You survived the Holidays.Â We all know that even though the Holidays can be a great time of year,Â spending timeÂ with our loved ones, all those amazing treats (peppermint bark anyone?), dancing the night away on New Year’s Eve…they can also be the source ofÂ an insane amount of stress.Â Â There’s theÂ obsessing over the perfect gift for your very particular sister (normally a gift certificate would suffice, but she did help you put up with “that thing” and said she’d keep quiet about it), battling derangedÂ last minute shoppers for that parking spot (that I know you saw me waiting for and my blinker’s on, so don’t try to sneakÂ in or it’s WAR), planning the perfect Christmas dinner menu (did they say they are or were vegans…or is it vegetarians…and what’s the difference again…), being stuck at the airport for days (and of course it’s the one time you didn’t bring a change of clothes in your carry on) and the list goes on. And this year you handled all of that stressÂ with more grace thanÂ Â Kate Middleton during her engagement announcement to Prince William. There were absolutely no minor or major breakdowns, but breakouts on the other hand…
During this Holiday season my skin decided to have it’s 15+ minute in the spotlight. Combined with all of the other stressors, my skin freaking out freaked me out even more, which in turn freaked my skin out and the vicious cycle continued.Â I got desperate and started trying EVERYTHING.Â I’m sure assaulting my face with a different product on a daily basis did not help the situation any.Â On the verge of another mini freak out over my face, I went online and started reading up on every acne treatment solution….there are A LOT.Â In an effort to avoid stressing out over which product to choose, I just made the decision to go with the most cost effective, just in case it didn’t work for me.Â And this is how I started my now love affair with the Juice Beauty Organics To Clear Skin kit.
The kit includes a clarifying cleansing gel, exfoliating green apple peel (for sensitive skin), replenishing blemish clearing serum, lightweight oil-free moisturizer and a bonus eco-bamboo headband.Â It promised that the 30 day supply of products would be “the perfect organic solution to clear, healthy skin with four simple steps” and for me it most definitley has been.Â I was actually a bit hesitant at first about how well the clarifying cleansing gel would clean my skin (since for me if I don’t see a lather it ain’t clean!) but it did an amazing job.Â My skin has been blemish free for the past few weeks (I ordered the kit right after Thanksgiving and have been using it since.) Also, after I use the mask (sometimes I sleep with it), my skin absolutely glows.
The only complaint I have is that my skin is not sensitive so I feel as if the green apple peel is not doing as much for my skin as it could be if it were full strength, also the moisturizer does not contain any SPF so I have to use an SPF over it, but the results are well worth the extra application.Â All of the products in the kit have been surprisingly gentle on my skin (I say surprisingly because I always expect acne treatments to smell and feel like chemicals.)
I know that saying “I resolve to be stress free in 2011” is a bit of stretch for most of us, but hopefully resolving not to stress out over acne this year is a resolution we can actually keep if this kit continues to do as promised….but so far so good!
