Juice Beauty

Birchbox Breakdown

Unless you won the genetic lottery, chances are you’ll be battling occasional pimples long into adulthood. Whenever you feel blemishes emerging, strike back with this organic fruit acid-based serum. Not only does it unclog your pores, but it also lightens scars, sunspots, and any other discoloration.

How it Works

This organic formula is a vast improvement over your run-of-the-mill drugstore acne products, which can irritate your skin with drying benzyl peroxide, petroleum glycols, artificial dyes, and fragrances. The key ingredient is a natural dose of salicylic acid, derived from willow bark, which purifies pores and shrinks even the fiercest pimples. Other actives include brightening Vitamin C, CoQ10 and organic fruit acids. To top it off, aloe, which soothes irritation; detoxifying dandelion leaf, lemon balm leaf, and sage leaf extracts are also in this serum.

How to Use

Morning and night smooth a thin layer of the serum all over your face to fade scarring and prevent breakouts. You can also use it as a targeted spot treatment on existing zits.

Super effective

I have been really impressed with the results from regular use of this serum. The formula is very light and a little goes a long way. But after 30 days of regular use, I have noticed my complexion appears smoother, brighter and I experience fewer breakouts. I even got the smaller size so I can take it with me for travel.

Okay

I like that it absorbs quickly and doesn't dry out my skin, but after a few weeks, it doesn't seem to be doing much for my acne.

Maybe better for teen blemishes/acne?
Purchased

Being in my mid 20's and still dealing with acne is extremely frustrating. I decided to give this a try based on the reviews, but really did not notice a difference at all. On top of not really being effective for me, its expensive. I had high hopes and was pretty bummed to see this didn't help at all with my blemishes. I did not feel that any of the claims this product made, worked for me. No change in pores, scars/discoloration, or even in the blemish itsself. I don't have horrible acne, but it is constant. This might work better for teen acne/blemishes, people with just the very occasional breakout, but not for chronic sufferers.

Worth it
Purchased

I was initially skeptical but was so impressed with the sample that I bought the full size. If I feel a pimple coming I put this on at night and in the morning and it really does clear it up. It's gentle and non-drying. Totally recommend it.

Great for combination skin!
Purchased

I have combination skin and it can be quite sensitive. Lately, I have been breaking out with lovely adult acne, mainly due to stress and lack of sleep. I have tried other products that work, but dry out my skin so badly that I can't continue to use them. This serum works great and it is very gentle! It definitely handles acne well (and I've noticed less) and I think it is reducing the appearance of acne scars. I have been using morning and nights for a few weeks and have had no problems with dry skin.

Wish I had better results
Purchased

I had a sample of one of the other Juice Beauty serums that I loved - it cleared up my skin and made it look really great - but it was more focused on anti-aging, and since I have more issues with breakouts than wrinkles, I decided to try this one. It's not bad, but I don't really see much of a difference after using it for about a month. I'll finish off the bottle since I don't want to waste it, but I wouldn't get it again.

Great product!

My acne prone skin is very sensitive so I have be careful about what I use. My feels a little tight and red after I use this product but if I follow immediately with moisturizer everything calms down,

great results
Purchased

I have been using this twice a day for about a week and have already started to notice results. I have oily skin that is prone to breakouts and I love that this is helping my complexion without drying my skin out. It goes on really smoothly and I have had no problems wearing it under makeup. Definitely hooked on this product!

Helped with keeping skin feeling clean and refreshed. Did not see point in using this product due to not having breakouts at the time

Have they changed the formula?
Purchased

I first purchased this product more than a year ago and I loved how effective it seemed to be at tightening my pores and clearing blemishes. I finally ran out, and reordered the product and it doesn't seem to have the same punch. I know they changed the packaging slightly, but I'm wondering if perhaps the company changed the formula, too. I don't know that I will purchase again.
