Betrousse Box


Betrousse Organic Box

I kindly won this box from the lovely Jessica from JessicaBeautician (thank you Jess!!) and was delighted to try out the Organic box. I did see what I was getting before hand briefly but forgot about it until the box arrived! I will use 3 out of the 5 products which isn't bad, the hair mascara went straight to my niece!

If you haven't heard of Betrousse Box, they are a beauty box with a difference. They focus on French brands (great for skincare!) but all their products are full size. The boxes are a little more expensive than your average Glossybox, She Said Beauty etc but remember, you are getting more for your money and usually triple what you've paid already.

Each month, Betrousse offer themed boxes (kits) usually under £20 for 5 products, bargain!





I haven't had much chance to test out the products yet except the eyes and lips contour. It's an oil that you put around your eyes and lips as it says but the texture is really nice. Normally I hate putting oils on my face, the things we do for beauty! The formulation is good, I can't say I've noticed a difference just yet, but I'll keep you updated!

The bath salts are my next to try. I love bath salts as a treat but really love my Nirvana Spa Toffee bath (it's amazing-try it!)

The hair mascara was a little test but it looked absolutely awful on my hair and went quite crispy, not a good look trust me.

The hair spray is a brilliant idea as I normally spray perfume or body spray, also not very good for your hair, oopsy. I love the smell but will probably use it after a heat protectant rather than on dry hair as advised.

The lavender soap isn't something I will use. I hate lavender scents, so immediately gave this to my Boyfriend who put it in good use!






Overall, I think the boxes are a great idea. I would have prefered one of the other boxes but I've been very lucky to be introduced to these boxes. I want to see what other boxes are coming up in the next following month but I like the look of the "must haves" box.

What do you think of this box? Would you like the organic box?
