Mother’s Day Beauty Gifts

There are so many wonderful Mother’s Day gifts to consider this time of year.  I am a beauty blogger, so I usually give my mom and mother-in-law beauty gifts so that they can pamper themselves!

Below are some of my favorite skincare, bath and body and fragrances to give to her for Mother’s Day.  She will love to receive any of them!

Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare 2-Pc. Ageless Beauty Gift Set

Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare 2-Pc. Ageless Beauty Gift Set ($69 USD)  includes the Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Uplift + IR Defense Firming Neck & Décolleté Cream, a luxurious, fast-working cream that helps firm, smooth, brighten and rejuvenate the look of the delicate skin of the neck and chest, and Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Refocus Under Eye Treatment, a potent anti-aging serum infused with the brand’s proprietary Bio-Copper Complex that visibly reduces under-eye puffiness and dark circles.

20% of proceeds from each set sold go to Smile Train, the world’s largest cleft charity and a charity close to Christie’s heart. Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate. Smile Train provides training and funding to empower local doctors in 85+ developing countries to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery in their own communities.

What I think: I love this brand!  The products are so hydrating and efficacious.  They both sink into the skin, leaving it smooth and supple.  It is so important to treat eyes and neck, as both areas can really show age. This is a wonderful gift for mom, she will thank you!

EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 Pour Elle
EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 Pour Elle

EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 ($59 for 1.6 fl. oz. each) Pour Elle, a new female collection, will celebrate a new chapter for her with the three fragrances—Natural, Sparkling, and Elegant. Each of the three fragrances are united with a white floral heart of jasmine expertly blended with different ingredients to accentuate the different moods within the collection. The ultimate aim is to offer women a fragrance closet that allows them to match their scent to their lifestyle – whether it’s Sparkling for a night out, Elegant for a day at the tennis or Natural for a family gathering. EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 Pour Elle is true to both the LACOSTE brand heritage and its core values of innovation.

Sparkling fragrance notes: Red Apple, mandarin, blackberries, cotton candy accord, lily of the valley, vetyver, cashmere wood, and blackberries.

Natural fragrance notes: Pineapple, raspberries, wild rose, orris, jasmine, sandalwood, ambrox, and cream coconut.

Elegant fragrance notes: Citrus complex, pink pepper, cassis bud, violet, muguet, mimosa, vetyver, vanilla, and heliotrope.

These are so fun and smell amazing!  I have tried all three.  Elegant is my favorite.  I can really smell the citrus, violet (one of my favorite scents) and vanilla.  It is so bright and pretty.  Sparkling is sexy, you can pick out the blackberries and cashmere which makes it sultry.  Natural is fresh and sweet.  They are all amazing, Choose one for all of the special ladies in your life!

What I think:  I love this brand!  Their products smell so yummy!  This gift is perfect for any mom or lady in your life, because you can choose the Oil Slather (LOVE) and all three soaps.  I receive these to review for my honest opinion.  I was sent the slather in Rozilla vs. Dry Skinea, which is a combo of rose geranium and vanilla.  It smells incredible and is so hydrating, I love how soft and glowy it leaves my skin! It contains many wonderful oils such as grape seed, olive, coconut and sunflower.

The soaps are amazing, too.  They are beautiful as well as fragrant.  I received L’OATus which includes French Lavender & Oats, Beauty and the Beach Sweet Orange, Jasmine, Vanilla & Pumice Sand and Melrose-y Sunset  Rose Geranium, Rosewood, Litsea, Orange Wild, Jasmine & Argan Oil.  They are all natural and handmade in small batches with lots of love and only the finest ingredients.  This set is perfect for the lady who loves natural beauty.

HUGO Woman
HUGO Woman

HUGO Woman ($72 for 2.5 fl. oz.) — The HUGO Woman fragrance is for women who are independent and live their life on their own terms. A feminine, floral, fruity fragrance with an unexpected boyish twist. Notes of heady white lilies, crisp apples, subtly sweet peaches and berries are combined with black tea, creating a feeling of fresh sensuality. A hint of ocean air revitalizes the senses and strikes a perfect balance for the modern sophisticate.

What I think: I haven’t tried this one yet, but it sounds amazing.  The black tea notes sound really different and I love fruity scents. This would be perfect for a modern mom and anyone who loves unique fragrances.
