We all know that it’s difficult to buy gifts for our mothers, but the gift of relaxation and pampering is always welcome. Here are some spa gift ideas that will help any mother feel pampered and relaxed while at home or in a spa.
If your mother is reluctant to visit a plastic surgeon’s office for fillers or other treatments, but would like tighter skin, she will love the NEWA Skin Care System. This at-home device uses EndyMed’s patented 3DEEP radiofrequency technology to stimulate the body’s production of new collagen and elastin. The device is easy to use, and you can adjust the intensity to suit your needs. I used it on the highest level and felt tightening within a couple of uses. You might want to get one for yourself too. https://www.newabeauty.com/, http://www.neimanmarcus.com.
Send your mother to skincare boot camp with the Boot Camp™ Facial at Haven Spa. This facial will get your mother’s skin in shape with manual and chemical exfoliation, including a personalized acid peel. The best part of this facial is that it’s customized to ensure that it is appropriate for your mother’s skin type. I have thin, sensitive skin that is aging, so my aesthetician used a milder peel. Still, the results were incredible. Less is really more sometimes. This facial helps to resurface, hydrate, diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, deep clean pores, stimulate circulation, brighten, stimulate collagen production, and boost cell turnover. It includes expert massage and stimulation of the facial muscles, as well as exfoliation and a peel that smelled like pineapples. Your mother will be in Haven. http://www.havenspanyc.com, 250 Mercer Street, New York, NY 10012, 212-343-3515.
For a truly luxurious spa gift to use at home, try the Time Response Vintage Wash Off Masque by AmorePacific. This masque contains fermented green tea leaf extract with visible tea leaves, to soften and brighten the skin. Just leave it on for 5-10 minutes and wash it off. It makes your skin glowing and hydrated. http://www.us.amorepacific.com.
Neck Amour – Rich Protein & Probiotic Leave-on Neck Mask by Skinn Cosmetics, is a great addition to your Mother’s Day gifts. Neck Amour is nothing short of a miracle cream in a jar. Your mother, her neck and décolleté, will thank you for this gift. It is specially formulated to give extra love and care to the delicate skin on the neck and décolleté. You leave it on at night and rinse it off in the morning. I use it religiously each night, and every time I apply it I feel a tightening effect. I even sneak some on my jaw line. If it works on my neck, it can’t hurt. The cream is formulated with some incredible ingredients, including Rice Protein to increase moisture retention, White Truffle Extract to even skin tone, French Black Currant Bud Extract to oxygenate the skin, and a Probiotic blend to improve skin radiance. http://www.skinn.com.
You can’t go wrong with roses on Mother’s Day, especially from Jurlique. The limited edition, Jurlique Immersive Rituals Body Care set includes Rose Hand Cream, Rose Shower Gel and Rose Body Care Lotion. Formulated with pure rose extracts, it will make your mother feel like she’s in a rose garden every time she showers or applies the lotion. Best of all, the box is so gorgeous you won’t even need to wrap it. http://www.jurlique.com.
