Today I have a review of one of the things that I got from my most recent Sephora mini haul – my mom gave me money to pick out some treats for my birthday so I decided to try out the Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream in the shade Natural Glow. [info in italics taken from the Juice Beauty website]
The Juice Beauty STEM CELLULAR™ CC Cream is ideal for all skin types and especially beneficial for skin showing the signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles. Available in five shades, Natural Glow, Desert Glow, Warm Glow, Sun-kissed Glow and Deep Glow, to match and enhance any skin type and color. Since Juice Beauty uses no artificial dyes, the colors are effective for skin tones ranging from very light to dark as the colors blend and adapt.
This CC cream is described as being a 12-in-1 multi-tasking product:
- Reduces appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
- Broad spectrum sun protection
- Evens skin tone
- Smoothes uneven texture
- Creates a radiant, glowing complexion
- Rich in antioxidants
- Protects with mineral SPF 30
- Ultimate moisturizer
- Skin perfecting color
- Mineral tinted coverage
- No chemical sunscreen
- Non-nano natural sunscreen
Formulated without parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances. Our products are never tested on animals.
Because I am on the pale to fair/light end of the skintone spectrum I tend to burn very easily so I absolutely need to wear sunscreen, ideally in the range of SPF20 or higher in the summer, with SPF 30 being my usual go-to.
A lot of BB / CC creams and tinted moisturizers are often too dark for me, but this one is a perfect match. It is super lightweight, yet moisturizing, and evens out my skintone, and adds radiance. It doesn’t draw attention to fine lines – thankfully!
However, the coverage is very sheer, which I really like for the summer months. But if you prefer medium to full coverage, then this is not the one for you. It does play nicely with my usual go-to concealers and powders, so I can increase the coverage if I feel I need it.
Active Ingredient: Zinc Oxide 20%
Inactive Ingredients: Aloe barbadensis (organic aloe juice/jus d’aloès bio)*, cocos nucifera (organic coconut oil/huile de noix de coco bio)*, pyrus malus (organic apple juice/jus de pomme bio)*, vitis vinifera (organic white grape juice/jus de raisin blanc bio)*, caprylic/capric triglyceride†, sorbitan stearate, ricinus communis (castor seed oil /huile de graines de ricin), polyglyceryl-10 laurate, magnesium sulfate, helianthus annuus (organic sunflower seed oil/huile de graines de tournesol bio)*, simmondsia chinensis (organic jojoba seed oil/huile de graines de jojoba bio)*, tocopherol (Vitamin E/vitamine E), magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (Vitamin C/vitamine C), sodium hyaluronate†, malus domestica (apple fruit cell culture extract/extrait de culture cellulaire de pomme), vitis vinifera (grape fruit cell extract/extrait de cellule de raisin), citrus medica limonum (lemon leaf cell extract/extrait de cellule des feuilles de citron), phenethyl alcohol, ethylhexylglycerin†, citrus reticulata (mandarin oil/huile de mandarine), citrus aurantium (petitgrain oil/huile de petit grain). May contain: iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)
Scentwise, it smells like most physical sunscreens due to the zinc oxide, but has a mild hint of citrus as well. It smells like the ingredients as opposed to smelling like a fragranced / perfumed product which I appreciate because I really dislike putting overly fragranced products on my face.
Do you have a fave sun protection BB / CC Cream, or tinted moisturizer?
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
Disclosure: Birthday gift from my mother. She’s awesome like that.
