There’s nothing I love more than a big box full of miniature beauty products and M&S have come up trumps again this year with their Summer Beauty Box. I loved last years offering and went on to repurchase a couple of products, for me its a great way of trying out new brands or products without having to purchase a full size.
The limited edition Summer Beauty Box is available both in-store and online, yours for just £15 when you spend £40 on clothing, beauty or home. Not bad considering the products inside are worth over £115. As soon as this came out I took a visit to my local M&S, popped a few bits of school uniform in my basket and grabbed this off the shelves. Seeing as last years box was a sell out I wasn’t taking any chances!
Marks and Spencer’s offering in the way of beauty is now huge, stocking some of the biggest brands, it’s one of my go to places when I’m looking for something new. The Summer Beauty Box contains 10 products, only one of which I had tried previously, in perfect sized miniatures for an upcoming holiday.
What’s included in the box?
Formula Deeply Nourishing Face Mask – I love a good face mask, especially one that can put something back into my skin. I think this will be perfect for putting on after a day by the pool on holiday to re-nourish my skin.
Rosie for Autograph Radiance Highlighter – Who doesn’t love the look of sun kissed skin in the summer. Personally I don’t allow my face to tan from the sun and usually rely on self tanners, so a product like this is perfect to add a glow onto the face. (This product is full size)
This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle – I was excited to see this product included as I’ve heard so many good reviews. A tinted multi-vitamin serum, it’s ‘perfect’ to enhance and repair the look of your skin. This will definately be coming on holiday with me.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo – I love a dry shampoo, especially on holiday. This product actually cleans hair by eliminating the oil and sweat, whilst leaving hair smelling clean.
Shay & Blue English Cherry Blossom EDP – I’d never tried any fragrances from boutique brand Shay & Blue before, and this one is certainly a gorgeous rich floral scent. I’ve been spraying this already, perfect for summer.
Ultrasun Face SPF30 – I’m a huge fan of SPF’s for the face, and I’m excited to try this brand. I usually veer towards a French brand for my suncare but this one offers heavy duty UVA and UVB protection whilst also being very lightweight. I shall be popping this on my face for the foreseeable.
Rodial Vit-C Energising Face Mask – I’m a huge fan of Rodial, and a lover of products with Vitamin C in, the fact that it’s an easy to use sheet mask too, it seems inevitable I’ll enjoy using this.
Emma Hardie Moisture Boost Vit C Cream – I’m excited to have this one back, I’ve used it before, a daily moisturiser for the face containing Vitamin C to improve skin tone and give a tired complexion a bit of a boost.
Ren Atlantic Kelp Shower Gel – I’ve used Ren body washes but not this particular one. With Atlantic kelp and magnesium it promises to awaken and refresh my tired sluggish skin and senses so I think I’ll be using this a lot!
Skin Iceland Eye Gels – Hydracool and firming transdermal patches to help firm, de-puff and reduce premature wrinkling under eyes within 10 minutes. I’ve already used these and would certainly purchase again.
So that’s everything included inside the box, pretty obvious to see it’s well worth spending the extra £15 when you’re next in M&S to get one of these. Given that last years was a sell out, if you want one I’d order one pretty quick.
