Every year, Mother’s Day comes around and it’s always such a task to think of what I should get for my mom… the woman who says she has “everything”! In my mind I can’t think of anything to give her that would mean as much as everything she’s done for me (yes, I know that’s a lofty goal and a clunky sentence lol but it’s true!). As we both get older I’m learning that small gestures that show I’m thinking of her go a long way. A gesture that says, “thank you for teaching me how to take care of me, let me do the same for you.”
For us, we love to create together and it just so happens that my mom was a major inspiration for me starting Honey Belle and even helped create our first ever products. So I thought I’d share my top five Honey Belle products inspired by my mom and what I’ll be putting together for my mom friends this Mother’s Day.
Here’s my Honey Belle Mother’s Day Gift Guide:
Look, our Loofah Soaps aren’t sold in major retailers nationwide for no reason. They are simply the best! And with 8 scents to choose from?! Say less.
Our most sustainable product is a double sided shower sidekick with a scrubby side and a soapy side. When you open a fresh Loofah Soap, you can even use the loofah side as a dry brush to get your blood moving and for lymphatic drainage.
My mom loves to use this to get rid of old skin all over her body and once the soap is finished, she gives the loofah another life and scrubs other household things clean.
Mamas also love our Floral + Fruity or Relax + Recover 4-pack set.
Our Detox Mask line is the ultimate DO IT YOURSELF experience where you put your skin’s needs first. Your mom doesn’t need the pricey facial and maybe you can set aside some time to do it together this Mother’s Day.
Our DIY Detox Mask line features 5 scents and makes building a mask for your skin completely custom, just add any liquid of your choice. We know that skin is not created equal.
My mom was the true inspiration for our Ginger Lemon Mask. From the rice for exfoliation to the ginger for the scent, using this mask just makes me think of her.
To pair with whichever DIY Detox Mask you choose, next up is our Dual Mask Brush. There is something about applying a clay mask with a soft bristled brush that feels so good and so “adult-y”.
The brush helps keep the application process easy, clean and even!
One of the things my mom taught me is that the earth naturally makes everything you need to take care of yourself.Our Brown Sugar Lip Scrub is an all natural exfoliant that removes dead/peeling skin and leaves your lips soft, supple, and moisturized.
Lastly, the Gua Sha! For those of you that don’t know, my mom is a holistic doctor of natural medicine and she’s been using a Gua Sha for as long as I can remember. The Gua Sha is the ultimate multitasking tool. When you use it on your face, it’s known as the "Eastern Face Lift", an ancient facial massage technique that promotes detoxification and youthful-looking skin. But did you know you can also use it all over your body to work out knots and ease sore muscles?
For me, if you have to choose one thing from this list to treat your mom to this Mother’s Day, it’s the Gua Sha. Jade, White Jade, or Rose Quartz…there’s a vibe for every mom out there.
