Personalised Mini Moet (Available in selected Selfridges stores) / Selfridges ‘I Heart You’ Beauty Box
We show affection for the people we love every day, of course, but I like to use Valentine’s Day as an excuse to be a bit extra with it. Gone are the days when Valentine’s Day was just for couples. To me, it is an excuse to spoil everyone you love. Your partner, your mum, your best friend, even yourself.
This Valentine’s Selfridges are the pioneers of self love and ‘Galentines’. Their exclusive I Heart You & I Heart Me beauty boxes are packed with cosmetic goodies with a combined value of £130 but only cost £35. They are the perfect treat for any beauty lover.
If you want to do something really special this year Selfridges have loads and loads of pamper treatments that are perfect for Valentines. They treated Yanin and I to the most wonderful ‘Mate Night’ on Monday.
To start our day we popped into the newly refurbished Beauty Workshop for a Signature Cowshed Manicure. This little area is so quiet you wouldn’t think you were in the middle of one of the countries busiest department stores. The Signature treatment is a relaxing full manicure using Cowshed products finished off with your choice of colour by Cheeky Cosmetics.
24 Karat Gold FaceGym Facial
After our manicure we headed to FaceGym for a Golden Glow Workout. This is a limited edition treatment starting with a facial massage, followed by their electrical muscle stimulation device, and finished with a Mimi Luzon 24 karat gold mask.
I will definitely be going back for another one of these. My skin was immediately brighter and smoother but what impressed me the most was how flawlessly my makeup applied the morning after.
Makeovers at Yves Saint Laurent Beauty
After our facials we had our makeup done at the YSL counter. We also had a sneak preview of YSL’s beautiful new perfume which has just launched today, the Black Opium Floral Shock fragrance.
Treatments and Blow Dries at Daniel Galvin Salon
We then had Kerastase Fusio Dose Treatments, I chose strength and shine for my heavily coloured hair. After our treatments we had our hair blow dried & styled.
Fragrance Consultation with Bella Bellissima
Our last stop before dinner was a fragrance consultation with Bella, the founder of Bella Bellissima fragrances. This was a completely unique experience, one I will remember for a long time. It was such a pleasure hearing the back story to all of the different scents. After lots of testing and sniffing I found that my favourite scent is Majestic Cedar. I have never gone for a wood based scent before because I simply assumed they wouldn’t be my taste but as soon as I smelt this I knew I had to have it. My dad is a landscaper and the scent reminds me so much of him.
Dinner at Aubaine
The last Selfridges treat of the day was dinner at Aubaine, Selfridges French Bistro. I was so impressed with the Risotto d’Orzo & Fourme d’Ambert, it was delicious and (for a change!) the perfect portion size.
At the end of our wonderful Selfridges pamper day we headed to The London Edition courtesy of Kiehl’s to finish off our Galentines with face masks and midnight recovery.
It truly was the perfect end to a perfect day. How are you going to spend your Valentine’s this year?
