Valentines Day Beauty Gifts For Under £50

The day of repugnant declaration is almost upon us. You might have noticed the sudden injection of red and pink everything in the shops lately, but what you might not have noticed is the unambiguous divide of interest. The world parts into two when it comes to Valentines Day. Singletons loath the commercialism and loved-up relationship folk lap up the attention. Even though this year will be my 8th glorious Valentines with my husband (3 of which are married), I’m not big on the materialism of Valentines. Sure, it’s nice to get treated and my husband puts in a lot of effort, but love should not be restricted to once a year. Sounds very Hallmark of me, but relationship or not, nothing is more sickly than the barrage of Facebook posts of #relationshipgoals from couples who you know deep down don’t give a shit (damn Gina…that didn’t mean to come out as harsh as it did).

Whatever your feelings of Valentines Day, it’s hard to not get swept up in its infectious charm. My husband and I rarely exchange gifts on Valentines, when we do, we restrict our gift choices to budget-friendly options (well his present is usually budget-friendly) of products which we’ve always wanted, but never got round to buying for ourselves. Obviously, being the beauty enthusiast that I am, I’ve put together a list of beauty products under £50 should you wish a little gift inspiration to nudge your partner in the right direction, or, if you fancy treating yourself…
