Skincare marketing is usually dictated by a classic dichotomy: all-natural gentle organic healing vs. all-scientific new-technology active ingredient hammering. Juice Beauty’s Anti-Oxidant Serum hits the middle mark by boasting all-natural ingredients while still including the scientific goodies we love, like liposomes, peptides and collagen-rebuilding. So does it work? I bought it just so I could tell you. Aren’t I a sweetheart? (Juice Beauty also happens to be my all-time favorite skincare brand… so it may have been a teensy bit selfish. Don’t judge me.)
The serum feels good, smells amazing, and sinks in quickly. I immediately picked up the white grape scent, and I found it surprisingly refreshing. And for a serum formula, it feels light and airy, rather than like my face took an oil bath. It didn’t seem to irritate my skin as much as Philosophy’s When Hope is Not Enough facial firming serum (and as I’ve said, my skin can take a beating so I can’t imagine what the Philosophy serum does to you sensitive types). It left me feeling super soft but not greasy.
Now, for the workings: I definitely think this serum is best for the eye area. I’ve already seen an improvement in the softness and brightness of my eye area in using it for only about a week now. I’ll have to use it a bit longer to confirm, since skin can take awhile to react, but it seems like it’s doing a good job. Now, on tougher skin areas like the neck, it doesn’t seem as effective. Still, for a product that feels this good and is doing this great so far, I can’t complain.
The verdict: 10/10– that’s right, a 10 baby! It both feels good and works, and those are two things we makeup lovers can’t say about enough products.
