What I am giving my Mom for Mother’s Day …
While I am sure it has been extremely rewarding to be my mother (please note my sarcasm), I am sure it wasn’t always flowers, rainbows and kittens. It has probably been pretty exhausting, actually. It is a job at which you work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for the rest of your life. Moms sure do deserve a day, if not an entire month, dedicated to them.
My mom has been incredibly supportive over the years. She is my biggest cheerleader and my most trusted advisor and confidante. When I was unsure about venturing into Bare Beauty territory, she had not a doubt in her mind that it was something I that I should throw myself into, not just try it out on the side.
My girlfriends who live around the corner have been receiving product samples here and there so I can review products that aren’t “for me”. I hope she doesn’t get mad at me for telling you this, but my mom was like, “I wish I lived closer, I want to test samples!” It’s so funny and universal; women are product junkies and everyone loves free stuff. So, Mom, I am sending you a basket of goodies.
Charleston Naturally is offering 25% off everything on their site in honor of Mother’s Day, so everyone should stock up and give, give, give! Just enter the promo code MDAY at checkout.
Erbaviva was founded as a mommy-baby product line, but honestly, their offerings are so wonderful and clean, I think it makes a prefect gift for all moms. I am going to send my mom their “Relax” aromatherapy body wash and lotion, as well as the body oil. Adding body oil to a hot bath is pure luxury. And you don’t have to moisturize when you get out! Cost: about $17 each. Purchase here
DR. HAUSCHKA HAND CREAM
What mom doesn’t need hand cream? Most of us only buy inexpensive hand cream for ourselves. Take this opportunity to give her the good stuff! This one from Dr. Hauschka is super-moisturizing without being greasy. Cost: about $25. Purchase it here.
SUKI COMPLETE CARE FOR YOUTHFUL SKIN – AGE CORRECTING TRAVEL KIT
This anti-aging kit from Suki will allow my mom to try out multiple products to see if she likes them, which I am sure she will! Each product helps firm, tone, tighten, and nourish skin. The kit includes cream cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and a mask as well as two other Suki samples. Cost: about $30. Purchase it here.
100% PURE FRUIT PIGMENTED LIP BUTTER AND LIP GLAZE
Aren’t we all always looking for a good lip product that delivers just the right amount of color? 100% Pure lip butters and glazes offer a wash of color along with vitamins and all-natural moisturizers like avocado and cocoa butters. A no-brainer. Cost: about $15 each. Purchase them here.
I hope you all have a fabulous Mother’s Day weekend! Next week I’ll be reviewing Clean self-tanners (by popular request) as well as facial cleansers, eye cream, and more! Stay tuned!
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! I love you!
