Since our skin absorbs so much of what is placed on it, it’s really good to know that there are companies out there which make great personal care products which are safe too! Juice Beauty is one such company, and I’m glad that I finally got around to trying some of their wonderful products.
The mission of this Northern California-based company is “to bring high efficacy, authentically organic, and pleasurable beauty solutions to people worldwide.” Juice Beauty’s products contain powerful antioxidant ingredients with a 100% “authentically organic” juice base, and their formulations are made without parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, or sodium lauryl sulfates.
Alicia Silverstone has collaborated with Juice Beauty to develop a vegan line of products which I have been wanting to try for some time. So I headed to my local Ulta store, and purchased Juice Beauty’s Simply Flawless Pressed Powder, Irresistable Glow Facial Highlighter, and Purely Kissable Lip Color. I don’t know why, but I didn’t expect to love these products as much as I do. I am happy to report that all three of them will become part of my daily beauty regimen. Alicia’s line for Juice Beauty also includes a Simply Pure Chamomile Cleanser and a Simply Nourishing Moisturizer, but I have not yet purchased these products.
The three products I bought from Alicia’s line work extremely well together on the face to produce a natural and glowing look. I couldn’t help but fall in love with the pretty eco-friendly packaging which is made with over 90% recycled materials and soy ink.
The first product I tried was the Simply Flawless Pressed Powder which is described on the box as Matte Sheer. This lightweight powder is the perfect color for my skin tone and creates a flawless finish which enhances my complexion. It feels great on my face, and does not make my skin feel “cakey” or dry. Although I have been wearing the powder alone on my moisturized face, I have also been applying it over my BB Cream with a large powder brush. It works great either way. I believe that this powder will work with all skin tones.
The Irresistible Glow Facial Highlighter is meant to be applied “all-over” the face to enhance and brighten the skin for a “naturally sexy flush of color.” However, I have been using it on my cheeks with my favorite bronzer, Tarte’s Park Avenue Princess. I am really enjoying this highlighter which has been giving me that perfect “peachy-pink” radiant glow. Its color goes very well with the Purely Kissable Lip Color.
I really love the Purely Kissable Lips’ universal shade of pink. It is the perfect neutral, yet versatile, lip color…not too bright, not too dull. It can be worn during the day with an earth-colored eye shadow; but I also think it would look amazing at night with a smokey eye. I love that it feels very hydrating on my lips, and it smells so nice and fruity!
I highly recommend Alicia Silverstone’s line of beauty products for Juice Beauty. You can take comfort in knowing that they are vegan, made with certified organic ingredients, and come in eco-friendly packages.
Since I needed a new product to thoroughly clean my skin and remove all of my makeup at night, I also purchased Juice Beauty’s Cleansing Milk. This is not part of Alicia’s line, although it is vegan. I am quite happy with this creamy formula which is made with organic juices, oils and antioxidants. After using this product, I was unable to find any traces of makeup on my face which was left feeling supple and smooth.
