£60 Boots beauty box for £25 incl No7, Soap & Glory, L'Oreal etc*
Online & some stores. Six skincare items, eg, lip balm, clay mask, vitamin C cream20,000 available
You can get 'The Glow Skin Edit' beauty box with six skincare items from No7, Soap & Glory, L'Oreal, Burt's Bees, Garnier and Face Halo for £25 online at Boots*.
From our calculations, the items in the box would normally cost £60ish if you were to buy them separately, though a couple of the items are currently on offer, meaning when we checked you could get all the products for £43ish – so this beauty box still gives a decent saving on these popular brands.
Boots says the deal is also available in 180 of its larger stores, though it wasn't able to give us a list of locations so it's not worth making a special trip just for the beauty box. If you order online, you can collect in any Boots store for free, otherwise delivery's £3.50.
There are 20,000 boxes available and Boots has told us it'll run the offer while stock lasts. We reckon this deal is going to be popular so if it's something you're after, go quick.

As the wonderful Dolly Parton said: "It costs a lot of money to look this cheap". And she's right, buying make-up isn't easy on the pocket.
So we've done the glamorous job of scouring our local pound shops looking for branded beauty bargains. Some are discontinued (they were the hottest trends once, so we think anyway) and others are still in the shops with a big price tag.
Click the image below to see our haul:
- Rimmel Wake Me Up mousse - £5 at Tesco
- Rimmel Glam Eyes trio - £4.99 (incl delivery) elsewhere online
- TOWIE false eyelashes - £13 for a 3-pack elsewhere online, so about £4 each
- Calvin Klein sheer creme eyeshadow - RRP £1.50, but we saw it for £5 elsewhere online
- Rimmel 60 seconds nail polish - was £3.70 at Tesco, now £2.70
This is what we found in our local stores. Speaking to Poundland, it said you can get these items in most stores, while stocks last.
Can cosmetics go off?
The British Skin Foundation says:
"Cosmetic products will remain safe to use provided they are stored under suitable conditions and not subjected to extreme temperatures."
"To ensure the maximum durability of cosmetic products, they should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and with the lids firmly closed."
It also said the use by date on cosmetics, is from when you open the product. So if it says 18 months on the box, it should last for 18 months from when you open it, provided it's been stored correctly.
