Christmas Green Beauty Swap - with Tania from Bow Tied Beauty

Back at the beginning of  November, Tania from Bow Tied Beauty and Ria from Naturia Beauty came together to host a Christmas Green Beauty Swap. Having loved the last swap I was part of, I signed up for it straight away.

I was actually paired up with Tania and after a few emails we decided on a price limit, post date and agreed to open our gifts on Christmas Day.

Now, I admit I took the first two pictures the day I received my parcel which is why they look different to the second two.  
The parcels were wrapped so beautifully! I love this candy-striped string and will definitely be picking some up for wrapping Christmas presents next year as I loved the simplicity of it.



I was blown away by everything that was inside, so many gorgeous gifts. Unfortunately I don't have a photo of the Christmas Cracker that the Weleda Skin Food came in as I was too excited and just ripped it open like a child.



Tania picked a fantastic selection of products for me, I'm over the moon with everything I received.
I'm so excited to try the Neom Three Nights of Peace and the mini Moa Balm as this was something I have wanted to try for a while now.
Tania also included some Kusmi Tea in Rose Green Tea - perfect for over indulgence at this time of year. The tin is beautiful however I did have a bit of an accident when opening it as the lid was a bit stiff ; I ended up with about a tablespoon of loose tea in my lap! No harm though as I was able to scoop it back into the tin.

A HUGE thank you to Tania for a brilliant swap. I'm so happy with everything you took the time to pick for me and I hope you loved yours too!

See what I got for Tania and her thoughts here!

    1. I have yet to try the bath soak (I used my winnings from your competition last night, and it was the best nights sleep I've had for a long time!)
      The collagen masks are amazing, my skin always looks so much brighter and fresh after I use them x

    1. I hadn't tried the Skin Food before as I had wondered if it would be too thick for me but after ripping open the cracker and trying it out, I was amazed at how good my hands felt after using it! Not too much for my skin at all! The neom set is going to be a real treat to use, I can't wait X
