Today's post features a review of a new type of beauty box: a beauty box containing lovely high quality, full size products with a subscription free service!
Betrousse are a leading beauty box provider in France and have quite recently launched their fabulous service here in the UK. They currently offer seven different themed beauty 'kits' or boxes, all of which are available for a one-off purchase via their website.

Today I will be reviewing the Betrousse Glitz & Glamour Beauty Box which costs £10.00 + P&P but contains an astonishing £70.00 worth of products! I have also previously reviewed the Betrousse Fairy Beauty Box which you can find here.
The Betrousse Glitz and Glamour box contains five luscious full size products that are perfect for a spot of pampering and beautifying!
MAKE BELIEVE BEAUTY
Shimmer Lip Gloss
'Lip moisturiser and gloss for luscious lips with a hint of shimmer'.
This lip gloss can be worn either alone or over your favourite lipstick. The slight shimmer effect in this lip gloss is really summery and would be perfect for spicing up pretty much any lipstick shade. It has the texture of a lip balm, isn't sticky and feels really moisturising on the lips.

JĀSÖN Normalising Shampoo
'This PH balancing shampoo cleanses hair with natural, gentle surfactants while balancing the scalp with Rosewater and Chamomile. Removes residue and build-up without stripping or drying hair. Use daily to promote a healthy scalp and foster beautiful, healthy hair'.
|Jason Normalising Shampoo|
This shampoo has a beautiful, light floral scent. I'd happily wear the scent of this shampoo as a perfume as it is so delicate and summery!
I'm really excited to try this shampoo as it will be the first sodium lauryl / laureth sulfate free shampoo I've ever used. This is perfect because my hair is a little bit dry at the moment, especially on the ends so a gentle, natural shampoo such as this one should be perfect for cleansing my hair without stripping out all the natural oils, leaving it feeling dry and brittle like some harsher shampoos can do.
This product should really come with a little halo floating around the lid not just because it's heavenly (;-P) but also because it's pure, natural, organic and perhaps best of all, it's animal cruelty free and environmentally friendly as the packaging is biodegradable!
G-1 exfoliating Facial cleanser for boys and girls
'The G-1 exfoliating care face gel for girls and boys combines botamix (lappa burdock extracts, jasmin and mandarin) with BENTA BERRY exfoliating complex of white deadnettle and blueberry to regulate excess sebum secretion while eliminating dead cells of the skin. This formula purifies the face, leaving the skin soft and cleansed'.
This exfoliating facial wash contains 100% natural ingredients and is also paraben free. It is specifically designed to meet the needs of younger skin, particularly suiting people between the ages of 14 and 24. This product has been scientifically produced at the laboratories of the prestigious Université Paris Descartes and is not tested on animals.

Mango & Safflower Body Moisturiser
'Deeply nourish and moisturise your skin without luxurious Mango & Safflower Body Moisturiser, made with Fairtrade Mango Extract, Cane Sugar and Almond Oil, which are known for their conditioning and moisturising properties. This subtle body moisturiser leaves your skin feeling irresistibly soft, smooth and nourished'.
This body moisturiser has a light yet luxurious feel to it. It feels like silk on the skin and massages in easily. If you are a fan of delicious smelling lotions and potions, you will love this as it leaves your skin smelling good enough to eat. This product is also guilt free as the ingredients are all ethically sourced and it is a certified Fairtrade product so you can be sure that even the third world producers who helped to make this product were all paid a fair and stable price for their work / produce.

Tonifying oil with organic Peppermint essential oil
OR Relaxing oil with organic Juniper essential oil
'Used on the feet, this 100% natural concentrated massage oil tonifies the skin with purifying Peppermint, Tea Tree and Orange organic essential oil properties'.
100% of the total ingredients are from natural origin.
95.49% of the ingredients are from organic farming.
|Tulicos Tonifying Oil With Organic Peppermint Essential Oil|
This massage oil for the feet sounds amazing, in fact it sounds better than most of lotions and potions I usually put on my face and yet this is designed for use on the feet! Who doesn't love a good foot massage, it's so relaxing and de-stressing. And apparently, there is some scientific evidence to suggest that foot massage can have a beneficial effect on health overall, including eliminating impurities from the body and stimulating circulation and lymphatic drainage. This is great news as we now all have a fantastic excuse to take time out for a little foot pampering. This stuff does smell amazing and the cooling minty freshness is perfect for restoring and relaxing tired feet.
I really do think that the people at Betrousse have got a very unique approach to the now somewhat overcrowded beauty box industry and I think they really do stand out from the crowd in a very positive way. I love the fact that all of the products contained in their 'kits' or boxes are full size and that they are always high quality products. I think they offer excellent value for money and offer a gateway to the world of premium products for girls on a budget like me. I also appreciate the fact they offer lots of brands that are new to me as I want to try new things! I would also recommend popping over to their website here as they have lots of interesting beauty related info and tips as well as the opportunity to test products.
So, that's it for this review of the Betrousse Glitz and Glamour Box.
