The Mother of Pearl - 50ml


Reduces white powdery residue from SPF
Add to any moisturiser
A natural glow, for the whole body!

Go foundation free and shield your skin from environmental stressors such as pollution and free radicals!  If you’re tired of white residue from mineral SPF, add a drop of Mother Of Pearl to any moisturiser for a bronzed, dewy glow, before you apply your sunscreen. This magical bronzing serum transforms any sunscreen into a flattering shade. Simply add a drop (or more) to your moisturiser, then apply your SPF. Embrace a flawless, natural glow, and watch the bronzed pigments shine through.

Amy says...

"I just love a dewy glow but what I don't love is the slightly white residue from SPF - so I'm thrilled to have discovered this product! Try mixing it with body oil or cream across the collarbone and shoulders for a healthy summer glow. It's the perfect team mate for MOTHER SPF30."


Add a TINY drop to your skincare or makeup routine for a gorgeous glow. This formula is HIGHLY concentrated and has been designed to mix in with your skincare. 

TIP for the face: Apply moisturiser to the back of your hand and add 1 drop of MOTHER OF PEARL. Swirl it together with a foundation brush or your fingers and apply all over the face. It's recommended to apply a little extra onto the cheekbones for some cheek bone definition.

TIP for the face: Apply a little bit of oil to your body (arms/legs/collarbone) and then combine MOTHER OF PEARL in little drops along your arms/legs and collarbone.

European glow

Being fair skinned I always look for ways to protect my skin from sun damage. This means that unfortunately I rarely have the opportunity to get a sun kissed glow! Since arriving back from Europe and ordering my Mother of Pearl drops, I’ve been able to achieve that healthy outdoor glow! I’ve been applying my Mother of Pearl drops to my moisturiser, followed up with an application of the sunscreen and outside I go. No need for foundation or powder. I love it! Cheers Sue

Mother of Pearl

Love this product.
I have vitiligo and this product helps covers the white patches on my face.
It is so much better than using heavy foundation.
Thank you so much for Moyher of Pearl.

Thank you so much for your review Terri, isn't it a great product - and yes, a fab alternative to heavier foundation, especially in summer. Amy x
