If you haven’t already heard the news, M&S will not be launching a beauty advent calendar this year. But before you lose all hope of bagging a beauty bargain from the store this side of December, we recommend that you check out the new M&S beauty box that’s replacing the traditional 24-door offering.
‘This year we didn’t want to wait until December to give you a beauty treat. Instead indulge in an at-home pampering session with our curated beauty box,’ the store explains on its website. ‘It’s full to the brim with ten must-have products, including one surprise skincare item. Find nourishing hair formulas, revitalising creams and classic make-up, all displayed in a colourful box for you or a loved one to enjoy.’
Intrigued? Well, the wait is over, and it turns out it was worth it. This new M&S beauty box, labelled the You Beauty! edit, is packed with amazing names from the brand’s beauty hall, including Nuxe, Living Proof, This Works, Ren and Prai, to the tune of a cool £122 value.
However, the ever generous M&S team are giving you the chance to get your hands on one for just £20 – all you have to do is spend £30 on clothing, homeware or beauty products during the same (online) shop.
This includes all of M&S’s Christmas ranges, so if there was ever an excuse to get some gifts for friends and family and pamper yourself at the same time, this is it. And while it’s not the 24 product line-up you’d have got in the advent calendars of previous years, there’s still plenty of skin and haircare treats to get stuck into for that festive glow.

M&S is already predicting demand for the boxes to be high, to the point where the box is only available for home delivery, rather than in stores. However, if you prefer to send your order to your nearest branch, it can still be picked up in your chosen store, and your Edit Box will be delivered to your home address at a later date.
