Easter Beauty Box Swap

I was lucky enough to take part in the Easter Beauty Box Swap ran by Chloe from reality leaves lots to imagination.   This is my first time doing a swap like this so I wasn't sure what to expect, thankfully everything was made really clear and I was lucky enough to be paired with the lovely Lauren of the emerald dove.  We have lots in common (mainly an obsessive love of reading!) so this made it even more fun trying to choose what to pick for her,  I was a bit unsure but in the end I was quite happy with my choices, you can take a look at what I bought on Lauren's blog post



So I arrived home last week to see this amazing funky pink package waiting for me, that's got to cheer up anyones day right? When I opened it everything was wrapped up in this cute Slush Puppy tote bag and even contained a card, super sweet :)



 First thing I did was open the card, as soon as I saw it was Alice in Wonderland I actually squealed with excitement and ran around the house showing everyone!  She left me a super cute message inside, which lead me onto opening the bag.


The first thing I pulled out was this Simple kind to skin sun-kissed moisturising cream, this made me laugh because I had recently bought the Simple kind to skin+ moisturising cream with SPF and it has become my favourite daily moisturiser.  So much so that I was actually going to buy Lauren this for her Easter beauty box, great minds think alike!  I am really looking forward to trying this out and seeing if it gives me a real sun kissed glow!


Next I got these cat socks, how cute are these!  I love funky socks and hardly ever wear matching ones so these will defiantly get some wear.


The first thing I noticed when I opened the bag was that the whole thing smelt amazing, kind of like sherbet, it turns out this was the culprit!  It smells so good and it's from the Body Shop so I know it will feel amazing on my skin, defiantly going to be using this in my next bath.


 You can't go wrong with chocolate, I actually got Lauren Galaxy caramel chocolate mini eggs.  Again, great minds, to be honest this whole bar didn't last the day of me opening it, woops!


Lastly I got this mini milk lip balm, that's right, beauty products that smell like your favourite childhood ice cream.  I have to say this smells soooo gooood, I could just eat it, but somehow I don't think that would be wise...

Thank you again to Lauren for all tthis!  Did you like any of these products?  What do you think?
