Not sure what to give your moms this coming Mother’s Day? We round up a list of must-haves—from skincare to travel essentials, and more!

Our moms are the heart and soul of our families. Her tireless dedication is incomparable. Likewise, her love for her children and grandchildren knows no bounds.  So, it’s but fitting that we treat the lady of the house like the queen that she is! This Mother’s Day, let’s make our moms feel extra special.

Here are some wonderful gift ideas that will surely please her:

8. Perfumes from ARTÉL Manila (IG: @artelmanila)

Specially formulated with the Philippine weather in mind, Artel Manila Parfums are made with a high concentration of scented oils and have zero water content. This allows for long-lasting wear—day or night.

Artél’s latest perfume line is inspired by Robert Greene’s “The Art of Seduction.” It pays tribute to distinct types of temptresses, namely: Le Charisme, Le Femme Fatale, The Dreamer, the Siren, The Natural, the Star, and The Lover.  The original formulations, which come in 30 ml bottles, are composed of citrus, crisp, floral, and subdued scents that may be used singularly or layered to create a more intense and unique fragrance.

Visit www artelmanila.com and @artelmanila on Instagram for more information.

Proudly Filipino! ARTÉL perfume bottles are packaged in pristine white boxes that are gift-ready. Its Mother’s Day promotion includes complimentary printing services on gift tags and free shipping for two or more orders.

7. Pampering and Massages by Bioessence (IG: @bioessence_ph)

The pandemic had all of us missing out on essential R&R services. Now is the time to take advantage of soothing massages, rejuvenating facials, and slimming treatments. Bioessence boasts of 27 successful years in the beauty industry and considers true pampering as the core of its brand. In fact, on weekends, almost all timeslots of its 30 branches nationwide are booked.

My favorites are the Ventosa and hot stone massage, as well as the Oxygen Caviar Protein treatment—an incredibly luxurious facial that uses Oxygen Ceuticals products and four machines: Radiofrequency, Photodynamic Therapy Light, Oxygen Infusion, and Ultrasonic, which leave the skin nourished and glowing. Slimming services like the Thermalift for the face (PHP 3,000) and Thermashape for the body (PHP 3,500) are also popular treatments.

1. Skincare Goodies from The Unbranded Skincare (IG: @theunbrandedskincare)

Is it possible to have a complete skin regimen with just three products? The Unbranded Skincare says yes!

To achieve healthy glowing skin—comparable to a Korean glass complexion—you only need a Cleansing Wash to cleanse and correct, a Day Shield or a broad-spectrum sunblock, and an Overnight Cream for skin rejuvenation. Active ingredients of the brand include squalene, collagen, allantoin, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and centella asiatica.

The best part? Each product is formulated to suit even the most sensitive of skin and is safe to be used by pregnant and lactating women, too.

The online shop may be viewed at @theunbrandedskincare on Instagram.

Skinimalism—Say NO to superfluity and YES to these three hardworking, multi-functional products.

Here’s wishing all the hardworking moms a Happy Mother’s Day! Cheers!
