Review: Betrousse Glitz and Glamour Box

You probably remember my recent review of the Betrousse Fairy Box as it included a giveaway, so I thought it would be nice to review their most recent box - Glitz & Glamour*

This box retails for just £10 and you recieve a whopping £70 worth of products, all of which are full sized. I do like that Betrousse differs from most beauty boxes in that you know what you are getting in advance and it's not samples, so you can decide if it's a box that works for you before ordering.

These are the five products that make up the Glitz & Glamour box, none of which I had tried before.

Jason normalising shampoo - I'm all for trying new shampoos and Jason was a brand I had heard quite a bit about but never taken the plunge with. I like that it uses all natural ingredients and the combination of rosewater and chamomile provides such a wonderful scent that it's a pleasure to use. The only downside to this is that I like to use the matching conditioners where possible so I might not get as much use out of this as I'd like.
Tulecos tonifying oil - This is a massage oil intended to tone and soften the skin on your feet using peppermint, tea tree, lavender, juniper and orange essential oils. I have a big hatred of feet so am appreciative of any products that can keep mine in shape. I may not enjoy massaging this into my feet but I cant deny it has already made my skin feel softer and I love that it is non greasy.
Fair naturally body moisturiser - This is the product I have been using the most, it is mango and safflower and smells absolutely delicious. I have been using this after exfoliating and showering, it's left my skin feeling so soft and I'll definately be tracking this down when I run out.
Benta Berry exfoliating facial cleanser - Oh how I love exfoliators, my skin always feels so fresh after a good scrub and this one is no different. This only has a very subtle scent as it's designed to be unisex. It is not harsh on the skin so I imagine it would be suitable for those with sensitive skin also. I'm really enjoying using this, I only wish it was a larger tube.
Make Believe Beauty lip gloss - Lastly it was nice to recieve a makeup product in this box, I can be a bit picky about lip glosses and I did find this a tad too shimmery for myself but I am sure I will get use out of it on my models. It was however easy to apply and not overly sticky.

Again I am really impressed with this box, this is the third Betrousse box I've had now and every time I've enjoyed the selection and quality of the products. It's definately nice to get a range of items and get a proper pamper sesh out of them when they first arrive which you couldn't do if they were all similar items.

If you want to find out more about any of these products or to order the box yourself, just follow the link at the beginning of this post. All the previous Betrousse boxes from the last year are also still available and they all look super fab as well.

I'd love to hear any of your thoughts on the above products if you've used them yourself, did you enjoy them as much as me?
