item of the day: juice beauty

okay, i know i don't normally post about beauty products.....the truth is, i don't use many of them. my skin is crazy sensitive and not terribly prone to anything damaging (knock on wood), which means i basically subsist on cetaphil.

but i recently read something about a product called 'antioxidant serum' by juice beauty. and for some reason, it intrigued me enough that i decided i had to try it.

and the craziest thing - i absolutely love it!

now, i'm not normally one to go in for organics, but i'm pretty impressed. according to sephora, this stuff:

....addresses the signs of stress and environmental damage on the skin by helping to protect and rebuild collagen, regenerate skin cells and rehydrate-leaving skin healthy, revitalized, and glowing. Delicate, certified organic oils regenerate and nourish with essential vitamins and minerals; nettle purifies and tones; green tea extract and vitamins A and E liposomes fight free radicals, while essential oils of Bulgarian rose and rosewood inspire love, peace, and serenity.

i don't know about that last bit, but the thing i love about it is that it's probably the first time in my life that i've used a skin product and actually noticed that it was doing something. my skin is definitely glowier than normal, at least, and it just feels happier than usual. now if only it could magically reverse the aging process, i'd be hooked for life.

if you're intrigued, you can buy it here for $45 (another thing i love about it - no $200 miracle cures for me, thank you), or i also saw this cute little travel set that would be a great way to try out more of their products, at a very reasonable $29.
