With the most romantic day of the year quickly approaching, now is the time to start finding the perfect gift for your skincare-loving partner (or yourself!). Instead of running to the grocery store last minute for a box of chocolates and a bouquet of roses, get them something that they really want: clean skincare products. Unlike single-use Valentine’s Day gifts, high-quality moisturizers and serums keep giving, helping your loved one maintain healthy and glowing skin for weeks or even months.
Because there can be a lot of pressure when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts, we’ve found 17 skincare products that will surely bring a smile to anyone’s face.
Erase The Cake, Face Puff in Raspberry — $4.99 USD
This makeup-removing puff makes a great addition to any Valentine’s Day present. With just a little water, the Face Puff can be used to remove makeup without any hassle. Because the Face Puff is heat-sealed and waterproof, bacteria and microbes cannot enter it, so it won’t lead to breakouts. It comes in several colours, but Raspberry is perfect for February 14th.
SiO Beauty, Facelift Pack — $65 USD
Before you book an appointment for injectables or a facelift, try this set of reusable face wrinkle patches for your eyes, smile lines, forehead, and neck. The Facelift Pack uses medical-grade silicone, which gently compresses the skin and deeply hydrates to deliver a smoother, more firm, lifted look in only a few hours. When used consistently, it can prevent deeper wrinkles from developing.

Are you bothered by those 11 lines in between your brows? Don’t worry; we’ve found a clean product that can help!
