Bamford is one of my all-time favourite organic brands. Its premium products are made from the finest organic and botanical ingredients. This set of three heart-shaped Pebble Soaps, (£30, www.bamford.co.uk) is a gorgeous gift and are they are individually scented with rose, geranium and jasmine essential oils. Triple-milled, they leave skin soft and velvety.

New from the brand for this season are the gorgeous ‘twin’ Body Splashes. The pair of fragrances – One Evening and One Morning – are inspired by the natural essences experienced during evening and morning country walks. Based on traditional scented waters, which are said to pre-date modern perfumery, it’s Bamford’s answer to a new, light way of wearing fragrance. The One Morning Body Splash (£15, www.bamford.co.uk) is inspired by a quintessential English country morning. The light water is fragranced with violet leaf, vanilla and iris and is specially blended to scent the entire body. Perfect for travel, is the mini version (10ml) shown here, in its own pretty, linen bag.

Making lips kissable – just in time for Valentine’s – are Korres Lip Butters (£8, www.debenhams.com). Available in a variety of colours, the soft balm is deeply hydrating and leaves lips soft and healed.

Containing shea butter, each of the different varieties –  Wild Rose, Pomegranate, Guava, Quince, Jasmine and Mango – gives a soft sheen, light tint of colour and a subtle shine.

Especially launched for Valentine’s Day is the special edition Korre’s Wild Rose Collection (£20, www.debenhams.com). Containing Japanese Rose Body Milk, Japanese Rose Shower Gel and Wild Rose Lip Butter, the trio gift set is based around the Asian rose. I love Korres’ shower gels and this one is one of the best. It’s rich and nourishing – due to its wheat proteins and active aloe – with a light, uplifting scent. The milk sinks into skin quickly and has an unusual powdery texture that gives it a depth that body milks normally don’t have. It combines pro-vitamin B5, shea butter and jojoba oil to keep skin supple and hydrated. The lip butter, meanwhile, leaves lips eminently kissable with and gives a rose tinted ‘bitten’ effect.

Love, love, love.
