    My ultimate swag bag would look VERY similar to this bag, Rachel! 1) Nuface. I’m obsessed with taking care of my skin and trying out new products and tools! I’ve been incorporating facial massage into my routine and I would love to start a facial “fitness” routine! 2) Kiehls midnight recovery oil. I received this as part of a Christmas present and it was such a luxurious product! The smell was very calming and I loved how my skin felt moisturized but not oily in the morning. 3) Skyn Iceland eye gels. I received a sample of these in my birchbox and they are the perfect refresher! 4) Tata harper resurfacing mask. All natural and gives an amazing glow! Perfect for right before a date. 5) Lots of lush bath bombs. Such a treat! I love to give these as presents to my sister- it makes a bath that much more relaxing! Thank you for offering this amazing giveaway, Rachel!

      1. Laura Mercier Silk Cream Foundation
      I believe that it makes any skin look younger and healthier.

      4. Laura Mercier Body Soufle- it’s so luxurious and it smells and feels like a Holiday in the tub or shower. But it’s not something you’d get yourself.

    • Cristina Goff December 12, 2015 at 8:21 pm

      Hi, Rachel!

      For my Ultimate Swag Bag, I first would include some pretty perfume. One of my favorites is Elie Saab; it is light and fresh and would be a great go- to perfume!

      I would also make sure to add my favorite moisturizer- Say Yes to Blueberries. Even though it may not be listed as a heavy night cream, this is the only lotion that helps my skin stay moisturized even throughout the winter.

      A great fast mask would also be in my bag. Freeman’s Charcoal mask is refreshing and deep cleaning and one of my all time favorite masks.

      I would also add in a pretty pink lipstick. I love YSL’s Pink in Confidence. I’m sure it would look great on many skin tones!

      Lastly, I would add in a deep conditioner. I tried the Macadamia deep conditioner once and really thought it added shine and moisture to my hair.

      I think you did a great job picking out items for your swag bag, Rachel! I am glad you are your girlfriends got to enjoy them!

      Merry Christmas to you all!

    (1) My Nest perfume, because it has the best scent with out being over powering.
    (2) Lots of body lotion because my skin is very dry and as the weather continues to get colder you always need some moisturizer!
    (3) A glam glow face mask because who doesn’t like to pamper themselves?
    (4) Some pretty eyeshadows from Urban Decay because they last for a long time
    (5) Last but not least some pumpkin spice candles to make wherever you are delightful!


  • Re'Nita December 11, 2015 at 5:26 pm

  • Jennifer F December 11, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    I love your blog and you tube channel!
    The 5 products I would include are:
    1) Caudalie Divine Oil – i received an ornament last year with this in it, and i used it all year long – it left my face soooooo soft and helped my complexion, I think.
    2) Urban Decay Naked Pallet -any one of them would work. I’ve never tried a high end eye pallet before.
    3) Guerlain Lingerie de Peau liquid foundation – I just tried a sample and I’m in love!
    4) Sunday Riley Blue Moon cleansing balm – I’ve heard rave reviews and I like the softer balm/oil cleansers so much!
    5)Pixi Glow tonic – I have been wanting to try this for months!

  • Lisa Broadley December 11, 2015 at 5:32 pm

    I’m just recently trying to get into makeup/beauty. I had a son 10 mths ago so ive been trying to experiment a bit more. So my swag bag is not ‘my holy grail’ just yet. But typically when I travel I usually bring Maybelline Fit Me concealer & powder, Essence blush, Revlon colorburst & of course Neutrogena moisture oil-free cream (spf 15). Honestly that’s what I can afford right now. I’m really interested in Tarte cosmetics and would love to try any of their palettes.

  • Annie December 11, 2015 at 5:33 pm

    Hey Rachel
    I never win anything but I love your videos so much that I just had to visit your blog. They have seriously become the highlight of my youtube time every week.
    Im obsessed with make up these days. So I will probably have a Laura Mercie translucent powder, Mac lipstick (shade depending on the persons prefrence), Urban Decay Naked, a really hydrating mosturizer and Masscara!

  • Allison Kiste December 11, 2015 at 5:46 pm

    Its so extremely sweet of you to do this. Everything looks so wonderful in this bag. My husband is the only now who works in our family so it would be awesome to do a little spa night with him to help him relax.
    My 5 items would all be similar things for him.
    -Facial masks. We love to just lay down and relax after our son has gone to bed.
    -Bath bombs. Again, a super relaxing thing to do that we never get to.
    -A new eyeshadow palette. perhaps Naked 3? I always want to look my best for date nights. they are so rare that I want to really dress up for them.
    -Facial night creme. My skin has been extremely dry. Thanks winter. haha. It would be wonderful to get something that would help.
    lastly, – a perfume. One that can be “my scent” that everyone knows you by. I haven’t quite found a good one yet.

