March Glossybox: Harrods Edition


Here is the much awaited Harrods Glossybox. 
I can not explain my excitement when this arrived. I just couldn't wait to open it up and see what goodies were inside. Unfortunately I had uni so I have had to wait until afterwards so that I could share it with you guys too. 
I had actually cancelled my subscription with Glossybox due to feeling that for the majority, I wasn't fussed about the products I was getting and would personally rather have the money. However, after seeing reviews leaked about what the options were for getting in your box this month, I just had to resubscribe and get my hands on one of these!
So lets see what I thought:




(1) Versace - Vanitas Versace Eau de Parfum. A luxurious scent from the House of Versace Vanitas is a rich and voluptuous fragrance with notes of tiare flower, lime and freesia.

My opinion - I am a true lover of perfume, so when I saw this in my box I was so relieved. I took it out of its box and there was a beautiful, cute little bottle inside. I couldn't wait to see what it smelt like so I dabbed a bit on my wrist and I genuinely do like the scent. It is quite different from everything else I own and I wouldn't particularly say it was an every day scent, but for a nice evening out it would fit perfectly.

(2) Bliss - Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter. Deeply Moisturising, skin softening, naturally rejuvenating body butter in mouth watering blood orange and white pepper.

My opinion - From this moment on the box goes down hill. I am afraid I don't have to much to say about the products as I won't be trying them out and will include them in my giveaway which will be opened soon to celebrate me hitting 50 followers. Basically, I really don't need another body butter and there are two body butter/cream products in this box which limits the variety. Plus I will come onto my next disappointment in the next opinion below.

(3) Révive - Intensité Créme Lustre SPF30. An intensive firming moisturiser that helps to reduce the appearance of sagging skin. Apply in the morning after cleanser, toner and serum.

My opinion - I'm 21. I don't have sagging skin. I know it is luck of the draw when it comes to what you receive but surely the beauty profile should come into it somewhere. 

(4) Lancôme - Juicytubes - Toffee r'n'b 93. Ultra shiny hydrating lip gloss.

My opinion - I don't like lip gloss so this is another product going in my giveaway. I am positive that it is a great product for anyone that does like lip gloss but it is just not for me, and again, I guess it's luck of the draw.

(5) Clarins - Extra-Firming Body Cream. A formula rich in regenerating and firming plan extracts which restore the skin's youthful density and elasticity.

My opinion - Finally we have yet another body cream. Plus its a firming one, and again, I don't have a problem with sagging skin because I am only 21. 

This box was a huge disappointment to me as I had only rejoined to receive this box after reading so many great reviews about different products that were available this month. I am afraid I will be re-cancelling my membership as I just don't think that Glossybox is the right Beauty Box for me. I understand that it is luck of the draw, and these are great products for someone, but just not me. And I would have thought that the beauty profile would have showed that. I have seen other boxes very recently that have been amazing and I would have loved to have receive the products inside, but I rarely do get the products that I want.

  1. I love that you get a proper little bottle of the perfume, not just one of those tiny samples so that's a nice touch.
    But apart from that, like you I'd be feeling disappointed if I'd received this box. Clarins products are really good, so why not just include a more general cleanser/moisturiser that more people could get use out of?! Crazzyy! xx

    1. Yeah I really appreciate the perfume bottle, but I think that the product could have been mixed up better. 3 creams/butters in one box isn't much of a variety xxo

  2. You got exactly the same as me. Yet again I'm disappointed with it because I didn't get sent the good products - I don't need the Revive or Clarins products either and I don't wear lipgloss. Urgh why didn't we get Ojon or the mini Burberry lipstick? :( I've unsubscribed yet again... although I had unsubscribed before this but it didn't go through so I've paid for and been sent a box I really don't want. I'm sticking to Carmine as I was really impressed with them last month!
