Treats for your mother for all budgets

Wednesday, 13th March, 2019 4:39pm

Mother’s Day isn’t too far away, and I thought that a gift guide for all budgets, including a supermarket favourite was in order. Of course, as always, I have included an Irish product that is under a tenner.

My favourite flowers are peonies and if you don’t want to splash out on a bunch, then why not buy a gift that harnesses the blooming science of peony extract in a tinted formula to smooth and brighten around the eyes instantly?

The latest addition to the iconic L’Oreal Age Perfect range, Rosy Eye Cream (€22.95) hydrates and brightens the appearance of stubborn dark circles, with blurring technology for fine lines and circles. Enriched with calcium B5, with fortifying properties, Rosy Eye restores skin density and tone.

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear has been an essential in women’s lives for more than 20 years. Long-lasting and comfortable, with instant full coverage, its formula has been continuously improving as it pushes the boundaries of perfection in its perpetual quest for the best possible way to respond to women’s needs.

The formula’s latest magic? To continue delivering Teint Idole Ultra Wear’s acclaimed benefits with a new light-coverage formula – a goal achieved through Teint Idole Ultra Wear Nude. Its weightless and breathable texture provides a second-skin finish together with maximum staying power. It's designed for the woman who wants a 'no makeup' look and needs an effective formula that works hard from dawn to dusk.

Teint Idole Ultra Wear Nude boasts a wide range of shades, with light matte coverage for up to 24 hours and a result that looks like your own skin. I loved wearing this as it felt weightless yet still offered me a good deal of redness correction as well as radiance.

The result is a natural look that requires minimal blending and virtually no top up. A true urban must-have, Teint Idole Ultra Wear Nude rises to all your challenges and resists the tests of daily life, such as temperature changes and oxidation caused by pollution.

As the formula is lightweight and matte, it would be a perfect foundation for women experiencing hot flushes too. The formula is ageless though.

Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum is an audacious and sensual fragrance. The trail is composed by the contrasted duo of lavender-vanilla, tattooed with sambac jasmine and sandal wood. The muse for the Bloom of Rose fragrance is mum Angelina Jolie. Floral and feminine, your mum could love the opulence of the bottle. From €55.

Many mums love a nice brow but perhaps struggle with a very defined one. Catrice Semi-Permanent Brow Mascara and Ultra Precise Brow Pencil (€3.50) is available in a range of shades, including blonde. It's a must for mums looking for a statement brow but at a fraction of the price; accurate, hair-like lines are no problem for the ultra-thin, automatic brow pencil including a brush. The pencil ensures perfectly defined brow arches with a waterproof and long-lasting texture. Regular use of the brow colourist will also gradually intensify the natural colour of the eyebrow hairs and the ultra-accurate spoolie brush perfectly brings the eyebrows into shape.

Aldi is expanding its Lacura Caviar range with the Caviar Illumination 3 Minute Mask, Anti-Age Eye Gel and Illumination Serum - set to hit stores just in time for Mother’s Day. So you can treat your mum to the five-star skincare she deserves, without spending a fortune. They are on sale from Sunday, 24 March.

Lacura Caviar Illumination Anti-Age Eye Gel (€5.99) provides lots of extra moisture and works on revitalising the whole eye area with its concentrated ingredient complex. Results? Eyes appear less tired and the skin appears firmer, smoother and younger with reduced puffiness and alleviated crow’s feet and dark circles.

Green Angel Organic Seaweed Soap is prepared using hand harvested Irish seaweed, picked from the pristine waters on Ireland's west coast and organic palm and coconut oils. The small sections of dried seaweed fronds visible in the soap gently and naturally exfoliate the skin unclogging pores helping problematic skin, leaving it soft and smooth.

For €6.95 it is a perfect budget gift for your mum and is great for travel. It smells beautifully natural and uplifting and is great for travel. Soaps are becoming ever more popular as we look to reduce waste.
