Sugar and Valentine's Day go hand and hand, but when you are searching for the sweetest gift for your sweetheart this year, remember your options aren't limited to heart shaped sweets.
The Sugar Association is pleased to highlight the growing category of sugar-based cosmetics in aspecial section on its website.
This section is full of fun and luxurious gifts perfect for pampering that special someone.
Among the items featured are a number of sugar polishes and scrubs. Sugar scrubs are truly an all-natural treat for your body. The scrubs aid in the cleansing of pores by removing dirt that is not visible to the naked eye. This, in turn, leaves your body with a healthy, polished glow. Many of the polishes and scrubs are packed with nourishing organic, antioxidant rich ingredients and anti-aging vitamins.
In addition to sugar scrubs and polishes, this section also includes unique bath fizzies that can transform your tub into a delicious ice cream soda with the fizzing action of mineral sea salts, aromatic oils and nourishing ingredients like milk, honey and flower petals. With over 30 `flavors' to choose from, it's great gift for those who prefer a fun, guilt-free indulgence.
The Sugar & Butter Lip exfoliator/plumper also makes a unique gift idea. Its combination of beeswax and organic brown sugar gently exfoliate dull, dry skin. After bringing your lips back to life, make them full and kissable with the tinted lip plumper end. A simple sweep will give your lips a natural, glowing pink tint while plumping and diminishing lines to reduce feathering. You can actually feel this plumper working when the cool mint and ginger ingredients go to work.
These are just a few of the sugar-based cosmetics available that can be directly delivered to your office or home. The section also features hydrating lotions and shaving gels, and everything else you need to have your own "spa day" this Valentine's Day.
