I know I do, but there is one thing I hate, tiny pea sized samples! I mean how on earth can I really try out a product when i can only use it once or twice? What if i told you that now you can have your box with FULL size products?!
The company I am talking about is Betrousse*, a french based company that works with over 3000 high end brands to deliver 4-5 products in their unique beauty boxes. When you buy the box, the value is always greater than the amount you paid for it, bargain or what?
What can you expect?
I was lucky enough to get sent this box for review and I must say I was very excited. Some of the brands I have not heard of before and some I have. The box I recieved is the Glitz and Glam box which costs £10 + P&P. The overall value of this box is priced at £70! These are not monthly subscription boxes, you can buy them whenever you want without being tied in, you also know whats in the box before it comes so there is no disappointment when it arrives. The only thing is, is there is no element of surprise, but apart from that it looks like a good deal!
So.. what did i get?
Jason Normailising Shampoo £7.29.
"This shampoo contains Rosewater and Chamomile which gently cleanses the hair and scalp whilst restoring the natural Ph balcance of your hair."
Fair Naturally Mango and Safflower Body Moisturiser £2.99
"This subtle body moisturiser leaves you skin feeling irresistibly soft, smooth and nourished with only natural ingredients"
Make Believe Beauty Shimmer Lip Gloss £10
This brand was recently included in May's Birchbox and a brand that I know, they also make Fake tan, which I have used in the past. This is a lightly shimmered gloss and will give a lovely sheen to lips and a handbag stable.
Benta Berry G-1 Exfoliating Facial Cleanser £14
"Containing ground apricot seeds, this facial cleanser will make your skin soft, clean, and mattified."
Tulecos Tonifyling oil. £33
"Used on feet, this 100% natural concentrated massage oil tonifies the skin with purifying peppermint, tea tree and orange essential oils." This sounds like it will be perfect for feet after a long day at work!
Betrousse also produce other beauty boxes, all with different themes. Fairy Beauty box, Spring Beauty, Pretty Beauty, Summer Break and Organic box all valued at a lot more than the price you pay. You can look at all these boxes here
What do you think of these boxes? I really like the fact that all the products are full sized, you can really get an understanding and see a true result of the product you're using before purchasing them at full price. I personally like more make up items in my boxes, but I know this would really appeal to anyone that loves skin and body care products.
I am also offering one lucky reader the chance to win this box. All you have to do is head over to Facebook and like the Betrousse page . Leave a comment below with your facebook name and email address. It is not compulsory to follow my blog but if you so wish that would be lovely! ;)
