I was recommended this kit by one of the Ulta employees while actually looking for something to help combat my dry skin. I flippantly mentioned how I deal with acne and she immediately took me to this brand. She showed me pictures of her own skin prior to using it and I was pretty impressed, so I decided to get the trial pack and give it a try.
I deal with hormonal acne and for whatever reason the last year it had been flailing up like crazy. By the end of my first week using it, I could already tell a difference. The acne was minimizing, but beyond that my dryness was starting to clear up and I no longer struggled with those annoying flaky patches.
By the end of my first three weeks, my skin was the clearest it had been in so long. It was smooth and hydrated (with no other additional products to assist beyond the occasional nighttime plant squalene for an extra boost), my scars were fading, my texture was evening out, and my acne was SIGNIFICANTLY reduced. That's not to say that I still didn't have the occasional period pimple pop up, but it went away within a couple of days and never aggravated my skin the way my pimples used to.
Is this a perfect product? No. The packaging is finicky and you have to make sure to handle it properly or else you may spill it easily. I don't look like an Instagram filter, like so many products try to make you believe you'll look like. But for the first time in a year, my skin looks happy and it's healing. It's hydrated, the rogue pimple always disappears quickly, my redness has reduced, and my texture has improved. Whether this is a long term use or not, I have no clue. But I am using it now and I love it, so I'll be sticking with it.
This product was recommended by one of the amazing employees at Ulta. However, this line was really disappointing for me. I do not have severe acne, I get whiteheads/blackheads and small bumps on my face. This did absolutely nothing to help clear my face. I did use as directed and waited longer than 6 weeks for results (I know good things take time) but I am disappointed because as amazing as these products seem and have been reviewed, I did not see any changes despite using the product for over 2.5 months. I know everybody's skin is different and reacts differently to products, but consider saving money from buying random skincare to visit a dermatologist.
Either way I'm glad to hear it worked for some of y'all! I appreciate the amazing staff at ulta and their amazing recommendations regardless < 3

I was/am dealing with hormonal acne after weaning my baby. Lots of ugly little effers all along my jawline, chin and upper neck especially. But really, my whole face could use some help. The extra fun part is I'm almost 40 with very sensitive skin, so aging/sensitive/acne covered skin. I've got it going on!
Anyway - It's only been 2 weeks, but I think I'm seeing a difference. My skin texture is better, with fewer blackheads and clogged pores. I've had fewer little white heads pop up I think my blackheads are getting a little less intense. I did just get a big new zit on my chin this morning, but it's early.
Oh, and if you care more about having a specific texture or smell than you do have natural ingredients for your face care, just buy something else. As other folks have said, this stuff is kinda thin. But I'm betting that's bc they didn't put weird stuff in it to thicken it. It's easy enough to put on, smells just fine and is natural. Perfect!
Oily mess no longer from Phoenix, AZ
I have really oily skin naturally. I moved to Arizona last year and have been needing more moisture however most moisturizers cause me to be an oily mess by the end of the day. Juice Beauty's oil free moisturizer has been perfect for my skin. It feels soft and moisturized but lightweight. And by the end of the day my skin is just normal with minimal oil in my t-zone. Love it and def recommend! My only con is the packaging! The caps broke on all my tubes :(

I had a hormonal acne flair up. I needed something to calm my skin. This really worked. The down side is it does not smell good, kind of like mildew. I wondered if what i purchased had gone bad, but I noticed an huge improvement in my skin and it started healing my 6 blemishes over night.

Read the reviews before purchasing this item. Bought it, used it once and returned it the following day. The mask was not properly sealed and the bottle was not completely full. The cleanser smelled like hair die and the lid broke off immediately after the first use!! It also irritated my skin! Needless to say I will never purchase this item again.

At first I was skeptical bc my face was so broken out. Then I began using this my face would tingle but I kept trying it and now a week later my face has actually cleared up. The products are a little watery so be mindful when opening.

