Niacinamide (B3) and adaptogenic Reishi are the magic, helping to hydrate and restore the barrier while soothing irritation.

Chemical vs Physical

Chemical exfoliants use acids to remove bonds that hold dull and dead cells together, while physical exfoliants use small particles to scrub cells off the surface. Acid Potion chemically exfoliates without the risk of micro‑tears.

Champagne of Acids

We created Acid Potion because we couldn’t find any liquid exfoliant that didn’t cause redness and inflammation. Our formula has Niacinamide and adaptogenic Reishi to hydrate and soothe the barrier during chemical exfoliation.

Glycolic Goes Deep

Glycolic Acid is so much more than an exfoliator. When you use it regularly, it penetrates deep into the skin to help support collagen production, keeping skin bouncy and elastic.

    Unexpected result!

    Before I go into the product itself, I want to touch on the customer service side of Moon Juice, the type of service EVERY company should strive to achieve ✔️

    I initially bought this product for my acne dark marks and to even out my skin discoloration. It helped a TON! As you can see in the before and after pictures. What I didn’t plan on seeing was the results of the acid potion on my back acne and dark marks. I have suffered from back scars and marks from getting chickenpox in my younger days and acne/scars post TRT therapy in my 20s (current) to boost my gym performance and it never went away, untill THIS! I have used topical prescriptions of antibiotics, salicylic acid, benzol peroxide washes and the list goes on. I asked my bf to put a couple of dabs on my back here and there, and the results speak for themselves. I don’t know if this product was necessary intended for other than facial use, but I am gonna continue to use it on my back!!! Yep on my back..

    Routine:

    Face 😊 Acid Potion/Pump Jelly: 4 times a week, no specific days, once in the Am or in PM. I never used it more than twice in one day. Not due to strength, due to laziness. I can’t imagine what the results would look like had I used it more than that.

    Back 🎒 I use it twice a week ONLY, so I’ve used this a total of maybe 5 times! Again, not cuz of anything aside of the fact that I need the help of my bf to apply it, and that’s only possible during the weekend. I can’t imagine what my back would look like if…

    Amazing for dry skin

    I love this product. I have very dry skin but don’t want to use a 10min peeling mask more than once a week and sometimes glycolic acid just doesn’t do the trick. This product does an amazing job of keeping dry skin at bay without feeling like my skin has been stripped. I like to use an overnight mask after. A little bit of product goes an along way. Definitely will repurchase

FAQs

Is Acid Potion safe for acne prone skin?

Acne prone skin benefits from liquid exfoliation, especially Salicylic Acid since it works inside the pore. A chemical exfoliator exfoliates without micro-tears and helps skin texture. If you are new to Acids, you may experience purging if they are not used to exfoliating – this should resolve within a week.

Does Acid Potion increase photosensitivity?

Yes, please always wear SPF if you are using Acid Potion BHA liquid exfoliant. This is true with any exfoliating product - your skin will be more sensitive to the sun. Also, if you are battling discoloration, SPF should be an essential part of your regimen.

Is Acid Potion OK to use with a Retin-A treatment for acne?

We do not recommend combining our beauty potion with any retinoid treatment for acne, especially if you have sensitive skin. We recommend using Acid Potion on a day when you are not using a retinoid treatment.

How do I use Acid Potion?

Depending on your skin type, use our liquid exfoliator 1-3 nights in a row or every night. Shake into palm and apply onto clean face/neck with fingertips or a cotton pad. Don’t rinse! Follow with Plump Jelly.

Is Acid Potion a toner?

Nope. Acid Potion is a chemical exfoliator – think of it as a liquid facial. It shouldn’t be used in place of a toner in your skin care routine. It should be used on clean skin and follow it up with something hydrating after like Plump Jelly.

  • Salicylic Acid - This beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) liquid exfoliant helps dissolve dead skin cells and oil on the surface of the skin with gentle exfoliation, while unclogging and reducing the appearance of pores.
  • Niacinamide - A soothing form of Vitamin B3, Niacinamide helps even skin tone and replenish the barrier to protect against moisture loss and dehydration.
  • Adaptogenic Reishi - This ultra-hydrating mushroom helps to minimize signs of oxidative stress and bring hydration into the skin.
