Swap with Sarah/ PorcelainGirlBeauty from the USA

Let me begin by saying, the card Sarah attached is beautiful!  And somehow it really matches the BBW 'Country Chic' design.  Lovely!

Okay, so a while back Ms. Porcelain contacted me and see if I can send her some BB creams, among other things.  Of course I can, and I did.  And here I'm showing what Sarah sent me in the swap.

Bath and Body Works
  • Aromatherapy - Energy - Orange Ginger scented candle
  • Moonlight Path fragrance mist
  • Country Chic shower gel
  • Paris Amour triple moisture body cream
Every time I do a US swap I ask for BBW, because if there's one store I wish I can bring from the States to my city, it is it!  The Orange Ginger candle smells really energising, and I'm saving it for a really tiring day.  I already own another Moonlight Path fragrance mist - in the old bottle - which scent I adore, so I'm happy to get an extra back-up.

Country Chic and Paris Amour are scents Sarah picked up for me after I told her what some of my favourite perfumes are.  These 2 new scents are surprisingly beautiful!  I love them so much, really.  Country Chic is fresh - have not yet used it - also saving it for later.  Paris Amour I briefly tried - the scent is floral, edible and reminds me a little of yoghurt~

Face and Lips
  • Montagne Jeunesse Deep Cleansing Clean Up Mud
  • Claire's Lipgloss
  • Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter #Sweet Tart
  • Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter #Tutti Frutti
  • Physician's Formula pH Matchmaker lipglss #Pink
You can see the lip swatches of the above 4 lip products.  See this link and this link.  I have got several Montagne Jeunesse masks before, and there's some review in my blog, somewhere.  So happy to get another one to try!

Hair and Body
  • Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo Volumizing for fine/oily hair
  • Nivea Creme
  • Nivea Essentially Enriched Body Lotion
  • Nivea Smooth Sensation Body Lotion
  • Philosophy Amazing Grace perfumed shampoo, boath & shower gel
  • Butter London #Black Knight
  • Julep #Christina
  • Julep Facial For Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub
I asked for travel size dry shampoos because the only one that I got is a Batiste original, which is the only one I can find in Watson's/Mannings/Sasa, all the major drugstore/beauty stores in HK.  Apparently dry shampoo isn't very popular yet here, but my hair is fine and soft and lacks volume.  Happy to get a Tresemme to play with! The stores in HK do carry Tresemme but for some reason, not their dry shampoo...

Beside the Tresemme, it is really exciting to see another travel size of Philosophy shower gel in the scent amazing grace.  This is one of Sarah's favourites, so far it smells good - I shall save it for some special occasions to try~ :P

Some extra shots of the 2 nail polishes.  I wore Black Knight the other day.  Sadly, the texture is a bit disappointing.  Also the brush is rather flimpsy to work with.

  1. Hey!

    Lovely post! I'm so glad most of the things you love! I figured from reading your blog you might love that leopard print brush handle on the lip gloss ;). I'm sorry the Butter London shade didn't work out for you :(. That's such a popular shade over here and around blogs! Hopefully the next one I send will work out better for you ;).

    1. yay yay I'm so happy with what you sent - maybe it's just this bottle of Butter London, I do read a lot of good reviews on this one. Definitely looking forward to the next bottle! The best is yet to come :P
