Now that I’m getting older, I like to go the extra mile with my skincare routine to ensure my skin looks clear, radiant and healthy for as long as possible. Instead of just relying on cleanser and moisturizer I like to use more potent products like serum and eye cream to give my skin an extra boost to stay plump and youthful. After finishing my Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Serum, I was hooked on serums and itching to try another good one. I received the Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Serum as gratis a while back and decided to pull it out and see how it compares to my precious Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Serum.
The Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Serum is no Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Serum by a long shot but I still like it. The Green Apple Age Defy serum is formulated with organic apple, lemon and grape to brighten dark spots and even skin as well as plump and decrease the appearance of fine lines all while offering a powerful blend of antioxidants to protect skin from free-radical damage. The formula has a lightweight gel consistency that feels a bit sticky upon application but absorbs quickly and plays well with my eye cream (Clinique All About Eyes) and my moisturizer (Derma E Vitamin E Cream).
Since I’ve been using the Green Apple Age Defy Serum I’ve noticed that my skin feels a more firm yet supple and my complexion appears to be more radiant. The only drawback I can think of is that it’s not very hydrating. Which is okay considering that the formula isn’t designed to hydrate. However, I love the fact that the Green Apple Age Defy Serum is completely organic and features a natural blend of hyaluronic acid and alpha hydroxy acids that help to gently exfoliate and smooth out my complexion without irritating my sensitive skin. The Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Serum kinda spoiled me a bit since it added an extra boost of moisture so I do prefer it over the Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Serum for that reason alone. However, I can’t deny that Juice Beauty did a bang up job with the Green Apple Age Defy Serum. It’s hard to find a good organic skincare line that actually works well and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg but Juice Beauty knocked it out of the park. I totally recommend the Green Apple Age Defy Serum to anyone struggling with dark spots, fine lines and/or an uneven complexion. It’s certainly worth a try!
