Betrousse Absolutely Fabulous Box

 Last week I was excited to receive the new Betrousse Beauty Box. 
I have spent the last couple of days trying out the products that was in this lovely box. 
You can buy the box here for £19 however the contents of the box are worth a whopping £119. 

As you can see the items are as usual wrapped in lovely pink tissue paper. 
I love receiving beauty products from brands I've not heard of or 
never tried so it was fab to see such a lovely range
of items. 

The box contains the following Items: 
- Duck Island Shampoo 
- Organic Surge facial wash
- Spa Find Inch-wrap firming gel
 -Leor facial exfoliate creme 
- Helenere 24 hour cream 
- Helenere Intensive Serum 

Helenere Intensive Serum
The Intensive Serum, £32 for 15ml is my least favourite item in the box. 
This is because in general I'm not that keen on face Serum's. 
I did however give the Serum a try and did find my skin to 
feel smooth and soft after applying and I did like that it 
is suitable for all skin types. 
The Serum has a complex of Edelweiss extract and
prevents a loss of moisture in your skin and is ideal for day/night nourishment. 

Helenere 24 hour Cream
The 24 hour cream retails at £30 for 30ml and is a moisturising cream 
with protective properties based on a pure and exclusive complex of extract of Edelweiss. 
The 24 hour cream leaves skin feeling fresh and enhances make up. 
I applied this after giving myself a mini facial over the weekend and 
found that it absorbs into your skin pretty fast leaving it smooth and soft. 

Duck Island Sensuous Shampoo
The Duck Island Sensuous Shampoo, £14.98 for 250ml is a luxury product
that I found from reading on other bloggers posts is used in some hotel chains. 
I love the cute little duck on the packaging and that it is in a pump bottle
which for me is a plus when it comes to high end products. 
The shampoo has such a lovely and refreshing scent and is easy to 
lather, after use my hair felt lovely and silky smooth.

Organic Surge Pure and Clean Facial Wash
The product I was most looking forward to using! 
The Organic Surge facial wash, £5.49 for 200ml 
is brand I have heard of but never tried before. 
I use a facial wash every day so was very happy to try out this one
that is new to me. 
The facial wash has 100% natural foaming action which rinses away
make up and impurities without stripping your skin of its natural moisture. 
I love this product, it smells so fresh and kept my skin so silky soft
and I can from time to time suffer from sensitive skin so it's 
really ideal for me. 

Spa Find Sculpted Silhouette Inch-wrap Firming Gel
I was also very excited about this product.
The Inch-wrap firming gel, £25.30 for 250ml contains a Iso-Slim Complex, a combination of natural slimming and fat-burning agents Caffeine, Carnitine and Spirulina,
 blended with Soy Isoflavones skin is tightened and lifted,
 and cellulite is visibly reduced with the aid of natural Ivy Extract, Dead Sea Minerals
 and Hyaluronic Acid, known as the key to the fountain of youth.
The gel has a pleasant scent and absorbs into your skin pretty quickly
 and has loads of benefits I have mainly tried this on my thighs but
am going to give this a go on my tummy area and arms too. 

Leor Facial Exfoliate Creme
A product I had mixed thoughts on before trying. 
The Facial exfoliate creme £11 for 100gr contains smooth pumice to 
gently exfoliate your face and neck area by removing dead skin cells. 
Before using I thought it maybe will turn out to be just another facial exfoliate 
but I liked that it is lavender scented. 
After use well my opinion is different, after use my skin felt so
smooth and fresh and I generally felt very relaxed due to the 
lovely lavender scent.  It's a product that is ideal when I 
have my weekly facial/pamper sessions as it makes me feel so
relaxed and makes my skin feel so good.
