The Gift Guide | Valentines For All

We're in love

Valentines day isn’t just for cozy couples or Tinderella singles on their first date. It’s a day I like to remind my friends how lucky I am to have them in my life as conspirators, colleagues and counsellors. Love yourself, love your friends, love your family. Spread the lovin’, that’s my maxim. At Sauce HQ, we’ve been counting down, and we’ve compiled the sweet-treat-six for you, or your pals to enjoy on this red letter day

Signature Scent - Elizabeth Arden Always Red

Bold. Modern. Light up the town. An alluring and luxurious floriental fragrance made for the leader of the cool clique. Bright accents of red plum and passion fruit lead to a textured floral heart and rich amber base for the strikingly confident woman. Click those Louboutins and you’re good to go.

Skin that shimmers - Elizabeth Arden, Limited Edition Highlighter

Treat yourself to loved-up glowing sking. Limited edition opulent packaging gets a high five from this gold-lovin’ girl. Illuminate your skin with this radiant tri-tone highlighter for a soft, natural glow. Optical diffusers soften the look of fine lines and imperfections – can I get a hallelujah - while microlight minerals, vitamins and environmental protectants soothe and protect. 

Trophy nails - Body Shop Colour Crush™ Nails range

This was a winner with the team at Sauce HQ. Give yourself or a friend a mega memorable manicure with new season shades from Body Shop’s Colour Crush™ Nails range. With on-trend metallics, nail sequins, rich hues and limited-edition packaging, this special edition range will get hearts racing.

Skin quencher - Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturiser

You’ve officially over-did it last night and you’re feeling like you’d look better with a bag over your head or hiding under the duvet. Fatigue and the elements can take their toll. Clinique’s go-to goodness keeps our pretty faces fighting fit. The dermatologist-developed formula combines all-day hydration with skin-strengthening ingredients to help skin look younger, longer.

It is all in the preparation - Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer

I have mature skin that tends to lean towards oily when wearing makeup. The thought of my pores being less spa pool-sized, makes me excited for this product. Formulated without artificial fragrances, colours or parabens, it’s a lightweight, non-greasy primer minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by dehydration, sealing in moisture, while mattifying against oily shine. The result is a silky, luminous finish and an even skin tone.
My face <3’s you, Dermalogica.

Flawless finish - Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre

This beautiful finely-milled powder has me feeling a little Marie Antoinette, and a lot spoiled. Chanel has always been a brand I’ve coveted. This ultra-soft loose powder provides sheer, light coverage with a soft matte finish, setting and perfecting makeup as it evens skin tone. Photo-reflective pigments help disguise imperfections without emphasising lines. Spending time in the powder room with this product is a pleasure and walking out confident is even better still.
