What do you give to show your appreciation for one of the most important people in your life—your mom? If she’s anything like mine, she’ll claim that she “doesn’t really need anything.”
That’s why Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to pamper her with skincare products that she wouldn’t normally buy for herself. Think: high-tech skincare gadgets, effective anti-aging products, and everything she needs for an at-home facial.
Below, find this year’s best skincare gifts that any mom will love.

The Best Skincare Gifts for Mom
NuFace Mini Supercharged Skincare Routine
Microcurrent is one of the few skin-firming treatments that actually does work, and the NuFace Mini Supercharged Skincare Routine has all she needs to get started. This set includes a handheld microcurrent device, which emits painless electrical current to give facial muscles a workout. She also gets a leave-on cream activator (with brush to apply it), a peptide serum, and cute travel bag for treatments on the go.
Shani Darden Glow & Repair Duo
If your mom is looking to start an anti-aging routine, Shani Darden Glow & Repair Duo is the perfect pair of (full-sized) products. One is a lightweight retinol serum, which targets fine lines and dark spots without causing irritation (see my review here). The other is a leave-on lactic acid exfoliating serum, which smooths, brightens and reduces the look of enlarged pores.
Slip x Alice + Olivia Silk Sleep Mask
This Slip x Alice + Olivia Silk Sleep Mask has a fun paisley print and is made from pure, high-quality silk. Not only does it look and feel luxurious, but it will help to block out light so that her beauty sleep isn’t interrupted. Unlike other masks, it absorbs less cream (so anti-aging products stay on the skin), and doesn’t tug on the delicate eye area.
L’Occitane Hand Cream Favorites
L’Occitane Hand Cream Favorites gives her three tubes of nourishing, shea butter-based hand lotion in the brand’s most popular scents: lavender, almond and the original shea butter. What mom doesn’t love hand cream?!
Augustinus Bader The Icons with The Cream
Augustinus Bader The Icons with The Cream is for the mom who is serious about skincare. This luxurious duo includes the brand’s original cult-favourite moisturizer, which is packed with hydrating and anti-aging ingredients. There’s also a matching body cream with a rich but non-greasy texture. Both are fragrance-free.
Dagne Dover Hunter Toiletry Bag
The Dagne Dover Hunter Toiletry Bag is a stylish yet practical toiletry bag to hold her favourite skincare essentials. It’s made of Repreve (a recycled polyester), which is durable and water-resistant. There are interior pockets and elastic loops to keep everything organized, along with a removable zippered mesh pouch. It’s hand-washable, quick-drying and comes in an array of colours.
Foreo Luna 3 for Sensitive Skin
Foreo Luna 3 for Sensitive Skin is a cleansing brush and anti-aging treatment in one. The gentle silicone bristles remove dirt and makeup without irritation, while the reverse side pulsates to increase blood flow and elasticity. There’s also an app to guide her through various facial massage routines.
Herbivore Soak & Soften Set
For the mom who could use some more “me” time, there’s the Herbivore Soak & Soften Set. This trio of pretty products includes a sugar-based body scrub, a calming bath salt blend, and a coconut milk bath soak. They come in glass packaging and are made from all-natural ingredients (which smell good enough to eat!).
Dr. Barbara Sturm Discovery Set
Dr. Barbara Sturm Discovery Set is a six-piece, doctor-formulated skincare routine to help repair and hydrate her skin while giving her a glow. There’s a mild cleanser, a gentle face scrub, a hyaluronic acid ampoule, a face cream, eye cream and body cream (plus a face mask sample). Everything is made with the highest-quality anti-aging ingredients, and the textures are lightweight but surprisingly hydrating.
Mutha Body Butter
Mutha Body Butter is aptly named for a mom gift—and she’ll love what’s inside, too. This indulgent body cream has a rich, whipped texture thanks to its array of natural oils and butters (and no water or fillers). The blend of shea butter, coconut oil, mango seed butter and cocoa butter promises to restore moisture and maintain elasticity.
PMD Personal Microderm Classic
The PMD Personal Microderm Classic is an at-home microdermabrasion device that delivers comparable results to a professional procedure. The technology works the same way—exfoliating discs combined with suction—and you can even customize the exfoliation level with the different discs. Used once a week, it leaves skin baby-smooth and enhances the penetration of topical skincare treatments.
SkinCeuticals Gold Standard Kit Phloretin CF
If dark spots and dullness are her biggest skin struggles, look no further than the SkinCeuticals Gold Standard Kit Phloretin CF. Although it’s an investment, this full-sized kit contains two of the best treatments for proven results. There’s a patented vitamin C serum that protects while it brightens, and a lightweight hydrating gel that supports barrier repair and improves texture.
Caudalie Brightening and Firming Best Sellers Duo
The Caudalie Brightening and Firming Best Sellers Duo is comprised of two full-sized products to brighten, moisturize and plump. The radiance serum has long been a bestseller for targeting dark spots and discolourations, while the night cream hydrates and firms with vegan collagen, resveratrol, peptides and hyaluronic acid.
Kinship Skin Win Duo
If your mom hates wearing sunscreen, the Kinship Skin Win Duo will change her mind. This full-sized set features one of the best, most lightweight sunscreen formulas on the market—which is also incredibly protective, thanks to its high concentration of zinc oxide. She also gets a bottle of a creamy, non-stripping cleanser that is suitable for all skin types.
Tata Harper Glow Facial Set
If your mom loves a good facial, then she’ll love the Tata Harper Glow Facial Set for replicating the results at home. She’ll start with the gentle exfoliating cleanser to polish and prep her skin. Then, the fan-favourite resurfacing mask will get a glow going with natural BHAs and enzymes. She also gets a brush to apply the mask, and a towelette to remove it after 15 minutes.
Skin Gym Rose Quartz Revi Roller
Skin Gym Rose Quartz Revi Roller is the elevated version of a jade roller. The two globes are made from pure rose quartz, and have a deep kneading action that mimics a professional facial massage. The result? A post-facial glow and a more toned look overall.
Fresh Sugar Lip Care Set
The Fresh Sugar Lip Care Set gives her two products to keep her lips soft, smooth and hydrated. One is a leave-on mask that repairs lips overnight with ingredients like shea butter, cholesterol and hyaluronic acid. The other is a clear lip balm that treats dryness, removes dry flakes and plumps the lips for 24 hours.
Red Light Man Red-Infrared Combo Light
Red Light Man Red-Infrared Combo Light is a splurge, yes, but it’s also an incredible treatment for both her skin and overall health. This sturdy, powerful light emits a combination of the most optimal red and infrared light wavelengths, which together can help with wrinkles, sagging, breakouts, wound healing, inflammation and more.
