It’s that time of the year where we get to celebrate our mums and all that they do. That’s right, it’s Mothers’ Day right around the corner and we’ve rounded up the best beauty, skincare and self-care gifts that she’ll love all year round.
Forget a bunch of flowers that will last days, and give mum a bouquet that will last years with Ellis Brooklyn’s Florist Eau De Parfum. Featuring the intoxicating scents of citrus florals such as tuberose, Italian bergamot, golden gardenia, honeysuckle and jasmine, Florist is a perfect posy that mum will love.
Skincare mums who love a bit of luxury will be over the moon with Pat McGrath Labs Divine Skin Rose 001 The Essence. A transformative bi-phase essence, this prooduct does double-duty to address dull, dehydrated skin and bring out the glow in an instant. Rose 001™ The Essence works instantly and over time to clinically boost moisture and help replenish the skin barrier. Skin is revitalised and perfectly prepared for flawless makeup application.
Charlotte’s iconic Magic Cream is finally available for body, and with the pair, your mum can be radiant from head to toe. Featuring her “Magic 8” oils and ingredients including hyaluronic acid, vitamins C and E and peptide complex, this stuff is known in the beauty world as the “fountain of youth”.
Glasshouse Fragrances’ Mother’s Day collection is giving me heart eyes this season. The fragrance of the moment is pink suede peony, a dreamy floral with hints of peony and rose. First Nations artist Rachael Sarra has created artwork for the collection that’s empowering and feminine on frosted pink glass. Gorgeous.
If your mum is as obsessed with candles as I am, then Circa’s limited edition Lily and Rosewood Soy Candle. White Lilies and sensual Rosewood are orchestrated within this deeply floral and warm fragrance. If you close your eyes for a moment, you can see the huge bouquet on a welcoming console at the entrance of your dream home. It’s another way to gift flowers that you don’t have to remember to water.
Specifically formulated for people aged 50 plus, GLOW AGELESS™ supports skin health and overall wellbeing because bodies require more skin, bone, thyroid and antioxidant support as we age. Great for mums who love skincare and self care, and can help with beauty from the inside out, promoting skin health and stimulates collagen production as we age and helping reduce tiredness and bolster immune system function.
A bio-fermented probiotic vegan collagen drink with vitamin C, which contributes to normal collagen formation, and zinc, which contributes to normal skin structure and the maintenance of healthy skin, hair and nails. With skin boosting papaya, pomegranate, gotu kola, queen garnet plum and organic goji, acai and maqui berries.
The most important part of anyone’s skincare routine is always sunscreen, sunscreen sunscreen and this Mother’s Day, Airydays have the most adorable gift sets.
This curated gift set includes two incredible physical SPF 50+ to complete your Airyday routine, by offering sun protection by day plus a pillow-proof Night Rain Sleep Mask for TLC at night, plus a cute-as-a-button pink neoprene pouch.
You know when you try to cleanse your face over the sink and all the water runs down your arms and goes everywhere? Not anymore! Thyself’s No Drip Wristbands are a game changer—soaking up every last drop of water for no more mess (and looking super cute while doing your skincare regimen). Mum will definitely thank you for this addition to her routine.
Add in a new daily moisturiser for mum, by gifting her Ole Henriksen’s Strength Trainer Peptide Boost, made with peptides, amino acids, ceramides and collagen that instantly doubles hydration, boosts elasticity and improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles, while also reinforcing her skin’s moisture barrier all day.
Makeup mums unite for this cute palette perfect for those on the go. Featuring rich mattes and metallic shimmers, Anastasia Beverly Hills Glam to Go Mini Palette delivers eight all-new rosy and neutral shades.
If your mum loves high quality products at affordable prices then look no further than Sephora Collection. This palette consists of blushes, a bronzer and a topper that your mum can mix and layer to her heart’s desire. Its creams and powders sculpt the face and enhances one’s facial features, while the glittery topper helps unlock an endless range of looks.
And while we are on face palettes, take a look at this beauty from Ciate London. Create the ultimate bronzed look with this multifunctional Brazilian Glow Eye & Face Palette. Treat your mum to effortless multidimensional radiance using a blend of the bronzing powder, blusher, highlighter and finish with the sheer glow face powder. In addition, there’s even three richly pigmented eyeshadow colours to finish the look.
Is there anything that screams luxury and self care more than a cosy pair of Ugg Express boots? I think not! Impress your mama with a little luxury thanks to the parker slippers. Made from the most premium Australian double-face sheepskin that is best known for its high breathability and luxurious softness, this pair features a foldable fluffy collar so you can wear them as slippers at home or fold the collars up to be a pair of stylish ankle boots.
Help your mum get her lush locks back with the Gisou The Hydrating Cleanse and Care Routine. This set features shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner & mask minis infused with honey to tame frizz, boost shine and deeply hydrate. Discover the ultimate cleaning and care hair routine to repair damage & fight frizz for visibly softer, shinier hair. Mirsalehi honey is a natural humectant that deeply hydrates and nourishes to restore hair’s natural moisture balance for stronger, healthier, shinier hair.
I never go a night without my Laneige Lip Sleep Mask and neither should your mum. This a little bit of luxury in a pot that is a global best-seller for a reason. Say goodbye to flaky lips and good morning to smooth lips while sealed in hydration.
I also pair my lip mask with this intensive overnight hydrating mask powered by pro-biotics complex that helps strengthen skin’s moisture barrier for a lively, well-rested appearance the next morning. This mask is powered by pro-biotics complex that fortifies the skin’s moisture barrier and boosts the brightness and clarity of tired skin. Tell your mum to just pop it on as the last step of her routine and wake up refreshed.
If you have the cash to splash on mum then I can’t recommend Australian perfume brand Goldfield and Banks enough. The brand blends native Australian scents with the expertise of French perfume making techniques for the ultimate sensory experience. Think highly concentrated scents, inspired by our country’s most beautiful landscapes.
Sunset Hour is a “heavenly elixir of citrus and spicy delights awaits, giving way to a deliciously gourmand and sensuous floral heart.”

Each kit contains a Purastat 5 Cleanser 30ml, an Extreme C 20 Vitamin C Serum 15ml, an Exfol L 15 Exfoliating Serum 15ml, and a Phytostat 9 Moisturiser 15g
