M&S never disappoints. Whether it's Holly Willoughby-approved fashion or quality food, the retailer has cemented itself as a one-stop shop for all our Winter must-haves. And when it comes to beauty, M&S have us (more than) fully covered on that front, too.
Carrying over 50 brands spanning all budgets – from purse-friendly to mid-range – M&S' beauty department is just as well-stocked as you'd expect. (Making us all the more excited for the Marks & Spencer Black Friday deals.)
With big name brands including Prai, Murad, PIXI, Neal's Yard and L’Occitane appearing alongside M&S' own-label beauty goodies, the temptation to fill your basket with face creams every time you pop in for a pint of milk is all too tempting.
So when M&S unveiled to Grazia their top 10 bestselling beauty products right now, we couldn't wait to see which of our favourites everyone else is loving, too. And from cleansing balms to toners, day creams and hand washes, it's clear that as a nation, we've got great beauty taste.
In fact, stats have revealed that 2020 was the year we really got our skincare regime in order, with M&S reporting a 160% spike in skincare sales between April and June this year compared to last year. Online body product sales, meanwhile, were up by more than 800%.
So just what is everyone buying?
Here are the top 10 bestselling beauty products at M&S right now. How many of your favourites made the list?
The top 10 bestselling beauty products at M&S
Prai Ageless Throat & Décolletage Crème (50ml)
£25 | Marks & Spencer
The number one bestselling beauty product at M&S, the Prai Ageless Throat & Décolletage Crème is something of a wonder product when it comes to targeting fine lines and wrinkles in the oft-forgotten neck and throat area. The cream uses a unique lifting technology to tighten and smooth the area – which is prone to showing premature signs of ageing. View now at M&S.
Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream
£23 | Marks & Spencer
Boasting hundreds of 5-star rave reviews, it doesn't come as a surprise that this rich night cream is one of M&S' bestsellers. Enriched with sodium hyaluronate – a derivate of hyaluronic acid – and glycerin, the lovely cream hydrates and smooths skin while you sleep. View now at M&S.
Pure Super Hydrate Day Cream SPF15
£16 | Marks & Spencer
We reckon this natural, vegan cream is a winter skin saviour. It might be lightweight, but the lovely day cream is packed full of fatty acids to lock in moisture, and soothe dry, irritated skin. View now at M&S.
Formula Wake Up and Glow Overnight Serum
£20 | Marks & Spencer
If there's one thing our skin is seriously lacking in these cold, winter months, it's glow. Luckily M&S' Formula range has the perfect solution in the form of this concentrated Vitamin C serum. Apply a few pumps to skin after cleansing and before moisturising for your most radiant look yet. View now at M&S.
Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm with Cleansing Cloth
£47 | Marks & Spencer
This beauty industry-favourite cleansing balm melts away makeup and impurities, while soothing and balancing the skin with its vitamin e and essential oils-enriched formula. Complete with a luxuriously-soft cleansing cloth, this one is top of our Christmas wish list. View now at M&S.
PIXI Glow Tonic
£18 | Marks & Spencer
We aren't surprised that this cult classic made the top 10 list. PIXI's legendary Glow Tonic is formulated with 5% glycolic acid to exfoliate dead skin cells for a brighter, more radiant complexion. View now at M&S.
Pure Natural Radiance Day Cream SPF 15
£16 | Marks & Spencer
Not only does this illuminating day cream contain an all-important SPF, it protects skin from daily irritants like pollution with its echinacea and peptides-packed formula. View now at M&S.
Apothecary Calm Hand Wash
£5 | Marks & Spencer
One of the best Aesop dupes we ever did see, this chic Apothecary hand wash is our new bathroom must-have. Hold on to the gorgeous bottle when you're finished and use the refill pouches to top it up. View now at M&S.
The Fragrance Collection Seasalt & Freesia Eau de Toilette
£12.50 | Marks & Spencer
Looking for a fresh, everyday fragrance that doesn't break the bank? Look no further. With notes of crisp pear, refreshing freesia and sea salt, this one brings to mind long, summer days. View now at M&S.
Apothecary Calm Hand Lotion
£5 | Marks & Spencer
Another chic Aesop dupe that would spruce up any sink. Delicately scented with lavender and sweet orange, the nourishing hand wash would make a lovely Christmas gift. View now at Marks & Spencer.
