Give The Gift of Beauty
Valentine’s Day Treats, by Rose Panton
Flowers and chocolates are so cliché, and let’s face it – they won’t last over a week. Be original this Valentine’s Day and give your loved one the gift that keeps on giving; beauty products. Here we look at some of our favourite products and treatments to treat yourself or a loved one to this February 14th.
Bio Sculpture Treatment
For clients who are struggling for Valentine’s gift ideas, or are simply looking to treat themselves for the special day, why not recommend a Bio Sculpture nail treatment. The appointment doesn’t have to be limited to a Gel Manicure and can be suitable for both male and female clients. With Bio Sculpture’s range of spa treatments to pamper hands and feet, a quick manicure with an application of Cuticle Oil can be a wonderful treat and provides a great introduction to the benefits of Bio Sculpture treatments.

Salon System Beauty Boost Hydration + Lip Mask
Make lips kissably soft in time for Valentine’s Day with the Beauty Boost Hydration + Lip Mask from Salon System. These are easily applied during in-salon express treatments like eyebrow tidies or lash application. They also work well as an at home pick-me-up treatment. The mask is made from Natural Plant Cellulose to adhere closely to the contours of the face, just like a second skin, to allow for optimum absorption of the active ingredients.

CND™ Vinylux Valentine’s Gift Sets
Experience love at first sight with the CND™ Vinylux Valentine’s Gift Sets. This nifty four piece set would make the perfect gift for loved ones this Valentine’s Day. Whether it complements a sparkling ring or just some sparkling wine, colours this gorgeous were meant to be seen and nothing says fabulous like a high shine mani or pedi!
The kits include four CND™ essentials including RidgeFX™ to prime and perfect the nail surface, two fabulous romance-ready Vinylux shades (choose from Wildfire and Skin Tease or Cake Pop and Pink Bikini) and Vinylux Weekly Top Coat to lock colour in place for up to seven days.
Lycon Anti Bump Foaming Gel
For Valentine’s Day, many clients may treat themselves to a fresh wax and gorgeous new lingerie, but there is nothing gorgeous about ingrown hair, waxing rashes and blemishes.
The Lycon Anti Bump Foaming Gel is a must have for every clients bathroom. Suitable for face and body, it effectively minimises the appearance of ingrown hairs, razor bumps and general blemishes. This new generation cleansing gel foams into a soft, fresh and deliciously scented lather, excellent as a shower wash, a facial cleanser and perfect as a shaving lotion!
LVL Enhance Treatment
Valentine’s Day is the prime time to flirtatiously flutter your eyelashes at your loved one, but don’t think you have to layer on mascara and pile on the false eyelashes for this.
Get luscious and voluminous eyelashes with minimal effort this V-Day with the LVL Enhance treatment from Nouveau Lashes.
Unlike a traditional lash perm, LVL Enhance straightens your natural lashes at the root, creating the appearance of longer, thicker eyelashes. Plus the added lash tint creates a mascara-style effect, so your lashes are perfect from the moment you roll out of bed.
The treatment can last 6-8 weeks, so even when your client wakes up barefaced next to their loved one, they can be confident their eyelashes look perfect.
ELEMIS Frangipani Monoi Oil
Treat yourself or a loved one to a relaxing bath or a sensual massage using the ELEMIS Frangipani Monoi Oil. This truly exotic hair, nail and body oil nourishes, hydrates and conditions whilst transporting you to a faraway exotic island.
Pour a little bit into your bath for a truly relaxing and sensuous experience, or use as a massage oil to deeply moisturise and soothe the skin
Containing the rich fragrance of frangipani, also known as ‘the flower of the gods’, the monoi oil exists as a solid at room temperature, but the minute it touches the body it becomes a fine oil that has such an affinity with skin that it sinks in straight away, leaving you beautifully moisturised & smelling great.
Clarins Joli Rouge Brilliant Lipstick
Perfect your pout this Valentine’s Day with two new lipstick shades from the Clarin’s Joli Rouge Brilliant Collection; ‘Pink Cranberry’ and ‘Tender Nude’.
Both lipsticks consist of a rich and creamy formula that leaves the lips with intense colour and a delicate satin finish. Enriched with organic marsh samphire extract and mango oil, Joli Rouge intensely moisturises the lips for 6 hours and provides suppleness and comfort.
The delicious scent of red berries will mean your client’s won’t want to take it off.
