The Best Valentine’s Day K-Beauty Gifts to Buy Yourself (Or Your Fabulous Friends)
Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating the love in our lives, right? But you don’t have to be partnered up to do so. Love can be found in so many other places than just a romantic relationship. The relationship we have with ourselves and our beautiful besties is worth celebrating too, especially when we’re always asking them for their dating expertise. If you’re new to treating yourself or your best friends this Valentine’s Day, and it’s giving you more stress than shopping for your other half, here are some of our favourite presents you’re all guaranteed to fall head over heels for. Our love language = skincare and beauty gifts.
FYI, if you spend over £35 you can get free UK shipping. You know, just in case you needed another reason to fill up your basket with gifts, other than you really do deserve them.

Instead of gifting a very expected, very boring bottle of wine this Valentine’s Day (zzz), try exfoliating pads dipped in resveratrol extracted from red wine.

With a uniquely shaped wand that evenly distributes the product, it refuses to clump in your lashes whether you like to apply one layer for a natural look or double up for a more striking finish. *Flutters eyelashes*.
Say bye-bye to bags with HARUHARU WONDER Black Rice Bakuchiol Eye Cream.
