So Beautiful: Summer Beauty Essentials from The Body Shop for Mother’s Day

The Body Shop is a perennial fave destination for picking up pampering products for mom on Mother’s Day…but instead of going the bath and body care route, why not look into the brand’s awesome beauty products? I’m highlighting a few summer beauty essentials that’ll make mom look radiant!

TBS Shade Adjusting Drops

Shade Adjusting Drops – $22 each
This is such an ingenious idea I can’t believe I’ve never seen it again. If you’ve ever had a foundation that’s not *quite* your skin tone (especially as it darkens in the summer), this is the product for you. Add a drop to your foundation to either lighten or darken it a half-shade until you’ve got the perfect tone. Perfect for perfectionist moms!

TBS Matte Lip Liquid

Matte Lip Liquid – $15 each
Matte lipstick is having a major moment right now. It’s easy to apply for a rich, saturated look in a flash, and it generally stays all day, even when the heat is blazing in the summer. Coming in 12 shades, The Body Shop’s formulation promises not to dry out your lips while delivering trendy, stay-put colour.

TBS Honey Bronze Drops of Sun

Honey Bronze Drops of Sun Holiday Glow Creator – $22
So you spend your days in an office but want to look like you’ve spent them resting by the beach? This washable instant bronzing formula is your new best friend. Apply directly to your body for a covetable glow, or mix it into your foundation or lotion for a more subtle effect. A must-have to avoid pasty leg syndrome!

TBS Matte Lipstick

Colour Crush Matte Lipstick – $15
Shimmer and sparkle is so a decade ago – both literally fashion-wise and in terms of what’s appropriate for mom’s pucker. The Body Shop’s matte lipsticks come in 7 bold hues that finish matte (#90sareback). Plus, they’re enriched with nourishing beeswax and Brazil nut oil so her lips won’t dry out.