I've only been using this kit for a week and my face has never looked this good! My pores have shrinked! It's just full on amazing!
hannah from southern ca
The lady at Ulta highly recommended this product to me because of my acne-prone skin. I didn't really see any noticeable changes to my skin after using these products. The cleanser is decent, but the gross smell ruined it for me. Also the tube-shaped packaging was not well thought out, because the cleanser and the serum always leaked and made a mess. I would not buy this again.

Made my face extremely oily
DisappointedK from Mooresville, NC
One of the Ulta employees recommended me to try this kit when he saw me reaching for the Proactive kit. Usually their recommendations have been spot on but this was an unfortunate fail. The cleanser was mediocre at best, the mask was a waste, and the spot corrector made my face incredibly oily…crazy oily. I would wake up with a thick layer of grease and it would come through my makeup as well. If I hadn't thrown the box away, I would have taken back for a full refund.

For the last year, I've had horrible cystic acne along my jawline, cheeks, & chin. I'm actually embarrassed to admit how much money I've spent trying to find skincare products that would help. I did the skin analysis test & the blemish cleanser came up as the recommended one to use. After doing some research & checking the ingredients on cosDNA, I decided to give this trial kit a try. I am SO GLAD I did 😭 I've only been using it for a few days & my skin is finally improving! I use it twice daily - morning & night, but using the bamboo mask once a week. I have combo/oily skin & honestly it's controlling my oiliness too! 15/10 recommend & I'll definitely be buying the full size products when these run out!

I have nothing else to say I've spent too much money on products when this was my solution all along! 😭🙌🏼 buy! You won't regret it! The smell isn't too harsh and my skin looks so much better now !
Heaven from Indianapolis IN
I use this product in the morning and at night. I recently got off birth control and began having really bad hormonal acne. It's been two days and it's already helped! The bamboo pore refining mask worked instantly!

I got the smaller "trial" version of these products because I've heard great things about them, but I didn't know if it would work well with my sensitive skin or not. However, I was happily surprised! I've been looking for more natural products since having skin cancer a few years back, and these are amazing! This box comes with the cleanser, serum, moisturizer, face mask, and a wash cloth. The cleanser, toner serum, and moisturizer made my face so soft (not greasy) compared to other products I've tried. I plan on purchasing the full versions when I run out!

We went to Ulta to get something to help my skin with some maskne. We couldn't find what we were looking for so we went to an employee for some help. She said that they didn't carry what we were looking for, but directed us towards Juice Beauty instead. First off, the towel is amazing and super soft. I noticed my face was a little less red, which was a plus. After using it awhile, it started to give me more acne though. Also the cleansers tube broke after a week or so. It was super drying, and my favorite products were the mask and towel. I wouldn't recommend this product to someone, but I would recommend getting the full size mask.

Bad smell for moisturizer. Didn't work well with my skin. Returned.
Karrie from Mean hi Cordova, CA
I have oily, acne prone skin, with enlarged pores. I have only used the product for about a week know, but I felt an instant change in my skin from the very first use. After a week my skin looks and feels much smoother and more hydrated. So far my skin is loving these organic ingredients. I can't way to see the improvement from prolonged use. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed!
Daughtet from SC

Rebecca from FL
I went to Ulta looking for a face mask to help clear up blackheads in my t zone and the Ulta worker convinced me to give this brand and kit a try. I'm so happy I did. I've been using this kit for about 3 weeks now and have noticed a huge difference in my skin. My blackheads are so much better controlled using this kit. I use it AM and PM and the mask on Sundays and Wednesdays. I also like to use an exfoliating scrub before I do the mask too. I'm so glad the Ulta worker convinced me to purchase this. I'll definitely buy the full size products when I run out of the kit. Only downside is no SPF in the moisturizer.
jubes from new york
kind of surprised about this product ive been using since last Monday and my skin defiantly is not acting up. i think it cleared my skin too a little but i don't have bad skin to begin with. its just sticky the moisturizer in a weird way then it goes away though. i can still use this before makeup . i like this set a lot !!!!!
