Mother’s Day - the Skin Juice way
28 April 2022
I’m the kind of person who loves gifts - but I also love being an adult and being able to buy things for myself. I know what I like and that means when I buy my own presents, I’m never disappointed.
That chunk of coin I just spent on a ticket to Harry Styles? MERRY CHRISTMAS, ME!
BUT - one of the best things in the world is that feeling when someone gives you something you actually want - right? As I get older, I want useful, practical gifts and in our house that means stocking up my Smudge Budge before it runs out. It may not sound like a fancy present but the investment in skincare that many of us are making means that there’s something a bit ‘ooh la la’ about gifting it.
You know what they say: diamonds are forever, but they won’t keep your skin feeling soft and moisturised at night.*
I also love things that come in handy dandy “here’s one I prepared earlier” packs - which is why the Healing Hands Kit is a perfect gift - and not just for Mother’s Day.
Without fail, every time I use the Perfect Paws hand cream I keep on my desk, I get colleagues asking me what the beautiful scent is. It’s the perfect consistency - creamy and nourishing - and I love the way it comes out of the tube at a pace that will never leave you weirdly asking other people if they need hand cream.
Of course I said it was in a kit, didn’t I? My other favourite product, the thing I must have in multiple locations throughout the house at all times - Green Juice Skin Rescue Balm (AKA the magic green stuff). Everyone in our house has their own because what I don’t need is little dirty fingers in my personal stash of the ideal balm for any and every part of your face and body.
I carry the stick style that comes in the kit in my travel bag and have a spare one ready for when it runs out. I have a tub the size of my head on the bathroom sink because I never don’t need a dab of it. Itchy eczema flare on my arm? Green Juice. A spot that’s healing after I burned it last week on the oven rack because I was really excited to check my roasting pumpkin? Green Juice. Dry lips need prep before I start my makeup for the day? GREEN. JUICE.
So if you’re looking for a gift, Mother’s Day or any time, don’t overlook the option to go a little luxe with a gift from what is or will be your special person’s favourite skin treat.
