Betrousse Summer Break Box

If you have not yet heard about Betrousse, they are the market leaders in France for their beauty kit concept. They have been established in France for the past five years and entered the UK market about 6 months ago. 

This is a beauty box with a difference.  The Betrousse boxes contain ALL full size products plus you can see what is in the boxes before you buy.  They have a  few different boxes on sale at the same time so you can pick which one (or two!) you like the most. You can visit their website here where you can get £3 discount on your first box.

This is my second Betrousse box and you can read my review on Organic and Natural Beauty box here.

This box is "Summer Break" it retails for £19 plus delivery of £5 and the contents are worth a whopping £109! All products that are contained in the box are available for purchase in the UK - I don't like it when beauty boxes put samples in of products you can't actually buy in the UK!

The box is large and is delivered in an outer cardboard box.
Look at all those goodies!
The box contains a double sided card - one side tells you the contents of the box, brand, product, size and price and the other side of the card gives you an introduction to the box and a paragraph detailing each product.
Lilas Blanc, Secret Eclat Jeunesse
50ml and retails at £36.50
Lilas Blanc are the very first luxury organic anti-aging brand in the market. The product is aimed at mature dry skins, I have combination skin so this may not be suitable for my skin type. My skin is a lot drier in the winter so this will be more suitable for me then.
The cream looks quite thick and rich in the pot but it's actually very light and sinks in easily.
Orhis Nourishing Face Cream
50ml and retails for £28
This cream contains 99.1% natural ingredients. Including cottonseed and argan oil. This smells so nice, just like marshmallows! On first impressions I thought the container looked a bit cheap, but actually it is very practical. It's easy to get the cream out and only a small amount is squeezed out so there will be no waste.
Cinq Mondes, Roses Petal Rain Mist
200ml and retails at £28
This is an ancestral eastern cleansing ritual which contains Moroccan rose extracts with softening properties together with an aromatic concentrate of roses.  Spray as a refreshing and moisturising body mist.
Oh this is gorgeous! My favourite product in the box.
Cosmetoo Nails, Nail Art Express Kit
1 pack of pink bow stickers, 1 bag of rhinestones, 1 stick of boxwood - retails at £3.90
Cute little kit!
Benta Berry, G-1 Moisturising Face Cream
30ml and retails at £12
This brand is aimed at younger skin and can be used by both females and males. It is made from 100% natural ingredients. 
I am going to try this out as it regulates skins oil levels and as Even though I no longer have young skin (sob) I do have combination skin so my T-zone definitely needs regulation! 
This is a little extra! 
Coslys shower gel for sensitive skin with organic fig.
