And for those of you still on the hunt for the perfect gift for the mothers in your lives, may I suggest some fool-proof pampering & spa treats, such as this limited edition LUSH Cosmetics Thanks Mum Gift Set ($26.95 CAD), which I was recently given the chance to preview?
Aside from the adorably sweet packaging, this lovely little kit includes four essentials to appease all of your mom's bath and body needs:
I'm a hand cream fiend (see my review of Cake Beauty's Velveteen Hand Creme, for example) but have never tried a solid moisturizer like this before. It's a little weird, but I really like it! Scented with vanilla and marigold, all you have to do is rub the bar over your hands to soothe and moisturize. I find it a bit greasy so would personally only use it before bed and not throughout the day.
Madame Butterfly Reusable Bubble Bar
Similar to the Easter-edition Carrot Top Reusable Bubble Bar that I posted about here, you simply swirl this wand around in your bath to create mounds of frothy bubbles and then leave it to dry to be re-used up to five more times. Madame Butterfly smells just like roses and can be bundled with LUSH's other Mother's Day re-usable bubble bars, The Mum and Mum Tulip, to make a cute bath "bouquet."
A great exfoliating product made with Fair Trade sugar that stimulates circulation through the inclusion of fennel and ginger. I don't typically use body exfoliators (other than exfoliating beads in my body wash) so this was a new experience for me. Smells great but might be a bit harsh for super sensitive skin. I would also recommend storing it away from water in a tin or travel soap dish after use so that it doesn't melt away.
I posted about Dream Cream in my review of the LUSH Home for Christmas Gift Set and my thoughts remain the same. Since it's no longer winter, however, Dream Cream is now perfect for daily use (in my opinion).

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!! ♥
