As Mother’s Day is coming up, I’ve created a list of the best skincare products that would make great Mother's Day gifts. From nourishing body butters to cleansing body washes, and smoothing face oils to plumping sheet masks, these are the indulgent products by Sanctuary Spa and Aromatherapy Associates London we can’t live without.

We really love all of the products below, and we hope you will too! That’s why I’m giving you Glossies the chance to win them all (they'd make great Mother's Day Gifts!).

This competition is now closed. The lucky winner of these Mother's Day gifts was Kira Cookson.



Sanctuary Spa: Body Wash

My mum and I are both big fans of Sanctuary Spa. They have an amazing range of bodycare products, including moisturisers, scrubs, washes, and creams. Surprisingly though, I only recently discovered Sanctuary Spa’s classic Body Wash. Infused with essential oils and jojoba beads, it creates a refreshing and fragrant foam. Though you can apply it with your hands, I’d recommend using a loofah or body puff to really help it lather.
This wash cleanses my body, leaving it refreshed and smelling amazing.

Sanctuary Spa: Body Butter

My favourite Sanctuary Spa product, though, is undoubtedly their Body Butter. Blending shea and cocoa butter with sweet almond and macadamia nut oil, it melts into the skin and leaves a light, fresh and natural scent that lasts all day.
My skin feels nourished and smooth to the touch.
I actually bought my mum the mini 50ml version as a Christmas stocking gift, and she’s been using it ever since. We both massage it into our skin every morning after showering. It effectively hydrates and moisturises both my dry skin and her sensitive complexion.

Sanctuary Spa: The Mother’s Day Indulgence Box

As part of my Mother’s Day bundle give-away, you’ll also receive a nourishing and non-greasy hand cream, a softening and refining body scrub, and a liquid gold bath elixir that boasts a relaxing rose flower water scent. These three products, plus the two mentioned above, can be purchased as part of Sanctuary Spa’s Mother’s Day Indulgence Box. Worth over £40, you can buy yours for just £20.

Aromatherapy Associates London: Hydrating Revitalising Face Oil

My mum first introduced me to this brand. She’s been using their Hydrating Revitalising Face Oil under her anti-ageing moisturiser for about a year now, and she loves it.
My complexion appears smoother and firmer.
Formulated with luxurious frankincense essential oils and natural plant extracts, this facial oil helps to rejuvenate and revitalise dull skin. It also contains rose oil which works to smooth and firm your complexion, giving it a radiant boost. Though you can use this facial oil morning and night after cleansing and toning (that’s what the brand recommends for best results), my mum prefers to use it as part of her evening ritual. It gives the oil more time to soak into her skin. She applies two pumps to her face and neck, massaging it firmly into her skin. She then follows up with her trusty Elizabeth Arden night cream.

Aromatherapy Associates London: Hydrosol Sheet Mask

When I was researching this brand, I came across this highly-recommended sheet mask which promises to firm, plump and hydrate your complexion. So, of course, I had to try it! It contains frankincense, an ancient healing hydrosol, that firms and smooths out fine lines, as well as hyaluronic acid and turmeric which work together to improve the texture of your skin. Apply this to clean and dry skin for 10 minutes, then peel off starting at the bottom and massage any remaining serum into your skin. You can then apply a couple of drops of the Hydrating Revitalising Face Oil. And voila, a glowing complexion!

Aromatherapy Associates London: The Renew And Nourish Rose Edit

If you’re still looking for the perfect skincare ritual bundle, their Renew And Nourish Rose Edit makes a great gift. Start by lathering the Renewing Rose Body Wash into your skin in the shower, then dry off and massage the Renewing Rose Hydrating Body Gel into your body to hydrate it. You can then use the Renewing Rose Body Cream to finish off your bodycare routine. This kit also includes the Hydrosol Sheet Mask and Hydrating Revitalising Face Oil mentioned above. Enjoy your DIY spa treatment! It's relaxation at its best.
