Juice Beauty - On Sale!!

I normally don't go overboard telling people to buy stuff, but I actually really like this company and their products, so I thought I'd share some info and a sale coupon code for anyone who might be interested. If you don't like hearing about products, feel free to skip this post!

I came across Juice Beauty by fluke when I got a free sample of their Oil-Free Moisturizer with a Sephora purchase. I immediately loved how it smelled and liked what I read on the label, but as I've got sensitive skin and have spent years finding products that work for me, I didn't try it right away. Eventually the yummy scent won me over and I gave it a try. And immediately fell in love with it.

Since then I've learned a bit about the company. They use 100% certified organic juice as the base for their products, making them 98% organic. And they don't contain parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances. Since skin is the largest organ in the human body and 60% of whatever we put on it gets absorbed quickly into the body, this is a huge plus!

As if all that wasn't enough, they are also listed on the PETA website as a cruelty-free company, meaning that they do not test their products on animals. This issue has been close to my heart since I was in my early teens, and I always make an effort to support companies that do not harm animals just to make us look pretty.

Of course anything this good comes at a price - one that often makes them much harder on the budget than they are on the skin! Which is why I was super excited to discover their friends and family sale which will give you 25% off and free shipping (even to Canada!) until May 31st. Just enter coupon code FF2011 upon checkout.

If you're not familiar with the brand, here are some of my favourites to get you started:

 Oil-Free Moisturizer 
This was the first thing I ever tried and an excellent introduction to the brand. It has a lovely citrus scent with just a hint of sweetness that I find gorgeous. It spreads easily and a little goes a very long way - but it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave any oily residue - great for those of us who don't like the feel of heavy cream or makeup on our skin!

Green Apple SPF 20 Antioxidant Body Moisturizer
 With summer fast approaching, it's time to start thinking about how to protect ourselves from harmful UV rays without forgoing everything that makes summer fun. This is the answer. It has SPF 20, making it good for everyday protection from casual sun exposure, and your new summer favourite! It does double duty as a moisturizer so it will keep your skin super soft at the same time. And it doesn't leave any white residue or have an obnoxious sunscreen smell. If you get just one product in the sale, this should be it!

SPF 8 Lip Moisturizer
Don't forget those lovely lips when you're heading out into the sun! These lip moisturizers have a great smell and taste, go on without leaving any residue and come in clear as well as two subtle tints for when you want a little more colour! Sold in a package of three and individually.

  And I’ve heard really good things about these:
 Green Apple Peel Sensitive
I haven't tried this one yet, but it's sitting in my bathroom, so I will soon! It is formulated with anti-oxidants and will gently exfoliate while smoothing out fine lines and reducing breakouts. Apparently. Also comes in full strength for those with more hardy skin types.

SPF 30 Mineral Sheer Moisturizer 
More than any other body part, your face is exposed to even the most diffused sunlight every single minute that you're outdoors. In the summer, this is likely to be a lot of minutes. From what I've ready this is light enough to wear instead of daytime moisturizer but will give you SPF 30 protection so you don't have to slather heavy sunblock on your face. Sounds like a good idea to me!

Go and check them out while they've got they're sale on - also check out their "kits" if you want to try smaller sizes of a variety of products before committing to anything full sized!
