It has sold out five times internationally in 12 months.
Skincare is having a moment.
So enormous is this moment that small Irish businesses which sell high-quality products are experiencing such tremendous sales that they can't keep products in stock.
Pestle & Mortar is an Irish skincare brand that has expanded at an exponential rate since its launch four years ago. Owners and co-founders, Sonia and Padraic Deasy – whose business in Newbridge, County Kildare was once the location of their family photography business – boast unrivalled success in that their most popular product has sold out five times in the past 12 months.
And each time Pestle & Mortar’s Pure Hyaluronic Serum (€43 for 30ml) does sell out, a wait list of around 35,000 people amasses waiting for it to be re-stocked.
Described as 'the ultimate multi-tasker for your skin,' the smooth concentrate targets fine lines, dullness and dehydration restoring a healthy glow, plumpness, and radiance.
Stella Maxwell's make-up artist – as well as a whole other host of celebrities – swears by the hyaluronic serum to create the best skin for their clients. And, the skincare line in general, is the toast of the beauty world having racked up positive notices in Vanity Fair, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Allure and more.
While prices may be on the more high-end side, Pestle & Mortar's products work and will last you for months.
You can also justify the spend when you tell yourself that your money is going to a grassroots Irish company which just aims to provide the best.
