Valentine’s Day Beauty Guide; relaxing products inspired by Sloth

If you’re too lazy to do anything big this Valentine’s Day, one simple solution is to run a bath for you and your partner - or just for yourself!

Cleopatra was a big fan of the rose, and ensured her banqueting hall was filled with two feet of fragrant roses for Mark Anthony’s first visit from Rome. If you fancy following in the Pharaoh’s footsteps, then I recommend using Ancienne Ambience’s beautifully scented Mini Rosa Bath Salts, £4 from ancienneambiance.com.

Before bathing, set the mood with the huge Red Heart Rose Candle pictured below, £32, also by Ancienne Ambience. The candle is created with the softest rose fragrance, which is reminiscent of roses from ancient Damascus where for centuries the Damask Rose was a symbol of beauty and love. Can’t get much more romantic than that.

Once you’re out of the bath, lather yourself with Arbonne’s luxurious Aromassentials Unwind Massage Oil. I absolutely love this product as it boasts a calming yet refreshing scent thanks to its camomile and ylang ylang ingredients. Its silky texture feels lovely when massaged into your skin, too. I suffer from psoriasis and find this oil particularly soothing for affected areas. Available for £29 from arbonneinternational.co.uk.

Another nice, relaxing product is Petits JouJoux’s aramomatherapy candle which doubles up as massage oil.  The candle, which has a lovely scent, comes in a pretty white ceramic container with a discreet spout. The wax melts into a warm massage oil ready to use on either your own skin or your partner’s – or both!

I was surprised the first time I used this product as I was expecting the oil to be piping hot, but once you extinguish the flame you can pour the warm oil straight onto skin. The oil contains nourishing ingredients such as jojoba oil and shea butter which leave your skin feeling soft and moisturised. Prices start at £14.99 and there are six scents to choose from in total. Available to buy from Nice’n’Naughty and La Coquette.

Valentine’s Day Beauty Guide; green cosmetics inspired by Envy

We’ve all experienced irrational pangs of envy and, as the saying goes, jealousy is an ugly trait. Turn your green-eyed monster into emerald-eyed beauty this Valentine’s Day with Artdeco’s Soft Kajal Liner in Fir Tree, £7.25 from JCmakeup.com.

It looks great when applied along your lower eyeline and the shade is bang on trend; you need only take a look at the dresses which appeared on the Grammy Awards Red Carpet this year to know that the colour green is de rigueur at the moment.
