What I LIKE: It's USDA Certified organic and a wonderful serum for your skin. No harsh chemicals. In a sanitary pump rather than a pot. Nice design/packaging. My skin felt soft after using it. Fresh/clean/organic scent.
What I DISLIKE: Product in bottle doesn't last very long at all for the $36 price point. I went through this very quickly. Not a particularly oily serum, so you need a lot to cover your whole face when applying. I think it's misleading to have "moisture" in the title, but I thought it was a moisturizer at first, but it's really more of a serum to wear UNDER your moisturizer or at night (which I when I primarily used it.)
-Although my skin felt softer after using this, it didn't brighten my skin or have any special anti-aging effects like some serums do. I give it a 4 because its a good product and for the right person into organic skincare, this could be a really great product, but for me, it was just OK!

I bought this product a couple months ago and there is a little left, it does moisturize the skin but now my skin is dry in some places. I would not buy again because it cost too much, for me. I had a good experience with this organic, paraben free product, plus I didn't get a single breakout.=]

Edit on 03/16/11: Okay, so I stopped using this and the dry patches on my face almost immediately started to heal. This was definitely the culprit. I really wanted to like this, but it just didn't work for me.
This feels so good when you initially apply it, but I have more dry patches now then when I started using this. It helped clear up my skin a little, but I think it made my skin dryer in some places. I know there are some oils like tea tree oil that can dry out your skin, but this doesn't contain tee tree oil. I'm not sure which oil it is, but theres something in the ingredients that is causing my skin to dry out. This is going back to Whole Foods.

Truly great! This is the best moisturizer for my harsh Chicago winters. I was looking for something very rich and moisturizing that wouldn't break me out. This lovely smelling blend of oils sinks into skin, doesn't just sit on it. The act of massaging it into my skin makes it feel extra luxurious. The scent and concept reminds me a lot of Darphin's Purifying Balm, which I purchased once upon a time in Paris, except this of course is significantly less costly and more local (though I wouldn't object to going to Paris again!). I am prone to spots and this hasn't aggravated my skin at all, so I feel pretty safe slathering it on. It does mean my face has a sheen on it though, and I couldn't imagine this working well with makeup. So I only use it at night when no one but my pup can see. But she loves me, oily skin or not!

This is a great product but I think Juice Beauty should have put "oil" in the title as it's really a WONDERFUL treatment oil that I use on my face after I've been in air conditioning or in altitude or in the sun. My skin feels like a baby's butt after I use this product. I also soaked my hair in it the other day, washed it, and it was smooth as silk. Love the organic ingredients.

I began using this product in the fall when I decided to begin using more natural products on my skin. I have combination skin and am prone to breaking out. I was previously using Aveeno clear complexion moisturizer.
I have to say I really love this stuff. It doesn't break me out and if anything I think it has calmed my skin. I use it only at night since it is a bit rich, but my skin feels so soft, smooth and hydrated. I think it has also improved the quality of my skin - more even tone, and even reduced the look of fine lines?!
Just so you know, it appears Sephora has discontinued carrying this product. You can order it online from Juice Beauty, or for international customers you can get it from skinstore.com or naturisimo.com

I really love this! My skin is oily combo and I only use this at night because this would be too oily during the day. I found my skin to be a little dry lately so I thought this would help and it did. I used only 1 pump per application and that was more than enough for the whole face. Awesome.

I've used Rodin's Olio Lusso/Luxury Face Oil (see my other review), which at $135 for 1 oz, is comparably more expensive than this product ($36 for 1 oz). I compared the ingredient lists, and Juice Beauty's Concentrate has many of the same oils, and lacks only some of the exotic ones. As I've written in my other review, some of the exotic oils may worsen eczema and sensitive skin.
I love that Juice Beauty's product goes on as a dry-oil and sinks in relatively fast. As with all natural products, there are no immediate effects; it takes time for visible results to show. I have combo skin, and this product is great for the winter months. I've also mixed this in with my tinted moisturizer, which provides a more glowy look.
Will give more updates as the months go on.

I actually havent really tried this yet but thought it was halarious that I too, encountered the same Asian man at the sephora in the topanga mall (LA) who convinced me of it's miracle powers. He gave me a hefty sample to try and after reading the reviews I'm guessing it's worth a try!! Will keep updated. It's sold out so i might have to buy online! Yay for the asain guy. He'd be so proud.

I'm wondering if the review below is for the same product. This is a very "dry" oil that I don't find the least bit sticky. It give an almost matte affect to the skin -- when used directly after a toner. The scent dissappears quickly, but isn't even bad at all (and I'm a fragrance hater). I am no longer in love with Suki 's balancing oil since this has truly evened out my tone, sinks in fast, and goes on matte. I find this soothing. In fact, I picked this up on impulse right after I ordered the soothing serum and haven't even been tempted to open the bottle which means that this stuff is bordering on HG status. I don't want to use anything else. 36$ for one oz -- not too terrible considering the ingredients are organic. Oh, and I had to prime the pump about 80 times before it worked and now it works fine. This truly is a five star product. I love the USDA Organic line they have -- now if they'd only make a body oil as good as this. Here's what's in it:
Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Seed Oil, Borago Officinali (Borage) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil, Vinis Vitifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Botanical Extracts Of Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit, Calendula Officinalis Flower, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed, Geranium Maculatum and Helichrysum Stoechas (Everlasting) In Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Tocopherol.

