During my recent birthday jaunt which you can read all about here, I came across an & Other Stories store en route to Liberty. I’ve shopped online at & Other Stories (am I writing that correctly? Looks weird) but since being at university, I haven’t visited London as much as I’d like so haven’t had the opportunity to explore. For those of you who don’t know, & Other Stories is part of the H&M group and caters for females with varying budgets and styles.
As soon as I walked into the store I was overcome by this amazing floral aroma and was soon met by shelves upon shelves of lotions and potions. I’m not sure the extent of how out of the loop I am with this, but I had no idea & Other Stories sold bath and body formulas! After trying pretty much every tester they had to offer (I started running out of exposed skin), I settled for these two items from the Lemon Daydream range.
I’m always in the market for a new hand cream and I love anything with a citrus scent, in this case “zesty citrus dappled by sun warmed wood” – fancy! This is a nourishing hand cream that doesn’t leave me feeling too greasy or flapping my hands like a crazy lady, costing just £4! My skin drank up the body lotion as soon as it was applied, leaving me feeling soft and looking glowing! The cashier also told me that if you return your empties, you get 10% off your next beauty purchase! Count me in.
Have you tried anything from & Other Stories beauty?
