01. Lakme Blush and Glow Pomegranate Sheet Mask
A sheet mask is the easiest way to pamper your skin while you are busy doing other things.

At home facials may feel like a chore, but giving yourself an hour and taking the time with a facial kit can be an extremely relaxing and indulging experience. The brightening facial kit from Pond’s is a 6-step process formulated with mumti-vitamins to give your complexion a radiant glow.
03. Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque
Sometimes, all you need is a potent facial mask to give your skin everything that it’s lacking. The Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque from Dermalogica is formulated with concentrated vitamins A, C and E, and linoleic acid to restore tired and damaged skin from the first use itself. The calming botanicals present in this formula is also perfect for irritated winter skin that is in need of a soothing mask.
04. Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub with Kiwi Seeds and Cool Aloe
Don’t ignore other parts of your body while pampering your skin on V-day! This softening body polish from Dove will help rejuvenate dull skin, slough off dead skin cells, help fade pigmentation patches and give your body a good cleanse without being too harsh on it. Formulated with kiwi extracts and aloe, this body scrub feels as heavenly as it smells, making it perfect for the pre-date shower before seeing BAE.
05. Love Beauty & Planet Murumuru Butter and Rose Aroma Delicious Glow Body Lotion
Date night glam is incomplete without covering every inch of your body with a nourishing body lotion! And what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to smell like an actual boutique of roses yourself. This creamy body lotion form Love Beauty & Planet is the perfect example of a feel good product, both inside and out. The vegan, ethical and no-baddies formula is absolutely worthy of your love!
