Valentine’s treasures for body and soul - with scents and feelings…

Love your skin

For a Valentine’s love token, choose a body treat gift to remind your loved one of your feelings every day.

Crème de la crème

If you really want to indulge your favourite lady, go out and get her the greatest gift from the depths of the ocean. La Prairie - with extracts of exotic caviar, is the ultimate in indulgence. The Skin Caviar Luxe Body Cream delivers magical moisture – and it smells divine. Get it from top beauty outlets throughout the region… picture

Fruity fancies

If you’re feeling fresh and fruity, here’s some bath and body beauties from the Body Shop, for a really tasty love token.

According to legend, if you halve a strawberry and share it, the two of you will fall in love.

So choose a body or bath treat from the Body Shop’s sweet and seductive strawberry range – and see what happens. There’s a Strawberry Scrub for a smoothie start, a juicy Shower Gel and Soap to get in a lather about, and a Strawberry Body Lotion or Body Butter for a fruity finish… picture

For another flavour of the month, feel fruity with the Peach Body Butter. It’s deep conditioning and moisturising recipe gives your skin the softness of stroking a peach.

French made

Whether you prefer flowery scents or nutty butters, there’s something for you at L’Occitane en Provence.

There’s a super smoothing selection of shea butter beauty blends and mega moisturisers, with extracts of almonds, vanilla and honey.

Try this Delicious Paste body treatment combining crushed almonds whipped with sugar crystals, for a great way to exfoliate. Follow with the Milk Concentrate – a concoction of creamy almonds and silicium that nourishes, smoothes and tones… picture

Say it with roses with the Rose Velvet Body Cream – a light and velvety cream that melts on the skin, making it satin smooth… picture

Choose from the new Rose & Reine collection, blended from roses with a hint of blackberry. The Rose & Reine Enchanted Oil makes the skin glimmer and sheen and leaves you with a soft rosy scent… picture
