I have to admit, I never thought I’d be writing a rave review Marks and Spencer’s beauty offerings. Until recently, if you’d have mentioned Marks and Spencer and beauty in the same sentence to me, a rose scented bath set would have been the first thing I thought of. I had seen the shiny, new beauty hall on previous visits but had never looked around properly, but the other night, I did just that.
I was initially intrigued by their foundations, as the lightest shade looked like a good match for my skin tone. I started talking about the range to the beauty consultant, Kim, and before I knew it, my coat was off and I was making myself comfortable on a stool. Kim started by getting to know my skin by asking about my particular concerns and everyday skincare regime. I have ‘problem’ skin and she recommended that I consider changing my skin care routine to tackle the issues I was hoping the foundation would cover.
Her suggestions couldn’t have come at a better time. After recently watching Meg’s video on budget skincare, I’ve wanted to become more dedicated to using all natural products. REN and Skyn Iceland were the brands that Kim selected for me and she created a routine tailored to my skin’s (very demanding) needs!
