Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum

RATING (out of 5 stars): 1 star

COST: $29

THE SKINNY: How could you not be lured by this brand and this product, which promises an organic (meaning fruit acid and aloe), quick-acting way to fight occasional breakouts in adults.

I was so eager to try it, although not for a pimple to appear on my face. But when one did, I squeezed out a little of the gel and applied it. This serum looks organic -- it's kind of brownish and gooey. It smells organic too.

The next morning, I glanced in the mirror. To my disappointment, the pimple looked worse.

But you know how the healing process is. Sometimes thing look a little worse when they're starting to get better. So I applied the serum again in the morning and again at night.

The next morning, the pimple had multiplied.

I stopped using the serum, and the next morning, most of the baby pimples were gone and the original pimple looked much better.

Maybe it was coincidence -- not the serum that was the problem but something else with my skin.

Does it really matter? No. I won't try this product again.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. I'm not taking any chances

CHECK IT OUT: Maybe Juice Beauty's other products are better. Read more about the blemish serum at the company website.
