Give your mum something to treat herself with this Mother’s Day 2021! After all, she deserves it.
Unsure what to get your mum this year? With so many fascinating finds and interesting items available today, it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what your mum may want (or need) in her self-care routine. Our suggestion: learn what your mum loves to do best. This can give you a fantastic insight into what she may enjoy, and will ultimately give you the greatest advantage when shopping for that elusive perfect gift.
Does your mum love to look her best? For those mums who like to keep fit, Sisley’s Le Sculpteur is the perfect addition to their routine. Made in collaboration with the University of Paris, the Le Sculpteur body cream helps eliminate the appearance of cellulite while also making skin appear smoother and firmer—perfect for problem areas such as thighs, hips, or upper arms.
Everyone loves a good facial, but ever since the lockdowns of 2020, it’s been hard to find the opportunity to book an appointment. If your mum misses her self-care Sundays at the spa, consider getting her the Murad Vita-C Triple Exfoliating Facial. It’s an at-home miracle treatment that provides professional-grade care from the comforts of your own home. Made with gold-stabilised Vitamin C, this unique formulation promises gentle exfoliation for brighter, happier looking skin.
Introducing: Chanel’s Les Beiges Summer Light collection, the perfect beauty addition to your mum’s summer routine. Celebrating all the warmth and colour of the season, Chanel brings forth a bright and happy line for their Le Vernis nail polish collection. Glimmer, Sunlight, Golden Sand, and Solar all embody the shimmering hues of the beach at sunset: a wonderful reminder of trips to come.
Maison Francis Kurkdijan Paris brings our senses alive with three new scents from their Cologne forte collection. Bottled in yellow, the Aqua Vitae gives off whiffs of citrusy, floral notes made from Italian mandarins and Indian sandalwood. Meanwhile, the Aqua Universalis opens our olfactory senses to the musky aroma of Calabrian bergamot, intertwined with the sweetness of diaphanous white flowers, such as mock orange and sweet pea. Lastly, the Aqua Celestia, which marries bergamot with fruity notes of blackcurrant, raspberry, blackberry, and jasmine—the perfect scent to wear to a celebratory Mother’s Day picnic perhaps?
We love the beach, but we have to admit, it comes with its own set of drawbacks. Though the sand in your swimsuit may be annoying, the more dangerous thing to look out for is the harmful UV rays from the sun. If your mum is planning a beach trip sometime soon, consider getting her the Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution sunscreen. It has an SPF of 50 and is the first sunscreen to protect against 5 different kinds of pollutants namely atmospheric, indoor pollen, blue light, and photo-pollution (which consist of pollution and the sun’s UV rays). Get the best kind of sun protection available for your mum this summer—her skin will be sure to thank you!
Our hair is our crowning glory, or at least that’s what my mum always says. This Mother’s Day, treat your mum to L’Occitane’s new line of hair care products, all of which work hand in hand to give her locks strength and volume. Start with the shampoo, which strengthens and thickens the hair before proceeding on to their new conditioner to detangle and smoothen fine locks. Last, the scalp serum, to help the roots become stronger, for more voluminous tresses.
All mums have to multi-task, it’s part of being a parent! Thankfully, there’s the One-Step Correct Brightening Finishing Powder from stila, which works just as hard as she does. Formulated with vitamin E and ceramides, these nourishing, ultra-creamy powders come in three strategic colours: lavender to brighten, mint to reduce redness, and peach to cancel blue and purple shadows. Target specific beauty problems or swirl them all together to create a picture-perfect look this Mother’s Day!
Neal’s Yard Remedies presents its new Frankincense Intense Hydrating Essence to act as the necessary first step to any skincare or beauty routine. This wonderful essence preps the skin with a layer of hydration so that every step that comes after it is more easily absorbed. It plumps the skin with sodium hyaluronate and nourishes the skin with Boswellia sacra(frankincense) essential oil to create a self-care remedy that is both soothing and effective.
Acca Kappa will bring the art of scent into your mum’s home with their lovely line of ambient fragrances and candles. To all the mums who love to relax, this one is for you. Choose from four different scent combinations—from eucalyptus & oakmoss to blooming tuberose & vanilla to white fig & cedarwood and amber & sandalwood—and enjoy a tranquil day with just your senses (and these scents)!
The opulence of gold now comes in beautifully packaged skincare essentials with La Prairie’s new Pure Gold collection. Choose from, or avail of the entire collection of serum, moisturiser, and eye cream. La Prairie utilises the science of how gold behaves: its ability to release active ingredients on to the skin for a much more supple, glowing complexion—a perfect reminder of how much your mum deserves.