  • Eugenia December 11, 2015 at 5:47 pm

    1. A fun face mask! I am currently obsessed with the Fresh Rose Face Mask. The smell is just amazing and it makes my skin feel so great!
    2. Mascara. As a natural blonde, mascara is a must to make my eyelashes pop. My all time fave is L’oreal’s Voluminous Original Mascara.
    3. Crest 3D White Strips because who doesn’t want a whiter smile?
    4. A Mahogony Teakwood Candle from Bath & Body Works. Candles soothe the soul and smell great!
    5. A red lipstick. Currently obsessed with Tarte’s Lip Surgence Lip Crayon. It always makes me feel so glam!

  • Anu December 11, 2015 at 5:51 pm

    Hi Rachel,
    I adore your channel and we both share our love of Celine Dion. I follow you on Instagram as well. My swag bag would contain Tarte mascara, Kate Somerville Retasphere, Josie Maran Argan oil, Shea Moisture body scrub and some pretty nail polishes in pastel colors. I haven’t visited a spa in ages since I’ve had babies so I’d probably throw in a spa gift card as well.
    Ps. Your skin is just beautiful!

  • Kindle Eason December 11, 2015 at 5:51 pm

    Love everything you do! Having two kids I am dreaming of a girls trip like this. Looked so amazing and relaxing! My swag bag would include:

  • Jessica Gollaz December 11, 2015 at 6:01 pm

    1. Massage lotion because you can always use a massage, even to yourself!
    2. Some homemade treats like cookies or brownies just as a guilty pleasure. 😉
    3. Some comfy slippers. I want them to be comfy and cozy.
    4. Face masks – So much fun to have some pampering with your girls on top of the more pampering at the spas but just be more intimate at the hotel room ya know!
    5. Lastly I would include a good pair of sleeping eye covers with a cute print on them. So fancy. Lol

  • Maram December 11, 2015 at 6:01 pm

    I am a new mom so i would put
    1) snacks
    2) make up wipes
    3) deodorant or body spray
    4) mascara or some type of make up
    5) glam glow face mask or sheet mask

    These just seem like basic essentials for a new mommy. So funny because before being a mom i would have said perfume, expensive make up, jewelry, etc.
    But now things like wipes, snacks & deodorant make me happy hahahahaha so funny!

  • Alice December 11, 2015 at 6:02 pm

    Hey Rachel! I really enjoy watching your videos! If I could pick 5 products, they’d be:
    1) Tarte lights cameras lashes mascara – I’m a big fan of mascara and this is definitely one of my favorite lines
    2) Naked Palette 3 – I’ve yet to try this palette out, but the rose gold colors look so beautiful!
    3) Daisy perfume – this is one of my favorite scents and is so versatile. It could work for an interview, a date, or for a night out!
    4) Stila CC cream – this is one of my favorite foundations and I love that it’s multipurpose.
    5) Stila liquid eyeliner – I’ve worn this into the shower and it stays on. It’s probably the best smudge-proof eyeliner out there!


  • Isabelle P December 11, 2015 at 6:05 pm

    Hi Rachel,

    I love your video, snap chat and Instagram pictures. I’ve been following you for almost 2 years now! As a new mom to a 1-year-old, I don’t have lots of time to pamper myself like before… My ultimate swag bag would have:
    1- Fresh products because find there so good and I feel like I’m on a cloud when I smell Sugar from Fresh!
    2- Your ultimate mascara suggestion… A great mascara helps to look awake even on little sleep!
    3- NUFace products because I don’t know them and would love to try a new skincare product
    4- Fancy candle from JoMalone or others… to make the house smell wonderful! I find it’s small little things like lighting a candle after a day of work or on a lazy Sunday that make a difference and helps me relax.:-)
    5- A few good quality lipstick and lipgloss for daytime and night time. Would be great to find the perfect go-to lipstick color and moisturizer for every day and one for dressier occasions.

    Would love to win your ultimate swag bag to share with my girlfriends that are mom’s as well!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  • Vanessa December 11, 2015 at 6:11 pm

    I love this giveaway! Seriously everything you picked I would love to try! I have been struggling with severe acne for 5 years (I’m 28). My skin is better than it has been in a while, but I would really love to be able to splurge on some great skincare! I have s lot of hyper pigmentation and textured scaring, so here’s what I would put in my ultimate swag bag:

    1. Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics vitamin cleansing oil & makeup remover. (I have oily skin, but I have read so many great reviews on this product. I think it would be beneficial to use a cleansing oil!)

    2. First Aid Beauty cleanser

    3. Kate Sommerville ExfoliKate (I’m currently on Retin-A and shedding like a snake! I received a small sample of this product and LOVED it!)

    4. Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution

    Hi Rachel!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway,
    I love your videos….especially your routines.😀
    Here are the things I would put in my swagbag:
    -Firstly,some type of body oil. Like the JOSIE MARAN Argon oil but I prefer the Caudalie Divine oil. I just live the smell of it and it leaves my skin soft.
    Oils are very versatile ….They can be used for the face, body and hair
    -Next, some face masks. Because I like pampering.I like the masks from the brand My Beauty Diary.
    -Makeup: A palette that has a lot of eye shadow shades, the Naked Palette.
    I wouldn’t pack a lot of makeup because I want my skin to breathe
    -Lip sleeping mask by Laniege.
    It makes my lips so sift in the morning and I can’t live without it.
    -Lastly, the steam eye masks by KAO.
    They are the best and they helps me to sleep so well.

