MD Gift Guide2

1 As we get older and especially in the colder months, we start to see signs of dehydration. To help mom get her moisture fix, why not get her this Soothing Moisture Mask from Avène. It provides intensive soothing care to dehydrated, over stressed skin. Suitable for sensitive skins. Around R249 from Clicks. Read the full review here.

2 Mother Superior from Lush (limited edition)is a super cute and funny looking little bubble bar that looks like a nun. It is really soft and crumbly and easy to break up into the bath. (For those of you who have no clue as to what a bubble bar is – bubble bars are like bubble bath, just in solid form. Crumble them in running water to release intoxicating scents while your bathtub fills up with skin-softening bubbles.) Mother Superior will turn your bath water a beautiful sky blue and will impart a beautiful and uplifting floral scent to your foam. Mother Superior contains Sicilian Lemon Oil, Mimosa Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute and Jasmine Absolute. She has a similar fragrance to that of Sakura and Rub Rub Rub, so if your mom likes these two, you know you’re onto a good thing! Order online if you’re from Jhb R49.50 per 100.00g

3 Let mom know how special she is with these gold tone print stoneware mugs from Woolworths. R49.95 and R69.95

4 Help mom to get her pamper on with the Chronologiste range from Kérastase. La Parfum en Huile is a perfumed hair oil inspired by high-end perfurmery and contains notes like tea rose, blond wood and musk. This luxury perfume envelops the hair in a sensual and subtle fragrance for a long-lasting sensorial experience which mom can use as the last step after styling, for a finishing touch of brilliance and softness. Price unknown, available from selected hair salons.

5 To uplift, to wind down, or to simply  transform the atmosphere with luxury and opulence, go for a beautifully frangrant candle like this Pomegranate Noir candle from Jo Malone with hints of pomegranate, raspberry, plum, pink pepper, Casablanca lily and spicy woods. Candle burn time is 230 hours and is 2.5kg

6 Give mom the gift of warm and cosy feet with these fleecy, Aztec-inspired slippers. From R225 from Woolworths.

7 Say “yes” to a beautiful fragrance for mom. Si Eau de Toilette by Giorgio Armani is a romantic, fresh and soft fruity chypre scent that contained notes of blackcurrant, green pear, bergamot, mandarin, freesia, musk, vanilla and patchouli. It tells you to say “yes” to simplicity, joy of life, dreams and independence. Perfect for mom. Available in 50ml for R995.00 or 100ml for R 1 395.00

8 With a number of beauty awards under its belt, this Shea Butter Hand Cream from L’Occitane is bound to delight mom. 150ml for R330
