Betrousse UK Pretty Beauty Kit

Monday, October 29, 2012


Here is another box from BeTrousse UK the company that gives you full sized products within each box instead of 4 samples and one full sized product. Each non subscription box is £19 + p&p but the retail value of each box is phenomenal.

Pretty Beauty Kit contains not 5 but 9 full sized products ranging from hair, skin care & make-up.




Papier Poudre
Gift pack of 3 booklets (65 sheets per book) £7.95
This is noted as the most original product in the box. These sheets of powdered paper have special absorbent qualities for cleansing the pores and soaking up excess oils to keep the face natural and fresh.


Vera Valenti
Valetta Eyeshadow - Pink £2
This reminds me of one eyeshadow that was in an August Glossybox and looking through my archives, I was correct - I reviewed the palette here!
It's still chalky, still market stall appeal and just a huge no for me.

Cupcake Organic
The Frankincense & Orange Day Cream 30ml £16
Dry & Mature skin types. Helps protect and repair your skin throughout your day no matter what you are doing. 100% of the total ingredients are of natural origin. Environmently Friendly, 72.5% of the total ingredients are from Organic Farming. Containing lemon grass, ginger and vanilla bean - I thought that the ginger would pull through and be dominant but it doesn't smell too bad, unfortunately as this isn't for my skin type it will be going in a pile to someone who can give it some use!

Saffron London Cracking Polish 14ml £0.75 | Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp Volume Gloss in Pink 10ml £13.90
Crackle nail polish is still lingering, unfortunately I cannot comment on how well this works as nail reviews are on the back burner until my nail strength and growth is up 100%
Yves Rocher lipgloss this is non sticky, I wouldn't say it was sticky and I quite like the applicator which wasn't stiff and moved with the curves of the lip. Swatched below, there's not much colour on top of my lips but it's a great everyday colour.


Arganti Pure Argan Oil 60ml £10
I'm such a fan of Argan oil and love that this is in the box. I think I'm going to put this aside for hair treatments and further into the cold months when I will possibly revisit the OCM ( oil cleansing method)

Essyta Cosmetics Body Lotion for all skin types 250ml £13.50
Quite pricey body lotion but with such key ingredients as shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, green tea and sweet almond oil. It seems like a fantastic body lotion to have around:
Formulated to maintain skin’s suppleness and silky softness. Its natural blend of vitamins and minerals provides maximum hydration to the skin. Nourish and restore skin softness. It natural ingredients regenerates cells tissue. This body Lotion provides comfort and vitality to the skin.

Kesari Anti-Age 30ml, £47
This organic cream is an anti-wrinkle serum cream to find a perfect glowing skin.
It is a high performance skin care: reduces significantly surface lines and wrinkles in 28 days! The Radiant is an anti wrinkle from 30-35 years to find a perfect glowing skin. If you are less then 30 years old, it's an ideal gift for your friends, family.
Idealy this isn't for me - yet.

Yves Rocher Hydra Refreshing Gel Cleanser 200ml, £11
Removes all traces of make-up while cleansing and leaving the skin comfortable. It's good for those with sensitive and normal eyes. 0% PARABEN, COLORANT, PERFUME, MINERAL OIL
98.9% OF THE TOTAL INGREDIENTS ARE FROM NATURAL ORIGIN. 20% OF THE TOTAL INGREDIENTS ARE FROM ORGANIC FARMING. I can't wait to use this - um seriously probably in the new year as I have so much skincare to review but this will be nice to use once I get to it.


I do think for £19 you get such a great deal with products. Once again I've got more natural beauty products, some companies I've already been introduced to and some new. 5/9 products that I would use, which isn't bad.

This is a box that does aim towards me and would rather get full sized products that I can use and get real use out of them to see if they work.

Have you tried Betrousse UK yet?

One Comment so far to 'Betrousse UK Pretty Beauty Kit'

  1. Great post! I like the concept of Be Trousse - I like the fact that you can see what you are getting, everything is full size and often you get the chance to try brands you would not have known about before. I got one of the boxes a while ago and I like it. The value of the items was far more than £19 and I am really happy with it. This is the future of beauty boxes if you ask me, not the less than impressive surprise boxes from brands like Glossy etc

    I dont understand why they included the awful cheap nail polish and eye shadow though, it doesnt seem to fit in with the quality of the other items? Strange if you ask me!
