The two boxes were February's and March's Harrod's Box. I was mistaken and called the Valentine's Day box, February, but it wasn't actually Feb's box. Go figure. So these two boxes are the correct ones.
There will be a lot of rambling as there are a lot of products to go through, but since I have been back, I have been able to try everything out so I can do the review now as well!
Let's start with the February box.
|Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Smoothing Balm|
I really liked this but think it may be best on thicker hair. For example my stepmom who has really thick hair that needs smoothing. Which I am totally going to suggest it to her.
Full size 200ml
(Which is about average for a Paul Mitchell hair product. I have been using his hair products for years)

Ok, I have been using this for a week and no joke, I love it so much that I will wash twice in one shower session because it's so amazing. It doesn't dry out my skin, it's incredibly invigorating (as it states). It smells absolutely beautiful and just what you need on a morning when you're feeling a little less than perky.
My only complaint is the price. It hurts me to even tell you how much a large bottle of this would cost but, in saying that, I would probably spend it anyway as it would last you for quite a while!
Full size 300ml
Pure Mineral Eyeshadow
BM Beauty provides vegetarian and vegan makeup which is obviously cruelty-free. I haven't used this brand before as there are so many mineral brands out there and with my huge range of bareMinerals I own, I never buy any others. I haven't used this eyeshadow yet as I was given a black one and well it just isn't the season for me to be using black. But I will be trying it out this weekend on a shoot and I will report back on the quality of it.
Full size 2g
RRP £ 7.00
|DR BRONNER |
Lavendar Hand Sanitiser
Not only do I love this hand sanitiser but so does Greyson. We've been using this for a couple of weeks now and it smells beautifully of lavender and not chemically at all. It is gentle enough for my little bub's hands and mine of course.
It's reasonably priced, travels in your handbag or nappy bag without issues and you can take it on a flight as it is under 100ml! Bonus!
Full size 59ml
|This is the March Glossybox which was a Special Edition Harrods box! Very exciting...or so I thought...|
The Hollywood Collection: 5 Piece Cream Gift Set
(all items are found at www.harrods.com/Glossybox )
Damage Reverse-Instant Restorative Hair Serum
I have been using Ojon products for about 2 months since I met with one of their PR reps recently and have been waiting to write up a review on their products. This little bad boy is something I am loving and have been using him since I first received him, so I was pleased to see he was placed in my Glossybox as well.
You warm one to two drops in your hands and apply to damp or dry hair, especially on the ends. It helps restore hair but also protect from heat damage.
I don't feel it makes my hair greasy at all, but I also have quite porous hair. I use probably 5 drops or more as my hair is a bit long as well. I wouldn't use this if you have quite fine hair as it could be too much, or just use a single drop.
I am also using their other shampoo and conditioner , dry recovery products which you can see by clicking on the link above. I find those are good, but probably better suited to hair that is a little dry and less damaged like mine. I want to try their Reverse Damage range as I think they will work better for me.
All in all I love this product and think it's totally worth it. It doesn't have an overpowering smell which is nice as well!
Full sizes 25ml -50ml
RRP £16 - £22
PHEW! Done! Wow, that's what I get for going away. That was a lot to go through but a lot of nice things for people to try out. Though I am loving the Glossybox and all of the samples I am going to try out some other boxes which do a similar thing and see what they have to offer. It's nice to be able to try so many things for such little expense...I'm loving it!
