It’s that time of year again when we need to upgrade our beauty stash for summer and stock up on some essential mini versions for upcoming holidays.
Of course, our trusty high street favourite, Marks & Spencer, is making that super-easy for us with the ultimate beauty bargain – the M&S Summer Beauty Bag.
Packed with big-name brands (think Clinique, Aveda, Prai for starters) you’ll get £160 worth of best-selling skincare, nail, make-up and hair products for an incredible £25.
Inside the bag you’ll find cult buys like This Works Perfect Legs Body Butter, Emma Hardie Plum & Glow Hydrating Facial Mist, and Clinique Moisture Surge 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator to name a few of the covetable products.
To get this incredible deal, you need to spend just £30 across on clothes, home, or beauty in-store or online.
You can safely say we’ll be racing to M&S to stock up on all our summer wardrobe favourites too (like these Magic Shaping Jeans, these seriously cheap cropped joggers, and this gorgeous dress Holly Willoughby loves) so we can get our hands on the beauty bag, pronto.
Because yes, you guessed it, it’ll sell out faster than you can say ‘add to basket’.
What’s in the M&S Summer Beauty Bag?
You’ll get a whopping 11 products (six full-sized and five nifty mini versions) which are housed inside a stylish mesh cosmetic bag you can keep and use forever.
The full-sized Origins Ginzing Eye Cream, 15ml is currently on offer for £26 – which makes it more expensive than the whole beauty gift bag containing 11 products. With over 2000 reviews, many stating how the eye-cream brightens, depuffs and refreshes their under-eye area, this product alone makes the M&S summer gift bag a worthy investment.
We’ve also been after this Aveda Botanical Repair™ Leave-In Treatment due to its well-known restorative abilities, and the fact it protects your locks from heat up to 230° (hence it has over 1000 positive reviews). At £29.50, it’s a bit of an investment, so getting the full-sized version in the beauty bag is an incredible saving.
The five mini-sized items are perfect for travel, keeping in your handbag for on-the-go touchups – or even trying something out before splashing out on the full-size version.
We’re especially excited about the Clinique Moisture Surge 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator, 15ml (it retails for £13 usually), which is the perfect travel-sized gem. A lightweight, oil-free gel-cream, the brand claims the hydration lasts 100 hours.
And this (almost full-sized) must-have – This Works Perfect Legs Body Butter, 150ml – is another favourite. It’s a super-nourishing body butter with geranium and sweet orange essential oils and usually costs £25 for the 200g full-sized version.
The trial sized, 30ml Prai Ageless Upper Arm Crème (which utilises a caffeine-infused complex to help visibly firm and tone the skin on the upper arms) is the perfect way to test it out – the 110ml version retails for £20.
