piled on gently it is subtle and gives a glow. The main products I have used are:
Conditioning Lip Color- I have been using the shade ‘fig’:
This Conditioning Lip Color is a kiss of nature for your lips. The combination of antioxidant-rich berries, minerals and sweet orange is packed with the perfect amount of pucker-up color.
Illuminating Eye Color– I have been using the shade ‘cappuccino’:
This Illuminating Eye Color provides a sheer shimmer of color. The combination of organic aloe powder, fruit extracts and minerals brightens and highlights your eyes with earthly sheens of color.
Glowing Cheek Color- I have been using the shade ‘fig’:
This Glowing Cheek Color will give you the perfect blush of nature. The combination of organic aloe powder, fruit extracts and minerals will give your complexion an organic, healthy glow.
