What I got in my Christmas Box Swap

Hey there,

Once upon a time, way back in 2014, I set up a Christmas Box Swap. My partner in the swap was Lisa from Lisahh Jayne. I have known Lisa for nearly as long as I have been blogging and we have become friends, so I was excited to swap with her,

A couple of weeks before Christmas, a parcel arrived on my door mat and when I opened it, here is what I found...

Lisa managed to treat me to a great collection of products and I actually haven't tried anything that she bought me before.

Soap and Glory is a brand that I only ever dipped into a couple of times...much to the disappointment of some bloggers. I received three products from Lisa,which were the Righteous Butter, Scrub 'em and Leave 'em and also the Love at First Blush. I've never tried any of these products so I'm excited to have them in my life.

Another brand that featured strongly in the box was Bourjois. Believe it or not, I haven't tried much from this brand either. In fact the only thing I've tried is the Healthy Mix Foundation, which isn't my favourite foundation in the world. As you can see I got given two eyeshadow sets, a mascara, a nail polish and a lipstick to boot.

You might have spotted the Revlon Matte Balm in Striking. I don't own many of these balms but this shade looks like a nice one. The other lip product is a tin of Vaseline Lip Therapy in the Rosy lips variety.

The final things in the box included a nail file from The Body Shop, a set of  pretty pegs and finally some wildflower seeds. I love the variety of this box that Lisa made for me. Thank you to her for my box, I hope you liked your goodies.

I really enjoyed setting up the box swap and I will definitely set up another one this year.

Lots of Love,


  1. This is such a great box with fab set of products. I've tried plenty of soap & glory but not so much the other brands either x
