Amazing, so far

Review By:Becca on 3/1/2016


I'm 26, but I just bought this cleanser because my skin needed brightening. I have sensitive skin that is prone to break out in the t-zone every now and then, but can also get dry. I've tried SO many different products and nothing has worked like this cleanser. After just 1 use, my skin already looks brighter and more even-toned. It feels better, too. I love it! It has a light, pleasant fragrance and leaves my skin feeling soft. I ordered the Green Apple Age Defy moisturizer, as well, to see how the 2 products work together. I'll update my review once I've used the products for a longer period of time, but so far, I'm really pleased!

Great Cleanser

Review By:Robert on 12/8/2015


A very light cleanser that thoroughly cleans without excessively drying. Has a very light, fresh, clean fragrance which is hardly noticeable. Rinses well without residue.

Very Good Cleanser

Review By:Sarah on 11/28/2015


This is a very good cleanser, not harsh and it cleans. Specially knowing that's organic.

Revitalized My Skin

Review By:Fredrica on 10/1/2015


After dealing with terrible skin for a few years, I was finally able to find a product that helped me get rid of my dark acne scars. I use this cleanser with an ACV toner and a light organic oil and it's been a huge help to my skin.

Good Morning!

Review By:Terri on 7/23/2015


I love Juice Beauty. I have (like most of you) tried hundreds of products. This morning cleanser is delightful and I can't wait to wash up in the morning. I never cleansed in the morning because my skin is sensitive and my Dermie told me not to. Not with Juice Beauty. Every offer from JB tends to your skins needs beautifully.

I'm in love

Review By:kathryn on 6/16/2015


I'm 32 and am starting to get very serious about taking good care of my skin. I have very sensitive skin that is prone to dryness in cooler weather. This cleanser is simply fabulous. Gentle enough to use everyday, it leaves my skin looking fresh and healthy and doesn't dry me out. I even love the way it smells. I've been using it daily for over a year now (all year round, no need to change this one out when the weather changes), and I've never been happier with how healthy and happy my skin looks.

Love This Cleanser!

Review By:Stephanie on 6/16/2015


I absolutely adore this cleanser! It has completely evened out my skin tone. I've gone through about two bottles so far since December and since switching to this cleanser my skin is now radiant and glows! Even my boyfriend comments on how "bright and happy" my face looks. This bottle will last for a while and I only use one pump in the morning and then one pump at night. I am 22 with sensitive and normal skin with an oily T-zone. I definitely recommend this product!!

Love this cleanser

Review By:Amber on 6/13/2015


One thing this cleanser has done for me is even out my skin tone. I tried the milk cleanser, and didn't love it because it didn't lather, but this one does and it smells clean and natural! Also, like most of the Juice Beauty products I've tried, a little bit goes a long way!

Great cleanser

Review By:CM on 6/13/2015


I really like this cleanser. A little goes a long way. Works well in conjunction with other juice green apple products.


Review By:Sarah on 6/12/2015


Like the smell. Cleanses without overdrying. Just started to be able to use because I'm done nursing ( Has a retinyl in it). Hlad to use it, working great!

Great product

Review By:Tammy on 6/12/2015


Very nice cleanser, not too drying and really brightens the skin. I hate to run out of this stuff!


Review By:Lisa on 6/11/2015


This cleanser is amazing! Not only does it smell heavenly, but it does a great job cleaning and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. I really liked that this product lasts ages! Just a tiny amount will work to clean your whole face. I follow it with the STEM CELLULAR Moisturizer and it leaves my skin feeling super soft and renewed. PERFECT combo :)

Gentle and effective

Review By:Saliha on 6/11/2015


Great cleanser that is gentle on your skin and doesn't dry you out.


Review By:MARY on 6/11/2015



Great product

Review By:Kat on 5/19/2015


I love the Green Apple skin care line! After about 3 weeks it has given me a more even skin tone, and does wonders for my acne. I use it with my Clarisonic brush twice a day. It makes my skin feel so great! Much softer then I have ever experienced with other face cleansers (trust me, I have used a lot!). You can tell this stuff is magic! I would recommend it to anyone!

