BEAUTY KNOWHOW: Say thanks for having me…

 …on Mother’s Day next week with our pick of lip-plumping, complexion-boosting, fabulous-smelling gifts.

The decadent dip

Jo Loves White Rose and Lemon Leaves Bath Cologne, £55,

The bestselling perfume in a decadent bath cologne. Leaves skin gently scented without an oily residue. The perfect treat for a tired-out mum!

The super smoother

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair, from £55,

This classic serum utilises skin’s natural night-time renewal to reduce the appearance of fine lines and boost the complexion. Plus it’s fragrance- and oil-free.

The pout plumper

YSL Volupté Plump-in-Colour, £29,

The iconic moisturising lipstick now boasts a heart-shaped balm core with peppermint oil and black pearl powder to give a high-shine finish and make lips look fuller.

The hottest flame

Anya Hindmarch Baby Powder Candle, £50,

Inspired by the joy of new babies and scented with violet leaf, rose petal, tonka bean and musk, this gets extra cool points thanks to its signature Anya Hindmarch sticker.

The pulse racer

Jo Malone London Wildflowers & Weeds Lupin & Patchouli Cologne, £49,

With its gorgeous glass bottle, this limited-edition fragrance combines uplifting notes of lupin and patchouli brightened with vibrant mandarin.

The wake-up call

Decléor Néroli Bath & Shower Gel, £18,

Ninety eight per cent natural and with a pH neutral base that’s kind to skin, this is super energising, too. It also comes in relaxing Lavender and soothing Rose D’Orient.

The do-good goodies

Space NK x Selfish Mother Beauty Bag, £50,

Not only does it boast Selfish Mother’s ‘LOLOVE’ design, chic leopard-print lining and six luxe products, but £5 (plus VATAT) from each sale will go to domestic abuse charity Refuge.

The bouquet in a bottle

Mon Guerlain Bloom of Rose, from £49,

Modern classic Mon Guerlain eau de toilette gets a lively refresh thanks to the addition of rose and neroli. Guerlain calls it ‘a tribute to today’s femininity’. We call it charming.
