If like me your skin get's those days when it's just gone to crap and you need a speedy boost then I may have just found your skin lifeline. M&S have seriously upped their game in the beauty department and are stocking a really good range of skincare brands that you might not find everywhere else. Skyn Iceland is a brand I'd heard about because of their popular eye pads and so when I saw this kit for €24.00 I ran to the till and straight home to test drive the set.
I love the packaging. Yes I'm a marketers dream, but really, the packaging is really clever and quirky. The kit itself contains an eye relief cream in the form of a pen (love this), a cooling daily lotion, a face mist, and 2 sets of eye pads. So after giving my face a good clean I slapped everything on and then lay down with the eye masks to let them work their magic. The result? I nearly didn't recognize my skin after. This stuff is amazing. My skin was dull, grey, tired, blotchy, and dehydrated due to burning the candle at both ends and this stuff really kicked my skins arse. My skin looked rested and fresh and bloody great to be honest.
What I also love about this kit is that the stuff lasts ages and it's travel size so when I popped to London for a quick weekend, the eye pen and face mist were in my bag helping my eyes and face get over the red eye flight. Right enough babbling. I like this stuff, a lot. You will too.

I've been mixing up my skin care regime lately and finding lovely products that don't break the bank and that really really work. REN is a brand that's all about being clean and so they use plant and mineral active ingredients, so no nasties, lovely. The cleanser itself is lovely and creamy, which I was surprised by as it's branded a clay cleanser. It gives you a nice deep clean, without that horrible squeakiness after and leaves the skin super soft. The bottle itself is quite large and you can actually see how much product is left thanks to the clever packaging. My skin has been looking pretty good since I started using this, it's not drying, but manages to dry up imperfections, while keeping the skin soft and smooth. A really good cleanser for anyone with blemish prone skin. Also a little goes a long way. The pump can dispense a lot of the product so go easy.
Ren Clarifying Clay Cleanser €20.00
Stocked in Arnotts, Space NK, and selected pharmacies.
