Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and you still haven’t gotten your mother anything? You’re not alone! I’m sure some people buy gifts at the very last minute! I’ve got a few beauty-related Mother’s Day gift ideas you can easily pick up in various stores near you (because obviously you won’t have enough time to purchase them online), and I’m sure she’ll appreciate it!
Here are five Mother’s Day beauty gift ideas for mommas out there who love makeup and skincare.
1. BEAUTY BLENDER ALL ABOUT FACE
AVAILABLE FROM: Sephora Australia (A$60)
Beauty blenders are now the “it” makeup tools, and since they now come in a variety of sizes, getting this set for your mom would be the perfect way to introduce her to it.
If you’re planning to make your purchases in Sephora, other gift sets I recommend are the Huda Beauty Huda’s Favorites 4 Liquid Matte Minis (A$59) if your mom loves lipsticks, the Kora Organics Daily Ritual Kit (A$45) if your mom loves oils and skincare, and the Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Paltte V2 (A$75) if your mom needs a do-it-all palette that contains eyeshadows for a variety of eye looks, blush, bronzer and highlighters.
2. CRABTREE & EVELYN ULTIMATE HAND CARE MEDLEY
AVAILABLE FROM: Crabtree & Evelyn (A$85)
My mom loves lotions and creams, and if your mom does too, this would be the perfect way to introduce her to the world of Crabtree & Evelyn fragrances. This box set contains a combination of 12 travel sized hand creams of their best-selling fragrances, perfectly sized to pop in the purse. As a bonus, they’re housed in a beautiful, luxuriously designed collectible tin.
Crabtree & Evelyn has a number of stores in Australia, and are also available from Myer.
3. DESIGNER BRANDS DAY DREAMER 10 PIECE BRUSH SET
AVAILABLE FROM: Various Chemists (A$29.99)
Super affordable, soft, cruelty free and vegan – these beautiful brushes from Designer Brands, or DB, is a great gift for women of all ages. The fact that it comes in a beautiful roll-up case is also a huge plus! DB can be found in various chemists or drugstores across Australia, but if you can’t find them, any makeup brush set would make a great gift because they’re so useful, especially if they come with a holder or a case!
If you’re looking for brushes in Priceline or chemists, I really like the Nude by Nature Essential Collection Brush Set (A$39.95) and the TBX Compact Makeup Brush Set (A$44.95) for something more travel-friendly.
4. ESSANO SKINCARE
AVAILABLE FROM: Priceline, Coles and Woolworths Australia (A$5.99 – A$34.99)
Certified organic and cruelty free, Essano is a New Zealand brand that delivers amazing results with their natural plant-based skincare, ranging from face, body and hair products. I personally love their Manuka Honey Body Lotion and Radiance Facial Oil the most, but if you’d like to gift your mother something from Essano, their gift sets are a great way to introduce them to the brand!
They’re very affordable, so you can get creative and create a personalized hamper for her, filled with gorgeous, pink Essano products!
5. USPA SOOTHING HYDRO MIST & HAND CREAM
AVAILABLE FROM: Various Spas and Beauty Clinics, Uspa (A$40)
For something more exclusive and luxurious, I recommend getting something from a Spa or a beauty clinic because brands in beauty clinics are very carefully selected.
Established in Melbourne, Uspa is dedicated to “pure, clean skincare that utilises the best of nature through science.” I personally have really been enjoying their Rose face mist and hand cream. They also come in a travel kit in the Soothing Pamper Duo kit! They smell and feel divine on the skin!
While you’re at a spa, go grab a gift card for your mom too. A spa gift card accompanied by one or two spa products is the perfect pamper gift for your mom!
