Glossybox + Harrods = Love

I was very excited for March's Glossybox and almost didn't get it! I cancelled my card and got a new one last month and forgot to change my details, but luckily they sent me an email and so it was all sorted! As you can see Glossybox teamed up with Harrods and I have so much love for it. The box is obviously white as you can see above, as its another special editions. I've only got two normal light pink glossyboxes since I started, the rest are special editions, so they are red, hot pink and now white. I went to Harrods last summer and it was amazing to just walk around the place, I loved the toy floor and the pet floor, where they had some puppies. In the end I just bought some lovely biscuits in tins as I was a poor student at the time. 

They even sent out a little magazine which is full of skincare advice, pretty pictures and product reviews.

I liked the green ribbon but couldn't really get a nice picture of it. Not sure what to do with it but I collect ribbons which I never use for anything because they are too pretty! 

Now onto the review! As you can see, this month Glossybox gave out six items instead of five.

Molton Brown Vitalising Vitamin AB+C Bath & Shower - It smells lovely and was nice to use in a shower but I really want to use it in a bath and relax in it to see how it properly works.

Skii Skin Signature - I'm a bit too scared to use this just yet as I can't remember when or where, but someone told me not to use anti aging products when you're young and don't need them. My mum would like to try it so I might just give it to her, but I've seen on other glossybox reviews that they're using it. So who knows? Do you know if you use use anti aging products when you're in your early twenties?

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara - Oh wow oh wow oh wow. The brush is big and oddly shaped. I don't know the proper terms but its big then skinny then big again etc, and it makes me lashes super long! Or look longer anyway. It's not clumpy and I just wish the sample was bigger. I want the full sized mascara!

Shu Uemura Cleasnisin Beauty Oil - It's a bit too oily, but there is a hint in the name that it will be! I didn't really notice any difference, but my skins not at all that great, got a whole load of problems with it right now, so maybe trying out loads of different creams and cleansing things isn't a good idea right now.

Valentino Valentina Eau De Parfum - This Perfume is stunning! It's a light floral fragrance and it smells so  heavenly and feminine. I feel like it's a proper grown up perfume if that makes sense. I definitely want a full sized version of this, but I am not made of money so maybe as a christmas present if I drop enough hints to certain people!

Clarins Extra Firming Body Cream - I love Clarins products, and I am using this but I've forgotten to use t every day so I haven't seen any results yet. It's a thick cream, with a nice faint smell and makes your skin feel soft where you've used it.

So there was the Harrods box and my opinions on it. I know I'm not very good at reviewing them but I'm not a beauty reviewer but I do like glossyboxes :D I really love the perfume and the mascara and just wish I had more money to buy them!


  1. what is it about packaging that makes everything so much more fun and pretty? lol

    it seems the whole blog world is getting on board with the "birch box" thing but this one seems a bit fancier!

  2. I don't know, but I am a sucker for packaging and boxes and tins of all kinds lol.

    I'm really interested in other beauty boxes, but I do like the style of glossybox better, I know, I'm shallow!
