Sure, flowers and chocolates are nice, but to really get yourself in the mood this Valentine’s Day I think some kick-ass beauty products are in order. So forget about dropping hints to your man and better yet, grab any one of these V-day approved gifts for yourself! Read on, girlfriend.
Relax & Renew
What better way to wind down this Valentine’s Day than with a warm, relaxing bath? Shea Terra Organics has you covered with a delicious, calorie-free bath time treat with their Shea Butter & Malwai Dark Chocolate 2-in-1 Body Scrub. The shea butter works to hydrate the skin while the Malawi sugar sloughs off all your dead skin. BONUS: It smells just like a brownie! YUM.
Whether it’s Valentine’s Day or really any day of the year, we all want to smell good. This February 14th, pick up a romantic fragrance that’ll turn every head towards you. My first pick? YSL Mon Paris. Featuring notes of pear, orange blossom, raspberry, and peony it’s the absolutely perfect playful and flirty fragrance. Prefer something a little more sensual? Try Donna by Valentino which boasts notes of vanilla, patchouli, and bergamot for when you’re in the mood to amp up your sexy.
BONUS: Purchase Mon Paris at Sephora by 2/14 and get 3x the Beauty Insider points!
Want a romantic scent for your home too? No worries. Voluspa, a luxurious fragrance company has a vast array of candles (in various styles), room sprays, and diffusers for you to choose from. My top picks? Prosecco Rose and Panjore Lychee.
Sexy Red Lips
Red lips are sexy. There’s no denying that. Finding the perfect one? That’s no easy feat. Luckily for us, Jane Iredale created a universal apple red perfectly named “Gwen”, in their best-selling PureMoist Lipstick formula. Skin care meets makeup with this nourishing lipstick as high pigment comes together with Moringa Oil, avocado oil, and vitamins A & C to give you the softest, yet sexiest lips possible.
All Bronze, Everywhere
Be a bronzed goddess this Valentine’s Day with Ethique. The first and only zero waste beauty brand now offers the world’s first self-tanning bar, aptly named “Bombshell”. It bronzes while gradually tanning, perfect for when you need a last-minute glow. BONUS: Each bar is equivalent to over two bottles of liquid tanner!
To use: First exfoliate (try their Mochaccino Body Polish) then follow up with the self-tanning bar. Color develops from 4 hours, is complete at 24 hours, and will last for up to 10 days if skin is kept hydrated.
