Mother's Day Gift Guide 2015

We are celebrating Mother's Day today. Have you bought a gift for your mom? If you haven't, here are some last-minute gift ideas for mom on her special day.

Avene Sunscreen

Avene Sunscreen Php 1,650

I totally wish I brought Avene Sunscreen with me when my family and I went to Disneyland over a week ago. Hong Kong weather is pretty hot, hot, hot! The sunscreen I brought left white streaks all over my face and arms. My daughter looked at me in a weird way when she saw me. I gasped when I saw myself in the mirror. Que horror!

Anyway, Avene Sunscreen is great for dry and sensitive skin. Perfect for mothers like me who is always out under the sun.  It has a very broad spectrum of SPF 50+ with exclusive ingredients like Sunsitive Protection, Pre-tocopheryl (powerful anti-oxidant) and of course, Avene Thermal Spring Water (soothing and anti-irritating properties).

Avene Sunscreen is:

  •  Water Resistant
  • Hypoallergenic 
  • Non Comedogenic
  • Paraben-Free
  • Fragrance-Free

I love and highly recommend this product because there's no white streaks upon application, blends easily on skin and there's no-sticky feel like most of the available sun protectors out there.

For the work-from-home mom, I would recommend Timeless Ferment Sun Cream. This is great especially if your mom occasionally steps out of the door to run a few errands. This new sunscreen from Tony Moly offers SPF 47 PA++ for optimum protection from the sun's harmful rays. The cream contains fermented snail filtrate from snails fed with golden tea. This filtrate has anti-wrinkle, brightening, and nourishing properties. Best of all, it's non-greasy, perfect for summer days!

A different climate may take its toll on skin's moisture, this cream contains Argan Oil which moisturizes, nourishes, ans promotes skin regeneration. It also contains 56% Safflower extract that hydrates and improves skin tone.

Other variants are Chocolate Chip Cookies, White Chocolate Chip Macademia Cookies, Dark and White Chocolate Chip Cookies and Double Chocolate Chip Cookies.
