Just because you’re single on Valentine’s Day, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have the carte blanche to get a gift for yourself. Sure, we all love getting a bouquet of our favorite flowers from someone special, but blooms only have a lifespan of a few days. Unlike the real deal, floral beauty products last a whole lot longer, smell just as a nice, and will make your skin feel pretty, too. Aside from their intoxicating scents, flowers have a long list of beauty benefits including hydration, soothing redness, and reviving dull, limp hair. The following 10 products are a wilt-free way to treat yourself this Valentine’s Day.
1. Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence
If your V-Day plans include a rom-com marathon and letting the waterworks flow (us too), spritz yourself with this hydrating essence as the credits of your last movie roll. Infused with a blend of rose and lavender hydrosois, this soothing blend will moisturize and calm the redness and puffiness from your tears.
