Plan the Perfect “Galentine’s Day” Spa Night With These Skin Care Products and Party Tips
Posted on February 13 2019
At Whish, we’re all about empowering women. That’s why we absolutely love the idea of celebrating Galentine’s Day on February 13th – the unofficial official holiday for ladies to celebrate their besties!
And, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a little get-together, especially when it’s doing something fun with your friends. This Galentine’s Day, it’s all about pampering yourself in good company.
So, without further ado, let’s talk about how to plan the perfect Galentine’s Day spa night with some of our amazing Whish skin care products and party tips to host an unforgettable night!
Unwind With Mocktails & Manicures
You deserve to R-E-L-A-X, and what better way to kick off your Galentine’s Day celebration, than with a little lavender-infused mocktail (or make it a cocktail if you’re 21 or older) and get right into it with at-home manis. Cheers!
Depending on how many gals you’ve invited to your party, we suggest either asking friends to bring their own nail file and manicure tools or plan on providing new, clean nail files and tools (like inexpensive cuticle sticks) to your guests. Along with the tools, supply each guest with a bowl of warm water to soak hands and gently work cuticles back.
Now, for the fun part! Play off of your lavender-infused mocktail with one of our most beloved Whish skin care products, Lavender Sugar Scrub. Provide each friend with a dollop of scrub to massage into their hands revealing smoother, more nourished skin. Rinse hands and pat dry – voila!
But, wait! There’s more to this mani. Take turns pampering each other with a much-deserved hand massage with this incredibly relaxing skin care product, our Lavender Body Butter.
A massage is a great way to increase blood circulation and help relieve tension – yes, even your hands carry tension. When coupling a massage with our fully loaded lotion that both softens and soothes skin while also helping to replenish and firm, you’re in for a big treat!
Polished to Perfection
Finally, it’s time for some polish. So many nail polishes on the market are chock full of harmful ingredients. Keeping this in mind when selecting a polish, we encourage you and your best friends to find non-toxic options, which can still be found in tons of gorgeous colors.
Now that you’ve had some time to say “cheers!” and do your nails, let’s move onto the next spa night activities: facials and dessert.
Spa Facials & Dessert for the Win
There’s no need to go to a fancy spa for this Galentine’s Day facial. Using our Whish products, we bring the spa to your house, making these DIY facials easy and enjoyable.
First, you and your squad need to start with a clean slate. Our Revitalizing Cleansing Oil is a detergent free, water activated rich oil, that melts away makeup and impurities without drying your skin. This skin care product is great for all skin types.
To use the cleansing oil, simply add a quarter size portion of the product to a dry face and spread it gently and thoroughly all over. Add just a few drops of warm water to emulsify the oils, then rinse away the long day! Don’t forget to stock your bathroom with clean face towels for each guest.
Once you and your gal pals are fresh-faced, it’s time to apply our Renewing Mud Mask. This mask is the ultimate triple threat skin care product. Not only does it improve the skin’s texture, but it also purifies and exfoliates.
Simply rub a thin layer of the mud mask onto your face and leave it on for 15 seconds up to 2 minutes (depending on how well your skin tolerates this skin care product). When you’re ready to remove, rinse mask off in a circular motion to activate all the exfoliating goodness.
Pat face dry and you’ll immediately notice brighter, more nourished looking skin. This gem of a product can be used 1-2 times per week, so we foresee many more spa nights in the near future for you and your friends!
Last, but certainly not least, is moisturizer. Our Nourishing Dew Mask with Rose Hip + Lotus will definitely appeal to all your guests. Although this is technically a mask, this skin care product wears a lot like lotion.
Tell your guests you’ve found the fountain of youth with this product, because just one application provides intense hydration, reduces the appearance of fine lines, and reduces inflammation. You can apply it and leave on for 15 minutes or leave on all night and rinse it off the next morning.
Sweets for Your BFFs
What’s a Galentine’s Day party without some indulgence? We absolutely love the idea of choosing a color theme. Whatever color you choose, try finding desserts that match. A candy or cookie bar is playful and gives guests the option to choose from a variety of flavors.
We also can’t deny that a gorgeous cake is a great option and we’re definitely crushing on this Pink Champagne Cake. No matter what, you simply can’t go wrong when it comes to sweets, and just in case you need some ideas, here are 21 pink-inspired Galentine’s Day Dessert Recipes to choose from.
Activities & Skin Care Product Giveaways
By now, your friends should be feeling relaxed, glam, and ready for some fun! One easy and totally Instagram-worthy activity is a photo booth. Collect fun props like hats or hand-made signs and decorate a blank wall in your home with colorful, Galentine’s Day inspired décor (we’re thinking lots of pink and hearts)! Supply a polaroid camera for your guests and get ready to strike a pose for this super cute party favor.
If you and your friends are more into games, then you can’t go wrong with charades or the super fun guessing game, Heads Up! Just remember to keep the competition friendly since Galentine’s is all about celebrating #girlpower.
And we must throw this idea out there for all you music-lovin' ladies: Galentine’s Day karaoke. This is another fun way to let loose and just have some good old-fashioned fun with your friends (you and your gals will really have a laugh with this activity especially with your mud mask on)!
Don't Let Your Girls Leave Empty-Handed
To be the hostess with the mostess, you have to send your buds home with a little swag, and we have just the skin care products in mind: our Body Butter Gift Set. This collection is ideal for on-the-go since each delightful mini tube fits in a pocket or purse for a burst of lasting hydration.
Your besties can choose from five delicious scents: pomegranate, coconut, blue agave, lavender, and almond butter. You simply can’t go wrong with a gift like this and we’ve even saved you the hassle of gift wrapping since each body butter set comes in a bright and cheerful Whish skin care product gift box.
