Surprise Jubilee Swap

Over on the Beauty Box Swaps page (linked at the side) the l6vely admin ladies organise surprise/secret swaps every now and again, all so far have had a theme, we've done a Christmas one, a valentines one and an Easter swap. The first two, worked similarly to a secret santa, everyone who wanted to partake would message admin, and they'd secretly get paired with someone, but neither knew who the other was paired with. The format of the swaps, i believe from now on, is that people choose their own partners, and set their own price limit, so everyone knows who their swapping with and how much they are spending.

This months secret swap was Jubilee themed! I completely forgot to take a photo of all my swap goodies wrapped up, they were wrapped in gorgeous red, white and blue wrapping tissue paper. Very patriotic!
and here's what i got....

- Pumice Foot Scrub
- Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser
- Dove Intensive Conditioner
- Mango Body Butter
- Olay Essential Cleansing Wipes
- Very Berry Face Mask
- Maybelline Eyeliner
- Miss Sporty Mascara
- Maybelline Colour Tattoo
- Revlon Lip Butter
- 17 Glitter Eyeliner
- Barry M Dazzle Dust
- Maybelline Nail Polish
- Max Factor Eyeshadow Trio
- Frontcover Single Baked Eyeshadow

I swapped with a lovely lady called Sharon, and our limit was £20! As you can see, I think she went waaay over that. But i absolutely LOVE everything i got, I've already tried out a couple of the things. The Vitamin E cleanser smells amazing, and leaves my skin beautifully soft, and the mango body butter smells delicious! I'm also totally in love with Revlon Lip Butters, Sharon sent me Peach Parfait and its gorgeous, I'm also really liking the mascara, I've never tried Miss Sporty mascara before but I'm pretty please with it.

Unfortunately i cant include a photo of all the things I'm sending to Sharon, as I've been a bit slack and am yet to send it, but i shall take a photo and blog it once i know she's opened it.

I really love these surprise swaps and cannot wait to do another one!

Lots of Love
