Bright and Glowing Skin | Juva Skincare

Bright and glowy skin is the goal at the moment. We all want our skin to look bright and healthy. That lit within glow, without all the effort. Once upon a time it was only something you could get by visiting a salon and having a facial. Now there are so many at home products that claim to give you exactly that - bright and glowing skin. 

Introducing Juva Skincare. I was introduced to Juva recently on Instagram. I had not heard of this brand before the beginning of this year, but it's made it's way into my skincare routine. Let me tell you a little bit about them. Juva Skincare was founded with the mission to provide skincare solutions inspired by nature and driven by science.Their products are made from gentle ingredients, refined by scientifically-proven processes, to deliver highly effective and restorative skincare solutions to our customers. These products allow you to care for your skin with minimal effort, giving you more flexibility and time to enjoy your life.
Juva Skincare collection incorporates a perfect ratio of Fullerene, which is 172 times more effective in antioxidant ability than vitamin C and can stabilize your skin gently and effectively. Juva Skincare collection contains 3 products including Brightening Enhancer, Brightening Essence and Brightening Lotion and are designed for the essential steps for any skincare routine. You can either use these three products by themselves as a total routine, or include them in your routine to help strengthen skin for absorption. I have been using these in conjunction with routine and have been blown away by the results.

Brightening Enhancer* // $110

This salon-grade rejuvenating elixir is rich in fullerene that alleviates facial complications at their roots and restores your skin to a natural healthy radiant glow.

The Brightening Enhancer is designed to be used after cleansing your skin. It comes in the form of a mist, and I think of it a bit like a toner. It's a lightweight product that can be quickly absorbed into the skin and also helps to enhance the absorption of the products that follow. All ingredients are carefully selected to be the most mild and gentle to your skin, which makes our Brightening Enhancer suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Those of you who have been following my blog for a while will know that I am not the biggest fan of a mist. I have never really seen that benefit or found one that works. HOWEVER, mists are growing on me, particularly with the warmer weather and I have actually been really enjoying this face mist. I do have to say that I have noticed that when I use this I feel like my serums absorb into my skin faster and it has been leaving my skin feeling hydrated as well. At the price point, it is the priciest mist I have used and while I do have to say it is better then the mists I have used previously, I don't know that I would repurchase it.

Brightening Essence* // $102

Juva Skincare’s best seller, the Brightening Essence is restorative serum contains a highly concentrated and advanced formula not seen in other products currently on the market. It has a refreshing texture that is perfectly blended with high concentrates of fullerene that penetrates the deep into your to start rejuvenating from within and natural moisturizing actives that restore water on the surface keeping your skin hydrated and plump at the same time.

Out of the three, I think this is my absolute favourite. They come in small glass tubes and you attach a rubber top to be able to get the product out (it felt very cool and high-tec to remove the lid and attach the rubber nozzle). I have been mixing this in with another serum (which I recently ran out of, so I'm now using it by itself) and have been really impressed with the results. Each vial is meant to last about two weeks, but I have been on the same vial for about a month now. Then again I have been mixing it and therefore using a little bit less. I apply a couple of drops to my whole face and let it absorb (which it does really quickly) before following with the lotion.

I had a moment looking in the mirror the other day and I was shocked. I remember at the end of last year looking in the mirror was my least favourite thing to do. I have found some products to help with my acne and then I wanted to try these out to see if they could further improve my skin. When I was looking in the mirror recently I was shocked. My skin actually looked glowy and clear. It is the first moment I have looked in the mirror and actually wanted to keep looking. Mr TLOL also made a comment the other day out of the blue, lying in bed, telling me that my skin was looking really good! The only change I've really made to my routine is adding this in. While they are pricey little vials, I am going to be devastated when I run out of them, because of the huge improvement they've made in my skin. If you are looking for something to give your skin that little extra boost, I would definitely recommend considering these. 

This oil-control hydrating lotion is a must-have for every skin type. The Brightening Lotion has a light texture that absorbs and easily into your skin. This fast-absorbing formula, load with sunflower seed oil, shea butter, glycerin, and fullerene, delivers the long-lasting hydration that your skin needs, and oil-controlling antioxidants that reduces excess shine on your skin for a healthier-looking complexion all day long. It helps you turn back the clock with powerful anti-aging properties and whitening.

Now there is a couple of ways you could use this. You could use it as a moisturiser, applying it straight after the essence and just leaving that as your final step in your routine. If you have drier skin you might like to use this and then follow with another moisturiser to give your skin a little bit more hydration. I have done a mixture of both while using this. I really like it as both and in summer it works extremely well as a moisturiser. 

It is a really lightweight moisturiser that absorbs into your skin easily. Your skin is left looking hydrated and glowy, but you don't get that oily or sticky residue afterwards. Basically it does everything I want my moisturiser to do. I can't really fault it. It's just a really good lotion and definitely helps to enhance the brightening that you are getting from the Enhancer and Essence.

Overall I am super impressed with these three little goodies. I didn't really have any expectations when these rocked up. I thought they be another brand that I used a few times and then stashed away at the back of my drawer. I have fallen in love with them though, especially the Essence, which I am going to have to restock on soon. You can also get them in a set for $293. However, you're in for a treat.
