Celebrating all Mother figures

See what the staff at French Beauty Co are gifting their Mother figures this Mother's Day. They are also spilling some beauty tips passed down through generations.
Celebrating all Mother figures

With Mother’s day just around the corner, we want to share what special product we are gifting our Mother figures. What better way to show our appreciation, than sharing the beauty secrets they have instilled in us.

We also want to take a moment to celebrate the incredible mother figures we are grateful for, who have helped shape us into the people we are today.

What is a beauty tip passed down from your mother figure?

My Granny always taught me less is more. She swears by washing your face often but with super gentle cleansers and layers on too many products is a no go from her. 'Keep it simple stupid' is a classic quote from her.

Why are you grateful for your mother figure?

I look up to my Granny for her strength and humour. I am so grateful that we can laugh all the time together even when things seem a little cray. She is the toughest lady ever.

What are you getting your mother figure, and why?

I am getting my Granny the Compagnie De Provence Shea Butter Hand Cream. This super luxurious hand cream is rich and smells amazing. I cannot wait to give it to her because she is always cleaning and stripping her hands from all the natural oils, and this will help replenish her skin.

As a Mum yourself, what beauty tips do you offer other Mothers?

Try to take 10 minutes for your beauty routine every morning and night. Having a bit of “me time” is very important as a mum or new mum. It could be as simple as doing a quick face mask, putting some perfume or doing your nails to feel yourself again!
 
The other thing I would recommend is to opt for a simple routine with just a few multipurpose products. Beautify your skin in 2 minutes with a light skin tint or bb cream, a bit of blush on the cheeks and a touch of natural lip balms for hydrated lips!
 
What’s the best part about being a Mum?

I love being a mum for all the love and the cuddles I get every day. I love that motherhood changed me. It made me become more patient and enjoy the little things I often took for granted. Motherhood gives a new definition to the word ‘love’ 💕. I discovered a feeling of indefinite love that I didn’t experience before having children.
 
What do you want for Mothers Day, and why?

I would love the Embryolisse Artist Secret Radiant Eye Stick. You immediately feel a cooling sensation that instantly depuffs, brightens and hydrates the eye contour, just like you have had 10 hours of sleep - perfect for me with a newborn and a 3-year-old!

What is a beauty tip passed down from your mother figure?

To use a natural face mask made of yoghurt, honey and turmeric - great to treat acne and also gives your skin an amazing glow!
 
Why are you grateful for your mother figure?

For instilling confidence and self-worth in me and my sisters.
 
What are you getting your mother figure, and why?

I am getting my mum the Bon Parfumeur 101 perfume as she loves floral scents. The packaging is cute, super compact and handbag friendly.

As a Mum yourself, what beauty tips do you offer other Mothers?

As a Mother, I find it difficult to make time for myself. So, looking after my skin is a priority. Working on hydration is key: Drinking lots of water, using a serum in my morning and evening routine and a cooling balm on eye contour, to reduce puffiness for those late nights with feeds.
 
What’s the best part about being a Mum?

I love the connection I have with my son. I love seeing him smile and creating fun adventures and experiences for him. You can relive your childhood through the eyes of your child. It’s pure magic.
 
What do you want for Mothers Day, and why?

I am in love with the SVR Ampoule [B3] Hydra – It’s the perfect addition to my routine, offering a luxurious feel, it doesn’t react with my sensitive skin and it is seriously hydrating. Plus I could always do with a little help to brighten my skin as we head into winter, with the SVR Ampoule [C] Anti-Ox.

What is a beauty tip passed down from your mother figure?

My mum taught me that moisturising my body from head to toe twice daily is vital to soft, supple, glowing skin.
 
Why are you grateful for your mother figure?

My mum taught me to be strong and resilient in any difficult situation, which is priceless.
 
What are you getting your mother figure, and why?

I am gifting my mum the L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil this Mother's Day. She is obsessed with body products, so this is perfect, as it is deeply nourishing and has an irresistible scent of warm almonds and delicious vanilla.
