The Harrods Edition Glossy BoxGood evening all, thanks for stopping by :)
I wanted to do a little post of this months Glossy Box cos I wasn't particularly impressed by any of the products I received. It's not that I'm really fussy or anything (except that I am) but I seem to have received a lot of duds over the last few months. I'm 26. Why do they keep sending my anti-ageing stuff?!
Of course I enjoy the surprise element of the whole Glossy Box thing but sometimes I wish I could select the products before they send them. You know, like from a website or something where they keep a list of the available items. Hmmm, that sounds suspiciously like regular old internet shopping. Just ignore me. You can wait til after you've read this of course...
Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream 30ml
This is my least favourite product, mostly because I really dislike the brand. I can't think of a single Clarins product that's impressed me and this is as meh as the rest of their stuff. It looks, smells and feels ok but I have enough totally average products in my collection so wouldn't dream of paying full price for this
YSL Forever Youth Liberator
I feel I can't really give an accurate opinion on this because I don't have wrinkles yet. I'm happy to use nice hydrating lotions and potions in the hope that they keeps wrinkles at bay but these kinda serums can be waay to stimulating on my spot-prone skin so I find it best to avoid them. Cute packaging, loving the teensy pipette applicator cos it makes me feel all sciency
Burberry Lip Mist in Copper
If I saw this at a beauty counter I wouldn't even bother swatching it as it looks like a horrible, unflattering brick-orange shade. Now that I've tried it I'd still avoid it. The shade isn't nearly as offensive as it looks in the tube but it's still too brown toned for my skin. The texture feels nice but I'd never wear this
Narciso Rodriguez For Her
This smells like old woman to me. I know scent is really individual but this is one of those heavy, cloying, floral smells that reminds me of sitting next to old ladies on public transport. I don't have anything against old ladies you understand, I'd just prefer not to wear the same perfume as them
Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Moisture bath and shower gel
The second ingredient listed is sodium laureth sulfate. I think we're all doing our best to try to avoid these kind of cheap foaming agents because it means we aren't left feeling all dry and tight after a shower. With a price tag of £18 for 300ml I'll definitely be sticking to The Body Shop or L'Occitane for my shower gels. Oh and this doesn't even smell very nice, which is one of my non-negotiable requirements for washy scrubby shower goodies
Did you fare any better with your Glossy Box? Or are any of the products things you already love? ♥
