We’re obsessed with this product + here’s why
When I first heard Moon Juice, the creators of the myriad of adaptogenic powders I sprinkle in my morning matcha were revamping what has been labeled the dupe for Biologique Recherche’s P50 Lotion; I honestly got embarrassingly excited about the news. Just a year ago, Beauty Shroom, now known as Moon Juice’s Acid Potion, stepped on the skincare scene as an answer to dullness and uneven texture before clean beauty was as big of a trend as it is today.
Exfoliation is having a revival, and more of us understand the science behind evening skin texture and the products backing claims with results. That’s how Biologique Recherche’s P50 Lotion became a cult favorite among celebs and beauty gurus. People saw results quickly and fell in love with the French allure of this exfoliator. As someone who suffers from reactive, acne-prone skin, I saw its charm after I diluted it in water to avoid the sting; however, I found myself waiting weeks for an overpriced trial size bottle because I could not find this product anywhere. Its accessibility, or lack thereof, was a turnoff, and so was the smell.
Cue Moon Juice’s Acid Potion. Formulated with five acids and botanical support to reveal visibly tighter, brighter, and smoother skin for all skin types, it substantiates the argument that clean formulations can yield results. Its 25% AHA+ BHA acid complex which exfoliate the surface and deep inside our poors, coupled with Niacinamide, Tocotrienols, and adaptogenic Reishi hydration are accomplishing P50 Lotion’s MO, exfoliation while being mindful of our skin’s pH. This product basks in the light of glowing reviews like, “a winning addition to my skincare routine” and “I swear by this acid” by those who use it.
Acid Potion is an effective acid complex for anyone looking to add actives to their skincare routine. Its new packaging makes it more aesthetically pleasing, which increases the chances that you will reuse the bottle around your vanity once empty. Its impressive free-from list includes an ingredient list void of parabens, petroleum, pesticides, propylene, or butylene glycols (and more, ICK!). Just shake well, dab a couple of drops on a reusable cotton round, and apply it to your clean face and neck, avoiding eye area. Follow up with your favorite serum or moisturizer for added hydration, and you’ve checked off exfoliation from your beauty to-dos.
