Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Beauty Edition
Mother’s are beautiful from the inside out. They devote themselves to their children and their families, tirelessly, and they love (almost) every second of it. Like most women, that doesn’t mean they aren’t addicted to beauty products. Whether it be a new fragrance, makeup, lotion or hair products, we are sure there it something that she loves. From a delectable new bottle of perfume to help her to smell even better, to some new makeup to help her feel ready to seize the day, we are sure you can find a gift here that will surprise and delight her.
Warm summer days and hot summer nights don’t call for a lot of makeup. Stock up on Lorac High Pigmented Lipgloss and Tantilizer Baked Bronzer and you may just have everything you need. A swipe here,a gloss there and she will be ready for whatever a busy summer with kids throws her way. These are perfect for the makeup loving Mom in your life.
Lorac offers the Tantilizer Baked Bronzer which can be used wet or dry and starts out as a cream that is then baked into a tiny terra cotta dish creating a completely refined, richly pigmented powder. This makes for a powder that will last you from sun up to sun down and give you that gorgeous summer glow! All it takes is one silky smooth application of this and she will be hooked. After giving yourself a wonderful glow, you can complete the look with Lorac Alter Ego Lipgloss. This lipgloss is highly pigmented, glossy and with a few touch ups can take you from your morning coffee through your weekly date night (kids not included!) Available in 16 colors, there is one to suit every style. This gloss has a delectable yet faint smell of vanilla and contains antioxidants such as Acai Berry, Pomegranate, Grape Seed Extract, and Vitamins C and E.

Using the world’s finest essential oils and plant botanicals they bring to the fragrance market a wonderful perfume, Fiori D’Arancio.

This Mother’s Day, give that special woman in your life the gift of gorgeous, radiant skin with some skin essential products from The Jojoba Company. The Jojoba Company has been creating all natural products for years that help promote healthy, strong and age defying skin- all naturally.
Our skin health is maintained by an oily (waxy) solution called sebum and 25-30% of the skin’s sebum is made up of wax esters. The primary role of wax esters is to hold moisture in the skin, which keeps skin looking and feeling firm. As we hit our early 20’s, our production of wax esters starts to decrease, allowing moisture to escape from skin cells, which begins the aging process of skin. The Jojoba plant is the only plant known to produce wax esters similar to those in our skin. Jojoba is naturally hypoallergenic and contains powerful antioxidants, Omega 6 & 9 fatty acids, and Vitamins A, D and E and when applied, our skin recognizes the jojoba as its own and will let it in to deliver active ingredients into the deeper layers of our skin.
If you are seeing the effects of aging skin (either brought on naturally or by the every day stresses of having kids!) the Jojoba line is for you. Two of our favorite products are the 100% Natural Australian Jojoba and the Intense Overnight Renewal Cream. The 100% Natural Australian Jojoba is a little jar of goodness that is made with 100% pure Jojoba and when applied, will immediately allow skin to feel firmer, look more radiant, smooth and overall brighter. It will visibly balance skin and being to smooth wrinkles over time. It can be used on your face mixed in your moisturizer, on your body, hair or nails too! Paired with this, is a powerful night-time cream that will do more for your skin while you sleep that you ever can imagine! The Intense Overnight Renewal Cream is packed with amazing ingredients such as CoQ10 for antioxidants, marine collagen for plumping, beta glucen to help stimulate collagen production and a slew of vitamins and minerals that will make your skin look and feel more rested, youthful and hydrated. Paired together, these two pack a powerful punch against the signs of aging on your skin and are a must have in any moms skin care arsenal.

Versa Style Iron from Rowenta
As moms, we can really find it hard to take any time for ourselves, let alone find the time to do our hair every morning. Luckily, the Rowenta Versa Style flat iron speeds up the process so you can easily fit it in your morning routine (we styled a full head of thick, wavy hair in ten minutes!). It reaches temperatures up to 400 degrees, and is ready to use within 30 seconds. This flat iron does the work of five salon tools – a flat iron, roller set, and 3 different kinds of curling irons, so one tool packs a punch and saves you precious storage space. If you buy one haircare tool this year, make it the Rowenta Versa Style iron, and you definitely won’t regret it!
You’ll be blown away with the soft shine that the Rowenta Versa Style gives your hair, and even more thrilled with how quickly you can get salon-quality styled hair at home. We have tried a wide variety of styling irons over the years, and this one knocked our socks off. Each of the 1-inch floating hot plates are boosted with tourmaline and ceramic coated, for non-damaging infrared ionic heat to give you smooth, frizz-free shine. The edges of each plate are rounded so that when creating curls or waves, it won’t leave the dreaded flat iron “dent.” You will never be so pleased with a haircare purchase – we never expected to love a flat iron so much, but we do, and wonder how we lived without it so long!

As moms, we don’t want to sacrifice great hair even though time spent in the salon chair is hit or miss these days. We still try to pull out the hair dryer and straightening iron to get our locks looking pre-kid fabulous. Every woman knows the damage that heat styling tools and hours spent at the playground under the hot sun can do to our hair. And it seems as though we’re always looking for the next best elixir to help prevent and heal a fried, dried, and frizzy head of hair.
This Mother’s Day, grab a bottle of Birchbox’s exclusive Protect & Oil by Beauty Protector for all the hair-obsessed mamas in your life (and don’t forget one for you)! Finally there’s a lightweight, dry hair oil out there that not only guards your hair against the heat and UV rays, but it feels great going on, with no stickiness, heaviness, or oily residue. Perfect for any hair type, the magical argan oil formula in Protect & Oil provides a nourishing, strengthening defense for all the stress your hair endures on a regular basis. Use everyday on either damp or dry hair to keep your strands looking glossy and smooth.
Bonus: Protect & Oil not only feels fantastic, but it smells like a day straight out of the Caribbean. Picture yourself this Mother’s Day with a pina colada in hand, laying under a palm tree, with the light scent of coconuts wafting from your hair with every gentle breeze.
