Mother's Day Treats

This Sunday is Mother’s Day in the UK and over the next 6-8 weeks it will be celebrated all around the world, so I thought I would share some of my favourite gift ideas that are around at the moment. I've picked things from all price points that are perfect for spoiling all of the lovely mums (and Grandmas) out there. New mums may also like to treat themselves!

Under £10.00 & $10.00

I love Burt’s Bees lip balms and this cute little Mini Collection £5.99 ($9.88) in its colourful tin also comes with a hand salve and cuticle cream, perfect for popping into make-up bags or for travelling. I don’t think there’s anyone who wouldn’t love this and find it useful! 

My mum, who's a big lipstick lover, has recently taken to using chubby stick style lip pencils. The moisturising, balmy feel and sheer to medium pay off make it easier to wear bright colours without any fuss or fear of feathering and they feel so hydrating on the lips. Revlon Colourburst Balm Stain  £7.99 ($8.99) comes in 6-10 (depending where you are in the world) great shades.

For the Zelens - Resurfacing Facial Pads a good cheaper alternative is Neutrogena's Rapid Clear Treatment Pads

For Kiehl’s - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado a great alternative is Boots Botanics - 80% Organic Hydrating Eye Cream

For Eve Lom Cleanser a cheaper alternative is Boots Botanics - 97% Organic Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm

Lighten Up! It's time for a foundation refresh!

Depending where you are in the world, you may have noticed that for many of us spring is finally here. The mornings are getting lighter, the evenings brighter and the temperature is slowly starting to rise. Time to hit the foundation refresh button!...
