I’ve definitely inherited the bathing gene from my mum who is almost religious about a daily bath. I don’t think she has ever used a shower in her whole life other than a hand-held for hair washing. So, she’s easy to buy for when it comes to beauty treats for mother’s day. I love doing posts like this where I can pick a fantasy list of gorgeous things – in real life she will probably ask for something practical like a garden fork, but I’ll be sneaking something pampering in anyway. So, first up is the Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax (£39) which is one of my all-time favourites and I’m always trying to convert anyone who’ll listen to the fact that you will not have a better night’s sleep than after this! She would say it’s far too expensive – I would say it’s worth every last penny!
Next up, I’d be picking her out a new lipstick. My mum wears lipstick every day – I can’t think of a day where she hasn’t worn any, even if she doesn’t wear any other make-up. And, bearing in mind she is in her seventies, she’s quite adventurous with colours. Above is Atrappe Coeur from the Guerlain Meteories Blossom Collection of Rouge Automatique which is a pretty coral-pink that she would love. It’s £25.
Posh soaps are definitely right up my mum’s street, so Nina Ricci’s L’Air du Temps soap is something she’d use and love using as well. I refuse to buy her face cream for any special days, such as birthdays or Mother’s day (she can have her pick of my samples anyway) because I always want her to have something she wouldn’t normally buy for herself. I remember her having the Nina Ricci L’Air du Temps fragrance so I’m delighted to have found this.
