So this blog post is a quick review of a serum I’ve been using for a while now.
In case you haven’t heard of them yet, Pestle & Mortar are an Irish skincare brand. The company prides itself on a capsule range of skincare products using science and nature to create them.
The company gifted their Hyaluronic Serum to me and I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and I have to say, I’m totally sold.
I’ve been following directions religiously – applying one or two drops to clean dry skin morning and night. The serum comes in a dropper bottle so you can literally measure out a drop at a time.
I found it a little odd at first as the consistency is unlike anything I’ve tried on my skin before. It’s not unlike egg whites but don’t worry. That doesn’t last. As soon as you apply the serum it sinks straight in to your skin, leaving it smooth and ready for moisturiser straight away.
But does it work? In my opinion yes and noticeably so. After about a week my skin looks fantastic. It’s smooth and definitely shows less signs of irritation. No spots either. Pestle & Mortar products aren’t scented so there’s nothing in them to annoy your skin.
Strangely enough on think I love about this serum is the packaging. The Pestle & Mortar range has an ultra minimalist style but the serum comes in a cardbord tube with the bottle itself securely nestled in the bottom. I love this beause I have a terrible habit of not putting tops back on bottles. There are times when I have literally seen a fortune drain away because I’ve knocked something over. Not so with this – it’s not going anywhere.
I love this product and will happily buy again – at £36 it’s not really going to break the bank, especially as you use one drop at a time.
There are a few products in the Pestle & Mortar range that I’m looking forward to trying. In particular the Retinol Night Oil and the Double Cleansing System. The cleansing system includes a balm, a gel and a 100% cotton cloth. All of these, say Pestle & Mortar, ensure the perfect palette for the rest of your skincare routine to work with. I say, if it’s anything like the Hyaluronic Serum, bring it on.
