Happy Tuesday Beautiful!
I hope you’re all enjoying this time year as much as I am.  Even when it’s a bit damp or rainy, I’m thankful that the blustery cold weather seems to be gone for good.  Last week, I discussed the importance of protecting your skin from sun damage.  Today, I wanted to change gears, seeing as Mother’s Day is less than a week away.  Though it’s always a lovely day to spend time with your family, it can be stressful to find something to give your mom that expresses your gratitude for her.  Moms are often the backbone of the family unit, making sure everything runs smoothly and guiding you every step of the way.  Of course, a gift can never fully express your love for your mother, but it is a little way to show her that you were thinking of her.  That’s why I decided to put together a little gift guide for Mother’s Day so that you can find something for your mom to show her that you care.  Additionally, from now until Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14th, I’m giving my loyal subscribers 15% off your order on my website.  Just use the code: “best mom”
Black Currant Serum
If you’re looking to gift something indulgent and luxurious for your mom, I recommend my best-selling Black Currant Serum.  One drop of this serum will transform your mom’s skin.  This celebrity favorite daily serum is designed to nourish and revive skin due to it’s high levels of phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids, which are the foundation to boosting collagen, elasticity and bringing life back to the complexion.  Your mom’s skin will emerge calm, healthy and glowing thanks to this proprietary blend of 12 precious, skin-nutrifying oils, enrich skin with the right balance of nutrients.
Alchimie Forever Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask
If you’re looking for something that will help your mom’s skin glow from the inside out, I recommend Alchimie Forever’s Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask.  This luscious, creamy mask loved by beauty editors is packed with natural botanicals to soothe, protect, and brighten dull skin.  Oats, known for their softening properties, are combined with wild pansies to speed the recovery of distressed skin and calm irritation, while resveratrol from grape extract protects the skin from environmental stress.  As I’ve mentioned before, my favorite thing about this mask is it’s yummy scent.  It smells like a delightful blueberry smoothie because it utilizes potent European blueberries in order to reduce the appearance of facial redness.  After using this mask, your mom’s skin will be bright and glowy like never before.
Rose Serum Spray 
If your mom loves roses and is looking to enhance her skin with little to no effort, I recommend my Rose Serum Spray.  With just one spritz, your mom will experience the divine scent of a lush rose garden, while rose oils and hyaluronic acid plump up fine lines, boost elasticity and restore “bounce” to skin.  Steeped in a concentrate of Bulgarian and French rose petals, this mist is so packed with nutrients and antioxidants, it had to called a “serum spray.”  Probiotics + natural fruit acids refine dull complexions into supple, cashmere-like skin. This luxurious mist targets sun damage and dryness with a quenching veil of droplets that act as an extra water reservoir for skin to drink from; enhancing the power of your skincare regimen when serum or moisturizer is applied on top.  Your mom will love the fact that a midday spray can uplift her spirit and enhance her skin.

A Gift Certificate for a Pampering Spa Service

Finally, if skincare products aren’t your mom’s cup of tea, I recommend getting her a gift certificate for a pampering service.  If you’re located locally, I recommend a gift certificate for my ultra indulgent Lift and Shine Facial, a favorite amongst my celebrity clients.  The Lift and Shine is an idyllic combination of Microcurrent facial and LED light treatment, which stimulates circulation and combat aging.  Your mom will feel like a celebrity for the day and will experience immediate and long term results in the form of tightened, plump and youthful skin.

Another great option is a gift certificate for a manicure and/or pedicure to one of my favorite new non-toxic salons in NYC, Sundays.  This fabulous NoMad salon has their own in house line of 10-free, nontoxic, vegan & cruelty free nail polishes in a wide array of gorgeous colors.  Your mom will be able to relax and enjoy a guided meditation while getting her nails lacquered to perfection.  I’m also overjoyed to announce that Sundays and I will join forces for a collaborative mini mani/facial event on Saturday, May 27th.  If you can’t decide whether to get your mom a facial or a manicure, I recommend buying tickets for the event now, as space is limited, and spending the day together.  Plus you’ll both go home with a goody bag filled with non-toxic, organic beauty essentials.  To buy tickets, click here.
