Spring, summer, fall, winter…there’s no season that goes by that your mother is not involved in some way, and in some part of your life. But just because Mother’s Day falls in springtime, that doesn’t mean that the treats you give your mom shouldn’t span all the seasons of the year.
You’ll never know when she needs her shea butter-infused hand cream, but you can make sure she has it handy. Here are some of our perennial (and seasonal) picks for the person who made you more than a shadow of yourself.
Neutrogena Moisture Shine Gloss: This is a soft, wearable lipgloss that comes in an array of sorbet shades and spring colors that are sheer and wearable. The entire spring palette lives in these beauties that are filled with a triple berry antioxidant complex –including Acai, Goji and Aronia berries–that improves the look of lips over time.
