Betrousse UK & Giveaway

So Betrousse is a French beauty box company the only difference being that you can see the boxes on offer and choose which one you wish to purchase. Well established in france Betrousse has now come to tempt us UK beauty box lovers with full sized products within there boxes at a low cost rate and some of the best of what French companies have to offer.
The products are the full size version and you can then get a realistic opinion of the products performance rather then a gauge like how you get from a deluxe size.

They are French brands mostly and well the jars of cream you receive are glass jars and really lovely. The jars of cream you love to display on your dresser as they hold a vintage chic to them.
I much prefer glass jars to plastic looking ones. My preference only though here lol

The Box 

So some of the products within the box
Hydra Cream Expert

Heat Massage Cream

So in my Christmas is coming box I was kindly sent to review.
It contains
- Charme D'orient : Relaxing body massage cream 100ml
- Saffron London : Cracking nail polish 14ml
- Skinetica : Anti blemish 100ml
- Tattyoo : Betrousse tattoo's
- Forte pharma UK : Turboslim Chronoactive tablets
- Laboratoire LDA-Soins experts : Hydra cream expert 50ml
- Montagne Jeunesse : Spa mask (1 included )

So the Massage mask is lovely and has a slight heat when you apply so this will be lovely for the dead of winter when your a bit achy and just need a toasty feeling. I dont use alot of heat release creams so this will probably be nice when I'm having the odd ache here and there to use.
Saffron Nail polish is a brand i know and i have a few products, I like the colour and crackle effect so will be good to trial in look week to show the effect and length it lasts before chipping.
Skinetica is a brand I've seen before and have heard nothing but good things about, Its for the treatment of blemishes and imperfections. Now the sizes I've seen have been tiny so this full sized bottle is a real asset as it will last me a good while plus i am always at the risk of a potential blemish here and there being a beauty reviewer so this is a really good product for me to have in my arsenal. Now there was 2 products in this box i wont personally use, the Tattoos but a younger member of my family will love these and its more a fun product to use and well its to easy to be serious about beauty but this box with it being aimed at christmas and the whole family dynamics. You will always have a younger generation around you and its defiantly a box i can see being used as part of a pampering scenario with the comfort of heat massage cream and then the facial mask plus nail polish. Christmas has passed but i can see the idea around it.  The other product i as a personal choice did not use is the Turboslim Tablets. I don't agree with them and cant take them either. Its a very debatable topic with me and as a matter of opinion not just Betrousse have done this, I had the same opinion when another beauty box included a similar product. I think they are a faux pas and shouldn't be included also as a matter of safety.

So the Montagne Jeunesse mask is a well known and easy facial mask to use, these are the new version which actually is a mask you place on your face and then peel it off when your finished and dispose. I really enjoy my pamper days and using masks so this will be with my other masks, but ive used this brand before and re-purchased as they are easy to use and a singular use.
The Hydra cream expert is a lovely jar of cream and i really have liked it when ive used it on the 2 or 3 occasions, Its soft and absorbs well without being clogging of the pores.

So i really do love the Betrousse box, Its convenient with the fact you can view which one you wish to purchase and also with the full size products it is a very good value for money.

Now the lovely people at Betrousse have kindly offered one of my readers a chance to win your very own box.
So this will be open till the 12th March and you must follow Betrousse UK on Facebook.
