Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum

What is it?

‘A hyaluronic acid serum that hydrates and soothes even the most sensitive skin while smoothing fine lines and restoring youthful elasticity. Targets fine lines, dullness and dehydration restoring a healthy glow, plumpness and radiance.’

A lightweight hyaluronic acid serum/liquid.

Who is it for?

Everyone with skin. Literally. Especially great for those with dehydration, dryness or the classic feeling of ‘tightness’ on the skin.

propylene glycol

How do you use it?

Apply 3-4 drops into palm of hand, therapist swipe, apply quickly to skin. Apply, don’t worry too much about massaging in, it absorbs quickly.

What’s good about it?

This is an excellent hydrator and could be perfect for those of you wanting to avoid fragrance and faff. It literally absorbs in seconds, and the effect is immediate.
The market for hyaluronic acids is growing, but this one has the fewest ingredients I have come across. It feels ‘clean’ to use, if that makes sense. Perfect for this time of year. Everyone I have seen at events recently has been dehydrated due to the change in weather, something like this gives immediate relief.

What’s not so good about it?

Not much. All good so far.

Where to use in your routine?

After toning, under moisturiser. I prefer to acid tone, spritz, apply this, then moisturiser. A moisture sandwich if you will.