    A girls gotta look her best right 😉

  • Hiral December 11, 2015 at 6:33 pm

    Hey Rachel!!

    I don’t leave comments usually, but since I am commenting right now I have to let you know I am obsessed with your videos, your ideas and you!! I love the way you prioritize your health, your family’s health, and generally just having a balanced life, which is what is really important because in the end its everything good. 😉 I just love it, and have been trying for a long time now to follow that, and I have learned so much. Anyways! I would bring a favourite mask, lip balm, lotion, scarf, and tea (recent obsession!). All those items are feel good items for me, because they instantly make me feel ready, positive and happy.
    Take care!

  • Georgia December 11, 2015 at 6:34 pm

    I love giving gifts like this to the people in my life! (Can’t do that now as I have been unemployed for a while.) But if I could I would put together a swag bag with–
    1. Diptyque votive candle
    2. Julep nail polish
    3. Hair bow or headband
    4. Mask for face, hands, and feet
    5. Godiva Truffles

  • Kylee December 11, 2015 at 6:34 pm

    In my swag bag I would definitely have a face mask because those leave your skin feeling so smooth! Next I would have snacks just in case I got the munchies. Last, I would have some beauty products just in case I need to touch up or in case of an emergency like forgetting my favorite lipgloss or something. lol

  • Suzanne December 11, 2015 at 6:38 pm

    4. Chanel Le volume de Chanel mascara
    5. Weleda skin food

  • Grace December 11, 2015 at 6:39 pm

    I tried to be budget friendly and realistic with my list. I think these are doable for most price points and

    1. Korean face mask – I’m Korean so I’ve always loved face masks and I love that Korean beauty is getting so trendy. There are TONS of different masks for every price point from less than $1 and some that are $50. I’d probably stick to the ones that are a few bucks though 🙂 And it’s such a fun girls night in thing to do if you can’t afford a spa day.

    2. Snacks! I mean, who doesn’t like snacks? I loved that you added candy in yours and I think its a great idea.

    3. Something monogrammed or personalized – maybe a monogrammed makeup bag or one of those Anthropologie mugs. I love when things are personalized and you can definitely find things that already have letters on them for pretty cheap. You could even put different types of personalized items depending on your friends. A mug for the coffee drinker, makeup bag for the beauty junkie, a notebook for those who journal!

    4. Candles – Candles can be so luxurious, beautiful, and also very personal. If you know what kinds of scents your best friends love, I think this would be such an indulgent gift. Plus you can find great candles from Target to Bath and Body Works to Jo Malone!

    5. Bath products – A Lush bath bomb or an aromatherapy oil. I think this would go great for a girls trip theme and work well with candles and face masks!

  • Greta December 11, 2015 at 6:40 pm

    Rachel! I love this post, and you’ve inspired me to write a post on my own blog, listing my holy grail products. The items I would put in my swag bag would be:

  • Erica Landry December 11, 2015 at 7:07 pm

    Oh my goodness! Just seeing all what is in this bag gets me excited. I would love to be able to use these high end products since I rarely get to spoil myself!
    Ok so, being a mom of 2, (3 years old and under) I would have in my swag bag…

    1. An eye cream, but not for wrinkles, one more for puffiness and dark circles! (I don’t have a brand because I haven’t discovered anything like that yet.)

    2. Blush, I looove to have at least blush on.. Especially one that makes you glow! (I think right now I have Nars Orgasm blush that I’ve literally had for 4 years) probably should buy a new one.

    3. A good face cleanser because that is a must for me! I really like the Aveeno Calming cleanser.

    4. Teeth whitening system because I’m really wishing I had one right now, (please Santa?) Too much coffee for this momma does a lot of damage 🙁

    5. Lastly, I would have spa/massage passes because I have never had one! And that just sounds so amazing to be able to do.

    That’s all! I sound like such a needy momma over here but raising kids 24/7 really takes a toll on you and I’m not able to keep up with myself how I’d like sometimes! Rachel, you are wonderful for even giving something like this away! I would so LOVE (who wouldn’t?) to have all this stuff. Sometimes its nice to treat yourself to make us woman feel good about ourselves again for once!

  • Elena December 11, 2015 at 7:10 pm

    Hi Rachel! First off, I want to say thank you for having this super generous giveaway! My ultimate swag bag would have to include:
    1) the too faced cocoa contour palette (it smells like chocolate and is just a great and handy little palette to have!)
    2) maybelline colossal mascara or even the tarte one you always rave about as I would like to test that one out!
    3) Becca champagne pop highlighter because highlights are SO FUN!
    4) a good skin exfoliating scrub (I have just starting using the one from first aid beauty and really like it!)
    5) a nice lip balm (i like the nivea brand) because chapped lips are never fun!
    wow who would have thought this would be so tough! So many options for us girls! I would ideally like to incorporate more skin care items because you have introduced and open my eyes to how important skin care really is! I even share your tips and knowledge with my mom! (And have got her hooked on YouTube beauty videos, too funny!!) Thanks so much again and best of luck to us all!! 🙂

