Smooth Lines: Skincare for Breakfast with Moon Juice

by flaunt


The California based wellness brand, Moon Juice, has redefined beauty standards with their focus on holistic remedies. Moon Juice entrepreneur, Amanda Chantal Bacon, fixates on the inner wellbeing and it’s translation to outer beauty through the use of plant alchemy. Amanda’s fascination with plant-based medicine derived from a childhood medical crisis which she cured through potent herbs of an Ayurvedic doctor. She then went on to study plant medicine traditions on a global scale while traveling throughout Europe and Asia. Her knowledge as a chef and herbalist inspired the creation of Moon Juice to provide beauty products that enrich the mind, body, and soul. 

The innovation of ingestible beauty has radically trail-blazed a new direction within the beauty industry. Moon Juice has become the mecca of adaptogenic beauty with the help of super herbs, super mushrooms, and super minerals, that are sustainably farmed and harvested at the peak of their potency. In addition to powders and supplements, the LA-based company has recently added topical herbs and serums to their list of products in exclusivity with Sephora. We decided to have skincare for breakfast to see what the holistic Moon Juice rage is all about:


Beauty Shroom, Exfoliating Acid Potion

To restore and resurface the skin towards radiance the acidic potion acts as a facial in a bottle. Made from a variety of magic acids and extracts, it’s exfoliating complex helps to unclog and minimize pores, as well as fight oxidative stress- revealing tighter and brighter skin. We started our morning routine by dabbing the potion on our face and neck.


Beauty Shroom, Plumping Jelly Serum

Made from Silver Ear Mushrooms and Hyaluronic Acid, the serum works to plump and lift the face through hydration barriers. As the jelly sinks into the skin, it reduces fine lines and wrinkles to result in a baby-smooth and supple complexion. We applied this after our exfoliating acid potion set in for optimal skin resiliency.


Pearl, 10:1 Concentrated Extract

10 pounds of pearl have been compressed into 1 pound of pure, potent, and calcium-rich powder to promote anti-aging and support strong hair, skin, and nails. While it can be used in drinks and smoothies, it can also be directly applied to the face, so we mixed it in with some daily moisturizer and applied it over the Plumping Jelly Serum.


Beauty Dust

This combination of pearl and super herbs help to preserve the collagen protein in our body, enhance skin elasticity, and cope with daily stress levels- concocting the perfect remedy for inner and outer beauty. To expand our inner glow, we mixed it in with our morning matcha for an extra dose of caffeine and luster. 


Beauty Shroom, Vegan Collagen Protection

This superfood supplement hydrates and preserves collagen to protect the skin from potential damage. The nutrient-rich powder can be blended in drinks and used to make milk. We incorporated it in a breakfast smoothie; Frozen bananas, spinach, kale, water, and a few teaspoons of the beauty shroom powder making our skincare breakfast a success. 

After using the Moon Juice products, it’s easy to understand what the obsession is all about. Diminishing the use of chemically formulated products and replacing it with herbal supplements and serum dramatically improves one’s beauty from the inside, firstly, and the outside, second. This new path forging through the beauty industry has changed the way people view standards of skincare, as beauty and health reflecting from the inside out.
