15 Beauty & Lifestyle Gifts To Spoil Yourself With This Valentine’s Day

15 Beauty & Lifestyle Gifts To Spoil Yourself With This Valentine’s Day

To you, from you.

By Gracie Clough | 23rd January 2019

If you have been looking for a reason to treat yourself, Valentine’s Day might just be your perfect excuse. Although Hugh Grant told us that when we look close enough we’ll find that love really is all around, in February it is in particularly high abundance (P.S. Love Actually fans, raise your hands.) As well as showing our special people and furry friends extra affection this time of year, the month of love is an important reminder that we should be showing ourselves kindness and love every day too. After all, the most important relationship you can have is with yourself. So, go on and show yourself a little bit of lovin’ by gifting yourself something special this Valentine’s Day.

Clove + Hallow Lip Crème in Flaming Coral

Nothing screams Valentine’s Day like a crisp, red lip. Red is without a doubt the most powerful colour, and has the ability to drastically change our mood. You can always rely on a red lip to give you a boost of confidence or to make you feel romantic! The Clove + Hallow Lip Crème is a comfortable and hydrating bold lipstick that is guaranteed to turn heads.

Mayde Tea

Actor Arthur Wing Pinero once said, ‘while there is tea, there is hope’, and we couldn’t agree more!

Mayde Tea offers all of your favourite traditional teas as well as specialty teas to aid with digestion, energy levels and well-being.

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask

Although the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask only launched in March last year, it has already reached cult-skincare status. After trialling the product for ourselves, we can definitely understand why.

The Beauty Chef Collagen Inner Beauty Boost

Collagen is one of the biggest beauty buzzwords currently, and for a good reason. As we age, our collagen levels deplete, which results in a loss of skin firmness and fine lines. Incorporating good-for-your-gut collagen supplements into your daily routine can assist in plumping and strengthening your skin. The Beauty Chef Collagen Inner Beauty Boost also contains pre and probiotics, certified organic acai, maqui berry, blueberry, zinc and vitamin C – just to name a few.

An Organised Life Zodiac Notebook

In a world where we are consumed by digital, it can be therapeutic to put pen to paper. Using a notebook is a great way to keep track of all your thoughts and ideas, plus if it looks chic, the chances are you are more likely to use it. An Organised Life teamed up with LA-based Astrologer, Natalie Benson, to create zodiac notebooks which feature the sign’s symbol and characteristics on the cover. Inside on the first page, the notebooks feature extended blurbs about your star sign.

Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator Moisturising Facial Mist

We all lead busy lives, so multi-tasking products like the Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator are much-appreciated. This isn’t your typical facial mist that might ‘feel nice’ but doesn’t seem to show us any results. Instead, this mist is loaded with vitamins and counts as your toner and light-moisturiser in one to leave you glowing and hydrated.

Slip Silk Eye Mask

Are you someone who can’t drift off to sleep unless the room is completely pitch black? Maybe it’s time to maximise your beauty sleep with some silk eye masks! Silk won’t absorb all of your skincare products and has been proven to create 43% less friction on the skin than cotton. FYI, cotton can drastically strip your skin from all of its moisture.
