Juice Beauty Nutrient Moisturizer Review

 Juice Beauty is an organic skincare brand that I was first introduced to over the the summer when I received a sample of their Green Apple SPF 15 Moisturizer in a MyGlam bag. I was a little put off by that moisturizer, but intrigued by the concept of the brand, so I'm back with a different moisturizer to try. Juice Beauty's Nutrient Moisturizer is a "nutrient rich moisturizer that hydrates and replenishes with calming botanicals, fatty acid-rich plant oils, and vitamin antioxidants for ageless, healthy skin. Juice Beauty's Nutrient Moisturizer is designed for all skin types and is especially beneficial for normal, dry, and mature skin." This moisturizer doesn't contain any SPF, so I've been using it at night. Like most Juice Beauty products, their Nutrient Moisturizer contains lots of organic, natural ingredients. The full size of the Nutrient Moisturizer contaisn 2fl oz (60ml) and retails for $36. I have a .5fl oz (15 ml) sample that I got in the Organics to Go kit, which I bought at Ulta for $29. Juice Beauty does not test on animals and are a 100% vegetarian brand, they're currently working on becoming vegan. Juice Beauty products are made in America. Juice Beauty can be bought through the brand's website, at Ulta, and some spas and Whole Foods.

 As with all Juice Beauty products the Nutrient Moisturizer has simple but attractive packaging. My sample of the product comes in a white squeeze tube with the Juice Beauty logo and product name on the front. The back of the tube offers a product description and a full ingredient list. The full size of Juice Beauty's Nutrient Moisturizer comes in a jar as opposed to a tube, which I don't prefer. We all know that I want EVERYTHING to come in a squeeze tube. Anyway, informative and attractive packaging, good job Juice Beauty.
 I found Juice Beauty's Green Apple moisturizer too thick, it sat on the skin for quite a while and left a white cast to my skin. I really hoped that their Nutrient Moisturizer wouldn't perform the same way, but unfortunately it does. Juice Beauty's Nutrient Moisturizer is pretty think, I tend to dilute it with a drop or two of Josie Maran's Argan Oil, which not only thins it out, but also adds additional moisturizer. This moisturizer needs to be really worked into the skin, or else it will sit on top of the skin for several minutes. I don't find the Nutrient Moisturizer to be anything special t all, it isn't even all that moisturizing, its merely sufficient. Juice Beauty says its ideal for dry, mature, and normal skin, but I have normal skin and this stuff barely gives me enough moisture. I'd feel kinda bad for those with dry skin who turned to Juice Beauty's Nutrient Moisturizer looking for something deeply nourishing and intensely moisturizing. I will say that this moisturizer is non-greasy and seems to be quite gentle on the skin. Its fragrance free and has a very mild, natural scent.
I'm not pleased with Juice Beauty's Nutrient Moisturizer. I've been using it as my night time moisturizer and I feel like its only decent. I want something a little more moisturizing for night time. Even as a day time moisturizer, I don't think it would cut it. Juice Beauty's Nutrient Moisturizer takes forever to sink in, I don't got time for that when I'm starting my day. From what I've tried, I feel like Juice Beauty can't nail their moisturizer formulas, they're too thick and not very effective. I don't recommend Juice Beauty's Nutrient Moisturizer, you can find much better for moisturizers for much less, even from other natural/organic brands.
