First off, don’t make the mistake that I did, which was to confuse Juice Beauty with Juice Organics, another brand with a similar name and packaging. Juice Beauty is much more of a powerhouse than Juice Organics. The respective prices reflect the difference in ingredients and effectiveness, but you get what you pay for. That being said, Juice Beauty isn’t that expensive as far as quality brands go.

TIA kindly gave me a chance to review the Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum. I rarely like a product without reservations (“good at this but not at that”; “this is good, except…”). In this case, however, I love the Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum ($38) without qualifications. Let me count the ways.

The bottle is a generous, which means I don’t have to focus my bleary eyes to squeeze out precious, sesame-seed-size drops while wondering if I’m using enough. I apply it generously, and feel generous with myself. The applicator is a dropper, so I can keep the contents clean, see how much is left, and get every drop out of the bottle. The bottle is glass, so I keep it in a cabinet away from direct light.

It gets better. I’m used to using three creams on my face: eye cream (YBF Refresh, $80), oil-absorbing lotion (YBF Balance, $45) on my nose, and moisturizer for the rest of the face and neck. The Antioxidant Serum is one size fits all. It can be used around the eyes, so I don’t even need a separate eye cream. It is nongreasy and hydrating, so I can use it all over my face, including the oily T-zone. It absorbs quickly but leaves my skin feeling pleasantly “prepped.” One product - and I’m ready for sunscreen. My days are long and nights are short, and at 51, I don’t always have the energy and wherewithal to do the full-face deal. Skincare doesn’t get any easier than this.

The serum is very refreshing and soothing. It has a thick, substantial feel that makes it easy to apply. My skin looks pleased. However, I think applying antioxidants is similar to taking oral antioxidants: the real value is preventing further oxidative damage rather than reversing existing damage. Which reminds me, I should go take my vitamins now. You should too.

    Many salons offer a vitamin C facial with LED. My guess is that I don't see why you couldn't use vitamin C with LED. Vitamin C - unless stabilized - degrades in light, but LED is not UV light.

    Thanks for those replies. I just thought of using this antioxidant as it might work out a bit cheaper than the YBF which I do use and like but doesn't seem to last very long.

    Sorry one more question. Can you use vit c with led, or should that be avoided? Many thanks.

    I'm not sure that LED equates with UV. On the contrary, I found a study that says that LED reduces photosensitivity:

    I think that Replenish is more of a heavy hitter. But for use with LED, I'd always opt for a simple formula such as YBF's Antioxidant Concentrates or YBF's Private Reserve.

    I think products containing vitA, such as this serum, are contraindicated to be used with LED treatment d/t increased photosensitivity.

    between JB AOX serum and Osmosis Replenish AOX serum - which one is a "heavy hitter"?
    Thank you!

    Could this be used with my sirius aurora LED? Many thanks
