Be good to your skin,  you’ll wear it everyday for the rest of your life”        

Incredibly wise words from Renee Rouleau. I wouldn’t say I’m bad to my skin but I definitely need a kick up the bum at times. See I have good skin, a few issues with pigmentation and obviously the Irish broken capillaries around the cheeks and nose… but I don’t ever really have big issues with it. I had wanted to try the Pestle & Mortar for so so long!  So when I had the opportunity to pick these up in Meaghers Pharmacy, I jumped at the chance. They are sold together, or you can purchase separately. This wasn’t my first time using a Hyaluronic Acid serum! I had tried The Ordinary version, which I liked but enter Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum! This serum is in a class of its own. It’s light, it’s incredibly quick to dry in, its plumping…It’s just so good at creating the perfect smooth base. I always follow up with a Moisturiser. I know some people use it as a primer before makeup. At the time I used it, I followed up with the Hydrate Moisturiser. I could possibly have written a separate post on the Moisturiser, I really really love it! 

So let’s see a brief list of the Moisturisers I’ve used in the last twelve months… they were good! There was the entire Environ system, I did love this. I used quite a few jars of Clarins Hydraquench, another good cream. But when I opened the Hydrate, I knew it’d be a while before I’d buy another Moisturiser. I’m in love with this face cream. 

1️⃣ Every night pressing down on the air tight lid was so satisfying. 

2️⃣ The system is designed to dispense just the right amount of product with one pump.  It did!

3️⃣ There’s no sticking your fingers in the jar… (In my opinion every Moisturiser should come with a small spatula ala Chanel) or be airtight like the clever Hydrate dispenser 

4️⃣ The cream smells incredible. It’s got Jojoba (which I find awkward to say but love to smell) green tea and Pomegranate which pumps the skin with antioxidants.

5️⃣ The cream helps the skin to stimulate collagen – helping with elasticity.  I was lucky to be sent a Hydrate Moisturiser. So I’ve started my second jar. I also show the texture of the cream on my Instagram, it’s super lightweight. If you’re interested in purchasing Meaghers Pharmacy have a coupon code currently for 15% off (VIP15). The Hydrate is €48, but it’s even better with a little discount. 

Have you tried the Pestle & Mortar brand? What’s your favourite Moisturiser of all time? I’d love to know.
