    Boots Star Gift thread 27th Sep 16 at 8:31 AM
    Just been into my local store and apparently the first star gift is a Smashbox set, usually about £30 but will be half price. - correction it is £30 cost of the bits would be over £70

    Starts Friday so I'm guessing more details will appear in next day or so.

    I'm not a huge fan of no7, if I buy one I think it will be the M&S one.

    Boots are good at cosmetics, I don't rate their healthcare services though.

    I got my gift guide in Birmingham last week. I think they must have put theirs out early as it still wasn't available in my Stratford upon Avon maybird store Friday. It might be out now though.

    I am disappointed with it though. Not enough content even though I know there's loads of gifts available as I saw them all in store.

    Don't forget the The Benefit 'Gals Just Wanna Have Fun' set that is on offer from Friday.

    £29.50 worth £42.

    The No7 star gift looks very nice in a sparkly black box that when you open looks like a New York Skyscene, £80.

    Not sure which Soap & Glory set it is, there is one at £60 in a metal suitcase but also a set at £50. Which ever way I'm guessing there will be an offer on both of them at some point in the run up to Christmas.

    Hey Figgi, any ideas what is in the Benefit set? Is it the exclusive Boots one, like previous years?

    It doesn't say that it cannot be used on a Star Gift just that the gift must have a green parcel sticker on it.
