Beauty for Mother's Day


The late Maya Angelou said, "To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power" International Women's Day just passed and this Sunday is Mothers Day. Like Valentines Day, here at brownbeauty, we love days that are set aside for showing love and appreciation to the people we love. Here is our round up of gifts we believe any mother would appreciate. We have previously reviewed products from Delilah Cosmetics, a brand born out of the desire to help women of all ages look and feel beautiful. Products like the Compact Powder Blush from their capsule collection would make an ideal gift. The luxurious looking packaging means no need for extra wrapping.

There is something motherly about the Crabtree & Evelyn Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed Hand Care Duo. I can just imagine it sitting in the bathroom and my mum sending me to go wash my hands and making sure I also cream it with the Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy. She will probably go into detail about its content like Shea Butter and Macadamia Nut saying it will soothe and moisturise my hands.

A mother's bag is like the one Mary Poppins carrys - the things you find inside would amaze you. The Burt's Bee Essential Collection is small enough to fit in the tiniest of bags and comes with a Beeswax Lip Balm, a Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and a Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream.

Italian brand L'Erbolario have a collection solely based on the Narcissus flowers which are apparently the first to bloom at the beginning of spring. What better would make a more perfect gift than a couple of products from the collection. The candle is highly perfumed with the inebriating fragrance of the Narcissus flower and burns for up to 16 hours. The cream talc from the collection combines the nourishing and moisturising factor of a cream with the refreshing and properties of talc to ensure skin stay beautiful.

The candle is priced at £13.00 and Cream Talc at £15.50.
