April 28, 2020
Hey there clean beauties… Spring is here! A warmly welcomed moment for sure, given that it’s been quite the whirlwind of a couple months for us all! As we hop (or maybe, hesitantly inch our way) into the new month of May (can you believe it?!) we’re excited to shift our focus from the chaos of the current times to the celebration of the ones who have always been there for us, offering a place of safety, comfort, and reassurance. Mother’s Day is around the corner – and now more than ever, celebrating the ones we love is so important. As usual, we’re here to offer you a little help in finding the perfect gift that says, “I love you, mom!” for every momma in your life – from the new mom who needs a little encouragement to the wellness-advocate who could use a little extra time for her own wellness these days (hello! Being a mom locked in at home with little ones is a tough, 24/7 job!).
Let’s dive in, shall we?
Introducing…THE SHOP GOOD MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE
FOR THE NEW MOM
Erbaviva – Mama Relax Oat Bath
With little time to herself, the new mama needs a quick and effortless way to refresh! The Mama Relax Oat Bath is a luxurious oat milk bath for both pre and post-pregnancy, formulated to deeply moisturize and soothe the skin. Perfect for busy mamas juggling feedings, sleep schedules, and the need to feel human again!
Shhhower Cap – Shower Cap
Let’s be honest: new moms don’t have time to be washing and styling their hair fresh everyday (heck, I don’t even do that!). So, let’s help her out with the cutest shower cap you ever did see! Premium nano-tech fabric repels water on a molecular level makes this cap uniquely waterproof and fuss free. That means our new mama can style her hair once and maintain the style for days by keeping it dry even while showering! Talk about a time saver. Pro tip: she can wear this as a turban on the days she doesn’t really want to try — she’ll still feel super cute and put together without using all that energy she’ll need for figuring out this new life!
Tata Harper – Purifying Mask
Reality is, if she’s a new mom, she’s probably not more concerned with her regular skin care routine than she is with her new bundle of joy. To help her offset the one or two nights she forgets to wash her face before drifting off to sleep for a few hours, gift her with the Tata Harper Purifying Mask. It’s the perfect detox treatment for congested skin, purging pores of impurities and minimizing pore size. She can leave it on for 10-20 minutes and then hop into a quick shower to fully rinse. Easy as that!
Available in-shop for phone orders only. Call either shop to add-on to your online order with the assistance of our team!
Moon Juice – Super Hair
If there is ever a time a woman realizes she needs help nourishing her hair and her hormones from the inside-out, its postpartum. Moon Juice’s Superhair does both! With a potent complex of bioavailable and bioactive multi-vitamins, Superhair promotes healthier, thicker, stronger hair. Plus, it includes adaptogens such as organic Ashwagandha & Ginseng which help balance stress hormones and reduce the effects of oxidative stress (which can also contribute to hair loss).
FOR THE EXPECTING MOM
Erbaviva – Stretch Mark Cream
A nutritive, organic essential oil-infused cream for growing tummies. Erbaviva’s Stretch Mark Cream with cocoa butter and sea buckthorn extract actively aids in keeping skin hydrated and elastic. A pregnancy MUST.
Agent Nateur – Holi(Glow) Eye Serum
Let’s talk about puff, baby…let’s talk about bags and dark circles. Okay, that didn’t quite roll off the tongue the way I had hoped — kinda disappointing, just like the reality of a puffy face as you head into the 3rd trimester of pregnancy. Why does no one talk about that?! Agent Nateur’s Holi (Glow) Eye Serum to the rescue! This eye serum is the answer to dry, tired eyes, and dark circles. The perfect remedy in the morning and evening, this cooling gel-like texture leaves the skin hydrated, yet glowing. Ingredients include caffeine to promote the appearance of smooth, hydrated skin and cucumber to nourish, moisturize, and tone dull skin.
Okay, maybe get two — one for yourself and one for the expecting momma in your life. Trust me on this one.
H is for Love – Lip Glacé
A lip balm that offers a subtle tint too? Who wouldn’t love it? The perfect gift for the low maintenance expecting mom who just wants to keep life as simple as possible. Because she has enough to worry about as it is!
Osea – Undaria Body Oil
You can never go wrong with a good body oil. Undaria Seaweed is infused with a blend of luscious seed oils – Acai, Babassu and Passion Fruit – which firm skin and reduce appearance of stretch marks. A guaranteed winner.
FOR THE MOM ON-THE-GO
Moss Mornings – Sleep Peel
She really can’t be bothered to book herself a facial, let alone add one more thing to her schedule. So, offer her something she can use at home that’s easy to add onto her nighttime routine once in a while! All it requires are a few swipes all over the face and a few hours of sleep — she’ll wake up to that post-facial glow feelin’ like a new woman!
Josh Rosebrook – Hydrating Accelerator
Every mom loves a good “Just toss it into your bag and go” product. The Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator is THAT product. Organic vitamin-infused aloe water and fatty acids lower skin surface tension to effectively penetrate the stratum corneum and enhance delivery of hydration, antioxidants, and nutrients into the skin. Talk about a much needed dose of antioxidants! She’ll be reaching for it time and time again.
