Bling Skin

Beauty | 21.1.2015 | Katja Kokko


Juice Beauty has done it again! I’d just been wondering how no one had created a mild, leave-on AHA fluid that could be worn over night; I then went on Naturelle to check something completely unrelated, only to come face to face with a package of brightening bamboo pads with fruit acids. A few clicks and voila – my wishes had come true.

I first found Juice Beauty while manically zipping about the interwebs, trying to see if there was a natural cosmetics brand out there whose products were all base on fruit acids. I finally found the answer in a Finnish online store – though the brand is in fact American.

In my mad passion for all things Tata, I have almost forgotten about Juice Beauty; these pads serve as a nice reminder. The pads are made out of bamboo, as I said, and contain some very mild fruit acids (apple extract, citrus extracts, sugar cane extract), brightening red algae, and vitamin B3. After applying your evening toner, wipe your face with the pad, and then apply your serums and oils as usual. You’ll wake up with BLING skin. Or if you look in the mirror two hours later – BLING skin.

The pads brighten the skin and lighten hyper-pigmentation (and are excellent for treating those areas specifically), smoothing out small lines, as well as the surface of the skin. Fruit acid peels are normally unsuited for sensitive skin, but mild versions don’t have to be. I gave a few of these pads to a friend with sensitive skin to try out, and she had no adverse reactions to them. A great insta-bling product for those of you who can’t use fruit acid peels, in other words!
