I’ve taken the weekend off and am handing over to grooming guru Phil at the Mirror Reality blog – it’s a great read, and a must-read if skincare is your thing.

Phil test-drives the products he reviews and knows his skincare brands inside out. In fact it’s just as well we don’t share a house because we’d be raiding each other’s bathroom cabinets.  Coincidentally, I just bought Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm (£10, in the pic) at M&S Your Beauty in Kensington High Street and am liking (licking?) it a lot. It’s much denser than most other lip balms, stays on, is ultra-protective,  even works as a lipstick base and tastes slightly grapefruity.

The new Your Beauty zones are being rolled out across M&S stores nationwide, including recent openings at Westfield London and Stratford. If you haven’t been in yet, prepare to be surprised by brands like Murad, Perlier, Skyn Iceland, Australian Native Botanicals, Les Senteurs Gourmandes and the “Medicosmetique” brand Laboratoires Filorga from France, to name a handful. Even better, not one of the beauty brands M&S carries is tested on animals.
