Betrousse Absolutely Fabulous Beauty Kit

Its always exciting when Betrousse release another one of their fabulous beauty kits, I've loved the previous boxes and was thrilled to receive their latest offering, the Absolutely Fabulous Beauty Kit

French beauty box

For those not already familiar with Betrousse, they are a French company who periodically release these 'beauty kits', boxes full of fabulous and full sized beauty products at a heavily discounted rate. No mystery monthly subscription or tiny samples here! 

This current box, for example, is on sale for £19 (+ postage) but has a whopping £119 value. Here's how they came to that amount: 
Organic Surge Face WAsh

Duck Island Sensuous Shampoo (£14.98) - This paraben and mineral-oil free shampoo has the most wonderfully invigorating Mandarin and Bergamot scent. I love the cute packaging and the pump dispenser! 
Organic Surge Pure and Clean Face Wash (£5.49) - Often in these boxes the brands (usually French) are unknown to me, but I'm already familiar with Organic Surge and have used their shower gels and bath foams for a while now. The face wash smells great, is suitable for sensitive skin and doesn't include any nasty chemicals. 

helenere hedelweiss

The Helenere Hedelweiss 24 Hour Cream (£30) and Intensive Serum (£32) are where a lot of the boxes value lies, so I'm hoping that the quality shows itself on my face! These use a 'pure and exclusive complex of extract of Edelweiss' to moisturise and protect the skin.
The Leor Facial Exfoliate Creme (£11) is, as you'd imagine, a facial exfoliator. I know a lot of people aren't sold on the scent of lavender but I love it, which is a good job as this is very strongly scented! It does feel very luxurious though, and the exfoliation is very gentle. 
cream to make you thinner
Finally is the Spa Find Inchwrap Firming Gel (£25.30) - this is supposed to tone and firm wobbly skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite, and contains caffeine, dead sea minerals and hyaluronic acid amongst other ingredients to help achieve this. I haven't used this enough yet to comment on any long term effects, but it certainly does make your skin feel tighter immediately after use as the gel dries. 
So that's it for another Betrousse Box, I can't wait to try everything out a bit more thoroughly! I think these kits are fantastic bargains and this one, along with a couple of the previous ones, is available here
