Mother Knows Best : Celebrating Mothers Day With Nivea

Disclaimer: This post contains products that were kindly gifted by Nivea. All opinions and thoughts remain my own.

Mothers Day is one of those days where I can almost guarantee I won’t see my mum. Being a hard working florist, this is probably one of those days where all my mum really wants to do when she finally escapes work is relax and who could blame her?

A few things about my mum (because you’ve got to be a little soppy in this type of post right?)

For up until my early teens my mum was basically a single parent but I never missed out on great experiences and the memories I have from my childhood are pretty magical.

I grew up with the understanding that I can do anything I put my mind to regardless of who says otherwise, because of her. My mum is one tough cookie and I’m not sure she really sees that for herself.

I mean look at me.. I’ve always been protected from elements of the “big bad world”, no ruffians, thugs, poison ivy or quicksand has ever been something I’ve had to face. And I know you get that reference.

So let’s get back on track.

I guess you could say my mum (after a long day at work) actually likes to be locked away in her tower and while she is in there trying to escape from the outside world, there’s some products that will certainly make her feel a little pampered.

Nivea Cherry Blossom Shower Creme

We’ve all been there, when you finally get home after a long day of fighting crime with frying pans (or you know, a typical job) and all you want to do is sit down and put your feet up. But you can never feel truly settled until you’ve had a shower can you?

*This shower cream is both practical and indulgent without you needing to dedicate an hour to feel truly pampered. The cherry blossom-scented formula lathers up nicely and leaves your skin feeling incredibly moisturised. What more could you want?

Nivea Wild Raspberry and White Tea Body Mousse

There’s just something fancy about the idea of a body mousse isn’t there? Well you will certainly feel like royalty when you treat your skin to a bit of this.

Let’s be completely honest here, moisturising your body after a shower is an absolute chore. Wouldn’t you agree? It feels so time consuming, not at all luxurious and as a result you feel like a sticky mess for at least the next 20 minutes.

Thankfully this mousse formula changes the game and your routine will never feel like a chore again. The *body mousse instantly soaks into your skin without leaving any tackiness.

And after this fast absorbing treatment has done it’s magic (no need for any flower, gleam and glow songs) your skin is left feeling beautifully soft and hydrated. The raspberry and tea fragrance is also the perfect scent for an added feminine feel that’s not too overpowering.

Nivea Black and White Invisible Deodorant Spray

Odd choice right? Surely you can’t feel pampered with a simple spray deodorant. I thought exactly the same when I asked mum what products she would love to try out.

And then it occurred to me that for such a simple everyday product, you really don’t feel too confident if you think your deodorant has started to fail you by the end of the day. And I know you’ve experienced this at least once in your life.

It’s so true, we use this product everyday and hope it does what it says on the tin, but if it doesn’t.. your day has taken a bit of an annoying turn. Do you feel your most confident self? Could you still happily turn up to the lantern festival after work without feeling judged?

Heck no!

Nivea Black and White Deodorant Spray

And the other truly annoying issue with deodorant is that dreaded spray patch that completely ruins your outfit. Another experience we really don’t want to relive. Am I right?

Thankfully the *Nivea Black and White Invisible Spray will act as your new best friend.. a bit like a helpful chameleon sidekick of sorts (if you catch my drift).

Lasting protection (with the claim of 48 hours but who’s going to test that out?) and no stains? It’s ideal to help you feel your most confident self. How all mums should feel.

    Being a florist sounds amazing though, her facebook page looks lovely. I love that you got her to pick the products out, deodorant wouldn’t be one I had in mind either.
