Green Beauty Swap with Julie from Let’s Talk About Green

I always get so excited when I receive an e-mail from Ria about the #GreenBeautySwap. This year I chose to do it internationally again and I was paired with the lovely Julie from Let’s Talk About Green (formerly, Make Up Passion Beaute) who lives in Canada. She chose some AMAZING products for me, I couldn’t believe it when I kept opening things! Here’s what she got for me…

This deodorant from Meow Meow Tweet was on my wishlist for ages as it’s baking soda free and I’ve had irritation from other natural deodorants before. It smells so good! She also gave me a lip balm from the same company in Cinnamon Mint…mmm two of my favourite scents!

Two samples that Julie sent me were from Laurel (SWOOOOOOON!) and Odacite. I am looking forward to trying both of these!

Julie had been blogging about The Good Hippie and their products sounded so lovely. Julie sent me their Love Butter which has lavender, ylang ylang and jasmine so has a very sensual scent, gorgeous!

One of the most exciting products I opened was the Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin B Cleansing Oil…..O.M.G. I was so so so excited to see this as I don’t think it’s available in the UK. I am going to keep this for a while to use up some of my cleansers but I’ll probably have to crack it open soon as I won’t be able to resist!

Julie also sent me this absolutely gorgeous nail polish from the brand Square Hue. It’s a dark grey but it has tiny specks of gold glitter and it’s so so pretty! Square Hue are a 5-free American nail polish brand and not one that I’ve heard of before but it’s basically a nail polish subscription box!

Julie also put in a few 100% Pure samples as well as lots and lots of tea!! She also told me that she ordered from Caru Skincare but it hadn’t arrived and she wanted to send my parcel so it arrived before Christmas so she is very very kindly sending me the rest of my parcel when it arrives!

Julie it has been so lovely swapping with you, I couldn’t have chosen better for myself!
