He pays the mortgage and is always helping me out of financial scrapes so luxury moisturisers is one thing I could do for him. Luckily, he loves (home-grown) facials, pedicures and naked body rub-downs (his word for exfoliation) as much as the next girl, so this Valentines day hell be unwrapping the following:

Granite O Chocolat, £49.95 by Sensation Chocolat
This creamy body scrub contains real cocoa, which means that while it makes skin smell good enough to eat, it also leaves it soft and nourished, thanks to high levels of natural vitamins and antioxidants. I dont normally like beauty products that smell of food, but Ill make an exception for this one as its not sickly and it is Valentines Day.
Anti-ageing Treatment Day Cream, £100 by M Lab at Harrods
My boyfriends always complaining that nothings powerful enough to get rid of the dry patches on his skin (except the Vaseline), but Im sure this rich, active ingredient-packed moisturiser will convert him.
Lip Fuel, £11 by Kyoku
Hes always borrowing my lip balm - tomorrow Ill be able to borrow his. This is a great, juicy formulation that makes lips tingle.
Exfoliating Facial Scrub, £19 by Kyoku
Im as excited about this new scrub as my male colleagues, who loved it. It contains lots of natural ingredients, including walnuts and goats milk, its creamy, the granules arent too coarse and the smell isnt too for men.
Massage Oil Candle, £48.80 by Yonka
This is a bedroom toy with a very sophisticated edge. Instead of wax, the candle is made of plant butters and essential oils, which when they melt can be poured on to skin and used for massage. The warm, slippery oil and the subtle, sensual smell as the candle burns away is all very sexy indeed. I should be able to give my rhinestone-encrusted push-up bra a rest this year.
