As soon as April turns into May, I usually begin anxiously scanning the internet in preparation for the second Sunday of the month. Finding something suitable enough for the most important person in my life tends to cause me deep stress. I’m at peace with gifting silly it’s-the-thought-that-counts things to my friends, but my Mother’s Day gift must be equal parts chic and heartfelt, exciting and useful. In an added bit of overachiever criteria, I’d also like for my mom to love my gift completely.
Luckily, researching beauty staples and working at Inesscents, you could say that skin care products are something that I have in my sights regularly. My mom, while not particularly tapped into the beauty world, is and always has been a diligent groomer, making her an ideal candidate for a beauty gift.
Since the furthering launch of our Salvation CBD Skin Care line, this year I have my Mother’s Day entourage of gifts consisting of ‘one part usefulness’ and one part ‘I know she is going to love this’ already packed up and ready to go (#stresslessin2019!). Let me give you a little more insight into these new products and mom-friendly and sure to bring her a smile this Mother's Day.
In addition to full spectrum CBD, this new amazing cleanser contains Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Sea Kelp and Organic Mandarin among many other choice botanicals for the skin. This calming cream cleanser will effectively remove makeup and general pollutant accumulation of the day, while leaving moms skin cleansed, soft and supple with a light citrus aroma. It’s excellent for all skin types and all ages of skin.
Fresh Flower Hemp Hydrosol
I love our Fresh Flower Hemp Hydrosol. Its aroma is citrusy, herbaceous, resinous as its produced from agricultural hemp is simply the aromatic water created when fresh hemp flowering tops are steam distilled. It contains a rich array of beneficial and supportive terpenes, known to be calming and soothing for the skin. This hydrosol is designed to be used as a toner and to work in harmony with our balms and serums.
This light and bright serum includes (or highlights) a rich base of organic jojoba, rosehip and argan oils. Then it's infused with delicate botanicals such as calendula, chamomile and lavender; essential oils of frankincense, helicrysum (also known as immortelle), and a touch of lemon. All of this is artfully blended together to offer the skin rejuvenation. What mom doesn't need a little skin boosting love??? This serum is excellent for all skin types and all ages of skin.
CBD + Immortelle Balancing Beauty Cream
This balancing facial cream has got to be my number one NEW FAVE for everyone – moms included! It’s perfectly silky, lightweight and incredibly nourishing. What more could you ask from a moisturizer? Harnessing the healing powers of hemp and formulated with some of nature’s most precious botanical oils, this luxurious cream is sure to help your momma get out and glow this Mother’s Day (and every day!).
This botanically based protective balm boasts many calming herbs and oils such as chamomile, raspberry, carrot seed, tamanu oil, lavender and Vitamin A. It is light and designed to support the vibrancy of the skin and maintain its delicate softness. I love this balm for year round use – it’s so wonderfully hydrating and the scent is divine. My mom fell in love with this when I gave it to her over the holidays and I know she will be happy to be re-stocked!
This new facial butter is a golden, lightweight and highly nourishing facial moisturizer. Rose is so incredibly nourishing and healing. My mom loves the smell of our OG Rose Sandalwood Mango Butter so I have little to no doubt that she will be over the moon about this new product. This will be a perfect night cream for her and I can't wait (I love being excited about getting the right gifts for mom!).

When I think about my mom and everything that she has done (and continues to do) for me, it feels impossible to give back to her all that she has given. My mom worked so hard to provide for me. She is my best friend and my truest soulmate. I know she doesn't need gifts from me to show her my love, but I do enjoy being able to surprise her with something special. On top of this skin care package, I handmade a card, bought some flowers to plant around her garden pots, and am planning on cooking her favorite meal (mac n’ cheese!). I’m so grateful that we have a holiday like Mother’s Day to remind us to take that extra step towards gratitude. To all the beautiful mother’s out there, may you be blessed with a golden May 12 th and celebrated for all that you are!
PS - I also want to take a small moment to recognize and honor the mother of Inesscents herself, Amber Ashley. Thank you for creating such an amazing brand, workplace and second home for all of us. Not only are you a mom to a beautiful son helping him shine his light in the world, but you are the queen of this ship, and we ALL wanna let you know, we love you, and wish you a magical upcoming Mother's Day.
