Your mom is amazing. She loves you, supports you, and always puts you first. She deserves a little ‘me’ time, and Mother’s Day is the perfect chance for you to spoil and pamper her. Our Beauty Advisors, many of whom are moms too, are sharing their favourite products for indulging in a little rest and relaxation, so you can find the perfect gift for you own mom this Mother’s Day.
Mom shouldn’t just be pampered once a year. This paraffin bath from Revlon will treat her hands, elbows and feet to some TLC whenever she needs it. The warm bath uses thermal heat to ease stiff and aching joints, while removing dull dry surface skin to leave skin soft and beautiful.
Gift mom everything she needs for the perfect pedicure. The Amope Pedi Perfect Pedicure Set comes with a rechargeable foot file, charging station, moisturizing foot cream, custom fit suction shower hook, and an Amope & Veet coupon booklet.
Pick out one of Essie’s new Gel Couture Nail Polishes in mom’s favourite colour, and pair it with a bottle of their Gel Couture Top Coat. The high performance nail polish comes in 42 beautiful shades and lasts for up to 14 days. Best of all, there’s no lamp needed: just apply the couture colour and top coat for impeccable gel-like shine.
This luxurious and sudsy body wash and bubble bath from Bliss is just what mom needs for some downtime. Attach a DIY coupon for a few hours of ‘me time’ so she can enjoy a little relaxation all to herself.
These super hydrating Beauty Rest’ore sheet masks from MaskerAide are infused with Argan Oil, Super Fruit Extracts, Green Algae and Vitamin E, and will go to work right away restoring, regenerating and repairing the skin. Choose a selection of different MaskerAide masks to create your own special Mother’s Day gift basket, specialized depending on her skin’s needs.
Not sure what fragrance mom will like? Our Beauty Advisors recommend Giorgio Armani’s Acqua di Gioia. It’s a fresh aquatic scent that isn’t overpowering, and is ideal for the warm season ahead. Other Beauty Advisor favourites include Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium, Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria, and Lancôme Trésor.

The New Year is a time to look back on the past year, reminisce and maybe resolve to make positive changes. That includes ditching bad beauty habits. London Drugs Beauty Advisors have rounded up the top beauty resolutions from developing a good skincare regimen to tossing expired makeup.
It’s time to take better care of your skin. This year, invest in a quality skincare regimen that will keep your skin healthy and looking great. NeoStrata’s Glycolic Renewal and Night Repair creams will exfoliate dead skin cells for more radiant and younger looking skin. If you have dry, sensitive, or acne-prone skin, try one of Bioderma’s skincare lines which will target your specific skin concern.
The right tools can also improve your skincare routine dramatically. The Philips PureRadiance Facial Cleansing System is 10 times more effective than hand cleansing, thanks to its vibrating and rotating brush.
This is the most versatile manicure of the season! The negative space manicure leaves spaces of the nail bare – a colour cut-out, if you will – and is turning heads in all kinds of shapes and patterns! Beauty Advisor Hollis walks us through how to create a bright, geometric negative space manicure in Essie’s hottest shade for summer: Sunday Funday. Try it yourself, and play around with any pattern or cut-out you like!
