Hi everyone and Happy Halloween! :)

Last month I got in touch with Katie from who tweeted saying that she was organising an Autumn beauty swap. This is my first ever beauty swap and I was paired with; John from - and this is what he sent me. 

We set a limit for around £20, which gave us enough to buy a few products each, these swaps are such a great idea, you can buy products you love and want someone else to try as well as being sent products you have never tried or never heard of. 

Me and John spoke quite a bit before we started shopping for each other, and I told him that I suffer from oily skin so I was super excited with the products I have been sent.

This is what my box included;
Korres - moisturiser
Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask
Potters Herbals - Distilled Witch Hazel
Ren - Clarifying Cleanser
Balm Balm - Lip Balm and more
Nourish - mini moisturises

I have used the famous Witch blemish stick several times before ever since I was a teen and I still do now so I cannot wait to try this product. My skin still goes through random breakouts so I hope this clears everything up. 

Origins has always been a brand I have always wanted to try, so I am super happy to be sent this as well as this I love the idea of the Balm Balm which can be used on all areas, this will come in handy when I go out, especially with the colder days approaching. 

Have you taken part in any beauty swaps before, I'd love to see your blog post and see what you were sent?

I am still sending my Primark cut out ankle boots on eBay if you fancy a peak.
