Make Mom's Day

Make Mom's Day

Mom might say what she wants most is your time and appreciation, but national surveys reveal that a card alone just doesn’t cut it; neither do flowers (they die), or a gift certificate (she might lose it). The can’t-go-wrong gifts: Anything pampering! When a spa getaway isn’t in the cards, a spa staycation is the next best thing. At-home treatments are not only big beauty time savers for mom... she’ll be impressed how you saved your money!

A facial: Get mom glowing with a deep cleansing facial like JOAH Charcoal Mask, available in wash-off and peel-off options. The charcoal formula cleans and minimizes pores, removes blackheads, temporarily reduces oiliness, and more.

The best makeup: You can’t go wrong when you gift mom prestige beauty products at drugstore prices! JOAH’s Better than the Best collection of primers, eye pencils, mascara and other cosmetics are preferred over the #1 prestige products in an independent blind test.

An instant mani-pedi: She’ll feel better about her tips and toes when you wrap up imPRESS Press-on Manicure and Press-on Pedicure, in matching or coordinating designs, @ $7.99 each. With no glue needed, she’ll achieve a flawless gel mani & pedi in minutes! Even better, present her with an assortment of nail colors and designs to hold her for the long run.

A helping hand: Fill a reusable shopper tote with hand lotion, cuticle cream, a manicure set, and a hand treatment to moisturize dry skin like KISS Hand Mask Gloves (with touchpads so she can stay connected while the gloves work their magic). Mom’s hands will look like they never have to lift a finger, thanks to argan oil, collagen and vitamin E.

A foot soother/smoother: Pick up a pretty bin or something similar mom can soak her feet in; fill it with bath salts, spa stones and KISS Foot Mask Socks, all wrapped up in a big fluffy towel. Mom’s tired tootsies will love you for lavishing them with goodness.
