March 2012 GlossyBox: The Harrods Edition

Hey Everyone. I hope your week has been going well. I have had a headache since Monday so I am burning a candle in the hope it will relax me, ha ha :) I am going to show you today the products I received in my March GlossyBox: The Harrods Edition.

Inside The Box






Left To Right: Fendi Fan Di Fendi Eau De Toilette, Ojon Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum & Erno Laszlo The Hollywood Collection: 5 Piece Cream Gift Set



Fendi Fan Di Fendi Eau De Toilette ~ £35.00 For 30ml, £50.00 For 50ml Or £60.00 For 75ml, Link :)

The Information:

  • Fan di FENDI Eau de Toilette radiates with sunlight. The famous Forever buckle from the Baguette bag, has changed from black to shiny white gold. The cap, a subtle reminder of the Peekaboo bag clasp has changed from black to shiny white ivory. The fragrance is vibrant and lively, leaving a lasting impression of light, addictive Roman leather on the skin. 

  • Top Notes: tangerine, pear-blackcurrant and pink peppercorn
  • Middle Notes: damascena Rose and Yellow Jasmine
  • Base Notes: soft Leather and patchouli 

My Thoughts:

I find the description 'leaving a lasting impression of light, addictive Roman leather on the skin' a little strange. I do actually quite like the scent though. I would describe it as a sexy, warm summer fragrance. The bottle looks very sophisticated too. 


Ojon Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum ~ £16.00, Link :)

The Information:

  • This highly concentrated multi-tasking serum from Ojon is fortified with nature's hair-repairing golden elixir plus exotic Rouge Oleifera to penetrate the hair shaft, helping to strengthen weak hair, fix flyaways and tame frizz. The weightless formula restores brilliant shine, whilst adding suppleness and manageability to dull, damaged hair.
  • Restorative hair serum
  • Tames fizz and flyaways 

Application:

Warm one to two drops in palms of hands and apply to damp or dry hair concentrating on the ends. Use daily before heat styling or as a finishing touch.

My Thoughts:

This sounds like a nice enough hair serum, but we seem to get so many hair products that I'm a bit bored of them now.



Erno Laszlo The Hollywood Collection: 5 Piece Cream Gift Set ~ $125 For 2.5oz, Link :)

The Information:

I like that their are a collection of samples here.

I am looking forward to trying these products, but I hope I don't like them that much because they are so pricey. I like the sleek look of the packaging though.






Left To Right: Burberry Beauty Miniature Lip Cover Rosewood No4, & Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream



Burberry Beauty Miniature Lip Cover Rosewood No4 ~ £23.00 For 3.8g, Link :)

  • Intense moisture for continuous hydration

My Thoughts:

The packaging of this lipstick feels expensive. This is a really nice grown up shade. I would describe it as a brown rose colour. It has a nice sheen to it and is a smooth formula.



Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream ~ £39.50 For 200ml, Link :)

The Information:

Skin Type: Dry 
 
Texture: Cream

A rich, velvety cream to pamper the body. A formula rich in eight regenerating and firming plant extracts which help restore the skin's youthful density and elasticity.

Winner of Best Luxury Body Lotion

My Thoughts:

This feels like a very smooth cream with a clean, fresh scent. It's still more than I would usually pay for a body cream.


So overall I do like this month's GlossyBox. I am not too bothered about the hair serum, but I like the other products so far. This box does feel quite sophisticated and a bit more expensive. I am not sure why the information card in this month's GlossyBox does not have the prices of the products? It feels a bit like when you go into a shop and there are no prices on the products so you know you can't afford them, ha ha ;) Apologies for the text in this post and the white background through part of it as Blogger is not letting me amend this :(

What products did you receive in your GlossyBox this month? Were you happy with the products?


Love to you all
