Still hitting snooze on Moon Dust by Moon Juice? Allow us to fill you in on the Goop-approved smoothie staple. The who’s who in wellness have been buzzing about the brand as early as 2011, but it wasn’t until recently that their signature adaptogenic blends hit the mainstream. Slowly but surely, they started showing up everywhere—in brick-and-mortar beauty stores, lifestyle retailers, and now (finally!) on BeautyMNL. Different dusts, different needs: there’s Brain Dust for focus, Beauty Dust for skin, Dream Dust for sleep; you get the drift. According to Moon Juice, what makes these dusts so effective is the curated selection of super ingredients that go into all of them. Goji berries, ashwagandha, maca… the list goes on, each one promised to be as good for you as the next. Sweet deal for a spoonful of powder, huh? As happy as we are to have these all-natural remedies on site for you to try, we know that they don’t come cheap. A bottle sets you back an eye-popping P2,499, which really makes you wonder if holistic healing should be a special occasion kind of thing. But we’re nothing if not dedicated to our pursuit of total wellness, so of course we’ve got affordable alternatives you can cop, too. Meet Teaconcept: a modern tea brand that has a soothing blend for everything. Like Moon Juice, Teaconcept’s concoctions contain a slew of beneficial ingredients that target specific issues. Their prices range from P525 to P1,875, making them a little easier on the pocket. While they may not have the same adaptogens that Moon Dust is known for, they’ve still got an impressive lineup of other health-boosting superstars. See our swaps, below!
