Whether you’re buying a special gift for your mum, mother-in-law, sister, aunt, or friend, these are the new beauty products that our beauty editor, who as a mum-of-five, hopes she’ll be treated to this Mother’s Day.
Comme des Jumelles Little Kiss Box, £9.99
This capsule skincare range is specifically designed for mothers and daughters to spend some time together while learning the basics of natural skincare. Founded by a mum of three daughters who wanted to share her skincare knowledge and products with her girls. So, if you’re looking for a thoughtful present that encourages some precious mother-and-daughter time, this makes for a unique gift. Remember, sharing is caring!
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Body Cream, £49
Inspired by her award-winning Magic Cream, Charlotte Tilbury MBE has been working with skincare experts and leading labs to create this new hydrating body cream for a radiant glow from head to toe! Infused with caffeine, hyaluronic acid and shea butter that adds a dose of hydration and a touch of magic to neglected bodies that need a little pick-me-up (quite literally!) All mums deserve to shine!
Nails Inc Mani Marker Pens, £5 each
Fake a professional mani and set your inner Picasso free with these innovative nail pens that let you create whatever design you fancy– with ease. Simply prep nails with a base coat, get doodling and then seal with a topcoat. If you’re stuck for inspiration, there’s even a QR code on the packaging for trending nail art tips or check out the nail trends everyone’s wearing. Available in six colourways. Genius!
Blink Brow Bar London Brow Tint Kit, £20
Trying to make time in your busy schedule to meet friends is almost impossible, let alone organising your monthly beauty treatments. Well, BBB, our go-to for fabulous brows and lashes, has launched a DIY at-home brow tint kit, which is nothing short of superb and a complete game changer for time-poor mums. It has everything you need to tint your brows at home confidently, comes in three shades, takes minutes to apply and lasts up to six weeks. We’re obsessed.
Neom You’re Amazing Limited Edition Scented Candle, £19
If you need reminding in between all the chaos and juggling, this dinky You’re Amazing candle says it all, and smells truly divine too. Created with the purest essential oils, including Ylang Ylang, Frankincense and Patchouli that has a calming effect on both mind and body. Definitely one to light when the kids arrive back from school. And breathe!
Trinny London Inner Light Eye2Eye, £18
These cream-based shadows are a range of four new ethereal shades. Inspired by self-love and positive energy, the pigment-rich and easy-to-blend shadows are the ultimate eye enhancer. It’s especially handy for busy mums who can use fast finger application for a cheat’s I-made-an-effort look, in a matter of minutes. Our favourite? Serenity – a warm dusky pink shade that works for both day and night.
Medik8 Crystal Retinal Ceramide Eye, £45 – £99 (depending on strength)
If crow’s feet are your anti-ageing bugbear, then you’re going to love this new ground-breaking eye cream that contains retinal (unusual for a product around the eye). Inspired by the brand’s original ground-breaking vitamin A facial serum Crystal Retinal, completely reinvented into a lightweight overnight eye cream with three variable strengths (3,6 and 10) to choose from. You’ll look rested, even when shattered – a must for all new mums!
Soapsmith Bath Soak Refill Pouches, £50 each
Carve out some me-time this Mother’s Day and hide away in the bathroom for an undisturbed soak in the tub. These refill pouches are the perfect accompaniment to every Soapsmith lover who can fill up their favourite glass jars with less waste. These whopping 1kg pouches come in the British brand’s best-selling signature scents, Camden, Bloomsbury, and Lavender Hill. Simply, fill your bath with the Dead Sea salt, coconut milk and essential oil combo and you’ll quickly forget about the chaos behind the bathroom door (especially if you’re wearing sound-cancelling headphones!)
