This month Glossybox have teamed up with Harrods to bring you a limited edition box! The samples in the box are all products which can be found in Harrods Beauty Hall, so this box is a bunch of designer wonderfulness! As a Glossybox ambassador I was invited along to Harrods to munch on macaroons with the wonderful Glossybox team to learn about the collab and to preview the boxes!
Inside my box I received -
Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Moisture Bath & Shower – My whole family are complete lovers of Molton Brown (we have their Naranji hand washes next to every sink) but I haven’t used any of their shower gels before, so it was nice to see this in my box. This smells absolutely lovely – a very feminine mature scent so I’m looking forward to using this!
YSL Forever Youth Liberator Serum – I’m always a little weary when it comes to skincare products in beauty boxes as my skin is so acne prone I’m worried to try out new things, but with a name like YSL on this little serum I’m definitely going to give it a go around my eye area. A full size of this is £60 (for 30mls) and the packaging is lovely.
Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream – I can’t say that I need a firming body cream just yet, but I’m going to start applying this to my thighs and chest area now. This is actually my first ever Clarins product so I’m looking forward to seeing what all the hype is about!
Narcisco Rodriguez For Her EDP – Perfume samples are always a little tricky, but obviously the point of them is to try them out and see how they smell on your skin for a week or so to see if you like it. I’d say I’ve received around 10 perfume samples in the last few months and I’ve never thought about buying a full sized one (out of the samples I’ve tried)… up until now!
Oh my, ladies, this perfume is to die for! I absolutely LOVE this smell and I feel like it suits my personality completely. It’s a really familiar smell which I know I’ve smelt before - (probably on a posh woman on the tube) and I just think it oozes sophistication and glamour. This costs £55 for a full size, so I’ll definitely be saving up for one of these.
Burberry Miniature Lip Cover in Rosewood 04 – A MINI BURBERRY LIPSTICK, wa-wa-wooaah!!! The packaging of this mini lipstick is so intricate and beautiful that I didn’t want to use it! My Dad has been working with Burberry for the past few years, (building their new website) and I’ve asked him countless number of times to bring me home a Burberry lipstick (he still hasn’t), so I’m happy to have received this! The colour I got isn’t one I’d usually wear, it’s a dark brownish pink, but it looks quite natural on my lips so its okay!
What I think – I really love this box – the products inside feel and look really luxurious and I’m sure any woman would love this box to try out (perfect for Mother’s Day!).
The perfume sample in this Glossy Box is a big reminder that not everything will be for everyone, but you have to try out a few samples before you find something perfect for you, so I’d like to say thank you Harrods and Glossy Box for introducing me to this Narcisco Rodriguez fragrance!
Other brands in the box include Bliss, Fendi, Valentino, SK-11, Revive, Versace and Ojon!
As usual, the box is £10 (plus p&p) and you can sign up on the Glossybox website!
