It’s 2022 and while we appreciate all gifts no matter how big or small, it’s time to move away from chocolates and teddy bears on Valentine’s Day. Whether you love the occasion or absolutely despise it, there is never a bad time to gift someone, or yourself, some brand new beauty items.
Who said you need a significant other to celebrate Valentine’s Day? You could purchase the below for your galentine (girlfriend Valentine’s in case you were confused) or add it to your own ever-growing wishlist.
Maison Francis Kurkdijian Baccarat Rouge 540 EDP ($368)
Starting off strong, and extremely expensive, Maison Francis Kurkdijian’s classic and timeless Baccarat Rouge 540 perfume. Yes, it’ll set you back a pretty penny but there truly is nothing like it, and whoever you gift it to will certainly love you till the end of time. The romantic scent opens with notes of jasmine and saffron and eventually softens into a woodier blend of amber accord and cedar.
Dyson Airwrap ($799)
Sick of bad hair days? Then you need to get your hands on the Dyson Airwrap. Ever since I purchased one I’ve thrown out all other hair tools because this beauty does it all. Feel like a blowout? Dyson has you covered. Want long-lasting curls? Don’t even sweat it. Nothing on the market comes close to the Airwrap, so whether you purchase it for yourself or someone special, it’s sure to be a hit.
NARS Liquid Blush ($43)
Ever since Madison Beer mentioned in a video that she uses the NARS Liquid Blush in the shade Orgasm, the item has been flying off shelves. If you can get your hands on it then you’ll see that it results in a stunning, natural flush. Available in three shades, the makeup product will work for a wide variety of skin tones.
Aesop Resurrection Duet ($133)
There really is nothing bougier than walking into someone’s bathroom and seeing an Aesop product sitting on their sink. This gift pack features two of the brand’s bestsellers: The Aesop’s Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash and Hand Balm, both in 500ml sizes. The beloved citrus and wood scent is housed in the iconic minimalistic packaging making it a perfect gift for a loved one.
Shhh Silk Face Mask ($35)
In the age of COVID, there is nothing that says “I love you” more than a face mask lined with silk. We’ve all been there. We wear a mask for days on end and suddenly pesky zits start appearing on the lower half of our face. The Shhh Silk Face Mask is made using 100% Mulberry silk, making it soft and breathable. Which means, no more maskne for whoever is on the receiving end of this luxury item.
The Beauty Fridge ($219.95)
It may seem extra but who said that’s a bad thing? The adorable Beauty Fridge is bringing luxury to your significant other’s fingertips and is the special touch to their routine that they didn’t know they needed. Featuring a deluxe 10-litre storage space, the mini-refrigerator keeps low-temp beauty products nice and cool.
Huda Beauty Juicy Kit (Limited Edition) ($46)
Valentine’s Day just isn’t complete without a bold, red lipstick look. The Huda Beauty Juicy Kit contains one Liquid Matte Lipstick in the shade Lover plus, a mini bottle of perfume. So not only will the receiver look good, but they’ll smell delicious too.
L’Occitane Lucky 8 Hand Cream Collection ($39)
Valued at $49, the L’Occitane Lucky 8 Hand Cream Collection contains the brand’s best-selling hand creams in mini sizes. The non-greasy formula is made with organic shea butter which smoothes and moisturises the skin. Once you use a L’Occitane hand cream, you can never go back.
