I was so excited about receiving my Harrods Glossybox this month because I had read lots of blogs about what people were receiving and my expectations were HIGH. Too high it turned out.
What I wanted more than anything was the Molten Brown bath & shower gel and the YSL serum (I'm a MASSIVE fan of serum!) But sadly that wasn't meant to be. I did however receive a Clarins body moisturiser which I was excited about.
This month, my box contained:
|Roman Leather on skin... give me strength!|
Ojon - Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum
I tried this, this morning and I have to say it did make my split ends look less bad - which is a good thing - but my hair felt quite greasy by the end of the day.
Erno Laszlo - The Hollywood Collection
I don't know much about Erno Laszio, other than that he was quite a famous dermatologist. Anyway a quick bit of googling just now tells me these products are actually real expensive. I tried the night cream out last night and whilst it was a bit heavy for my skin, I've just read quite a lot of reviews from devotees of EL who seem to really love the products.
Burberry Beauty - Miniature Lip Cover Rosewood No4
This was another disappointment to me. The feel of the product on my lips itself was ok, but I really didn't like the colour. I'd like to try the lighter colour that other people received though as it looked a whole lot more subtle than Rosewood.
Clarins - Extra Firming Body Cream
Believe it or not I am a Clarin's virgin, so I've been enjoying trialing this. Only used it twice though, so all I can report so far is that it feels nice on the skin. But I guess any firming qualities will take a while to show themselves.
ANYWAY, I've done a heck of a lot of moaning. To stop feeling bitter and sorry for myself, I've decided to cancel my Glossybox membership and instead spend the money I would have spent, on something I've always wanted to try.
On the hit list so far are:
Molten Brown shower gel
Mac Strobe Cream
Anyone got any ideas of other things I could try?
