5 Beauty Gifts for Valentine's Day

Whether you're treating yourself (woo!) or someone else (ahh!), here's my pick of 5 perfectly pampering beauty gifts for Valentine's Day this year.

Sanctuary Brimming Full of Love Gift  £12.50

I quite like Sanctuary as a brand because they offer a bit of accessible luxury at a reasonable price point and this gift set is no exception. They've fully tapped into the Valentine's spirit with the Brimming Full of Love Gift which was created in collaboration with Artist Frederick Wimsett, who is known for his stunning interior murals. At a purse friendly £12.50, the set features a Body Scrub, Body Lotion and Body Wash in the White Lily and Damask Rose formula. There's also a limited edition White Lily and Damask Rose Bath Float for £10 which is rather pretty and very obviously Valentines-centric. Sanctuary is available at Boots and is currently on 3 for 2.

Therapie Love Me Life Kit £42

If you're in need of a truly relaxing and luxurious treat, the Therapie Love Me Life Kit is a perfect option. It's not cheap but the higher price point is well justified - if you've ever tried any products from Therapie you'll understand what I mean. The brand is all about self love and nurturing so this kit is perfect for February 14th. It contains 'deluxe discovery sizes' of Awaken Skin Rehab Scrub, Joie Bath Infusion, Cherish Skin Repair Serum (which by the way is stunning) and the Love Candle presented in a beautiful black box complete with a red ribbon. Therapie is available at Cult Beauty.

Black Chicken Remedies Love Your Body Oil £54

Australian brand Black Chicken Remedies first got my attention a few years ago when I had a facial at Beauty Works West (now Lazeo) using their gorgeous products. I'm so happy that Cult Beauty are stocking Black Chicken now because a few years ago it was near impossible to find their products online. The Love Your Body Oil is a beautiful, uplifting blend of nourishing oils and is refreshingly unisex in scent so men and women can both indulge. With key ingredients such as lavender, patchouli and ylang ylang in a hazelnut, rosehip and coconut oils, it's perfect for slathering on after a hot bath or massaging your significant other. I have a bottle on the go at the moment and my skin is practically drinking it up. Available at Cult Beauty.
This candle/ massage oil hybrid has been on my lust-list for so long now! As a massive fan of Oskia Micro Exfoliating Balm I'm a little ashamed to admit that I haven't tried anything else from the brand - nope, not even the coveted Renaissance Cleansing Gel. The Rose de Mai Massage Candle just sounds so decadent and ritualistic - I love the idea of letting the candle burn and filling the room with a rich rose scent before letting the oil cool slightly and pouring it from the little spout! Warm oil + rose scent? It's a yes from me. You can find the Oskia Rose de Mai Massage Candle at Cult Beauty.

Fresh Barely There Mini Lip Duo £20

Left over from Fresh's Christmas gifting collection, this lip duo makes a neat little Valentine's gift to yourself. The set features a pot of the much loved Sugar Lip Polish and a pot of Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm Advanced Therapy. I haven't tried either of these products but I am a fan of the brand's lip balms and am yet to try a Fresh product I don't like! If you live in London you can pop in to the store otherwise the Barely There Mini Lip Duo is available at Fresh online.
