International Goodie Swap
You want to try a brand that is not available in your part of the world? You're in the right place! The idea is to exchange cosmetics, candy and other goodies, which are easy accessible to you, for brands that you cannot get your hands on.

In your post, write about the brands you're interested in, you can also specify the products you'd like to receive. Also add which products/brands you can provide for the person you'll be swapping with.

The swaps should be discussed in private messages, this thread is just for writing down the products you can send and the ones you'd like to receive.

When you trade with someone, you can also publish the feedback about the swap you had with that person. Give her or him a rating of +, - or o (neutral). Feel free to publish photos of what you have received from your swapping partner along with the feedback of your swap.




Swapping is at your own risk - the Fashion Spot does not have part in this.


LET THE SWAPPING BEGIN!

Super excited about this thread! I've always wanted to do swaps but never had the opportunity.

Brands and products I'm interested in:
  • MAC (not available in my country and it's my favourite brand!)
  • Revlon (the newer products, like the lip butters, lip stains...)
  • The Body Shop (love their products, we don't have a store here)
  • Bath and Body Works (have become quite addicted from watching the hauls on YT)
  • Wet 'n Wild (I'm really interested in the palettes)
  • Origins skincare (also a brand I really want to try and isn't available where I live)

Some of the brands and products I can send to you:
  • Bioderma (the famous Solution Micellaire H2O)
  • La Roche Posay
  • Yves Rocher
  • Max Factor
  • Clarins
  • Clinique
  • YSL
  • Chanel
  • Dior
  • Lee Stafford
  • Gliss Kur
  • Essence
  • Catrice
  • Melvita
  • Nuxe
  • Maybelline
  • Balea

Other brands include everything that dm (DrogerieMarkt) carries, as well as Müller. Also anything from FeelUnique, HQhair and LookFantastic.

I'm looking forward to this thread coming to life!

Oh, and I think Miwi can vouch I'm a reliable swapper.

I'd love to find my USA swap buddy!

I have access to most of well-known european brands, I can get my hands also on the limited edition collections, just to name a few: Essence, Catrice, original german Nivea, Labellos, Alverde, Depend nail polishes, Bourjois, etc etc (you can always ask me on a private, if you're looking for something specific).

Things I'm interested in: most of that drugstore USA brands, such as L'oreal (we do have this, but very small assortment, compared to the USA one), Yes To Carrots, EcoTools brushes, MAC (we don't have that here, can you believe!?), Korres, Certain Dri,... and lastly.. nail polishes: China Glaze, OPI, Deborah Lippmann, Rescue Beauty Lounge, etc.

I'd also be interested in foreigner candy, such as Newman's Own Licorice Swirls, fruity Roll-ups, Reese peanut butter chip and tea bags.

I was lucky enough to do a little () nail polish swap with flyme2themoon back in December. What a wonderful swap partner! I got so many amazing nail polishes and she put a lot of effort into my package and she sent me extra goodies too! I hope I have her again for a swap partner.

I'm interested in:

° M.A.C.: One of my favourites, unfortunately not available in my country.
° NARS: Another favourite of mine. Their blushes are amazing, I wish I owned every single one.
° O.P.I. is the best nail polish brand out there, but they cost twice as much as in USA.
° P2 make-up and nail polishes
° Kiko nail polishes
° Revlon lip products and nail polishes
° L'Oreal mascaras, Colour Caresse Shine Stains and nail polishes (the assortment of Revlon, L'Oreal etc. is really poor here)
° The Body Shop: I LOVE LOVE TBS!
° Real Techniques
° Clinique Chubby Sticks
° Sleek
° Antipodes
° most of UK and US drugstore brands
° Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

I have access to:

- Essence
- Catrice
- DM Drogerie Markt products (Balea, Alverde)
- Depend
- Bourjois
- French Pharmacy brands (Nuxe, Avene, La Roche Posay, Bioderma etc.)
- Melvita & L'Occitane
- ...

Feel free to PM me for more details.

It was a pleasure swapping with you too! I received an awesome selection of nail polishes (holos , glitters, creams...) + several extras (including a deliciously scented hand-cream, chocolate/candy, & tea!) And the packaging was so cute & creative! Yes, we'll definitely swap again.


I absolutely recommend Miwi as a swap partner. She's very thoughtful and reliable. Anyone who swaps with her won't be disappointed!

So, how is this swap thing going so far?
My first swap is almost ready for mailing. Should be good to go by next week. I loved doing this swap and I can't wait to do another one in May.
