What is Love & Pebble?
Offering a range of skincare products, Love & Pebble claim to fame is their beauty pops -- thinks ice pops meets skincare! The kit comes with a mould and a powder-based face mask, made of "Musa spp (banana) powder fruit extract, Carica Papaya (papaya) powder fruit extract, Kasturi Manjal (wild turmeric) powder, Aloe Barbadenesis organic (aloe vera)". All you need to do is mix it with water and freeze it in the mould, resulting in an easy-to-use, cooling facemask.
As per the website -- "Enjoy the effects of professional cryotherapy in the comfort of your home with Love & Pebble's Beauty Pops. Simply mix our Glow superfood mask powder with water in the silicone molds and freeze! The globe shape of the Pops allows for easy massaging and melts into the contours of your face to provide maximum icing benefits, such as calming inflammation, decreasing puffiness, reducing acne, improving circulation, and tightening pores."
Who are the founders of Love & Pebble?
The husband-wife duo of Paul Tran and Lynda Truong are the founders behind Love & Pebble. On the brand's website, Truong explained that growing up she dealt with acne issues. Seeing that she could not avail of high-quality skincare products back then, she resorted to homemade options instead, which yielded positive results. As she explains it, this ultimately led to Love and Pebble.
"After many years of my DIY experiments, the knowledge from my husband Paul's pharmaceutical background, and 2 years of research & development, Love & Pebble launched the Beauty Pops in 2020." she explained. "The girl in the kitchen would have never believed that my fruit concoction would become a skincare product that would go viral on TikTok, be featured on the Today Show, and most importantly, reach so many people. I am truly grateful, and this inspires me to keep working to bring you more pure, affordable, and ethically made products with fewer, simple ingredients." she added.
What is the cost and where to buy?
Love & Pebble's Beauty Pops Ice Mask Kit retails for $46.00, complete with moulds and the mask mixture. You can also purchase these items separately -- the GLOW Beauty Pop (mask refill only) cost $29, while the ice mask tray costs $24.

So far, their customer reviews have been great too, as one review on the website reads -- "I really love this product. It feels great on the skin and I've seen such a difference in the discoloration and brightness of my skin. I've also always had a few lines on my forehead and this product is really doing wonders on them. Also, I have some pretty bad stretch marks on my stomach and they are almost gone thanks to this product!!"
Who will steal the deal?
