A little Debenhams bargain!

So I spotted this little set at Debenhams for the bargainous price of £13.50 and couldn't resist purchasing it. There are a couple of brands I haven't tried and a couple I have and like. 

Here is what the set contained:

I have worked out the individual prices using the costs for the full size items at Feel 

1.8g Benefit Dr Feelgood  - £1.61
5ml Dead Sea Spa Magik Delicate Boosting Mask - 51p
5ml Dead Sea Spa Magik Rich Moisturiser - 51p
20ml Natio Ageless Illuminating Primer - £4.00
15ml Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream - £22.98
10ml L'Occitane Hand Cream - £2.67

So the total value of the box would be £32.28, not bad for £13.50

I have tried the Dead Sea products before and they are OK, nothing to write home about but they don't break me out or irritate my skin so they will get used. I have tried Benefit products before but not this one in particular so I am looking forward to giving this a go. It does have a lovely texture and if its good the price of the full size product is only £21.50 so not bad at all. Again, I have tried L'Occitane products before but never a hand cream so I am looking forward to using this I currently have around 15 hand creams all being used, they are all over my house, in hand bags and all over my desk at work. (and on my bosses desk as he tends to steal them!) So I shall pop this one in my current handbag and make a point of using this all the time to see how it works for me.
I have never tried Natio before. I have seen them in Debenhams but in all honestly I have always walked right past the stand and never given it a second look. I've always thought it looked a bit cheap (sorry Natio!) but I'm really excited to try this out. I love primers and it contains some rather lovely sounding ingredients like aloe vera, shea butter and organic rosehip oil so we shall see, plus if I like this the full size is only £10.00, BARGAIN!!!
Finally the Elemis, I have never tried an Elemis product before. With my skin being really sensitive and a lot of products really irritate my skin I'm always reluctant to try expensive products without trying a sample first to make sure its OK for me. I've never seen or been given an Elemis sample before so this is perfect, however I'm kind of hoping that I don't like it with the full size being over £70 for 50ml.... Eek!

So I'm hoping to have some reviews up shortly of the products and maybe a haul with some repurchases if any of them actually turn out to be any good. Hears hoping!

Thanks for reading

Lots of Love
