A luxurious face mask, followed by a silky cream and a nourishing facial oil massage-–if this sounds like the pampering skincare experience you’d like to give your mother for Mother’s Day, look no further than Glowie Co! We’re going to break down our favorite products, just perfectly in time for Mother’s Day. (Did we mention our fast and free shipping over $35 for all US customers?)
Naruko Taiwan Magnolia Brightening and Firming Lotion EX
Naruko’s Magnolia collection is an absolute godsend for maturing skin. The two titular main benefits, brightening and firming, are delivered in full force with Naruko’s masterful formulation of local Taiwanese ingredients and well-known skincare powerhouses in this facial lotion. Tripeptides deeply penetrate the skin to lift saggy skin and diminish fine lines, plumping the skin for a smooth, youthful complexion.
Taiwan Magnolia Flower Water protects the skin from sun damage and premature aging, while tranexamic acid, niacinamide, and Vitamin C brighten an uneven skin tone to its most radiant potential.
Plus, phytoferulin, Naruko’s exclusively patented complex consisting of 11 different plant extracts such as licorice root extract to ginkgo biloba leaf extract, combats hyperpigmentation and protects against environmental stressors.
The Magnolia Brightening and Firming Lotion even refines skin texture and improves skin’s overall clarity.
CosRX Advanced Snail 92 All in one Cream
CosRX’s Advanced Snail line is almost universally agreed upon in the KBeauty community as a savior for dull, lifeless skin. Who could forget the craze over their CosRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence around 2018? While their Snail Mucin Essence is also a lovely choice to bestow upon your mom, we think the Advanced Snail 92 All in one Cream is secretly the unsung hero of CosRX’s Advanced Snail line!
As skin matures, it loses elasticity from decreasing collagen production. Collagen, a protein building block that helps skin to repair and regenerate, is incredibly important for skin structure. To regain some of that bounciness, maturing skin benefits greatly from collagen-boosting and skin-regenerating ingredients such as snail mucin! Snail mucin contains growth factors, copper peptides, and glycolic acid to stimulate collagen production. As an added bonus, it also has the dual function of moisturizing skin while protecting skin from external irritants!
Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream
Heimish’s Marine Care Eye Cream is luxury in a jar. A little goes a long way with this product, and consistent usage at night will allow for the undereye areas to absorb nutrients and minerals from fermented seaweed extract and seawater. As any good eye cream worth its salt (no pun intended!) should, the Marine Care Eye Cream increases resilience and elasticity with peptides, collagen, adenosine, and plant stem cell extracts.
The eye cream can also be used on any other areas of the face that need a little extra love—we recommend applying on the skin around the lips, which tend to be drier and more prone to fine lines.
For even better results, apply the Marine Care Eye Cream with the included cooling roller ball! Gently massage the cream into delicate areas with the roller ball to reduce puffiness and stimulate circulation.
If you’re worried about over moisturizing the undereye area, see another option from Heimish below!
Heimish Bulgarian Rose Water Hydrogel Eye Patch
Hear us out: you could get a bouquet of roses for your mom, or give her Heimish’s Bulgarian Rose Water Hydrogel Patch instead! It’s roses too, but oh-so-spa-like and luxurious! Each jar comes with 60 niacinamide and adenosine-infused hydrogel patches that adhere perfectly to the skin, improving the absorption of its plumping and brightening formula.
Bulgarian rose water soothes and hydrates the skin, thoroughly rejuvenating tired undereyes. It strengthens the skin barrier, enhances skin elasticity, and even reduces redness for a supple, well-rested complexion.
As with the Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream, these can actually be used on any areas that are feeling dry and dehydrated. Go ahead and stick these on the forehead, undereyes, smile lines, or neck! Or, if an all-over application is more appealing, here’s a fun fact: these hydrogel patches are water-soluble and can be used as an essence when dissolved in hot water! Neat, huh?
MEDIHEAL Collagen Essential Lifting & Firming Mask
Mediheal’s Collagen Essential Lifting & Firming Mask smooths, plumps, and restores maturing skin with a super-conditioning essence. The 100% cotton linter sheet mask fits seamlessly into the contours of the face, increasing and maximizing the absorption of collagen, elastin, peptides, beta-glucan, aloe vera, and more into the skin.
In just 15 minutes, this mask will fill out fine lines, minimize the appearance of wrinkles, and improve elasticity for an immediate glow-up. These come in affordable packs of 5 or 10, but we encourage getting the pack of 10 for consistent usage and best results!
(Although this mask is specifically formulated for anti-aging purposes, it’s become known as a great hydrating sheet mask for dry skin in general! As such, the Collagen Essential Lifting & Firming Mask is a fantastic option for mature skin on the drier side.)
Naruko Supreme Rejuvenating Elixir Oil
Remember when we said Naruko makes some of the best products for mature skin? Their Jing Cheng line is right up there with (or maybe even higher than!) their Magnolia line. Naruko’s Jing Cheng products are top-of-the-line, premium offerings from Taiwanese beauty king Niu Er, and contain Actuat E60, a proprietary blend of 60 Western and Eastern ingredients formulated to target dull, loose skin. Some botanical extracts within Actuat E60 include panax ginseng root extract, snow fungus extract, rice bran extract, and willow bark extract to name just a few.
The Supreme Rejuvenating Elixir Oil is a brightening and anti-aging masterpiece, with Coenzyme Q10 to protect the skin from external irritants, energize the skin, and neutralize free radicals. Plus, it delivers these benefits without overwhelming the skin with an onslaught of oil. The elixir oil consists of 80% oil-based ingredients and 20% water-based ingredients for a lightweight, non-greasy facial oil.
Treat your mother to the finest Asian Beauty has to offer! From skin-strengthening ingredients like collagen, peptides, and niacinamide to brightening ingredients like Vitamin C and licorice root extract, Asian skincare is the best way to pamper your mother this Mother’s Day!
We at Glowie Co are wishing you and your family a joyful Mother’s Day filled with much love, quality time, and relaxation!
