It’s nearly Mother’s Day — the time of year we’re reminded of how nice (and necessary) it is to celebrate an important female figure in your life, whether it’s your actual mom or someone who fits that maternal-type role, like a friend, an aunt, a grandmother, or perhaps a teacher or mentor. And while “celebrating” may look different to everyone, here on the beauty side at Refinery29, we’re partial to making someone feel loved and appreciated by way of, well, beauty goodies. (Nothing says, “I am grateful for your existence” like a delicious-smelling, relaxation-inducing skin-care product, ideally when it’s accompanied by a bouquet and luxurious candle, but we digress.)
Whoever you’re thinking of this Mother’s Day, know that a little self-care can go a long way in making them feel truly cherished — and Burt’s Bees is one resource we’re personally tapping into this year as we start shopping. Between sensitive skin-friendly products featuring gentle aloe vera and rice milk and a new bakuchiol-infused range that plumps and nourishes skin sans retinol-induced irritation, the clean and consciously made brand has something for any type of mom in your life, from one who can’t seem to find a second to herself to the one who treats pampering like it’s her job. Flip through to shop the products and get a dose of some helpful gift-giving inspiration.
