March Harrods Glossybox

Hi lovelies,

I wasn't sure I'd be able to get this post up today as my little Macbook Pro is ill and has had to go to a Genius.

Anyways I received my Harrods Glossybox yesterday, and while I was impressed with the price of the items I recived, alongside a couple, I wasn't entirely satisfied with the contents.

So as you can see there is a nice range of products, however three of these are seen as moisturisers which for me ruins the variety of these boxes. Yes I know you can't pick and choose but it would be nice to have a mix of products not just a box of moisturisers.

Versace Vanitas Perfume - 4.5ml Sample

I was quite happy with receiving this, when I sprayed it I did really like the smell. I think this would be great for a 'night out' fragrance, and has quite a grown up smell (if that makes sense). I may wear this to a wedding I'm attending on Monday as I can pop it into my bag if it needs topping up.

I think the full retail price for the 50ml is £22 which infact is a really great price for the product, and I have seen some fragrance of the same size retailing for a lot more.

Bliss Body Butter

I got this moisturiser in the blood orange and red pepper. At first when reading the description I wasn't 100% sure as it didn't sound that lovely, however after applying I couldn't smell any of the pepper and the orange was lovely. Made me want to eat an orange.

I like the size of this product, quite generous and is a great size to pop in my bag. I think this retails at £20 which for me is a bit expensive for what the product is, but hey I like the sample.

Lancome Juicy Tube

Unfortunatley when I first saw this my reaction was not another lipgloss, I got the toffee flavoured gloss which when applied reminds me of popcorn. I was expecting to hate it when applied because I'm not a big toffee lover but I do like it.

The colour is quite nice, a lovely shimmer and my mom wasn't sure it would suit my skin tone but after applying it, I found it looked very different on the lips to in the tube.

Clarins Extra Firming Body Cream

My inital thought with this product: I'm only 20. Now yes they say that you should start early with anti-aging creams but for me I don't mind waiting. So I've gave my mom this product for her to try out, as I find myself with no use for it.

Revive Intensite creme luster

Again another creme designed to help older skin, and reduce the appearance of sagging. Even though I'm not happy with this product as I personally see no use for it I couldn't belive the price tag for the 60ml of this product - over £200!!!!

This has also been given to my mom to try out.

Anyways that is what I received in this months Glossybox, I would have loved to try out the Burberry lipstick.

Have you had this months box? What do you think?
