ask them at the counter. as the ones they have are for differing types of skin. your mum is very lucky smile

They're all good! It's about which one suits your mum's skintype - do you have any idea what that is?

At 48, odds are her skin is getting a little drier.

It was probably the Extra Firming Day cream, in the peach-coloured packaging. I use it (46) and am very happy with it.

The multi active day cream is a pretty good all-rounder.

energising morning cream is lovely.

I use hydraquence lotion with spf15.

Its comes in a blue pump action bottle. Im only 30 so younger skin BUT I tend to get dry and tight skin so need moisturiser..I find it lovely to apply and not greasy. Only need a little dot of it and it last ages.

Good price as well at around £30 (50 ml)

It would probably be extra-firming or super restorative. Super restorative is specifically formulated for post-menopausal skin and it is really lovely, quite pricey however!

Extra firming the recommend from about 30yrs + and they do an all skin types version or a very dry skin option. They do have full ranges as well (so day cream, night cream, serum, eye cream, eye mask etc) and sometimes will do an offer where you buy 1 or 2 skincare products and get a free gift pack so check both department stores and any local stockists to get the best deal as they have different deals at different times for independent salons and dept stores.
