Mother’s Day falls on next Sunday, 12th May…
…and even though we shouldn’t need a designated day to let our mum’s know how much they mean to us, quite often picking up the phone or stopping in for a coffee can fall to the bottom of the to-do list. Sorry, mum!
With that in mind, you should probably get your skates on if you haven’t thought about picking up a little something special for your leading lady.
Here, we’ve pulled together a carefully curated edit of beauty buys we know your mum will love.
Fragrance is undeniably one of the most popular Mother’s Day gifts, and with good reason—there’s nothing like a new perfume, and the latest scent to join the Gucci Bloom line-up is the new Gucci Bloom Gocce Di Fiori EDT, which features notes of jasmine, tuberose and honeysuckle. Sweet but not too sweet, it’s both sophisticated and feminine. The Gucci Bloom fragrances are also designed to be worn as part of a ritual, and are now available in an extended collection of both body products, including a body cream and body oil, in addition to a hair mist that are also infused with the delicate scent, which will allow your mum to experience the art of fragrance layering.
Regardless of her skin type, we’re yet to meet anyone who doesn’t swear by this luxurious facial oil. Utilising the nourishing, reparative and healing benefits of La Mer’s famed Miracle Broth, plus antioxidant-rich lime tea concentrate, this rich but still lightweight formula works to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and boost firmness. It’s perfect for every season, but we love using it in Winter for an extra dose of hydration.
Renowned for their luxurious candles and undeniably chic glass packaging, Cire Trudon’s newest candle blends zesty notes of grapefruit, lemon and peach with fresh florals. Equal parts refreshing and chic, it’s the perfect addition to any candle collection.
Once we got over the beautiful packaging, we became instantly obsessed with Estée Lauder’s new Pure Color Envy Lip Care Collection, and we know your mum would be, too. Designed to be the ultimate care collection for your lips, the range includes a hard-working treatment, a gentle sugar scrub to slough away any dry, flaky skin, a rich balm and also a volumiser for a hydrated, plumped-up pout. We’ll take one of each, thanks.
CHANEL’s newest moisturiser hits counters today, and the luxurious formula is perfect for anyone looking for a fresh, luminous complexion—so basically every mother, and their daughters, too. With its key function to boost hydration levels, it’s infused with camellia floral water, the hero ingredient in CHANEL’s Hydra beauty range. Designed to trap and retain moisture levels in the skin, it’s also enriched with antioxidants to add a layer of protection against environmental aggressors.
