Most Helpful Positive Review Wow!
I didn't think an Essence would do much , but I was curious. I went to ulta and tried the sample of it on the back of my hand and it didn't absorb very well. I was weary of it , but I love juice beauty so I tried it. Used it that night with a cotton pad by pressing it into my skin and OMG! The brightness and changes in the pores was amazing. I am 36 and have been in need of something that would boost my skin to the next level and i think this is it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Returning this product
A beauty consultant recommended this new beauty line. I was so excited to try out this essence. I used it twice a day, morning and night and after about the fourth day, I started to break out. I really wanted to believe in this skin care so I even went down to once a day, that didn't seem to help at it. I'm hoping they will let me return this product as it was too strong for me. I have very sensitive dry/comb skin. I didn't care for the smell either, it was pretty strong for me, but again I wanted to believe in this product so I sucked it up. So disappointing it wasn't the right fit for me!!

I did not know what to expect from this brightening essence ... but ... I really like it. It is a thick liquid that you pour/shake out of the bottle into the palm of your hand (the bottle is glass with a little plastic stopper that has a single hole in the center ... the product doesn't really pour out, you have to gently shake the bottle over your open hand and the product will drip out) then, using the fingers of your other hand, scoop the liquid and rub and press into your skin ... I would not use a cloth or cotton pad to apply this because I feel that way too much product would be lost in the cotton pad ... plus, the ingredients are so good you want them to soak into your fingertips while applying this to your face ... this brightening essence makes my skin feel very fresh and clean. I use it after cleansing but it makes my skin feel even cleaner than it was ... and ... it has moisturizing properties as well. I love it! I am so glad I took a chance on this ... I am planning to order more when the bottle is empty ... a little goes a long way ... I have been using this twice a day and the bottle is still very full! It's a great product! btw I have sensitive skin and this feels very soothing ... I actually look forward to applying it after cleansing my face ... it feels good ...
They Changed Their Formula
Siobhan from NJ
I've been using the essence for a year or 2. My skin used to really like it but this last repurchase was different. It's a darker color, thicker, smells different and burned my face. I emailed Juice Beauty and was told there was an "update" to the formula. Save your money this is wack now!
Wanted to love it, buuuut

I tried this product for about 2 weeks, couldn't quite figure out what was going on with my face! Well, it was this "brightening" essence. Ugh. Made my face look like I sprayed it with spiked silver water lol. If that makes any sense. Just a little too brightening for me I guess. It does have a little fragrance to it too, it does not last though and it isn't the best of smells. But it isn't terrible. The brightening effect just made my pores look HUGE! They already drive me nuts so I dont need anything to make them more noticeable so this product was a BIG NOOOOO for me. Other then that I did like it as an essence.

I've been dying to try out juice beauty products for a while now, during quarantine I really got into skin care and have tried many different brands, & this one immediately made a difference in my skin the next morning. My skin feels softer with no texture, and looks dewy & bright. It's been about a week using this essence every morning/night and my acne scars on my cheek already look so much more lighter and faded. New holy grail skin care product in my nightly regimen 😍
Suzi from Oregon
I was having a hard time finding an inexpensive and cruelty free essence and I found it! I really like this. I think I'm going to try a different brand after I'm done with this just because I like trying different things but I would purchase again.
Spots, be gone!
Queenofkings from Los Angeles
Best thing I've used for texture, clogged pores, and dark spots! I'm prone to large clogged pores so I was nervous to try something like this but to my surprise, it actually cleared out my whiteheads, shrank my pores, and faded my acne scars. Ive never had anything work this well for so many skin concerns - this is my first and only "holy grail" product!
Be warned though, it's made with natural plant ingredients so it's not exactly hypoallergenic - patch test first. Also it's not meant for sensitive skin because it contains citrus which is acidic. I have combo skin and on my dry areas it did sting in the beginning but once I got used to it, it actually helped with flakiness because it turns over my skin faster. I'd say if you don't have very sensitive skin, give this a try but keep your receipt just in case you have an allergy.
For the reviewer saying there's alcohol in this: it contains "Oleyl Alcohol" which is a fatty alcohol that's actually moisturizing and very good for skin. You're likely having a reaction to one of the plant ingredients :/

