Hi beauties! I recently tried out some skincare products from Juara Skincare. Juara has a wonderful line of luxurious products that smell as amazing as they sound! Juara skincare is botanically based on Indonesian herbal formulas and paired with scientific results. A beautiful fusion of east and west! Juara products are 100% Vegetarian, Cruelty-free, Paraben-Free and contain no artificial colorants, sulfates, or phthalates. The line was founded by 4 Women of Asian ancestry that are dedicated to producing quality products.
I was able to try several items from their line and I am excited to share them with you!
The sample packets came in a pretty little golden bag. There were several different items in this pretty little bag for me to try out.
I sampled the Clove Flower and Turmeric Serum, Candlenut body cream, Sweet Black Tea & Rice Facial Moisturizer, Avocado Banana Moisture Mask, Turmeric Antioxidant Facial Radiance Mask, Rice Facial Cleanser, and Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner.
They all sound delicious, don’t they?! ^_^
First up is the Avocado Banana Moisture Mask. Both of the masks from Juara are different from other masks I’ve used. These do not harden when you wear them. You also don’t end up looking like the Creature from the Black Lagoon which is a nice change. The masks are also great to leave on overnight without staining your pillows and sheets!! I am not a huge fan of bananas so I was a little worried about having a banana smell on my face for a prolonged period of time. Thankfully the Avocado Banana Moisture Mask is fragrance free, which is nice for those with fragrance sensitivity. The mask itself is smooth and silky like a really rich skin cream. A little goes a really long way with both of the masks I tried. My skin felt very soft and really hydrated when I removed the the Avocado Banana Moisture Mask. I did not have any breakouts or other skin problems after using this. I really liked that the mask felt light, not greasy or oily at all!

The other mask I tried is the Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Facial Mask. This mask is incredibly silky feeling! There is a very faint scent of turmeric in the product itself, but the scent did not linger on my skin after removal of the mask. I am pretty sensitive to fragrance. I have a really sensitive nose and a lot of fragrances give me migraines. I am happy to say that this mask did not bother me whatsoever. I did feel a little warm tingle while using this product. Nothing unpleasant or painful though, it just lets you know it’s beautifying your skin! The Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Facial Mask can also be left on overnight without fear of ruining your bed. This mask does have clay in it but it does not harden or make you look scary while wearing it. No frightening your partner in the morning, SCORE!! My skin felt really soft and smooth after I removed the mask. I also did not have any breakouts or clogged pores after using this, just really happy and healthy feeling skin!

It includes the Avocado Banana Moisture Mask, Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Facial Mask, and Rose Willowbark Blemish-free Mask. The individual jars are $9 each, so the set is a great deal!!!
The next few items came in cute little paper sample packs. Yay for eco-friendly packaging!!!
The Clove Flower & Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum is a non-greasy, super moisturizing serum. The serum is oil-free which I absolutely love! I have super oily skin and worry when trying out new skincare, I don’t want to be an oil slick! This serum gave my skin a firmer feel to it and left it smooth. There is a slight scent with this product that is very clean smelling and subtle. The scent fades pretty quickly so I would imagine it would be okay for fragrance sensitive folks. I had no reaction to the fragrance myself. The sample packs I used had several uses in each. I got about 4 light applications from each packet. A little goes a long way with this serum. (Especially when using after the Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner!!!) The website says to use at night, which I did, but I really liked using the Clove Flower & Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum in the morning to help my face look more alive. It really helped calm my grumpy skin down and firm up my skin so I could look human again. I am soooo NOT a morning person!

The Candlenut Body Creme is like heaven in a container! This smells intoxicating and feels as good on your skin as it smells. I would love to dive in a vat of Candlenut Body creme and live there. Forever! My skin was baby soft and smelled amazing after using this body creme. If you are a fan of Shea Butter, you need to try Candlenut Creme. It’s like Shea Butter’s big sister who figured out life already and knows how to get things done! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I just don’t even know how to describe the awesomeness in this stuff. I’ll leave it at that.
From the Juara website:

Another beautiful skin helper is the Sweet Black Tea & Rice Facial Moisturizer. This moisturizer leaves your skin feeling really moisturized and not greasy. I used this moisturizer alone, paired with the Clove Flower & Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum, and paired with both the serum and Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner. Even with using all 3 products together I never felt overloaded or greasy. The Sweet Black Tea & Rice Facial Moisturizer is light, silky, and smells so great. I used it twice a day and did not have any breakouts or pools of oil on my face. The scent is very light and clean and did not bother me at all. The scent is soothing so it was nice to put on before bed. My pillow would smell nice all night. I was able to get about 5 uses per packet out of the moisturizer. It takes very little to cover your face and neck area. Especially when your skin is toned and ready to absorb.

The Juara Rice Facial Cleanser smells so light and fresh. There is a good amount of lather despite being sulfate-free. This cleanser feels DIVINE! It softens your skin so much while it attacks the makeup and extra oils on your face. The thing that amazed me the most about this cleanser is that it removed all of my waterproof eyeliner and mascara effortlessly!! No scrubbing or extra effort required either! I love that I did not need to bust out a separate makeup remover to use around my eye area after washing my face. This alone made me love the Rice Facial Cleanser!!!! I use pretty budge proof eyeliner, which is great during the day. At night it takes makeup remover to get it completely off. Until I met this cleanser. My face feels so clean and ridiculously soft after using this cleanser. Life=changed. That is all.
From the Juara website:
WHAT IS IT: A foaming, sulfate-free rinse-off cleanser which removes make-up and skin-dulling debris with gentle cleansers, while evoking the traditional Indonesian ritual of a rice water rinse.
WHAT’S KEY IN IT: Rice starch, known for its soothing and softening properties, helps prevent moisture loss by enhancing the skin’s protective barrier. Also rich in amino acids and proteins naturally found in rice.
WHAT IT DOES: This gentle cleanser removes dirt and make-up without any taut after-feel. Its soap-free formulation prevents moisture loss and will leave your skin feeling super soft.

Last but not least is the Juara Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner. This product is a multi-tasker. It is a moisturizer, toner, and serum in one. It smells marvelous and is the perfect follow up to the Rice Facial Cleanser. The toner has hyaluronic acid in it, which is a super humectant. Hyaluronic Acid is a great ally to have in the fight against dry and/or aging skin. The amazing ingredient can hold in moisture well beyond its own weight. I’ve seen claims from 500-6000 times its weight. Even at twice its weight, that’s powerful stuff! I used it before to help me get through a sunburn! Add tamarind, a blend of antioxidant teas, and soothing rice bran extract and you have a super skin friendly toner on your hands! You could get away with not using a moisturizer after cleansing, but I still used one. This toner just feels and smells so nice!
From the Juara website:
WHAT IS IT: An oil-free, fragrance-free skin quenching toner serum that provides hydration to thirsty skin while it calms and softens skin instantly with a single pump.

A calming infusion of white, green, and black teas comforts and delivers healthful antioxidants to the skin. Vitamin-rich rice bran extract provides calming benefits, minimizing redness and other signs of stress.
