We can’t let Mother’s Day pass without giving mom a little something to show our appreciation. Whether you are taking her out for a time at the spa, cooking her favourite dish, or just telling her you love her thiiiiis much, remember it’s the thought that counts!
For those who are still stumped, I have a few suggestions that might help!
Benefit has launched new lip balms to match their famous tints. In celebration of Mother’s day, Benefit Canada is hosting an Instagram contest for their Instagram followers. Up for grabs are two sets of all of their tints and balms! From now until May 12:
- Upload a pic of your mom or something awesome she’s done (e.g. Baked a cake, bought you a dress, ran a marathon!)
- Tag @BenefitCanada with the hashtag #MomsTheBalm to enter.
Guerlain Terracotta Sun Celebration Bronzing Powder & Blush ($80). For the makeup-loving mom, you can’t go wrong with Guerlain’s 30th anniversary edition of their Terracotta bronzing powder. This year’s edition contains two blushes (one coral and one orange), and it is absolutely divine. The wooden compact with an embossed golden metal plaque is absolutely exquisite.
Maison Martin Margiela Replica Lazy Sunday Morning ($100). For the new mom, let her sleep in this Sunday with this appropriately-named fragrance. When I spray this on, I get a lot of white musk, rose and lily of the valley notes. This clean floral fragrance evokes the memory of warm, sunlit rooms on lazy weekend mornings when you just want to lay in bed all day. Bonus points if you bring mom breakfast in bed. Notes: Aldehydes, Pear, Lily of the Valley, Iris, Rose Absolue, Orange Flower, White Musk, Indian Patchouli Oil, Ambrette Seeds Absolute.
Monogram Necklace by Indigo ($10). A thoughtful gift doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, and I love this monogram necklace in mom’s initial. It’s dainty, classy and timeless. You can’t go wrong.
RoC Retin-Ox Correxion 5 in 1 Skin Perfector BB Cream ($39). It’s amazing how much moms still get done despite the fact that they are so busy taking care of everyone else. What she needs is a multi-tasking product, like this new BB Cream with SPF 25 from RoC. It’s the only anti-aging BB Cream to contain Retinol. It promises to moisturize, brighten, smooth, fight fine lines and wrinkles, and fade dark spots. I’m actually gifting one to my mom to see what she thinks. Stay tuned for an appearance by Mama Geeks later.
How are you celebrating Mother’s Day with your mama?
