Chocolates, roses and all things romantic; ’tis the season for love and what better way to feel it than to indulge in beauty products with a romantic twist? Whether you’re looking to spoil that special someone or treating yourself to something sweet we’ve got you covered. —Vicki Duong
chocolate. Who doesn’t love the idea of guilt-free chocolate? With Shu Uemura Blow Dry Beautifier Thermo BB Serum ($42) you can indulge your sweet tooth while nourishing your tresses. A collaboration collection with renowned Parisian chocolatier La Maison du Chocolat, this multitasking hair crème reduces blow-dry time, tames frizz and helps lock in styling.
gold. What’s more luxe than 23-karat gold? Not much if you’re talking about lip products. Tatcha Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm ($36) is a deeply intensive moisturizing lip balm with real crushed 23K gold flakes to keep your smackers extra kissable, while the camellia oil leaves them glowy never oily.
crème brûlée. We all know that dessert is the best part of any meal, so why not incorporate that into your body care routine as well? Bas’d Bodycare has you smelling your sweetest with its Indulgent Crème Brûlée Body Wash ($16). Made with organic and plant base ingredients such as aloe vera and green tea, you can feel good about leaving room for dessert.
roses. Take time to stop and smell the roses and promote a naturally glowy complexion with Korres 15% Vitamin C Brighten Serum ($99). Its unique formula features two phases that, when mixed together, create a skin-care miracle concoction. The top layer is wild rose oil with vitamin C to help promote brighter skin, while the bottom layer helps minimize the appearance of skin discolouration.
pillow talk. Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic ($50) iconic blush duo now features one of the brand's signature shades, Pillow Talk. Formerly only available as a lipstick and lip liner, the blush duo features a rosy hue paired with a pop of champagne shimmer can be swirled to give you a natural looking flush—you'll definitely look like you woke up like that.
