Beauty Dust, $65
Cost per serving: $4.19
Ingredients: Goji, rehmannia, pearl, schisandra, and stevia.
What it promises: Preservation of youth, shiny hair, twinkling bright eyes, and glowing skin.
What it delivers: This Dust added to the taste of my rose tea blends, though I honestly couldn't tell whether or not my hair was shinier or if my face was more clear than usual. Maybe if I didn't use so many other skincare products, I would have been able to notice a difference.
What the experts say:
"This Dust contains two super-berries—goji and schisandra. Both are antioxidant-rich and are adaptogens, meaning they’ll help fortify your immune system, improve energy levels, and increase your ability to focus. While I don’t think this is necessarily beauty in a bottle, I know that when I’m healthy, energetic, and focused I feel much better about myself!" — Grigore.
"I love this combination of Asian superfoods here. They are all potent adrenal adaptogens or known for their strong antioxidant properties. It is safe for consumption assuming that the ingredients are truly tested. It is hard to find organic ingredients from China and the source is not mentioned on the product label. Perhaps they are wildcrafted in the U.S. If they are from Asia, I would be concerned about high amounts of heavy metals in Chinese herbs." — Dr. Francis
