The Valentine’s Day tradition of depending on a significant other for a gift is dead and gone in our eyes. Spread the self-love around and treat yourself with any of these gorgeous beauty buys – all way better than a card, TBH. ?


Clarins Skin Illusion Blush,??20

2017_brand_eventing_limited_edition_pack_open_blush_pink

What I love about this new limited-edition release blush from Clinique is that you can literally buff-and-go. No mess, no fuss and (even better) no need for a blusher brush. It has a sheen when applied that makes you look dewy?and naturally?flushed. These blushes come in three shades and suit every skin tone.

Diptyque x Antoinette Poisson Eau Rose Eau de Toilette (Limited Edition), from €70

This limited edition was created especially for V-Day.?Dyptique partnered with Antoinette Poisson, a creator and restorer of Domino paper who drew inspiration from the Rosa Mundi and designed a floral motif for various rose themed creations of the house. A light, delicate scent of rose; this is a multi-purpose scent and a drop can even be used as an alternative to fabric softener.

L?Occitane?Solidarity Balm, €22

French brand L?Occitane is well known for its Shea Butter products, produced by women from Burkina Faso and offering potent, skin-nourishing comfort for multiple uses. Starting 2017 with purpose, the new, violet-scented Solidarity Balm is a little tin of bliss for lips, hands, cuticles and parched skin, €5, where 100 per cent of profits will go to support women’s leadership in developing countries. L?Occitane’s always on-point packaging sees each tin decorated with bright patterns, evocative of the wax-print fabrics worn by Burkinabe? women.
