Mother's Day rocks

By Jo Finzi pictureLooking for a gift idea for Mother’s Day on the 13th? These pretty rocks look the part, and are actually made of soap - with a unique blend of whole herb extracts, vitamins and minerals.

The Soap Gems mimic the look and feel of Earth’s most precious stones and are made from a mild, extra long lasting, vegetable glycerin base, to preserve your skin’s oil barrier.

There are 15 varieties, all with a unique fragrance. As many as 180 steps are necessary to recreate nature’s beautiful patterns, then each soap is hand-hewn to perfection. pictureSoap Gems are hypoallergenic so they’re suitable for sensitive skins and they contain organic extracts of aloe vera, calendula, lavender and jojoba oil. They are available from Elche natural beauty retreat near Jumaira Plaza in Dubai for Dhs95. Call 04 3494942 or 3495952 for more details.

Oh, and to all you panicked UK expats out there - relax. This is the American version of mum’s special day. Doesn’t stop you treating her, though - right?
