The Beauty Insider:

the best gifts for Mother’s Day    

If there’s one person in the world who deserves a special treat, then it has to be your mum – if only for those all-important brownie points. How to win her over? We’ve compiled our top luxurious beauty goodies to get your mum looking – and feeling – tip-top. 


La Prairie – Platinum Rare Cellular Life Lotion

Disclaimer: we can’t deny that this product is pretty pricey, but the latest skincare innovation from the Swiss skincare brand La Prairie, Platinum Rare Cellular Life-Lotion, promises bright, luminous skin – and that’s something any hardworking woman would appreciate (take it from us). Packed with antioxidants, it’s a skincare powerhouse as well as being a real treat to use.


Hourglass - exclusive ‘I Love’ lipstick

Can a woman have too many lipsticks? Nope. And as far as long-wearing and non-drying colour goes, nothing beats Hourglass’ Confessions lipstick. We love all the colours, but this vibrant pink in particular elicits a happy mood and is sure to earn dozens of compliments. 


Penhaligon's - The Ingénue Cousin Flora

Who wouldn’t love a fabulous new perfume – especially when it’s from Penhaligon’s, the masters of British perfumery. The latest addition to the brand’s Portraits line-up boasts a warming blend of musk, citrus and amber, while the charming golden bird cap will take pride of place on any dressing table.


La Mer – Hand Serum

If she’s into fancy hand creams (who isn't?), she’ll love La Mer’s rejuvenating hand serum. Made from heavy-duty hydrators – plus the brand’s iconic Miracle Broth – it leaves hands looking and feeling instantly softer, while fine lines and discolouration fade over time.


Nannette de Gaspé - Bain Noir Cannabis Sativa Bath Soak Treatment 

At the end of a busy day, taking a long, hot soak is a splurge in itself, but Nannette de Gaspé’s Bain Noir Bath Soak Treatment will make it the ultimate treat thanks to its unique blend of black pearl and cannabis sativa seed oil that’s as luxurious as it is relaxing.


Estée Lauder – Advanced Night Repair

Whether she’s already a serum superfan – or yet to try one – you can’t fail with Estée Lauder’s iconic Advanced Night Repair Serum, which is packed with powerful antioxidants that fight and reverse the signs of ageing. Dark circles and puffiness disappear, fine lines seem to fade, and suddenly the world is a better place.
