At the moment we girls can’t just pop out to get our hair, nails or eyelashes done, but LashBase has one of these areas covered for us with their vegan-friendly strip lashes at only £8.99 each. Super fluffy, lightweight… and perfect for all of us who can't get to the lash tech right now due to lockdown. If you know someone who loves getting their eyelashes done – you have found the right gift for them right here. Fashions Finest loves the thickness which the lashes offer, without the weight, and with 15 styles to choose from, we also think that the choice and price is simply fabulous too.
In addition to strip lashes, LashBase also sells an Eyeliner Lash Adhesive at £15.99 which is honestly a complete game-changer when it comes to applying strip lashes. This 2 in 1 product applies like a liner but works like glue, allowing you to apply strip lashes easily and within seconds.
Fashions Finest loves how easy this eyeliner/glue works to fix the beautiful eyelashes into place, and we were really astounded at how even a novice could apply them straight away!
Treat that special person, who loves to bat their eyes at you, to Lash Base Eyeliner glue and lashes. A treat they will love you for this Valentine’s.

Cienna Rose Nail Varnish
Forget about wearing your heart on your sleeve this Valentine’s Day, paint it on your nails instead! From the perfect shade of red to pretty pinks, vegan and cruelty free London nail brand Cienna Rose have a great selection of nail polishes for thst special someone, at just £9.00 each.
Cienna Rose nail varnishes do not contain any of the 12 common nasties found in many nail polishes, and not only that, but they are also infused with vitamins, antioxidants and nourishing lemongrass oil to help take care of nails whilst also giving the perfect DIY paint job. Long lasting and chip resistant, nails are left with a professional looking, high shine - gel like finish.
Fashions Finest love how Cienna Rose goes that extra mile in caring for our nails, and also with caring for the environment. Nail polishes are cruelty free and vegan friendly; they do not contain any animal derived ingredients or parabens at all.
The varnishes themselves are easy and smooth to apply, dried quickly and left a vibrant and shiny colour – even after only one coat. We especially loved the Je T’aime red – in honour of Valentine’s day, and we think a bottle or two of Cienna Rose Nail Varnish, from the wide range they have available, would be a beautiful and thoughtful gift for the one you love this year. The only other thing you need to decide – is will you offer to paint their toes for them?

So Eco are working hard to combat the problems of excessive & plastic packaging, by offering 100% responsibly and ethically sourced options for their packaging and products. They are quickly becoming one of the faces of responsible beauty within the industry, and offering real alternatives to us as consumers.
So Eco Make-Up Brush Set:
This Ultimate Gift Set of make-up brushes £30 is a collection of 9 essential makeup tools which cover everything from your complexion to your brows and eye makeup. With stylish, highly sustainable bamboo handles, 100% cruelty-free synthetic taklon bristles and recycled aluminium ferrules, this gift set really is the full package. Not only does it look great as a gift, but we at Fashions Finest think that the brushes are strong and sturdy, and the bristles are soft and full bodied, but not floppy when they are being used to apply make-up. A wonderful gift for any make-up wearer who is environmentally conscious this Valentine’s.
So Eco Biodegradable Hair Set:
The So Eco Biodegradable Detangling Hair Set, £14.99 Set is fantastic for cultivating healthy hair. Made from fully compostable and bio-degradable material which is ethically sourced, compostable, recyclable and bio-degradable, this would be a fabulous gift for that special someone in your life who takes hair care seriously. The detangling comb has a wide-tooth design, minimising damage and breakage whilst effortlessly detangling wet or dry hair, and then the cushioned detangling brush guarantees a smooth and tangle free brushing on dry hair, or whilst styling.
Brushworks Rose Quartz Set:
This Rose Quartz Resin Massage set £14.99 is a must have addition to your skin care routine. Designed to soothe and cool the eye area whilst helping to reduce puffiness, eye bags and assist absorption of eye cream or serum into the skin, these tools work to give your face a youthful and radiant glow.
Ideal as a gift for yourself, or the one you love this Valentines, the Rose Quartz Resin Gua Sha is ideal for improving the skin’s elasticity, promoting cellular and skin rejuvenation. Alongside the Massage Tool, both products help to reduce puffiness, wrinkles and dark circles, which can cloud the face – especially for women of a certain age. Fashions Finest tried this and love the cool and relaxing feeling of the roller on the skin, as well as the afterglow and ease of tension, stress and anxiety, whilst using it.

Belle Regime Natural Soaps and Skincare
Belle Regime is a small, brand new British company run by Karlene Reid.
Originally from Jamaica, London based Karlene became more and more conscious about the quality of ingredients used in the skincare growing up, and the impact they had upon her skin health. During the pandemic, while working from home she began to look at handmade soaps, and found she became enthralled with the method of cold process soap making, and loved the fact that she now had total control of the ingredients that go into her products. She started to make soaps for family and friends, but the feedback was phenomenal and she quickly realised she had found something special. Belle Regime was officially launched in time for Christmas 2020.
Karlene specialises in a wide range of bath and body products with a luxury self-care focus which includes vegan plant-based organic ingredients and high quality essential oils. Belle Regime products include: Soaps, Bath Bombs, Body butter, Bubble Bars, Shower Steamers, Antibacterial Hand Wash (alcohol–free), Whipped Soap and Sugar Scrub.
Visit the Belle Regime website to choose from two Valentines gift boxes, priced from £18 - where you can choose soaps and body butters to have included, or just browse their selection and put together your own Valentines gift.
Fashions Finest love how divine the products look and smell. The aromatherapy shower steamers are just perfect, and turn shower time into a spa session in your own bathroom – especially in the winter time. Gorgeous!

We have become so accustomed to the idea that, Valentine’s day is and should be about being in a relationship and that leaves us feeling unloved and hating the day. Valentine’s day is about celebrating love and that love does not necessarily have to be within a relationship. So if you are not part of a couple enjoy the day celebrating the things that you love, your family, friends, your pets or just the everyday things in life that puts a smile on your face.
Love is about many things but I believe that the most important element of love is to love ourselves because if we do not love ourselves first how can we be open to receive the love of others.
We can celebrate our love by spending time with our girlfriends, spoiling ourselves with that special item we have been saving up for, buying our favourite flowers, lipstick or perfume.
So this valentine’s day lets love ourselves by feeling gorgeous and taking care of ourselves first.
Gift yourself with your favourite flowers there is nothing like fresh flowers to brighten up a space and put a smile on our face.
Pamper your self
We all lead such busy lives and our mind is constantly racing with what not to do and ticking of the things on our daily “to do” list that taking time out for ourselves is usually not on our list. So make this valentine’s day a pamper day.
