Vegan beauty is a massive trend for 2020 and Marks & Spencer are stepping up to the plate with a brand new skincare collection that also makes great progress with recycling and sustainability. Here’s the low down on the effective and affordable M&S PURE Vegan Skincare Collection.
What is in the M&S PURE Vegan Skincare Collection?
The good news is that this is a really great, comprehensive collection with pretty much something for everyone. Being a bit of a cleansing addict, I am particularly impressed with the vast choice within the cleansing category, called PURE Ultimate Cleanse.
There’s a fabulous rose cleansing balm that’s just £12. If you like to follow with a lighter cleanse, you’ll be pleased to know there’s a super gentle face wash formulated with Chamomile, Oat and Calendula that’s just £5. They are a fab duo.

Review & Recommendations
As you can see, it’s a pretty full collection. It is 100% vegan, uses 95% naturally derived ingredients, many of which are sourced from the by-products of English Wine produced for M&S in the UK. Much of the packaging is recyclable, including the pumps (which is very unusual) and the labeling is clear and helpful.
Rose Cleansing Balm
The Rose Cleansing Balm is one of my top picks. It removed my makeup effortlessly and emulsified into a silky milk beautifully. For £12, it’s awfully similar to the iconic Elemis cleansing balm. My only complaint is that the muslin cloth it comes with is a little small for my liking but the product itself is excellent value, and if you love a balm, you will most likely have plenty of cloths.
Another excellent product is the Glycolic Toner which gives a really good tingle and gets the skin glowing instantly. The formula is 98.3% naturally derived, with 5% citric and 4% glycolic acids to really help to slough off dead skin cells. Love it.
Super Hydrate Oil Treatment
Finally, if you’re looking for a super light face oil, the Super Hydrate Oil Treatment is excellent. It is rich in fatty acids and helps to restore the all-important skin barrier without any greasy feel.
The M&S PURE Vegan skincare collection is out now and definitely worth checking out.
