Hey my loves! Mother’s Day is on May 12th and I wanted to make a gift guide featuring cruelty free products to help you out when shopping for gifts this year! I decided to break it into three categories: fragrance, skincare & body care – so you’ll be able to find something that your Mother will love! These are all different price ranges too so I’m sure something will fit into your budget. I personally love shopping at Ulta for beauty products since they always have a coupon available and typically have some pretty great deals. Right now, if you spend $40 on fragrance, you’ll get a free tote with your purchase!
I think that roller ball sets are a really nice gift! You get the option to try out a few different fragrances without having to buy a full sized bottle or get a tiny sample. This makes it easier for someone to really try out the fragrance to see if they like it. I personally LOVE the smell of the Daisy perfume. I haven’t tried the other versions, but I’m sure they smell great too!
Here is another roller ball sampler set. I haven’t tried DefineMe yet but I’ve really wanted to after hearing a review from Rhian HY! I think this would be a good gift because there’s lots of different scents to choose from so there has to be one in there that she’ll like…maybe she’ll even share with you! I also love the illustrations and “personality” that they’ve given each fragrance.
So this fragrance isn’t available at Ulta, but I just had to include it. I got a sample of “Hello” in a box from somewhere and I absolutely fell in love with it. It is such a gorgeous scent and it’s definitely perfect for Spring. Harvey Prince is cruelty free & vegan and I like their philosophy.
Skincare is important no matter what your age is. I think that this age defying kit would be perfect as a Mother’s day gift! This kit includes a cleansing milk, a toning refresher, an enzyme mask, a peptide perfecting cream and a night repair cream – everything you’d need to start a new skincare regime!
This is also a good set to get into a skincare routine! I love The Body Shop and so does my mom, so I know that this would be perfect for her. It comes with a youth concentrate and and a face cream.
So this is the most expensive thing in this gift guide, but I do think that it’s worth the price. I got my sister a Soniclear from Michael Todd a few years ago for Christmas and she loves it – so I know that Michael Todd is a reliable brand. So this set come with an intensive eye cream treatment meant to reduce fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. This set also comes with a rechargeable Sonic eraser which is an “infusion” device that will make your products reach the deeper layers of your skin.
You can never go wrong with giving body wash as a gift! It’s frustrating when you run out without realizing and don’t have any back ups to use (unless this only happens to me? hm…) I’ve tried this body wash before in a travel size when I went on a cruise. It smells great and works well – they have other scents too so pick what your mom would like best! These are a great alternative to Bath & Body Works who are NOT cruelty free.
This is unfortunately sold out while this post is going up, but try to see if you can find it in your local Ulta store! I think this would be a great item to throw into a pedicure basket that you could easily gift your Mom. Grab a couple nail polishes (I suggest ORLY or Wet N Wild!), a nail file or two, and a bath salt so she can soak her feet. The possibilities are endless!
I looooove body scrubs. I think this one would be perfect as a Mother’s Day gift. You could also add this to a basket with some lotion and a new pair of slippers for a personalized gift!
That’s it for the Mother’s Day Gift Guide! I hope you enjoyed the post. Did anything in this guide spark your interest? Let me know 🙂 Thanks so much for reading, as always <3
