The Sonic Facial Cleanser
This duo includes a nourishing face cleanser — which contains skin-soothing lavender flower extract — and a battery-powered brush that uses sonic pulses to cleanse and gently exfoliate skin for a brighter tone and smoother texture. And, BTW, the brush is water-resistant so that Mom can use it in the shower.
The Luxury Fragrance
If the mother figure in your life is looking for a fresh fragrance, consider this enticing one from Carolina Herrera. With top notes of redcurrant and lychee, a middle note of rose, and base notes of vetiver and vanilla, it works as a sophisticated everyday scent or for special nights out.
The Multi-Use Oils
For the mom who loves multitasking, this set includes a 1-ounce bottle of the buzzy brand’s Everyday Gloss Hair Oil — which works to tame frizz — and a travel-sized bottle of 100% pure macadamia oil, a superstar ingredient you can smooth through your strands or all over your skin.
The Cooling Facial
Encourage your mom to give herself some at-home facials with this kit: It includes a natural powder base of papaya, banana, turmeric, and aloe vera. You mix it with water, stick the base in the freezer, and it’ll mold into “beauty pops” after a few hours. The cold therapy combined with the superfood ingredients promises to exfoliate, eliminate puffiness, refine pores, and boost the skin’s natural glow.
The Soothing Sleep Mask
You can chill this gel-based sleep mask in the fridge to make it even more soothing to the skin. Consider it the ultimate beauty sleep essential for the mom you may have kept awake for too many years.
The Complete Skin Care Kit
The ultimate gift for a mom? A more streamlined and portable skin care routine. Fenty’s all-in-one offering includes a face cleanser, toner, sunscreen-slash-moisturizer, overnight gel cream, and a dreamy whipped body oil.
The Perfect Eyeshadow Palette
Any mom will have heart eyes upon unwrapping this eyeshadow palette from Charlotte Tilbury. It offers 12 matte and metallic pigments, all in soft pink and golden hues that are perfect for creating soft glam makeup looks.
The Body Tool
This handheld tool uses microcurrent technology, vibrations, heat, and LED light therapy to basically give you a luxe beauty treatment from the neck down. It has four different modes to smooth, lift, contour, and brighten skin. Pro tip? The warm mode mimics a hot stone massage by using heat to relax the muscles and the body and promote better sleep.
The Deluxe Hair Care Set
Not only does your mom get a gorgeous cosmetic bag (which comes in three colors), but this kit comes with travel-sized bottles of Balmain Hair Couture’s hair-zhuzhing formulas: its texturizing salt spray, an argan moisturizing elixir, and leave-in conditioner — complete with a matching velvet scrunchie.
The Body Scrub
Sometimes mothers forget to practice self-care. Well, remind yours that they deserve a luxe shower (or bath!) experience by gifting them this coconut oil-infused sugar scrub that offers gentle exfoliation. Bonus points for featuring Moroccan rose for a light, floral aroma that levels up the rinse sesh.
The Hair Hydrator
If your mother has been complaining about dry strands, then this handheld hair and scalp steamer might be just the thing they need. It’s a spa-like DIY treatment that helps refresh and hydrate strands in just a few minutes — and it’s perfect for textured hair.
The Moisturizing Beauty Sleep Buy
These cute mittens and socks feature a gel lining infused with hydrating grapeseed, olive, and jojoba oils designed to soothe dry and cracked skin when you wear them. The moisturizing mixture is activated by your body heat to slowly release the therapeutic oils and deliver smooth results — aka it’s your mom’s new favorite way to cozy up for a night of beautifying rest.
