Glossy Box; March 2012

This months GlossyBox was a collaboration with Harrods, This could only mean one thing, very fancy, very high end, great products! There were a few spoilers around i couldn't help myself but look at them, the majority of them looked really good, so i was very excited.
I got my box this morning, this month is a lush, glossy white box....


This inside of it looked like this...


The classic green Harrods ribbon and a cute little Harrods sticker.
This is what i got inside my box...


- Versace, Vaitas Versace Eau De Parfum
- Bliss, Blood Orange & White Pepper Body Butter
- Révive, Intensité Créme Lustre
- Lancome, Juicy Tubes
- Clarins, Extra-Firming Body Cream


Bliss, Blood Orange & White Pepper Body Butter 50ml This has an amazing smell! The initial smell is the Blood Orange, when smelling it from the tube, its really strong, once rubbed into the skin you can really smell the White Pepper. The consistency I'd say isn't quite that of a body butter, its more in between a body butter and a body lotion. I'm pretty sure Bliss products are available in big department stores such has Debenhams & House of Frasier. Its available on the Harrods website here for £20.50/200ml

Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream, Lifts, Tones, Comforts 30ml this has a really fresh smell to it, almost like a cucumber smell initially, afterwards it becomes like a perfumey scent, which is quite nice. It has a really thick consistency, its quite difficult to squeeze it out of the tube. It sinks into the skin beautifully leaving it really soft. Clarins is available in most department stores. Its also available on boots.com for £39.50


Révive Intensité Créme Lustre SPF30 7ml This is the only brand in the box i'd never heard of, This apparently is ' An intensive, firming, moisturiser that helps to reduce the appearance of sagging skin' on the glossy card thing, they then to go on to give us an application tip 'Apply in the morning after cleanser, toner and serum' which is what i normally do with my moisturiser, but thanks for the tip! the cream doesn't really have any smell to it, just like that general moisturiser smell, it has a proper thick consistency almost like butter. Once applied to the skin, it has an odd smell, is this just me?! Its available on the Harrods website, for the jaw dropping price of....... £235.00/60ml !!!!

Sorry For The Blurry Photo.


Lancome Juicy Tubes, Toffee R 'n' B 93 7ml From my other posts you might have seen I'm not a big lip gloss wearer, I've never even tested Lancome juicy tubes before, but this one smells AH-mazing! Its incredibly sweet, but i just can stop smelling it (it also tastes as good as it smells!) I have applied it and so far so good, its a bit sticky but not so that i have to take it off straight away. its a really nice sheer glitter gloss as well, not so shimmery that you couldn't wear it during the day. Again Lancome is available in most department stores, also larger boots stores, you can buy from the Harrods website here, for £15.50/30ml



Last but not least, The perfume sample, in my box i received Vanitas by Versace 4.5ml. I cant describe scents to save my life, so on the card it says 'A luxurious scent from the House of Versace. Vanitas is a rich and voluptuous fragrance with notes of tiare flower, lime and freesia.' It smells gorgeous! and the little bottle is so cute! Again i believe Versace perfumes are available in most perfume retailers, its available here, on the Harrods site for £45.00/30ml. I'd highly recommend giving it a spritz next time your in boots or Debenhams.

So, although I'm not one to complain, i was slightly disappointed at TWO body creams, thought i know full well I'll get through both of them easily, it would have been nice for some variety as i know there is also a hair care product floating around. Other than that teenie moan, i am very pleased with my box and the products i received.
Another well done Glossy Box, i am yet to get a box that I'm completely disappointed with.

What products did you get in your GlossyBox this month?

Lots of Love
