Betrousse Fairy Beauty Box Review

Betrousse Fairy Beauty Box* - I'm not sure why it has fairy in the description but it's packed full of goodies so that's what matters! The contents of the box are worth a whopping £97, the price of the price is £19 plus P&P.
The products arrived well packaged in the usual black Betrousse box with hot pink tissue wrapping and packing wiggles (not sure of the actual name!).  All the products are full size so you can decide whether or not you actually like the product.
Skinetica Anti Blemish 100ml retails for £9.99.
I've read some good reviews on this product, my skin has been behaving recently so I have not been able to try it out. As soon as I get a breakout I'll be seeing if it lives up to the hype!
Saffron London Black Cracking Nail Polish 14ml retails for £0.75.
I have had this in a previous Betrousse box but as the boxes are not subscription based I don't feel that's an issue.  I am not a fan of cracking polishes so I'll pass this on to someone who will use it.
Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Spa mask OR Glacial Clay Spa mask, 1 mask and retails for £1.49.
I got the Dead Sea Mud Spa mask, it is a clay infused fabric mask.  I like a good clay mask so I am looking forward to using this, and to it not being too messy as it's a fabric mask.  I always manage to get clay masks all over the bathroom!
Laboratoire LDA-Soins Experts Hydra Expert Cream 50ml retails for £34.00.
This is a day cream for dry skin, my skin is always dry in the colder months so I'm looking forward to using this.
HydraExpert® Cream fights against skin dehydration. High regenerating and anti-oxidant action. Soothing and protective properties.  It contains ceramides, essential fatty acids and Jojoba Oil.

- Ceramides are used to maintain ideal moisture levels in the skin.

- Essential fatty acids including Omega. The lack of Omega 3 is often associated with dry skin. Use of Expert Hydra Cream helps restore the balance Omega 3 / Omega 6, essential for proper tissue development and renewal.

- Jojoba Oil regulates sebum production. It also has protective properties by creating a non-greasy film that preserves natural skin moisturing (against cold and drought).
Forte Pharma UK Turboslim ChronoActiv 28 tablets retail for £29.95.
I'm not sure how I feel about slimming tablets being included in a beauty box! Although again as the box is not subscription based it would be a personal choice to purchase the box and use the tablets.  As I am currently pregnant these are going to be stashed in the cupboard and may be very helpful in shifting some of the baby weight later on in the year.

Charme D'Orient Relaxing Body Massage Cream 100ml OR Bath and Massage Oil "Orient Scents" 150ml, both retail for £16.00.
I received the massage cream, it's quite a thick cream and smells lovely.
Formulated with a base of black seed oil, cinnamon essential oil and capsicum. Ideal for relaxing muscles and for massage.
Tattyoo Betrousse Tattoos £5.00
I'm always unsure of the pricing of products in the beauty boxes of own branded products but as the rest of the contents are worth so much I think we can let this one go ;)
Personally I am a bit old for this product but I have know two girls who would be made up with these so I will share them between them.

Overall another good box from Betrousse, I still like the concept of it not being a subscription based beauty box so you know what you are getting before it arrives.  I also like that all the products are full sized.  You can read more about the contents of this box and purchase it here,  There are more boxes for sale and you can find them here.

Have you had a Betrousse box before?


  1. I was looking at the Betrousse boxes but some of the products I just wouldn't use, wish you could mix and match hehe!
