The creators of Once In a Pink Moon bring the stars and skincare together to conjure your perfect beauty balance.
As astrologers, we believe that we’re all “spiritual beings having a human experience.”
And taking care of your soul’s address—your body—is part of the ritual of being human.
If you’re reading this right now, we don’t need to tell you that astrology is the world’s best decoder for basically everything.
But you might not have realized this before: Your skin has an astrological profile based on the four elements of the zodiac.
Does your skin need to be uplifted by fire? Strengthened by earth? Hydrated by water? Brightened by air?
This quiz from Once In A Pink Moon can help you figure out what products you actually need to use to give your face a proper glow-up at any age or stage. Then, come back and read about what it means here.

Having just celebrated our 50th birthday, we’re special fans of Pink Moon’s commitment to serve all ages with their vegan, natural essences and fragrance-free cleansers and moisturizers.
The Once in a Pink Moon collection brings a new sensibility to skincare, focusing on rejuvenation, ritual and self-love instead of the tired messages about “anti-aging.” Instead, these products are about uplifting your skin (and yourself!) no matter how many years you’ve been on the planet.
We also love that OPM is a woman-owned business: Co-founders Virgo Lin Chen and Gemini Ava Lichauco are an awesome and ambitious Mercury-ruled duo who put thought into every detail of their brand and business—and it shows.
Despite being twins, we’ve always had differences in our skin. Ophi, who scored as fire element skin, is prone to breakouts, while Tali (who rarely gets acne) got the air element for her result.
So, which products from the Once in a Pink Moon collection fit YOU best? Here’s the breakdown by element…
Good news! For each of the four elements, Once In A Pink Moon has a cleanser, essence and moisturizer designed especially to nourish and protect your skin’s barrier.
ENERGIZE your skin with the FIRE element…
The FIRE collection focuses on: Energizing & Awakening
Star ingredients: Green coffee, ginseng & hibiscus
“The fire element enlivens, awakens and has a bold energy,” Pink Moon explains. “This energizing ritual is for bright and early risers and activating fiery ‘inner child’ energy.”
Aries is a “take action” sign – allow this cleanser to inspire you! A silky cream-gel cleanser fueled by skin calming ingredients to balance skin and activate fiery energy. Ideal for skin that needs to chill out.
