Mark your calendars! Here in the States, May 13 is Mother’s Day (click here to find out when it falls in your country). Want to get Mom something special this year? Looking for gift ideas? Check back over the next few days for a different Mother’s Day gorgeous gift idea (a new special something with which to spoil Mom).
For Motherâ€™s Day a couple years ago I got my mom a Clarisonic Mia, and she loves it! Nothing says “Thanks for sharing your body with me for nine months, Mom!” like a gentle, yet industrial strength, facial cleansing.
Okay, well, you know what I mean…
And this is good timing, too, as Clarisonic recently released a new kit (priced at $169) called the Acne Clarifying Collection, and it’s pretty darn snazzy.
It comes with a dual-speed Clarisonic Mia2, a bottle of Clarisonic Acne Daily Clarifying Cleanser (which contains a solution of 2 percent salicylic acid) and an Acne Cleansing Brush Head gentle enough for blemish-prone skin.
Oh, and since the Mia2 brush in this kit is white, it’ll look great with all kinds of bathroom dÃ©cor (a small but important detail).
I have the original Mia with the regular brush, and I actually prefer this newer version. Mia2 has a timer, which comes in really handy because it stops me from over-scrubbing. I also really like the plush new Acne Cleaning Brush Head, which feels much softer on my skin than the brush that came with my O.G. Mia.
I still remember Mom’s eyes lighting up when she tore off the wrapping and saw her Clarisonic. Every year she says, “Don’t get me anything,” and I’m sure she means it, but if your mom struggles with her skin (hey, don’t we all at one time or another?), keep the Clarisonic Mia2 Sonic Skin Cleansing Acne Clarifying Collection in mind.
Available now at Sephora stores and also online.

MAC Carine Roitfeld Collection: Fall 2012!
Not quite Mother’s Day related, but just a quick heads up about a new collection MAC has lined up for fall 2012. MAC teamed up with Carine Roitfeld, former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, fashion model and writer, to create the MAC Carine Roitfeld Collection, a 20-piece release that plants the focus firmly on eyes and brows for a look that reflects Carine’s signature smoky eyes, bold brows and nude lips.
The collection also features a Good Luck Star stencil, which can be seen in the images of Carine photographed by Mario Sorrenti. Sorrenti, a legendary photographer and filmmaker, is best known for his work in Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, and this campaign marks the first he and MAC have worked together.
I lurves me my smokey eyes, and this sounds a little like one of my favorite MAC collections of all time, Fall 2007’s Smoke Signals.
Counting down the days!
