You might at first balk at the fact that we have put hand creams on this list, as they sound so boring. But not these ones by Soap & Paper factory – which your mum would cherish thanks to their nostalgic old-world packaging and uplifting scents (we haven’t managed to find another hand cream that matches the high quality of these ones!).
Our top pick from the hand creams is “Bella’ with bergamot, grapefruit & black pepper, because it was named after the founder’s daughter who was obsessed with drinking Earl Grey (this smells just like a comforting cup of tea!). This scent is the most popular amongst our mum customers, but the “Close”, “Green tea” and “Neroli” scent are also popular choices. You can’t go wrong with any of these – we haven’t met anyone to date that doesn’t like these scents!
Want to see our entire collection? Look how amazing all these hand creams look together below! Above: From left to right: Midnight, Tuberose, Neroli, Close, Lavender, Jasmine, Bella, Green Tea, Marine & Verbena by Soap & Paper factory
What mum doesn’t need a limoncello lip balm in her purse?! These taste divine and come with a handy mirror as well. And for organic great quality ingredients they are affordable at $11sgd each, these will keep mum happy for a while! Check out how pretty the blood orange one looks below!
Now we know what you are thinking: from hand creams, to lip balms to SOAPS?!!! But let us tell you – soaps are the NEXT BIG THING. It’s so much classier than using liquid soap that can look so ugly in the bathroom. You can use these soaps in the bathroom, in the shower instead of body wash – and these ones by Bottega Organica are SUPER LUXURIOUS! They have their own in-house organic farm in Italy, and you can be assured these soaps use the finest ingredients around that not only smell incredible but are also great for your skin. Our favourite pick is the lavender soap (pictured below) thanks to it’s subtle scent that reminds you of walking through lavender fields (not like those cheap imitation products that create a “soapy” smell).
4. Foot spa series by Carnation; $14sgd
This foot scrub & cream allows for mum to either pamper herself at home DIY style, or she could take it along to the salon and request they use these instead for an extra luxurious experience! The scrub uses walnut shell to create baby smooth feet and the foot cream with peppermint oil is cooling and perfect for swollen feet in the Singapore heat!
5. A big kiss and cuddle and tell your Mum how special she is to you
We don’t sell number 5 on our store, but we think mum’s are SO awesome, and want to give a big shout out to them for all the hard work they do! THE most important job in the world, so thanks for everything, Mum!
