The liquid formula allows you to add your chosen amount of colour for a healthy, fuller looking complexion that won't brush off. The blush is long-lasting and blends in easily, adding a little shimmer to the cheeks that is sure to make them blush too.

Dededence. Meaning: Luxurious and indulgent. Need we say more? With floral note of Jasmine and Bulgarian Rose mixed with intense base of Liquid Amber, this perfume by Marc Jacobs is sure to get the sense going.

Feel like a the Queen you are with this Thickening Spray by TIGI. Spray onto your roots before you blow dry your hair for Valentine's worthy volume! The heat activated spray is strong holding and has long lasting effects for a boost of body and confidence.

Galentine's movie night must haves

Sarah Chapman 3D Moisture Infusion

Nothing screams self love like a luxury face mask and this Galentine's were treating ourselves to the Sarah Champman 3D Moisture Infusion. The award winning formula, favoured by celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, penetrates into the skin for maximum results including intense hydration and plumping. The best mask pick for your Galentine's glow!

System Professional Hydrate Mask

Why stop with the face when it comes to masking? Hydrate your hair too with the System Professional Hydrate Mask. Perfect for all hair types, the mask intensely nourishes and moisturises hair for healthier, fuller looking locks. Work the mask into clean, towel dried hair, leave for 5 minutes and then rinse out.

CND Vinylux Field Fox Nail Varnish

No girls night in is complete without an at home manicure or pedicure. We love this luxury varnish from CND for professional looking nails without having to leave the house. The expertly formulated formula not only looks as glossy as a salon set of gels, but also nourishes the nails with Vitamin E, Keratin and Jojoba Oil to keep the nails healthy and strong, promoting growth.

Margaret Dabbs London Foot Hygiene Cream

Complete your pedicure with this Foot Hygiene Cream by Margaret Dabbs. Designed to soothe and moisturise sore, dry feet, the Emu Oil and Tea Tree enriched cream nourishes the feet leaving them smooth and pain-free. The Tea Tree in the cream also works as an anti-fungal and antibacterial, helping keep the feet healthy and prevent nail damage and discolouration.
