There is a Facebook page called ‘Be a Beauty Correspondent’ where you can team up with someone from say France and swap beauty boxes. I met the lovely Chris and arranged a swap of Jolie Box for me and Glossy Box for her. I have been waiting patiently since April!
The lovely Chris sent me a beautiful card (how cute is it?) and wow a massive bundle of samples to try – luckily I had stashed away some for her too!
So in the box we have the Jolie and a Grazia mag, Grazia is my favourite magazine ever! I do wish I remember more of what I learnt of French at school so I could actually read it!
First on the list is Clarins After Sun Moisturiser – love Clarins and looking forward trying this, that is if the sun comes out enough to warrant and after sun!
Rene Furterer Carthame Hair Mask – Never heard of the brand and love a hair mask so this will be great to try. It has a lovely light scent to it too.
L’Occitane Hand Cream Pivoine Flora – I already own a mini (and these are mini) L’Occitane hand cream and know that they are a lovely product! This one has a gorgeous rose scent.
Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Varnish in 210 Ethereal – I like Rimmel nail varnishes and think they are really good value for money but have already had this colour and didn’t really like it which is a shame.
Also in the box is a nail file (can’t have too many of them) and a heart shaped candle – no smell but cute!
A lovely box but worthy of a 1st anniversary box? I’ll leave that up to you…
And a massive thank you to the lovely Chris for arranging the swap! xx
