The phrase ‘’Girls support girls’’ is overused. Why don’t we spice it up a little bit with “chicks before pricks”? Uteruses before duderuses? Sisters before misters? Ovaries before brovaries? I don’t know, you pick. If nobody’s asking you out on Valentine’s, trust us, it won’t be a problem. It’s 2022, nobody gives a damn about V-day any longer – it is much better to celebrate it with the ones who never left – our besties!
And in conjunction with Galentine’s Day that falls on every 13th of February, who’s ready to go all-out? Leave it to us to find the perfect swoon-worthy gift for your chickas! Alexa, play Me & My Girls by Selena Gomez.

Say hello to smoother and more uniform skin.
5. DR. DENNIS GROSS SPECTRALITE FACEWARE PRO PEARL

Don’t let this limited-edition 3-minute LED mask fool you with its poker face. It has a combination of 100 red lights and 62 blue lights that work together to smooth wrinkles, diminish discolouration, and clear acne for a beautiful, youthful complexion that will get you compliments from everyone.
6. ORIBE TRÈS SET STRUCTURE SPRAY
Lock in your tresses for date nights of all kinds (we reckon even a stop at the trampoline park!) with this all-in-one styling spray that protects hair from heat up to 230°C, and provides volume and all-day hold while keeping it soft. Don’t worry about any pesky residue with this spray – it’s unique mist-to-mousse technology applies as a white dust only to dissolve and disappear while you style your hair. Not to mention, this concoction of amino-rich pea protein and macadamia seed oil nourishes and smooths strands while controlling frizz. Can we say, coiffed to perfection?