Perfect for people with allergies

Review By:Alyssa on 3/11/2015


I've been going crazy looking for a cleanser without chemicals, gluten, dairy or dairy extractions, cocoa, pineapple, or melons; and this product is it! Not only does it contain nothing I'm allergic to but it does an amazing job at keeping my skin clean and smooth! It's the only cleanser I've been able to find that fits these criteria; and works amazingly!

Great Product

Review By:Twinmama on 2/24/2015


The reason I even tried this product was because of the ingredient list. I love that there IS NOT a bunch of chemicals in it to worry about. This product works awesome with my Clarisonic. Just enough slip to a nice clean, yet not over stripped face... This will be purchased again!


Review By:Andrea on 2/24/2015


Great, refreshing scent, light and cleanses very well....


Review By:Jo Ann S. on 2/24/2015


My niece turned me on to this during a trip to the Sephora store in Indianapolis. I was hesitant about the price (I'm used to inexpensive Mary Kay cleansers) but I love this! It makes my face feel so smooth and I didn't think a cleanser could actually brighten the skin, but it does!

Amazing product for discoloration

Review By:Boobutt on 2/24/2015


I've been using this cleanser and the blemish serum together and has worked wonders. I had alot of dark marks from acne scarring that I thought would never go away, but they are getting lighter and less and less noticeable. I'm soo glad I tried the green apple cleanser and blemish serum. They work wonders and smell delicious. I recommend this to anybody especially African Americans who battle with discoloration.

Simply Amazing.

Review By:J on 2/24/2015


This is the first cleanser that I have used that has made a genuine difference in my skin (and I've tried a LOT). I tend to break out due to stress a few times a year and this product, in combination with the Green Apple Peel, has really cleared up my skin dramatically. Because of this product, I have truly clear skin for the first time in my life. I didn't realize what a problem discoloration was for me until this product really evened out my skin tone. Blemishes, freckles, everything! Amazing. I love this product so much that I've given it to my younger brothers to clear up their skin as well. This line really works!

Healthy and Amazing!

Review By:Tammy on 2/24/2015


I have been using this product along with the moisturizer for over a year now. Initially I was seeking out an organic option. Since our skin is our largest organ...I didn't want a bunch of chemicals being absorbed into my body. This product did not disappoint. As other reviewers have skin tone evened out and breakouts have practically stopped. When I use it with my Clarisonic my skin feel amazing, fresh and clean. I will never use anything else.

Clean and bright!

Review By:Freckles on 2/24/2015


Any hopes that I had for this cleanser were not only met, they were surpassed! I was using a sub-par "natural" wash before finding Juice Beauty, and now I realize that it was not, actually, all that natural. The ingredients in this gel are pretty much all recognizable, and the results really let natural beauty shine through! My skin is brighter, my skin doesn't break out hormonally like it did before, and it leaves my skin feeling clean but not dry. I've been recommending it to all of my fellow beauty buffs!


Review By:David on 2/24/2015


In my opinion, it is one of the best facial cleansers out there. I've tried many facial products that had too many chemicals for my sensitive face to handle, so I decided to try this and believe it or not, it greatly helped the feeling of my face and also it's appearance. My skin tone is dark and the PIH of acne only made it worse, but this product really helped out. Please Juice Beauty, never discontinue this product!

Review By:Jennifer on 2/24/2015


I just started using this cleanser tonight!
My face feels refreshed!!

Green Apple Cleanser

Review By:Cynthia on 2/24/2015


I love this cleanser. It leaves your face bright and refreshed, and I follow it up with the serum and moisturizer. It is wonderful and also love the citrus scent.


