Our moms and family matriarchs have taught us so much, from TLC to tough love. In honor of Mother’s Day, we asked some of our staff for some advice from their mamas or other the maternal figures in their lives that stuck with them and what they’ll be gifting them this second Sunday in May.
Here’s what they said:
Senior Digital Designer
My mother has always taught me to be thankful for how fortunate I am and that many people are struggling more than me. I still remind myself to be happy and grateful for what I have every day.
I’m gifting my mother Advanced Retinol Nightly Moisturizer (The larger one!) I love the product, and I know she will too. It’s a fantastic addition to any nighttime routine and is a pro-aging powerhouse.
My mom has always been a tough-love type. But the older I get, I agree with her more and her thoughts on staying single, enjoying a peaceful life, and the importance of seeing the world.
I will be gifting my mom our TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream PLUS, as she has concerns about neck lines. Also, Super-C Retinol Brighten & Correct Vitamin C Serum for her hyperpigmentation.
Director of Creative Operation
My mother always said, “any issues, go to the top” – for counterbalance, my father’s advice was, “Remember, everyone is human,” –so I learned early on it’s all about balance!
I always think of Mother’s Day gifts as those products that you typically wouldn’t buy, unique and wonderful and a true indulgence. I love the Strivectin Crepe Control™ Tightening Body Cream and the Crepe Control™ Brightening & Firming Hand Cream. The products are deeply hydrating with a beautiful fragrance that is not overbearing.

My mother always said “treat others the way you want to be treated”, and it’s something I try to live by to this day.
A skincare fanatic (and frequent dry skin sufferer), my mom has been asking about a few different areas of concern – most notably, her neck and hands.
She’ll be excited to receive our new Peptight™ Tightening Neck Serum Roller and our SD Advanced™ PLUS Intensive Moisturizing Concentrate.
She’s the kind of person who lathers on cream as if her tube was endless, so a boost in her fast-depleting inventory will be much welcomed.

Funnily enough, my grandmother told me that “beauty hurts.” I don’t know if I agree with that literally, but I know what she meant and interpreted it into something positive. That investing time and effort into your skincare and makeup routine are worth it. But yes, tweezing eyebrows and waxing sure does hurt. ;)
This Mother’s Day, I’ll be gifting my mother our Super-B Barrier Strengthening Oil.
It’s so luxe and yummy and feels like a spa treatment meets skincare. I love how hydrating it is and how it melts into the skin. I’ll also be gifting her our new Super-C SPF 30 Vitamin C Moisturizer. I know she will love the brightness boost and the fresh, citrus scent.
