Beauty Box haven't been my thing for a while now (too many products I'm not interested in) but come Christmas I'm certain to get tempted by one LE box! This year it's the Glossybox Harvey Nichols Limited Edition Christmas box which is a jam packed box full of high-end beauty treats that's worth it's money and more.
Before I go raving about the box and it's products I want to point out that this box goes on sale at 12pm today (after it's been offered to people that signed up to be notified between 9-12pm) and will sell-out. Hopefully not within the day, though you never know, so if you do want the box then I would suggest acting fast! Cost wise the Limited Edition Christmas box costs £30 (plus p&p) to Glossybox subscribers and £35 for non-subscribers (plus p&p) here.
Now onto the amazing contents of the box...
The Harvey Nichols Limited Edition Glossybox includes...
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (mini)
Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum (mini)
Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien (mini - so close to full size)
Rodial Bee Venom Moisturiser (mini)
Benefit They're Real Mascara (mini)
Macadamia Hair Oil (mini)
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (mini)
La Coupe Intensive Hair Repair (sachet)
Harvey Nichols Scented Candle (mini - 1 of 4 different scents)
Show Beauty Hair Product (full size - 1 of 11 different products)
OPI products (full size - either Viking nail polish or Avoplex Hand Cream)
Percy & Reed Dry Conditioner (mini - optional I'm thinking as I didn't receive this).
As you can see the box reall is crammed packed and actually worth over £150! I personally find this the best beauty box to date with not a single product I don't want to use.... also who can't resist a beauty box with a Nars and OPI product in it! One word - spoilt.
I won't bore you with going into detail about each product and what I like about it. So instead I thought I'd share with you my absolute favourites from the box.
First up has to be the Nars Satin Lip Pencil (normally £18.00) which is basically a lovely lip crayon in a universal shade (so pleased about this!). The crayon applies easily and has a lovely feel on the lips, as for the shade this makes my lips appear fuller and with more colour - certainly a your-lips-but-better shade. Next up I have to talk about the Show Dry Shampoo (normally £30?!), this isn't a brand I've heard of before but it's certainly a luxe product I liked the look of... also I was eager to see how good a dry shampoo that costs £30 could be. Okay... I'd never buy this for £30, because well that's just madness, but this is easily the nicest dry shampoo tried and it smells of toffee, which lingers in the hair all day! Very pleased it's a large can also. Onto the OPI Viking in Vinter Vonderland Nail Polish (normally £12) this is a beautiful deep purple shade that's perfect for winter and one I will definitely be wearing alone and under some festive glitter nail polishes this Christmas!
Another surprising favourite with the Harvey Nichols Mini Dining Candle (normally come in a set of 4 for £30) even though I'm obsessed with candles I didn't expect to like this for some reason but the look of the candle is just so stunning and the scent is ideal for burning after dinner - really fresh and clean. Alfter looking at the full set online I now think it will be going on my Christmas list! Last but not least a mini of the ever popular Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (normally £80 for 50ml - 15ml sample) with oily/combination skin I've just been using this as a night cream and actually felt the difference in my skin after one use - my skin felt so soft! This is hugely pricey full size so it's probably not wise to love it but it's a generous sample and one I can always hunt down on eBay once I've used it up.
As you may have noticed I didn't include some of the better know products in my favourites, this is because I already own and love a few of them! The Laura Mercier Foundation Primer is a total winner, as is Benefit's They're Real Mascara and the Macadamia Hair Oil is a must when my hair is feeling damaged.
Overall this really is an amazing box that is like Christmas when you open it! Whether you buy this as a Christmas present to yourself (yes, it's so allowed!), split the products for gifts to friends & family or give it to a beauty obsessed friend this Christmas, you certainly won't be let down by this box. As mentioned at the top, the limited edition box will be on sale at 12pm today (17th November) here.
What do you think of the box? I'd love to know.
