The Harrods Glossybox and Giveaway

Hey Ladies,

I haven't really posted on my blog my thoughts on the beauty box phenomenon mainly because I think everyone else covers it on a monthly basis thoroughly enough & I don't want to bore you. I initially filmed a video which I still stand by but having been sent the Glossybox every month without posting on it I have to admit my opinion has slightly changed on the matter mainly because I am yet to be really disappointed by a box which was my main critique in the video.

This month sees Glossybox collaborate with Harrods which I was extremely excited about when it was announced, I was so excited I subscribed to the service in order to do a giveaway so that one of my readers could have one as well (details at the bottom of the post)

My Thoughts on The Harrods Box
I personally think my box speaks for itself ... it's amazing! I haven't tried Ojon products before so I seriously cannot wait to slap this on my hair and love the Burberry lipstick the shade is pretty just a flattering dark pink nothing I would have bought myself but I like the finish it gives to my lips. The perfume is a decent sample which I think is more citrusy than floral which is the description but it's a nice light fragrance perfect for this time of the year, Clarins body care is always a welcome sight as I have loads of samples at my boyfriends as they always deliver so great for travelling although I hate the perfume Clarins use in their products. Finally the Erno Laszlo facial creams are nothing I've tried before but skin care really is a fetish of mine so I will give them a try but there's not enough to form a proper opinion on the range.

I personally feel people have come to expect full size products every month which is partly due to the Beauty Box producers providing them in many boxes so there's been some backlash at time from customers, to be honest it is a little unrealistic to expect full size product in the boxes as the whole concept behind the idea is they are sample boxes to try different brands you may not have tried before so the Harrods Glossybox is a true reflection on a successful sample box, decent sized samples of high end brands that you may have not heard of before or may have been put off by the price of the full sized product without trying it first!

For example the Burberry Lipstick, I have never tried anything from the Burberry Beauty line & although the shade isn't one I'd choose myself, I wouldn't have bought a full size one online as I have no idea the finish, the smell, taste etc now I have tried it I will happily purchase a full size one as the quality & finish is brilliant although the taste & smell isn't my favourite.

Well done Glossybox this month I say!

Now on to the giveaway all you need to do is be a subscriber & leave a comment of some sort with your twitter name or some way to contact you if you're the winner,  you will receive an unopened box (the one I purchased!) I've had to open the outer packaging to remove my billing & address details but I have no idea what is in the box & the items inside could be completely different to the ones above just in case you're thinking you got this one!!

Giveaway ends 31st March 2012

Good Luck & get entering!!
