I was recently contacted and asked if I would like to try the Betrousse Beauty Box* and as I've tried GlossyBox and She Said Beauty, I thought it would be a great time to let you know what I really think! I explain all about the brand and concept in my video below if you wanted to see me unboxing and my first impressions.
Soins Experts Hydro Expert Cream 50ml - £34.00
I absolutely love the packaging and feel to this product, its very high end and the product reflects that. The moisturiser is thick and heavy, great for someone like me with dry skin. It smells nice and is definitely my favourite product in the whole box.
Skinetica Anti-Blemish Spot Treatment 100ml - £9.99
I've received this a few weeks ago so I've been trying it out for a while and I just don't see the hype. I tried it and didn't see immediate action, my spots ended up clearing the same sort of time they usually do. I would recommend this for someone with more acne-prone skin.
Charme D'Orient Relaxing Body Massage Cream 100ml - £16.00
This smelt like my grandma so I was completely put off! I would definitely recommend for an older audience, someone like my mum would love this massaged into her but I just wasn't so keen.
Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Spa Face Mask - £1.49
I haven't tried this (it's going on my face tonight!), but I looked it up and its an actual mask that you place on your face if that makes sense. I'm tempted to do an individual review for this one.
Forte Pharma Turbo Slim Chrono Activ Slimming Tablets - £29.95
WHAT. I really wasn't impressed with these. I feel really uncomfortable using diet pills and I don't think any beauty box should be giving them out. Therefore, I haven't used them and can't review for you.
Tattyoo Temporary Tattoos - £5.00
Again, WHAT. I'm not sure who uses these but I think they're childish and I wasn't impressed to receive them. Maybe if you're younger than me they might be fun, but I won't be using these.
Saffron London Crackling Polish - £0.75
Seriously, I'm not even going to bother trying this because I absolutely hate crackle polish and for 75p, wouldn't expect a miracle anyway. Poor packaging and I would have rather received a normal colour.
I'm not sure. I really like the concept but I don't know who they are targeting with this box. The tattoos, nail polish and maybe even the spot treatment would apply more to a younger audience, where as the other products like the creams are definitely better for older people like my mum. I would hate to think young girls are trying the slimming tablets! Therefore, I have no idea who to suggest this box to as it's a bit too mixed for me. I liked the face mask and can't wait to try that though. I'm going to keep my eye on the Betrousse Beauty Box website incase a great box comes up, but I don't think I would have bought this for £19.00.
