Mother’s Day has extra special significance to me this year. Baby B’s little kicks in my belly are the best first Mother’s Day gift I could ever ask for, and I can hardly believe that by this time next year, she’ll be our little sidekick everywhere we go! While we don’t know exactly how our lives will look when we become a family of three, we are trying to mentally and physically prepare as best as we can. Part of that for me is being extra-conscious about practicing self-care and being more cautious about the products I am using. Your skin is your largest organ and now that I have Baby B in my belly, I am making sure to take care of her too.I know my time for self-care will only grow harder to come by once our little lady arrives, so I’m doing my best to embrace opportunities for a little extra relaxation. In honor of Mother’s Day, I invited my mom over for a few hours of pampering, inspired by my new favorite Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Mask that I was excited for her to try.

My mom and I share an appreciation for a healthy, glowing, minimal makeup look. She has taught me since I was a teenager that the natural look we love starts with taking great care of your skin. That’s why I knew she would love this mask as much as I do— it instantly revitalizes and plumps skin in minutes to create a glowy, radiant canvas before starting your makeup – or if you want to go makeup free.  The mask activates upon application to deliver a boost of 10% pure vitamin C for visible brightening and protection against free radicals plus rose otto oil and squalane to hydrate and calm skin. I’ve tried countless face masks over the years, so I’m extremely particular about which ones earn a place in my regular beauty routine. Especially since Biossance products are plant-derived, non-toxic, and safe for my pregnancy, this mask has quickly become one of my new staples. The delicate rose scent is a bonus—it reminds me of two of my favorite places in the world: my grandmother’s gorgeous rose gardens and our house, where the first roses Thomas planted are starting to bloom!
