Ding, Ding Round 2 Harrods Glossybox!

Couldn't resist ordering an extra Glossybox this month with it being the Harrods edition, hubby phoned work to say it had been delivered (well trained!) but looking online I could see that lots of people who got theirs on the same day had the dreaded body lotion box (I'm convinced they send them out in batches)....

Yay! Only one body lotion, praise again to the beauty gods!

As you can see this box looks a lot fuller than the first box I received.

It says on the card - present this card at Molton Brown in Harrods and receive a complimentary hand & arm massage, along with a little bag of treats! Now I don't live anywhere near London, so if you would like me to send you this card in the post let me know. First come, first served!

My lovely assistant in work purchased this perfume last week, it smells gorgeous and the full size bottle is very pretty.  This is a 1.5ml sample.

More Molton Brown, different scent this time - I love the sample I got in my first box, so I'm pleased to get another bottle.

Anti-ageing moisturiser, I have a little obsession with the Sisley cream that I received in my YOU Latest in Beauty Box and while I love it I can not justify spending hundreds of pounds on a cream - so when one of the lovely ladies on Beauty Box Swaps put up a post asking who wanted to swap their SKII for the Sisley I was straight in there!

I was really pleased to find this in my box as I've heard good things about it and have wanted to try it for a while, its a 2ml sample.  Can't wait for the next night out with the girls so I can try it out!

This is a 4ml sample and while I'm pleased to try it out I do wish companies wouldn't put oil samples in a sachet, little tubes/tubs/vials would be much easier to use.  I'll probably decant this into a little pot so that I can get more than one use out of it.  I would have liked a bigger sample too, as I don't know how my skin will react using it once or twice.  A weeks worth would be much better!

And last, but not least the body lotion! I'm actually secretly pleased to get this again as I loved the one out of my first box and have already used it all! Ssshhhh though don't tell the beauty gods!

I actually like the first box I received more than this one.  I would have loved to get one of the perfume samples in the minature bottles and yet again Glossybox are facing criticism for the variety in the boxes!

I would have loved to try the Ojon too, but that leads onto another post.........!

Did you order more than one box?  What was your favourite item?


  1. Nice box you've got!
    I agree with you about the Shu Uemura cleansing oil sample, when I was in HK they gave me the sample in a little tube instead of a sachet.
    Probably because the cost of packaging of a backing card would be less than the tube, that's why... xx

    1. Can't wait to try it out, going to find a little tub to put it in. What did you think of it when you tried it?

  2. That version looks fab, I was good and only ordered one but I'm wondering if I should order another now.

    1. I was lucky and had enough glossydots for one box, so technically only had to pay for one :)
      I do much prefer the first box though!

  3. My second box was the same as this one. Was a bit disappointed with it to be honest. Swapped the whole thing!

    Must admit I did keep the Shu Uemura to give it a try. Like you, I wish it was bigger!

    Lola ..x

    1. That mascara is going no-where for love nor money! Nor the perfume! :)

      What did you think of the Shu Uemura?

  4. i'm tempted to order another one too! xxx
