Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2022

Written by Caroline Davies

Mother’s Day is on the horizon (mark Sunday 8th May in your diary). We couldn't be luckier to have such inspirational, empowering women to uplift and encourage us every day. In honour of Mother’s Day, we asked some of the team here at HQ what they love most about all things motherhood and what’s top of their wishlist for gifts this year.

How did your beauty routine change after becoming a mother?

Making time for yourself as a new parent is challenging, there is so much change and so much to learn and it’s all happening at once. As silly as this sounds, I always made sure I made time for a shower and my skincare routine, every day. There was very little time for most things, so using a good quality shower gel like Nutri-Rich Deluxe Shower Crème and my Platinum products made me feel like I was doing something just for me every day as self-care in the quickest, most luxourious way possible.

What would you love to receive most this Mother’s Day? 

There are so many lovely gifts to choose from in our range but I would most love to receive the new Luxurious Bath Salts. Having a nice hot bath and reading a good book with some quiet time is the best thing I could ask for this Mother’s Day. Plus, the Lemon Essential Oils in the soak smell amazing!

What’s the best beauty time saving hack that you’ve discovered?

You don’t need a lot of products to create an everyday make-up look. If I’m time poor which most mornings I am, I use three products. nc Easy Brow Definer to shape my brows, nc Radiant Colour Lipstick in one of the pink shades for my lips (and you can also use as a cream blush too), plus Professional 4-in-1 Mascara for my eyes. These three products save time and leave me with a flawless natural look in only a few minutes.

What’s the best motherhood advice you’ve been given?

Trust your gut! Every baby is different and only you know what is truly best for your child.

 

Angelas mothers day wishlist

'Cherish the special times, embrace the chaos and never be too hard on yourself.'

Angela, New Product Development

How did your beauty routine change after becoming a mother?

In lots of ways, it simplified when my children were babies. However, I did find I loved doing more home face masks and DIY facials, rather than going to the salon regularly. You save so much time and money, plus you can get amazing results that equal the spa these days. My family are so used to seeing mum with a sheet mask. At the moment, I’m loving the new AHA Activating Treatment followed by Platinum Lift & Firm Power Masque each week to refresh and uplift my skin — usually on a Friday night with a glass of wine while watching my favourite Netflix show. 

What would you love to receive most this Mother’s Day? 

Platinum DNA Cellular Age Repair Crème! There’s something really specially about this crème, there’s so much science in the formula I know you really get the results. I apply it twice daily to hide the signs of sleep deprivation. And flowers, of course. Hopefully, Kate’s dad is reading this!

Angelas gift picks for mum

What’s the best beauty time saving hack that you’ve discovered?

This is a really simple one but mixing a couple of drops of my IRYNA Wild Melon Wonder Oil with my foundation (usually nc Perfecting Oil-Free Foundation for everyday wear). It gives me an instant, natural all-over glow and makes blending so much quicker.

What’s the best motherhood advice you’ve been given?

Try to be as present as you can and treasure the precious moments, especially when they are small because they’re over so quickly. Cherish the special times, embrace the chaos and never be too hard on yourself.

'Try to take some time out for yourself to recharge with me-time each week, and the washing can always wait.'

How did your beauty routine change after becoming a mother?

After my pregnancy, my skin suddenly became more prone to discolouration and uneven skin tone thanks to hormones and lack of sleep. White-Age range is such a godsend for fading dark spots and brightening dull, tired skin. I also wear Smart Shield Protection Crème SPF 50 everyday to protect my complexion from further damage and to help with melasma post-pregnancy pigmentation.

What’s the best beauty time saving hack that you’ve discovered?

Applying make-up in the car is also a new skill I’ve had to master. So anything multi-purpose that lets me do multiple steps in one go. I love the nc Beauty Blush & Highlighter Palette, which I use for bronze, blush, contour and highlighting.

Fions wishlist for mum

What would you love to receive most this Mother’s Day? 

Candles just make everything feel calmer and more serene. The new Orchid & Ylang Ylang Three Wick Scented Vintage Candle truly lifts your mood instantly and has a lovely retro charm about it. Plus the Orange Flower and Vanilla notes are super relaxing. 

What’s the best motherhood advice you’ve been given?

Now that I am a mum, I fully realise that mum’s are truly amazing and just so giving. Make time for your friends and always ask for help when you need it. Try to take some time out for yourself to recharge with me-time each week, and the washing can always wait.
