Yes, iconic store Selfridges are releasing a one-off beauty box (filled to the brim with niche and luxury brands for us to sample) in celebration of the launch of their new Beauty Workshop.

The box costs £15 to buy but contains items worth that value many, many times over.

I can’t divulge the contents, so instead you’ll have to head over to my good friend Vexinthecity for that grand reveal.

The main thing to remember about the Selfridge’s Beauty Box is that numbers will be extremely limited and are likely to sell out faster than a certain Mr. Bolt could do a lap of the sportswear department.

Will you be buying the Selfridges Beauty Box? If so, you’ll need to sign up here – and be quick about it!

    Tried all morning to get it but no luck. Website kept crashing and many people have been venting their frustration on the social networks. What a shame. I hope Selfridges tries a similar promotion soon and with the IT to back it up.

    Because of your blog I managed to get one of these v.early on Tuesday morning. It was delivered yesterday and is FANTASTIC!

    Not only was it gorgeously packaged (I do love a bit of tissue paper and ribbon) but for just £15 it is amazing value. I needed a new face oil and would have spent £16 on that… so hey, it’s saved me money :)

    Thank you. Not only for a fabulous blog which I read with interest every time you post something new – but also for pointing me in the direction of this box of goodies!

    Shame I live in Stoke and can’t pop along to the new Selfridges Beauty Hall when I feel like it though… x

    I found this offer really irritating. After registering immediately after you posted, I never received any email notification of the box going on sale, when I tried the link again…’access denied’. What’s the point ?

    • A lot of people were disappointed with the website’s inability to keep up with the demand that the offer generated. It’s a shame that so many ended up missing out through no fault of their own and I really hope Selfridges will learn from it.
