Buy it now: Panic shopping at M&S Your Beauty


I’m sure you have last minute gift guides coming out of your ears but I couldn’t not share these from Marks & Spencer.

While opinion may still be divided on its fashion offer (but I’ve seen Spring and I’m impressed), I think we can all agree that they’ve got the beauty buy just right. If you’re doing your Christmas food shop at M&S, head straight for the Your Beauty department and nab one (or all of these) goodies along with your mince pies and brandy cream…

DOWNTON ABBEY BATH SET TRIO – A genius move from M&S, the Downton Abbey licenced line taps into the national (and international) obsession with Downton. This is so nicely designed and easily crosses the age barriers. (Plus it’s reduced to £4.25)
JURLIQUE HAND CARE MINIATURE ESSENTIALS SET – I’m still looking for that perfect hand cream and discovered recently that Jurlique is a bit of a holy grail product for many people. This set of mini tubes is a great buy for that person who keeps hand cream in the office, handbag, car, kitchen etc…

REN GIFT SETS – Who doesn’t love REN? It’s one of the best sellers at M&S and a no-brainer for scooping up as emergency gifts for unexpected Christmas visitors. Look out for these jolly festive bargain boxes; The Rose Duo Gift Set (containing Moroccan Rose Otto body wash and Moroccan Rose Otto body lotion) is now down to £18 (from £36)…

EMMA BRIDGEWATER TEA & ORANGES SCENTED CANDLE – I’ve saved the best for last. I  spent a good five minutes inhaling this Emma Bridgewater Tea & Oranges candle (£18) at the M&S beauty press day. A feelgood mix of zesty orange and comforting tea, the packaging is rather cheering as well. A very clever collab (the range is huge), it’s another of M&S’s most popular lines and affordable too…

*Footnote: I wish sites like M&S would make their pictures bigger and easier for us bloggers to save from the site. They’d get far more coverage!
