FEBRUARY : THE (SELF) LOVE MONTH
So it is soon Valentine 's day aka the day when people are expected to show their affection to another person in different ways. It seems there is always two sides: Some love it, others find it too commercial.
Of course this year's current situation makes this celebration slightly different as most of us are stuck at home, with little distraction, not many places where to escape - but the greatest one: our powerful mind & soul.
So we have decided to create the ultimate (self) love guide to help you celebrate this day, imagining different scenarios, inspired by the one & only Carrie Bradshaw, and for each time, one product essential:
1. The Party Queen
"When life gets this confusing, there is only one thing to do: attend a fabulous party". Of course there is no such party at the moment, but this is no reason for not looking good.

2. The (First Time Ever Seen) Date #ThePowerOfLuck
"Here's to the guys who love us, the losers who lost us, and the lucky bastards that get to meet us."
The Gorgeous Balm Tonifying Care from BAUBO: An emulsion that naturally boosts our body and our self-confidence. It can be applied without moderation on your boobs, belly and booty for a refreshing and tonifying effect.
3. The Lover
"I'm looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't live without each other love."
Holi (sex) Intimate Oil from AGENT NATEUR: Formulated to hydrate, warm, and lift libido. Ambrosial fruit and floral oils support sensuality by elevating blood-oxygen saturation and radiating an aphrodisiacal aroma.
4. The Girls Night In

Green Line and Green Flash nail polish from MANUCURIST: (re) Discover the new shades available on Get Me Glow for the perfect green & clean manicure at home.
5. The Self Love & Self Care #MeMyselfAndI
"The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself"
One of the lesson this past year has shown us is that you should invest more time in your wellbeing than you should be spending in (fast) fashion, as taking care of yourself is the best long term ROI you could ever make! The list of wellness "to-do" is endless, and everyone has their own opinion and preferences. But an easy way to start is by taking actions and responsibility through little things, the ones that makes us feel good, look good and do good in & out: The choice we make with the food we eat every day as well as the products we put on our skin, body and hair. It is by making these small yet important decisions that we end up creating daily self care routines.
Enzymatic Apricot Face Peel from Irene Forte: A deep yet very gentle cleansing & exfoliating scrub mask to help clarify and refine the skin. Suitable for all skin types, especially dull or tired skin.
"Don't forget to fall in love with yourself first."
