Love Yourself: Acts of Self Care in Time for Valentine’s Day

With a growing appreciation of self-love and self-care, this Valentine’s Day provides the perfect moment to treat yourself. Our top discoveries promote a holistic sense of wellbeing and relaxation, and are easily shared with friends for a special “Galentine’s Day” celebration (or of course, be kept all to yourself for an indulgent night in.)

 

 

And as with all of our Brands to Trust, the love goes further than you may think… Our brands are leaders in fair pay, environmental protections, and sustainable innovation too.

So enjoy yourself this Valentine’s Day, however you decide to spend it. For those of you sharing it with a loved one, make sure to have a read of our Exquisitely Positive Finds for Valentine’s Day guide.

 

Bathe in Bliss

The power of a good pamper session goes beyond simple skincare; it’s an opportunity to relax the mind, body and soul. Invest in me-time with Alexandra Soveral’s Volcano Ash Face Mask, a detoxifying mask that will leave skin feeling plump and nourished, and finish your routine with Argentum Apothecary’s powerful La Potion Infinie moisturising cream for a real treat.

 

 

Linger in Lingerie

Nothing feels better than a new set of lingerie. This Valentine’s Day, treat yourself to fine French lace from Freolic London, an award-winning luxury atelier specialising in environmentally-friendly materials sourced from France, England and Italy. Sometimes it’s nice to wear something for your eyes only.

 

 

Sensual Scents

It’s been clinically-proven that our memories and scents are interconnected. Transport yourself back to your last exotic getaway with a Lola’s Apothecary Breath of Clarity candle, a clean-burning candle with an invigorating blend of eucalyptus, sweet marjoram, and rosemary. Or if you’re more of a city dweller, Guerlain’s Champs-Élysées Eau de Toilette will have you daydreaming throughout the day about the beautiful winding streets of Paris.

 

 

Nestle at Night

Sometimes the most cherished moments come from a night of true relaxation, tucked under plush blankets watching a classic black-and-white film. Artha’s hand-woven Khullu Throw is made from the finest yak wool, a treat to snuggle up with. And no movie night is complete without chocolate – Rococo’s Cocoa Dusted Scorched Almonds provide a pleasurable option to dip in and out of.

 

 

Celebrate Yourself

Champagne always feels special, and even more so when it’s an impulsive treat. Enjoy a glass or two with Moet et Chandon Impérial Brut NV Champagne 375ml bottle, the perfect size for splitting with a friend, or even savouring in the bath… Sometimes a naughty treat is all that’s needed for a feeling of self-appreciation and joy.
