It’s that time of year again…time to pay homage to the wonderful spirit that carried you into the world: your mother! It’s coming up in a few weeks, so I wanted to give you some ideas about some special gifts that will make this year extra special for mom, who deserves all the best.
1. Sally B’s Skin Yummies Beauty Bag: $105
Treat mom to this awesome, paraben, bismuth and toxin-free beauty bag, which includes some of my favorite products, including B Glossy Lip Gloss (you can pick the color), Get Even Finishing Powder, B pinched cheek tint, and a wonderful Long Handled Flat Top Kabuki Brush. If you haven’t tried Sally B’s makeup brushes yet you’re in for a treat.
Mom should use the best products, and deserves not to have any harmful chemicals touch her precious skin!
2. Sally B’s Skin Bath Bag: $40
Help promote Mom de-stressing and relaxing, which is such an important component of overall health and well-being. Baths are a wonderful way to achieve this, and this Bath Bag is filled with organic makeup brands that will make Mom look forward to to bath time! I personally love the Lemongrass package, but there is also a Lavender package as well. It includes a B Fizzed Bath Bomb, Bath Salts, Bar Soap, and B Brilliant Essential Oil Blend in an organic cotton bag.
3. Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation:
This foundation will give Mom dewey, flawless skin that she’ll love. The Vapour Organic brand Soft Focus Foundation (Free Shipping Code: Vbeauty330) is one of my favorite foundations I have ever tried, and the first liquid non-toxic foundation that I found to work amazingly well. I bring it to TV shows for the makeup artists to use on me before segments, and makeup artists regularly comment on how great it looks. This super awesome foundation is made of 70% certified organic ingredients and 30% natural mineral pigments & vitamins. It contains nourishing ingredients such as organic pumpkin and papaya complex, lysine (an essential amino acid), and the mineral silica.
Get it for Mom, and maybe yourself if you haven’t tried it yet!
4. Aura Multi-Use Blush – Classic:
This is fantastic, natural looking blush that Mom can use during the day, or bump up application for a more for a sexy, but still natural-looking evening look. The official name is the Multi-Use Blush in Courtesan (Free Shipping Code: Vbeauty330), which I think is universally flattering. Many powdered mineral brands just sit on the surface of your face, and don’t blend in quite enough to be truly believable. This one creates a natural, fresh glow to your face. I’ve never been into liquid blushes because I don’t want any more layers on my face clogging my face. But I just put a dab of this wonderful solid blush in the apple of my cheeks, and then blend it in well with a blush brush. This product is also made with 70% certified organic ingredients and 30% mineral pigments and vitamins.
It’s a great gift for Mom- and will last her for ages.
The ultimate gift for Mom’s health, so she too can enjoy the GGS and more health-promoting recipes to keep her feeling and looking her best.
You can get the 5200 model, or if you’re more on a budget, you can enjoy all the benefits of the Vitamix with but with a lower price tag by purchasing a refurbished machine which may have been on the sales floor or returned, but is tested and works great. My first Vitamix was a refurbished model!
6. Clarisonic Mia II cleanser:
I got this for my Mom a few weeks ago and she loves it. I love the berry color, as it looks pretty in the bathroom. This is a great tool for deep cleansing, and can be used a few times a week (more or less depending on your skin). It will help remove dead cells so the efficacious ingredients in Mom’s creams can penetrate deeper and help brighten her skin.
Thank you so much for these amazing recommendations! Quick question: what facial cleanser and daily moisturizer do you recommend? My skin is different after having my baby, and by different, I don’t mean better!! Every dermatologist I’ve seen is recommending either prescription medication or washes that are full of chemicals. They also will not recommend a moisturizer without sunscreen, and my eyes are very sensitive to sunscreen, so I need to use a separate mineral one, only when necessary. I would be very grateful if you could recommend some products or brands that you like.
Yes I will do a blog on this topic soon! BTW Sally B’s mineral powdered foundation is largely titanium dioxide, so though it isn’t listed as an SPF yet it is pretty good. And great for acne-prone/blemish-prone skin.
I use it for casual days, then I use the Vapour one I list above for evening events or TV shows. 🙂
Thanks so much! Looking forward to reading it!
Jillian-Kimberly likes Tata Harper cleanser, and I think the moisturizer as well. I remember her talking about this brand in particular. I bought the trial size just to check it out and it’s smells so yummy, it’s addicting, and also very gentle on your skin. Made 100% natural..
I’m currently looking into some studies on some ingredients and will write a blog on this soon!
Thanks for the ideas, Kim! What sort of cleanser would you recommend using with the Clarisonic Mia?
thank you for this list! do you use the clarisonic mia cleaner? your skin is flawless and i’ve heard really good things about the mia.
I also really like the Beauty without Cruelty Alpha Hydroxy Cleanser, which I use with the Mia. I got one last week and use it occasionally- I like how it feels!
