We know you haven’t forgotten it’s this Sunday, March 26th. Beauty products at least guarantee she’ll spend time devoted to herself, and these failsafe choices mean she’ll love them all:

Clarins Super Restorative Mask

A face mask is the ultimate?pampering product. She’ll use?Clarins Super Restorative mask?(?40.80) just once and never go back. It smells and feels gorgeous; skin feels soft and aptly moisturised and once applied, it works its magic in under ten minutes.

Tom Ford Orchid Soleil?Eau de Parfum

With notes of black orchid, pink peppercorn, vanilla, chestnut cream and tuberose (among others), this stunning Tom Ford fragrance (from €70) with its rose-hued packaging will chase those winter blues away.
