M&S Beauty Advent Calendar
Okay, so this is the big one I think – the one I’ve seen the most excitement about anyway, and certainly to me it seems like incredible value with some very desirable products. Although I have little or nothing to do with the M&S affiliate programme these days (they email me with ‘amazing’ offers by mistake every now and again) because you had to join a special group and it’s not my job to sell for M&S, I think this is going to be very heavily promoted by affiliates and therefore will sell out very, very quickly (look what happened with the MAC one – the first run was gone in a day).
So, it’s the usual deal – the advent will cost you £35 with a £35 spend on home, clothing or beauty. Everyone can make a happy £35 spend in any of those departments I would have thought, and £35 for everything in the calendar, when it has a value of £280+, seems unmissable to me. My only issue is that it’s not that stable when you open it up. The box stacking is like a puzzle (pity the poor packers who had to do this job!) and it feels like one wrong move and it’s Jenga time. Good luck putting it all back if that happens 😊.
