Want to avoid the cliched box of chocolates and overpriced bunch of flowers this Mother’s Day? Well, look no further. Our new favourite skincare brand AA Skincare have an alternative that’s sure to secure your place as favourite child (competitive, us?).

For only £21.50, AA’s best selling hydrating and toning set, complete with face cleansing gel, toner and moisturiser can hardly be called ‘splashing out’. We have to admit, their freakishly low price tags compared with other natural skincare brands on the market had us feeling sceptical. But two weeks after religiously using the set every morning and night and we’re sold.

In terms of outer appearance, the dainty set comes carefully wrapped up in tissue paper – something that suggests high-end skincare rather than online bargain.

And then there’s the smell. Each product has the light, fragrant scent of rose and frankincense, ensuring not just a face lift but also a lift in mood after each application.

But the set’s real selling point is the lightweight feel of each product. Our skin feels able to breathe, and the moisturiser leaves no nasty, sticky residue after it is applied, meaning that make up sits nicely on top. If your skin is looking tired, the toner includes antioxidant pomegranate and anti-inflammatory honeysuckle which complement one another by giving the skin a boost and reducing puffiness.

The vegan friendly skincare line climbed even higher in our rankings when we discovered that none of their products are tested on animals.

Their no nonsense approach to ingredients, which are all natural, paraben free and promise to offer simple yet effective skincare for all ages and skin types, guarantees that even the most sensitive of skin is catered for.

A cruelty free, natural and affordable skincare range – there has to be a catch, right? Apparently not. AA insist that they differ from their competitors by investing in the highest quality of products rather than expensive marketing campaigns and gimmicks, meaning that they can afford to sell premium products at affordable prices.

So what are you waiting for? Their gift sets are the perfect mother’s day prezzie – and hey, you’ll even have money left over for the clichéd chocs and flowers after all!
