De-stress | Skyn Iceland Hydro-Cool Firming Face and Eye Gels

In just 10 minutes Mom can transform her mood and the delicate skin on her face.  The eye gels address under eye darkness and help plump tired skin, while the face gels go straight to work at tackling fine lines on the forehead and laugh lines. (You know, the ones she got from crinkling her forehead every time you did that thing that drives her crazy.) Encourage her to lay back on a freshly warmed Hastens pillow and enjoy the me time.

After this brutal winter, Mom’s skin can use a little love. Korres’s limited edition Body Butter Trio offers great value, and is perfect for the mom that is in multiple places at once. She can leave one at home, one in her purse, and stash one in her office.  As an added bonus, these heavy duty creams tackle dry elbows and knees without the addition of parabens and phthalates. They are especially good for use right after her bath with that wonderful candle from Le Feu De L’eau.
