Mother’s Day is coming up soon! Have you thought about what you might be doing or giving to your Mums on the 10th of May? I’ll be unfortunately interstate on that date but am thinking of taking Mum out to lunch when I’m back from South America. Some hand creams will also go down a treat.
Here are some new skin, hair, fragrance things that might be useful gifting ideas for 2015 Mother’s day.
(for dry, sensitive, skinned Mums this winter)
Trilogy Gentle Calming Serum (rrp $42.95) is a light hydrating formula that I find works well as an extra layer of moisture underneath my night cream, as well as a light day time moisturiser for the eye area. It is aloe vera based and includes extracts of plants used by Navajo Indians and Chinese medicine practitioners for their anti-inflammatory properties (I haven’t heard of these so I can’t comment on their properties).
Paula’s Choice Clinical Ultra-Rich Moisturiser (rrp $30)– combines rich shea butter, coconut oil, mango seed butter, squalene, and other botanicals to help keep dry skin hydrated. It’s a fairly rich formula, with a balm consistency – feels quite similar to Trilogy’s Ultra Hydrating Face Cream – and like the Trilogy product, it absorbs quite well without leaving an oily finish.
Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Night Cream (RRP: $36.95) Another range that targets mature, dry skin. The Night Cream By the way, there is a Mother’s Day promotion on the Wild Rose range- 20% off the range from the 11th April to the 10th May.
Sukin Hand and Nail Cream ($9.95) : I’ve been loving this hand cream for it’s hydrating and fast absorbing qualities- as well as it’s low irritant ingredients. I’ve purchased about 3 bottles of this already. Sukin is so good at making decent skincare affordable and accessible. I think it would be a nice budget friendly option that would go well in Mum’s handbag.
Molton Brown Beautiful Hands Gift Set ($45): released for Mother’s Day this year, the Beautiful Hands gift set contains 3 hand creams, each formulated with white truffle. There’s Orange and Bergamot, Gingerlily, Rhubarb and Rose. I was given the chance to try two of the three (pictured above), and they both feel hydrating and easily absorbed.
Keep reading after the jump!
Kevin Murphy Young Again Immortelle treatment oil ($49.95): this works as a heat protectant and a hydrating serum for damaged and ‘aged’ hair. Cuts blowdrying time too which is always a bonus!
Remington Silk Ceramic Hairdryer: ($99.95) One of the new products from Remington’s new line of hair styling products. There’s nothing quite like getting a brand new slick hair dryer with all the attachments- as good as a holiday. Almost.
All I want from my little boy is cuddles and headbutts
