March Glossy Box! The Harrods Edition!

So here is the box that has been hyped up by glossybox as 'the unexpected' something that's going to re-excite all subscribers and encourage more people to subscribe! What do you think??

So first impressions, well it looks a bit fuller than my last box which was made up of tiny tiny samples although I was a little disappointed that I didn't get the Burberry mini-lipstick or the valentino valentina perfume that I got excited about when I heard the rumours.
so what did I get??
Versace - Vanitas Eau De Parfum
Bliss - Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter
Revive - Intensite Creme Lustre
Lancome - Juicy Tube in Toffee
Clarins - Extra-Firming Body Lotion Cream
(Well it seems I must sound saggy because they've sent me two firming creams, I know your supposed to start using them when your younger but I'm only 16!!)

Versace - Vanitas Eau De Parfum (4,5ml) Full size: 50 ml - £58.99
What they said: 'a luxurious scent from the House of Versace.Vanitas is a rich and voluptuous fragrance with notes of tiare flower, lime and freesia'
What I say: I like this perfume it reminds me of spring as it's really fresh and floral. I like the fact it's actually in a mini bottle rather than a plastic tube because the bottle is so cute! For those of you who like to go by price, if you were to buy it this size, it would roughly come to £5.30. Rating : ♥♥♥♥

Bliss - Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter (50ml) Full size : 200ml - £20.50
What they said: 'Deeply moisturising, skin softening, naturally rejuvenating body butter in mouth watering blood orange and white pepper'
What I say: I'm undecided on this body butter, yes it's incredibly moisturising but I'm not sure if I like the smell or not! For me it smells less like fresh oranges and more like orange jelly and nowhere as good as the bodyshop one. If you've never heard of Bliss before they're an international spa company who owe a lot of recent publicity to Oprah.  The price - roughly £5.10. Rating ♥♥♥
Revive - Intensite Creme Lustre SPF30 (7ml) Full size: 60ml £235.00 - yes that is right!!!
What they said: 'An intensive, firming moisturiser that helps to reduce the appearance of sagging skin'
What I say: well this didn't look like much but when I saw the price I couldn't believe it!! This is exactly the kind of product glossybox subscribers sign up for, I know it's an anti-ageing cream which as I'm 16 could be a little offending but I will definitely give it a try or save it for when the wrinkles start appearing, it doesn't really have a smell so will be good for people with sensitive skin as there's no perfume in it. This would cost roughly £27.40 if you bought it this size. Rating:♥♥♥
Lancome - Juicy Tubes - Toffee R'N'B 93 (7ml) Full size: 18ml £15.50
What they said: 'Ultra Shiny hydrating lipgloss;
What I say: So I was pleased there was at least one makeup item in my box, however I got lipgloss last month too lets hope lipgloss doesn't turn into the new moisturiser! I would love love love this if it wasn't toffee! I hate toffee!! It makes me feel sick! I might keep trying it and see how it goes but I do feel queasy smelling it right now!! Roughly would cost £6.00. Rating ♥
Clarins - Extra-Firming Body Cream (30ml) Full size: 200ml £39.50
What they said: 'A formula rich in regenerating and firming plant extracts which restore the skin's youthful density and elasticity'
What I say: Another firming cream?? Really glossybox, I like the fact it's Clarins so a good brand again but two of the same products doesn't seem right to me?? anyway I don't want to be negative so I'm going to try it but yeah would cost roughly  £5.90 ♥♥♥
So price wise this box is worth £49.70 so the Harrods box did follow through with what they promised, luxury brands. However I think that they made a mistake including two anti-ageing firming products, other than that I like the box, would really like more mini perfumes!! They're perfect for my handbag and I'm always trying perfumes :)
