First Taste of Marks & Spencer

Here’s a little snapshot of my dressing table at 6 am this morning – I’m sure everyone in my house really appreciated me clicking and flashing away at the time. Oops. But there was a reason behind my early morn photo shoot as I wanted to quickly get a snap of my newest purchase before it got all dirty. For a while I’d been contemplating a purchase of some M&S cosmetics so I finally went in on last Wednesday and was served by a lovely lady on the cosmetics section who talked me through all their bits and bobs and I ended up walking away with 1 thing nicely packaged up in a M&S’ bag…

Polish – a product that you’ve probably heard me go on about 165 times. In fact it’s a product that I could quite easily write about until the cows come home! I love polishes; the smooth consistency, creamy and wearable colours and the cute bottles, building a collection of them seems quite appealing to me. And boy have I been building a collection and a half – I nearly have a small army of them!

I think I may have found my perfect every day SPF product. When I was in Lifestyle I got talking to the Neutrogena sales assistant about the Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50 and was in love with it before I even tried it. And then when I tried it, I loved it even more!
