When I first heard of Pestle & Mortar I immediately think of the cooking equipment used to crush and grind spices and other ingredients. However, when I discovered that it was actually a skincare brand that is created with beauty and body wellness as its mantra I was definitely intrigued. Founded in early 2014 by Sonia Deasy, it is a family owned company that wanted to create a serum that was genuinely healthy for your skin and hassle free for those of us who have a busy lifestyle.
First of all can we just take a minute to appreciate the incredibly gorgeous packaging of the Pure Hyaluronic Serum?! It is just so chic and simplistic, I’m such a sucker for a well designed product! Now, back to business… For those of you who follow my blog or social media accounts (shame on you), you will all know just how much I love a good serum. I find this type of product works best with my skin type. I recently learnt that a liquid or gel product is best for my skin as it gets congested quite bad. I love the luxury feeling you get with a serum and the way it leaves my skin feeling. Less is certainly more when applying them as they’re quite a liquid based product you don’t need much. It actually reminds me a lot of the Josie Maran Aragon Oil that I got when I was in America. It’s pretty lightweight when applied and it doesn’t leave a greasy or oily residue. Bonus points!
I’ve been using this for just over one month now every night as this is when my skin responds best. It allows my skin to absorb the serum to its full potential. Each morning I can still feel a some of the product on my face which I actually like as I’ll know that my skin hasn’t completely drained it.
Have any of you lovelies tried the Pestle & Mortar brand before? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
