The Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File with Diamond Crystals
Nothing kills a romantic mood like dry, calloused feet. Give the gift of great skin from head to toe and radiate with confidence this Valentine's Day with Amope. I can't believe the amount of money I've saved by doing DIY manicures and pedicures with Amope systems. I love the Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File with Diamond Crystals: If you have hard skin and calluses this will help reudce them as well as extend the life of your pedicure. The Amope Pedi Pefect uses a Micralumina™ extra coarse roller head with finely ground diamond crystals to exfoliate with a gentle and safe rotating action. For DIY manicures, try the Amopé Electronic Nail Care System. Get one for your self, or for your best girlfriend. They are both available at mass retailers and drugstores for less than $50, making it the perfect affordable Valentine's Day gift.

Chason Shower Filter
For the silkiest skin and softer more manageable hair, stop showering in chlorine!" says Nedalee Thomas, CEO of ChansonWater.com. "A Valentine's beauty gift a man or woman will enjoy, and maybe even together! Easy to install, then tie on a red bow. Lead the way with rose petals, champagne, and candles." For the gift of pure pleasure, a shower has never been so luxurious...like a walk in a rain forest near a waterfall. Pampers your skin and protects your health with pure, clean, energized water.
The Chanson Shower Filter is a unique skincare gift. Without it, a ten minute shower results in absorption of the same amount of chlorine as if you were to drink eight 8 oz. glasses of the same water! Benefits include: Healthier, younger-looking skin, Softer, more manageable hair, Relief from dry skin and scalp, Less fading on color-treated hair, Improved lather, use less soap and shampoo.
Along the vein of products that can help you get Valentines Day-ready, consider Panoxyl. Beauty junkies know clear skin is essential for Valentine's Day, but the struggle is real when looking for a product that works fast and leaves your skin blemish-free. PanOxyl is a line of products packed with benzoyl peroxide to help treat and prevent acne breakouts. Dermatologist approved, the foaming wash, spot treatment and cleansing bar can be used on your face and body and are conveniently sold on shelves at your local major pharmaceutical retailer. The spot treatment is also clutch-friendly and acts as the perfect on-the-go accessory to tackle those stubborn, last-minute breakouts.
Panasonic Micro-Foaming Cleansing Device
The Micro-Foaming Cleansing Device is a 3 step Japanese-style cleansing tool that removes makeup, and provides both gentle & deep pore cleaning. It was featured on Allure.com's "5 Beauty Picks We're Obsessed With This Week". I love that you can use this system daily or weekly, as it supports a 3-step cleansing routine that features a heated tip for makeup removal and creates lush micro-foam. The Panasonic Micro-Foaming Cleansing Device features a sonic mechanism that creates a lush micro-foam and a heated tip for makeup removal that warms up to 118°F. This is a great splure and well worth the investment if you're serious about getting great skin.
