Prepare for profoundly transformative results!
1. Morning: After cleansing, add 1-2 pumps of Magick Potion Lotion to your finger tips and apply all over your face and neck. Mist with Hydrosol and massage in upward circular motions, creating a light "foam". Allow to set for a few minutes and it will soak in completely before applying your N&R oil, LOMAH Lotion, Blooming Rose Creme or just make-up, depending on your skin's needs.
2. Evening: apply before make-up for a night out and about! Simply apply to clean skin, massage (with water or a hydrosol) to create the Magic Potion Foam, allow to set and apply make-up.
We recommend using this product for three weeks and then taking a one-week break every month. Do not use in conjunction with pharmaceutical skin care, heavy AHAs and retinols or the BY&TM Vita-C ten day treatment (you CAN do that during your "week-off" though.
The Story of Magick Potion Lotion (According to Emma):
How does one create a healthy skin care treatment that lives up to this name?! Yes, I have been listening. You love the products; you love how healthy and fresh you skin feels using the all-natural stuff everyday. Your skin tone and texture has improved following a simple 2 to 3 step regimen faithfully. But all those claims from the other skin care lines …magazines…the department store…the drug store (ahhhh!!!) each promising youth and beauty. But at what cost? Petrol-products? Parabins? And do they work? Are there enough active ingredients in the drug store brand (mixed with a slurry of chemical skin care) to actually make a difference? Hmmm…But I am listening. I know you want it. That magic Potion Lotion. The one that is filled with the newest advances in skin care to remove wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, blemishes, years! So, here you go. I did it. This unique and naturally-based treatment is loaded with the popular and powerful active ingredients of hyaluronic acid, DMAE, vitamin A, B, C and E, CoQ10 and alpha lipoic acid while incorporating the use of multi-fruit acids and the “wonder-oil” that comes from the meadowfoam plant. Oh, and did I mention that it’s made with pure rosewater distillate? Remember, no matter how fancy we can get—it’s still Between You & The Moon.
About the "advanced" ingredients:
Hyaluronic Acid was "discovered" by Karl Meyer in 1934 and since then, has been successfully used in personal care and wound healing. It is a substance that is naturally found in the extra cellular matrix of human tissue (Like elastin in collagen). When topically applied, hyaluronic acid forms an air permeable layer that can penetrate the dermis (the next layer down from the epidermis), thus boosting the elasticity and hydration of the skin. The protective breathable barrier on the skin locks in moisture and has a unique ability to hold more than 1000 ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid, which gives the skin a youthful appearance. Amazingly, hyaluronic acid adjusts its moisture absorption based on the relative humidity in the air meaning that it adjusts to the skin’s need for a moisturizing effect depending on the season and climate of an area. Hyaluronic acid has also been shown to protect the epidermis by scavenging reactive oxygen species generated by ultra violet light, which would normally cause sunspots. The Hyaluronic acid in MPL is made by a Vegan-approved fermentation process in an organic-based lab (not mine!).
Niacinamide is an amazing antioxidant that works for aging and acne related issues. It is the biologically active form of niacin, Vitamin B3 which increases the rate of skin exfoliation and increases moisture barrier repair. Studies have shown it to be useful in increasing synthesis of collagen and lipids, inhibiting the transfer of melanosomes and decreasing inflammation. "Niacinamide is one of the vitamins that I believe we'll hear more and more about in the coming years. Already, topical 4% niacinamide has been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of papular and pustular acne in a 4% gel, as well as the improvement of skin cancer and its anti-tumor characteristics'' (Dr. Draelos).

Pro-Vitamin B5 (dl-Panthenol) is a popular humectant known for it's ability to counteract environmental and age-related dryness as well as increase the moisture retention capacity of the skin. This allows dry skin to stay supple and elastic longer. It is anti-inflammatory and stimulates skin regeneration. Together, Niacinamide and Panthenol improve the condition of the skin's moisture barrier, a function considered by dermatologists as critical to healthy skin.
AS mentioned (over and over again) in Dr. Nicholas Perricone’s #1 New York Times Best Seller, The Wrinkle Cure, Unlock the Power of Cosmeceuticals for Supple, Youthful Skin it … DMAE, Alpha Lipoic, Ester C and Vitamin E are rock-n-roll for your skin. According to Dr. Perricone, products containing DMAE, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Vitamin E and Retinol (Vitamin A) can create amazing results in the appearance of aging skin. DMAE is found in foods and can create an almost immediate appearance in the firming and tone of the skin. Vitamin C Ester is well known and long documented antioxidant that protects the surface of the skin from free radicals that can damage the skin. Alpha Lipoic Acid is the most powerful of antioxidants. It is able to benefit both the water and lipid portions of the skin. It is said to give the skin a “youthful and glowing appearance.” Retinol Palmitate (Vitamin A) nourishes the skin and assists in the “rejuvenation process that maintains a more youthful appearance.” Alpha Hydroxy Acids gently remove dead skin and provide an added antioxidant. In this formula I use the gentle and natural form of AHA’s that occur in natural fruit extracts.
