I was very much looking forward to receiving my Harrods edition Glossy box, I even stopped myself from reading reviews so that I could be pleasantly surprised, and I was! The box was lovely and looked very sophisticated in white. Inside were 5 decent sized samples from high end producers.
1. Clarins extra firming body cream ( available here at feelunique)
" A formula rich in regenerating and firming plant extracts which restore the skins youthful density and elasticity"
I've always quite enjoyed using Clarins products and I am going to save this one to use just before my holiday ( I blogged about here) to see if it firms anything up, and will let you know how I get on!
2. Bliss blood orange and white pepper body butter ( available here at blissworld)
" Deeply moisturising, skin softening,naturally rejuvenating body butter in mouth watering blood orange and white pepper"
When I first saw this I was quite sceptical of the white pepper bit, I like spicy smells in terms of cinnamon but I thought pepper was a bit far! however my fears were unfounded. This butter melts deliciously into the skin leaving no oily residue and smells divine ( I love citrus smells).
3. Lancome Juicy tubes - Tofffee R 'n' B ( available here at lancome)
"Ultra shiny hydrating gloss"
first things first, this smells gorgeous! I think my love for sweet scents just surpasses that of mine for citrus.This gloss is a light toffee colour with golden flecks which I think will look great on holiday with a tan or on darker skinned girls. I have 2 Lancome juicy tubes both which have practically sat unused in my make up bag for ages, I've never been a gloss person finding it too sticky and messy. A slight dab of this gloss rubbed in is fine for me but anything more and I get my usual sticky lip phobia. However if you are a fan of gloss and the stickyness isn't too much of a bother for you then give it a go!
4. Revive intensive creme lustre spf30 ( available here at spacenk)
"An intensive, firming moisturiser that helps to reduce the appearance of sagging skin"
Once again this is a moisturiser that sinks in really well leaving smooth soft skin, it has a slightly perfumed smell rather than the natural scent of the Bliss moisturiser but is still lovely. It also has spf 30 which is brilliant! even on a cloudy day those pesky UV rays are giving you wrinkles girls! This is another product which I am going to save untill closer to my holiday to start using, at £235 for a full size I'm hoping it works miracles!
5.Versace vanitas versace eau de parfum ( available here at house of fraser)
" A luxurious scent from the house of Versace. Vanitas is a rich and voluptuous fragrance with notes of tiare flower, lime and freesia"
I believed that I saved the best till last, I absolutely adore the little packaging of this! It is not one of those tacky plastic tube testers, but just and adorable Alice in wonderland shrunken size of the original. It seriously smells lovely, this is going to be my "posh" perfume, one for fancy dinners and balls as such, considering as well that I only like subtle hints of perfume then it should last!
Has anyone else received this glossy box? what did you think?
