The Best of the Marks and Spencer's beauty stash


When Marks and Spencer's started to stock brands like Ren and Nuxe, it's safe to say I got a little excited! For those of you who may not have ventured into their beauty hall I'm going to share with you my top picks so you get an idea of what to look out for!

First of all, having a place that stocked Ren in my town was kind of a big deal for a skincare lover like myself. I put off buying the Ren 1 Minute Facial (£32.00, 75ml) but it kept calling my name and the temptation was too good to beat. If you are in need of quick skin fix then this is your guy! It contains little exfoliating beads which you massage into your skin which release vitamin C which helps rejuvenate the skin and make it feel very soft.
Another skincare find is the Galmglow Youthmud Mask (£49.50, 50ml). This definitely isn't the cheapest of masks but it does a very good job at detoxifying the skin. This is one those masks where after 5 minutes trying to smile and talk are just off the cards, but that does mean its pulling out all the impurities, so I guess its not all bad! Marks and Spencers have just started to stock Glamglow so if you haven't tried the brand before due to the fact its hard to get hold of, you no longer have to worry about that.
Nuxe is anther brand which I was excited to have a little snoop around. The Reve de Miel Lip Balm (£9.50, 15g) has to be my favourite balm I've tried. This can also double up as a lip mask if you're having a extra dry lip day, which happens more than you may like in the winter. It's a beautiful thick consistency which I tend to apply before bed so it can work its magic overnight. I also have this in the stick form which is perfect for popping in your bag.

As for makeup, Stila is definitely a brand I would check out. Their Convertible Colours (£16.00, 4.25g) are lovely, especially as spring is soon approaching. I have the shade Gerbera which is a beautiful light pink. I definitely want to pick up a couple more of these, and they can also be applied in the lips which is great if you're trying to downsize your makeup bag!

  1. I was actually in M&S shopping for some thermals the other day and I saw their wide range of beauty products. I was happy to see REN :) The mask sounds really good and I'm excited to give it a try~

    I usually see Glamglow stocked up in Topshop oxford street. I live a bit away so its difficult to get there, but M&S is local I guess.

  4. 6 months ago I would never have thought to go to M&S for beauty products, but since seeing it mentioned on many blogs, I have actually started roaming the beauty section and I have been so impressed with the range and brand quality!
