Beauty Bloggers Valentines Love Package Swap with Elisa!

Back in February I signed up to take part in the Valentines Love Package Swap hosted by Kelly at Lipgloss Love Affair. I got paired with the beautiful and lovely Elisa from Finland! Her blog Miten niin liikaa? (Which I think is English for "What do you mean too much?"), is really great and worth checking out if you like plenty of beauty reviews! She writes in both Finnish and English!

I was really excited to receive my cute little package and I wasn't disappointed! Here's what I received:
*Moomin Lollipop (this was gobbled up immediately)

* Gentle Cleansing Wipes with Arctic Linen Seed

*2 in 1 Detoxifying Mask & Micro Scrub with Arctic Cloudberry

*Two (beautiful) shades of Wild Rose Lipgloss


All the items were from a Finnish brand called Lumene which uses all of the arctics wonderful natural resources in their products. I'm a huge believer in natural products so I was very excited to reveive these.

I immediately gobbled up the lollipop and I was so happy to see it was Moomins as I adore them!! The bag I carry my books and laptop around in everyday has Moomins on it :)

I tried the face scrub the other night and it was wonderful. I've never heard of Cloudberry before but it smells beautiful! I will do a proper review on this soon! I also popped on both the lipglosses and the colours are lovely and both perfect for wearing everyday!

This is the first swap I've ever taken part in and I absolutely LOVED it! I used to be a big fan of pen-pals when I was a kid, I think I had about 5 at once from all corners of the world, and swaps are much like that :) I was very excited to receive beauty items from another country and I was probably even more excited to put together a package of things from the UK!

I enjoyed the experience SO much that I'm planning to run my own swap. I will be providing you darlings with the details and a sign up form in the middle of next week so stay tuned! Let me know in the comments if you're interested in taking part :)

Have you taken part in a swap before? ♥

  4. I'm glad you liked the products ^_^ My deadlines are far gone now, and I'm gonna review your package soon! Can you believe it, I managed to write my bachelor thesis... Now only peer review left and then I'm all free (except for the dozen exams I need to do during spring haha :D).

    I absolutely love Moomins. The books and comic strips are great! And everyone about my age +- 5 years has watched the Moomin television series. It's a crucial part of my childhood. :)

    1. Ahh I'm so jealous that you're almost done - mine is 5 years in total and I have one more left. I cannot wait to be done now :) I still have a few assignments left to do, but I'm at home now for the Easter holiday which is so lovely. I had a major obsession with the Moomins when I was little and Pingu also! The big scary blue blob witch thing in Moomins scared me loads though :) xxx
