I always love finding new beauty boxes. Most of the big brand beauty boxes give one or two great products and the rest tend to be rubbish samples that you could pick up free from a store; you might as well buy the good products alone. The beauty box companies that are not as well known tend to get really great products from less known brands and you get value for your money. So when i found out about Betrousse's Glitz and Glamour beauty box i was really excited to try the products.
The first thing i spotted was you were sent 5 full sized products- 5!!!! How amazing is that?
Jason rosewater and chamomile shampoo:
I haven't got around to trying this yet but it smells lovely. It claims to soothe and balance the scalp and the natural ingredients remove dirt without stripping the hair of moisture- really looking forward to trying this. Buy for £7.29 (here).
Fair Naturally Mango and Safflower body moisturiser:
This smells really good and sinks in easily leaving your skin feeling moisturised and soft. I was surprised to see a "natural" product product retailing for just £3.99 so i read the ingredients. Turns out it isn't as natural as the brand name would suggest. The second ingredient is 'Paraffinium Liquidum' and it uses mango extract not real mango butter which explains the low price tag. For some this won't be a problem but for those who like their natural products to actually be natural I would avoid this product. Buy for £3.99 (here).
Benta Berry G-1 exfoliating facial gel for boys and girls:
This product is 100% natural and aimed at teens and those with oily skin. I use this as an everyday moisturiser before i put on my foundation to keep my skin soft and smooth. Buy for £14 (here).
Tulecos tonifiying oil with organic peppermint and essential oil:
Favourite product in the box. As the name suggests it smells like peppermint (yum!). It's intended for use on the feet, i was intrigued as i've never heard of a foot oil. It sinks in after a few minutes and doesn't feel greasy at all. Perfect for keeping your feet moisturised during bikini season. Buy for £33 (here).
Make believe enhance shimmer lipgloss:
A lovely shimmery nude. Buy for £10 (here).
I really enjoyed receiving this box as i'd never heard of any of the brands/products before and considering there are 5 full sized, good, products in the box £10 is a steal. I added up all of the products lone prices and if i had bought all of them separately it would amount to around £70- absolute bargain. Colour me impressed! Buy the box from Betrousse (here).
