Rouge Dior Mother's Day Limited Edition, RM166

PowerBright Dark Spot Serum, RM468
Dealing with sunspots and hyperpigmentation is no joke, especially as the skin matures. It only makes sense to treat mum to the best in anti-hyperpigmentation tech this Mother's Day. The latest PowerBright Dark Spot Serum by Dermalogica harnesses the powers of Niacinamide and Hexylresorcinol to target dark spots and fade them out.
It's no two-man job, though—the serum comes jam-packed with other incredible active goodies such as: Beta glucan-rich Shiitake mushroom, which works to brighten skin; antioxidant-rich Indian ginseng, which smoothes the skin; blackcurrant oil and peony flowers to deliver that luminous glow; and anti-pollution actives to prevent pesky hyperpigmentation from rearing again.
Miller Harris London
Rose Silence, RM587
Subvert mum's expectations of the rose with this modern fragrance. Gone are the days of the rose as a gimmick and a cheap thrill—Miller Harris London's Rose Silence puts pure rose at the heart of their fragrance.
The pure floral unfolds like never before with the help of Italian bergamot, tangerine, and elemi gum at its top, creamy iris butter and warm cashmere at its heart, and Indonesian patchouli, Haitian vetiver and leather at its base.
Omnia by Mary Katrantzou, RM452
This particular fragrance gift is a treat for both mum and her bedroom vanity: Inspired by and created for the Bvlgari Omnia Collection, designer Mary Katrantzou has added an exclusive new fragrance to the collection, clad in a one-of-a-kind bi-colour bottle design.
Created in collaboration with Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas, the multifaceted, joyful, and vibrant scent is reminiscent of an olfactory kaleidoscope of sorts. Comprised of mandarin essence and fig leaf in its top notes, gardenia and Mediterranean orange blossom at its heart, and a rich musk at its base, this floral eau de parfum is a wonderful way to tell mum how much you care.
Omnia by Mary Katrantzou is available now at Bvgalri department stores, or online here.
Black Rose Beautifying Emulsion, RM600
As is custom with every Asian mother, having a great body lotion on-hand is a must. However, instead of having mum settle for any old body lotion, take this Mother's Day as an opportunity to help her step up her body care game. Enter: The Black Rose Beautifying Emulsion.
There's a reason this particular line is such a hit at Sisley—harnessing the power of smoothing and brightening Black Rose, the extract smells as incredible as it works. Aside from luminising and conditioning the skin, the sensorial experience that comes with this creamy, ultra-hydrating body emulsion will help mum feel as radiant as she looks!

There's no better treat for mum than the gift of self-care—and what better way is there for a lovely lady to wind down than an indulgent soak in the tub? Lucky for mum, Lush is back with yet another topical collection, and this time, it's expertly curated for mumma dearest.
