There’s one special day where we just can’t show our Moms enough love and that’s Mother’s Day. What’s even more difficult is deciding on what to get mom this year – a massage, a facial, makeup, the latest skincare tool – or what, all of it?!? We put together our top five beauty gifts that will suit even the pickiest of moms, and a little something for you, too!
For The Anti-Aging Mom
In the words of Cher, “…if I could turn back time…”, this FLAVO-C Serum by Isdinceutics ($84) is the anti-aging answer for mom. Full of Vitamin C and Gingko Biloba, these anti-oxidants are a powerful duo that works together to protect against free radicals of UVA, UVB and pollution that are harmful to the skin. Lines are diminished and skin is brightened with this Vitamin C-boosting product.
For The Spa Enthusiast Mom
Send your mom to the spa but join her at Burke Williams with their For Two: A Special Mother/Daughter Experience ($299 – a $378 value!). You and mom can both experience a Passion Fruit and Agave Pedicure plus your choice of a 50 minute massage or facial. Now, that’s some quality beauty time!
For The Outdoor Athletic Mom
While she likes to workout, she might be the kind who still fancies wearing a little bit of makeup before she steps out for a run or goes on a hike. One of the most important things to remember when going out in the sun is sunscreen and now it’s so easy to apply with Kate Somerville’s UncompliKated SPF Soft Focus Makeup Setting Spray ($38). Apply to the face using the fine-misting aerosol spray and watch it set your makeup in place leaving a lovely matte finish. Plus, it contains an SPF50 which is perfect for those sunny days.
For The Mom Who Raids Your Makeup Bag
You know the type, she loves whatever you’re wearing and wants to wear it too. So, instead of lending your latest lip gloss to her, give her the newest shades of Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil ($26) in Candy and Tangerine (both developed to react to the pH of your lips for a customized color), Mint for an icy-fresh clear effect, and Honey Glam for a glimmer of shimmer.
For The De-Stressed Mom
Inhaling lavender is key to relieving stress and anxiety in life. The L’OCCITANE Relaxing Lavender Spa Collection ($75) is the perfect answer to helping mom stay calm. This kit includes everything she needs – from foaming bath and candle to a sachet and soap – to enjoy a long, hot bath and help her forget all about your bratty teenage years.