  • Damini December 11, 2015 at 7:12 pm

  • Angela G December 11, 2015 at 7:15 pm

    Here is what I would include in my ultimate swag bag:
    1) Benefit Total Mousture Facial Cream- this is one of my favorite moisturizers. I love how it feels on my skin! It is really hydrating without being too heavy, and it smells amazing!
    2) Elizabeth Arden’s Pretty perfume- this is my all time favorite fragrance. I have lost count of how many bottles of this I have gone through over the years. This fragrance is fresh and floral. In my opinion it does not smell too young or too mature, but perfectly in between.
    3) Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Fortifier- This product has changed my hair game! It leaves my hair feeling stong and leaves my ends looking thick and full as my hair grows out. The lightweight feel of this product is awesome as well!
    4) theBalm Nude Tude palette- this is one of my go to palettes for an everyday look. While this is a neutral pallet, there is still a lot of versatility with these shadows.
    5) Lush Honey Trap lip balm- HOLY GRAIL!!!!! No matter how many balms and lip treatments I try, I always find myself going back to this product. This lip balm feels so smooth on the lips, smells delicious, and best of all it works!!!

    Thanks for this giveaway opportunity Rachel! Looking toward to watching the other videos in your travel series that you are doing 🙂 Take care!

  • Sarah December 11, 2015 at 7:30 pm

    Okay, I sadly can not afford to give my lovely friends the swag bags they deserve. BUT these are the things I have tried or used and loved so this is what I would put in them! :
    1. Spa Of The World Japanese Camellia Cream – Got a free sample of this and it made my skin so soft and has such a calming scent.
    2. OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener – My mom got me this when I was a teenager and I loved it and was able to get another bottle recently. Makes your nails nice, healthy, and strong!
    3. Sephora Collection Face Masks – I would put a few of these in the bag since they are compact. I was able to get a few since I received a Sephora giftcard as a present. I loved how simple they were to use and how they made my skin feel!
    4. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley Book – A classic and it’s beautifully written. The above three will eventually run out but a book is something you can keep and pass down. Plus no way like to show girl power by supporting the woman who created a whole new genre! (science fiction)
    5. Home Baked Cookie – There is nothing better than giving someone you care about something you made with your own hands. Plus it’s just such a great way that they are worth your time and love.

  • Inna December 11, 2015 at 7:38 pm

    Wow, your swag bag is the bomb! A lot of those things would be on my top list of swag. Some other things I would love:

It’s called Total Repair 5 (Multi-Restorative Dry Oil) I love it because it makes hair go from firzzy to smooth, and smelling good hair! I have frizzy/puffy hair..and this product helps me a lot! I don’t feel uncomfortable with this product in my hair + makes my hair shinny.
    2) Another item i would put in my swag bag is Jewelry. Most likely jewelry from Baublebar. They have a bunch of jewelry that suits anyone’s style..!
    3) The next item I would include would be H2O+ Grapefruit Lotion…I’ve only tried it once, because of my friend. She got it from Disneyworld. Yet it smelled soo good + it made my hands feel very soft!
    4) The other item would be Makeup! Two items for sure I would need to include, would be the Maybelline Mascara called Rocket Mascara. It makes my eyelashes bigger than whet they usually are. Alos the other makeup product would be the Colorpop lippe stixs! They have an assorment of colors and include the normal lipstick and lip pencil. + it lasts ALL day long!

    5) The last item I would include in the sway bag world be a gift card

  • Angel December 11, 2015 at 8:53 pm

    Wow it would be really tough to narrow it down to just 5 products but if I had to I would choose these 5:
    1. Too face melted lip any color really. It stays on forever, looks more like lipstick and isn’t sticky like lipgloss.
    2. Becca shimmering powder in opal. It’s so pretty and makes my whole face just light up.
    3. Neutrogena moisturizer with retinal and spf in it. Simple but gets the job done and great for sensitive skin. My dermatologist recommended it and I love it.
    4. Benefits they’re real mascara. Love it! So pretty on and comes off so easily in the shower without having streaks on your face.
    5. Can’t live without a good bronzer. I love tartes bronzer because it’s more of a tan color than orange !

  • Jennifer December 11, 2015 at 9:04 pm

    Hey Rachel! Love your videos- keep up the great work! 🙂
    Anyway, in terms of the 5 products that I would put in my Ultimate Swag Bag:

    (1) Anything by Biore! Especially their deep pore charcoal cleanser, which is my current favourite cleanser at the moment; as well as their nose strips!
    (2) The luminizing black mask by Boscia! Absolutely love this stuff, and who doesn’t like a good pamper?!
    (3) Lush bath bombs- whether you’re just lounging around at home, or even going on a special vacation somewhere and can make use of a hotel jacuzzi/bath-tub. Great way to just relax and unwind.
    (4) Cute comfy PJs or slippers. Also since Christmas is rolling around, some festive cozy wear is a must!
    (5) Something not beauty related: CHOCOLATE. Can’t go wrong with it, and is always a good pick-me-up.

