There's nothing we love more than bagging a bargain in our beauty routine, and M&S' September Beauty Box for 2023 ticks every box.
Not only is it affordable, costing just £25, inside you'll find the crème de la crème of beauty brands stocked at the retailer. We're talking Pixi, Dr Paw Paw, REN Skincare and more.
Why we rate it
It's the perfect opportunity to update your bathroom shelf, all without spending a fortune — despite being worth a total of £90. After a few weeks of it being out of stock due to huge demand when it first launched earlier this month, it's now back and available to purchase again.
There are nine products in total, including Emma Hardie's cult favourite Moringa Cleansing Balm, L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream, REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream and Dr Paw Paw Original Balm.

What the reviews say
Although it only launched earlier this month, the beauty box has already gathered 135 reviews with a five-star ratings across the board. Buyers have hailed it as a "fantastic beauty box", with "outstanding value". While one shopper even said they hope M&S do one for October.
"Beautiful selection! Lovely lot of top quality products to try at a good price!"
"Good mixture of beauty items to try as a little treat. The boxes allow you to try things at a reasonable cost and then go on to buy full size or repeat items."
"Fantastic value, really affordable way to try new products."
"Great way to try premium beauty brands. Well thought out contents, attractively presented and competitively priced."
"Amazing value beauty box. I love everything so far and it’s definitely given me a taster of products I’d never even considered buying."
Given its low price but luxury payoff, we suspect this beauty box won't take long to sell out, so if your interest has piqued, be sure to add it to your basket ASAP.
While it would definitely make a lovely gift, it's such a brilliant bargain, we'll be keeping this all to ourselves.