Review By:Stacie on 2/24/2015


I decided to try this cleanser along with a few of it's campanions from the Green Apple line, because I am in my early 30's. This is my second favorite, next to the peel. It actually lightens, brightens, and tightens. After using this system, I was approached by a couple of High School students (while on a weekend walk) who thought that I was a student at their school.
It foams well with my clarisonic, and does a great job with cleaning off make-up. I am truly impressed, but my oily skin became acne prone at the age of 29. I will have to say farewell to this cleanser until I can get my acne under better control. Glad I have other women/men in my life who will appreciate this as a gift.

Not so pleased

Review By:Michelle on 2/24/2015


I began using this product a a couple of months ago. Acne problems started about the 3rd week. I'm 44 and haven't had acne for a long time! I traveled over the weekend and forgot to pack it. I used an over the counter brand and my acne, literally, looked better the by the end of the weekend. Not sure if I'll try one of the other cleansers.


Review By:Flora on 2/24/2015


This cleanser works great on its own or with my clarisonic and leaves my skin feeling clean but not tight. I am someone who had a hard time switching to a cream cleanser so this is the perfect cleanser for me! I would recommend this product to anyone!

Nurse practitoner applauds the genius ingredients!

Review By:Linda Piatt FNP on 2/24/2015


I am a 63 year old health care provider who is very attuned to environmental health (just look @ commentaries on make up ingredients)! I have been very pleased to find these products. I have used the Green Apple line and Alicia Silverstone make up for over a year with amazing results...patients in my clinic are surprised to find out I was born in 1950! They frequently comment on my skin: which becomes a great opportunity to educated them on how your skin is your LARGEST detox very careful what you apply there! I have a theory about those who have skin breakouts after starting these products...your skin will attempt to detox if given good support!

Green apple cleansing gel

Review By:Jennifer on 2/24/2015


Love it!!! I first tried a sample a long time ago. I was hesitant because it seemed like a lot of money(to me). But it is well worth it. Plus I don't use very much for it to work.

I keep coming back

Review By:Christina on 2/24/2015


The Green Apple Cleanser keeps getting me back. I have a short attention span. I get bored. I try something else. And for years I've been coming back. Clean, fresh, healthy, dewy skin is my reward. People often ask me how I keep my skin looking so young - what facialist I use - what ultra expensive products...........LOL..........I use the Green Apple line mixed with some of Juice's other products when I'm having a short attention span moment and call it a day. And I look 10 years younger than I am. I'll keep coming back. :)


Review By:Karla on 2/24/2015


I've tried three of Juice beauty's cleansers (additionally, Cleansing Milk & Blemish Clearing Cleanser. This is my least favorite. I have combination skin. Very dry in the winter and normal in the summer, but more oil than my skin can handle. This didn't cleanse enough in the summer & didn't provide hydration in the winter. Decent product, but not for me.

Works great!!

Review By:Alina on 2/24/2015


Bought this in a set and i love it. I had some serious cystic acne that eventually went away. But it left some horrible acne scars on my cheeks. I've been using this for about 2 months and my skin feels so much better.


Review By:Karissa on 2/24/2015


This cleanser makes your skin feel so clean and healthy - I just love it. My skin seems brighter after using it. I definitely recommend it!


Review By:Heike Dearmon on 2/24/2015


Love this product with my clarisonic , leaves my skin super soft but not stripped. Also love the pure organic ingredients.

Great Cleanser

Review By:Phyllis on 2/24/2015


I love this cleanser because it really removes all makeup and leaves my face clean. It feels great and washes off nicely. I have tried other cleansers and they don't seem to remove the makeup as good as this one does.

Love this line!

Review By:Alison on 2/24/2015


Works great. My skin isn't irritated after and feels clean and fresh.

Game- changer.

Review By:Heather on 2/24/2015


I have been dealing with the after math of my acne-THE SCARS! They were red and uneven and gross and annoying to no end, until I bought the Green Apple Cleansing Gel! This product has cleared my scars and hyperpigmentation completely. I don't even wear foundation anymore, just concealer under my eyes! Thank you, Juice Beauty.

