With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it seems like a great time to embrace some pampering so you can be your own Valentine no matter your relationship status!
On this #MerchMonday we have a round-up of beautifying and relaxing products for a Valentine’s Day packed with self-care!
There’s nothing like a good bubble bath to kick off a day of self-care. With delightfully rich ingredients like argan oil, coconut oil and aloe vera, your skin is sure to feel magnificent after 30 minutes (or 60 or 90 or 120…) soaking under a blanket of these bubbles. Though Deep Steep makes other fragrances, I feel like Lavender and Chamomile is the classic aromatherapy choice for next-level relaxation.
Want to make your time in the bubble bath especially lovely? Why not bring a copy of your favorite romance novel to read while you soak?! Just proceed with caution, since a drenched paperback is no fun at all.
Some of us aren’t bath people, and that’s okay! Whether you soak in the tub or just need a more luxurious-than-average shower, this purifying peppermint body scrub provides the pampering you deserve!
Peppermint is one of those beautiful ingredients that has a calming aroma but a generally invigorating effect. So as you move on from your pampering Valentine’s Day you can still scrub up whenever you need a little pick-me-up!
Body Butters are one of my all-time favorite ways to pamper myself. It’s not just lotion, y’all! It’s a freaking butter for your body. Sometimes verbiage makes all the difference!
The nice thing about The Body Shop body butters is that they’re always so whippy. Even if you’re just using it to moisturize before a normal day at the office there’s something absolutely decadent about the smoothness that comes from a product like this. On a day that’s all about loving yourself, don’t just use lotion. Use a body butter! You deserve it!
Some people might expect gold jewelry for Valentine’s Day. But why not enjoy some gold on your actual face?!
These eye masks are made to sit on your face and leave the spot under your eyes looking radiant! For some extra pampering on your Valentine’s Day full of rest and relaxation, you could pop these eye masks in the fridge for a cooling and calming effect!
And finally, after you’re scrubbed and buffed and beautified, you can wrap up your Valentine’s Day with a calming at-home manicure.
Essie makes tons of gorgeous colors, but Eternal Optimist is one of my eternal favorites because its blush pink tones are delicate and simple. This color exudes the theme of a Valentine’s palette but with the subtlety that can carry on to everyday life.
No matter your plans this week, I hope you get a chance to be your own Valentine with some self-care and calming rituals!
