So love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, and this year there’s a wealth of beautiful beauty treats to hope for from your other half, or to have a little splurge on if you are single (or have a man who is “not into” Valentine’s like moi!). I’ve put together an edit of some gorgeous buys, many of which are inspired by roses, and all of which are far, far more desirable than a bunch of!
Did I need another candle in my life? No. But did I need this candle in my life? I did. This limited edition floral candle is a tribute to a woman’s handbag with designer Olympia Le Tan on board to create the cute and quirky packaging. Powdery viola sits alongside with rose, iris, raspberry leaves and traces of leather. This won’t be around for much longer so hurry! There’s two sizes of candle, solid fragrance and the Eau Rose has had a Valentines makeover too.
Of course when you think of beauty gifting, you have to think of Jo Malone London, and what could be more perfect than Red Roses. The fragrance is whisper soft, a blend of seven roses alongside a hint of lemon and crushed violet leaves, and is definitely a modern classic. If you want to layer, the bath oil is such a gorgeous treat, and adds a beautiful new base note to my Blackberry and Bay, or to Pomegranate Noir. Isn’t the new illustration for the collection chic?
Prismologie Body Balm / £55
Combining colour therapy science with aromatic ingredients, Prismologie products are perfectly packaged luxe meets holistic. This beautiful creamy powder softly scents and moisturises skin, as well as adding a gorgeous subtle sheen, and comes with a cute pink puff to apply.
Two brand new shades – Kiss Chase in KISSING formula (sheen) and Between The Sheets (matte) both perfect for date night (hence the name!) This duo includes both the tawny berry shade and the vintage pink petal hue. I’ve ordered Between the Sheets and I cannot wait to try it! I’m really into matte at the moment and the colour is right up my street.
Another product with a rose inspired makeover, this is a fragrant and beautifully illustrated edition of the cult classic. With modern damask rose, and citrus cedrat, this will not only leave your skin feel fresh and bright, but smelling pretty gorgeous too!
These super cute and very wearable mini chubby sticks come complete with ombre packaging and a matching ombre makeup bag, for the bargainous cost of £20. This set includes Baby Tint in Budding Blossom, bestselling Chubby Stick in Woppin’ Watermelon and Chubby Stick Intense in Plushest Punch and these are perfect for those who love quick and easy colour on the go.
I hope you all get something super lovely for Valentine’s, and more importantly have a lovely day/evening whatever you decide to do. Let me know if you get any exciting beauty treats too!
