The day of lurrrve is near. Whether you’ve just started dating, been married for a while, or single (happily raising my hand, thank you very much) there’s something for you in this list. Get ready for Valentine’s Day…
Menthe Verte Candle ($60, Diptyque Paris)
Set the scene with romance in the air. There’s no better candle in my mind than those by Diptyque. With fifty scents in their collection, I’m sure you’ll find the right one for you.
Bare Beauties Lip Treatment Set by Fresh ($24, Sephora.com)
When I’m on a date, I don’t like to wear a high pigmented lipstick that just might end up all over my face and my date’s! You want to have kissable lips that don’t look too intimidating to mess up, right ladies? These tinted lip balms from Fresh are the perfect solution. They add a hint of color that looks like youe lips are naturally flawless and they keep dry lips at bay, which can be a problem during winter months.
SheaMoisture Lavender & Wild Orchid Hand & Body Scrub ($8.99, Walgreens.com)
I love a great scrub in the shower before a big date (talk about scrubbing up well, right?) I swear by this hand and body scrub by SheaMoisture. It’s luxurious in consistency but easy on the purse strings—you can find this gem at the drugstore. Oh, trust me when I say it smells heavenly, plus the scent of lavender is a great calming agent for any pre-first date jitters.
Laura Mercier Crème de Pistachio Honey Bath ($45, NeimanMarcus.com)
This luxurious honey-scented bubble bath is perfect for before or after the date, wink, wink, nudge, nudge. It has the enticing aroma of a French patisserie but it’s not overpowering and the best part is your skin will feel so soft afterwards.
