Let me start off by saying, pregnancy hormones are NO JOKE. I am currently dealing with the worst acne I’ve ever had in my life, which can be frustrating since I’m so particular about what I put in and ON my body these days.
I’ve read rave reviews about the Juice Beauty line and I can’t believe this is the first product I’m trying! As you all know, I am on a quest to clean up my beauty routine and now that I’m pregnant, skincare has been even harder since I need to avoid my usual laser treatments, retinols, vitamin A and more.
I was SO excited to discover Juice Beauty’s Green Apple Pregnancy Peel! It’s a SAFE yet potent alpha hydroxy acid peel that’s formulated without Vitamin A. There’s also a non-pregnancy green apple peel that does include the Vitamin A.
When I first applied the mask I felt a gentle warming sensation but nothing too intense. I was worried the peel wasn’t going to be effective BUT after removing the mask, my face was BABY SOFT which tells me the peel was doing it’s job of exfoliating and toning!
Now that I’ve been testing the Green Apple Peel for a little over a month, I can say that I see a visible change in appearance of the dark spots/discoloration which is an ongoing issue for me. The peel has become a staple in my beauty routine and I use it at 2-3 times per week.
My skin is definitely brighter and it helps to at least tame the inevitable hormonal breakouts. I am SUPER impressed with this pregnancy safe peel and I’ll definitely be giving the non-pregnancy Green Apple Peel a try once I’m done breastfeeding.
I’d LOVE to know: what are some of your favorite, CLEAN masks!?
