Marks and Spencer are currently holding a Beauty Discovery event, which means if you buy one product or two products depending on the brand you can bag yourself a free gift (while stocks last). Brands include; Ren, Bliss, Nuxe, James Read, Philip Kingsley, Murad, Jurlique and many more.
My favourite pick from the brands was this luxury travel set from Ren. Ren Clean Skincare has to be one of my favourite skincare brands and I wanted to try some products from the new Rosa Centifolia line, so I bought the Rosa Centifolia 3-in-1 Cleansing Water and the Rosa Centifolia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser. Ren Clean Skincare gives you healthier, more beautiful skin that looks younger for longer. Their products are free from parabens and suitble for vegans and vegetarians.
In the Ren Clean Skincare Discovery Kit you receive 6 mini's of some of Ren's best selling products including; Moroccan Rose Otto Body Cream 50ml, Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash 50ml, Vita-Mineral Day Cream 15ml, Glcolactic Radiance Renewal Mask 15ml, Frankincense Revitalising Night Cream 15ml and Rose Centifolia Cleansing Gel 25ml. Which all comes in a cute travel bag and is worth £40. 
I think it's such a great way of promoting beauty brands at M&S and gives the customer a variety of products to try from the range. The Beauty Discovery event is on until September 11th so hurry, you don't want to miss out on this great beauty find!
Update: The Beauty Discovery Event has been extended for another week till the 18th September!
What are your Ren recommendations?

I first set my eyes on this Beauty Portfolio whilst shopping in Selfridges' beauty hall. The sales assistant was totally selling it, but I knew I couldn't part with that much money there and then on essentially a make-up bag. But last month, I was lucky enough to win one when I entered a twitter competition with Space NK! Laura Mercier has to be one of my favourite high-end brands, so I was so excited to receive something which had been on my wish list for a long time.
The exclusive Laura Mercier Custom Artist Portfolio - Petite - £85* is an all-in-one Beauty Portfolio for home and away. This exclusive organiser features two custom designed removable mesh cosmetic bags and a double-sided pocketed brush page. The mesh cosmetic bags are magnetic so they are perfect to transfer into your handbag for daily use. The set also includes four eyeshadows in; Pale Pink, Granite, Morning Dew and Sea Storm. A Blusher in; Rose Petal, a Lip Glace in Pink Prep and an Eye Pencil in Stone Slate which is a deluxe travel size. My favourite being the blush! The eyeshadows are so creamy and easy to blend - so I'm interested to discover more shades from the collection to fit into my palette.
The set is ideal for travelling and the 3-well custom compact means you can fit four shadows and a blusher and change them out when you like. The hard shell means it's quite bulky to fit into your luggage, but at least you know your make-up is all in one place and not going to get ruined at all. I have had lots of fun transferring some of my make-up into my organiser. I can't wait to use this some more when I'm staying away from home or on holiday, it is ideal for weekend trips if you want a variety of make-up in your stash.
What do you think of Beauty Portfolios?
