Pestle & Mortar Glow Drops will give you a natural-looking sun-kissed glow without all the palaver or iffy chemicals of other self-tanning products.

These are customisable drops that come in the form of a lovely serum that’s enriched with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid.

Getting that golden radiance is effortless with Pestle & Mortar. All you need to do is add some drops to your favourite moisturiser in the morning and your tan will develop gradually.

What’s best of all is that you get to control whether you achieve a natural radiance, a sun-kissed glow or a deep golden complexion.

Who doesn’t love that island holiday look! And now you can achieve it without ever having to expose your skin to the damaging effects of the sun.

Why Pestle & Mortar Glow Drops?

Sunless tanning products are often complicated to apply and end up looking so unnatural. Many of them apply poorly, making you look orangey and patchy. Some are heavily fragranced and leave you smelling like a fake frangipani pina colada all day. Others are laced with unpleasant chemicals that you really don’t want to absorb through your skin.

Pestle & Mortar Glow Drops solve all these problems and give you the ideal beach glow without any of the tell-tale signs.

These beautiful drops come in the form of a clear hydrating serum that’s a dream to use. You mix a few drops into your favourite moisturiser and apply to your face. It’s that simple.

We love that they’re totally customisable. The number of drops you use determines how deep the colour goes. It’s totally up to you to determine the look you’d like. They work gradually so that you can build your chosen level of colour.

The drops are lightweight and silky smooth. They contain it ingredient Hyaluronic Acid and help keep your skin hydrated and radiant. They’re also free of alcohol, colour and fragrance.

Now you can bring on your natural glow without any complicated or messy routine.

Easy, safe and effective.

Key ingredients

This is a simple formulation with only a limited number of ingredients.

Dihydroxyacetone gradually provides  colour to your skin. When applied, it reacts with amino acids in the topmost layer of the skin and simulates a tan. Given its effect is limited to the surface of the skin, it’s safe and wears off after a number of days.

Sodium Hyaluronate is a form of Hyaluronic Acid. It attracts moisture to skin cells and helps hold it there. Sodium Hyaluronate reduces dehydration, eases irritation and visibly plumps the skin so it looks more youthful. Sodium Hyaluronate has a greater hydrating effect than High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid.

Glycerin is another humectant that can do wonders for all skin types. It draws moisture from the air and draws it into the skin. Glycerin mimics the skin’s own Natural Moisturising Factors, which get depleted as we get older. It also does a few other wonderful things. Glycerin soothes and protects the skin and makes it feel wonderfully soft and supple.

How to apply

Pestle & Mortar Glow Drops Review

All I can is WOW. These are unbelievable!

I have tried numerous face tans and they have always dried out my skin or caused me to break out in spots but not this one. It left my skin feeling so soft, with a lovely golden glow.

I use four drops at the start and then every second night I use two drops as a top-up.

I find I don’t need to wear makeup with this product but, on the rare occasion when I do, I need less makeup and my makeup just looks better. 

Also can we talk about the size – it’s 30ml and literally lasts forever.

I can tell you honestly [that] you will not regret purchasing this product.

This is best done in the morning to avoid any staining of your pillowcase.

Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
