The ROYAL Treatment
JAFRA ROYAL Boost Purifying Gel Cleanser: This Cleanser gently exfoliates and refreshes your skin, removing dirt, excess oil and dull skin as it helps protect against free radical damage with energizing antioxidants. The citrus refreshes your skin to help visibly even skin tone, while beets help to fight signs of aging, and powerful matcha energizes and protects your skin against free radicals and future signs of aging. This is one of my personal favorite products. It is great for daily use and perfect for preparing your skin for the rest of your daily routine!
Royal Jelly Berry Powerful Lip Care: This is one of my favorite “small” products that doesn’t get all the attention it deserves. This lip care is specially formulated to repair and moisturize and is flavored with a hint of sweet berries! It takes advantage of the amazing power of Royal Jelly, is color-free, and glides on buttery-smooth.
Silky Skincare for the Queen Bee
JAFRA ROYAL Revitalize Longevity Crème: This ultra-nourishing intensive moisturizer firms and rejuvenates with youth-boosting skincare technology. [Pro tip: Skin enters its most revitalizing phase when we sleep – apply Longevity Crème at night for a skin-nourishing boost!]
JAFRA Microdermabrasion Cream: JAFRA’s gentle microdermabrasion cream contains silica, crushed bamboo powder and jojoba butter beads to boost renewing power and help promote surface skin cell renewal. As skin resurfaces over time, nurturing sunflower oil and shea butter soothe and condition skin to reveal a more radiant you! (or Mom!)
JAFRA Sun Broad Spectrum SPF 50+: Although many JAFRA products already have built in SPF (because JAFRA knows just how important skin care and protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays is), it is still important to be sure that Mom can have some extra protection in her arsenal when she needs it! This Broad-Spectrum SPF helps defend against UV ray damage and signs of aging while it conditions skin and provides a burst of hydration.
JAFRA Spa Foot Balm: This balm features a rich blend of emollients that helps to soften even the roughest skin to revitalize tired feet, calves, and ankles.
Mother Daughter Bonding Ideas
Mani-Pedi: Start your Mani Pedi with JAFRA’s Conditioning Lacquer Remover to remove any existing polish and condition dry nails. Next, choose your polish from JAFRA’s lineup of Beyond Brilliant Gel Nail Lacquers. There is a hue for everyone; with bold shades ranging from White Out to Extreme Teal, and a Limited-Edition line of Natural Nudes ranging from Pink Latte to Espresso! [Pro tip: Be sure to layer in an ultra-rich moisturizing body cream to your Mani Pedi routine. Royal Olive Rich Hand Cream is a great choice for hands and feet!]
Mud Masks: Treat your mom (and you!) to a skin care evening with JAFRA Spa Mud Masks derived from Dead Sea minerals. This Mud Mask gently exfoliates and nourishes skin with energizing natural ingredients to deliver a visibly brighter complexion. Before applying your JAFRA Spa Mud Mask, I recommend removing makeup – if you do not have a makeup remover at home, try the JAFRA Beauty Makeup Remover. Once you have a ‘blank canvas’ paint on the Mud Mask (I like to use a clean makeup brush, or a silicone mask spatula – you can also use your fingers, but I personally find the brush to be calming) in a generous, even layer, avoiding the eyes. Leave on for 15-20 minutes then rinse thoroughly.
Fragrances to Delight and Dazzle
Eau d'Arômes Sunshine: A splash of citrus. A dash of flowers. A spark of pure joy. Does your Mom remind you of the infamous My Girl lyrics? I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day. Then this is the fragrance for her. The bright Italian lemon and vibrant sunflower mingle with base notes of driftwood to create a scent that is full of contentment, warmth, and effervescence – just like your mom. [Awww]
JAFRA We EDP: This fearlessly feminine fragrance is a luminous blend of velvety peach, golden amber, and creamy jasmine. If your mom wants to feel empowered and emboldened by her fragrance of choice, then JAFRA We is for her; she will be uplifted with the burst of citrus and the modern, feminine florals.
Perfumer’s Edition Flores EDP: This special edition of Flores fragrance, created by master perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux is inspired by a woman who “lights up a room the moment she walks in” and showcases the rare Brassavola orchid and sweet blood orange that brings a larger-than-life vibrance and lasting aroma. The front of the bottle is graced with the signature of its creator; much like Rodrigo's handwriting, the fragrance inside is exuberant and joyful.
Vesen Delice: Perfect for the sweet-loving Mom or the gourmand, this lighthearted and delicious fragrance will delight the senses with juicy strawberry and creamy mascarpone. These sweet notes are enhanced with a warm base of patchouli.
Pops of Color
JAFRA Beauty Liquid Eyeshadow: These high-impact, buildable colors provide lustrous shimmer, glide on smoothly, and blend flawlessly. They can be worn alone for a sheer wash of color or layered for a sparkling finishing touch. The seven gorgeous shades that are available range from a champagne shimmer to a deep sparkling sapphire. The possibilities of these shades are endless and meant to inspire self-expression.
Luxury Lipstick: JAFRA ROYAL Luxury Lipstick delivers radiant color and nourishing skin care for a combo that just can’t be beaten! Enriched with Royal Jelly RJx, these lipsticks will help lips look younger and feel softer. You can choose from fourteen vibrant shades to give Mom: ranging from Lavish Lilac to Coral Chic.
Unique Ideas to Make Your Gift Standout
You Bloom: JAFRA’s newest fragrance, You Bloom is inspired by the journey of a flower from bud to bloom and beyond. The eco-friendly packaging on this botanical fragrance can be repurposed into small starter pots for flowers! Check out the article I wrote earlier this month for more details about this amazing new perfume. This unique fragrance can be made into a truly special gift; simply add a small bag of potting soil, a package of seeds of your choice, and place it all in a gift bag. [I think you just became the family favorite.]

Fab-You-lous Fun Finishes
Nail Art Tools: The perfect add-on for a Mani Pedi bonding gift, or for a mom who already has a lot of JAFRA polish but just wants to get more creative! This set includes a dual-ended dotting tool for applying drops of polish, angled brush for painting shapes and lines, detail brush for intricate designs, and fan brush for fine lines and feathered strokes.
Revitalizing Sonic Cleanser: This is a great add-on for a makeup maven looking for a more spa-like feel in her makeup removal routine. The soft silicone bristles will thoroughly yet gently lift makeup, dirt and oil leaving skin fresh and radiant. Pair with JAFRA Beauty Makeup Remover for a great gift finish!
With these amazing unique present ideas to pamper and indulge from JAFRA, there really is no wrong choice. I encourage you to think of this quote from Maya Angelou as you weigh your options: “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” This Mother’s Day, give your mom the ROYAL treatment and make sure she feels like a Queen Bee.
