St. Valentine's Day
Welcome to the magical world of Valentine’s Day.
The gift of love is the greatest gift of all, but every year on 14th February we remember St Valentine’s and the kindness of giving gifts. So perhaps this year is the same as all other years, or maybe its different.
Whether your gift is for a loved one, best pal, parents, siblings, or yourself, its all the same because you still believe in love! So Happy St Valentine’s Day to you from us!

The Magic Cream is famous for being an instant turnaround moisturiser, loved by celebrities and supermodels. Dryness and dullness are replaced with the dew of youth and gift of luminosity. Boasting a potent blend of plumping, firming, and line reducing complexes that rapidly bestows a luminosity to the skin.

The scent of perfume is something quite magical. Our choice of fragrance shares more than just a scent, it gives a little bit of our inner self to the world, a first impression and a lingering sillage. My Way is the scent of discoveries and connections for an openminded, curious and authentic woman who is ready to broaden her horizons and live meaningful encounters.
We are excited for the Limited Edition My Way Nacre, a luminous version of the original fragrance, infused with illuminating silky pearls for a new dazzling femininity.
This feminine fragrance is an encounter of consciously sourced ingredients. Bergamot meets orange blossom from Egypt in a luminous, sparkling start, with an amplified bright floral bouquet of tuberose and jasmine from India as the beating heart. Finally, a vibrant cedarwood from Virginia meets a sensual vanilla from Madagascar and white musks to close the composition.
Available in 16 seriously stunning shades, it now also boasts the thinnest possible texture infused with the brand’s unique Lip L.O.V.E. Complex, which stands for lycopene, olive oil, vitamin A&E, essential fatty acids-that will keep lips supple throughout the day. Aside from the original eight colours, there are now eight additional options, including Bombshell, the perfect pinky nude, Slaytina, a universal red, and Miss America for that perfect bright red! The collection features a mix of nude, pink, burgundy, and red hues that are suited for a variety of skin tones.
