The Beauty Gifts to Pamper Your Mom This Mother's Day


You first learned about skincare and makeup from your mom. And the naughtier ones amongst us might have ruined one or two of mom's lipsticks while playing with her makeup when we were kids. 

Mommy may not be as updated with the latest beauty products and beauty trends as we are now, and it is now our turn to get her the best and latest products to pamper her skin.

Since Mother's Day is just around the corner, scroll down and discover some of the beauty gifts that you can get for your mum.


Clinique Limited Edition Print Clinique iD: Dramatically Different™ Hydrating Jelly & Active Cartridge Concentrate

Credit: Clinique 

A first-of-its-kind customisable moisturiser that hydrates and treats your main skin concern. Sounds great, but how does it work?

First, choose one of the three hydrating bases, the Hydrating Jelly, the Moisturizing Lotion, or the Oil Control Gel, whichever that is better for your skin type. Next, pick an active concentrate, each formulated to address one skin concern — irritation, pores & uneven texture, uneven skin tone, fatigue, lines & wrinkles. And ta-da, you got your customised moisturiser that doubles up to tackle your skin concern!

The Custom-Blend Chemistry Technology™ isolates the concentrated actives in the cartridge from the base, delivering optimised results with every pump by freshly combining the precise dose of concentrated actives and base.

Available at all Clinique counters, Sephora, and Lazada.

La Mer best-selling favourites


Mommies deserve the best, like La Mer best-selling favourites — Crème de la Mer, The Treatment Lotion and The Eye Concentrate.

Crème De La Mer is a luxuriously rich cream that provides deep lasting moisture, helps to heal dryness, and repairs skin’s essential barrier. Skin feels firmer, soft-to-the-touch, supple and smooth after application. It improves the appearance of fine lines, redness, and skin irritation and is ideal for dry or sensitive skin.

Many said that we can totally skip toner but we beg to differ. The new La Mer Treatment Lotion preps the skin for the other skincare products that follow, and is an essential step in our skincare.

La Mer The Eye Concentrate is powered by iron-rich minerals and it significantly reduces the appearance of dark circles, lines and wrinkles. Three concentrated forms of Miracle Broth™ helps to condition, smooth and hydrate the delicate eye area.

Available at La Mer counters and
