Before I start, I have to mention how amazing M&S’ beauty halls are now. The last time I visited, there were a few new brands in but this time I was blown away at the selection available: Nuxe, Emma Hardie, Pixi, REN, Stila…it’s my new go-to place for beauty products.
However, as well as stocking some great brands, I have been hearing good things about M&S’ own-brand beauty so I picked up a couple of items to try out.
First up, a Cleansing Face Wash from the Formula Daily Care range. This is for sensitive skin and really does feel gentle to use. I like to have a face wash in the shower to help wake me up in the morning. This is a nice enough product but not really ground-breaking to make me have to repurchase it.
Next, I noticed this body mist near the till reduced…and it doesn’t take a genius to realise why!!! Despite the name, I love this scent. I used to wear it years ago so when I saw it, I had to buy it again. It is so fresh and light and I think the ombre packaging is really pretty too.
Finally, I am such a convert to face oils and serums now and spend more on them than I do on a good moisturiser. My Holy Grail facial oils are the Kiehl’s ones but I love testing out others. This Overnight Recovery Elixir is actually designed for more mature skin but I am starting to notice changes in my skin as I hit my thirties. This is a gel-like formula and you only need a few drops from the pipette (hands up if you love dispensing oils and serums from a pipette!) This absorbs quickly and feels lovely and refreshing on the skin. It contains hyaluronic acid which is known for hydrating skin and its anti-aging properties. Sadly, I think this product is being discontinued now but you may be able to grab one in-store.
