Take a quick glance through my wardrobe and you’ll be able to tell straight away that I’m a fan of & Other Stories. While I am by no means a fashion connoisseur, I do know that as a retailer, it does a rather great job of offering up chic yet wearable fashion options. And although I do love perusing the fashion section, when I’m shopping, there’s really only ever one thing on my mind: beauty.
As more and more high-street stores amp up their beauty offerings, it is & Other Stories that sets the bar. In fact, in the past, when other brands offered up little more than budget hand creams at till points, & Other Stories had a whole collection of beauty goodies on offer. When it launched in 2013, it had enlisted cult perfume brand Byredo’s founder, Ben Gorham, and world-renowned makeup artist Lisa Butler to consult on its fragrance, skincare and colour offerings. Seven years later and things just keep getting better and better. With pretty packaging, great product efficacy and super-impressive price tags, there’s little I can fault.
If you’re not sure what to choose, let me guide you to the best beauty buys & Other Stories has to offer.

It's hard to find affordable candles that look (and smell) as chic as they do at & Other Stories. At the moment, I can't get enough of this serene-smelling number. I light it in the evenings to keep my bedroom smelling of it all night long. Plus, it looks great on the side.
Another great beauty brand stocked at & Other Stories is Klairs, a vegan Korean skincare brand that champions a simple skincare approach. This vitamin C serum leaves skin glowing, more even and radiant.
