Today I wanted to share with you one of my most recent swaps. I’m really excited about this one because I received quite a few samples that I’ve been eyeing for a while.
What I traded
Fekkai Advanced – Salon Technician Color Care Shampoo (2 fl oz, $5 value)
Color Club – Mod in Manhattan (Wanderlust Collection) (0.25 fl oz, $2 value)
Previse – HydroMilk (0.17 fl oz, $4.08 value)
These are all samples that I received in my Birchboxes over the months. I wasn’t too thrilled about the Fekkai shampoo because it contains sulfate which I find too drying for my highlighted hair. The Color Club nail polish is an off-white color that isn’t very flattering on my skin tone. Lastly, I decided to swap the Previse moisturizer because I have too many moisturizers as is and wasn’t particularly interested in this one.
What I received
Perricone MD – Face Finishing Moisturizer (0.07 fl oz, $2.42 value)
NuMe – Intense Renewal Hair Mask (0.68 fl oz, $3.40 value)
Sisley – Black Rose Cream Mask (0.38 oz, $28.59 value)
Alterna – Bamboo Volume Plumping Strand Expand (0.85 fl oz, $4.68 value)
Yes, I did in fact swap one moisturizer for another but I’ve heard really good things about the Perricone MD brand and I’ve been wanting to try their products for a while. I also received the NuMe Intense Renewal Hair Mask in this swap. It gets rave reviews and I’m always on the lookout for a good hair mask to nourish my dry ends. Next, I traded for the Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask. I’m a sucker for face masks and the full size of this one is super expensive – $158 for just over 2 oz. Lastly, I received the Alterna Plumping Strand Expand. I’m almost out of the Living Proof Full Thickening Cream and really wanted to try this one to see how it compares.
This was a great trade all around. I love everything I received and because of the price of the Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask the total value of the swap came out in my favor. I still can’t believe the total value of the products I received compared to what I traded for. This has probably been my best trade so far and I’m hoping to score some great products like these in future swaps.
