A Year of Gratitude, Growth, and Giving

As we approach the end of the year, it’s time for reflection at Pestle & Mortar. We’re bubbling over with appreciation for the journey we’ve shared with our community, team, and customers!

In 2023, we expanded our sales, marketing, and operations teams to improve service to customers and stockists. New team members settled in fast, and brought new ideas, fresh perspective, and contagious energy to Pestle & Mortar HQ! We’re grateful for the diverse talents that have joined us, and super-excited about what the future holds.

As the year unfolded, our dedication to both our local community and sustainability initiatives remained at the forefront of our efforts. We were proud to support incredible organisations that align with our values and mission. Our customers are the heart of our brand, and this drives our commitment to delivering exceptional skincare, and also making a positive impact on the environment and community. We were delighted to support Repak in their mission to help businesses comply with Irish and EU Packaging Regulations, and play our part in reducing and recycling packaging waste.

Our Kildare Village store opened the door to many new relationships, and nurtured existing ones in the community. Nothing beats meeting our customers in person and hearing your skin stories – our Kildare Village store greeted many customers local, national, and international, both at events and in-store. And we’ve lots more excitement planned for 2024, so do pop in to say hello! 


Giving back to the community that supports us is always a joy and privilege. We are proud to champion local heroes like Newbridge Kildare Lyons ClubNewbridge Athletics Club, and Athgarvan GAA Club, organisations that are the lifeblood of our community.

This year has seen several successful launches that resonated with you. The Facial Cleanser found its place in the routines of those with sensitive skin, especially among younger users, while your overwhelming response to The Spot Dots shows no signs of stopping!


We loved injecting our festive gifting range with a pop of colour.  Design and heritage have always been an integral part of our brand. This year, we designed our Heroes Collection with inspiration from Indian art to make your gift-giving meaningful and special. Recognising your love for thoughtful gifting, we’re planning to enhance our range of gift options next year. Expect beautifully crafted and thoughtful products that embody the essence of giving!


Looking ahead to 2024, our excitement is sky-high with everything we have in store for you! Among the many surprises, there’s one particular launch that’s been a long time coming. It’s something you’ve been eagerly asking for, and we’ve listened. Get ready to embrace a product that promises to be your new daily essential – stay tuned, as we’re about to make your skincare routine shine!

And prepare for a delightful twist, because something unexpected is coming next year – a kiss of indulgence that will bring a smile to your face. We can’t wait to share it with you, but for now, you’ll have to wait.


As if all of that isn’t exciting enough, we’re also gearing up to unveil a small-batch skincare star designed to meet the unique needs of mature skin with the care and excellence you’ve come to expect from us.


As we say goodbye to a year of gratitude, growth, and giving, we want to extend our warmest holiday greetings to all. Thank you for being part of our journey in 2023. We look forward to another year filled with new experiences, shared moments, and skincare that helps you look and feel your best everyday.
