Fiery Aries loves Valentine’s Day. She’s always in the mood for love and nothing makes her feel sexier than dressing up and celebrating romance in style! A flirty dress, killer shoes and visit to the hairdresser have always been musts, but this year she’s skipping the salon. Her new secret weapon: Infiniti Pro by Conair Curl Secret. This deceptively simple device automatically draws sections into a curling chamber, heats it from all sides for a few seconds and beeps when it’s created the perfect, long-lasting curl. In no time, she’s got a head full of soft, bouncy, sexy hair that screams bombshell! Bring your tresses to life at mass and specialty retailers and drugstores nationwide, or visit www.curlsecret.com .

Lighthearted Taurus loves everything corny about Valentine’s Day. The sillier the sentiment, the better! Anything that combines that kind of sweetness with actual sugar makes her heart swoon, so Peeps® marshmallow treats are this year’s objects of her affection. With a winkily romantic collection featuring everything from heart-shaped classic flavors to chocolate dipped, cherry flavored decadence, her taste buds (and sense of humor) never stood a chance. Find your own yummy spell to fall under at grocery and drug stores nationwide, PEEPS & Company® retail stores or at www.marshmallowpeeps.com.

Complex Gemini spends most of her time balancing dual romantic natures. She’s a sparkling conversationalist who loves to be wined, dined and treated like a lady. She’s also a saucy minx who would much rather show her affection than waste time talking about it. The minx wins out this Valentine’s Day, so the party stays at home and her fancy dress is the On Call Sexy Nurse Costume from MrCostumes.com! This naughty little get-up is a fun, flirty way to keep her patient … ahem, date … begging for mercy. Find your racy alter ego at www.mrcostumes.com.

Delicate Cancer lives through her senses. If her sweater is itchy, every aspect of her day will be cringe-worthy. If she sees a kitten playing, the warm fuzzies will last all day. On Valentine’s Day, she needs something to rev up her confidence and keep it going from morning to night! For a double hit of hotness, Decadence Hair Fragrance from SHOW Beauty has her covered. A light, lush mist of rose water with hints of coconut milk, caramel, almond butter, Madagascan vanilla, patchouli and soft white musk, her hair smells amazing while jojoba oil, vitamin E, aloe vera and Ultracas G20 keep it wildly caressable. One flick of that mane and everybody will fall in love … herself included! Render your hair irresistible at www.showbeauty.com.

Confident Leo takes pride in her appearance, often going to great lengths to ensure that she’s practically perfect from every angle. Those lengths often involve pain and giant wads of cash, so she’s got to be sure that the finished product is displayed in the best possible way. For Valentine’s Day, she ensures this by inviting her date to her home for the evening and lighting the whole place with Mood Passion™ romantic red light bulbs from Mood-Factory! This fun, flirty line of flattering bulbs features compact fluorescent, flood, porch and incandescent styles in colors proven to do everything from tweaking your creativity to rendering you flat-out irresistible. Choose your outlook-brightening weapons at Lowe’s Home Improvement stores nationwide.

Intellectual Virgo doesn’t think of herself as particularly romantic. Gifts of flowers and candy are lost on her, and she finds giving them just as pointless. When it’s time to think of gifts for her Valentine (not that she’d ever refer to them as one), items far more meaningful come to mind. Mosaic by Mixbook is a great way to create something unique and personal. Using their app on any Apple or Android device, she can use photos of memorable times to create gorgeous photo books and have them delivered right to her door within days. Click on over to www.heymosaic.com for details.

Easygoing Libra is the glass-half-full lady of the zodiac. Nothing ever shakes her positive outlook, and her killer smile gets a lot of attention. As Valentine’s Day approaches, she elevates it to megawatt status with the Super Booster Teeth Whitening Pen from Whitening Lightning. Just a quick, easy application before bed freshens her breath, kills bacteria and brightens her teeth 7-10 shades in 14 days without slimy strips or clunky trays. The result: a line of suitors that will keep her busy all year long! Paint your way to pearly perfection at www.whiteninglightning.com.

Sensual Scorpio lives for decadence and fantasy. Even when she’s busy conquering the world, her mind tends to wander to passionate places. On Valentine’s Day, it’s time for those dreams to become reality. Every detail of her romantic encounter is meticulously chosen, including Fifty Shades of Grey Red Satin and White Silk wines. Created by Shades author E.L. James, each of these indulgent blends is designed to be an extension of the Fifty Shades Trilogy. If it works for Christian, it’ll work for her and her date … if he knows what’s good for him. Find out where to drive your taste buds wild at www.fiftyshadeswine.com.

Playful Sagittarius loves finding ways to add whimsy to her world. Everything should make her smile, or what’s the point? Celebrating Valentine’s Day in all its heart-shaped, silly glory is one of her favorite things, and so is sharing the fun with her friends. When her favorite singles come over to play, they’re greeted with red roses, pink cocktails and a dazzling array of decadent edibles served on Valentine Tidbit Plates from Papyrus. Each heart-shaped ceramic plate in this set of four has a winky little message like “be mine” and “I quite like you”. Sweeten up your nibbling at Papyrus shops and www.papyrus.com.

Sensible Capricorn isn’t sure how she feels about Valentine’s Day. Her inner girly girl loves the idea of glamming up and hitting the town with a hot date! Her practical side can’t help feeling like it’s all a bit silly. Why go to the trouble of applying loads of makeup when she’ll only have to spend ages removing it all a few hours later? Her girly side’s solution: the Spa Sonic Skin Care System! Its dermal penetrating action removes everything from her skin that doesn’t belong, leaving it squeaky clean and primed for her favorite moisturizer. It also comes with attachments designed to pamper her entire body from head to toe. Keep your epidermis pristine at www.myspasonic.com.

Inventive Aquarius loves to experiment with her looks. Whether it’s sexy new makeup techniques or the hottest designer clothes, she’s always looking for her next big change.
