Mum’s the word

Being a Mother of two myself, there's something so special about Mother's Day.  My son last year aged 3 made a card for me. It was hand delivered of course, plastered with glitter, golden gems and scribbles – it was the best thing in the world.  I can imagine as my children get older the gifts will 'mature' to some degree, although I hope the handmade cards will continue to be a running theme.  


For those of you (and me included) who have often struggled to find the perfect Mother's Day – here is a 'guide' to some amazing beauty products amongst other gifts I have had the pleasure of trying out.  Enjoy!

Little Luxury

Nothing quite like this gorgeous Mother's Day gift.  I have tried it and loved it.  The limited edition Elemis Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules were launched as part of their exclusive anniversary collection.

The set contains the RE9 Advanced® Age-Defying Neck Cream, ArbonneCosmetics It’s a Long Story™ Mascara and the RE9 Advanced® Corrective Eye Crème. 


Tea Time

If Mum loves her loose tea then this is a must have.  Tell her to put her feet up and relax – these are really cute and work incredibly well.  Check out more from the Taylor Eye Witness Range here A4

Turn back the clock

Functionalab have produced a fabulous anti-aging range.  The AGE DEFENCE 30+ supplements RRP £30 work to maintain youthful looking skin & protect against signs of aging. Combined with FIRST SIGNS – ANTI-AGING CREAM RRP £70 which works by energizing skin cells and preventing the first signs of aging.  I tried both of these products and thought that they worked really well.  My skin felt less dry and more hydrated.  I would always advise anyone to ensure they drink plenty of water to get maximum results.  These products are available for womenn aged 40+ so they are perfect for Mum's of all ages.  Available to buy fromFunctionalab and Boots.A5

Once Epionce A Time 

Epionce Intensive Nourishing Cream is an ultra-rich, deeply moisturising, yet non-comedogenic reparative cream which also helps to reverse the signs of ageing. It uses botanical ingredients to deliver high-performance results.  This cream contains a unique cocktail of ingredients including apple, roship, potato and date which interestingly has the highest food source of antioxidant activity and proven to reducevisible wrinkles.  This cream feels beautiful on the skin and is available for £79 from Beauty-product-online



Botox in a Bottle

Forget the needles – BeautyLab Relax Neuropeptide serum is a quick absorbing and high performance serum that works as a muscle relaxant, designed to soften fine lines and wrinkles.  It's perfect for daily use.  I let my Mum try this as I am fortunate to not have any dreaded wrinkles as of yet.  She said she could feel her skin feel tighter and softer.  In fact, her wrinkles did look less evident (sorry Mum).  This serum is perfect for all skin types and available for just £45 from BeautyLab and Harvey Nichols.A7

Get the Glow 

Made by a Mum itself, Cocoa Brown 1 HOUR TAN by Marissa Carter, is a revolutionary and first-of-a-kind tanning formulation that develops into a beautiful, natural-looking tan in just 60mins. What better way for a Mother to spend 60mins of her free time than treating herself to that all important glow?  I personally loved this, no streaking, smells lovely and works within an hour.  Perfect for those spontaneous nights out and looked like a natural glowing tan.  Available to buy for a very reasonable £9.99A8


Makes perfect 'scents'

This is such a beautiful fragrance – L'Occitane en Provence are lauching their Neroli Ochidee fragrance on the the 7th March and it's a must buy for Mummy.  Fresh, zesty notes of orange and mandarin.  Yet behind the innocent introduction lies a richer facet of orange flower and playful notes that are resolutely floral.  A simply gorgeous frangrance and highly recommended.  Available to buy from 75ml for £49
