Box Swap No #3



Another Fantastic boxswap, done with a fabulous girl called Ruth.
This box had a limit of £15, and i think Ruth did fantastic and i love it!!

First of all, i loved the box, wrapping and the obvious care that she took with it! Reusing one of the gorgeous boxes from Joliebox, inside i opened it to a well wrapped inside with gorgeous gold little angels scattered on the top :)

A really cute touch was the menu of items she included in the top of the box! Not had that before, very sweet!!

Ok, onto the items! For the £15 limit, i think Ruth did fantastic. I have lots of items to try and test, and full size items that i think are fantastic!

So on to the contents!! In this picture is:
*L'Occitane Sweet Cherry bath Soap (what a gorgeous fragrance)
*Avon Darling Curves Mascara (i love trying new mascaras!!!)
*Stila Lip Glaze (Joy) -really looking forward to trying this! LOVE lip items!!

A full picture of fantastic goodies!!

On the top row is Barry M chameleon nail polish in blue which will turn to purple when a top coat is added (i do have other colours in this range, but not this, so really looking forward to this!!)
The next two items are from Cath Kidston -wild Rose Body Lotion , Bluebell Shower Gel and a Pocket mirror and under that is a cute packet of tissues to round off the gorgeous little collection!
Next to those is a little tub of Benefit Total Moisturiser Face Cream (heaven, as i love Benefit, and love trying creams!!), and a gorgeous little lip balm from the Body Shop in Passionberry (yum!!).

This "Be Enchanted" Eye shadow set, is really really cute, and i love the box! The colours are going to be a first for me,as im normally a smokey shade, but how could i not try something from such a cute case!!

Ruth included a few extra samples for me to give a whirl!
-Mary Kay Timewise Matte-wear Foundation
-Montagne Party Shimmer
-Paulas Choice Skin Balancing Mask
-Priadara Triple & Gel
-Sun Shots protection
-Elemis Purifying Mask

Oh and how could i forget to take pictures of the two gorgeous Yankee Wax Tarts in refreshing  and clean scents of "Soft Blanket" and "Sparkling Snow"

SO, there it is, box number 3 with a £15 limit.
i LOVE it.
I did a review of the February Glossybox the other compare what they put in the box, and to compare what Ruth gave me in this one....
I really know which one i prefer! And no feeling of worry of being can you be with a box like that!!

A huge, massive thank you to Ruth for doing a box swap with me, and i really, really hope to do one with her again soon!!

I have 2 more on the go at the is on its way to me, and one is in the middle of being complied!
I never tire of doing surprise box swaps, and hope they give you a sight of what a GOOD box can be!!!

So to Ruth and all my other great box swaps.......
