Have you bought it, Dream Girl? I was looking at it yesterday but I wouldn't use half of it - I would like to try the Shay & Blue but that's about it. I don't know where they get the £110 value from either (they must be right though). Also, do I want it enough to spend £40 on clothes/home/beauty when there's no good discounts on? Last year's, on the other hand, was pretty good value and I really liked it.

No Andi I haven’t, ordered some shoes for hubby for FD and they were a little big so re ordered half size down but missed seeing this. Like you I wouldn’t use all the stuff and quite happy with my Aldi beauty. Just thought I may appeal to someone.

I got the email and thought there must be a load more items not in the photo! I find the value very surprising but like you two I dont fancy much of it, although I would like the Shay and Blue. Compare this to the Christmas one where I am still using/havent started some of the items!

Always good to pop it up on here, thanks. M&S had a box a year or two ago (can't remember what time of year) and it sold out really quickly. I didn't get an email but I saw it mentioned on this board and by the time I looked at the site, it had gone, including in my local store (if it was ever there). I emailed them to moan that they had not let me know in time and they said they emailed everyone. That one was really good value - I have a suspicion the latest one won't sell very well.

Oh yes, the Advent Calendar one is usually excellent. I try to be first in line for that!

Oooh! That (from my point of view) is a lovely box. I love the REN magnesium and kelp stuff... I rate the Ultrasun (despite Abi, not because of her), and there are some other brands I really like. But I will only be persuaded if I actually have some purchases I need to make!

What happens if you were to order online and had to take back something would they then charge full price for the beauty box?

I think I'd have to go and buy in-store for anything I buy. M&S fashion is a bit hit or miss for me - it's better if I can try on in-store. I've my eye on a sofa - but I won't be buying that anytime soon!

You’re so bloomin’ good! Even £100 sounds an awful lot to me. I like the way they proudly declare “full size” on the sachets!

M&S really pull it out with these great deal beauty bags. Seriously you buy in Home, Clothes and or Beauty and for £15 extra can get it. Most other stores have the spend £££ to get their versions. It does look smaller but I think last year you had to add £25 to get it?

I agree Andi I couldn't believe how poor it is compared to last years. I won't even consider getting it.

I see the M&S Summer Beauty Box is still in stock, both online and in stores. I almost relented and bought it last week but I shall stick to my guns as I don't think the contents are worth £15 for me, despite the stated value. If they reduced it to £10 (unlikely but they need to shift it somehow), I might consider it.
