Mothers Day Gift Guide – The Beauty Edit

Saturday, 7 March 2015

So Mum’s are the best right? They might drive us nuts sometimes but it’s only because they love us a little too much! Of course we should let them know we love them back EVERY day of the year but when their own special day comes round (March 15th), it is only right to make a bit of a fuss! 

Last week I introduced you to a lovely site where I found some lovely little homecare pieces I thought would be perfect for Mother’s Day, this week I have found the perfect gift set – high end skincare at a high street price. 

I have always known about Yves Rocher. As a little girl, I remember my Mum getting little parcels from them full of glamorous treats like beautifully scented skincare or stunning red lipsticks that made me yearn to be a grown up. So it feels only appropriate that my beauty selection this Mothers Day comes from them. I have done a little research and found out that there actually was a Mr Yves Rocher and he set up his company back in 1959, with the mantra of making beauty through plants accessible to all women. The company even has its own botanical garden in La Gacilly in France, where they grow more than 1100 species of plant for use in their products. The brand is truly global being sold in 88 countries worldwide, with more than 30 million customers. Impressive credentials!

The items I have chosen are the Serum Vegetal Day and Night Cream. This kit is on offer at the moment with both products AND the bag for around the £30 mark. But this isn’t a budget profit. I am fairly obsessed with skin care and I can tell you that these products contain only the highest quality ingredients for maximum results on the skin. 

First the Day Cream. Like all Yves Rocher products this light fluffy cream smells amaxing. It’s texture means it absorbs quickly and easily with no oily residue to mess with your make up. It does its job though, from the very first time you use it you will notice how comfortable your skin feels, healthy and hydrated. 

For me though, it is the Night Cream that is the hero product. A deliciously fragranced, rich cream that is so lovely to apply that I find myself looking forward to taking my makeup off each evening in the same way I look forward to whipping off my bra!!! The product is rich and deeply nourishing without feeling like it is going to suffocate your pores. And in the morning? Well you know that glowy, pumped up look you get after an expensive facial – well imagine waking up looking like that every morning ! 

Over the years I am sure your Mum has lost a lot of sleep over you one way or another, acquired a grey hair or two, maybe the odd fine line!!! Now that you have grown up a bit, isn’t it fitting you help her turn back the clock a bit, help to smooth out those fine lines and wrinkles. 

This beautiful set is available on the Yves Rocher website here or why not check out the full range of Yves Rocher products here.