    Take care and all the best :’)
    – Jenn

  • Jessica December 11, 2015 at 9:37 pm

    Hi Rachel! What a generous giveaway!
    It’s so hard to pick 5 things because there are so many amazing products out there!
    1. Fresh Creme body lotion by Philosophy because it just smells AMAZING.
    2. Beauty blender! I just bought my first one (I had a knock off version before) and I have NO IDEA how I lived without it. Your makeup look perfect every time! I’m obsessed.
    3. An eye shadow palette. I’m going to go with either of the Chocolate Bar palette from Too Faced for a few reasons… One, the smell! The real cocoa they use makes it feel and smell like luxury every time you open it. Two: the shadows come in a really wonderful variety of neutrals and blend very well. There is also a combination of matte and satin finishes so is easy to come up with something to flatter almost everyone!
    4. A fragrance!! I’m currently obsessed with Nirvana Black by Elizabeth and James. It’s a great winter scent. I feel like wearing perfume is a really easy (and quick) way to feel really put together and really feminine.
    5. A Bath and Body Works candle!!!! I light a candle almost every single night because I find it super relaxing but it’s also a relatively affordable way to feel luxurious every day. Marshmallow fire side is my favourite scent. It’s masculine but sweet and gives the illusion of warmth in freezing cold Winnipeg MB (Canada). Candles are just a great way to unwind… To remind yourself to stop and enjoy the little things in this crazy busy life we’re all living!
    Happy holidays! Wishing you warmth and happiness this season! Xo

Especially since I can’t make it home for Christmas this year, those are some of the things that I find myself reaching for when I miss home. I think they’d warm anyone’s heart 🙂

  • Sarah December 11, 2015 at 10:21 pm

    Hey Rachel!

    Aaaah so many options! If I had an ultimate swag bag it would be able to hold as many items as the carpet bag in “Mary Poppins.” However, I must chose only five. So, here goes. First, I would include a bottle of face lotion/sunscreen from Crave. My mom ingrained in my mind the importance of sunblock, and it has become a habit to always have it with me.Second,I cannot live without Moroccan argan oil. Although it doesn’t cure split ends, it does a wonderful job of preventing future damage and providing much needed moisture. Third, not always, but lately I have including water bottle with sliced lemons and strawberries(YUM!) in my bag. In one of your videos awhile back you mentioned that if you were stuck on an island and could only have one beauty product, it would be mascara. I am the same way. I do enjoy all of Tarte’s mascaras, but on days when I want my mascara to be a little softer, I often use Maybelline’s “full n soft” mascara. Finally, I never leave out Giorgio Armani’s “Armani Code for Her.”

  • Linsay Foley December 11, 2015 at 10:25 pm

    Hi Rachel,
    Here’s what would be in my swag bag:
    1. Maybelline The Rocket Volum’ Express Waterproof mascara in blackest black for some amazing lashes.
    2. Anastasia Beverly Hills brow wiz for some amazing brows.

    • Linsay Foley December 11, 2015 at 10:28 pm

      Here’s the rest of my post. Ha ha!
      3. Kat Von D tattoo liner in trooper for an amazing cat eye.
      4. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment for soft lips.
      5. Kate Somerville Exfolikate for very soft skin.

  • Sara December 11, 2015 at 10:26 pm

    I love your videos, and especially your music, your blog posts and your snaps! You’re such a classy lady and an inspiration!

    My swag bag would have to consist of:

    1. Dior Addict perfume (the light pink one) because it feels good knowing you smell amazing! I’ve only tried the sample size of this perfume but I can’t wait to buy the big one!
    2. A really good face mask! Preferably exfoliating and hydrating!
    3. A lush bath bomb because it feels so wonderful and luxurious crawling into a steaming bath.
    4. Coconut oil… because it’s literally good for anything! Hair mask, moisturizer etc.
    5. NARS red chubby lip pencil, because it lasts forever and red lipstick always makes you feel classy and hot at the same time!

  • Reyna G December 11, 2015 at 11:00 pm

    Hi Rachel! When I watched your girls trip video I thought the mini gift bag was a sweet idea and then I saw the swag bag and was completely blown away! It’s definitely a great feeling to treat your friends to something special. 🙂 If I created an ultimate swag bag I would include:
    1. Aveeno Smart Essentials daily detoxifying scrub
    2. The LORAC PRO eyeshadow palette
    3. Clinique clarifying lotion
    4. Burt’s Bees Coconut & Pear lip balm
    5. Crest 3D White Strips
    I’m a college nursing student and I have 8 o’clock classes during the week and some days I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 in the morning. With little time in the morning, I realized it’s all about being quick and keeping it fairly natural! I’m sure that’s the case for so many other girls out there as well. Since I don’t wear a ton of make up most days, I always make sure to wash my face in the morning and at night. I really like this face wash by Aveeno. Since my face tends to get dry, I use Clinique’s clarifying lotion as a toner and it takes away all the dead skin. I haven’t tried many eyeshadow palettes, but this LORAC Pro palette has lasted me a while and it’s a little something extra to add to my morning routine. I love this coconut and pear lip balm because it smells so good and you get soft lips. 🙂 I carry it with me all the time. A girl’s perfect accessory is a smile. I find it especially important to smile at the hospital, so using Crest 3D strips can keep my teeth looking white.
    Thanks so much for the opportunity to enter this give away!


