Glamity Jane

The perfect pressie for your mum

Irish mammies are known to be practical yet proud and it can be difficult to shop for them, especially for Mother’s Day.

Sometimes chocolates and flowers aren’t the ideal gift but something from a department store or pharmacy is always a welcome addition.

Mums, depending on their age, have different skin concerns so areas like the neck and chest need particular care.

Nimue ai Neck and Decollete (€134) provides lifting and firming benefits to one of the most stubborn areas to treat, whilst dramatically reducing wrinkle depth. The product is fed into the skin through a unique hybrid system. Nimue products are pure luxury and available in selected clinics.

If your mum adores a clean face and wants to up her cleansing ritual, she may be tempted to try something that will help remove dead skin for an at home facial.

Casmara Natural Peeling Tri-Active Cleanser (€40) is a state-of-the-art smart peeling product. It is an exfoliating gel which contains the synergic mix of two alpha hydroxyl acids (glycolic acid and lactic acid) and a beta hydroxyl acid (salicylic acid).

This product achieves a peeling recommended for perfect skin hygiene. It exerts an exfoliating action on three levels; the deepest given by the glycolic acid, an intermediate effect given by the lactic acid (larger molecule size), and a superficial effect given by salicylic acid (with the largest molecular size).

Time Defence Microdermabrasion Scrub from 3D Lipo Ireland (€50) is a powerful exfoliator enriched with medical grade aluminium oxide crystals. It's designed to gently remove the uppermost dead and damaged cells on the skins surface, resulting in a brighter and even complexion.

The size, shape and molecular structure of the crystals do not rupture or damage healthy living cells on the skin. The Time Defence Microdermabrasion Scrub is also enriched with red tea seaweed extract and hyaluronic acid which provides a soothing, anti-oxidant and moisture balance, to compensate for any moisture loss that occurs from mechanical exfoliation.

If your mum is a lover of Irish brands then why not treat her to some of the luxury from Jo Browne?

Facial Serum with Bamboo Extract & Elderberry (€35) is a hydrating, healing serum that contains bamboo extract and elderberry and is known as the miracle oil. Bamboo extract is a powerhouse ingredient that works to heal and regenerate the skin. Elderberry promotes skin health with anti-aging and free radical properties, while acting as a natural detoxifying agent for distressed and acne-prone skin, even healing old acne scars, eczema and psoriasis.

It also includes rosehip, evening primrose oil and is packed with vitamins A, D, E and omega 6 and organic camelia oils to hydrate the skin.

If you mum has unruly hair and loves a pamper, then pharmacy favourite OGX Renewing and Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo & Conditioner (€7.99) is a best-selling range that uses an ancient beauty secret ingredient to renew your hair. A precious blend infused with argan oil sourced straight from Morocco helps to protect, restore and strengthen leaving your hair lush, soft and shiny.

If she has fine hair, then her locks will be grateful for OGX Thick and Full and Biotin & Collagen Shampoo & Conditioner. Turn up the volume with this nutrient rich thickening formula. A fine hair must-have, the powerful blend of vitamin B7, biotin, collagen and hydrolysed wheat protein, helps with plumping even the skinniest strands to add body and shine.

Something new she may just adore is an iconic fragrance that's being revisited. Alien Fusion Eau de Parfum is an oriental floral spicy scent created by Fanny Bal and Dominique Ropion. Sambac jasmine, the signature ingredient, gives way to orange blossom (one of my favourite notes in fragrance) and surging notes of ginger and overdosed cinnamon. White amber and Madagascar vanilla make the fragrance sexy and very addictive.

Mugler is famed for his gourmand fragrance Angel which is decadent. This is however a beautiful floral oriental infusion. It is feminine and the bottle fiery and opulent. It is available in 30ml and 60ml and there is of course a male version, too.
