Glow drops tutorial for a perfect face tan

Pestle & Mortar customers love the idea of a makeup free glow but worry that tanning drops might harm their skin. We created Glow Drops so that you can confidently choose a natural look over layers of makeup.

Alcohol-free and enriched with hyaluronic acid, Glow Drops give you a sun-kissed glow without drying your skin. Perfect for days when you want to go makeup free or create a natural no-makeup makeup look. In this post, we show you exactly how to use Glow Drops to get the glow you deserve!

THE BENEFITS

Glow Drops are customisable face-tanning drops that leave skin with a dewy tan, as light or as intense as you prefer. Always in favour of a less-is-more approach to beauty, Pestle & Mortar co-founder Sonia Deasy believes that the recent era of heavy foundations and complicated makeup routines is making way for a simpler and faster approach to being ‘ready for the day’:

In a nutshell, here’s what you get with Glow Drops:

– Effortless, even tanning.
– Customisable colour as light or dark as you prefer.
– Enriched with Hyaluronic Acid to boost hydration.
– Simple to use: add to your regular moisturiser or night oil.
– A dewy finish with no greasy residue.

GLOW DROPS HOW-TO

We all know someone who loves to flaunt a Summer glow all-year-round. Enter the Glowing Duo, the ultimate duo for natural sun-kissed skin.

Containing Hydrate Lightweight Moisturiser and Glow Drops Customisable Self-Tanning Drops, this kit delivers skin that is hydrated and glowing every day. Pestle & Mortar Glow Drops are alcohol-free and enriched with hyaluronic acid, which means you get an even tan without drying the skin. Your glow getter will love you for this kit.

HOW?
Mix 1-8 drops with your moisturiser or night oil and apply evenly to the face. Wash hands thoroughly after application.

1 – 2 drops = natural radiance
2 – 4 drops = sun-kissed glow
4 – 8 drops = golden glow

Yes, it really is that simple!

WHEN?
You can use Glow Drops whenever it suits you but we recommend using them at night so that you wake up with a sun-kissed natural glow.

WHAT HAPPENS?
Glow Drops work alongside your regular skincare products. Simply drop, mix, apply, and glow. The drops will develop into a streak-free, natural tan within hours of application. Because they are enriched with hyaluronic acid, you end up with a sun-kissed glow and soft, hydrated skin.

FOR BEST RESULTS
Any tanning product works best on clean, hydrated, properly prepped skin. We’re hoping that you have a consistent Pestle & Mortar routine going on, but we’re not judging you if you don’t!

Here are our top tips to get the best results with Glow Drops:
– Cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate so you start with a smooth and refined skin surface.
– Don’t apply Glow Drops around the eye area if you struggle with dark circles.
– Don’t use too much to start. The goal is to find your preferred natural look gradually.
– Use Glow Drops under makeup to hide imperfections and get a glowing start.
– Use Glow Drops on makeup free days to look naturally sun-kissed and fresh.