  • Celeste December 11, 2015 at 11:02 pm

    2. A beauty blender because I use one almost everyday and it is amazing.
    3. Delicious snacks like homemade peanut butter cookies because who doesn’t love that like!
    4. Coconut oil because it is the perfect body moisturizer and makeup remover.
    5. Elta MD face sunscreen SPF 46 because it is really good and everyone needs sunscreen!

  • Angelique Phillips December 12, 2015 at 3:36 am

    Hey Rachel!
    I absolutely love these swag bags! I admire your generosity because these luxury items are every enthusiast dream!! My perfect swag bag would probably consist of
    1) Tarte Maracuja Oil because I am in love with body oils and I love the brightening effect it gives as some extra icing
    2) Origin GinZing refreshing scrub cleanser in my opinion its perfect for mornings when you need a pick me up especially for a student like me that regularly spends late nights studying
    3) The Renewed Hope in a Jar by Philosophy is an amazing daytime moisturiser because it sinks it quickly and being that I live in the tropics heavy creams aren’t great for the daytime
    4) Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Cream that helps to provide the cooling effect whilst still being effective
    5) Laura Mercier Body Soufflé in any scent! in love with how wonderful all the scents are and the hydrating but not heavy quality of the soufflé as opposed to a butter
    Definitely my ultimate picks if I could choose.

    1. EOS Lip Balm – gotta keep the lips hydrated.
    2. BB Cream – lately it has been the Missha brand BB Cream, but I like how simple it is to get ready.
    3. Laneige Water Bank Mask – it’s a overnight mask, so you just put it on at night and wash it off in the morning. So easy and I love the feel of my face the next day, especially for a special night.
    4. Lotion – lately, it has been the Aruba Aloe Lotion that I had bought in Aruba. Love the smell and it is kind of like cheating, it’s a lotion and after sun protection all in one.
    5. A fragrance – CLEAN has been the choice lately, however, I think I need to change to my winter scent soon.

    Keep up the awesome work Rachel! I love yours and Byron’s channel. Definitely love seeing Oliver too!

    Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  • Katrein December 12, 2015 at 6:11 am

    This is a wonderful follow up post to your videos. I generally love reading your blog and combined with the videos, it’s just perfect (every time I blow dry my hair, I have your blog open to catch up *-*)
    My “swag bag” would include the OPI “hopelessly in love” nail polish because it goes with everything and throughout all seasons, the bodyscrub “scrubbing me softly” by Zoella and the body lotion “candy cream” with the same scent. I love pairing a scrub and a lotion or a shower gel and a lotion with the same scent. I would put in a maskara which I know my friends will like and a travel candle with a screw on lid as well. I would like to add an extra item to complete the pamper time with my girls and put in the lip balm with a vanilla and rose scent from Weleda.
    I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Now I have got to read through the comments to find new products *-*
    With love, Katrein

  • Hanne December 12, 2015 at 6:26 am

    Hi Rachel! Thank you so much for organising such a generous givaway! You’re such an inspiration to me because you’re such a good mom, home maker and business woman all in one! I hope to be the same one day!
    I love the things you put together, they are all things i’ve wanted to try forever but never did because they’re out of my budget because i’m a student. If i ever survive uni these are definitely the items that i want to splurge on!
    These are the things i would put in py Swag bag:
    1) The Kiehls midnight recovery concentrate. I’m really into skincare and have wanted to try this forever because verybody keeps on raving about it. At the moment i buy a lot of Korean skincare because it’s really affordable and they have a lot of good dupes for Western high end products like the Estee Lauder midnight recovery serum but i’ve never found a dupe for the Kiehls midnight recovery concentrate.
    2) The Urban Decay Naked I palette. Again this seems like something you can’t go wrong with. I’ve found a dupe for this one as well but the colours don’t really blend that well so the real deal sounds much better.
    3) Crest Strips because I live in Europe and we can’t buy them over here. I’d love to get a more healthy smile.
    4) A healthy and homely cook book with nutritious recipes that are still doable. I heard ‘Get the Glow’ is a really good one so i’d love that one to cook delcious and healthy meals.
    5) The Weleda Skin food or another really moisturizing cream like the Pond’s one you recommend ( i haven’t had the chance to try that one out because it isn’t available here). I use some exfoliating products with glycolic acid so i need some serious moisture to keep my skin healthy and keep the flaking away.

    Hugs from Belgium!

    5) Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel (in caramel for me): I feel more confident with great looking brows. Right after using the Anastasia brow wiz, I feel like the look is complete and neat after using this gel!

