GlossyBox March – Harrods Edition

Hi everyone!

I hope you’re having a good start to the week! 🙂

So today I finally received the eagerly anticipated “Harrods Edition” of this month’s GlossyBox! I’ve read mixed reviews about this box, so I really wanted to see it in person and determine how I feel about it.

Glossy Box March Harrods Edition 1

Since I had already seen some posts about March’s GlossyBox I knew what to expect when it came to the packaging. A sleek white, “glossy” box with GlossyBox’s trademark logo stamped in the centre, and Harrods’s signature printed just below. I’ve come to really enjoy reusing these boxes, once I’ve emptied the contents! They make for some fab make up storage and I like that I’ve had a range of colours so far!

Anyway on to the products..

Glossy Box March Harrods Edition 2

This is what I received in my Harrod’s Edition GlossyBox.

Glossy Box March Harrods Edition 3

1) VERSACE – VANITAS VERSACE EAU DE PARFUM – The Versace perfume is really nicely scented, and this is actually a smell I’d normally go for but it would have been nice to have received some more beauty/makeup products.

2) BLISS – BLOOD ORANGE AND WHITE PEPPER BODY BUTTER – I had never really considered Bliss as a “luxury” product, so I was a bit surprised when I received this Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter in my box. Despite the ingredients in the name (to me it sounded like a bit of a strange combination), it’s actually just a light orangey fragrance which is always nice and refreshing!

3) RÉVIVE – INTENSITÉ CRÈME LUSTRE SPF30 – Lately we’ve been experiencing more sunshine, so I have been looking into purchasing a moisturiser which provides SPF so I’m keen to try out Révive’s moisturiser. It feels light and non greasy, but I’ve yet to try it out properly so I’ll keep you all posted!

4) LANCÔME – TEINT MIRACLE FOUNDATION – Lancôme’s Teint Miracle foundation is a surprisingly good match to my skin tone (I figured I might have been too dark for this). I’ve heard some really nice things about this foundation, and had thought about trying it for a while so it’s all worked out quite well! 🙂

5) CLARINS – EXTRA FIRMING BODY CREAM – Lastly I received yet another Clarins product – the ‘Extra Firming Body Cream’. As much as I appreciate that Clarins is considered a higher end product, it would have been nice to have received something different! I’ll still give it equal opportunity though because to be fair the other 2 Clarins products I received were face creams – ‘Extra Firming Day and Night Cream’ which I received in my January GlossyBox (see here)

Out of all the products, I’m really happy to have received the Lancôme Teint Miracle foundation and the Révive Intensité Crème Lustre SPF30! Overall I’m content with what I’ve received, but I can see why this box has been a little over-hyped. There are definitely some products which I would have preferred such as the Burberry Lipstick or the SKII Skin Signature moisturiser. I do look forward to seeing what next month has in store, and I hope it’s going to be more of a variety of products! I have been looking into other subscriptions though, just to keep my options open!

So what are your thoughts on this month’s box? Any products you like/dislike?

Love Sophia xo

    So disappointed with mine 🙁 I got almost the same box as you but got a Juicy Tube lipgloss instead of the foundation. I found someone willing to trade me their Burberry lippy for my Clarins though which is a result!
    I just think the hype was too much and they didn’t live up to it. 🙁

      Yeah I read your review hun! Shame you were disappointed with yours. I was generally happy with mine, but I’ve received so many moisturisers, so it would have been nice to get something different! It’s good that you found someone to swap the Burberry lipstick with you though! 😀 It looks incredibly nice! 🙂 are you considering a different beauty box for next month then? xx

        Well I’m already subbed to Carmine and Joliebox, I really like Carmine and will get my first Joliebox next month. I’m gonna stay with Glossybox for another month, see what April is like, because their first box was really nice.
        Are you subbed to GB only or do you get others too? 😀

        Oh cool! 🙂 Yeah I’m only with GB at the moment, but been thinking about others though as I’ve heard good things! I actually considered Carmine first, but in the end went with Glossy Box! So have you got any Revlon Lip Butters yet? 😀 xx

    I think you received a lovely Glossybox with this Harrods box. Other ones I’ve seen had a nice but dinky Burberry lipstick and you received a Versace Perfume 🙂 Can you describe what the scents are in the Versace Perfume and also let me know if the Bliss Body Butter is any good? I don’t have either of these but they look, sound interesting. Thanks for writing about this box.

      Thanks Karen! I’ll definitely get back to you about the perfume and the Bliss Body Butter when I’ve had a chance to try them out properly 🙂 xx

    Wow! The foundation is a bit epic. I’ve heard some really mixed reviews about this month’s box but it looks like you got a good one! xx

      Yeah overall I’m pleased! 😀 Just wish I got something else instead of 1 of the moisturisers, lol. I can’t wait to try out the foundation though! 🙂 are you signed up for any beauty boxes hun? xx

  4. 13 March, 2012 / 12:31 pm

    so jealous! you got a fab glossybox! wasn’t too happy with mine 🙁

      Aw no 🙁 I just read your post about your box. I think the boxes aren’t mixed particularly well so some people get a lot of moisturisers etc more than others. Are you signed up with any other boxes? Lovely blog btw! xx

        I receive Carmine boxes and just signed for SheSaidBeauty too! Looking forward to next month’s ones 🙂

        Sounds fab! I’ll definitely have to check out SheSaidBeauty, I’ve not heard of this box! xx

    We got the EXACT same box! I was so happy with the foundation, and surprised that it matched my skintone so well. I also liked the perfume, at least we got a decent amount of it.
    See my Vlog review 🙂

      Yeah I was really pleased with the foundation too! 🙂 I wasn’t expecting it since I thought there were only 2 versions of the box! I also really like the RéVive moisturiser as well xx

      Oh that’s really bad! :\ Have you tried tweeting them on Twitter? Cos I see that sometimes they reply to customer service queries on there! Can’t believe they’re not replying to your emails/voicemail though! x
