GlossyBox x Harrods Mini Review

Hey everyone, I just wanted to share some snaps of the March Glossybox that I recently received. I subscribed to Glossybox at the beginning of the month as I had been debating whether or not to sign up for months and then the prospect of the Harrods collaboration swayed me! For those who don't know, GlossyBox is a subscription service which supplies you with 5 luxury beauty product samples per month for the flat fee of £10 (plus £2.95 p&p). You can cancel at any time so with this in mind I thought I'd give it a go, I could always cancel if I didn't like the results! Unfortch for my bank account, I liked the Box very much! I'd heard a lot of mixed reviews via spoilers from other beauty bloggers but I was still so excited to receive my own box. I'd heard there were all sorts of wonderful goodies inside, from Lancome Juicy Tubes to Burberry lipsticks. I didn't get either of these products but it's ok, I got some other lovely bits instead. My box was a lovely strong card with a lift off lid (great for future storage) and was stamped with the Harrods logo, very posh! Inside it was packed with glossy black paper tied with a green and gold printed Harrods ribbon. There was also a card telling you a little about each product I received and how to use it, etc. 
The sizes of the samples included were much larger than I was expecting, there was more than one use from each product easily which is quite rare for a sample as usually you only get a really tiny pot or bottle. So that was pleasing! The contents of my box were:
-Clarins firming body lotion (always up for trying new body products and I love Clarins, so I was chuffed to get this!)
-Leighton Denny nail varnish in Honey Trap (lovely chalky nude tone, right up my street; I'd heard of Leighton Denny but never bought a product so this was great to try.)
-Bliss blood orange and white pepper body lotion (never heard of this brand but I love the texture of the lotion and the smell is absolutely divine!)
-Versace Vanitas fragrance sample (wow. Smells amazing, and is a proper nice dinky little shrunken sized perfume naff little test tube here!)
-ReVive face cream (the smallest product sample but still I'd say maybe a week's worth. I've discovered that the standard sized pot costs £240 or thereabouts! So you can understand why the sample might be smaller! I've tried this cream and it is really lovely, very rich but to be honest, I would never be able to afford to spend £240 on a pot of face cream so if it wasn't for GlossyBox I'd never have had the opportunity to try this.
So this was my experience of my first GlossyBox! I have decided to keep my subscription going because I feel the reward is worth the outlay. I've even got my mum thinking about signing up too!
Do you guys get GlossyBox? I'd  love to hear your thoughts on it!
Also one other thing, a reader left a comment on one of my outfit pictures the other day, saying that the photo's were too dark and they couldn't see my outfit very well. I was just wondering whether you guys feel this way too and don't want to tell me about it! I suppose the images are a little darker than some, but this could be down to my editing, but if it's ruining the effect for you, please let me know and I'll try to rectify this :) 
XO Amie
