​​Common Heir’s Vitamin C Serum

Gift your favorite girl this Valentine’s Day Common Heir’s Vitamin C Serum, a must-have skin care product for daily and nightly routines. The gentle-but-powerful serum prevents and improves the appearance of dullness, dark spots, and aging. These biodegradable, plant-based capsules are good for travel and even better for the environment! $88

 Intelligent Elixirs Skincare

Bring a little love to your favorite Galentine with a skincare ritual from Intelligent Elixirs. The Citrus Facial Scrub will polish her skin to perfection — enhanced with amino acids, lavender and apple fruit extract, skin is left smooth and radiant. She can also pamper her skin with the ultra rich Ultra Restorative Moisturizer which imparts moisture and keeps skin healthy and glowing… and did we mention that this cream has a light rose scent? All formulations are clean and cruelty-free. (Bonus: it’s available at Central Market stores across Texas.) From $17

Wit & West specializes in creating high-quality fragrances and 100% botanicals that are made with carefully selected natural ingredients. We recommend purchasing the signature Rosé L.A. Perfume.

We also recommend their sample sizes to throw in your travel bag. $60
