At a loss as to what to get for that special someone this Valentine's Day? Here are our suggestions.
1. GEO. F. TRUMPER'S GFT COLOGNE
Manufacturers are calling this the "scent of old-school romance" and it's definitely true because when I first smelt cologne at the store, it immediately reminded me of my father.
Not sure if that's a bad thing but I guess if you're a typically old-school guy and you're fine with smelling like a dad, then be my guest.
Nothing wrong with that.
It's bottled in quite a stylish bottle and packaged in an old-school gold box that the older men may love.
Available at We Need A Hero, 57, Eng Hoon Street, just for February.
2. MAC LOOK IN A BOX, ALL ABOUT PINK
If the woman in your life is one to splash cash on make-up, then chances are there's no such thing as "too many cosmetic products" in her dictionary.
Add to her collection this lip-and-eye set by MAC. All About Pink has pretty shades of pink in its lipstick, lipgloss, eyeliner pencil and eyeshadow palette.
The hues are so natural and smoky that she's bound to use this daily. So think of it this way: Your gift will make her think of you every day.
Available at all MAC stores.
3. POLO RED'S LIMITED EDITION JUMBO SIZE EDT
A man who smells nice catches my attention. And this energising fragrance is one that will do just that.
The first thing that popped in my mind after smelling this was an expensive car.
Manufacturers are saying that this concoction is a "fiery mix of spicy red saffron, fresh red grapefruit and deep red wood".
I just know that it gives off a classy air.
Available at all major department stores.
4. T-PUR TOTAL CONFIDENCE SET
If your other half spends more time popping pimples on his face than you do, then this is just the gift he needs.
Comprising a 40ml T-pur Unclogging Purifying Cleanser, a 30ml T-pur Pore-Reducing Toner and the 50ml T-pur Moisturiser, this set is said to help acne problems.
After trying the cleanser on a friend who is prone to oily skin and pimples, he said that his skin felt clean.
No offence, boys, but some of you could do with this set.
Available at all Biotherm counters.
5. SHU UEMURA LAQUE SUPREME
This latest release by the brand comes in 15 pretty shades, but my favourite two have to be the dark purple (Evil Beauty) and the bold red (Passionate).
The texture of this lip colour goes on really smooth and the thick formula sticks on your lip the entire day.
No girl will ever have enough lippies, so trust us when we say this one will definitely be much appreciated.
Available at all Shu Uemura and Sephora stores.
6. PHILOSOPHY'S LOVESWEPT FRAGRANCE COLLECTION
$69 (Spray Fragrance), $42 (Shower Gel), $60 (Body Lotion)
These may seem costly, but their scent alone make them totally worth it.
My favourite is the Body Lotion. Since the dry skin on my legs is a problem, it's only natural that this intensely hydrating lotion impressed me the most.
The spray smells sweet and floral and instantly makes you feel more feminine.
The 60ml bottle is perfect for the office desk.
Available at all Philosophy and Sephora stores.
