originally i was just going to say i think they just copied the items from showhiddenitems mode where it only has 1 description, but then i double checked my game, and the descriptions for them except 1 of the them say resets perks points. then i realized i don't have knitting pack, then thought they could've rewritten the text to curse cleansing. 

 

So 1 year ago the programmer after typing in 1 text for the 1st bottle said, "i'm not going to write a different text for each in showhiddenitems mode, i'll just make the game read only 1 type for all the rest, no 1 will see it"

 

Then 1 year later another programmer or same programmer making plopsy said "I'll just take the items from the debug mode to be in plopsy... hmm, they all say reset perks, i should rewrite them all to reflect each type, nah, that's too much time, but I'll just update the text to cleansing instead'

 

which either way is still lazy programming to change all from resetting to cleansing, if that's what the text reads in showhiddenitems mode for knitting pack.

I've seen this on PS4. The potions have the correct names, but the tooltip is wrong when you select the item for more information.

 

Edit: Added Screenshot.
