Valentine's Day Self-Love Guide
Whether this Valentine’s Day is a me-day or a we-day, we hope you are able to prioritize loving yourself and treating your body and mind with kindness. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite products you can indulge in solo or with a partner this upcoming holiday.
Indulge in a face mask
There is nothing more relaxing than a refreshing face mask. Face masks can greatly improve specific skincare concerns through their ability to hydrate skin, exfoliate, remove excess oil or help improve the appearance of pores. They can also provide a spa-like facial experience in the comfort of your own home. After purifying your skin, follow up with a serum for the ultimate indulgence!
Looking to experience a spa-like facial from home? We recommend:
Forma Floris Soothing Clay Mask: Perfect for those looking to soothe redness and irritation. Nourishes sensitive skin and promotes regeneration.
Forma Viridi Balancing Clay Mask: Ideal for those looking to clarify pores, soothe texture, promote regeneration, and prevent future breakouts.
Forma Rosea Hydrating Clay Mask: Excellent for those looking to hydrate, brighten skin tone, smooth texture, and promote regeneration.
Enjoy a restful bath
Discover ultimate tranquillity by drawing a relaxing bath. Did you know that your skin releases endorphins in response to soothing warm water? Whether you're a bath salt, bath soak, or bath tea kind of person, there are endless scent combinations and bath enhancers to choose from.
Looking to elevate your baths? We recommend:
Give yourself (or your partner) a full body scrub down
Exfoliate away dry winter skin with an all-natural herbal infused body scrub. There are endless scent combinations and scrub intensities to choose from based on your preferences.

Light a candle or incense stick
Create a warming and therapeutic ambiance with your favourite candle or incense stick. No beauty ritual required. Just light and enjoy!
Looking to create a cozy or romantic vibe at home? Our top aromatherapy picks include:
Apply an essential oil roll-on
Essential oils are great for promoting wellness, especially when applied directly to key pressure points. Areas like the wrists, temples, and the back of the neck are spots where your roll-ons can be applied for maximum therapeutic benefits. For immediate results, these roll-ons can be applied directly into the palm of your hands, rubbed together to warm the oils, and breathed in deeply.
Lather on a hair mask
Whether you’re crafting your own from your kitchen or using your go-to product, hair masks take time to soak into your locks. What better time to do one than during your pre-planned TLC time? For great recipes, check BYRDIE’s list of top home hair masks that work!
Connect with your body
A sensual massage or a simple back rub between you and your partner is one of the easiest ways to boost the romance in your relationship. A massage can not only strengthen the bond between a couple, but it also helps to reduce stress and increase intimacy.
Luxurious botanical oils don't need to be exclusively for couples - Lather up for some self-love or use them as an all-over body treatment to leave your skin feeling renewed and hydrated.
Looking to spice things up in the bedroom this Valentine’s Day? Why not try Province Apothecary’s best selling Lover’s Kit which includes a sensual massage oil and luxurious, all-natural sex oil.
Prioritizing self-love, whether in a relationship or single, is especially important on Valentine’s day but should remain a focus beyond the holiday as well. Make sure to schedule some time to rest, connect with a friend or loved one, and most importantly take time to slow down and pamper yourself.
