Beauty Review: Betrousse Summer Break Kit


We all miss summer as Autumn kicks in, not that we ever get much of one in sunny old England. When I got the chance to delve into the Betrousse Summer Break Kit*, I jumped at it! Betrousse only provide kits with full sized samples, offering a no subscription service and letting you see exactly what you are order beforehand.

The Betrousse Summer Break kit contains 5 full sized samples:

Cinq Mondes Roses Petal Rain Mist (200ml)
This rose petal body mist is divine, almost like a perfume as it wraps you in a moisturising and lasting rose scent. It is created from a technique inspired by Eastern cleansing rituals and contains Moroccan rose extracts and concentrated roses, a true floral delight. All ingredients are organic or natural too! It is honestly one of the most beautiful rose scented sprays I have ever smelt! The Cinq Mondes Roses Petal Rain Mist is usually priced at £28.

Orhis Nourishing Face Cream (50ml)The Orhis Nourishing Face Cream is a lot thicker than most I have experienced. This 99.1% natural cream claims to nourish, repair and protect the face, especially good for prolonging that fading summer glow. The cream contains both cottonseed and Argan oil, making it great for all skin types, particularly dry and damaged like mine. The Argan oil is rich in natural vitamin E, protecting the skin from sun damage, reducing inflammation and against ageing. The cream is to be used daily, morning and night, I chose to as a makeup base and it left my skin feeling smooth and moisturised. The only complaint I had was the smell of the cream! It reminded me of a strange smelling baby powder, I am more a lover of floral and fresh scents. Orhis Nourishing Face Cream is usually priced at £28.

Lilas Blanc Secret Éclat Jeunesse (50ml)
This anti-aging cream impressed me the most out of the facial creams in the Betrousse Summer Break Kit. The cream came in a lovely glass container, it felt lightweight, sinking into my skin immediately, leaving me feeling fresh and awakened in the morning rush. Although this cream is obviously aimed at a mature market, I believe it is suitable for those looking to prevent aging, as well as those looking to heal against its process. Lilas Blanc claims "this effectiveness in wrinkle reduction has been demonstrated by various scientific studies and makes Lilas Blanc an incomparable range in the field of Premium Organic Anti-aging Skincare". Lilas Blanc Secret Éclat Jeunesse is usually priced at £36.50.

Cosmetoo Nails, Nail Art Kit Express
The Cosmetoo Nails, Nail Art Kit Express is seriously cute. The kit contains a pack of 20 pink bow nail stickers, a selection of small silver crystal rhinestones and a double-sided applicator stick. This kit will provide you with the sweetest manicure around, whatever time of the year. To apply you place the stickers and rhinestones with the applicator stick and seal with a coat of clear varnish. What I love about this kit is the ability to create your own looks and designs. The Nail Art Kit Express is usually priced at £3.90.

Benta Berry G-1 Moisturising Face Cream (30ml)
The Benta Berry G-1 Moisturising Face Cream is created for younger skin. Unlike Orhis, it is very light and has a lovely subtle berry smell (designed by a "famous perfumer"). The range was created with younger skin in mind (ages 12 to 24), dedicated to its specific needs and containing 100% natural active ingredients. The ingredients are gentle, aiding against excess oil production and soothing the skin. They even promote their 3 step skin care routine of cleansing day and night to remove impurities, moisturising to protect and exfoliating often to keep adolescent skin looking fresh and healthy every day. The Benta Berry G-1 Moisturising Face Cream is usually priced at £12.

Although the Betrousse Summer Break Kit is laden with facial creams, I find it a perfect all seasons fix, who doesn't want beautiful skin all year round! Betrousse even provided a freebie, a sample of Coslys sensitive skin shower gel with organic fig! The kit is worth £109 but Betrousse offer all this for £19, claim your summer back and order one now!
