The Most Luxe Mother’s Day Beauty Gifts To Treat Mom This Year

The folks at L'Oréal were onto something good when they popularized the phrase "because you're worth it" way back in the '70s. And while the catchy slogan was more or less conceived to sell endless tubes of lipstick, we can't help but appreciate the empowering sentiment that reminds us to choose and love ourselves every day. And it goes without saying that there's no one more deserving of exactly that than our very own moms.

They work hard day in and day out, and while we probably don't say thank you enough, Mother's Day allows us to remind mom of just how much we love and appreciate her sage advice, shoulder to cry on (over FaceTime), and yes, her consistent, endearing typos over text.

If there's one splurge-worthy gift idea that she's guaranteed to love (and actually use), it's a beauty product. From customizable lipsticks to the face cream that's liquid gold, we're making the case for indulging mom this year — especially if you're not able to celebrate in-person with a bear hug and flowers. After all, you may not always treat yourself to a fancy gift, but treating mama is always money well spent.

We’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. 

Sisley Paris Black Rose Cream Mask

If you treat your mom to one splurge-worthy skin-care item, a potent face mask will get you the best bang for your buck. Sisley's beloved cream mask is like a facial in a tube, and your mom will feel like the star she is.

Diptyque Baies Hourglass Diffuser 2.0

Leave it to Diptyque to create a diffuser that more closely resembles a work of art. If your mom loves the complex, berry-scented Baies candle, level up her home fragrance to this luxe item, which she'll love as much for its aroma as she will its appearance.

By Terry Baume De Rose

Good things come in small packages...especially when it's a tiny pink box of By Terry's top-selling Baume De Rose. (P.S. We also love the tinted options for sheer, glossy color with the same hydrating benefits.)
