My GlossyBox: March 2012 Edition...

This month's box is the hotly anticipated 'Harrods Edition' featuring five samples of luxury products found in their infamous beauty halls. Here's what came in mine this month:

  • Bliss Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter
  • Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream
  • RéVive Intensité Créme Lustre SPF 30
  • Lancôme Juicy Tube in Toffee R'N'B 93
  • Versace Vanitas Versace Eau De Parfum
I love that this box is almost all skincare. Whilst I do love the make up that gets thrown into these boxes unless they're a staple such as a mascara, blue or lipstick, the colours are pretty hard to get right. Especially with Summer on the way, I'm making a conscious effort to take better care of myself, going to the gym and taking better care of my skin.
This smells like freshly squeezed orange, it's gorgeous and smelling it makes me think of summer and want it to hurry up! It's a thick body butter but doesn't leave a greasy residue which is lovely. It's really hydrating too. The full sized 200ml product retails for £20.50
I've been looking forward to trying out some Clarins products, even if they're not actually sold in Harrods, this body cream seems like a good place to start. Firming creams are always good around summer to tone up the skin on your legs and stomach. Can't wait to give this a proper test. The full sized product retails for £39.50.
I am really intrigued by this product, considering the full sized product retails for a whopping £235! It claims to feature Bio-Firming Protein with a complex of enzymes to help increase elasticity while reducing the appearance of sagging skin. While at 20 anti-ageing is not the top of my priorities I'm beginning to appreciate that prevention is better than the cure! If it doesn't make a drastic change to my skin, the fact that it contains SPF 30 will mean it will protect my skin from anything the sun can throw at it. 
I really like this! The formula is non-sticky and high gloss. The scent is pretty sickly sweet but I like that. The colour is nice and neutral and gives a nice gold sheen over the lips. A full sized 30ml Juicy Tube retails for £14.
Definitely the most perfect scent for spring. As I'm no good at describing scent, it's described as a "fresh blend of lime, tiare and freesia. Evoking the scent of a garden in full bloom, with a hint of cedar" at £45 for 30ml, it's not a bank breaker either. 

What did you think of this months box? I hope that GlossyBox continue doing collaborations, the boxes are getting stronger every month.

Much Love,
Lauran
