If anyone deserves a little pampering and self-care, we think it’s mothers. Selfless, caring, always juggling taking care of everyone’s needs, moms are the glue that holds everything together.
But as the old saying goes, you can’t pour from an empty cup. That’s why this year, we’re giving the moms in our lives some really pampered, beautiful gifts.
Oh – and can we all agree that it’s also perfectly acceptable to give yourself a Mother’s Day gift? Just say.
Wondering what to get your mom who loves beauty? These will no doubt be a treat.

Winner of no less than 200 beauty awards, Shiseido Serum Ultimun is a powerhouse, designed to reactivate the skin’s multi-defensive power to resist, protect, regenerate and strengthen against harmful aggressors.
It’s the power your skin needs to visibly slow the aging process for as long as possible, packing a block of nutrients to visibly reduce the signs of aging, amp up hydration and boost radiance in just three days.
2. SEABODY Beauty
All-Irish brand of marine cosmetics and nutraceuticals SEABODY offers a range of bio-engineered skincare and supplements. I really love how everything is sustainable and ethically made, and how the products are cruelty-free, plant-based and contain proprietary marine molecules that SEABODY has isolated from 100% organic Irish seaweed in using a zero waste process.
Impressive? I say.
I also like their approach to beauty from within, as evidenced by these beauty supplements, made with Fucoidan, a powerful marine bioactive associated with the power behind algae.‘s resilience, protecting it from many environmental stressors in the harsh ocean environment in which it thrives. Since its discovery in 1913, Fucoidan has been widely analyzed in worldwide scientific research, with thousands of peer-reviewed publications describing its many benefits.

3. Dermalogica Circular Hydration Serum
A true hydration hero, cult skincare brand Dermalogica’s all-new Circular Hydration Serum really does what it says on the box – immediately floods skin with hydration and rejuvenates interior, while preventing future evaporation of hydration.
Like any other organ, our skin needs constant hydration to stay healthy and act as the protective barrier it is designed for. However, climate, lifestyle, and many other factors often end up depleting our skin of its critical moisture, leaving it looking and feeling dry, irritated, and dull.
Circular Hydration Serum aims to solve this problem. It is packed with hyaluronic acid for deep hydration and more supple, radiant skin, seaweed extract that improves the skin barrier and reduces trans-epidermal water loss, and polyglutamic acid derived from bean sprouts fermented, which improves skin hydration, traps water on the surface of the skin and helps improve the appearance of firmness.

6. Nunaia Superfood Cleansing Balm
Nunaia is an Irish company worth noting – and their ultra-nourishing organic cleansing balm is definitely a must-have product for women, I think.

Being a mom is often late at night and early in the morning, so what could be better than giving her the cult new beauty tool that will literally wake her skin up whenever she needs a boost?
Aliso Cryo Globes harness the natural power of cold temperatures to help increase microcirculation, collagen production and toxin elimination. Made from surgical stainless steel, they also have a soothing, anti-inflammatory and firming effect on the skin, and will help reduce puffiness.
Oh, and we love how the feeling of cold is picked up by receptors in the skin which stimulate nerve cells and have a tightening effect on the epidermis. In other words, tighter, firmer and more radiant skin.
