Love is in the air, in your eyes… and on your skin. Make a special effort to look and feel fantastic for your love object – that includes yourself…
In an ideal world, we’d show our partners care and consideration every day, but juggling life’s demands can be so hectic that couple time is often not as frequent as it should be. Use Valentine’s Day as a gentle reminder to stop and smell the delicious bouquet of roses and why not make space for romance?
Soft, caressable skin for both of you
The skin on your body, hands and feet should feel like velvet. You don’t want to feel any roughness or snagging.
Couple time gets even more alluring when you have smooth body skin and smooth, soft feet. In the shower, get soft and moisturised skin with Bioderma Atoderm Shower Gel, then buff it with a gentle body scrub or loofah to leave the skin clear of blemishes and rosy with health.
Few things are more off-putting than stubble prickling your partner. Make sure you’re as smooth as baby.
For her For lasting smoothness, have your legs waxed, or DIY by shaving or using a depilatory cream. The latter lasts longer, but first do a skin-sensitivity patch test if you‘ve never done it before.
For him Please shave your face. Five o’clock shadow will give your partner’s delicate skin carpet burn. Afterwards, apply a post-shaving balm to soften your skin and beard hairs. Try Bioderma Sensibio Forte.
For both of you Don’t dry your skin completely when you step out of the bath or shower. If you leave it slightly damp when you apply lashings of body lotion, it will be doubly moisturised. Use a neutral body lotion (we like Bioderma Atoderm Milk), then spray your chosen fragrance in the air and walk through the mist for an overall fragrance kiss.
Get pretty fingertips and tootsies with a rich, jewel shade are eye catching. Pair your signature shade with a stunning outfit or your favourite slinky negligee and you’re sure to have a great night.
Be nice to be near
The feel of your skin and the scent of your favourite fragrance can be addictive to the object of your desire, as sense of smell is directly connected to our limbic brains, the seat of our emotions so, when they smell your trademark scent, it will affect them instantly.
Application rules: Certain areas on your body are hot spots for scent. The heat they generate makes fragrance come alive and linger. Apply it behind your ears, between your breasts, on elbow creases, behind knees and on inner wrists.
Hint: if you decide to try something new, make sure you know it’s something he or she will love. On your way out the door, spritz on a fragrance to finish off the ultimate love package.
Who wants to kiss and make up?
We fall in love by gazing into each other’s faces and our brains register our mood continually with what they reveal. So you want to send the right message…
If you’re stepping out with your beau or besties, a glowing skin is needed for any and all occasions. Reflect your radiance from the inside out with Bourjois City Radiance Foundation. The formula contains radiance-boosting pigments to even out skin tone – all for a more natural, fresh, radiant complexion. The SPF30 allows you to take a romantic stroll on the beach, carefree!

Next, add a tinge of blush to soften the mood, the Bourjois Little Round Pot makes it easy to swipe on and slip it into your bag for a sneaky touch-up.
The eyes are the most important tool of seduction – after all, how can you fall in love without eye contact? Make sure your eyes look beautifully relaxed by erasing all signs of tiredness with an instant pep-up eye cream. Try Noreva Noveane 3D Rollon Anti-ageing Eye and Lip Cream.
A soft, smoky look is super easy with Bourjois Smoky Eyes Trio Eyeshadow.
For both of you: Lips should be soft and smooth for kissing, so eliminate dry, rough skin and give them a rosy glow by brushing them gently with a wet toothbrush.
Apply a nourishing lip balm Bioderma Atoderm Restorative Lip Balm and let it soak in for a while.
Breath should be sweet, so brush and floss well and keep some Xylitol mints handy if you’re having a spicy meal.