  • Whitney December 12, 2015 at 10:40 am

    Hi Rachel! I’m new to the whole “pampering” thing, so my list is probably pretty basic, as it just has my favorites right now!
    1. ExfoliKate- This has been my hands down favorite product, as my face responds well to it immediately. I received a sample a long time ago and have used it so sparingly (YIKES! full sizes are expensive!), mainly when I’m going through hormonal breakouts!
    2. Beauty Blender- Goodness knows these small things are God-sends!
    3. A giftcard! I love receiving gift cards as it allows me to pick up things I wouldn’t normally be able to grab, and to experiment with some fun new goodies!
    4. A bunch of samples, similar to when you make a Sephora purchase and they send you bunches of goodies! I love absolutely love trying things that I would never have thought to try- a lot of my purchases have been made after getting a sample!
    5. A book- I am ALWAYS looking for a new read. My latest is “The Last Lecture,” and while I’m not quite done with it, I highly recommend it to all my fellow mommies!

    Thank you so much for your generosity, and thoughtfulness to your subscribers/fans.

    Love all your platforms! xoxox
    Whitney! <3

  • Marisela Bennett December 12, 2015 at 10:53 am

    My ultimate swag bag would have 1) Murad skin perfecting lotion~ because is perfect for oily skin and that’s my type of skin. 2) Estee Lauder double wear foundation~ because it has full coverage and I need it for my rosacea on my cheeks. 3) Clinique Facial soap ~ it works great on removing makeup, dirt and oil! 4) Tartes Lights, camera and lashes~ is one of the best mascaras ever and best of all it does not irritate my eyes! 5)Dior Rouge in Angelique Beige~ is a beautiful nude lipstick so luxurious and it feels amazing on the lips.

  • Taylor Jennings December 12, 2015 at 10:54 am

    Hi Rachel! My ultimate swag bag would have to include things that would make me or anyone else feel fresh and revitalized yet confident:
    1. Moisturizer – I really like one by Kate Sommerville, but pretty much any nice moisturizer that doesn’t make me feel the need to reapply would be my pick!
    2. Lip Scrub – I have a bad habit of biting on my lips when I get stressed out, so they get pretty chapped and flaky sometimes. Lip scrubs (sugar, lemon, etc.) really help me out through the stresses of finals or just everyday life.
    3. Leave-in Conditioner – I have really long hair that I can’t afford to get trimmed often, so I’ve accumulated some split ends, not to mention that my hair is just naturally pretty dry and on the frizzy side. I’ve recently found an Ion leave-in conditioner that does pretty nicely but I need to find one that really does all that I need it to.
    4. Laser Hair Removal – Yet another problem I have been cursed with is fast growing, course leg and body hair that is hard for me to get rid of. Disposable razors just don’t work for me, and even with my 4 blade razor the hair grows back pretty much after I wake up the next morning (or so it feels like!). If I could just get all of it removed all at once and never have to worry about it, I would be the happiest girl around.
    5. Teeth Whitening Stripes – Something I’ve always been self conscience about are my teeth, and no matter what I do to them at home I can never get them to look how I want without whitening stripes, which, to a college student like me, are pretty expensive and not on the top list of priorities.

    I would LOVE this, because only recently have I figured out what a luxury it is to have these items and what it means to be confident when you’re struggling. I know it’s temporary and once I get accepted into Vet school things will look up for my future, but skin care is something I really love now and can’t afford. Thank you so much for this opportunity and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
    Love, Taylor

  • Margarita December 12, 2015 at 11:01 am

    5) The Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Perfumes

  • Anna December 12, 2015 at 11:10 am

    Definately masks, me and my friends enjoy them so much. A hand cream is always useful and one or two lip balms. I like to pick mini perfumes espacially when I know the scents they prefere. And always pick something small and funny (like a toy, a brush, frame, toilet paper with drawings etc) that when they see it, they will laugh or remind them a funny momment of ours. Cosmetics are always welcome… Have a nice holiday season Rachel. Kisses and hugs from Greece.

  • Haybat December 12, 2015 at 11:11 am

    I would have to say:
    1.Mascara, I love the Maybelline falsies. you can look put together without much effort
    2.tinted lip bom, it moisturizes and give a little color without having to do much. I really like the Nivea kiss of care & color sheer.
    3.moisturizer, currently I am using the Pods brand. Its heavy for the cooler weather.
    4.eyeliner, again it adds something extra to an everyday look without spending a lot of time or products. I love the Rimmel London Scandaleyes khol eyeliner.
    5.Body mist form Bath & Body Works. I love their Japanese Cherry Blossom. Its light and smells fresh and simple without complicating things.
    Thanks, for the thoughtful gift 🙂

  • Karen Gonzalez December 12, 2015 at 11:22 am

    For my ultimate swag bag I would include products that have never failed me so someone else can experience the glory too, lol. These products would include the following:

    1. L’Oreal Original Voluminous Mascara – it lengthens & volumizes beautifully and no matter how far off I’ve ventured with other mascaras, I always end up going back to my first true love <3

    2. Crest White Strips – I can always count on these to guarantee a beautiful, white smile (even after 10,000 coffees in the past year, hehe).

    3. MAC Painterly Paint Pot – This creates a beautiful canvas on my lids to start off with and helps to keep my eyeshadows in place all day – which is big for us oily lid gals!

    4. Milani Blush in Luminoso – Because everyone needs to experience the beauty that this incredible blush holds.

    5. And finally, I would include some Simple Makeup Remover Wipes – because when you're traveling sometimes you don't have the luxury of a handy sink nearby. That's when these little babies come in to save the day!

