Get the perfect Valentine’s Day gift

Wednesday, 5th February, 2020 4:42pm

Valentine's is just around the corner, and for all of you last minute shoppers, there are some essentials that you need to consider because, let’s face it, an eyeshadow pallette is likely to gain you way more kudos than a bunch of flowers!

I always buy myself something nice for Valentine's as I am all about encouraging self-love. Also, as there is a week to go, I have some top tips for kissable lips. Don’t say I never gave you anything!

Created to fill a gap in the highly educated Irish beauty market, Aliso Beauty is focused on providing quality products packed full of clean, organically certified ingredients that deliver results - and quick. Meticulously formulated using 100 per cent natural ingredients, including organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, organic rosehip extract and organic vitamin E, the Aliso Lip Scrub (€12.95) is 100 per cent vegan and cruelty-free. As with all Aliso products, the lip scrub is completely free of any nasties as well as being paraben-free and packed with some of nature’s hardest working antioxidants.

Whether you’re removing your favourite lip product or simply prepping your lips for cold days, the ground sugar crystals will gently exfoliate your skin renewing the condition of your lips. Finish with a generous layer of Aliso Lip Balm (€12.95) in fresh mint or summer fruits for a treat your lips will thank you for.

Did you know that the delicate skin on your lips doesn’t produce any natural oils? That means that whatever we put on our lips invariably ends up being ingested. That makes choosing a quality, organic lip balm essential.

Aliso Lip Balms deliver deep hydration and natural antibacterial cleansing. As if you needed any more convincing, the balm also contains shea butter, blackberry extract and vitamin E which delivers antioxidant skin healing, calming and restoration.

Huda Beauty's Ayali, the disruptive fragrance brand founded by beauty maven Mona Kattan, is launching its fifth eau de parfum, Déjà Vu White Flower. Created from some of the most luxurious raw materials sourced from all around the world, the warm and sultry scent is an alluring bouquet of white florals. With each spritz, the notes of jasmine, tuberose, patchouli and gardenia come together in a seductive and unique blend.

Déjà Vu White Flower has a generous concentration of 25 per cent oil, which means the intense fragrance is not only powerfully seductive, but long-lasting like your most treasured memories. Available in Brown Thomas at the Huda Beauty Counter.

If you want to be on theme for Valentine's, then the nude pallette by Huda is a great gift to consider for €65. The carefully curated line-up is studded with easy-to-use combinations of flattering mattes and shimmer-drenched accents – from soft berry to dusty copper and rosy pink to golden taupe.

Finally balancing cool and warm tones, the palette offers the best of both worlds! Coupled with the exquisite colour range, the combination of game-changing textures – mattes, iridescent shadows, pearl shades and glitters – will give you everything you need. I get a lot of use out of mine and it is one of my most complimented makeup looks whenever I use it.

Aromatherapy gift items in the Green Angel collection for Valentine's include hand-poured fragranced candles, reed diffusers, herbal eye cushions and heat packs to soothe and refresh. Heavenly scented Green Angel candles and diffusers are perfect for gifting, for a lasting subtle and sophisticated fragrance. The hand poured creamy soy wax candles are infused with delicate blends of organic essential oils in a choice of white linen and lemongrass and lime scents. They give 55 hours of comforting candlelight to snuggle up with love ones!

Elegant Green Angel Diffusers are instantly-uplifting and will safely and naturally deliver distinctive fresh scents in the home or workspace.

And, for natural relaxation, the Green Angel Luxury Herbal Eye Cushion is a hand-made luxurious silky satin cushion filled with flax seed and lavender to produce a comforting aroma.
