Choosing SIX products from a total of 67 was quite the challenge and it was one I dithered over for some time before finally being lucky enough to get the ones I really wanted to try. Brand choices included Charlotte Tilbury, MAC, The Body Shop, Bourjois, Jessica, Elemis, Philip Kingsley, Real Techniques, Dr Dennis Gross, Caudalie, Lancome, Clinique and many more. Some products would be snapped up just as soon as the stock was replenished and even now there are still some amazing products to put together to make up a fabulous box.  I really wanted to try the Dr Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Moisture Cushion, which I have heard and read a lot about, but it was out of stock when I made my purchase.  Instead, this is what I chose for my box:

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips in shade Pin Up Pink (rrp £24) - This is described as being a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and whilst pink wouldn't usually be a shade I would opt for, what I like about this particular shade is the warmness.

With a satin finish, the mousse-like texture is lightweight when applied and is pigmented enough that it covers the lips evenly.  

Real Techniques Powder Bleu Powder Brush (rrp £22) - This is one set of Real Techniques brushes that I don't own. I am pretty sure I have every other collection, so without question, this is one brush I needed to add to my stash.

This brush uses synthetic bristles engineered to perform as well as blue squirrel hair and has a large tapered head designed for flawless application of powder bronzers and highlighters.

The Body Shop Spa of the World Tahitian Tiare Bath & Shower Oil-In-Gel (rrp £7) - It was the description of this bath and shower oil-in-gel which sold it to me - "Everyone loves a pamper day at a luxurious spa as a special treat, which, let’s face it, doesn’t happen often. When it comes to a moment of pure escapism – which should definitely be a regular thing – maybe all you really need is a nice hot shower in the comfort of your own home, with this extra-special Spa of the World Bath & Shower Oil-in-Gel".

For me, when stress takes hold, the one place I find to calm down is in water - the bath, shower, the sea or even a swimming pool. Using monoi oil, a blend of tiaré blossom extract and coconut oil from Tahiti alongside Community Trade honey from Ethiopia and Community Trade coconut oil from Samoa, I am sure you can imagine just how divine this product is.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand in Light (rrp £29) - Ever since these launched I have been fascinated by the cushion applicator, which makes it looks really easy to use.

With the shade light being the perfect shade for me to try it is described as being the perfect lightweight, blendable, buildable formula to create a well-contoured face.

The Body Shop Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Facial Mask (rrp £17) - Enriched with matcha green tea from Kakegawa, Japan, dandelion extract and soul-soothing Community Trade aloe vera from Mexico.

This mask is described as being indulgently creamy this 100% vegan mask works to deeply purify, gently exfoliate as it cleans your skin from the weekly build-up of city pollutants and everyday impurities.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm (rrp £9) - A product I have wanted to try for some time now. Described as being a powerful, deep cleansing balm, for those who love a double cleanse, this balm is the ideal second step as it dissolves makeup, daily grime and pollutants, leaving skin intensely cleansed, nourished and renewed for a glowing complexion.

Using luxurious rose and mimosa waxes which are infused with nourishing elderberry, starflower and optimega oils and supercharged with anti-ageing algae, padina pavonica. It smells just incredible and I cannot wait to see if it lives up to my expectations.

As you might imagine, I am absolutely chuffed with this box and am delighted I was able to get my hands on some amazing products.  In total, this box has an RRP of £108 and I paid just £25.

Did you manage to grab anything for yourself from this collaboration?
