Mother’s day. Ahhh Mother’s Day! It’s without a doubt one of my favourite and least favourite occasions purely based on the fact that whilst I absolutely love having a day dedicated to the best woman on earth – I know we’re all biased but mine actually is the best – she is also a nightmare to buy for.

Honestly, my Mum is a bit of a Tom Boy… she’s not bothered by makeup or clothes or any fancy perfumes (so that’s the standard Jo Malone candle out the window then), basically anything that you could possibly suggest, is pretty much pointless for my – totally babe’in but also totally awkward – Mum. And I know that I am not alone in this, every time I ask/beg my friends for suggestions, we are all stuck in exactly the same boat of not having a clue where to start. But one thing that we all agreed on was that you can never ever go wrong with skincare, because the vast majority of us ladies nowadays will take the time to invest in a good skincare regime, and if they don’t, then maybe they just need a little helping hand on where to begin.

Enter the Loreal Paris Age perfect Mothers day gift set, an absolutely beautiful gift set which includes some of my new favourite skincare items, is an absolute bargain for the quality (and quantity of the products inside) and is the perfect gift for Mums this Mother’s Day.
There are a million and one reasons why I love this giftset (so much so that I bought one for myself because “one for you, one for me” is my policy when shopping), the main reason is pure and simply because the products are stunning, but I also love that the set is just so affordable making it amazing for anyone who is on a budget too but still wants to get a gift that Mum will love. So, for £15 (this still blows my mind), you receive the Age Perfect cleansing milk, the Age Perfect face, neck and decollete lotion SPF 15 and the Age Perfect Re-Hydrating night cream. Individually the products are worth over £30 so basically, it’s a total, total bargain [insert party popper/hands up in the air emoji here].

Now, onto the products…
The cleansing milk. Honestly, this has become my new favourite morning cleanser (yes I have certain time of the day cleansers, no judgement here please) of choice. It’s super quick and easy but is incredibly moisturising and hydrating. Enriched with magnesium and energising vitamin c, the formula helps reduce the signs of fatigue and helps smooth mature skin. It just cleanses really well but leaves your skin feeling really clean but comfortable and not at all drying.

And then we have the Night Cream, a gorgeous, rich textured cream that’s enriched with Soya-Ceramide complex, formulated to work overnight leaving your skin feeling softer, firmer and beautifully nourished. 

For me though, it’s the Loreal Age Perfect face, neck and decollete lotion SPF 15 that I just cannot get enough of and personally, this is the total hero of the set. The re-hydrating lotion is enriched with Soya Ceramide complex to target the sagging of the skin, whilst the Melanin-Block helps reduce the appearance of age spots. And of course, it also includes SPF15 which honestly just completely makes my day because I am so lazy when it comes to applying additional SPF and I know a lot of Mum’s don’t have the time to do it either so this is just the perfect time saving product too.

Honestly, I couldn’t be any more impressed with the quality of these products – and I am lucky enough to try a lot of products, most being high end ones too, so this says a lot! – so I couldn’t recommend this set enough for Mother’s day. Not only is it great for Mum’s that love their skincare, but it’s also perfect for those who maybe don’t know so much about which products to use and where to start as the gift set covers all bases. Great value, fab products and beautifully packaged too, the perfect gift.

I’d love to know what you’re planning on getting your Mum for Mother’s Day? Would your Mum love this giftset as much as I (clearly) do?

As always, thanks so much for reading!

  1. My Mum loves skincare too and I like the packaging of this – the pump tube is very practical yet it still looks pretty

    This is such a lovely set, I can't believe it's only £15! Luckily my Mum loves candles and all the typical bath products but I'm so tempted to pick up one of these for her too (and maybe one for myself too haha!)

    Lovely post Elle!

  3. This had completely slipped my mind. Between birthdays and Easter how did I manage to forget this one. My mum is difficult to buy for too though I never once thought about skincare. That's such a brilliant idea. I know she tends to cheap out a lot so maybe I'll spoil her this year that way instead

    When a baby cries the mother seeks to learn what is needed. Is the child in pain, hungry, wet, cold, ill? Until she knows what the child wants the mother is unable to fulfill the need or desire. So, she guesses, first rocking and soothing, then offering food, then a blanket, etc., until the crying stops. The mother is a metaphor for how the world operates toward us.

    Millions of women today are thinking the same thing, how do I get him to propose, and that's a question that will plague many for years to come. There are just so many different things that you can do to make sure that you're in a committed relationship, that it can be difficult to narrow it down to a simple how to guide. If you're serious, however, there are some things that you can do today to ensure that he's thinking about the future that you two will have, and will not stray from it.

    I always get my mom beauty and skin care products for Mother's day. I figure she needs something to relax a bit and treat herself. So I'll definitely consider this– I haven't specifically decided what I want to get her this year.
    Lovely post, Elle 🙂

    We spend our whole life in search of love from others. We wish that true love will find us and that special love will change our life. If you don't find the love then you fall into the valley of emptiness and feel lost. We always tell our mind that if I get true love then I will be the happiest person on the earth. Actually it works the other way round. You need to love yourself to get love from others and you need to love yourself to give love to others. How can we give something to others which we do not have?

    Love spells are part of white magic which has got nothing to do with harming anyone. So if you have a doubt whether these spells are at all helpful in bringing the love of your life closer to you then you can definitely try one as it is very easy to do.

  15. This giftset sounds so nourishing and good for the skin, my mum would've loved this for mothers day as she's so into skincare! Beautiful photos as always! I hope your mum enjoyed her mother's day lovely! 🙂

  16. This set looks lovely, and very luxurious! 🙂 In Holland mother's day isn't for another few months, so I've got plenty of time to buy this! 🙂

  17. Moms is a very valuable person. Protect their children from everything. This applies to all subjects. One of these is in child care. With good care, children are more safe and healthy.

  18. My mum love the age perfect day cream!
