I have a thing about reapplying and reusing products right before I write up and finalise my thoughts on them. It means that even after continued use, it’s fresh in my mind and on my face in this case, what the product is like and what it does. Working from home certainly has many perks and this is just one. The Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum really impressed me from the second it arrived, and that definitely has something to do with the swanky packaging. I love black and white packaging, but this just looks so superior to my other beauty products at the moment, and I like that about it.
Obviously, packaging means nothing when it comes to a product, so you may be wondering what it actually does….Well, like most of you, I recognise ‘Hyaluronic Serum’ as an ingredient in a lot of my skincare and I know it’s definitely something to look out for. Which is why I was rather excited to have it purely on its own as Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, but it’s amazing to be able to put it back onto the skin as it helps to plump, moisturise and heal. That’s why it’s found in a lot of skincare, as it helps with wrinkles, lines and has anti inflammatory properties.
Described as the ‘ultimate multi-tasker’ for your skin, it’s not hard to see why when it does so much. Most people say to apply it after toner and being your usual moisturiser and I definitely find this works best for me. I’ve been using it for the last couple weeks and today, when I have come to write this up, I’ve noticed my usually really defined laugh lines, aren’t so defined anymore. Of course, I am using an array of products, but nothing with anti-wrinkle properties at all, so you can imagine that I am indeed rather impressed by this. At 20, having laugh lines isn’t something I inspired to have.
It’s a lightweight formula, with added Vitamin E can which means it can even be used as a ‘velvety smooth’ makeup primer, however, I find it a tad drying on the skin when it’s been left for a couple minutes, which means my makeup would drag and of course, that’s not good for a youthful look. As most products thankfully seem to be now, it is 100% free of any animal derived materials, paraben free and of course, not tested on animals.
At £33 it may seem a little pricey, but this is one of those products where a little goes a long way, as you only need 2-4 drops, and you’ll no doubt be super impressed a week or two in with it.
Have you added Hyaluronic Serum to your daily routine yet?
