Is your mum a bougie queen? Has she done you a few big favours in the last 12 months? Whatever the reason, if you’re looking to splurge on your mum, we’re making life easy by rounding up the best luxury beauty treats you can make Mum’s day with this Mother’s Day. So, mark your calendar for Sunday, May 14th 2023, and start hunting for her perfect gift.
L’Occitane, Almond Shower Oil
Turn your mum’s morning shower into an indulgent experience — just in time for winter. The L’Occitane, Almond Shower Oil ($72) has a warm, nutty scent and transforms from an oil into a silky, luxuriant lather. Mum can consider it her in-shower body lotion.
Alpha-H, Melting Moments Cleansing Balm in Plum
With a sorbet texture, the Alpha-H, Melting Moment Cleansing Balm ($70) lives up to its name, dissolving impurities and makeup in one sweet sweep. This product can be used as an in-shower mask, with a gua-sha tool in front of her favourite “Midsomer Murders” ep or, as it was intended — to melt away the day. The limited edition Australian Davidson plum enriched formula has a soft berry scent that makes this treatment extra special.
Portrait of a Lady, Frederic Malle
Sophisticated, glamorous, opulent and feminine — if this describes your mum then “Portrait of a Lady” ($503) could be her new signature scent. Not your grandmother’s rose perfume, Perfumer Dominique Ropion blended Turkish rose with patchouli, raspberry, blackcurrant, cinnamon, clove, sandalwood, incense, benzoin and musk. It makes for a fragrance that is complex, compelling and powerful as the mother who wears it.
SŚAINT Parfum, Modus Vivendi
Cardamon, cedarwood, leather and musk make SŚAINT, Modus Vivendi ($169) smoky, sexy fragrance, perfect for the Mum who’d prefer a glass of whisky and a good book to a bunch of flowers. You can shop SŚAINT fragrances at The Iconic or have a custom Mother’s Day label via the SŚAINT website.
Dyson Corrale in Limited Edition Vinca Blue and Rose
Yes, it’s expensive but the Dyson Corral ($699) is one of the best hair straigtheners money can buy, delivering truly transformative results. What makes it so special? The Corrale uses flexing copper plates that gently shape and gather hair while smoothing the cuticle. The copper plates move with the hair, not against it. This translates to less hair breakage and the easiest curls-with-a-straightener you’ve ever experienced (this writer thought curling with a straightener was impossible until she tried it with the Corrale). For Mother’s Day, the Corrale is available in a stunning violet-blue and rose gold colour way that will take mum’s breath away and leave her hair looking #flawless.
Iles Formula, Signature Collection
When only the best will do for your mum’s hair, reach for Iles Formula. Founded by celebrity hairstylist Wendy Iles, Iles Formula was originally a private blend, offered to celebrity clientele experiencing hair disasters. Fortunately, the formula was taken to the general public and has won multiple awards. For hair that feels like spun silk, whether natural or colour treated to within an inch of its life, Iles Formula leaves locks beautifully smooth and soft. We recommend picking up the Signature Collection ($207) collection which includes the original Shampoo, Conditioner and Finishing Serum
Mum won’t be able to stop touching her hair.
Estee Lauder, Advanced Night Repair Serum
Advanced Night Repair is one of Estee Lauder’s most beloved products for a reason — it works for pretty much every skin tone. Oil-free and deeply hydrating Estee Lauder, Advanced Night Repair ($173) uses a peptide complex to increase collagen production and skin renewal. You can read more about it in our best night serums round up.
Lancôme, Absolue Oleo Serum
For a mum whose skin needs some TLC, Lancôme, Absolue Oleo Serum ($431) is an oil-in-serum hybrid potion packed with Lancome’s proprietary grand rose extracts. It nourishes the complexion while strengthening the skin barrier and soothing irritation. A perfect, cocooning winter treat for your mum.
YSL, Rouge Volupte Shine
What’s a luxury product roundup without one of these gorgeous golden bullets from YSL? The Rouge Volupte Shine ($65) lipstick range makes lips look good. That’s because each formula is comprised of 65% nourishing oils and anti-aging antioxidants like pomegranate extract. Supremely comforting and a delight to pull out of your handbag, it’s impossible to be disappointed by this gift.
By Terry, Ombre Blackstar
Easy breezy bronze the By Terry, Ombre Blackstar, Cream Eyeshadow in “Bronze Moon” ($62) is an exceptional option for the mum with zero time, who likes some no fuss, high impact beauty. It’s also great for someone who finds doing eye makeup without her spectacles tricky, Either way, she’ll get a buttery smooth metallic sheen in a waterproof, transfer resistant formula that lasts all day.
Giorgio Armani, Crema Nuda Tinted Cream
As skin ages, focusing on increasing luminosity and texture, rather than covering up should be your goal. Giorgio Armani, Crema Nuda Tinted Cream ($195) makes achieving this goal easy. The formula blends Giorgio Armani’s unparalleled foundation expertise (they brought us the category-defining Luminous Silk Foundation, after all) with a range of skincare benefits. This product creates a veil of coverage rather than a mask, blurring and softening blemishes and lines while improving overall skin condition.
