Our Valentine’s Day gift guide continues for you last minute shoppers. Hey, no judgment—it’s never too late to show love. And furthermore, love doesn’t need to be confined to one day. Show yourself love by taking care of your health and show friends love by showing up for them.
Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a bouquet of roses, but for a long-lasting alternative to this traditional symbol of romance, try Kesh Beauty’s Argan Oil with Rose Essence—and treat your skin and hair to some love at the same time. Imported directly from a cooperative in southern Morocco, Kesh Beauty’s argan oils are 100% certified organic and are extracted from the fresh kernels of the argan fruit tree using ancient techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation. Visit keshbeauty.com for details.

This early part of the year is the perfect time to reexamine your beauty routine. KORA Organics offers the purest, premium quality, certified organic ingredients that gently nourish, rejuvenate and beautify skin. I recently tried their Calming Lavender Mist ($44 at KORAOrganics.com), a nurturing facial mist enriched with noni, antioxidants, orange, lavender and bergamot oils to decongest, smooth and cleanse the skin. It felt great and smelled better!
For a wonderful old-fashioned remedy, look no further than Pommade Divine—a calming balm for rough, chapped skin. It can even be used to treat burns and bites and was a favorite of Marie Antoinette’s great-grandmother, the Duchess of Devonshire and Lady Diana Cooper. Pommade Divine was discontinued in 1987 but has now been restored for modern ladies (and gentlemen) and is suitable for all skin types. Available at pommadedivine.com.
Need a last-minute boost for your Valentine adventures or a new look entirely? Try Blow Beauty Bar. I did. Wow. I went in feeling pretty drab and came out looking fab and smelling like a raspberry. My shining, smooth locks were a big hit with my friends at a party that night. And strangers came up to me to ask were I’d had my hair done. I went to the Bridgehampton location, but there’s also a Blow Beauty Bar in East Hampton. Both shops now offer cuts and color, in addition to blow-outs and they’re open seven days a week! 2462 Main Street, Bridgehampton, 631-537-8000; 59 The Circle, East Hampton, 631-324-8888, blowbeautybars.com.
