juice beauty green apple peel review

This week's installment of Mask Monday is actually not a mask, it is a peel!  I love a good peel just as much as I love a good mask | I cannot envision myself going to a dermatologist for a professional peel...Those peels look so unnecessarily harsh on the skin.  Yes the final result is probably baby smooth skin, but just thought of having to go through the raw and painful in between is enough to point me in another direction.  I remember when my mom had a peel done.  We went out to dinner for my sister-in-law's birthday; it wasn't pretty!

My peel of choice is the Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel.  This peel comes in three options: full strength, sensitive, and pregnancy.  I don't have sensitive skin and I'm not pregnant, nursing, or trying to get pregnant so I opt for the full strength version, Kudos to Juice Beauty for really providing options for everyone looking to shed a few dead skin cells and show off some fresh new epidermis!

This peel contains some amazing ingredients that you skin will just soak up and love |

Organic apple juice - rich in vitamins A, B, & C, along with antioxidants
Organic lemon juice - high Vitamin C content helps tone the skin, fight acne, and rebuild collagen, plus contains antimicrobial and astringent properties
Organic Aloe juice - anti-inflammatory properties, stimulates the growth of new skin cells, helps improve skin's natural firmness and helps keep the skin hydrated
Vitamins A, C & E - nourishment & moisturization, helps blur the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
Organic sunflower seed oil - contains antioxidants that protect elastic and collagen in the skin
Organic grape seed extract - packed with antioxidants and helps fight free radicals

Alpha hydroxy acids are present due to the malic acid from the green apples, glycolic, and lactic acids.

Beta hydroxy acid is present due to the salicylic acid from willow bark.


The directions for the peel are pretty simple: apply an even layer on the face & neck and allow to work its magic for 10 minutes.  Then just rinse off with warm water.

Results: Super soft skin!  I always feel like a weekly treatment helps to reset my skin's tone and texture from the weekly grind.  The peel even at full strength was not irritating and there was no redness, probably due to the aloe, vitamins and oils.  It removes that slightly gritty feeling the skin gets due to dead skin cells that are still seating on the epidermis.  I can definitely say that me skin felt more supple and bright once I rinsed it off J
