As mothers themselves, our Directors have perfect suggestions for you...
Stuck for Mother’s Day gift ideas this year? As mothers themselves, our Directors have some family-friendly Balance Me skincare, bath and body product recommendations that they know will bring a smile to the face of the mum in your life too!
A unanimous favourite amongst Co-Owners Sian Jones, Rebecca and Clare Hopkins is the multi-purpose, wonder pot that is Stellar Beauty Balm. Packed full of vitamins and essential fatty acids, this versatile pot is perfect for protecting and hydrating the skin plus helping it to heal by promoting cell renewal. It can be used for everything – from protecting skin from the side effects of Britain’s bitter weather to the kids’ little bumps, and Co-Founder Rebecca thanks the Stellar Beauty Balm for making skin “look as though I’ve had 12 hours sleep, even if I haven’t” when she applies it as a hydrating overnight mask.
For any mums preparing to jet off on an Easter break, Clare also recommends our Stellar Beauty Balm as a must-have travel essential “It is so multi-functional and suits all trips. We just returned from a family holiday in Egypt and it was my handbag secret weapon, I used it to prevent dry skin on my face and body after a day in the sun, as a hydrating lip balm, a soothing treatment for insect bites, to help repair any cuts and grazes my children gain and much more!”
The Rose Otto Body Wash is also a family holiday favourite. It soothes skin after a day in the sun with its calming blend of pure rose otto, palmarosa and rose geranium essential oils. Mums prone to a little hot flush will love our Skin Bright Hydrating Face Mist, which will calm and soothe - brilliant to keep in her handbag for those ‘hot and bothered’ moments!
If you know someone who is eagerly awaiting the arrival of, or has just welcomed, a little one into the world, we have pre-pregnancy and post-pregnancy gifts sorted. During pregnancy, each of our Directors used our Super Moisturising Body Oil to prevent stretch marks and ensure skin was as supple and nourished as possible. The Super Moisturising Body Oil was formulated when Rebecca became pregnant with her first child, as she couldn’t find a good, natural alternative available. Nut-free and packed full of healing essential fatty acids, it is the go-to product for expecting mums. “I then used the Super Toning range, in particular the Body Oil, when I had my children and wanted to restore my skin’s firmness post-pregnancy.”
Whether she’s a mother-to-be, a brand new mum, or the children are growing up quicker than they can say “Elsa’s ice palace”, sleepless nights will undoubtedly wreak havoc with every mother’s skin. All three of our Directors understand the importance of balancing home life with a busy work schedule and appreciate products that give them instant skin solutions, a calm moment and a little TLC when needed. Clare explained, “The Intensive Wrinkle Repair Cream is rich and nourishing, helping to firm and hydrate skin overnight whilst the Facial Expression Filler is a handbag essential whilst on-the-go, plumping any fine lines to create perfectly smooth skin.” Sian’s go-to product is our multi award-winning Radiance Face Oil, she says “I created the skin-healing blend of yarrow and benzoin with my family in mind. We have a family history of psoriasis and I wanted to be able to give my mum the gift of calm, smooth and beautiful skin everyday – something that is guaranteed for all skin types with this 100% natural face oil.”
With so many beautiful natural gift ideas to chose from, you can relax with the thought that together we have Mother' Day perfectly under wraps!
