Mother’s Day is right around the corner—and you may still be searching for the perfect Mother’s Day gifts to show the moms in your life how much you care. Well, if she’s as obsessed with beauty products as you are, why not treat her to some new goodies to add to her makeup bag and skin care routine? Help brighten the look of her complexion—as well as her day—with 10 of our best Mother’s Day gift ideas, including an easy-to-use sunless tanning option, volumizing mascara, and of course lipstick (for the lipstick lovers that won’t let protective face masks ruin their vibe—or look). Grab them from Walgreens and send them her way, along with her favorite flowers and her Zodiac Affinity playlist, and it’s sure to be the special day that she deserves.
As skin matures, its ability to renew surface cells slows down, causing a buildup of dead cells on the surface. As a result, skin’s natural pink tone is hidden, and the complexion becomes dull, losing the rosy tone that’s often associated with youth. And that’s where this gift comes in! It’s an intense daily moisturizer formulated with imperial peony and LHA to gently exfoliate the skin, and enhanced with rosy pigments to instantly revive skin’s rosy tone. Immediately, skin is hydrated, feels smoother, and looks rejuvenated and with continued use over time skin will appear renewed.
Since you’re supposed to replace mascara every three months, a mascara lover always has an excuse to shop for a new favorite. And if Mom loves to dress up her eyes, we have a feeling that she’ll love this option. It has a volume maximizing brush that thickens and builds lashes evenly for a full look. Not to mention, it works to resist clumping and keeps lashes soft, which makes for a winning combination!
If you ask us, no beauty look is complete without a pretty pout. Make sure your mom can coat her lips in color by adding this intense nude collection to your list of Mother’s Day gift ideas. The non-drying formula leaves lips feeling soft while delivering comfortable wear with color that lasts. We won’t judge if you grab a few shades for yourself, too!

Excuse us for the pun, but we just couldn’t help ourselves: This is not your mother’s makeup primer. This is definitely an upgrade. The caring serum instantly gives skin a radiant, healthy-looking finish, while smoothing the look of lines and pores. It gives the complexion an immediate soft focus, and improves the look of skin over time. Softer, smoother, brighter skin for mom? We’ll have what she’s having!

Nothing says get glowing like a beautiful spring tan—sans the UV damage and accelerated aging. Let the mom that you’re celebrating get her glow on with this safe and easy tanning alternative. Before bed, she can simply mix five to seven drops into her nighttime moisturizer, massage into her face and neck, and wake up to a natural-looking sun-kissed glow. It’s the perfect addition to anyone’s anti-aging skin care arsenal.
Don’t you think your mom deserves a little pampering? We do! And if heading to her favorite spa isn’t an option, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still have a luxurious experience. Create your own spa-at-home moment with this pampering pre-poo hair treatment. Formulated to give the scalp an exfoliating detox, this scalp scrub removes unwanted buildup and treats flakes, dandruff, excess oil and dry scalp. The menthol and apricot seed formula has a calming fragrance to transport you both to a relaxing state—even if you’re actually in your mom’s bathroom.
Follow up the detox scrub with this shampoo to continue the spa-at-home experience, and also give your tresses some TLC. The formula is gentle on color-treated hair while tough on product buildup, dirt, oil and all the junk that accumulates in the hair between wash days. A shampoo session that’s both effective and lets you unwind? Yes, please!
Of course no wash day is complete without the proper conditioner. Finish your tranquil experience with this final step in the scalp care + detox system for hair that’s soft, bouncy and healthy. Nothing says you’re the best mom ever like an invigorating scalp massage with no travel time. Add some cucumber water or mimosas to the mix, break out the macarons and just let the zen wash over both of you.
