A while back I received this Urban Retreat Ultimate Gift With Purchase set, which is essentially £110 worth of products for free when you spend £150 or more, and I gave myself a few weeks to test some of the products properly. Unfortunately I think I'm a bit late with the review as I can't seem to find this gift set on the site anymore, however I thought I would still review the products as some of them are FAB and you can always get full sized versions :-) Above you can see the full contents of the package, which are all sample sized. These include (links to full-sized products): Nars Lip Gloss Gold Digger, Thalgo Cleansing Water 2 in 1, Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, Delarom Face Cleansing Gel, Valmont Renewing Pack, Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask, Cosmetics 27 Plasma 27, Unite 7 Seconds Conditioner, Pureology Precious Oil, Guam Cellulite Formula Seaweed Mud, Keraskin Le Body Serum.
Nars Gold Digger Lip Gloss
From the products in this gift set, the one I use daily right now is the Pureology hair oil - it smells amazing and a little goes a long way. You just need to be careful as if too much is applied, it looks oily. I also like the Laura Mercier primer - I've never actually had/used a primer before this so I can't really judge whether it's good or not, but it feels very nice on my skin and smells great too! The Thalgo Cleansing Water is absolutely amazing on my skin. Even though my skin isn't super sensitive, pretty much every cleansing product I've tried in my life gave me a burning sensation which was awful, by this stage I kind of "expect" it as it's so normal, but this cleanser was so friendly on my skin. Unite 7 Seconds Conditioner is also a product I've been using quite a bit - it detangles my hair before brushing it out.

Thanks to the awesome Urban Retreat Beautique people for gifting me this set, I am more and more interested in beauty products lately and can't wait to do more reviews!
