ICYMI: Juice Beauty Class with Founder Karen Behnke


Juice Beauty is an all-organic and natural beauty line derived from antioxidant-rich juice bases that deliver promising results. Actress and creative director of Juice Beauty’s phyto-pigment make-up line, Gwyneth Paltrow made an appearance at Holt Renfrew’s Bloor Street flagship alongside founder of the brand, Karen Behnke to celebrate the launch of Juice Beauty at select Holt Renfrew locations across Canada. Karen held an intimate beauty master class for a group of women from their teens to 60s, to customize a full beauty routine and experience the full skincare and makeup line with experts on-site.

By formulating their products with 75%-90% USDA certified organic juices, there is no compromise in your well-being nor the environment. Instead, you are directly consuming the rich nutrients packed in the juices worry-free. This healthy formulation method practiced by Juice Beauty is unrivaled when it comes to taking care of your body- over 60% of the ingredients are absorbed right into your blood stream whether good or bad, risking your health in the long term if not done correctly. It started when Karen was pregnant with her first child at the age of 40, and read the chemical-filled labels of her skincare for the very first time. With many hearts and hands from science, business, wellness backgrounds, botanical juices became the focus ingredient and Juice Beauty has continuously innovated effective, harmless products.

“Every drop feeds your skin, and the results are evident because organically farmed ingredients have 30% higher antioxidant levels than those conventionally farmed”

Below are my favourite picks from the line- Recommended personally by the Juice Beauty expert team from California, and Karen herself.

1. Stem Cellular 2-in-1 Cleanser

This cleanser melts makeup, and leaves your skin feeling hydrated. This is an essential first step in prepping for your nighttime beauty routine as it helps create a smooth foundation for serum and moisturizer.

It’s buildable with an airbrushed finish. Surprisingly long-lasting- not only that, but filled with berry juices and aloe minerals!
