The Harrods Edition Glossybox March 2012

Hello lovelies

I hope you are well!

I received my Glossybox* last week but it has been stuck at Royal Mail so i do apologise for the delayed post! As you are all proably well aware by now, this months Glossybox is a special Harrods edition. As always, i had to have a sneak peek at all of the other combinations for this limited edition box on other blogs and there has been quite a few stand out products, especially the mini Burberry lipstick (Which i unfortunately didnt receieve!)

Heres the contents of my box this month:
♥ Versace Vanitas Versace EDP ♥
This is quite a hefty sample (4.5ml) and housed in the most gorgeous little glass bottle perfect for popping into your handbag. It smells floral but luxurious and definitely not sweet. I was shocked to find out that 30ml of this perfume costs £45 so it is not the cheapest perfume on the market, making this sample worth around £7 compared to the full size price.
♥ Bliss Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter ♥
Bliss is a range that i have always admired from afar and never used any of the products from the line. This is the blood orange and white pepper body butter. It comes in the same kind of tube and packaging as the full size version which i always like when it comes to samples and you get 50ml which is a quarter of the size of a full size tube that retails for £20, making this worth around £5. I love mini body butters for holidays and nights away as you never need any more than this for a mini break so i will definitely be keeping this aside.  
♥ Revive Intensite Creme ♥
I have never heard of or used Revive products is an intensive, firming moisturiser that claims to help reduce the appearance of sagging skin. This definitely fits into a Harrods Edition box as a little search showed that a 60ml pot of this cream actually retails for £235 believe it or not so the 7ml size sample pot that you get in this months box seems quite a lot of product in comparison! In line with the price of 60ml this sample is worth roughly a whopping £27, looking forward to trying this one (although never being able to repurchase!)
♥ Leighton Denny Nail Colour ♥
I dont think i have ever used Leighton Denny polishes either although always heard and read a lot about them. This shade in 3 times a lady is a pale pink that goes on quite sheer in one coat but looks nice as a simple, manicured nail. I plan on building it up opaque (which im guessing will take around 3 coats) and thinking it will be a gorgeous, baby pink. This is a 4.6ml sample size with full size 12ml Leighton Denny polishes retailing for £11, making this sample worth around £4. 
♥ Clarins Extra Firming Body Cream ♥
I was really happy to see a good sized (30ml) Clarins product in this months Glossybox. This is the extra firming body cream that can be used all over the body to help restore skins youthful density and elasticity. 200ml retails for £39.50 making this sample worth around £6. 
According to my calculations this months box is worth around £50 so not bad considering you pay £10 plus £2.95 shipping. I do really like all the products in this months box and there isnt one thing that i wont use. The stand out products for me are the Clarins Extra Firming body cream and also the Versace Vanitas perfume as its always nice to have a nice scent in a decent sized sample bottle.

  3. I have enjoyed the samples from this month's Glossy Box but I always am left feeling a bit disappointed... they hype the boxes too much I think! Next month I think I'm going to try Carmine for a change, although I may go back to Glossybox :) thanks for the review xx

  6. I got pretty much the same box as you, except I received the juicy tube instead of the nail polish. I liked this months box a lot, I must admit. I just wish we hadn't received it so early! Long wait till the next one... x