I put this on before moisturizing. Starts my day off great
Would buy again

I can use this everyday. Thank you for the sale.
Kelsey from Mi
I'm 27 with normal/sensitive skin. While I did see brightening with this, it burned my skin on every application.
HappySkin from Farmington, NM
I love this! I use this morning & night before moisturizer my skin just drinks it in. My skin is supple and more smooth. Overall it is a must to any beauty routine. I will continue purchasing this. :)
Love this product!
Lisa from Rome, GA
I use this 2 x everyday. It's wonderful base before moisturizer or oils. Feels light and my skin just drinks it in.
Nice addition to skincare routine
Siobhan from New Jersey
I used this product in the morning and the evening. I find that when this product isn't in my routine my skin looks much dryer and dull.
Mel from Eugene
Don't do it!
Sarah from Ohio
I love several skincare items from juice beauty. I have dryer, slightly sensitive skin and their products are just so wonderful and gentle. I truly feel clean and moisturized after using their items. Yes, they are pricy but worth it! I love their stem cellular serum, face cream, and CC cream. All of these products are so hydrating and make my skin feel so refreshed throughout the day.
Don't waste your money, another gimic
MacMelly from San Jose Ca
I saw this online from a YouTuber who claims this helped her clear her skin, I noticed same day new acne forming on my face. My skin freaked out. Total waste
Essences Are Not Supposed To Have Alcohol
Sam1204 from NY
I wanted to incorporate an essence into my routine and saw this listed on several beauty websites, so I decided to give this brand a shot. After several uses I found my skin incredibly dry, itchy, and bumpy. I read the ingredients and found it has alcohol in it. True essences are not supposed to have any alcohol in it because...it is drying. Terrible product for almost $40. I will be returning.
Nikki from Orlando, FL
I used this to help get rid of blemishes and Texture and let's just say, it transformed my skin! I paired this with their blemish clearing serum and I noticed a difference within as little as a week.
Apple bandaid flavored hydration
Dez from Colorado
This product has done wonders for me. I moved from CA to CO and suddenly the moisturizer I have loved for years wasn't cutting it anymore. I started dabbling in facial sprays and essences to add moisture. I love Tatcha The Essence but was looking for something more affordable. At first I wasn't into the smell of this because to me it smells like apple & bandaids, BUT I tried it a few times and realized it was doing a great job of adding the that much needed moisture. I apply using 3 skin method before serums & moisturizers.
I like it so far
Sarah from Chicago, IL
I have very dry skin with slight oily T-area. I press this into my skin first, then apply the JB serum, then the JB oil. My foundation applies evenly and looks great all day. I have noticed smaller pores on my nose! Also no more redness at my cheeks! (I've been using it for about 2 weeks). This essences also seems to keep my skin moisturized longer (as compared to when I was just using the serum & oil). This definitely preps your skin for the moisturizers. I do not notice a bad smell. I did have a slight breakout on my cheek after 2 days, but it cleared up the next day. But I think I applied too much in that area; so if you're acne prone, just avoid sensitive areas.
Bad smell, good product
Meow from Michigan
This product smells bad. Luckily, the odor is short-lived. It's otherwise ok - applies nicely and my complexion looks dewy
JG from Dallas, TX
Really like this product! It has not broken me out and I have very acne prone skin. It is light and hydrating! I can apply this alone when I'm in a rush and my skin is moisturized! It has taken away any redness I had and works well with my other products. Looking forward to see it continually improve my skin tone.
Dryed my skin out
Avi from San Diego
I wanted to like this product but it dried out my skin. I was told by the rep working in the store that its suppose to have antioxidants in it. I used it for 2 weeks and had drying skin and caused me to breakout. I use the juice cleanser which I like a lot. I don't recommend adding this to your skin care routine

Before moisturizing works well
Georgia Girl from Midwest
does everything it says it will. noticed a difference within 2 days. plus my face smells like a fruit loop. love it
So far it does nothing
Jules from Redlands
This was recommended as a way to minimize pores. All it seems to do is dry out my skin. Not impressed.
