They are also free from harsh chemicals and hidden nasties. Created after years of research to deliver organic skincare range. I am sharing the Wrinkle Smoothing Creme with my momma. But I am keeping my favourites: the Antioxidant Rich Nightly Repair Nectar and the Bio A7 Firming Eye Lotion, simply because my current focus is my eyes!

(2) Assorted Gifts
I personally LOVE the candle from Great Barrier Island Bee Co. The Kowhai and Vanilla is heaven in a form of a candle. RRP $23.90. Relax and indulge while burning this beautiful candle, a harmonising Pacific styled aroma inspired by the islands’ beautiful yellow native Kowhai flowers with a blend of subtle vanilla. They are hand poured with a unique blend of soy and natural beeswax which provides a long burning and intensively fragrant experience.
Chambord Liqueur (RRP$55.99) is also one of my personal favourites. It is an infusion of red and black raspberries, Madagascar vanilla and XO cognac. Make cocktails for your mom using Chambord; some favorites include Raspberry Margarita, French Manhattan, Chambord Royal Spritzer, Daiquiri and many more! How could you not say yes to a stylish bottle?
Ashley & Co Soothe Tube (RRP $22) is my favourite hand cream at the moment, it’s in my handbag everywhere I go. My mom loves it too, so I believe it would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift, perhaps to add in the hamper that you may be making. I love that such quality product is made in New Zealand, I’m all for supporting local brands. I’m currently using Costa Rican Tuberose & Wild Jasmine. The texture is rich, yet non-greasy for your hands and cuticles. The combination of shea butter, camomile extract and Vitamin E defend, soothe and nourish. This hand cream is like a beautiful bouquet with a heavenly smell in a 75ml tube.
(3) Vitamin E Special Edition Skincare Collection
I love the Vitamin E skincare from The Body Shop. I have used the Moisture Cream religiously since University days. This collection is perfect for giving your skin that royal treatment it deserves.
New in the collection is the Vitamin E Eyes Cube, RRP $34.95. It’s my favourite, an instant pick-me-up which I use both in the morning and during the day. It revives and refreshes the appearance of the eye area; whether it be dark circles or signs of fatigue or depuffing the appearance of under-eye bag. One thing that stood out for me is the cooling effect. This is a definite must-have in your makeup bag.
The Vitamin E Moisture Cream (50ml $26.25) is fresh and lightweight in texture. The color Pink is ideal for pink lovers, and is so popular that it is being sold every fourteen seconds. 100ml edition is available for a limited time only RRP $45.
The Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet provides 24 hour hydration, it comes in a glass jar with 2 million moisture-releasing aqua spheres in each jar. The texture of the sorbet is cooling and ultra-light which I love, although for those with sensitive skin, I would stick to the moisture cream, as it stings a little on the face!
(4) MOR Modern Apothecary – Mother’s Day gift sets
I have always been a fan of MOR products. The packaging is always beautiful and creative, such an affordable luxury! This Mother’s Day, MOR has a variety of heavenly fragrances and indulgent gift sets to choose from. Take your mom on a beautiful sensory journey.
The Bella Donna Treasures (RRP$24.99) revel in the sultry floral fragrance of Belladonna with a triple-milled Soapette and vitamin enriched Hand Cream. Thanks to Richie from MOR, I am giving this set away on our Facebook page, if you wish to enter, visit www.facebook.com/PinkandSparkles.

(5) Manuka Doctor apinourish Firm Body Moisturiser
I started using Manuka Doctor products last year and have not stopped using it since. The latest addition is the apinourish Firm Body Moisturiser RRP$54.95 (130ml). It is one of those products that is perfect to share with your mom.
Fitness and a balanced diet is significant, however happy to do whatever it takes to maintain youthful, healthy looking skin. This new product is a unique combination of Manuka Doctor’s signature ingredients of clinically proven Purified Bee Venom (PBV), certified UMF 18+ Manuka Honey and Royal Jelly. Personally, I feel it is best for the thighs and the butt.
Apply twice daily in a firm, circular motion paying particular attention to your problem areas for a brighter and smooth appearance.
