MFK – Gentle Fluidity Eau de Parfum

 The moment we had a sniff of this new scent from Maison Francis Kurkdjian, we knew we had to have it. It’s spicy and woody – in other words, the kind of perfume that makes everyone you hug say, ‘you smell soo good’.

SISLEY - Black Rose Skincare Set

If you ask us, getting just one product from Sisley’s iconic Black Rose collection would be an utter delight, but to receive two? Boasting both the Cream Mask and Skin Infusion Cream in one set, it’s such a stellar skincare treat, we challenge you not to keep it for yourself.

SKIN GYM – Rose Quartz Facial Roller

When it comes to a true beauty fanatic, it might be time to think outside the box. So how about Skin Gym’s facial roller? Made with rose quartz (a crystal that supposedly helps attract love, btw), this bestselling tool helps to reduce puffiness and inflammation by simply rolling it in an upwards motion over your face. The gift of good skin with the added bonus of possible romance – we say, what’s not to love?

LA MER – The Lifting and Firming Mask

For those nights when your skin feels in need of some proper attention, La Mer’s Lifting and Firming mask will provide some much-needed TLC. Packed with heavy-duty hydrators, plus the brand’s iconic Miracle Broth, the mask-like treatment lifts, firms and hydrates your skin, all while you sleep.

YSL - Limited-edition Touche Éclat 

We dare you not to fall in love with YSL’s new heart-adorned Touche Éclat. Boasting the same iconic formula as the original, the concealer-and-highlighting hybrid brightens skin (primarily the undereye area) in one single swipe. It was one of the first of its kind, and years later, we’re still smitten with it.

GUCCI – A Song for the Rose Eau de Parfum

With a whole lotta love in the air, what better way to treat yourself than with a fabulous new perfume? More than just a pretty bottle, this foolproof pick for any floral-fragrance fan is infused with aromas of rose and musk. Fresh and gloriously feminine, we reckon it will win over even the least romantic among you.
