Hi guys! It’s nearly Valentine’s Day, and Valentine’s day is quite a controversial occasion. Some believe it’s great to embrace the day of love, and celebrate it. Others however believe it is all a lot of commercial cods wallop (rubbish) and every day should be a day to celebrate the one you love and all the feelings that entails. Either way I’m not fussed, I like a lot of pink and red and I like seeing people carrying flowers and watching the world pass by in a romantic hue. I don’t take the day seriously but nevertheless I don’t dislike it either. And if I can use the day as an excuse to pamper myself and love myself a little extra for a day, I don’t mind Valentine’s day coming more than once a year.
I thought I’d quickly bring to your attention a couple of products that I think will be Valentine’s day worthy. I really wanted to go for something quite affordable and something that wouldn’t break the bank. The first option really does fall in to that, this is the Montagne Jeunesse ‘Passion Peel Off’ that is a blend of pomegranate and passion flower infused with raspberry, grape and cranberry. It really does smell gorgeous and I liked how it was a peel off as it comes off really easily and isn’t the messy creamy sort. Don’t mistake me, I adore messy masks too but I’ve currently craving easy options and this definitely is one. This does smell really really good, I had a rose candle burning when I applied mine and painted my nails. Maybe something about the combination of the scents was rather romance inducing because I was left feeling happy and mellow. You can pick it up here from Montagne Jeunesse’s website or places like Superdrug and Asda. And remember this is suitable for vegetarians and MJ look to use natural products as much as possible.
This is the gorgeous Valentine’s Collection for Her from Elemis and I had to include to even though I haven’t yet tried the products. This seems to be the perfect pampering gift to receive on Valentine’s! It contains ‘A 35ml Frangipani Monoi Body Oil and a 50ml Exotic Frangipani Monoi Bath and Shower Cream to pamper and hydrate the skin leaving it super soft and delicately scented with the exotic aroma of frangipani’. And the best bit about this duo is that it is a very friendly £12. For spa quality products! I could do with that, you can pick it up here. I love Elemis shower gels, my current favourite luxury shower gel is Elemis Skin Nourishing Shower Cream which I adore adore adore and love the feel of on my skin. Frangipani sounds really good so I think I need to have a little sniff and most likely purchase. I also adore Elemis Body Oils, I love leaving a few drops in my bath and also massaging into my skin after my bath so I’m guessing I’ll love this one too. I think I’ve just figured out my Valentine’s present to myself. There is also a men’s duo too for those wanting to buy for their other half but I shall just be selfish because if you don’t love yourself, who else will?!
That is it for my pampering product recommendations, I hope it was useful and gave you ideas! Have a great Valentine’s day and keep smiling – Tanzina x