Great Cleanser

Review By:Marie on 2/24/2015


I have combination skin and this cleanser works perfectly. If clarifies and cleans without drying my face out. It's never caused me to breakout and I can use it with confidence knowing that I am putting such pure ingredients on my face.

Best face wash

Review By:Alexa on 2/24/2015


Love love love!!!! Best facial cleanser I've ever used leaves my skin feeling so clean and fresh. Love that it's all organic and natural and no harsh chemicals are being used.

Magic Cleanser

Review By:Grace on 2/24/2015


I have combination, acne-prone skin that also is incredibly sensitive. I first tried this cleanser as part of the Green Apple Age Defy kit and fell in love. This cleanser + spinning cleansing brush = smooth, soft, fresh skin right out of the shower. It deep cleans without being drying or irritating the skin. This cleanser is a winner and should be in your skincare arsenal!

Really Good Stuff!

Review By:Renee on 2/24/2015


I really like this line, it cleans well and tightens which makes me feel like it's doing it's job!

Gentle and Effective

Review By:Shelley on 2/24/2015


I have been transitioning my entire house to natural products over the past year, including my skin care products. For cleansing, I had been using a homemade oil cleanser that I was happy but when I came across this organic cleanser I had to try it. Wow! I have never used anything that cleans so well, yet so gently. This cleanser made an immediate difference. My skin is so clean and bright after washing and not dry like other brands can make it. It costs more than making my own products but it takes so little each use and the results are definitely worth it.


Review By:Raine on 2/24/2015


Nice to use!

LOVE!! Feels amazing on my skin.

Review By:Mya on 2/24/2015


The first time I used this I fell in LOVE. It feels so good on my skin and I have never said that about a cleanser before. It also works great and made my skin look AMAZING! I recommend this to anyone. Also a little goes a long way and you don;t have to use very much to cover your whole face with this cleanser.

Not sure

Review By:James on 2/24/2015


I don't feel the difference of this organic cleansing gel from other brand products.

It Works

Review By:jam on 2/24/2015


I do not have the best skin and this cleanser cured my pimples only a couple of days using it. Expensive but worth it. This one actually works better than any other product!

I am in love!

Review By:Chaunte H. on 2/24/2015


Well I am a 27 year old African American young lady with acne prone oily brown skin. Prior to August 2013 I had flawless skin thanks to my birth control. However I discontinued use and my skin went completely wacky! I mean every time I looked up I had a new pimple forming and my forehead was a oil slick. I started trying everything and I found that OTC skin care products were to harsh for my skin. I then found juice beauty and a esthetician, which together significantly improved my skin within months. I am now a juice beauty stickler! I use nothing else! Thank u to the creator as this product is genius!

A Daily Routine MUST!

Review By:Lauren on 2/24/2015


I purchased this cleanser not even a week ago and am already in love. My face feels cleaner and more refreshed. I use it with Juice Beauty's hydrating mist to give my skin a happy glow! I definitely recommend this product.

Perfect face wash

Review By:Amanda on 2/24/2015


I have used lots of different products in my days and this cleanser is the BEST. Skin is clean without being dry and never caused any breakouts.

So pleased

Review By:Julie on 2/24/2015


I'm new to Juice Beauty and soooo glad I found them. I'm transitioning over to a more natural, organic lifestyle in regards to my beauty and skin care. Just the idea of lathering chemicals on my face makes my skin crawl, so when I discovered Juice Beauty, I was sooo excited and had to give it a try. To my surprise they have surpassed every expectation I had. I'll admit I was a bit iffy, so I decided to first sample their travel set and then figure out from there which products I like and which products I could handle because I have very sensitive skin and will literally breakout from any and everything. Luckily with this cleanser, it felt good going on, left my skin nice and cleansed when I rinsed it off and most importantly, no allergic reaction. I am so grateful I have found this skincare line and will continue to use it. I am definitely going to be a repeat customer... Thanks Juice Beauty!!!

