The requisite products for a spa day, date night or both.
Written By Evelyn Crowley
February 14 falls on a Saturday this year, which means you can devote the entire day to VIOLET GREY’s two favorite pastimes: preening and primping. Staying home? Seize the opportunity to catch up on some restorative beauty treatments. Having a romantic dinner à deux? Take some extra prep time to indulge yourself. In either case, these are the products you’ll need to make Valentine’s the ultimate “me” day.
In skin care as in romance, sometimes it’s best to just wipe the slate clean and start fresh. Using circular movements, scrub La Prairie Cellular Mineral Body Exfoliator into damp skin to gently slough off dead skin cells to achieve a baby-soft smoothness.
No at-home spa night is complete without a hair mask. Comb Rene Furterer Karité Intense Nourishing Mask thoroughly through dry and brittle locks. Let the rich, buttery cream penetrate strands for just two to five minutes before rinsing off to reveal thicker, shinier hair.
Add instant volume to your roots with Y.S. Park 150 Teasing Comb. A hairstylist favorite, the three rows of teeth offer superior grip and control to execute subtle teasing and back-combing, whether you’re sweeping your mane up into a chignon or adding a little oomph at the crown.
Launch a charm offensive with lush, look-at-me lashes courtesy of Tom Ford Extreme Mascara in Ravenous. A few swipes of the formula — a combination of black carbon and unique lash-filling powders — create dramatic volume and won’t smudge or cake.
When it comes to planning a romantic evening, the devil is in the details — like matching your underpinnings to your lipstick shade. Fortunately, The Crimson Coquette, an exclusive collaboration between the lingerie label Fleur de Mal and VIOLET GREY, does the work for you.
