3. Clarins Treatment Fragrance Set
If there’s one thing we love to see beneath carefully ripped wrapping paper, it’s the Clarins logo – and the beloved beauty brand’s Treatment Fragrance gift sets are going to make a lot of mums very happy this coming Mother’s Day.
With three fragrances to choose from – Eau des Jardins (to uplift, refresh and captivate), Eau Dynamisante (for vitality, freshness and firmness), and Eau Ressourcante (for serenity, freshness and balance) – you are guaranteed to find a fragrance you or your mother will love.
Neostrata Enlighten Skin Brightener SPF 25
We love a good multi-tasking product, and Neostrata’s Enlighten Skin Brightener is currently on our lust-list. A daily triple-action moisturiser, this product uses a number of fancy ingredients to diminish the appearance of dark spots and brighten the overall skin tone.
The brand’s patented NeoGlucosamine gently exfoliates and encourages cell turnover, to diminish the appearance of skin discolouration; while the powerful antioxidants Chardonnay Grape Seed Extract and Vitamin E help to prevent environmental damage to the skin.
Enlighten Skin Brightener SPF 25, €34.95
5. IMAGE Skincare Vital C Range
IMAGE Skincare has developed a reputation as a favourite product of mums everywhere, and its Vital C range is really flying the flag. The best thing about this range is that it suits all skin types; and with everything from anti-ageing serum to hydrating masque and facial cleanser, there really is a product for every woman. You’ll probably end up picking up a product or two for yourself, if you choose to purchase some of these for your own mum.

6. Yon-Ka Essential White Range
As a leading pioneer of the French skincare industry, Yon-Ka is a brand that is very close to our hearts. While we have our classic favourites (you haven’t lived until you’ve smelled Pamplemousse), we have our eye on the new Essential White range, designed to target and brighten dark spots.
The range consists of three products: the Solution Clarté, to exfoliate dead cells and promote cell renewal; the Crème Lumiére, to brighten and unify complexion; and the Correcteur Ciblé, to correct dark spots.
If you really want to treat yourself or the main woman in your life, you need to check these out.
