March Glossybox - Harrods Edition

I wasn't going to do any Glossybox posts, but this one has had divided opinions. So I thought I'd stick in my pennies worth!

I didn't actually receive mine until Friday as I had forgotten to update my card details. By Friday I was desperate to receive it!

Heres what was in my box:

1 Versace - Vanitas Versace Eau de Parfum

A luxurious scent from the House of Versace. Vanitas is a rich and voluptuous fragrance with notes of tiare flower, lime and freesia

This perfume is such a lovely scent. A bit heavy for me for the day time, but I will definitely use this next time I go out. Its a pretty decent size sample of 4.5ml.

2. Bliss - Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter

Deeply moisturising, skin softening, naturally rejuventating body butter in mouth watering blood orange and white pepper.

You can see by the photo, I have used all of this. I love the orange scent of this and how its made my skin feel. I'm such a fan of body butters and this ticked all the boxes for me, it works well and smells gorgeous. If I ever spot this on my travels, I will definitely buy it.

3. Revive - Intensite Creme Lustre SPF30

An intensive, firming moisturiser that helps to reduce the appearance of sagging skin

I have only used this once, it sank into the skin really quickly and left it feeling moisturised.

4. Clarins - Extra Firming Body Cream

A formula rich in regenerating and firming plant extracts which restore the skins youthful density and elasticity

I've not used this yet. But, having never tried anything Clarins, I am looking forward to!

Leighton Dennt - High Performance Nail Colour, Honey Trap

A warm clay shade in a cream finish with a natural tone, it creates a classic look similar to a french manicure with only one colour

This was the star of the box for me. It's like they thought 'Jo will LOVE this'. I absolutely love this kind of colour. It reminds me a lot of Essie Chinchilly or OPI Skull and Glossbones. I used this over the weekend and it lasted well.

On my nails:

All in all, I was very pleased with my Glossybox. I suppose one negative was having 2 body creams in, the box could've done with a bit more variety. However, I was very pleased with both the body creams. I was dying to get the Molton Brown Shower Gel that was in other boxes, but I'll let that slide ;) I'll just have to hope it turns up in TK max one day!

Hope you enjoyed this, thanks for reading xx


  1. I got all the same as you apart from the nail varnish, I got a juicy tube lip gloss instead

    For me I felt as this was meant to be the ''Harrods'' box it should have been a lot more exciting then a few creams and a tiny perfume

    Love reading your thoughts though

    Over on my blog I am having a MAC lipstick give away, I would love for you to enter
    you can win the MAC lipstick in the colour of your choice :o)


    1. I see what you mean, I wonder if I hadn't got a couple of really lovely products in I'd have thought differently. But, all in all, I was pleased.

      A great give away, will have a look!
      Thanks for reading x
