Beauty Gift Guide: Mom

Moms are so good to us - who else cared for you as a tiny baby, still loved you when you were a bratty teen, and has always supported and loved you unconditionally? Yeah, that's what I thought. Now it's time to give her what she deserves a lovely gift for the holidays. My gift-buying style is as follows: get the recipient something they will love even if they don't know they want it, or something they would treat themselves to.

Skin Savvy Mom

$120 CellCeuticals Skin Treatment Kit

This is a perfect Mom gift. Everything she needs to have beautiful skin. If she is into skin care she will love this, it's a 60-day treatment kit with everything she needs. If she doesn't spend a lot on skin care and is a bit of a beauty dummy, this is still perfect. Trust me, she will be delighted to treat herself and feel like she is in a facial room at a spa every day. The kit has everything she needs: cleanser, skin treatments, moisturizer and more.

Forever Young Mom

$40 REN Anti-Aging Eye Cream

By now you probably know how I feel about eye cream: obsessed. This is a perfect one for mom (and feels free to borrow some for yourself). This eye cream will become a new favorite; let her say bye-bye to wrinkles, deep lines and crow feet. I use this product and it really does firm and moisturize the eye area. A mom with deep expression lines will definitely appreciate this.

$148 June Jacobs Age Defying Copper Complex
Your mom will go crazy for this complex. It increases cell turnover, promoting collagen and elastin, and, at an older age, moms will love this benefit. Her skin will be firm, no sagging over here.

Glamour Mom
$25 Mesmer-Eyes Mascara
If she wears a lot of make up or if she wears none, mascara is a must: the last step of beauty or the only step. This mascara is basically magic -  volume, length and curl, what else could you ask for in a mascara? The comb brush is fantastic and really separates each individual lash. (Comes in original and waterproof.)

$25 Instant Skin Porefector
The Vapour Instant Skin Porefector is does just that: instantly perfects skin. Mom will love this organic BB Cream. It moisturizes, primes and gives a colorless smooth foundation finish, so no silicone or chemicals on mom's face. 

Perfectly Glossed Kisses,


  1. Hmmm...Impressive products. I find them truly great gift ideas. I am going to pick my gift for my mom on these products.
