Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Review

I am very excited to tell you about this wonderful at home peel from Juice Beauty! I have used their products off and on over the years and when my skin was going thru some sensitive issues I sought out an organic approach to skincare that would not be so harsh on my face but still deliver good results. I have to tell you that Juice Beauty is one of the best ones I have found that will deliver spa-grade results.

The product I got to review was their Green Apple Peel Full Strength. Let me be clear right here about something. They have a Full Strength Green Peel and a Sensitive Green Peel that is not as strong as the Full Strength but both are organic but with slightly different amounts of the same ingredients and the Full Strength has a potent alpha and beta hydroxy acid complex.

The Full Strength is for mature, normal, oily or dry skin. If you have redness, rosacea or any kind of sensitive skin then you need to use the Sensitive Green Apple Peel. When you go to this page you will see some real people who had problems before using Juice Beauty and then see what their skin looks like now after using the products and they have several videos you can watch of people giving their testimony and believe it or not, one of them is a young man!

I have used at home peels for quite awhile so my face is used to them and I was able to move from the Sensitive to Full Strength. I really love this product! The first couple of times you put it on it will tingle some and if you are not used to peels it may even burn slightly.

If it does more than that wash it off immediately. This means you need to start with something alot milder. Please test this product on the side of your face or the back of your hand before applying all over your face and then find out it is too much for you!

The ingredients in the Full Strength Green Apple Peel is a mix of potent alpha and beta hydroxy acid complex from organic apple, lemon, grape, raw cane sugar and willow bark that delivers spa-grade exfoliation, revealing a brighter complexion while firming the skin and eliminating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. And I am here to tell you it works!

Now, you won't see it right away but by the time you are finished with one jar you should start seeing some improvement. If you have never used peels before start out doing only once a week for 15 minutes on a clean fresh face. Apply a good layer all over the face avoiding the eye area and be careful around the mouth. Let set for 15 minutes then wash off. Please use a very good moisturizer after any peel regardless of what brand.

Once you have used it for a few weeks you can do what I do. I use this product 2-3 times a week to get the maximum results. You will see the difference within a month if using 2 or more times a week and if you use just the once a week it might take a little longer. But, I do not want you to burn your face or flake really bad so for the first couple of weeks just do it once a week.

Besides being a peel it is an exfoliating cream that will get rid of your dead skin so new skin can replace it making your skin look radiant and smooth. The cost of a 2 fl.oz. jar is $45.00 but if you have a peel at the derm's office you will pay upwards of $150 or more per peel. It may take a little longer but it will be safer and you control the amount you want to use based on what you are trying to achieve.

Along with the full size jar of the Green Apple Full Strength Peel they sent me a couple of sample packets of a new product they have called Stem Cellular Repair and there was enough in it for 2 days and I was amazed at how smooth my skin felt. The other packet was the Eye Stem Cellular Repair and the area around my eyes just drank it all up in one swoop! Juice Beauty has a whole line of products to help enhance the use of their Peels and to get the most out of them.

In the beginning, I would use their moisturizers and eye creams to get the maximum benefit. I must admit I have been hodge podging here and there but my skin has already adjusted to the use of more powerful skincare but for someone just starting out it is best to stay with the same brand until you get to know what makes it all work better then you can experiment.

But I am so confident you will love Juice Beauty that you will want to stay with them. They have customers who go on their website and write reviews of their products so if you don't quite believe me then go read the reviews! I, personally, can't wait to try some of the other great products that they have. Go to this page and read the difference between what is in their products versus some of the other companies who put all kinds of chemicals in their products and you will see why they can say with such great confidence "Organics to Clear Skin in 30 Days"!

Now, for the part I know you are just dying to read, History! Ta-Da! Did you think I would let you get away that easy? This may be a big company but they have a big heart and just knew that someone like me might come knocking one day and want some background, so they were kind enough to provide it! I love it when "a plan comes together"!

Here we go:

Juice Beauty… Innovative organic beauty solutions masterminded by a California team passionate about organic and healthy lifestyles and whose organic products are backed by powerful science. It all started when Karen Behnke, serial wellness entrepreneur, who built one of the first corporate wellness companies in the country, developed a keen interest in personal care products upon becoming pregnant with her first child at the age of 40. She was astounded to learn that, although the skin absorbs over 60% of what is placed on it, there were very few available healthy personal care products that worked well.

Karen subsequently bought the name “Juice Beauty” and launched the Company. Karen, lead investor and head of the business, brought together a group of well known executive investors with whom she had long term working relationships and that shared the drive to build a mission driven business. Juice Beauty’s mission is to bring authentically organic, high efficacy and pleasurable beauty solutions to people worldwide. Juice Beauty is proud to fulfill this mission by not only supporting organic farming, solar manufacturing, and the recycled paper business, but to put the healthiest ingredients (that work!) on customers’ bodies.

Karen has assembled a team of experienced professionals including Melissa Jochim, Director of Product Development, who has a profound understanding of science and a deep passion for organic formulations. Together, along with Juice Beauty’s team of scientists, they pioneered the organic juice based formulations that are so fitting to the brand name. Juice Beauty was just awarded its’ first patent for the unique Green Apple Peel formulation and is continuously acknowledged in the press with “best of” awards.

Juice Beauty has a 100% Certified Organic Juice Base:

Most beauty products that use “organic” in their marketing use only a few organic ingredients in a water base, making the total organic content dilute and often less than 5%. Instead of the typical water base that cannot be certified “organic or pesticide free,” Juice Beauty puts over 100 USDA certified organic powerful ingredients into a 100% certified organic juice base (made from over 30 different juices) thus bringing the total organic content up to 98% in every product. Clinically validated age-defying results:

Juice Beauty uses powerful ingredients such as alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10, DMAE, peptides, fat soluble Vitamin C and essential fatty acids for optimum results proven by clinical studies that have shown an 85% reduction in free radical skin cell damage (which means less wrinkles and sun spots!).

Commitment to Healthy Ingredients:

The Juice Beauty team continually searches the West Coast for the purest, most effective organic ingredients, including organic juices, aloe vera, honey, botanicals, plant oils, and raw cane sugar from farms that specialize in sustainable and organic farming. These amazing formulations are made without parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances.
