Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away and if you have a special evening, or even a special weekend, planned with your significant other, we’ve got some tips to help you to get yourself looking and feeling you best for the big night.

Using Decleor 1000 Grains Body Exfoliator, and concentrating on areas such as your knees and elbows, will ensure that your whole body has a velvety-smooth finish and will efficiently absorb any moisturising products you apply.

As well as the positive effects on your skin, you’ll also be left with a rich, lingering fragrance which will enchant anyone who gets close enough to smell it.
Preparing your body is all well and good, but your mind needs to be aligned with the rest of you, and relaxation is an important factor. Elemis Quiet Mind Temple Balm contains a powerful blend of essential oils to help promote harmony, tranquillity and relaxation, which will get you in the mood for an intimate evening with your loved one.
