Marks & Spencer is not only a high-street fashion hero, quality grocery provider and all-around retail gem, but it’s here to help with our skincare woes too. That’s right, the retail giant has launched a brand new anti-ageing skincare range fuelled by none other than brightening hero, vitamin C.
The Wild Rose Vitamin C collection from Greek beauty brand Korres (just one of the external lines M&S sells in its well-stocked beauty halls), the range promises to transform your skin in just one week thanks to the powerful mix of ingredients.
Vitamin C is already renowned as a powerful remedy for your immune system, fighting off a cough, cold or a flu. But it’s becoming increasingly well known that it’s also amazing for the skin – it can protect against UVA and UVB damage, reduce hyperpigmentation and improve the appearance of sun damage.
As a result, it also works as an excellent anti-ageing ingredient – which is why Marks & Spencer’s new range is already being hailed for its instantly visible results. In fact, the hero product of the line, the Wild Rose 15% Super Vitamin C Bi Phase Booster, is infused with 15% Super Vitamin C, which has five times the clinical-efficiacy level of the stabilised version.
After 28 days of use, 94 per cent of women who tested the booster said they had more radiant, luminous, brighter looking skin, and 86 per cent said they’d seen a reduced appearance of first wrinkles.
But you don’t have to limit yourself to just one bottle – all of the products in the collection are also infused with Super Vitamin C, as well as a radiance-boosting brightening oil, infused with rose petals and wild rose oil (hence the name).
Despite the impressive claims, the entire range is also pleasantly reasonably priced, starting from just £22.
You can shop everything from the Wild Rose Vitamin C Day Cream for Dry Skin (£27), Wild Rose Vitamin C Brightening Face Oil (£32) and Wild Rose Oily Moisturiser (£27), to the Wild Rose Vitamin C Sleeping Facial (£29), Wild Rose Bright Eye Cream (£24) and Wild Rose Vitamin C Exfoliating Cleanser (£22).
In fact, the only real challenge is deciding which one to try first.
