This weightless vegan Radiance Brightening Cream is perfect for busy mums that don’t get as much sleep as they’d like! Dark circles can be caused by lack of sleep, ageing, stress, eye strain and environmental factors, and this REN eye treatment reduces them from seven days.

Made with a 95% natural blend of clean ingredients – including elderberry and plant-derived glycogen – the cream reveals bright, firm and fresh eyes. The whipped cream texture is almost like a rich balm which makes for a sensorial treat, while the vivid orange packaging it’s held in is made of 87% recycled plastic.

The entire eye area is refreshed as puffiness is diffused to help fake that good night’s sleep look.

I know many of us would love to get away right now, so why not give your mum a fragrance experience that will transport the senses while soothing the mind? The Tisserand Aromatherapy National Geographic Paradise collection comprises a soothing rollerball, a luxurious bath oil and an uplifting mood mist, all infused with mood-boosting 100% essential oils. Each traditional apothecary bottle is made of 100% recycled and recyclable materials, and are held in a handy reusable wash bag perfect for trips away. Even the ink and glue used to make the labels are derived from renewable sources (such as corn and linseed) so can be easily recycled and use less energy than UV inks and oil.

Tisserand Aromatherapy has an eco-friendly ethos that ensures their products are good for both wellbeing and the planet. The 100% natural ingredients offer a deeply relaxing blend that boosts the mood and happiness. With an exotic fragrance – which blends joyful notes of zingy grapefruit, sparkling mandarin and sensuous jasmine – that’s reminiscent of being sat on a beach in paradise. The power of aromatherapy combines imagination and scent to ease stressed minds and transport the senses to a beautiful faraway beach, using natural extracts from Egypt, USA and Brazil to offer your mum a blissful moment of pampering.
