Inside Out Beauty with Moon Juice Dusts & Pearl Powder

Moon Juice Dream Dust and Beauty Dust

In my quest to up my wellness game, I’ve been eyeing Moon Juice products for a while.  I’ve read so many articles about the products and its founder, Amanda Chantal Bacon, and I love her philosophy on health and wellness.  Listening to her, she made a point to say wellness should be a fun, learning exploration and not always a conversation around trying to survive or prevent disease.  Unfortunately, though, that’s how a lot of people get on the path to wellness.  But I digress.  Anyway, as I’ve said before, I’ve been eyeing the Moon Juice products for a while and have stalked Moon Juice on Instagram (@moonjuiceshop) for a long time.  I’m a sucker for good branding and packaging and Moon Juice is such a beautifully cool brand.  I had to get my hands on some of the goods.

With three outlets all located in the Los Angeles area, Moon Juice is like a beauty aficionado’s wellness dream.  We all know that taking care of yourself on the inside will lend to being your most beautiful on the outside.  When you are eating right, exercising, getting the proper amount of sleep, thinking positive, and just being an all around good person — that much-sought after glow is yours to be had for as long as you want.  And Moon Juice is here to serve up all of the glow you are looking for.

Popular for its dusts, Moon Juice offers five delectable varieties of adaptogenic blends –Beauty Dust, Dream Dust, Power Dust, Brain Dust, and Sex Dust (insert cheesy grin).  In addition to the dust, Moon Juice offers a large array of health potions for anyone looking to power up their morning smoothies or to stock ingredients for a healthy kitchen.  And if you are lucky enough to be in the LA area, check out all of the delicious Moon Milks and other healthy delectables!

I bought the Moon Juice cookbook last year and I finally got around to reading it and a lot of the recipes caught my eye (more on that in another post).  So naturally, I placed an order for a few of the products to try.  And since I’m all about keeping my skin healthy and keeping it glowing, I placed my first order for the Beauty Dust and the Pearl Beautifying Cell Builder with a sample of the Dream Dust.

TASTE // TEXTURE // RESULTS

I alternated the Beauty Dust in my tea as suggested and I also consumed it in a few smoothies in the morning.  I thought it would have a chalky taste like some protein powders do, but this was actually pretty tasty.  It had a mixed berry flavor and it blended well  with both my tea and smoothie without any grit.  Because of the Stevia, it was mildly sweet and that was a big plus in my book.  As far as seeing a difference in my skin, it did look a little brighter and I had a glow, but not sure it was the Beauty Dust or because I was eating healthy.  I’m going to chalk it up to saying it was a combination of both.  Would I repurchase, again?  Yes!



DREAM DUST

Dream Dust is an adaptogenic blend of tranquil superherbs and Chamomile Flower that

helps to combat the effects of stress to soothe your tension for deep, nocturnal rest.

BENEFITS

Reduces stress to help promote more restful sleep

Helps to alleviate the effects of stress and tension

Helps promote better sleep

INGREDIENTS

Jujube Seed Powder, Chamomile Flower Extract,

Schisandra Berry Powder, Polygala Root Extract,

Ashwagandha Root and Leaf Extract°, Stevia Leaf Extract (Reb A)° (°organic)

TASTE // TEXTURE // RESULTS

The texture of the Dream Dust was just like the Beauty Dust.  I used this one sample dust in a cup of hot tea and the taste was okay.  Some people may be turned off by the earthy taste, but I got through my tea.  The best thing about this Dream Dust is that it does provide you with a night of peaceful sleep.  It’s not that I have trouble sleeping, but I felt like a brand new person when I got up the next day!



PEARL

Not a dust, but a part of the “pantry” products offered by Moon Juice, Pearl is a powder to add to smoothies and homemade nut milk drinks.  I was intrigued by this because a) pearl is my birthstone and b) I love anything with pearls!  I love this because it does provide a noticeable glow to the skin the more you consume it!  Besides who doesn’t want their skin to glow like a luminous pearl?

BENEFITS

Makes your skin glow and helps with discoloration

Regenerates collagen (prevents sagging)

Aids in your quest for a healthy gut and helps with digestion

Good source of calcium, amino acids, & minerals

TASTE // TEXTURE // RESULTS

A very fine powder that is ideal to mix with smoothies or nut milks.  The taste is pretty neutral to my palette, so I can’t say whether or not it has a distinct flavor, but it was good to me.  It is one of the ingredients in the Beauty Dust, but on it’s own, the Pearl powder does give the skin a beautiful noticeable glow.   I’ve even read where some people have even used this as a facial mask!  I may dare myself and try that, but in the meantime, I’ll stick with my smoothies.
