Space NK are running their Discover promotion again – £10 off if you spend £40 or more – and I have an exclusive preview code for readers of A Model Recommends that allows access to the promotion a day before everyone else. The idea behind the “discovery” element is that you try something new – something that has piqued your interest – and I like that you can more readily justify the purchase because you’re getting some cash back! Nice. It applies to any purchase of £40 or over, so you’re not limited to certain brands or ranges; pick anything, add it to your basket and once you’ve hit the threshold you’ll get a tenner off. (Use code RUTH10 at checkout here.)
There are quite a few things that have grabbed my attention lately; new brands like Goldfaden MD (top photo – I love the look of the Doctor’s Scrub!), affordable teen skincare and beauty products with weird and wonderful textures. Take the jelly cleanser from NUDE, for example – it’s hard not to eat want to eat it – and their new “fizzy” cleanser that exfoliates and refines the skin as you wash. It’s just refreshing little tweaks like this that keep beauty exciting and fun.
Sam Farmer‘s teen skincare range has been everywhere recently and I love it for its simplicity and no-faff attitude. A small range, totally pared-back, but all of the essentials are covered. The price is good, the ingredients are nice…if I had a teen son or daughter I’d definitely be giving them this range to try. And it’s obviously great for older people too… You can find it here.
And of course there are the old favourites; pretty much anything by Zelens (the Resurfacing Facial Pads are like little disposable exfoliating facials, swipe over to leave skin bright and clear), the brilliant Multi-Use Clay from Diptyque (read my full review here) and my guiltiest beauty pleasure, the Densiliss foundation from By Terry. Thank God a little of this stuff goes a long way!
Plenty of food for thought, there, if you’re stuck for inspiration. And I haven’t even started on makeup properly – NARS, Laura Mercier, Hourglass, Kevyn Aucoin… Your Space NK coupon /discount code, should you wish to use it, is RUTH10.
