M&S Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream Review

The UK skincare market is price conscious and focused on feel-good textures. At times, the 'feel' can only be achieved by adding non-natural, texture forming ingredients within the manufacturing process. There is nothing wrong with that but the feel of the product does not ensure that it contains only ingredients that benefit the skin. What the skin needs is products made by companies that prioritise the quality of ingredients above other factors [e.g. Neal's Yard Remedies], yet we must recognise that focus may lead to a compromise on the 'feel' of the product.  The secret is to blend the best quality ingredients to both optimise your skin condition and achieve great "skin feel". I would always encourage you to read the ingredient list. I want to refer back to India Knights column on Sunday [15.1.2017] musing about the M&S Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream, £22 [50 ml]. So let's have a look together: M&S use comforting words like intuitive, luxurious, created with expertise, very best of formula.. "Part of the luxurious formula absolute skin care solutions range which features proven active ingredients to fight 10 signs of ageing.

The Strike Oil article on 1st January caught my eye.  Introducing the world of facials that can make an actual, immediate and noticeable difference to your appearance and improve your complexion overtime to the general public is a great message. Only one in four women in Britain has a regular facial, and usually not by a highly trained facialist. Also highlighting the expertise of London-based celebrity facialists, with magic hands and a range of tools from massage, peels to resurfacing and stimulating devices is fabulous. As India notes, super-facialists aren't cheap and have waiting lists. But not every super-facialist lives in London, there are a handfull living outside of the capital who also bring "power facials" and "face gym" hands-on skills and expertise; East Yorkshire, in my case.  Glowing, healthy skin requires more than a monthly facial, it is an at-home routine. Super-facialists have their own range of products that you can buy to use at home; they may not be cheap, but they work. India has faith in their expertise and likes the pared-down simplicity of Amanda Lacey's range.
