With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to share the gift I am giving my mom this year. I wanted to make this year’s gift special and beautiful, because my mom is the strongest woman I know. She has made countless sacrifices for our family, is strong and courageous, she’s always there whenever I need her (even in the middle of the night during my many anxiety attacks), and loves my kids more than life. I am so proud to be her daughter and I really wanted to show my appreciation with a gift I know she will love and use.
So, this year my mom’s Mother’s Day gift is the Squalane + Phyto-Retinol Serum by Biossance. Here’s why it’s such an amazing product for moms (and women in general)… It’s a lightweight, powerfully effective serum featuring Bakuchiol, a plant-derived, non-irritating alternative to retinol. It reduces the look of lines and wrinkles while addressing collagen related firmness—without the skin irritation or sensitivity associated with retinol. My mom and I both have really sensitive skin, so being able to use a product that will help our wrinkles and lines and not irritate our skin is absolutely heaven sent.
And if you’re wondering what “Squalane” is:
Squalane is Biossance’s mega-moisturizing molecule. Traditionally harvested from shark livers, they found a way to derive their 100% plant-based squalane sustainably from sugarcane. Featured in every one of their products, this weightless ingredient instantly hydrates while locking in essential moisture. How amazing is that?! I had never heard of it before coming across this product and I think it is the coolest thing ever.
This product would make a great gift for anyone with sensitive skin (but it can be used with all skin types!), anyone who wants the benefits of retinol, but without the irritation or sun sensitivity, and anyone concerned about lines, wrinkles, discoloration or sun damage.
To present my mom with the Squalane + Phyto-Retinol Serum, I got a super cute print of tissue paper and a small gift bag, along with some $4 flowers from the grocery store. This made the gift look so unique and adorable (yet it was so easy and inexpensive to do)!
Presenting the gift to my mama was SO much fun! She absolutely loved it and the look on her face was priceless. She said she couldn’t wait to get home and use it before bed! I would consider that a success. :)
I love you, mom! And happy mother’s day to all the beautiful mamas out there!!
