Pampering Gifts to Treat Your Amazing Mom this Mother’s Day

Your mom is amazing. She loves you, supports you, and always puts you first. She deserves a little ‘me’ time, and Mother’s Day is the perfect chance for you to spoil and pamper her. Our Beauty Advisors, many of whom are moms too, are sharing their favourite products for indulging in a little rest and relaxation, so you can find the perfect gift for you own mom this Mother’s Day.

 

Revlon MoistureStay Quick Heat Paraffin Bath

Mom shouldn’t just be pampered once a year. This paraffin bath from Revlon will treat her hands, elbows and feet to some TLC whenever she needs it. The warm bath uses thermal heat to ease stiff and aching joints, while removing dull dry surface skin to leave skin soft and beautiful.

 

Amope Pedi Perfect Pedicure Set

Gift mom everything she needs for the perfect pedicure. The Amope Pedi Perfect Pedicure Set comes with a rechargeable foot file, charging station, moisturizing foot cream, custom fit suction shower hook, and an Amope & Veet coupon booklet.

 

 

Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish & Top Coat

Pick out one of Essie’s new Gel Couture Nail Polishes in mom’s favourite colour, and pair it with a bottle of their Gel Couture Top Coat. The high performance nail polish comes in 42 beautiful shades and lasts for up to 14 days. Best of all, there’s no lamp needed: just apply the couture colour and top coat for impeccable gel-like shine.

 

 

Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Soapy Suds Body Wash + Bubbling Bath

This luxurious and sudsy body wash and bubble bath from Bliss is just what mom needs for some downtime. Attach a DIY coupon for a few hours of ‘me time’ so she can enjoy a little relaxation all to herself.

 

 

 

 

 

MaskerAide Beauty Rest’ore

These super hydrating Beauty Rest’ore sheet masks from MaskerAide are infused with Argan Oil, Super Fruit Extracts, Green Algae and Vitamin E, and will go to work right away restoring, regenerating and repairing the skin. Choose a selection of different MaskerAide masks to create your own special Mother’s Day gift basket, specialized depending on her skin’s needs.

 

 

Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia Eau de Parfum

Not sure what fragrance mom will like? Our Beauty Advisors recommend Giorgio Armani’s Acqua di Gioia. It’s a fresh aquatic scent that isn’t overpowering, and is ideal for the warm season ahead. Other Beauty Advisor favourites include Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium, Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria, and Lancôme Trésor.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, receive a $20 instant bonus with a minimum $100 purchase of luxury fragrances. Or shop these select fragrances, on sale for $21.99! These offers are valid May 12 to May 17, 2017 and are available in-store or online. Select brands are available at select stores, while quantities last.

 

Lancôme Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Overnight Serum-in-Mask

If you notice mom has been a little stressed lately, this serum-in-mask from Lancôme is the best way to treat her. Let her forget the stress, tension and fatigue built up over the course of the day with this dose of overnight intense facial hydration. The formula reduces the visible signs of stress and will give her skin a boost of radiance overnight.

 

Youngblood Minerals in the Mist – Relax

This facial mineral mist from Youngblood will give mom an instant feeling of relaxation, no matter where she is. Youngblood’s signature mineral blend with lavender, vanilla, ginger and lotus instantly rejuvenates, protects and hydrates the skin.

Makeup Essentials to Dazzle on the Holiday Party Circuit

The holidays are fast approaching, and with it comes party season! There will be plenty of opportunities to glam up your makeup look, between holiday entertaining with family and friends and office Christmas parties. ‘Tis the season to rock festive manicures, dramatic lipsticks and dazzling eye looks.

To help prep for the ever-growing list of social outings and soirées, Beauty Advisors from London Drugs have curated a list of the biggest beauty trends and colours that work best for the holidays.

 

Festive Nails
kiss-nailsessieYou can’t go wrong with the classics when it comes to holiday manicures, but try upgrading to a formula that will survive the Christmas party hop. Essie’s new 2-step Gel Couture luxurious wear formula lasts longer than the 12 Days of Christmas (up to 14 days, in fact). Essie’s Gel Couture in Hang up the Heels and Gala-Vanting are both beautiful classic shades that will match any holiday outfit.

Got a last minute party invite? Throw on a set of Kiss Gel Fantasy Ready-To-Wear Gel Nails in Faux Real for gorgeous nails in a pinch.

 

Sparkling Eyes

glitter-linerpaletteWith so many events and varying dress codes, London Drugs’ Beauty Advisors recommend an eyeshadow palette with a wide range of shades to adjust your look accordingly. A favourite is L’Oreal’s Colour Riche La Palette in Nude 1. With a selection of 10 neutral matte and shimmery shades, you can play your look up or down depending on the event. Creating a cat-eye with L’Oreal’s easy to use Superstar Eyeliner is the perfect way to amp up the look.

If a party calls for a little more sparkle, add a touch of glitter to the cat-eye. A long-time favourite is Lise Watier’s Eye Glitter Liner.

 

Holiday Face

highlighter

The easiest way to light up the room at any party is with a flawless glow. Our beauty experts suggest Makeup Revolution’s Vivid Baked Highlighter; it gives a beautiful shimmery golden glow to the cheekbones in just one sweep.

 

 

Holiday Lips

lip-paletteInvesting in a lip palette with a variety of shades will make switching up your look between parties that much easier. The L’Oreal Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Ruby Red has the perfect gradient of bright to deep reds that will compliment all of your holiday eye looks. For an extra trendy pout, London Drugs’ Beauty Advisors recommend applying a coat of Maybelline’s Lip Studio Shine Shot Lip Top Coat in Clear Vinyl over top.

 

Products to Last the Party Circuit

cargosetting-sprayTo make sure your makeup lasts from secret Santa exchange to cocktail hour, it’s worth adding these beauty products to your holiday makeup routine. Applying an eyeshadow primer prior to your eye makeup will ensure that the shadow (and your super glam glitter liner) don’t budge all night. Try the Cargo HD Picture Perfect Eye Shadow Primer: eyeshadow will appear more vivid and will be locked in place. Once makeup application is complete, don’t forget to mist your face with L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro Mist & Fix Makeup Extender Setting Spray. This spray will keep your makeup looking flawless all night long.
