Ascending Butterfly's Annual Mother's Month Buying Guide Giveaway, brought to you by:

Yes it is still Mother's Month at Ascending Butterfly, with all the craziness of BlogWorld 2011 finally coming to an end, I'm catching up on emails, entries and of course blog posts. I wanted to get this post up before BlogWorld, but I didn't get a chance, so I want to start by thanking our dear friends at Borghese for their patience.

I've been using Borghese products (my personal longtime fave is the Fango Mud Mask) well before my Blogging Days, so when I recommend them, I do so because they are a brand I buy anyway!

This week I've been in 'go go go' mode with very little rest (felt much like the Energizer Bunny), with a back to back schedule that left little time for adequate hydration and my skin really paid for it! While makeup has its place, the foundation for great skin is taking good care of it. And even if you have oily or combination skin, it still requires proper hydration to maintain it's health! This weekend aside from trying to catch up on much needed rest, I am planning on some 'at home spa day' treatments to thank my skin for putting up with the abuses I put it through this week!

Spa Bella Mother's Day Gift Set

Pictured Above: Spa Bella Mother's Day Gift Set

Included in the Set:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Gel Delicato Gentle Makeup Remover - a luxurious and lightweight gel that never robs skin of moisture as it lifts away makeup. (I love not having to tug at my skin to get makeup off, especially now as we are approaching summer. This time of year I switch to waterproof everything, requiring a very solid remover, I love having a remover that gets it all off, but doesn't dry or strip my skin in the process!)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Fango Active Mud for Face and Body  - Stimulate and firm the skin while gently detoxifying. (This is my favorite Mud Mask of all time! It never over dries my skin, and it makes my face look just like my skin does after a pricey spa facial treatment!)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Sali Esfoliante Salt Scrub - Purifies your skin. (I love salt scrubs, your skin needs exfoliation year round, many people cut back on them in the summer which is actually a mistake, the dead skin cells need to be sloughed off your skin or they clog your pores, so don't cut back on your exfoliation routine just because the weather is getting warm!)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - CuraForte Moisture Intensifier - Allows moisturizing products to perform to the max and provides lavish hydration. (Use much like you would a makeup primer, especially if you are more partial to mineral/powder foundations)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Cura di Vita Protettivo Protective Moisturizer SPF 15 - I love this and use it daily, it offers SPF protection, hydration and doesn't make my skin oily.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Fluido Protettivo Advanced Spa Lift for Eyes - With my jam packed schedule, I never skip this step! I'm also prone to dark circles from my dads side of the family so I really try to make a concerted effort to use products that help with under eye circles.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Tono Body Creme - Give skin the moisture it needs for a healthy glow. If you are going to spend the day at the beach you can put on your sunblock during the day, and then use this at night after your shower, your skin will thank you for it in the morning!

All packed in a perfect-for-summer Straw Tote lined with signature “B” pattern. A $209.00 value, priced at $52.50.

My Take

This is a great gift not just for Mother's Day but a perfect gift for summer month birthdays too! Attending a pool party at a friends house? Dinner party during the summer months, bring this as a hostess gift. It's unique, thoughtful and will be very much appreciated! And this set couldn't possibly be more timely since this is the start of Memorial Day Weekend.
