A Mother is your first friend, your best friend, your forever friend
With Mother’s Day approaching quickly I have popped together some gift ideas of some of my favourite products for the special women we celebrate and love!
Creme Du Loch Age Defying Daily Moisturiser*
Creme Du Loch are a luxury British skincare brand who use responsibly sourced ingredients in their beautiful anti-aging Creme including Scottish Kelp, Retinol and Essential Oils. The texture of the Creme is beautiful, it feels so rich and luxurious and blends into the skin beautifully, hydrating and soothing my skin at the end of a busy day! It has a delicate cucumber scent which comes from the essential oils which is refreshing and light.
Creme Du Loch Age Defying Daily Moisturiser (£55.00) available directly from Creme Du Loch.
Apothaka SOS Nail And Cuticle Recovery Oil
This lovely oil has worked wonders on my dry skin and nails (Thank you Winter!) instantly strengthening and conditioning them. It is applied using a rollerball which is efficient and mess free! The oil feels silky and has a light scent which I find refreshing. It is the perfect excuse to switch off for a couple of minutes each day and give our hands a little TLC! SOS Recovery Nail and Cuticle Oil (£19.50) available from Apothaka
My Julienne Brow Cushion*
I have never previously tried a brow cushion and love how easy it is to use and create natural, groomed brows. The cushion has two shades making it easy to achieve your preferred shade, I change how intense I like my brows to look on a regular basis! It comes with a double ended brush, a spoolie brush for grooming and a fine (and soft) angled brush which makes application easy and quick. The formula blends easily and looks natural, it is a fab price too!
Brow Cushion (£9.99) available from My Julienne UK.
Farm Girl by Sarah Jane The Saviour Sponge
I love it when life is made easy and fuss free! The Saviour Sponge is a non -toxic reusable makeup sponge, no more cotton wool worries! The microfibres expand once wet and remove makeup and dirt using just water. An environmentally friendly and economical alternative to cotton wool and wipes, perfect for everyday use and trouble it is the type of product I love!
The Saviour Sponge (£11.99 for one/£19.99 for a pair) available directly from Farm Girl by Sarah Jane.
IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream*
IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream is a beautiful full coverage base that is quick and easy to use, perfect for busy mornings! A buildable and easily blendable formula I can achieve a medium or full coverage finish in minutes. It leaves a beautiful natural look with a hint of radiance which stays in place all day. Containing SPF50 it is a lovely hydrating formula which feels comfortable to wear and is a must have in my makeup bag! Full review can be found here.
LL Loves Amelia Personailsed Love Heart Bracelet and Necklace
For my first Mother’s Day I received a personalised necklace and I have always treasured it, the memories attached to it always make me smile. The Love Heart Bracelet and Necklace (18 inches) are made from sterling silver, each comes with a heart charm which can be personalised to include up to four names. A lovely gift for a Mother, Nanny, Auntie or friend, a memory to be treasured.
Amelia Personalised Love Heart Bracelet or Necklace (£40.00 each) available from LL Loves.
Annabelle Minerals Rose and Lily Glow Blush*
I love soft blush to brighten me up and always enjoy the soft and natural finish you can achieve from mineral blushes. The mineral blushes from Annabelle Minerals are beautifully pigmented, a tiny amount creates a beautiful a natural flush of colour on the cheeks. I have always found mineral products work well with both liquid and powder foundations and these are no exception, once applied they blend beautifully and stay in place all day. I enjoy wearing Rose for a delicate hint of pink and Lily Glow to add a subtle hint of glow.
Lily Glow (£14.50) and Rose (£12.50) are available from Annabelle Minerals.
Code Beautiful Forget Fake Lashes (FFL) and Volumising Lengthening Mascara (VLM)*
I love a good mascara to make my eyes pop and give my lashes a good flutter! The pairing of Forget False Lashes and Volumising Lengthening Mascara leaves me with volumised lashes that still look natural. The wands are slim and separate my lashes easily avoiding any clumps which is always a win! The formula is easily buildable and does not smudge or flake as the day goes on. I have really sensitive eyes and they were not irritated at all. I use this duo daily and love how it opens up my eyes without looking too heavy – perfect for my favourite natural makeup look.
Forget Fake Lashes (£18.00) and Volumising Lengthening Mascara (Full Size £19.95, Mini £10.00) are available from Code Beautiful.
The English Mineral Makeup Company Fairy Godmother*
A real multitasker the Fairy Godmother can be used as an overnight treatment, primer and finishing veil. A soft translucent powder which leaves my skin with a subtle glow which stays in place all day. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft, a real night or daytime treat! The formula contains anti-oxidants, jojoba, green tea extract and rose-hip providing some nourishing and loving skincare. The Fairy Godmother is suitable for all skin types and tones. It comes beautifully packaged with a brush and keepsake fairy carriage charm adding some extra magic!
Fairy Godmother (£55.00) available from The English Mineral Makeup Company.
I hope you all have a lovely Mother’s day full of laughter and love!
