My Mom's Favorite Beauty Products

7:27:00 AM

To go along with my Mother's Day Gift Guide (here), I wanted to share some of my mother's favorite beauty products. These would also be great ideas for gifts.  I remember watching my mom apply makeup ever since I was young. She would always pull out her mirror and apply makeup with such ease (I never really understood how meaningful these moments were for me, until I got older). I am still in awe of the way she applies her eyeliner. I still can't get mine to be that perfect!

My mom sticks to the more classic skincare and makeup products. There are a few newer ones that she has tried based on recommendations from me or my sister. Other than that, she has used some of these products since I was young.

Thank you for reading, xo.


BAKING SODA: My mom uses this in the morning to wash her face. She says that it works great to exfoliate, gradually lighten her dark spots and leaves her skin feeling smooth.

BIO OIL: She uses this daily on her face right out of the shower to moisturize her face and neck. It soaks into the skin and doesn't make you feel greasy. It also helps with dark spots and scars.

OLAY REGENEREST: My mom has been using this particular line of products for a while now and enjoys this face cream. This product is not greasy and leaves the skin feeling soft. She uses over top of the Bio Oil to lock in the moisture.

MAYBELLINE BABY SKIN PRIMER: This is a great everyday primer to help smooth skin and fill in fine lines or wrinkles before applying foundation.

PHILOSOPHY AMAZING GRACE BODY FRAGRANCE: My Mom says every time she wears this she gets at least a couple of comments from strangers. I have to agree it smells amazing. It is a great everyday scent.

NIVEA ESSENTIALLY ENRICHED BODY LOTION: She started using this product on recommendation from my mom. It is great for dry skin and the fragrance isn't over-powering. Since, she lives in a dryer climate this product is perfect to keep her skin hydrated and soft.


OLAY CC CREAM- She follows up her skincare with this CC Cream from Olay. It helps to even out her skin tone and add just a little bit of coverage. My mom isn't a fan of full coverage foundations either! Surprise, Surprise...wonder where I got my love for lighter foundations?!

MAYBELLINE THE NUDES PALETTE- This palette is great for any nude or smokey eye look. My mom prefers a more natural eye look on a day to day basis. This palette has good color pay off and is easy to blend on the eye. I also love this palette and find myself reaching for it a lot more lately.

RIMMEL EYELINER- "This eyeliner goes on smooth and stays all day"- Mom; You are right! I have also tried this product on her recommendation and love the way it applies and the color selection too.

MAYBELLINE GREAT LASH MASCARA- "I love, love, love this mascara". This is a staple in my mom's makeup bag. She has been using this product ever since I can remember. It has a lash building brush that makes it easy to get that full lash effect without any clumping.

NARS LIPGLOSS in TURKISH DELIGHT- I purchased this product for my mom for Mother's Day. She said she loves it already and has been using it since I gave it to her. This is another one of my favorites too. A great shade for everyday.
