I always enjoy a trip to the Sprucefield M&S because they have the best beauty selection with loads of cruelty free options.
Last month when I went in for the Studio 10 demo with Patsy Kensit the girls were kind enough to send me away with some more goodies so this haul review is 100% gifted but the opinions are my own. I’ve had a good old month trying to make time to try all the goodies in here along with my usual stash of incoming products and the results are in!
REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial (£33 for 75ml)
First up were the samples of the REN 1 minute face mask. This mask is activated with water after you apply it. The purpose of this mask is to tighten the skin, fight the signs of aging and effects of pollution. It does this with Vitamin C, Boswellic Acid and Magnesium for a boost to your skins glow.
With it only taking a minute, it really is the perfect mask for anyone short of time but in need of a mini pamper session. I am pleased to say I did notice a positive effect on the skin using these but I wasn’t a big fan of the smell and dare I say acidic taste that was left on my lips after washing the mask off.
Rodial Stemcell Magic Gel (£55 for 50ml)
I am a huge fan of Rodial as a brand and this product was a lovely one to use. You can use the Stemcell Magic Gel as a night mask or an intensive treatment during the day. The gel hydrates, tightens and tones the skin while also protecting against pollution (and if you weren’t aware, pollution plays a major part in our ageing). It contains “Pronalen™ Bio-Protect complex and PhytoCellTech™ Alp Rose stem cell technology work towards maintaining the skin’s moisture balance”. The product has a really silky feel when applied to the skin which I loved and the smell is very gentle and pleasent too.
Pure Super Grape Day Cream (£15 for 50ml)
The Pure Super Grape Day Cream comes with an SPF 15 which is always a good bonus. It hydrates the skin with 95% natural ingredients and avoids synthetic colours, fragrances and parabens. It is made with a complex of echinacea, peptides and an exclusive source of resveratrol which combined help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, hydrate and protect the skin. This product feels non greasy when I apply it to my skin and hydrates well. Great value for the price.
Rosie for Autograph Eau de Parfum (£14 for 30ml)
This is a really lovely fragrance if you are a fan of floral and rose scents. It is part of the exclusive range with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The fragrance lasts well on the skin like any of the other perfumes I have tried by M&S. I love that they have a good range of fragrances to pick from and that they are all cruelty free. So chuffed they popped two of this into my goodie bag so I can keep one in my handbag and one in the car.
Overall this was a great goodie bag and it really highlights a small portion of the wonderful range available in Marks and Spencers. You may not find all these products in your local store as some are only kept in larger stores with a dedicated beauty department but you can 100% order them online for free pick up in your local store.
Do you have any favorites you have spotted in M&S recently?
