The perfect gifts for the mum that travels
Celebrate Mother’s Day this month with products that suit her travel style
If your mum is an avid traveller then we have the perfect gift guide for you. We’ve hand-picked the very best and most practical beauty gifts that she’ll love to use, according to her travel style.
The city slicker
Go for a glamorous gift that’ll keep her looking and smelling great while she’s hitting up her favourite shops.
1 / R+Co Park Ave Blow Out Balm can protect hair from heat styling for a smooth blow-dry, and will look incredibly pretty in her bathroom.
2 / Tom Ford Private Blend London EDP is filled with rich and spicy notes, and is a reflection of the busy British city.
3 / Captured in teensy ampoules that burst open, Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum can target skin texture and tone, along with fine lines and wrinkles.
The nature nomad
She’ll love these blooming gifts if a green adventure is more her style.
1 / You can’t go past Jurlique’s best-selling Rose Hand Cream for Mother’s Day. This year, gift her with the limited edition Handpicked 2017 version, which features a gorgeous print all over.
2 / Soothe skin with a layer of Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque, which can work in as little as five minutes.
3 / Pretty up your complexion in an instant by blending Burberry’s Spring Fashion Silk and Bloom Blush Palette onto cheeks. It may look dark in the compact however we think it’s the perfect shade to warm up light to olive skin tones.
The minimalist packer
Multitasking products with pared-back packaging? Tick and tick.
1 / Bobbi Brown Remedies Skin Moisture Solution Intense Rehydration Compound is formulated with a hyaluronic acid complex, which can intensely hydrate. To use, apply it all over on its own as a serum or add a few drops to your foundation for a sheerer formula.
2 / Dior Care & Dare Lipstick in Sweet Cherry fuses the impact of a lipstick and the intensely moisturising properties of a lip balm together in one bullet. We love this shade as it’s pink enough to look natural on your lips.
3 / You can’t go wrong with this two-in-one buy. Flip open La Prairie Eye and Lip Perfection à Porter to reveal an eye cream gel to keep delicate skin hydrated and a lip balm to keep dry skin at bay.
The resort regular
These tropical treats are perfect for the mum who loves to relax pool-side.
1 / It doesn’t get more lush than this. Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Assoluto EDP opens with spicy notes of pink peppercorn, followed by floral counterparts of red lily and jasmine, and finishes with grounding vanilla and sandalwood.
2 / CHANEL Rouge Coco Gloss in Amuse Bouche is almost like a party in a tube - it’s bright and glittery, and the colour looks just like a delicious cocktail.
3 / A swirl of Estée Lauder Limited Edition Illuminating Powder Gelée can accentuate cheekbones and eyelids, and makes skin look sun-kissed all over.
The active explorer
Make a splash with these buys that she’ll love using in the great outdoors.
1 / Sun protection daily is a non-negotiable, and Ultraceuticals SunActive SPF 50+ Face & Body Lotion is a water-resistant (up to four hours) buy that’s great for the adventurous mum.
2 / Like a morning ocean swim, Hermès Eau des Merveilles Bleu EDT is simply refreshing, and features a mix of sea spray, patchouli and woods.
3 / La Mer The Reparative Skin Tint SPF 30 gives a light coverage and even features La Mer’s signature Miracle Broth to nourish the skin on the go.
