Revisiting Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

This winter has really proven to be incredibly drying for my hair and skin, and I have had to continually adjust my skincare and haircare picks to find, and maintain, an equilibrium. The need for what feels like excessive added moisture is a little odd for my normal/combination skin, but as the cold weather persists I have found numerous new and tried and true products that are definitely working wonders on my seasonally dry skin.

With that in mind, I thought that I would revisit Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer–a moisturizer that I initially thought that I would like, but that I ended up loving. I thought that this lightweight moisturizer would not provide me with the level of moisture and hydration that I seek this time of the year, but instead it has repeatedly proven to be perfect for my skin during the winter months. Not only does it provide my skin with ample moisture and hydration, but in fact this potent antioxidant-rich, anti-aging cream does 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.

  1. I love that this lightweight moisturizer has AHAs and BHAs in the formula!

    1. Me too, Allison. The formula is lightweight, it melts into the skin and it leaves skin hydrated and luminous. I really like it a lot!

  2. My skin is so. dry. this winter. This cream sounds as if it could be a big help! I love all of the natural, active ingredients in the formula.

    1. My skin os as well, and for normal/combination skin it is really unsettling to have my skin so dry and reactive to the cold weather outside and the heated interior spaces. This cream is definitely helping my skin find some added moisture! The ingredients are really impressive and effective.

  3. That sounds like a great night cream!

    1. I like to use it day and night, but it is a nice lightweight night cream as well!

  4. This sounds wonderful, I wish it had SPF!

    1. It is wonderful! The lack of an SPF doesn't bother me since I always use a high SPF in addition to my skincare products.

  5. I actually had some bad reactions to Juice Beauty back in the day but it's been awhile. Hopefully it would be fine now!

    1. I wonder if it was an allergic reaction to particular ingredients? I definitely would try to get samples before buying, if I were you.
