Why hello :)
I'll have to admit a squeak of excitement when my glossybox arrived this morning. After all of the hype built up over this box - the special 'Harrods' edition, I had high expectations. But has it lived up to that? Let's take a peek at which products I received this month!

- Burberry miniature Lip Mist in Copper No202
With a balmy, lip-loving formula, Lip Mist offers sheer colour with an irresistible gloss shine.

- Clarins Extra Firming Body Cream
A formula rich in regenerating and firming plant extracts which immediately helps to lift and tone, for firmer skin and a younger looking body.

- YSL Forever Youth Liberator Serum
A powerful serum enriched with 3 glycans to help increase youthful activity in skin cells.

- Narciso Rodriguez - For Her Eau De Parfum
For her is Narciso Rodriguez's first fragrance. A tribute to women's grace and power of inspiration.

- Molton Brown - Heavenly Gingerlily moisture Bath & Shower
Vitamin-rich fruit extracts boost the skin and invigorate the senses.

My Opinion:
- Burberry miniature Lip Mist in Copper No202
Not a shade I would have chosen for myself, but this is probably the most exciting item in this month's box for me. The formula is heavenly and the shade is really flattering, plus i finally get to try some burberry make up!

- Clarins Extra Firming Body Cream
Not sure how much use i'll get out of this. The fact that is says 'younger looking body' in the product description really makes me mad. We fill out profiles so we get products suitable for us, so why would they send me this!?

- YSL Forever Youth Liberator Serum
Again, why send an 18 year old an anti-wrinkle serum! Really peeved at Glossybox for this. On the other hand, happy mothers day mum, this will be given to you!

- Narciso Rodriguez - For Her Eau De Parfum
Nice enough but the size of the sample is pretty pathetic, a mere 1ml. Come on glossybox! The other perfume samples in some of the other boxes look much bigger than this! However, the scent is gorgeous but I would've liked a bit more of it!

- Molton Brown - Heavenly Gingerlily moisture Bath & Shower
ANOTHER SHOWER GEL!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? This is the 3rd box IN A ROW that I've recieved a shower gel. Ok, Molton Brown is a very nice, high end brand but I haven't even got through the last two shower products you gave me. I know a lot of people will NOT be pleased with this.

Overall, this is one of my lease favourite glossybox (only ahead of the valentine's day edition). The only thing that excites me is the burberry lipstick.

Glossybox, if you're listening;
- Why do we even bother filling out personal profiles if you're going to ignore them and send an 18 year old university student an anti-ageing serum. Get it together.
- If you're going to create all of this hype over a 'special edition' box, then at least make it good, rather than building everyones expectations, only to thoroughly disappoint them.

Well that's it for now,
What did you get in your box? Were you impressed or disappointed?
