M&S Beauty Event Gift With Purchase

Till 11th September, M&S are hosting a Beauty Discovery Event where there are tonnes of Gift's With Purchase offers when you buy one or more products from a certain brand. Have a look at the complete list here.

I have Crabtree & Evelyn's Hand Therapy Floral Set worth £12 and Advanced Formula 1 Minute Facial worth £15 to show you guys which are both GWP's. I am a huge sucker for gifts with purchase and always admired the ones Estee Lauder too. What I like is relevant products, i.e. give me skincare GWP if I am buying skincare as well as generous sizes. Both of which M&S seems to have ticked off my list brilliantly.

The 1 Minute Facial is a creamy exfoliator and also a mask which should be left on the skin for a minute for it to work effectively. Now I don't get on very well with exfoliators because to my skin they only scratch rather than exfoliate. But this baby is BEAUTIFUL! It's so creamy and the granules and are not abrasive at all. It all works so well in symmetry and I can feel it buffing and polishing my skin. I personally like to keep massaging it in circular motions for a minute until it's on the skin but you can leave it as it is before washing it off with warm water. My skin felt super smooth and soft after use and very hydrated. I'm meant to use it twice a week but I can't stop seriously! I can totally see why it's out of stock on their website. Please bookmark and get it when it's back in stock.

I kept staring at this gift box by Crabtree & Evelyn until I had to push myself to ruin the pretty tubes and squeeze some cream out of it. It looks so beautiful, perfect for those who like florals and vintage inspired patterns. The tin tubes have such a retro look and feel to them don't they? The hand creams smell gorgeous albeit not overpowering. Just a subtle hint of fragrance and my favourite is Rosewater without doubt. They sink into the skin and quite unusually leave skin matte and velvety soft. If you can't stand overtly hydrating hand creams that leave a glossy residue, give this a try.

Will you be getting anything from M&S Beauty? They have the most unique, niche and good quality brands compared to your usual John Lewis and House of Fraser. I need to give the website a proper browse now. Off I go.
