Mother's Day is just around the corner, and such a celebration calls for something special. Enter, Marks & Spencer's Mother's Day Box — an expertly-curated beauty box bursting with seven luxury essentials to elevate your mum's self-care routine.
At just £30, it comes complete with a mixture of miniature and full-sized products, spotlighting premium brands like L’Occitane, Neom and Elizabeth Arden, totalling more than £130 in value.
And not just that, the actual contents of the beauty bundle sees standalone products your mum might have only dreamt of, including the Reese Witherspoon-approved Elizabeth Arden Retinol Capsules, and the top-rated Alpha-H Liquid Gold exfoliating treatment.
Hand-picked by M&S's beauty team, we have a feeling this box won't hang around for long, with hundreds already sold since it launched earlier this month. So if you can, we suggest snapping it up fast.
Included in the Mother's Day Box and kicking things off on a high, is Elizabeth Arden's Retinol Capsules, Name-dropped by a number of A-list celebrities, the capsules help to visibly diminish lines and wrinkles, while improving one's skin texture and tone. Usually available in bottles of 30, 60 or 90 tablets, they can cost anywhere between £40 and £100. Which makes this the perfect chance for your mum to sample them before committing to the real thing.
This is followed by a full-sized bottle of Alpha-H Liquid Gold (£43), a highly-rated exfoliating treatment clinically proven to increase luminosity, improve elasticity, and even tone and texture. Great for those with concerns for fine lines and wrinkles.
There's also a travel-sized bottle of fragrance from Floral Street in the scent Wonderland Peony (£28) — a light, fruity and floral perfume perfect for carrying on-the-go.
For those in need of some TLC, there's L’Occitane's Cherry Blossom Shower Gel (£17.50) for winding down after a long day, scented with delicate cherry blossom.
Neom's Calming Hand Balm (£10) also makes an appearance, because self-care doesn't just stop at the face. For an extra dose of nourishment at bedtime, there's Formula's Mini Sleep Cream (£9.50) that shoppers say "helps even out skin blemishes". And to complete the pampering, there's even a gorgeous blush nail polish from Nails Inc (£15).
All of this comes packaged in a charming pink and orange box, detailed with a lovely little poem. With a total worth of more than £130, this is a great deal to pick up ahead of Mother's Day, whether it's for gifting or for keeping all to yourself...
