My mom has taught me so much growing up. She was the one that taught me about shopping, getting pampered, and how to do my makeup. Now that I’ve mastered the basics, I am always trying out new products. She frequently asks me if I have recommendations on specific beauty items. Most commonly, if I’ve found an eyeliner or mascara that I love. After I give some recommendations and tell her my favorites she always goes to try it out.
Growing up, I was always interested in makeup. Lately, I have been more and more interested in skincare as I age. #nowrinklesplease I asked my mom the other day what she uses for skin care (besides wrinkle cream) and it’s like crickets were chirping!
Normally, I am not the one to be on top of getting gifts. But, this year I knew exactly what to get my mom for Mother’s Day. Being her only daughter, I got my mom something only a daughter would think to get her; a Birchbox subscription. They let you chose between 3, 6, and 12-month subscriptions and, until May 5th, they are running a 10% promotion when you use the code BESTMOM! I got her a 6-month subscription for about $50! Y’all this isn’t sponsored at all, I just love Birchbox.
I was one of those people that didn’t think I’d actually ever sign up. I said ‘why do I need travel sized products?’ and ‘shouldn’t I just get free samples when I buy things anyway?’ It’s more than just that – it’s nice, luxury brands that you may have never heard of, that you end up falling in love with. Plus each month your box varies depending on the profile you’ve set up. You can get makeup, tools, skincare, and haircare products too! Each time you receive a box you can also give feedback so that each box is tailored more and more for you.
If Birchbox isn’t your thing, I totally get it, so I also wanted to round up some other products that I have either gotten my mom in the past, or I am currently loving (and I know my mom also loves) below!
Let me know what you guys think!
