A few nights ago I was luckily enough to be in attendace at the Glossybox and Harrods collaboration launch in the beautiful Laduree cafe. Glossy Box have teamed up with Harrods (a UK department store, for those who are unaware, not to baby you if you do know!) to produce, what I'd say is, the Perfect Glossy Box. This box is what I expexcted when I started susbscribing to beauty boxes originally. Its a actual sample box- Small but true sample sizes from high end department store brands. I think far too many people have come to expect large/full size items because we've been spoilt by beauty boxes so much in the past. Personally I'd much rather have a box like this, The idea of trying products appeals to me way more than getting  full sizes of things I wont like and will forever lurk around my bedroom unused!

I do think the of Harrods may have been why they were able to pull off such a high end box, especially with the inclusion of the Mini Burberry Lipstick. I had alot of people tweet me saying they wanted to re-subscribe after I tweeted about the Burbery Lipstick, I do think things like that will lure people to come back to Glossy, especially after last months box (notice how I didnt post about it...). I personally would never wear the colour if the lipstick that comes in the box, although I know my Mother would like it so its off to her! I've said it before but I personally dont like makeup in beauty boxes, I know the colours I like, and generally they arent the ones I seem to get!

Overall Im happy with my seclection this month as the Ojon serum is right up my street and I do like the Fendi Perfume. I tried the Ojon serum when I did my hair today for a glossy shine after styling it. The Burberry lipstick isnt for me, neither are the skincare samples (although I did actually use them today). I will use the Clarins firming lotion though as I've tried it before and actually liked it, wasnt overlly fussed on buying it but its nice to try it again!

However all pessimistic thoughts aside it is an amazing box and alot of effort has gone into the production and the finishing touches. Id personally say its up there with my favourite Glossy Box (the September 2011 box). I just feel they really got in right in terms of value, products and variation. There are four different variations of boxes you could recieve and according to the people at Glossy Box each has a similar value. I do hope the subscribers to this box are happy this month as I do think they went to alot of effort with the Harrods Collaboration. Kudos for them for pulling such an amazing collaboration with a major UK name! I always find the themed Glossy Boxes to be among my favourites!
The products in this months box include: Fendi Fan di Fendi Perfume, Narciso Rodriguez for Her Perfrume, Revive Intensite Creme Lustre SPF30, SK-11 Skin Signature, Valentino Valentina Perfume, Bliss Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter, YSl Forever Youth Liberator, Versace Vanitas Versace Perfume, Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Moisture Bath & Shower, Molton Brown Vitalising Vitamin AB+C Bath and Shower, Burberry Beauty Minature Lip colour in Rosewood No 4 or Copper no 202, Ojon Damage Reverse, Erno Laszlo The Hollywood Collection, Clarins Extra Firming Body Cream
For more of my thoughts on sample boxes and which I reccomend see this post.

  14. The Ojon oil is amazing, I already have one so I'm not fussed if I get it in my box. A top tip for the oil would be too put it in your conditioner when washing your hair, makes your hair super soft and shiny

  16. I'd say there was a misprint on your card of the products you received. It shows 2 Burberry Lipsticks instead of the Fendi perfume. I received the same box as you, my card was correct though. Delighted to receive the Ojon hair serum :)

  17. I had been considering signing up for a few months, when I seen this month's was Harrods I was straight in there, so glad I did. It arrived today with products I will be happy to try. Love the colour of the lipstick. I also got the Clarins and YSL serum - lucky me!

    How you feel about make up is generally how I feel about perfume in these boxes, I know what I like and have so many already...still, quite a good handbag size. excitement... x

  18. I received my two boxes this morning, yes I know a bit greedy but was so looking forward to this box that I thought I'd treat myself and buy 2. If there were things in there I didn't want, I can always give them to my mum or daughter. I was really hoping to get 2 different boxes to better my chances of getting the Burberry lipstick. Well, excitement, they both arrived together and drum roll please, they are exactly the same and the same box as yours. Initially I was disappointed but then I thought, hang on, its a really good box and this gives me a real chance to try out all the products. The hair oil is full size, according to the Harrods website and retailing at £16, makes the rest of the box free. I love skincare products so am really looking forward to trying my two Erno Laszlo hollywood packs. Overall I'm quite a happy bunny today and sorry Mum and daughter, you missed out this month. x
