Selfridges Limited Edition Beauty Project Box - Review

I do love a beauty box and when I saw that Selfridges were releasing one of their limited edition boxes I had to snap it up, these sell like hot cakes and sell out super quickly so timing was of the essence. In actual fact I owe thanks to my lovely Mum who ordered it for me as I was working when I received the email to say the box had being released for sale she received a frantic begging phone call from me asking her to put the order in for me! We had a few issues with the delivery as we had paid for Saturday delivery and it never turned up but full credit to Selfridges they refunded the postage and it arrived only a few days after ordered, I think I was pretty lucky to get one to be honest. 

Having briefly looked at the contents online I kind of knew what to expect but when I actually received the box I was blown away, this is what you call a beauty box. Crammed full of high end products and full to the brim, costing only £30 (excluding p&P) the contents itself have a value of around £120.

The box is so full I don't know where to begin so  shall just do a quick run through of all the items I received. 

Exclusive Selfridges Limited Edition Make Up Bag: You can never have too many make up bags right? Well this one will be perfect to take away on holiday as it's quite tall so will fit lots of things. 

Nars Mini Blush in Deep Throat: Gorgeous item and beautiful packaging, a lovely addition to my collection. 

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant 13G: I love Dermalogica, I don't often use the brand but I can't wait to test this out especially as I have just run out of my Clarins exfoliator! I like the fact that it's a powder that you mix with water to make a paste, quite cool! 

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer 30ml: Great item, I have used a couple of Laura Mercier products before and they are lovely, I have tried this out and it's a fantastic item, I love primer and this will be a great addition to my collection.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser 30ml: Another lovely item, the brand is one that I have used before, although I've never tried the facial cleanser so this has gone straight near the sink to be tested out.

Percy and Reed Dry Shampoo 150ml: This is my least favourite item purely because I have about 4 other tins of dry shampoo floating around and I didn't really need anymore but that being said I love the packaging of this and will definitely make use of it at some point in the future.

Lancaster Silky Milk Tanning Lotion 50ml: Perfect item to be sent with my holiday looming, I'll be throwing this in my beach bag for round the pool, I've never used this brand before so am looking forward to testing it out. 

Tangle Teezer in Original Pink:I have a lot of love for tangle teezers and even though I already have one with a handle I've been using this one the last few days and it's great. I prefer the handle on the one I already have as it makes it easier to hold but I prefer the ease of this one going through my hair, plus it's hot pink which means I love it even more!

Eyeko Mini Black Magic Mascara 4ml:You can never have enough mascaras can you? This one is great, gorgeous packaging, excellent last power and it's lovely to apply. It really does make my eyelashes longer and thicker, I love it so much I think I'll have to purchase full size when it runs out!

Paul and Joe Blotting Papers: Oh I do love Paul & Joe, especially their packaging, I've used a few of their products over the years and always the cutsie packaging wins for me! These blotting papers are great and oh so handy for my holidays, great item to receive. 

Exclusive Carmex Limited Edition Lip Balm: LOVE Carmex lip balms, I find it one of the best lip balms on the market and go through tubs and tubs of the stuff, could not be more pleased to get another one to add to the collection!

Exclusive Phyto 7 Limited Edition Hair Cream 50ml:I've not heard of this brand before but I love the idea of it, as always I am looking for a decent product to use in my hair to stop it from looking it dry and crispy at the ends so I look forward to seeing the results of this!

EOS Berry Hand Cream 40ml:I love EOS and this hand cream smells divine and the packaging is lovely! Great item to be sent and it's such a nice size it's fits perfectly in my handbag without taking up too much room.

Ole Henricksen Truth to Go Wipes:Face wipes are a god send and I've never tried any super expensive wipes (I think full prize these range from £12.00 - £25.00), it will be interesting to see how these compare to high street brands. 

So there we have it a box crammed full of goodies, I think you'll agree that this is well worth £30, sadly they are now sold out but I'm sure they'll be releasing another box at some point and I will definitely be looking out for another one. I think beauty boxes should take note that items like this and high profile brands are much more appreciated than certain high street brands. 

Did anyone else buy this and what did you think?
