Give the gift of self-care this Valentine's.
Isn't February such a delightful month? With Chinese New Year just around the corner, and Valentine's Day quickly following suit, we're overwhelmed with all the gift options you can ever imagine for a loved one or for yourself! Here, I’ve shortlisted six products for the season of love.
A gifted scent carries a personal and intimate message. So why not a box of it? BYREDO has just launched its limited edition 6 piece-set that suits different moods and occasions. This is a good option for a girlfriend and for yourself!
For dates, you should go for Rose of No Man's Land, a scent that complements your presence without overpowering it. For Chinese New Year, it's best that you choose a perfume like Blanche that is balanced and does not clash with the delicious smell of food.

With the extensive CNY holiday, we have to make sure we look our best at all time. I’m always looking to discover new and effective skincare products. I found Clarins Double Serum that is formulated with 21 active plant extracts. This also doubles up as an anti-ageing treatment while restoring radiance and skin elasticity- no wonder it's one of the best-selling product!
Available online and Clarins Counters
I don't know about you, but I love discovering SS19’s makeup collections. They’re always fun, feminine and with endless ways to wear them. If bold colours aren't your thing, I recommend taking vibrant pastel shades instead. My favourite is the Coral Lip Balm from the Dior Lip Glow to The Max range because it creates a natural pink tint on my lips. It's also nourishing and comes with pearlescent pigment that intensifies a natural glow. The aesthetically pleasing candy cane lip balm also comes in raspberry and holographic pink.
Available at all Dior counters
Sure, roses are the symbol of love, but they wither over time. The best alternative is to give them in the form of a scented candle! This Valentine’s, Diptyque has launched its latest Roses collection, it includes two limited-edition candles that feature the essence of the Damask rose and Centifolia rose.

Who said Valentine's Day is only for couples? Get your best girlfriends and celebrate love! You’ll only want to be giving them THE best! The newly launched Sunday Riley A+ High-Dose Retinoid Serum is enriched with retinoid-like botanical extracts to fight the appearance of dark spots and discolourations. It also aids in reducing the side effects of flaking and redness from using high strength retinol and retinoid products. This is definitely a perfect gift for yourself and your best friend.
Available online and all Sephora Outlets
Exploring the idea of self-expression in the collection, the colour changes depending on the colour of the reflection. Ideal for a perfect date, the limited edition cream glitter eye shadow with six different shades gives a subtle shimmer upon application. I would suggest using your fingers for this and layer it multiple times for an intensified look. It's gentle to the skin; with ten botanical oils and extracts, it also helps to hydrate the eyelids with a smooth finish.
