Our Favorite Clean Beauty Gifts for Mother’s Day
As a company that’s primarily for women by women, we think Mother’s Day is a pretty big deal. It’s important to stop and celebrate the women in our lives who nurture and support us, from our own moms and grandmas to mentors, friends, and beyond. If you’re in need of a thoughtful gift or two, we’ve got you covered with clean beauty favorites for every budget.
Gifts for The Zen Mom
Take Self-Care Sunday up a few notches with these picks.
Mount Lai Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool, $28: Facial tools are trending in the wellness community and for good reason. Gua sha is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that’s been practiced for thousands of years and helps support circulation, while also providing skin with a firmer, smoother appearance. Facial oil is usually used during gua sha, so pair this beautiful tool with one of our Follain faves, such as Indie Lee’s Squalene Facial Oil or Pai’s Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil.
Follain Essential Experience Aroma Diffuser Lamp, $60: Aromatherapy can turn almost any space into a zen den. This diffuser is made from beechwood and ceramic, and it gives off a lovely ambient light. Add a few drops of our Release Essential Oil (made with chamomile, geranium, lavender, and peppermint) for a truly relaxing vibe.
May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon, $180: This beautiful artisanal balm is made in small batches and works wonders for almost every skin type. It can be used in many ways: facial moisturizer, spot treatment, hydrating lip balm, under-eye cream . . . the list goes on. It features hydrating, soothing ingredients and aromatic oils, too.
Gifts for The Mom Who’s Always On The Go
Don’t let TSA guidelines get in the way of a clean beauty habit.
Follain To-Go Trio, $29: With three of our favorite products and a reusable pouch, this kit is a must-have for frequent travelers—or anyone who just wants to keep their toxin-free basics on them at all times.
Tammy Fender Epi Peel, $80: This fan favorite is know as “a facial in a jar,” as it refreshes skin in a flash. It gently removes dead skin cells, cleanses, and brightens in just 5 minutes, so Mom can get her mask on in the time it takes to make her morning coffee.
Mount Lai Mini Jade Facial Roller, $20: This jade roller is small enough to pop in your bag for whenever your skin needs a pick-me-up. It helps cool and de-puff, and it’s a secret weapon against TMJ and other kinds of facial tension.
Gifts for The New Mom
While all the attention is on the little one, these products help Mom take a few minutes to treat herself.
Follain Sugar & Shea Body Scrub, $22: When there’s only time for a 5-minute shower, this body scrub comes to the rescue! It’s quick and easy to apply thanks to its mess-free tube, plus it effectively scrubs and moisturizes skin a single step.
Ursa Major 3-Minute Flash Mask, $44: This gentle mask gives you soft, radiant skin in just a few minutes. With power ingredients like pomegranate extract, hibiscus flower extract, and alfalfa, it helps prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and protect the skin from environmental stress.
Follain Candle No 1, $28: We love candles for creating a cozy ambiance at home, but did you know that conventional ones can release toxic ingredients into the air? For a safe alternative, pick up one of our non-toxic, coconut and soy wax candles. Candle No 1 has a more relaxing aroma, while Candle No 2 features uplifting notes.
