If you spend £40 or more. Has anyone got one and if so what is it like?

I've had them before, some products are full size and some are just mini ones.

I might buy this one as it does contain quite a bit.

I've bought all the M&S beauty boxes and they really are excellent. I want this one too but I can't think of anything to spend the £40 on!

School uniforms are 20% off too, so I bought uniform and then bought the beauty box.

I also bought uniform and then the beauty box. I had the advent calendar at Christmas and used pretty much every item in it apart from the soap and the perfume (which i'll probably send to the school fair) so I'm looking forward to it.

Sounds good, definitely things I want to buy so shouldn't have problems spending £40.

trixymalixy Thu 09-Jun-16 17:03:16

I'm looking forward to the huile prodigeuse.

I got this earlier. I did post in chat but no interest. I'm really pleased with it, I've only tried the Stila lip glaze so far and it's more my colour than the one in the advent calendar.

Argh! MUST SPEND £40!!!

Talisin Thu 09-Jun-16 17:31:45

Aha! Finally a good excuse to get the bag I've been contemplating for a few weeks. Thanks for the heads up.

I ordered mine today! Took forever to find something to spend £40 on! (Toner and eye cream in the end) smile

I didn't even realise this offer was on! Went to M&S today to take advantage of 20% off school uniforms ... and blew the saving on this!

I think it's well worth it if you're going to be spending in M&S anyway - the goody boxes were fair flying off the shelves when I went into our local store this morning.

Tate15 Thu 09-Jun-16 17:53:27

Ordered three dresses and a pair of sunglasses. Then I realised I should have made two separate orders and for two boxes!

But then I thought that's just being greedy!

saltysquid Thu 09-Jun-16 18:02:02

You should have Tate15, it would make a good gift too!

BinRaidingRaccoon Thu 09-Jun-16 19:29:37

Bugger, it's just gone out of stock. The Mothers Day one was great!

Tate15 Thu 09-Jun-16 19:36:15

I've just gone in the FForestfach and bought a pair of dark jeans and two t shirts and then one of the same dresses that I ordered online and got the box.

I can return the dress I ordered online. Just admit I'm glad I've done this as the dress isn't very well made and I selected three in my size and two had untidy necklines! I'm glad I chose it in person.

Two women in front of me declined to buy the box but they were both in their sixties and didn't have make up on.

It's a nice neat box and worth a tenner.

BinRaidingRaccoon Thu 09-Jun-16 19:43:58

Ignore me, it's still in stock. Bugger me, aren't the clothes shocking at the moment?! There's one nice-ish denim skirt, but it's slim pickings for sure.

prettywhiteguitar Thu 09-Jun-16 19:44:24

The lip glaze, nail varnish, top coat and face cleanser are worth it alone ! It's a great box, I bought dd two summer outfits, dh a shirt - even though he thinks he's too cool for m&s and a hat for my mental mother.

I was looking for me but didn't see anything.

prettywhiteguitar Thu 09-Jun-16 19:44:58

Yes I wanted some peg linen trousers but they were all big sizes

Tate15 Thu 09-Jun-16 19:59:27

This year has not been good for spring and summer clothes in M&S

The finishings are bad, the cuts are awkward at best and a lot of the fabrics, patterns and shapes are awful.

This year is the least I've spent in there. The Alexa range is lovely but not all suited me for my age but the dresses in general this year are quite poor.

The sleeves on many tips are just hideous shales.

This is the dress I bought today instore

It looks better than the picture whereas others I liked online are hideous when you see them instore! There was a lovely indigo dress that looks lovely u til you feel the fabric, cheap an nasty!

lurkingfromhome Thu 09-Jun-16 19:59:41

I ended up getting a dress that I only half like, some gradual tanner for the face, a t shirt for DH and a tube of sun cream. Quite dull but the clothes were all largely minging and there was nothing that I really needed TBH.

Tate15 Thu 09-Jun-16 20:00:27

The sleeves on many tops are just hideous shapes.

Tate15 Thu 09-Jun-16 20:18:23

These are the other two dresses that I've ordered

P1nkP0ppy Thu 09-Jun-16 20:34:00

The box is really great, I think it's the best beauty box I've ever had!

200ml of Alpha H Liquid Gold is £40 so got my box and Liquid Gold which I've been dithering about for ages.