Oh, and thank you. I actually have some areas of my face with large pores, and my skin was not so “flawless” before I overhauled my diet and skincare routine. xx
The Sally B’s line has the most amazing cleanser and moisturizers ever! Check out the antioxidant powder boost you add to either the moisturizers our the fantastic toner!!!
Yes I love the Antioxidant Boost!
Hello Kimberly, unfortunately my computer broke down and I can not see your book, had purchased online in pdf.
I would like to know a little about your point of view in relation to glycemic.
Take a look at my recent Fructose-Glucose blog, which touches on this topic. xx
Clarisonic is such a good one! My mom is a beautician and has yet to try it. I know she’d love it. I’m hosting a Mother’s Day giveaway on my blog with some other great ideas! Enter to win something special for you, and your mom. Paintsandpans.com
I understand the functioning of glucose in our body’s have difficulties in the selection of natural foods.
For example they have local say that the banana has average GI others say it is low. I am a little confused.
Thanks for the tips! I am a Mum but could not wait for Mothers day so I ordered stuff for myself from Vapour Beauty after reading a previous post you did on it! Love them so far.
I have been following most tips in your book and want to start gravity-centered colonics. My question is – how often should one get them? I will be starting with a deal where you get three spaced out over about 4 weeks and I am planning to continue to get one every four to six weeks thereafter. Does this sound ok to you?
Thanks in advance.
Lili from the UK.
I have been in the radiant beauty phase for 5 weeks now. I have to say I feel amazing! I have lost 11lbs and I have so much energy. I love the GGS and I look forward to it everyday. My only question has to do with my skin. I started using a natural cleanser and coconut oil for my moisturizer. However my face is breaking out more than ever. I’m not sure if my body is just cleansing out all the impurities or if I’m doing something wrong. I’m trying to be patient but I would love some direction. It looks like you will be posting a blog soon on this topic.
Yes I will Jessica. For now, try the Sally B’s cleanser, and maybe get the clarisonic brush to help really clean out your face a few nights a week. Try the Sally B moisturizer too, which is pretty milk for acne-prone skin, instead of the coconut oil straight on your face (but keep using it on your body). Are you pooping enough? To get toxins out, you know we have to talk about that right? 🙂 Kimberly
Thank you for getting back to me! I will definitely try those products! To be honest with you I don’t think I am pooping enough for how many greens I’m consuming. I will go once a day but sometimes every other day and they are hard. I have always had constipation problems. I am taking two magnesium pills each night but I didn’t get the one with oxygen that you recommend. I am going to order that online. I drink about 68 fl. oz per day. Any suggestions?
Her is a better update. I got the products u recommended and the
mag-o2 supplements. This week has been way better in terms of poopong and I k ow it will take a couple weeks to notice any difference in my face with the products. I couldn’t be more happy with the results. You are amazing! Can’t wait for your next book!
Hi Kimberly I love your blog!This is not at all related to the post,I just want to know about weight gain,I have been on the beauty detox for a year now and I love it but I am getting to skinny,especially in my face,do you have any tips for weight gain on raw?I still eat cooked at night,no gluten.Thanks!
THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE BEAUTY TIPS YOU GIVE ON MAKE UP AND THE SPECTACULAR MOTHER’S DAY IDEAS.
ALL MY LIFE I’VE HAD VERY SENSITIVE SKIN AND EYES. SO IT’S TORTURE WHEN I WANT TO WEAR EYE MAKEUP. MY EYES START TO STING THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT WHEN I WEAR MASCARA AND EYELINER. I WASH MY FACE AND EYES THOROUGHLY BEFORE BED AND TRY TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS OFF; HOWEVER, I STILL WAKE UP WITH NASTY GUNK IN MY EYES, AND MY EYELIDS ARE OFTEN STUCK TOGETHER. EEEEWWWW!!!!! ANY RECOMMENDATIONS?
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
check out my link on healthy makeup a few blogs back. One of the brands, Vapour, has a great eyeliner you might want to try. 🙂
Hi Kimberly, love the blog and book!! I have a question for you, I’ve been following the blossoming beauty plan for a few days now. I was a vegetarian already and didn’t eat much dairy. Even in this short time I can tell that I’ve lost weight, which isn’t good since I was already a bit too thin. Do you have any ways that I can up the calories?? Thanks!
Increase your portion sizes of quinoa, have the Rainforest Acai shake with more chia seeds, increase avocados, and eat almond butter with celery sticks and millet bread with avocado, etc. xx
HI KIMBERLY!! I JUST ORDERED YOUR BOOK!! I’m soo excited, I can’t wait to start your plan 😀 bye bye 😀
Hi Kim! I love that you gave these great Mother’s day gift ideas. For a beginner, what would you recommend out of the group. Feeling a bit overwhelmed with where to start. Can you please set me in the right direction. Thanks so much!
What are your thoughts to the origins skincare and make up line? The lady in the counter said that all of their products are organic?
