Love Yourself Valentine Event

Love Yourself Valentine Event

Love Yourself Valentine Event

You might believe Valentine’s Day is only for people who have a special someone to celebrate with, but in reality, you don’t need a valentine to celebrate. We believe that Valentine’s day shouldn’t only be about showing your significant other that you love them but also showing your love for yourself.

Valentine’s Day is the day of celebrating you! Instead of expecting your significant other to plan something special for both of you to do on this “special day”, plan a special day for yourself instead!  Go get a mani-pedi, get your hair done, go out drinking with friends, buy yourself something nice, whatever YOU want to do!

So don’t worry about splurging a little on yourself this Valentine’s day, show yourself that you care!

Your relationship with yourself is definitely worthy of celebration, so here are gift ideas to help you do just that.

Keep an eye on this post as we will add more products/giveaways in the coming days.

  1. Rosanne Robinson

    Valentine’s Day means spending the day with my best friend & husband of 43+ years. We go out for a nice relaxing dinner & enjoy a night cap together after we get home

  2. jan

    I must admit that we do not do much for Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t diminish how important we are to one another.

  3. Cassandra Gale

    Everything is always about family our children are our world so it’s a day celebrated with them.

  4. Vivian Tsang

    Valentines means show love to family and friends!!

  5. Valentines to me means a relaxing evening with the love of my life of 38yrs. When I do not have to cook.

  6. Jen v.

    We don’t really do a lot to celebrate Valentine’s Day, usually just ordering in for dinner.

  7. joy

    we don’t go out of our way to celebrate Valentine’s Day — I think it is a fun holiday for kids to exchange cards, but otherwise it is just another commercial holiday for spending money — we should tell our loved ones we love them every day, not just on Valentine’s Day

  8. nicky

    To me, Valentine’s Day is a reminder to tell hubby I love him. We usually do dinner at home because eating out is so expensive (and so busy on Valentine’s Day!)

  9. Heather Swanson

    Valentine’s Day means spending the day with my boyfriend,also it’s my daughter’s & son-in-laws anniversary!!

  10. Florence Cochrane

    Valentine’s Day means to me is a time for a nice supper and a bottle of wine with hubby. Thank you and Vichy for the nice giveaway.


    Valentines day is a good day to plan a special day to get hair done and spend time at the spa.


    Valentine’s Day is special, it was my first real date with my now husband. I was a widow at the time and very nervous about “dating” at my age.

  13. Before I had my daughter, Valentine meant for me the day for lovers only. Since I have her in my life, she used to make me card for Valentine and said to me that it’s the day for the people you really love so that was it for me now Valentine is for people I really Love !

  14. Lori JB

    Valentines for me is a day to remind the important people in my life what they mean to me.

  15. louise

    usually hubby and I will go out for dinner. I will buy him a little something and he does the same. thank you Vichy for the awesome products which I have used many times

  16. wendy hutton

    being single valentines means nothing to me, but the memory I had was my ex always bought me those red cinnamon heart candies-WHICH I WAS HIGHLY ALLERGIC TO lol and I told him that year after year

  17. Darlene Demell

    For us, Valentine’s Day is really no big deal. We tell each other we love each other many times a day and after 40 years of marriage its still as strong as when we married. Its a time for us to spend with each other and our family.

  18. Jonnie

    Valentine’s Day doesn’t hold a lot of meaning for me. My husband and I stopped celebrating about 5 years into our relationship. I always get the kids a treat though and I love shopping the after-Valentine’s chocolate sales!

  19. ivy pluchinsky

    To me its just another day. You should celebrate your significant other all the time, not just on Valentines Day.

  20. Melinda

    Valentine’s Day is a day I express my love and gratitude for the special people in my life. I love Vichy products, thanks for this opportunity to win this great prize package!

  21. Larker

    Valentine’s Day includes a visit to Purdy’s for chocolate.

  22. DebP

    We celebrate Valentine*s Day a day or two after the 14th. It*s easier to get a good table in a restaurant, and it*s quieter and more relaxing. Thank you for the Vichy products – they*ve become my go-to for skin care.

  23. Julie F

    We got engaged 43 years ago on Valentines so it is a pretty special day to us!

  24. Josee b

  25. Maritess

    Thank you to Vichy for sponsoring this giveaway. Valentines Day is a day to express our love to the people we care without being so cheeky about it.

  26. Maritess

    I have dry skin and this can help me moisturize my skin and keep hydrated through the day.

    Thanks Vichy Canada for the giveaway

  32. Wendy Jensen

    What Valentine’s Day means to me is a special day for my husband and I to celebrate our love for each other. Sometimes one gets too busy throughout the year and this is a great chance to show it.

  33. Dana Miller

    Valentine’s means the world to me. I waited until almost 40 to have my baby and she arrived just days after Valentine’s day. She is my greatest gift and blessing. Thank you to Vichy Canada for these amazing skin care products. I could use some TLC!

  34. Debbie White Beattie

    We don’t actually celebrate Valentines day because we think it’s just a big money grab but we do like to have a nice meal together on Valentines day.
    Thanks for the great giveaway Vichy !

  35. We don’t normally celebrate Valentine’s Day, but we usually go out to eat somewhere. This year will be a special one , however, as we are expecting our first child together on Feb. 5th!

  36. Caroline Lozinski

    34 Valentines Days together and my husband and I still get each other a little something! It’s a day for us not for the whole family 🙂

  37. Mandy

    Valentines Day means an excuse for date night with the hubby and remembering to spend quality time with just us.

  38. I see Valentine’s Day as a way to show the special people in my life how much I truly love them. It’s a day that I wear my heart on my sleeve and I make sure and not only tell them how much I love them but I give them gifts and cards and lots of hugs and kisses. My husband and I always feel romantic on this day and I cannot express how thankful I am that we love have each other as soul mates.

  39. Judy

    Thank you Vichy for the great giveaway! My husband has been recovering from a heart attack and stage four rectal cancer for the last three years. We are trying to appreciate everyday as if it’s a holiday like Valentines Day,Christmas…etc and trying to ignore the commercial part of holidays. This is an ideal prize for me. I’ve aged tremendously since he took ill. Good Luck to everyone!

  40. Diana Powell

    I’m a HUGE fan of VICHY skincare products so thank you so much for sponsoring this post !! I like to get everyone in my household a little something for Valentine’s day . Just to let them know I love and appreciate them . But we skip the crowds and always make a nice dinner at home.

  41. Treen Goodwin

    Valentines Day means to spend it with your amazing hubby and to enjoy a romantic day together 🙂

  44. Alayne Langford

    Valentine’s Day is a day for my husband and I to take time to reflect on the past 32 years plus, and to be grateful for our 5 children and 3 grandchildren! Thank you Vichy Canada!

  45. SweetPanda

  48. Elizabeth Matthiesen

    Valentine’s Day means nothing special to me, I’m a firm believer in that you should let the people you love know that every day and not just on one day of the year. A huge thank you to Vichy for sponsoring this great giveaway.

  49. Tava

    Cinnamon Hearts – sure love is on the list of things Valentines Day means to me but really if one could survive on Cinnamon Hearts then my dietary needs would be met.

  50. erin n

  58. Tara Betterley

    When I was younger, I felt like we were celebrating our young love. Now, it is more about just spending the time with my family and enjoy our company..
