Harrods Glossybox

Humph...well, where to start.

I was soooo excited about receiving the Harrods Glossybox. I loved the clever marketing surrounding it, and Glossybox were really selling this as an amazing month.

When I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised by the actual Glossybox itself, nice colour, very chic.
When I opened it though I was majorly disappointed.

Nothing jumped out at me as exciting, and to be honest I just read the card we were sent straight away, rather than having a look through. Everything looked tiny, not particularly exciting and on the whole a massive let down.

I received:

A tiny (I mean tiny) sample of Versace - Vanitas Versace Eau De Parfum.

Cute bottle, but to be honest, you could get this free at perfume counters. Disappointment number one.

A half size of the Bliss Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter.

This is ok, I mean, this is reasonably inexpensive anyway in my opinion, and Bliss aren't a high end brand I would associate with Harrods, but it wasn't the worst product in there.

A teeny pot of Revive Intensite Creme Lustre
This would be great if I was older and actually had sagging skin around my eyes. Even as a preventative, it seems a little premature. Do you not read the profiles we filled in Glossybox? I do not need firming cream!

A small sample of Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation

This is a nice shade, and I like Lancome as a brand, so, although it is a minuscule sample, it will be good to try out.

Finally I received, the Clarins Extra Firming Body Cream. I like Clarins, don't get me wrong, but I do not need firming cream!!! Read our profiles Glossybox!

So, yep, you got it. No full size product. Rubbish.

I'm not posting any pictures because I didn't think they were even worth photographing.
This is easily the most disappointing box I have received, and it feels like such a waste of money.
How many more chances do Glossybox want?
 I was desperate for them to redeem themselves with this one.
Sadly they went down even further in my estimations.
So disappointing.
What makes me even angrier is reading all the other blogs and watching the reviews on you tube. So many people are disappointed. So many of these people are telling prospective subscribers how disappointed they are.

 Don't you care Glossybox?
Sort it out.

Just didn't live up to the hype.

  1. This is such a shame, I remember seeing adverts for the upcoming Harrods box, and I'm so glad I didn't sign up. x

  2. You definitely had a lucky escape!
    I've emailed to complain, but no doubt it will fall on deaf ears!
