Mother’s Day Gift Ideas From Boots
If you’re like me, you will be completely unprepared for Mother’s Day. Or Christmas. Or birthdays. Or anniversaries…any important date basically. Mother’s Day seems to creep up on me every year and I am left panic buying anything I can get my hands on. But this year I am going to get major brownie points – thanks to Boots. They sent me these brilliant gift sets and therefore Little Anne won’t go empty handed (I will be getting her something else as well, I’m not a total cheapskate!) Read on to see what’s included in these Mother’s Day gift ideas box sets.
Escentual French Pharmacy Sale
Every few months, escentual.com have a 1/3 off French pharmacy sale and every single time I make an order. Or two. I have spoken at length about my love for French skincare products and I don’t get over to France enough to stock up on bits and bobs so these sales are amazing. I’ve picked my top 8 products from the sale:
If you’re a regular reader of my blog you will know of my love for French skincare. My parents live in France and everytime I go over there I stock up on various products and rely on them to keep my skin happy and healthy. I don’t know what it is about French skincare but I find it so much better for my sensitive and picky skin.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil
This dry oil is from another of my recent French pharmacie hauls. I had heard great things about this oil and was desperate to try it. In the UK you can get this in Marks & Spencer’s for £21 HOLD THE PHONE I have just seen that you can get it on Look Fantastic for £17. I got it in France for about 15 euro – bargain – so if you’re planning on going to France I’d wait and stock up!
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil is a multi-purpose oil: you can use it as a moisturising body oil on dry skin or put it in your bath as an all-over body treat; a pampering facial oil; use it on your cuticles; or on your hair as a conditioning step. I prefer to use it as the latter as it smells absolutely divine – I have been walking around sniffing my hair like a crazy person! It’s a great product to take on holiday for all of the above reasons – you only need one bottle to do all of those jobs!
