Lush Mother's Day Soap

Unique Spa Treatments at LUSH
If mama’s a fan of LUSH’s colourful, handmade, eco-friendly skincare products, a spa treatment at LUSH on Lyndhurst Terrace will make the perfect Mother’s Day gift. There’s a treatment for every mama here, from The Good Hour deep-tissue full body massage ($1,450 for 70 minutes) to the multisensory signature Synaesthesia full-body massage ($2,000 for 80 minutes); this combines colour, fragrance, sound, and a powerful word, each selected by mum based on how she’s feeling at the start of the treatment…a truly reviving experience. We love the pink treatment rooms too. 

For an at-home LUSH experience, treat mum to a product or two from the brand’s Mother’s Day Collection. We have our eyes on the violet Yummy Mummy Shower Cream ($90 for 100g) – ‘the mother of all shower creams’ (pardon the pun!), this is loaded with rich Fair Trade organic cocoa butter and the sweet blend of Brazilian orange and geranium oils, leaving mum’s skin hydrated, soft and smelling lovely. There are also a range of LUSH skincare sets, like the Just for Mum gift box ($380), beautifully wrapped and filled with five bath bombs, including the grounding Guardians of the Forest and the feminine Rose Bombshell; this one’s great for mama’s who like to have a hot soak at the end of the day; she’ll be sorted from Monday-Friday!

Caudalie Spa Treatments

Caudalie Skincare Products or Spa Treatment
Beauty products make the perfect gift for mum because they’re probably something she’d feel guilty about spending on herself. Treat your mum this Mother’s Day to Caudalie’s Vinosource Collection, the packaging in a palette of pinks, launching just in time for Mother’s Day on Friday, 6 May.

Sensory skin products made with natural ingredients, this new range’s star ingredient is organic grape water; rich in minerals and antioxidants like polyphenols (the same good stuff that’s in red wine), grape water can help maintain and correct the skin barrier, soothing and moisturising mama’s skin. For women with sensitive skin, Caudalie’s grape water has shown to reduce skin irritation by 61%, and decrease inflammatory mediators implied in skin redness.

A limited edition 100% Organic Grape Water mist ($60 for 75ml) is one of the five fabulous products in the Vinosource range; a handbag essential this summer, this is a moisturising ally for all skin types. We’ve also go our eyes on the Moisturizing Sorbet ($260 for 4oml), a gel-cream which transforms into a patch of water when applied to the skin to soothe, moisturise and soften. With notes of mandarin blossom, lemon tree leaf, cucumber water and fresh mint, this smells refreshing and citrus-y, without being too overpowering.

Or why not go all out and book mum in for the ultimate Mother’s Day pampering gift – a Vinosource Spa Treatment at Caudalie ($800 for 60 minutes, $1,150 for 90 minutes)! This soothing, hydrating and antioxidant treatment is ideal for dry, sensitive and stressed skin, specially designed to restore comfort, radiance and softness. The Nourishing Concentrate combined with soothing massage is perfect for relaxing tense facial muscles, while the polyphenol-rich Anti-Ox Mask promotes cellular renewal…mama will leave the treatment with her skin soft, plumped and glowing.
