In case you have forgotten, Mother’s Day is on Sunday. This very Sunday; the one that’s happening in a few days.
So if you did forget and need to head out tonight to get that last-minute gift, your favourite beauty editors and directors have some solid suggestions to get you in and out of the shops, present in tow, in under 20 minutes.
Chanel No.5 Parfum
Rationale Epinova Photosonic Facial
"This is more than just pampering. This 90-minute treatment is the perfect mix of hi-tech skin care combined with relaxing massage techniques to leave her skin glowing. I might need to book in for one while I’m there, too!" – Alex Noonan, Content Director, Beauty Crew
Jo Malone Body Crème in English Pear and Freesia
“If you tend to gift your mum a beautiful perfume or some comfy pajamas every year, this delightfully-scented body cream is the perfect present. The formula is thick and hydrates skin like a dream, and the floral scent is something every mum will love. Plus, a little luxury from Jo Malone will put in the good books for years.” – Carli Alman, Editor, Beauty Crew
Dior J’Adore EDT
“As an iteration of the original J’Adore, this must-have fragrance features an ethereal blend of Damascus rose, neroli and sandalwood, which will satisfy even the fussiest noses. My mum has an avid interest in timeless fragrances, so this newbie from Dior is the perfect thing to add to her ever-growing collection.” – Iantha Yu, Beauty Editor, Beauty Crew
Tom Ford Lip Color
“I’ll be spoiling my mum with a Tom Ford Lipstick – she’s stressed from a young age the power of a good lippie (which she has learnt from her own mum) so what better way to celebrate the practice than with a new Tom Ford one?” – Brittany Lane, News and Social Editor, Beauty Crew
Editions De Parfums By Frédéric Malle Portrait of a Lady EDP
“A perfume from Frederic Malle’s perfectly curated range of niche scents is always a good present. Give your Mum a bottle of the aptly named, Portrait of a Lady - it’s rose heavy yet totally modern. I also like to get a mani pedi with my Mum on Mother’s Day. It’s a nice treat that she wouldn’t do otherwise and a tad more budget-friendly.” – Dani Jackson, Beauty Editor, WHO
