Unveiling "The CEW (UK) Beauty Awards 2012 Box"

I am calling this post "unveiling" coz I must be one of the first few bloggers writing about it... :) :) :)

Most of you might have already heard of “Latest in Beauty"…  Its almost like glossybox… but they do limited edition beauty boxes sometimes…. So this special edition box contains samples of the award winners of CEW (UK) Awards. You can read more about the awards here.. click 
The overall contents of the box are supposed to be worth about £50… doesn’t matter it’s a great opportunity to try multiple products at £8.95 + postage.. So I am super excited .. one for the contents… two for the time taken for delivery… its not that I received this month end like one of the beauty boxes... cough cough.. you know which one ;)
This box contains 8 samples:
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (30ml tube plus muslin cloth)
L'Occitane Immortale Brightening Hand Care SPF15 (15ml)
Percy & Reed Dry Conditioner (50ml)
Elie Saab Eau De Parfum (1ml)
Nails Inc Porchester Square nail polish (10ml)
Mont Blanc Legend Eau de Toilette (1.2ml)
Elemis Pro-Collagen Body Cream (50ml)
Benefit The Porefessional (7.5ml) OR Weleda Pomegranate Firming Day Cream (7ml).... I got the weleda one… L slightly disappointed.. but thats ok...
The box looked like this from exterior..

and the interior when you open it

The packaging is not bad but not as refined as a glossybox…. I have taken pics with MUA primer so that you can assess the size of the samples…
            Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish

                                           L'Occitane Immortale Brightening Hand Care SPF15 

                                                      Percy & Reed Dry Conditioner

                                                        Elemis Pro-Collagen Body Cream
                                          Weleda Pomegranate Firming Day Cream

Mont Blanc Legend Eau de Toilette and Elie Saab Eau De Parfum... these are just vials.. sufficient for sniffing... better than as much you can do in a perfume store... cute packaging though :)
there are 2 vouchers along with the samples...

The left one is a exclusive gift of a foaming wash or face water when you buy a product worth £20 or more from L'occitane... I am hoping to buy one of their night creams soon.. so guess will make use of this.

The right side one is 50% OFF the fakebake self tan... which you can also avail by clicking the link here...

You can order this box from here(click it..). As I write this post, it shows out of stock.. donno if they will re-stock.
In conclusion, all the products are definitely usable… sufficient to form first impressions whether to buy a full size or not… also no colour products that could suit one particular skin tone… definitely a bargain... I have not swatched any of them here coz the post would be too long then… Do leave a comment if you want me to do a review on any of these specifically…
