GIVEAWAY: Betrousse box

No Trinket Tuesday today, instead I'm excited to bring a special giveaway for you all. I'm sure most of you have heard of Betrousse by now, one of the many beauty boxes on the market, but this one hails from France and each box can be bought as a one off purchase.

The lovely people at Betrousse sent me one of their fairy boxes* to try out and they've given me a second one to give away to one of you guys. The price changes slightly with each box, this one retails at £19 instead of £97, that's a whopping saving of £78.

Before I give you the details on how to enter, here is what I thought of the products:
  • Anti-blemish Skinetica - This is a product I have a tester of from a previous box and judging by the amount it got raved about in the blogosphere I'm sure most of you have already heard of it. I really liked this so am excited to have a full sized bottle now to keep those blemishes at bay!
  • Charme D Orient massage oil - Lets be honest, I'm very unlikely to be using this as a massage oil, but it still makes a lovely body oil for after a shower, leaving my skin feeling lovely and soft without being greasy. It also smells absolutely delicious as it is formulated with sweet almond oil.
  • Saffron cracking nail polish - We've all tried cracking nail polishes, at least since BarryM brought theirs out a few years ago, this is another great example of one. Easy to apply, good consistency, cracks well and a lovely matte finish.
  • Soins Experts cream - This was my favourite product in the box, I do love a good cream and this feels really luxurious on the skin. It's not heavily scented which I tend to prefer for face products and it left my skin feeling nice and hydrated.
  • Forte Pharma slimming aid - I can't tell you much about this as I'm not sure I'll be trying it, I'm always very dubious of diet pills and slimming aids. Apparently this product works in harmony with the body's natural biorhythm with no nasty side effects. "TURBOSLIM CHRONOACTIV provides different active ingredients at different times of the day to maximise or inhibit the way the body naturally processes and absorbs food." I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has tried these before as I know they're available in Boots and Superdrug over here.
  • Montagne Jeunesse clay face mask - Another brand everyone will have likely tried before, Montagne Jeunesse are the king of affordable face masks and I've always been a massive fan of their peel off masks. This is one I haven't tried before but I do reaaaally like clay masks so I'm excited to give it a go!
  • Tattyoo transfers - Lastly this is a fun little item, some temporary tattoos made specially for Betrousse. I tried some of the little stars on my wrist as I have stars tattooed on me already and they're easy to use and last a good few days.

Now for the exciting bit, you can win one of these boxes by entering via the Rafflecopter form below. The giveaway will run for one week and the only mandatory rules are that you must be a follower of this blog via GFC, though there are a few other ways to gain extra entries too.
