Juice Beauty Review

The wonderful folks at Juice Beauty sent me some of their products to try out. I was so excited when this came in the mail a few weeks ago, but I just have been going non-stop and haven’t had a moment to let my readers know what I thought! In my package was a Hydrating Mist, Cleansing Gel, a Green Apple Peel, and Green Apple Antioxidant Moisturizer. So many fun things to test out! Juice Beauty Skincare Is Up To 95% Certified Organic, which I love. I have never tested out any organic skincare products before, and was excited to see and feel the difference!
The Hydrating Mist is “A harmonic blend of certified organic, antioxidant-rich white and red grape juices, soothing aloe vera, nutrient-rich rosehip, grapeseed oil and vitamins to hydrate and balance skin’s natural moisture for a fresh complexion.” I loved it! I had been looking for a hydrating mist recently, but nothing caught my eye so I am so excited this works for me. Not only does it hydrate your face, but it also balances and tones. To use it you just lightly mist on a clean face and it wakes up your face.
The Cleansing Gel is a “refreshing blend of certified organic, antioxidant-rich cherry and lemon juices, purifying botanicals and soothing cleansers will gently remove impurities to clarify and balance, while protecting skin’s natural moisture.” Some cleansing products have left my face not feeling so great in the past, but this stuff left my face feeling fresh, cleaned and very alive! I feel like my skin has a slight glow to it from using this new gel as well! You gotta love that!
The Green Apple Peel is “designed for sensitive skin, this refining hydroxy-acid complex of certified organic apple, lemon, grape juices and raw cane sugar exfoliate for visibly improved skin tone and texture. Vitamin antioxidants and essential nutrients hydrate and nourish fresh skin for a healthy, beautiful complexion.” I get nervous with some facial masks/peels because most of them leave my face dried out but this product didn’t do that at all. There was a slight tingling sensation when first applied, but it said to expect that in the directions so I didn’t freak out. It smelled good too!
The cherry which topped my facial beauty sundae was the Green Apple Antioxidant Moisturiser. “This nutrient-rich certified organic moisturizer combines a brightening complex of organic apple, lemon and grape juices, nutrient-rich essential fatty acids, and age-defying alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10, vitamin C, peptides and DMAE to replenish, nourish and firm aging skin morning and night.” I let that soak in after my facial pampering and it was just very smooth and silky. I loved it.
Thank you Juice Beauty for this amazing opportunity to test out your products!

Is There A New Seed In Town?

I have always been a flax seed kind of girl. The flax seeds have recently become pretty main stream, making appearances in green monsters all around the blogosphere! I mix flax seeds with wheat berries in my monsters on a daily basis. But I think there may be a new seed in town, and in my monsters!

Enter the Chia Seed: mas pics 167

Chia Seeds are a powerhouse nutritional food and extremely rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. A perfect addition to my morning monsters!

I used my chia seeds in my daily green monster, but you can add them to pretty much anything! Mix Chia seeds into yogurt, sprinkle them on cereal in the morning, add to salads, or even add them to your baking. There are many ways to add chia seeds into your daily routine!

Additional facts about Chia Seeds:

  • Chia Seeds have more protein than any other nutritional grain, not to mention they are high in fiber
  • Chia Seeds are easy to digest and do not need to be ground in order to process them in our digestive system
  • Chia Seeds are absorb 10 times their weight in water, keeping the water in our system longer, keeping us hydrated, this is especially important for athletes!
  • They are Antioxidants! Potassium! Calcium! Oh My!
  • My favorite little factoid is that chia seeds prevent some of the foods we eat from being absorbed in our system, which is key to anyone dieting
  • An ounce of chia seeds contains 137 calories, and will get you four grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber – That will keep you going all day long!

    There was just a subtle difference from the seed change, but I really enjoyed it. I think the nutritional benefits of chia may be more diverse than the flax seed. I may have to do more research on that one, but I am excited for the change of seeds! Thanks ChiaSeedsDirect.com! You have made a believer out of me!

PS – Don’t forget about my Holey Donuts Giveaway!  These donuts are low cal and low fat but have FULL flavor so check it out!
