To me, Mother’s day is all about spring, life, love, and expression of gratitude. We often take moms’ love, life, and energy for granted, so Mother’s Day is a great day to shower her with kisses and hugs and endless love!
I love giving a pampering experience to my mom, sister, and my girlfriends on Mother’s Day, and this gift guide includes all my absolutely favorite beauty products that add a little bit of luxury to my favorite mamas’ lives. I paired them by categories, and you can put together these goodies in one beautiful basket or you can give them individually, depending on your budget and her interests. But either way, I absolutely LOVE all of them.
10 Beauty Gift Ideas
Drunk Elephant Oil and B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel ~ Drunk Elephant is a new brand to me. Perhaps because of its simple and refreshing packaging, I thought that Drunk Elephant was more for a younger skin. But after I tried their oil and this intensive hydration gel, I was hooked. Love the quality and how they feel on my skin. Soft and lightweight, and scentless.
Slip Silk Pillowcase ~ For a stomach sleeper like me, this pillowcase is a savior! Every morning, with no exception, I would wake up with creases on my cheeks, so discovering this Silk Pillowcase was so exciting. I don’t wake up with creases on my cheeks and my face skin feels soft and luxurious…
Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 and St. Topez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse ~ Summer is approaching fast mamas, and SPF mixed into your moisturizer or foundation is not enough. This sunscreen is 47SPF, made of natural ingredients, and smells and feels amazing. As to St.Topaz self tanning mousse, tanning my white legs and arms is a great way to get a toned and pampered look. I love how it gives me instant results!!
Beach Perfume ~ Scents are very personal and wear on people differently, but if you love beach cities where the fresh air is mixed with the scent of salty ocean and sunscreen lotions, then you should give it a try. It is my go to fragrance during summers, especially on weekdays, when I sit in the office and secretly smell my wrist and dream of beaches.
Becca Backlight Filter Face Primer ~ Nothing says happy and healthy mama more than a smile and glowing skin. And there is certainly no shortage of illuminators in stores now. This Hourglass illuminator can be worn under and on top of make up, or both for an extra glow! It is not shimmery or too shiny, it is just right for healthy glowing looking skin. GlamGlow GravityMud Firming Treatment ~ is also quite fun. It changes color from white to chrome as you apply it to your face and it peels off leaving your skin tighten and illuminated, just enough to shine through foundation. Love this mask.
Elephant Body Whip Cream ~ Moisturizing my body always gets neglected. I mean, I brush my teeth, I shower, I put face cream on, and then I am suddenly out of time. I try to make moisturizing my body a part of my beauty routine. I mean, it’s just another minute! But I usually end up skipping it. This moisturizer is one I can get rebind and apply without forgetting. And body whip creams always feel luxurious too.
Sheet Face Masks ~ Last but certainly not least. You know how much i LOVE sheet face masks! I love Sephora, Dr. Jart, and Boscha sheet face masks, and usually go for hydrating, contouring, and brightening. Also, recently I found these new Dr. Jart deeply hydrating sheet masks that you keep on for 30 minutes. Exciting!! After the dry winter months my skin is thirsty and needs deep hydration more than ever!
And here’s why I think my mom is a hero. She dedicated her life to the prosperity of her family and gave the gift of freedom and opportunities to my sister and I and our families by leaving behind everything she ever knew and immigrating across the ocean to the United States. And for that I am grateful forever.
With love always,