I love the Green Apple Cleanser

Review By:Elizabeth Price on 2/24/2015


I received a sample of the Green Apple Cleanser in the mail. I was impressed. This product will last for ages because all that is needed is a drop mixed with water and the entire face gets a refreshing "feel" to it. I also notice a "tightening feeling" and a subtle glow. It can only get better. Thank you for turning me on to this cleanser. I am going to get the rest of the Green Apple series.


Review By:Amanda on 2/24/2015


This is the best facial cleanser I have ever used. My skin feels clean and fresh every time I use it!


Review By:Megan on 2/24/2015


This is one of the first organic beauty lines I have ever tried and I am so amazed by this product! I have tried many in the past and got very little results from use. I love how much cleaner and brighter my skin looks after use. I could see the results within the first week. Definitely going to continue using and recommending to others! Amazing products!


Review By:Jennifer Sproha on 2/24/2015


I have only used this once (this morning) and LOVED it! I am very picky with face cleanser. I like to feel exfoliated/super clean even though this can be drying. I felt clean and smooth without over washing just once was enough.

Nice clean feeling

Review By:mari on 2/24/2015


I love everything about this cleanser. Smells nice, gel formula, my skin really feels clean after but not dried out. Use daily in a.m. I have sensitive skin and this product does not dry my skin out.

Makes My Face Feel Fabulous

Review By:Debbie on 2/24/2015


This cleansing gel is fabulous. I use it every evening and love that it easily washes away my makeup while leaving my face feeling fresh & clean. This gel adds moisture to my skin & exfoliates gently. My face has a much younger appearance even without makeup. The skin is brighter, tighter, & soft. I keep looking in the mirror thinking, "Heh, I don't look over 50 anymore!"

Simply Amazing

Review By:Kelly on 2/24/2015


Just love, love this. I've tried so many things and this is the only one that has given me amazing results. I use the entire green apple line and the compliments I've received will keep me using it. My skin looks and feels great! I recommend to anyone who wants great results. I also love that it is mad with organic ingredients!

Green Apple Cleansing Gel

Review By:CJWW on 2/24/2015


I am a 49 year old woman with hyper-sensitive skin and use this product at night before going to bed. It dissolves and cleanses off makeup very well. I usually use a toner after to make sure I get all traces of makeup removed. I have found I do not necessarily need to do after using this at night. It says not recommended for sensitive skin,I disagree,it is gentle on my skin. I have had no irritation,rash,hives,etc. from using it like I get with other products.

Great Cleanser

Review By:E Price on 2/24/2015


I've tried samples of the Green Apple line and love the cleanser. It's been about 2 weeks, once a day and my skin looks different, or better. The product made my skin brighter and with a better tone. And the bottle will last a long time. All you need is a small amount to clean your face. It's refreshing and delivers.

Monthly hormone acne is a lie!

Review By:DJ on 2/24/2015


I started using JB products at 36 years of age. I used to get those painful, under-the-skin pimples on my chin every month that everyone says are hormone related - there's nothing you can do about them. Wrong! JB got rid of my monthly outbreaks. I even decided to switch back to over-the-counter products to try to save money, and those pesky blemishes came back! When I switched back to JB - no problems! I've also noticed, since starting the green apple line, that my hyper-pigmentation is less noticeable. I was born and raised in Florida, so I have quite a bit of sun damage. I can see the brown spots lightening. I use this cleanser morning and night as part of my green apple routine. (AM: Cleanse, treat, moisturizing sunscreen, JB make-up. PM: Cleanse, treat, moisture. Twice a week: peel) My skin has never looked and felt so amazing - even when I was younger. My daughter and boyfriend use JB as well (just not the green apple series).

Deep cleansing

Review By:stephy on 2/24/2015


This cleanser is deep cleansing. Can over dry the skin if used everyday. I only use it when I notice I need to deep clean my pores. Sometimes this is too strong for my combination sensitive skin it over strips the skin of the natural oils making my skin become more oily yet peeling and flaky patches. Great for my oily t-zone not the entire face. I like how it help with some clog pores but its causes my skin to become flaky/dehydrated. This is better for super oily skin.
