Open your eyes

Just as we need to drink water to hydrate from the inside, so our skin needs some extra moisturising from the outside to perk it up.

Pure Super Hydrate Eye Serum at M&S is a super-light and refreshing serum that glides across the skin easily, which means no tugging and so minimises the creation of any unwanted fine lines.
