Galentine’s Day Gift Guide…Cause Your BFF Needs Love Too

By  | 

I’m fortunate enough to have a handful of BFFs. Yes, contrary to popular belief (when in the sixth grade) you can have more than one best friend. So there’s no need to play Duck Duck Goose to select the gal who’ll keep all of your secrets. You can play M.A.S.H (Mansion, Apartment, Sack, House); dish on boys, girls…or both; and plot the purchase of neighboring mansions with as many pals as you wish. Unless you end up living in a sack.

Whatever your future dwelling one things is for sure – you’ll need gifts. And what better time to give presents to your gal pal(s) than on Galentine’s Day? Whether she’s single, married, in a relationship or a “situationship,” your BFF needs love. So hit the interwebs and get to spending! Here is the exclusive Love Sujeiry Galentine’s Day Gift Guide

Shea Moisture’s promise is simple: their products have no parabens, mineral oil, petroleum, formaldehyde, synthetic fragrances, and pretty much anything that’ll damage your tresses. That makes Shea Moisture the perfect gift for the hair-obsessed chica who doesn’t skimp on her mane. Their new line, Argan Oil and Almond Milk Smooth and Tame, not only smells delicious, but it also controls frizz and smoothes your locks. Their shampoo and conditioner is sulfate free and revives hair. The Thermo-Protect Milk is a leave-in that blocks humidity and seals split ends, making it a perfect styling product for curly-haired gals. Throw in the Blow Out Creme and she’ll be a happier friend! Cause she’ll say buh-bye to flyaways and heat damage. Now that’s #SheaLove.

If you really love your BFF, you want her to have great skin. To have an extra luminous face, she needs to treat it with some extra TLC. Enter Glow for a Cause and their Facial Clay Mask. The vegan product is made in America and formulated with Australian and Rhassoul clays, which are known to clear and revive the skin. The addition of primrose oil and carrot oil nourishes the skin with its anti-aging properties. And it smells like lavender and lime! Yum.

Born Skincare Pure Foam Cleanser

You must add Born Skincare’s Pure Foam Cleanser to your Galentine’s Day gift bag. I’ve been using this product for a month now and it’s great for sensitive skin. It washes away dirt but doesn’t leave the face super dry. Since it’s a foaming cleanser, however, it’s best to wipe away makeup with Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes and then wash your face with Born, as their cleanser doesn’t remove deep makeup. Still, it’s a great face wash for a light makeup day! Plus, it’s organic. Winning!

Frownies Aromatherapy Cellulite Cream

Google Frownies Aroma Therapy Cellulite Cream. I dare you. Did you read all the rave reviews? Well, your BFF can also be a satisfied customer. The Frownies Aroma Therapy Cellulite Cream tightens and tones the skin, which results in less cellulite. That means your gal pal will slip her nargas in a bikini and will proudly show off her body.

Who says you can’t give your friend jewelry! On this Galentine’s Day, gift her a fun watch – with attitude. Watchitude is a cute slap watch that takes me back to the 90’s, child. It’s easy to put on and take off; and it’s splash, rain and sweat proof. In the photo above, I am wearing #308 – Plaid Skirt. It really is the cutest thing ever! Now, where’s my BFF so we can reattempt M.A.S.H. I currently live in an apartment and need a house, y’all.
