Get beauty goodies worth €200 for only €40 - and there's no catch!

M&S’ 12-piece Summer Beauty Bag has just hit shelves and it’s good – as in ‘add to basket right now’ good.

The gift set is available to Irish customers for €40. Packaged in a green mesh washbag, it contains six full-size items in addition to six travel minis from a variety of quality skincare, hair and cosmetics brands like Clinique and L’Occitane. 

I love the pick’n’mix nature of beauty bags and mystery subscription boxes in general because they are a chance to try new products that are not on my radar, but they can be hit and miss.

M&S’ new offering provides great value I think, when you consider the Floral Street Arizona Bloom (10ml) perfume included, it alone usually retails for €39.

Top tip:

I had a look to see how much the set costs in Derry, and I see that customers are required to spend £30 on full-price clothing, homeware or beauty first to avail of the offer, and it is only then that UK customers can purchase the beauty bag for £35, otherwise it will set them back £170.

Whereas in Donegal similar restrictions do not apply, so you can hit up M&S Letterkenny or else order it online for €40 – the standard delivery fee is €4.50 or free of charge if you spend over €50.

On a final note – if you want a slice of the beauty action, you better be quick as the limited-time offer is only available while stocks last.


A little bit about me:

I cover all things makeup, skincare and haircare. From quality dupes to the latest launches, I love to discover new beauty finds. I have recently relocated home to Carndonagh after twenty years away, and I have previously written for the Belfast Telegraph, Ireland’s Wedding Journal and Abu Dhabi Week.
