I did a little yelp of excitement when my first Glossy Box landed on my doorstep. Especially as it was of the eagerly anticipated Harrods Limited Edition variety – eek! I was a little disappointed with the packaging as I was expecting the iconic green and gold.
All that ribbon and tissue paper is like a big juicy steak to a hungry person – let me at it!
Tah dah! Ze contents: Bliss Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter, Leighton Denny High Performance Nail Colour in Honey Trap, ReVive Intensite Creme Lustre, Versace Vanitas perfume and Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream.
All of the products are a decent size and you certainly get your £10 worth – they just don’t scream Harrods to me. Most of these products you can find in Boots.
The Bliss body butter has the most divine smell. I’m a bit lax when it comes to body skin care but this stuff is like being dunked into a glass of Tropicana – gorgeous! The perfume and the other creams are nice but I don’t think I’d buy them at their full price. I’m not in love with the nail varnish. The colour is nice but it takes quite a few coats to be opaque.
All in all I’m happy with my first box but I’ll be keeping a close eye on future boxes to see if they’re worth the money.
