Skincare, makeup and beauty products for Valentine’s Day
By Carla Snuggs
Looking for a great gift for Valentine’s Day? If your Valentine is a skincare or makeup junkie, give the gift of beauty! Posh Beauty Blog has rounded up beauty gift ideas for your Valentine that, unlike chocolates, are calorie-free and guilt-free. From lavish body oils to and luxe anti-aging creams to spa-quality beauty products, there is a little something for everyone.
Jamberry Nail Wraps
Available in over 300 fun designs per season, these gorgeous nail wraps can be applied at home with an easy heat and pressure technique. They last up to 2 weeks and 4 weeks on toes when applied properly. For Valentine’s Day, Posh Beauty Blog Recommends Love Bug, Heart Attack and Love Spell Trio ($15/sheet, Jamberrynails.com).
Panasonic EH-SA31 Facial Ionic Steamer
There is nothing better than having a refreshed face first thing in the morning. The new Panasonic EH-SA31 Facial Ionic Steamer will keep your loved one glowing for 365 days straight, so it’s the gift that keeps on giving. The compact sized steamer uses ultra-fine, nano-sized particle steam to quickly replenish dry skin while simultaneously revitalizing your complexion. I love the Pansonic EH-SA31 Facial Ionic Steamer because it can help you achieve results similar to a spa-style facial at-home, and if you get professional facials regularly like I do, it is an investment that will help you save quite a bit of cash. Cleanse, then steam your face for about 6 minutes. Apply your favorite gentle exfoliator to remove dull, dry skin. Rinse, then apply an anti-aging serum, followed by a luxe hydrating mask. Rinse, and then apply your favorite facial moisturizer ($179.99, Panasonic.com)
FHI Heat’s Stylus™
FHI Heat’s Stylus™ is the FIRST “Thermal Styling Brush” that can Smooth, Touch-Up, De-Frizz, Style, Re-Style, Control or createVolume, Lift, Waves, Curls, Bumps, Flips and Bends. This “Thermal Styling Brush” uses a High Performance Ceramic Heater that produces quick, even heating across the brush for long-lasting styling results. Stylus™ glides through to smooth, tame and control. For short, textured hair, it tames the hair in the back easily. On long hair, the ridged back helps guide the hair for tangle-free styling. You can use it on real hair extensions and it even works wonders on men’s hair ($139.99, Fhiheat.com).
The Organic Pharmacy Beauty Drops
Give the gift of beauty from the inside out. The Organic Pharmacy Beauty Drops are a blend of antioxidant-rich ingredients like ginseng and bilberry to energize skin and boost hydration.
