The Beauty Beat: 2/6-2/12

It’s time to start thinking about the big V, Valentine’s Day. Seize the day of love with Crabtree & Evelyn products, Aquanox spa treatments and Kitty Kat Pole Dancing classes.

BEAUTY: Spruce up for your Valentine with Crabtree & Evelyn’s new Citron line. It’s a dose of C with a splash of honey and coriander in the form of bath & shower gels, body bars, scrubs, lotions and soufflés. A warm tub with a capful of Citron Skin Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel ($18) combined with a Skin Indulging Body Souffle's ($28) lemon and orange-infused shea butter massage make for the perfect February 14th in. GET IT: Aventura Mall, 19575 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura; 305.932.2485.   

SPA: Forget that whole “it’s better to give than to receive thing” and simultaneously indulge your sweetheart and yourself with a V Day treat from Aquanox Spa’s couples treatments. Each comes with libations and chocolate treats and promises to hit the spot. Opt for Just the Two of Us ($260/50 minutes, $370/80 minutes in spa, $295/50, $405/80 minutes in private beach cabana), a customized side-by-side massage. Or, splurge on the Ultimate Couples Retreat ($450/120 minutes) with full-body customized massage and dual facial. Both are available throughout the month of February, so you can keep that loving feeling alive well after the 14th. GET IT: 18001 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach; 305.692.5730.

GYM: Wondering how to heat things up this Valentine’s Day? Forget lingerie and massage oil.

Invite your lover to watch you work the pole as a private dancer with an introductory lesson from instructor Cynthia Muniz. Lessons start at $25 with studio rentals at $150 an hour. Toss in a box of chocolates and a bottle of champagne, and we think this will be a Valentine’s Day your beau will remember for ever. And ever. Or, if you’re the type who knows exactly where Cupid can stick that arrow, check out the Anti-Valentine’s Day Vixen Special. It’s a perfect get together for all your singles friends to strut their stuff and leave the boys drooling. GET IT: Available from Friday, February 11 through Monday, February 14. 3449 N.E.