Ilia – Super Serum Skin Tint
Every mom I have ever known has begged for multi-use products. And ILIA’s Super Serum Skin Tint is the perfect new addition to her routine: A clean, light-coverage, tinted mineral SPF 40 serum that boosts skincare benefits. 3 products wrapped up into one dewy, gorgeous glowing product! A few drops blended right into the skin and she’s out the door.
Rais Case – Kima Bag
Technically, this bag was made to be a skincare or makeup pouch for the on-the-go girl. But honestly, I think it can absolutely double as a day-to-night clutch! Moms on-the-go rarely want to be hauling around massive totes — they’re usually the fanny pack wearing, cross body tossing, backpack, or clutch kinda girls. The Kima bag is the perfect pop of color to make any fit feel fun, even if it is just another pair of leggings (hey, we fully love & support the legging). Ok…I’m already jealous.
FOR THE SKINCARE MAXIMIST MOM
OOOHHH girl. This is the dreamy, whipped, microdermabrasion treatment inspired product we’ve all been waiting for. An at home treatment that any skincare enthusiast will LOVE, this is a dual-action microdermabrasion exfoliator that delivers the benefits of both physical and chemical exfoliation, instantly polishing away roughness, smoothing uneven texture, and revealing a healthy-looking, glowing complexion. It’ll make mom feel like she got her pre-kids skin back… *wink*…
Living Libations – Rose Glow Serum
A wrinkle fighting, rehydrating, gentle serum that evens out skin tone back into beautiful harmony! This feather-light formula offers care to her skin without feeling over done. From morning to night, she’ll feel self-care strong with this one!
Botnia – Flower Powder Mask
The inflammation and redness remedy of our dreams—Botnia does it again! You’ll be bringing peace and relief to her skin with this gorgeous powder mask without a doubt. Pro tip: combine this with the Gentle Hydration Mask to really “wow” her!
Berlin Skin – Carrot Seed Serum
Liquid gold for the skin, the Carrot Seed Serum packs a gentle, yet powerful, punch of antioxidants. Incredibly brightening and combined with oils to transform your skin. We love it for it’s lightning, healing, and protective properties. It brightens, protects, hydrates, and heals. Any skincare guru would surely love this addition to her bathroom counter.
FOR THE WELLNESS ADVOCATE MOM
Activist – Manuka Honey
It’s like the Swiss Army Knife of wellness — antibacterial, powerful immune system support, pain reliever, redness reducer, wound healer. What does it not do? Although its intended to be ingested, it is just as powerful used topically! Mom doesn’t have time to be slowed down by sickness or a canker sore — Manuka can help prevent both and keep mom healthy & happy.
Agent nateur – Holi(Youth)
Pick baby up, put baby down…load stroller in car, lift stroller out of car…chop chop chop veggies for dinner, wash wash wash dishes. The body of a mom is STRONG — she does SO much. But all that doing can cause some serious inflammation and cause her bones and muscles to get sore so quickly! That’s why it’s important to offer her body support the way she knows she needs it most: an adaptogenic fusion of herbs and earth medicines that balance hormones, calms the mind, and minimizes inflammation. Spirulina, marine collagen, and pearl harmonize the brain, while holy basil eases stress and regulates cortisol.That really is some holi work.
goop – Detoxifying Superpowder
It’s no secret that motherhood often leads to a glass of wine or two at night — and rightfully so! She deserves it. But for the mama who is conscious and committed to her overall wellness (that alcohol can really take a toll on the vibrancy of her skin!), she needs something to help her body get back on track and stay on track the next day. Insert the Goop Detoxifying Superpowder. Made with milk thistle extract—crucial for detox—and a nutrient blend (selenium, zinc, magnesium, glycine, and pantothenic acid), along with the powerful antioxidants resveratrol and vitamin C, the formula’s ingredients work synergistically to help neutralize dietary and environmental toxins for healthy, vibrant skin. All this in a daily shot? Yeah, we know — sounds too good to be true, huh? Luckily for mom, it’s not.
Sun Potion – Yin Power
The holy grail of hormone balancing and adaptogenic blends! Besides the fact that nearly the entire Shop Good girl gang is taking Yin Power (or has in the past), this is Sun Potion’s love note to all the powerful mothers, sisters, daughters, teachers and healers in our global community. A blend of organic + wild harvested herbs they crafted to nourish feminine energy and harmonize the whole system, from the inside > out. It offers the potential to support immunity, creative energy, hormonal balance, mental clarity, stress relief, cellular regeneration, radiance, healthy circulation, emotional equilibrium and libido. Talk about a Mother’s Day gift homerun!
FOR ALL THE MOMMAS
“Mom” can mean so many things to all of us uniquely. Maybe it was your older sister who really turned out to be more of a motherly figure for you growing up, or maybe it was a family friend who showered you with love and motherly affection, taking you in as her own, OR maybe you were one of the blessed ones, being able to know and be loved by your own biological mother. No matter who you’re most thankful for this Mother’s Day, we want to say “thank YOU” for choosing us as your source of gifting inspo. There’s no greater honor for our Shop Good team than serving you all through all the seasons!
And to all our mamas out there, we say: thank you for loving a whole world of little ones, teenage ones, and adult ones (yeah, we really do still need you mom!) and making our world a better place.
WE LOVE YOU.
Happy Mother’s Day, beauties.
