It’s getting closer and closer to that all-important day: Mother’s Day. In just a short time, mums will be waking up to runny eggs made by their ambitious-yet-hopeless kids, but still manage to be sincerely touched despite the tea having gone cold a good half hour ago. That’s the magic of mums, isn’t it? They’re proud of us no matter what, they love us unconditionally, and they’ve cared for us like no other. If you’re looking for the right way to reward your mum alongside a lot of love, hugs and failed attempts at cooking for her, you’re in the right place.
Cloud Nine is always a good gift idea, whether your mum wants pin straight hair or luscious curls, it has the means to make her dreams come true. My personal favourite is The Waving Wand, a matte black wand that creates anything from perfect curls to gentle waves in a snap. Cloud Nine products have built-in temperature control, a handy option that lets you find the ideal heat for your hair. They feature a mineral-infused coat, an innovation that not only protects the hair further, but leaves it looking freshly conditioned and smoother than ever. A nice little touch to top this off is the special glove included: it’ll keep your mum’s hands safe and sound, even if she does happen to be distracted by a sudden and dramatic emergency you have over a missing jumper. The Waving Wand also has a useful kickstand, so it can rest against any surface without damaging it. If that’s not enough, the wand turns itself off after thirty minutes if it hasn’t been used, which is especially useful when you’ve all finally managed to leave the house and inevitably start to wonder if it was left on.
The second great option for your mum (yes, I’m going to be giving you guys multiple, because I totally know how picky mums can be) is the Eye of Horus Award Winning Gift Box. Quite a mouthful, but so, so worth it. To begin with, Eye of Horus is a brand known for its attention to traditional beauty, incorporating many natural ingredients into their products (such as organic Moringa oil and beeswax), which ensures that sensitive eyes will not be bothered. This gift box includes the best of the brand: Goddess Pencil in Smokey Black, and Goddess Mascara in Black. The Goddess Pencil is a deep black, kohl eyeliner, both water- and smudge-proof, creamy and easy to apply with no parabens in sight. A personal favourite of mine, the Goddess Mascara is just as dark, free of clumping or smearing, with an hourglass brush that makes application an absolute dream. This duo comes in a custom Eye of Horus Gift Box, making it a limited edition – so don’t leave this one on the back-burner for too long.
Alpha H is a celebrated brand among everyone here at Beauty Bliss – and we imagine it will be with your mum, too. There’s nothing this brand doesn’t do excellently, whether it’s a cooling eye cream or a refreshing toner. With both the Vitamin Profiling Kit and The Essentials Collection, you’ll be spoiled for choice. The Vitamin Profiling Kit features four vitamin serums (A, B, C and E), with four different uses for flexibility and range.
- Vitamin A: a serum used only in the evenings, added into a nighttime routine to help firm the skin and prevent wrinkles.
- Vitamin B: all about moisture retention, naturally upping the amount of collagen and toning down any redness.
- Vitamin C: an antioxidant, known for its clarifying benefits and the radiance it brings, able to lighten pigmentation and improve complexions.
- Vitamin E: commonly known as “Vitamin ER,” is a repairing magician, its ability to help skin out of tough spots and heal itself unparalleled.
With these four in your mum’s skincare kit, she’ll have the means to tackle any issue she faces in that superhuman way only mums can. If mixing and matching isn’t her forte, however, The Essentials Collection is a safe fallback. It’s comprised of a Cleansing Balm, Hydration Concentrate, and Hydration Cream. To begin with, the balm is a four-in-one miracle, functioning as a cleanser, toner, make-up remover and balm, rich in essential fatty acids and rosehip oil. Next is the Hydration Concentrate, an oil honed from comforting plant oils that is made to help mature, dry and sun-damaged skin. Finally, we have the Hydration Cream, infused with sea minerals and youth-restoring peptides so it can keep skin feeling fresh and moisturized throughout the day. This set is a reliable option if you find yourself unable to choose despite all my lovely advice.
Let us know what you end up picking for your mum! All ideas are welcome below, because everyday is Mother’s Day in my world and I’m always on the hunt for what to get for her next. 😀
See you soon!
