Mother’s Day Beauty Refresh with Cos Bar
Are you ready for Mother’s Day? If you’re having trouble figuring out a gift, how about some beauty and skincare products that your mom/grandma/wife/sister/friend might not buy for themselves. The perfect one-stop place to shop for gifts or a beauty refresh for yourself is Cos Bar. They carry all the best brands and newest products that keep my skin looking amazing.
To help get you started on your gift list, Cos Bar is offering HC readers $25 off $150 purchase online and in store with the code HABITUALLY from May 1st through the 5th. Customers can just mention the code HABITUALLY for Cos Bar in store purchases.
I love my Clarisonic Mia Fit and notice a difference when I forget to charge it and can’t use it for a night. I feel like this is a gift that mom’s might not buy for themselves which makes it the perfect present.
I was introduced to ReVive Insensité Line Erasing Serum from Cos Bar and it’s worth every penny. If you or your mom are afraid of Botox or fillers, this is a great alternative.
If your mom is a minimalist who doesn’t want to use a lot of products, La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo is a great gift. It has a day cream with SPF on one side and a night cream on the other side that is another one of my all time favorite products.
I love Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiance under my foundation but one of my older readers told me she uses it alone to give her skin a little glow.
After trying quite a few foundations last year, I finally settled on La Mer Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF20. It’s light but covers and never breaks me out. If mom has been using the same foundation for a decade, she would definitely enjoy this up upgrade. You can’t also go wrong with a jar of Creme de la Mer as a present too.
Everyone knows that Clé de Peau makes the Rolls Royce of concealers but some people consider it too luxurious to buy for themselves. That makes it the perfect gift, especially if you’ve been doing things that keep your mother up at night and causing her dark circles. I keep one in my bag at all times for touch ups on the go.
The weather is finally warming up and if mom still looks pale from winter, how about a chic Tom Ford Bronzing Powder and a trip to the beach for Mother’s Day. This is what I used to make me look a little sun kissed on my trip to Bermuda.
Another beauty item that I bet a lot of mom’s don’t buy themselves are make up brushes. If you think your mom has been using the same brushes since high school, she would be very grateful for this Bobbi Brown Travel Brush Set. I prefer to use shorter travel brushes because they fit in my makeup bag.
No one tells you that as you get older, your eyebrows will thin out and your lashes will cease to look as luscious as they did when you were younger. If your mom complains about both of these issues, she would love RevitaLash and RevitaBrow. I use them both and they really work.
There is nothing wrong with drugstore lip balm but if you want to give your mom an upgrade, I highly recommend By Terry Baume de Rose Crystalline. I just found out it also comes in a travel size which I plan to buy for every one of my bags.
If your mom complains about dry and damaged hair, she will love Oribe Gold Lust Repair Restore Shampoo & Conditioner. It makes my highlighted hair silky and soft. If your mom lives in a humid climate, throw in the Oribe Impermeable Anti Humidity Spray and you will definitely become her favorite child.
If your mom is very old school and still gets her hair set at the salon or if she just loves to make a blow out last, she will flip for the Slip Pure Silk Pillowcase. It keeps your hair and your skin smooth while sleeping. I also love the Slip Sleep Mask for traveling. They both come in a few different colors too.
I don’t know any woman who doesn’t love peonies so how about giving a Jo Malone Peony Blush Suede Candle to all the moms in your life?
Many moms are so busy that they end up eating off their kid’s plates. I love 8G Essential Greens Booster when traveling to help me get more greens but they’re great for anyone trying to be a little healthier.
