DH and I are trying to buy MIL some Christmas presents. She's in Moscow and can't get access to certain brands of cosmetics/skincare, so we wanted to get her some nice ones, and DH knows she's been looking to find a really good face cream for ages and not finding one (obviously it needs to be good for very cold weather which drys out your skin).
Questions: what do you think is really good? Especially if you know about the cold. And, is it rude to buy her some? I'm a bit worried it might look like us saying: 'here, your skin is wrinkly, you need this!' But we would also get her other bits and make up a pack of cosmetics/bath stuff/whatever, so it might be ok?
Btw - I was looking at L'Occitane and at Kiehl's - I know L'Occ is nice but just have a vague memory of someone on here recommending the other. Yes, or no?
