prince charming shower gel Review, Ingredients: LUSH for Valentine's Day Spring 2015 Bath & Body CollectionReview, Ingredients: LUSH 2014 Holiday/Christmas Collection – Santa’s Lip Scrub, Snow Angel Bath Melt, Dashing Santa Bath Bomb, Holly Golightly Bubble Bar, Baked Alaska Soap

Valentine’s Day only comes but once a year, and for this single twenty-something, it never hurts to treat yourself to something a little nice. (Those sugary sweet conversation hearts can only satisfy a girl so much, and to be honest I can do without the cavities.) Thank goodness for the folks at Lush, as their latest Valentine’s collection delivers a romantic punch of pink and red without the unwanted sugar high.

Instead of a heaping box of chocolates, beauty gifts always impress. And these are easy on your budget (they’re all under $20)  and will satisfy any cosmetics-loving cutie. Plus, with super-cute and almost edible designs, there’s no way even the most cynical of Valentine’s Day haters could refuse these charming goodies.

I actually got to try out this collection last year, since I am one serious Lush fangirl. (Trust me, you don’t want to know how many bath bombs I’ve got lying around.) However, one thing I love about the LUSH brand is that they always outdo themselves when it comes to holiday collections.

For example, the Prince Charming Shower Gel ($9.95-$29.95) has become somewhat of a showertime favorite of mine, with its irresistible cocktail of cheery citruses and delicious vanilla oils. Plus, it never hurts that the gel itself is just the most popping shade of pink, which always boosts my mood after a sour day.

If you prefer a relaxing bath over a shower, treat yourself to the Floating Flower Bath Bomb ($6.95) which brings together sweet smelling jasmine for a true tub treat. Plus, watching the bomb unfold isa  visual feast, as a candy colored swirls give your bath water a psychedelic treatment.

The Kiss lip scrub Review, Ingredients: LUSH for Valentine's Day Spring 2015 Bath & Body Collection

Want your pucker to be Valentine’s ready? Why not try the The Kiss Lip Scrub, ($9.95, lushusa.com) which softens up coarse and dry lips with a buffing caster sugar scrub. Like most Lush lip scrubs, I was an instant fan of this one. With added heart sprinkles, I think this one wins the award.

heart love locket bath bomb Review, Ingredients: LUSH for Valentine's Day Spring 2015 Bath & Body Collection

Back to everything bath, the Love Locket Bath Bomb ($11.95) really impressed me last year, as it’s creative design and heavenly smell made my bathtime an instant zen retreat.

Watching this bomb unfold is amazing too, as it’s initial pink explosion fizzles into a pink-red water filled with tiny agar hearts. A perfect ending to your Valentine’s date night, this sizzling steamer turns up the heat fast.

And if you’re like me and appreciate any quirky little innovation Lush throws your way, make way for the Heart Throb Bubbleroon, ($8.95) which helps your bod get festive with skin softening shea butter and an intoxicating floral scent. I love crumbling this bad boy in the tub when I need to be extra fancy, as the added glitter makes me feel extra special when I use it.

Finally, comes the Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar ($7.95) which is probably my favorite part of the collection, as it’s cheerful fantastical shape makes me giddier beyond belief. Its whimsical appeal makes me kind of want to treasure it for a special occasion.

Makeup Review, Swatches: Laura Mercier Mist And Eye Cheek Palette Spring 2015 Collection Review, Swatches: 4 Best Tips On How To Wear Red Lips For The Holidays! Laura Mercier Ruby Lip Transformer Trio – Crème Smooth Colour, Pencil, Glacé Lipsticks

Are you feeling stressed this with all the snow and gray matter here in NYC? Well, I have a suggestion that will calm your senses and have you dreaming of spring. Laura Mercier has introduced the very Zen Watercolor Mist Eye & Cheek Palette to soothe the soul and prettify the face. The packaging is just so beautiful! It looks as if you left it out in the rain and water beads are running down it. Don’t hide this palette in your purse, ladies. Show it off!

Makeup Review, Swatches: Laura Mercier Mist And Eye Cheek Palette Spring 2015 Collection

Dress your eyes with soft paints in lavender, moss, and blue-sky hues. Shades with whimsical names such as Cloud, Storm, and Wind have us thinking tropical thoughts. This palette also comes with two cheek colors. Sunset, a light peach to uplift the senses and Earth, a medium toned blush to gently contour and brighten.

To finish off your look, Laura Mercier is offering Paint Wash Liquid  Lip Colour in Nude Rose. I love this product. There are a ton of liquid lip products on the market and Laura has nailed it. I like the fact that you can get a precise application with or without lip liner. The Nude Rose shade is a perfect pinky taupe that works from the boardroom to play dates to evenings on the town. It is a soft, velvety texture that looks and feels like nothing else. I was having wine the other night, and this product didn’t leave any marks on the glass!

You must check out Laura Mercier’s new offerings. They’re chic, elegant, and demure. These products are winners all around!

Review, Ingredients: Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ SerumReview, Ingredients, Swatches: Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil: Boosts Skin’s Radiance, Nourishes, Hydrates Skin

Algenist has just introduced its Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum. Formulated to “minimize the appearance of deep wrinkles and strengthen the most fragile skin texture,” this product also promises to visibly reduce the look of age spots and discoloration. The serum contains micro-algae oil that can help intensely hydrate skin, as well as provide a Vitamin C derivative and plant collagen.

I will say upfront that I am a lover of serums, both for the way they absorb into the skin and their ability to achieve results. So I was excited about trying this one, especially after smelling it. The product contains a distinct aroma of chocolate, which, for me, was a huge plus.

I used this product twice a day, for 10 days, as directed. In the morning, I used along with an SPF 40 product, but at night, I used it alone, and not with a moisturizer (which was suggested) because I did not feel I needed one—the serum was sufficiently rich. It went on easily and absorbed well. And, as I said, the smell was luscious.

After 10 days, I can’t say I noticed any change in the wrinkle or dark spot situation (the latter a result of many foolish hours spent baking in the sun slathered in baby oil and armed with a tanning reflector—yikes!), but I did see a nice effect on my dull and dry winter skin, especially after using the serum at night. I woke up to a fresh, revitalized look, and my skin felt both soft and supple. So while it did not fulfill all of its claims, this is a good, solid product that yields a more than satisfactory result.
