5 wonder beauty products mums on-the-go need to pick up in M&S

Amy Nolan

Mums rejoice, M&S stock some beauty brands that are fast and effective…One might even help you sleep better!

You might not know it, but Marks and Spencer stock some amazing makeup and skincare brands that you’d typically have to buy online. From mid to high priced skincare brands such as Pixi, Alpha H and Emma Hardie to makeup brands like Stila, the high street chain has got a myriad of goodies that can help busy mums get some all-important TLC back into your beauty regime without being too time-consuming.

Pixi Glow Tonic – €23.50 (250ml), €15 (100ml)

You must have been living under a rock to have missed this cult product, but Pixi’s iconic Glow Tonic can be picked up in your local M&S. This wonder product, a personal fave of mine for years, is an exfoliating toner that is less abrasive on the skin than more traditional exfoliators with bead-like particles.

It improves skin’s tone and texture and helps give you that elusive glow. With a combination of both natural ingredients and five percent glycolic acid, this product seriously makes a difference to your skin.

This one could be a staple for tired mamas.

Alpha-H Liquid Gold 24 Hour Moisture Repair – €70 (50ml)

If you’re a skincare aficionado, you’ll have heard of the brand Alpha-H and their award-winning Liquid Gold range.

The luxury brand is stocked in M&S and if you’ve got the budget to afford the pretty hefty price tag, you can pick up the brand’s signature 24 Hour Moisture Repair, a seriously scientific based product that, amongst other beneficial ingredients, contains flecks of 24 Carat Gold to help firm and brighten the skin.

Emma Hardie Moringa Balm – €13.50 (15ml)

Cleansing balms are the quickest and easiest ways to remove makeup and have this one will leave your skin feeling silky smooth. It can also double as an overnight hydrating mask for dry skin types, so more bang for your buck.

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray – €45 (250ml)

This is a beautiful product that could help you achieve a much better night’s sleep.

If like me, you struggle to fall asleep, a liberal spritz of this gem over your bed linen might help you catch some elusive z’s. It’s a calming blend of essential oils like lavender and chamomile and, as research has shown that establishing a good bedtime routine will set you up for a better sleep, this could be a great new addition to your life.

We reckon it must have been created specifically for mums…

Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation – €47 (30ml)

This is a beautiful foundation that builds to a medium coverage that looks natural and enhances skin’s luminosity. It is available in ten different shades and adds a lovely glow to the skin. If you prefer more of a matte finish, Stila also does its Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer, a two-in-one product also available in Marks. It’s also a cruelty-free brand.

So there you have it, your round-up of the best in beauty Marks has to offer. Mamas, grab a little me-time and re-charge before the next toddler meltdown!
