It's hard not to get excited for Valentine's Day when you look at this festive candle from Diptyque. The brand's limited-edition Rosaviola Scented Candle ($67, shop.nordstrom.com) is not only pleasing to the eyes (have you seen that pucker decal?), but the bold scent is worthy of burning anytime you need a pick-me-up.
Aerin's Rose Body Scrub ($65, aerin.com) is our pick for the prettiest addition to your vanity. This batik-embellished packaging is worthy of keeping out all year around.
You could give this four-piece lip crayon set from TRUE Isaac Mizrahi ($36, beautybrands.com), but chances are you're going to want to keep the semi-matte and gel shades all to yourself.

We've been fans of tarte's Tartlette palette for some time now, but this compact Tarlette Tease ($21, sephora.com) is upping the game with this pint-sized (and expertly designed) palette. With the same color scheme as the original Tartlette, consider this a favorite in to-go form.
From the Smoothing Body Scrub to the Revitalizing Body Oil, this Valentine's Day Gift Collection from Tata Harper ($240, tataharperskincare.com) is everything you need to start your natural skin care collection. Trust us, this is definitely a treat worth indulging in.
Whether you have a candlelit dinner planned on V-day or not, you can get the luminescent glow only candles can give with Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder ($30, toofaced.com). The combo of two light-refracting powders makes getting that Instagram filter look totally achievable IRL.
Not only does the new Victoria's Secret Love Me More ($58, victoriassecret.com) smell warm and luxe (notes include grapefruit, French canelé, and liquid amber), but the bottle just oozes sexy. Need we say more?
What's one thing we love almost as much as lipstick? A good lipstick carrier, and this Leah Goren x ban.do Get It Together pouch ($14, bando.com) fits the bill. Store your fave shades of red, plum, and pink in this compact zip pouch, which fits nicely in any handbag.

We challenge you not to feel uber relaxed with REN's Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil ($48, sephora.com), which counts rose oil, palmarosa, and geranium extract as calming ingredients. Simply add to your bath and enjoy.
There's no denying Fresh's Sugar Lip Treatment is a must for any chapped lip-sufferer, but this special-edition Suga(RED) Lip Treatment ($24, sephora.com) is a must for all beauty lovers. It's still formulated with the same SPF 15, antioxidant-rich grapeseed oil, but with this special release, 25 percent of the retail price will go to the US Fund for the Global Fund, which can provide more than two weeks of life-saving HIV medicine to those in need.
