When your favorite juice / herbal supplement / magical adaptogenic snack shop creates a line of skincare, it's a bit of a potential mic-drop. It's either going to change the way you feel about the brand forever, or it's as epic as everything you could ever hope for. In the case of Moon Juice Beauty Shroom Plumping Jelly Serum, it's the latter.
I had sworn I wasn't going to buy it yet, but I caved as soon as I was introduced IRL while grabbing my favorite snack last week. In my defense, my go-to serum ran out literally that morning. After just one use I was completely floored by this serum that I didn't think going to do much for my oily skin. This jelly serum uses ingredients that I have literally blended into my favorite smoothie on a regular basis to perform anti-aging, calming, hydrating miracles to anywhere it touches. Specifically, my under eyes look like better than they did 10 years ago. My pores look somehow smaller, and I never say that. My lips feel like literal pillows. I'm devising a plan to break into their factory and bathe in a vat of shroom juice. Here's what's inside:
- Reishi mushroom: anti-inflammatory, barrier/resistance; drink it all day long!
- Tocos: Vitamin E: collagen preservation, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory: drink it every day!
- Silver Ear (Tremella) mushroom: Hydration, plumping; also great in tonics!
- Hyaluronic Acid: hydrating gold standard of cosmetics, holds 1000x it's weight in water, plumping
Also... has anyone tried actually adding this to a morning tonic? Ok no, let's not try that. But technically, you probably could. All hail Kween Amanda Chantal Bacon for bringing her alchemy genius game to my face. Mic-drop indeed.
