Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I know that many of you continue to incorporate more and more healthy skincare products into your daily beauty routine, and therefore I wanted to introduce you to a Juice Beauty product that I have been using recently. Before I began testing it, I thought that I would probably like Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer, but for some reason I didn't expect to love it as I do. Despite the fact that I have normal/combination skin, I tend to switch to richer and more moisturizing formulas during the colder months of the year, and I initially thought that this moisturizer would not provide me with the level of moisture and hydration that I seek during this time of the year, but instead that it would be perfect for my skin during the warmer months. However,  I was very pleasantly surprised to see that this moisturizer not only provided my skin with ample moisture and hydration, but in fact that this potent antioxidant-rich, anti-aging cream did a remarkable job nourishing my skin and leaving it soft, supple, dewy and luminous. 

One of the great strengths of this cream is that the Malic Acid gently evens skin tone while the Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, DMAE, Alpha Lipoic Acid smooth and plump the skin, and noticeably reduce the appearance of fine lines. The formula is lightweight, fast-absorbing and very concentrated– therefore a very small amount is all that is needed.

It has a light and clean natural aroma that delights the senses, but it fades away soon after it is absorbed.

Directions: After cleansing  the face, massage this moisturizer into face, neck and décolleté. Use morning and night.
According to Juice Beauty,

Create a brighter and smoother looking complexion with this clinically proven age defy moisturizer that combines certified organic botanical juices with a powerful antioxidant cocktail of alpha lipoic acid, CoQ10, Vitamin C, peptides and DMAE for optimum age-defying results.

The Juice Beauty GREEN APPLE® Age Defy Moisturizer is designed for all skin types (except sensitive skin), 20's and up and is effective for dark spots, discoloration, uneven skin tone and texture. NOTE: the Juice Beauty GREEN APPLE® Brightening Collection is not designed for very sensitive or rosacea skin due to the alpha/beta hydroxy fruit acids--if you have this type of skin, see the Daily Essentials Collection.

  1. I'm glad to hear the scent is light and natural... green apple as a scent can scare me a bit!

  9. You had me at "fast absorbing"! I have a pet peeve with creams/serums/etc that sit there. I need that fast absorbing action because it seems I'm always in a hurry haha

  12. Sounds alright but then when I look at the formula I don't think it's for me. My skin doesn't handle citrus and citrus-y extracts well.
