In praise of the Marks & Spencer Beauty Hall, the happiest place on Earth

Take all our money,

not turning into an M&S mom just yet

A post shared by natalia (@maybenat) on

IF YOU’RE A beauty nerd, you’ll know that there are few places more inviting than the Marks & Spencer Beauty Hall.

In fact, we would wager it’s a lot of people’s Happy Place™.

For one thing, it’s an oasis of calm compared to other shops

It’s compact and usually not too busy, meaning you can browse and daydream about double cleansing in peace.

It makes you want to take better care of your skin.

Perhaps it’s the effect of being surrounded by balms, cleansers, smelly oils and moisturisers, but just being there makes you want to be a Woman With A Skincare Regime.

It carries cult brands that you can’t get anywhere else.

It’s your one-stop shop for revered skincare and beauty brands like Pixi, Ren, Nuxe, Alpha H, Emma Hardie and Stila.

The thrill when you find a sought after item like, say, Pixi Glow Tonic is unparalleled

Like winning the beauty lottery.

Even better? Getting to notify your gals-only WhatsApp group about the deadly deal you saw in M&S on your lunch break


Did we mention their gift sets are top-notch?

You’re still green with envy at everyone who managed to get their mitts on an M&S Advent Calendar last year.

Sure, it might leave a dent in your bank account…

“Did I really just spend €27 on an Icelandic hydration mask?”

But there’s nowhere like it to make you feel like a Professional Adult Woman Who Never Sleeps In Her Makeup (Except When Really Drunk And Sleepy, Okay)
