What We’re Gifting Our Moms This Year
We celebrate the moms in our lives all-year-round, but Mother’s Day is a special excuse for a little extra pampering. Here at Follain HQ, that usually means one thing: clean beauty for days.
Here’s what some of our Follain staffers are gifting their moms this Mother’s Day:
This year, I’m giving my mom and grandma the new OSEA Anti-Aging Hand Cream and an old favorite, the Kari Gran Tinted Peppermint Lip Whip. I love that the hand cream comes in a small glass bottle that both fits in your purse and looks chic on a vanity. As for the Lip Whip, everyone needs a good lip balm, so I’m excited to treat mom and grandma to a luxe upgrade for Mother’s Day. Added bonus: my mom and grandma are both from Seattle and so is Kari Gran, so they’ll be excited to support a hometown brand!

My mom likes to steal my Kjaer Weis Cream Blush when I’m home, so I’ll be getting her one of her own. Not that I blame her, every color is super flattering and the compact itself is beautiful. She deserves a little luxury, anyway! For the other special mamas in my life, I’m gifting the Follain Candle No.2 — a subtly sweet scent without the unhealthy paraffin wax.

I’ve already spoiled my mom silly with clean beauty, so this Mother’s Day, I have my very-pregnant cousin at top of mind. I’m giving her the Erbaviva Baby Sunscreen and Diaper Cream, which I’ve been told are among the safest and gentlest out there. My cousin also laments about her own dry skin, so I’m treating her to Farmaesthetics Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil. It’s so hydrating and delicious – the perfect pick for pampering a new mom.

If you know me, you know that I am a sucker for anything coconut. So it’s no surprise that I’m totally obsessed with the Herbivore Botanicals Coco Rose Body Polish, a sugar scrub that makes my shower feel like I’m watching the sunset on a tropical beach somewhere. I know my mom will appreciate that it’s a time-saver as an exfoliator-meets-moisturizer. Plus, now I’ll be able to steal from her jar while visiting!

I gifted the Combat Ready Balm to my mother-in-law last Christmas and have already re-purchased it for Mother’s Day, per her request! She’s been using it on dry, winter skin, but I’ve assured her that it also works wonders on summer skin ailments: everything from bug bites to sun burns.
