Mother's Day is right around the corner and what better way than my fave mommy and mommy's-to-be last minute gift ideas? Let's take a look at my beauty picks from: Baby Sebamed, Curediva.com, Loxa Beauty, Moroccanoil and Mustela

First, here are some interesting mother-daughter beauty stats from Poshly.com
  • 17% of beauty lovers inherited the same skincare issues as their mom, 9% of which are above 35 years old.
  • 40% of beauty consumers between the ages of 18-24 always shop for beauty products with their mom! No wonder as 62% of beauty lovers under 18 to 24 years old say their mother is very influential when it comes to their makeup AND skincare choices.
  • 35% of beauty consumers between the ages of 25-34 also inherited the same makeup brands as their mom.
  • 23% have similar perfume choices as their mom.
  • 42% believe a massage is the best spa gift to give a mom, Mother's Day or not!

Save busy moms a trip to the store and give them the gift of a relaxing bath with new, gentle bubble baths and creams that are designed for babies’ delicate skin, but use stress reliving natural ingredients like lavender and chamomile, perfect for moms to relax with after a long day. Baby Sebamed is a top dermatologist-developed skin care brand formulated at pH 5.5, the ideal pH for babies’ skin. Made especially for sensitive, delicate and even problematic skin, Sebamed formulas are hypoallergenic and tear, soap, gluten and alkali free. They are tested and approved by moms and dermatologists, and can be used on newborns through to toddlers. For a complete package, pair these gifts with a soft towel or bathtub toys.
