As an Irish owned and operated company, we really appreciate every customer that chooses to shop in Meaghers rather than on an international website or in a large chain of pharmacies who are owed by large corporations.

‘Every time you shop local and with a small business you are making a real difference to that business and to the team behind the business, supporting jobs and the Irish economy.’

Our little island is rich in natural resources, the best quality ingredients and most importantly expertise!

Pestle and Mortar is now an iconic Irish brand, the founder Sonia Deasey is an inspiration! The brand itself is rooted by Sonia’s Indian heritage in Natural Healing. For six generations, her family have practised as Medicine Men in India. Pestle and Mortar have a suite of products that are effective, cruelty free, clean and hero ingredients are included throughout the range but not repeated so you can layer the products without doubling up. Genius!

Pestle and Mortar pure Hyaluronic serum

The hero product from the range for me is the Pestle and Mortar pure Hyaluronic serum. Many have tried and no brand has succeeded in topping this product in terms of effectiveness, this silky non sticky formula contains 3 levels of molecular weights of HA, meaning that it provides distinct skin benefits. High molecular weight HA locks in moisture, Mid molecular weight HA provides hydration to mid-dermal layers, Low molecular weight HA penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate the body’s own HA production systems. The all-round skin hero for all skin types to boost hydration and plump up those signs of aging.

Superstar Retinol Night Oil

If you are concerned with the signs of ageing, perhaps fine lines and wrinkles, visible pores or dull uneven skin texture then Retinol is the ingredient that you need in your routine. Not all retinol products are created equal and many can be drying, irritating and cause flaking of the skin. Pestle and Mortar have formulated the incredible Superstar Retinol Night Oil that contains the wonder anti ageing ingredient formulated alongside cold pressed oils meaning that the skin is not only protected against the harsh side effects of retinol use but also benefits from the oils themselves. Cold pressed, Organic rosehip oil, carrot oil and sunflower oil are all excellent anti ageing oils. Together they stimulate cell growth and repair damaged skin. Steam distilled black cumin seed oil, pomegranate oil and jojoba oil will fend off free radicals keeping skin ageing at bay, resulting in a smooth revitalised complexion.

Pestle and Mortar Vitamin C Phase 2 Serum

You may be familiar with the benefits of including Vitamin C in our diets to help protect our cells agaist damage, help with energy and boost immunity but did you know that Vitamin C is also amazing for our skin cells? Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant meaning it helps protect our skin agaist the harmful free radicals that result in the signs of ageing, it also helps brighten and tighten the skin. Pestle and Mortar Vitamin C Phase 2 Serum combines 3 types of high- performance vitamin c to deliver visibly tighter and brighter skin and a smooth complexion. Vitamin C 2 phase serum is stored inside the bottle in 2 phases – an oil phase and a water phase. The innovative pump technology mixes the vitamin c-rich water phase with a super lightweight oil phase to produce one perfect dose of serum.

Pestle and Mortar Erase Balm

Double cleansing every evening is my top tip for healthy skin no matter the skin type or skin concern, a cleansed canvas means that your active ingredients can absorb effectively and all traces of the day are removed meaning less likelihood of clogged pores and dull skin. Pestle and Mortar Erase Balm is a little different to the traditional oil-based cleanser, you will notice your skin feeling super soft and clean without feeling greasy. The erase balm instantly calms, hydrates and refreshes skin, and the balm like consistency melts away makeup and any build-up of product or sweat on the skin. It contains a beautiful blend of natural oils such as grapeseed and lavender that deliver skin brightening benefits that give a glowing complexion and an anti-ageing cocktail of essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that soothes and protects the skin. The key with this cleanser is that it wont strip the skin of its natural oils and damage the protective barrier. It will take care of this barrier while effectively removing every bit of debris from the skin.

Pestle and Mortar renew cleanser

Once the skin is clear of any roadblocks caused by oil-based impurities, including makeup, sunscreen, sebum, and pollution it’s time to cleanse the skin for the second time. The second water-based cleanser can really work its way into the skin, removing the likes of grime, dead skin cells and sweat. It is at this stage when the pores are cleared and the skin is gently exfoliated. Pestle and Mortar renew cleanser is a natural non- foaming gel cleanser, what makes it special is that is does not dry the skin out leaving a tight feeling but will instead help it remain hydrated and illuminated. It is the natural fruit enzymes that is the star of the show in this product, blended with special ingredient superoxide dismutase this cleanser is a powerful free radical fighter which is excellent at protecting the skin against premature aging.