I tried this product because it was organic and claimed to be softer on your skin than other serums. I am not a huge fan of this product. The smell really annoyed me and I thought the serum was too sticky.

This serum is my current skincare obsession. It makes my skin soft and luminous, sinks in great compared to other oil-based serums, and has an ahh-inducing scent thanks to geranium essential oil.
It contains 10 organic essential oils (I counted), including regenerative ones like calendula, grapeseed and everlasting (also known as immortelle). At $36, it's a significantly more affordable alternative to the $135 Rodin Olio Lusso serum that everyone is raving about.
I press just a couple drops of this into slightly damp skin at night. And add a drop of it to my Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals foundation in the morning for gorgeous luminosity. I've received many compliments on my complexion since. I took off a lippe, though, for the clear packaging -- exposure to light causes plant oils to go rancid, especially since this contains no preservatives.

This is a bit pricey but i love it! at first i wasn't sure because i saw olive oil on the label. too heavy for the face, i think. surprise! it is lighter than i thought and quickly absorbs into skin. It does a great job keeping my face moist and smooth. It smells great, very refreshing. I love geranium!

So, oddly enough I met the same small Asian man at the Sephora in LA, and again he said I was breaking out because of Hormones. He promised that this product would do the trick and that Michael Douglas bought it in bulk (10 times a visit) lol.. I tried it and wow,,,, my acne has disappeared after two nights... and the scarring is fading.... I love it!

I was in Sephora the other day looking to buy some more Clinique foundation and powder, but because apparently my skin wasn't bad enough to need foundation (and the fact that I told the lady I didn't like to wear too much makeup anyway since I'm lazy, but wanted to cover up smalls scars and shine), I got directed by the Sephora lady to an Asian man who specializes in skincare consulting. I have some scars above my upper lip that never seem to go away- tea tree oil helps it fade, but eventually I start breaking out when I go home from college, and I get little irritated and red there. Well, I asked the man about it, and he says that they aren't pimples, but caused by hormones- they flare up around the start of my menstrual cycle, and the only way I could get rid of it was by detoxifying my skin. He told me that one way to get rid of it was to use this oil nightly; by the end of a week or two, I'd have clear skin and no need of makeup (yay!). Well, I was sold because he told me a story of how leather is soaked in oil to make it supple, and how it never seems to wrinkle or crack because of it. And he told me that he uses it himself, and his skin is clear. Well, I've only used this twice in the past two days, and there are visible effects- even my roommate commented on how my skin seemed to clear up. The scars are actually fading, and I have high hopes that by the end of the week, I'll have clear, smooth skin again! This is a bit pricey- $36 a bottle, but I had a $15 off coupon so I was alright with it. I think the best time to apply this oil is at night- it melts into your skin when you rub it in, but you can still feel it. It also smells a bit funny, an herbal scent- but at the same time its soothing. This is definitely worth it! It may cost a bit, but keep in mind that its all natural- or at least 95% organic, and the amazing thing is that you can actually read the label and understand what the ingredients are. What other skincare brand is going to offer you that?

First off, this looks like a cream or gel on the Sephora website, but it's actually an oil blend. Now, I'm always a little wary of a beauty product that has "organic" stamped on it, since this is a typical greenwashing ploy to cover up synthetic and/or harmful ingredients. This stuff however seems to smack of all natural goodness. I have temperamental skin that has adult cystic acne. It seems to be caused by allergies (I finally wised up that it wasn't just a *stage*) and so I am super-careful about what I slather on it. This stuff puts my mind, and skin, at ease. My skin glows after using this stuff and my acne soothes down. My skin usually flakes too, and yet this stuff takes care of that issue as well. It costs $36 dollars at Sephora for a 1 oz. bottle, which isn’t too bad when you consider the prices of other high-potency natural oil blends. Suki Naturals Pure Facial Moisture costs $29.95 for half that amount, so this is actually a good buy. And if you've used oils before, you'll know that a little goes a long way. I like to use it at night, I wake up with skin that is less inflamed and healthier-looking. I also use it during the day sometimes, when the weather is harsh. The only issue with that is you have to wait a few minutes to let it sink in before you start applying makeup. I use BE mineral foundation (sometimes I use Alima too) over it and this moisturizer makes my skin look dewy but polished and youthful. This blend seems to be able to handle most skin conditions. You can go bug Sephora and they’ll probably give you a free sample. My only semi-issue with this stuff is that it is in a plastic bottle. It would be better for the product and the environment if it was in a glass container.
