The Harrods Glossybox

I frankly was quite excited for this one as who doesn't love Harrod's eh and secondly because of the niche  high-end brands available there, it was likely to contain some amazing goodies.

Did it?

Besides the Burberry Lipstick and the Narciso Redriguez perfume sample, the rest did not appeal to me to be honest and the brands included could have been more exclusive than Clarins and Molton Brown for instance. 

Again, not bad for £10 as the stuff would cause approximately £30 in total and I am unlikely to go to counters for free samples so this is something I totally enjoy trying out at home and then deciding if I would like to purchase a full size.

I am just looking up the price for the Narciso Rodriguez for her while I type this and its something so sweet and floral yet tempting, that I simply cannot stop sniffing myself! It's definitely going to be a purchase :)

This little miniature baby by Burberry is also quite adorable I have to admit and the star of the box. Glossybox always finds a little gem to include in the box that lets us forget all the other 'mistakes' they have made in my opinion.

Yes its utterly difficult to control the little thing from breaking or slipping from my hands but the packaging is simply so lush, I cannot let it apart from me.

Also, how can the shade Rosewood be so universally flattering? Yes it has a slight sheen to it which I don't like but the shade is a beigey-rose or a dusky pink with a hint of brown in it, something no one can dislike to be precise.
Overall, it's am above average box, nothing that I can cringe about but I personally would have been thrilled to see some Harrods exclusives.

Burberry packaging makes me drool. <3 I wish they would release their blush brush in the US soon.


All of these products seem amazing. I need to start getting these monthly boxes. Do you think the small sizes of the products are worth it though?

I love your blog. I STILL have your blog on my blogroll<3