  • Dalila December 12, 2015 at 11:26 am

  • Katie A. December 12, 2015 at 12:11 pm

    My swag bag would include some nice skin and hair care products (since I don’t really get a chance to try those). Maybe some bath products from Lush or a nice perfume. I am a first year teacher, so I am not exactly rolling in dough, lol. I have always been curious about Kate Somerville and Tarte (maybe someday!).

  • Natalia December 12, 2015 at 12:18 pm

    My epic swag bag would include:
    1) Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask- I heard that this is great for clearing the skin and pulling out impurities, similar to the Glam Glow white mud mask.
    2) Kate Somerville Exfolikate- I really wanted to try this exfoliating treatment. You only need a pea size amount to see an effect on the entire face.
    3) Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask- This lip mask contains lanolin, which is perfect for moisturizing dry and cracked lips during the harsh winter months.
    4) Perricone MD Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment- This is an effective dual cleansing treatment for the skin.
    5) Elizabeth and James, Nirvana White- Great perfume, feminine scent and dark sophistication. Love it!

    Thank you so much!

  • lee December 12, 2015 at 12:49 pm

    Hi Rachel! I have so enjoyed your videos for so long and gotten so many skin care tips from you along the way:)

    I would say my epic swag bag would include:

    1. a Clarisonic Mia 2 because it has cleaned my skin like nothing other
    2. the Murad Acne Clarifying gel Cleanser because with the Clarisonic it has also cleared up my skin and prevented those pesky monthly hormonal breakouts that I tend to create into something way bigger!
    3. The PMD pro has been awesome at smoothing my face of fine lines and a great luxury product.
    4. I started using the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in Berry and I am addicted! Once I tried this smooth lip stain, I no longer can go back to my other lip products, it is that good!
    5. And finally, my all time favorite, are the Neutrogena Make up remover cleansing towelettes – Love love love, to take off make up, keep in bag after a gym class and on lazy nights just to be my face wash:)

  • paige stevenson December 12, 2015 at 12:52 pm

    Thank you for the bag giveaway Rachel! 🙂

  • Karen December 12, 2015 at 12:55 pm

    Hey Rachel! I was fortunate enough to come across your YouTube channel a little over a year ago and you have definitely changed the skincare game for me! I absolutely love your work and it’s so motivating to see a busy wife and mommy like yourself who inspires women of all ages to look and feel their very best. Thank you for that! With that said, the 5 items I would include in my ultimate swag bag would be:

    1) The Clarisonic Mia: The Clarisonic Mia has been the most life changing skincare device I have ever used, and I definitely believe that it would do the same for all women. It cleanses the face so seamlessly and it doesn’t take long to notice the positive effects in your skin. The best part is the longer you use it,
    2) Turquatic Perfume by MAC: This is the absolute perfect perfume for a night out with your friends. It’s one of those perfumes that makes heads turn after a girl who’s wearing it walks by and the scent lingers. The scent doesn’t wear off so you’d be good to dance the night away, and feel and smell sexy while doing so 😉
    3) Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask: The best charcoal mask in the market in my opinion! As soon as you put it on your face you feel it tingle. It tightens after about 20 minutes and you just feel all of the impurities being sucked out of your skin (the most amazing feeling ever!), once it’s washed off, your skin looks and feels so incredibly fresh and bright. This is the perfect night mask for us girls after having makeup on your skin all day.
    4) First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream: This is the perfect moisturizer for all skin types AND for all seasons. It is not heavy, yet still rids even the driest skin of it’s dry patches. I also notice that when I apply this moisturizer before applying my foundation and powder, it helps give my skin a dewy finish which we especially love in the winter time (:
    5) HUM Runway Ready Vitamins: To say the very least, these vitamins are life changing! 😀 They make your hair look shiny, they make your skin glow from the inside out, and they help your nails grow stronger! These are definitely swag bag necessary ;D

    • Karen December 12, 2015 at 1:32 pm

      The Clarisonic Mia: ***The best part is the longer you’ve been using it, you notice less and less problems with your skin (problems like blackheads, whiteheads, breakouts, and uneven skin tone). It is the perfect investment for your skin and it makes the perfect gift for absolutely any girl!

  • Francesca D December 12, 2015 at 1:02 pm

    HI Rachel, love your youtube channel and all the creative content you put on your blog!!!
    My swag bag would have a wide variety of fun things, here are a few:
    1. Bath & Body goodies- candle, lotions and bath time luxuries
    2. Makeup- a great lip product perhaps Urban decay’s revolution lipstick(liar is an everyday classic)
    3. yummy snack- maybe macaroons or yummy popcorn
    4. Nail care- essie nail polish & nail accessories
    5. The person’s favorite book or movie
    🙂 have a great day & continue being fabulous XOXO

  • Karla December 12, 2015 at 1:08 pm

    Hi Rachel!

    My ultimate swag bag would included:

    1. 3D Crest White Strip because who would not want whiter teeth for the holidays
    2. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate because it would help to keep the skin hydrated during the winter months
    3. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream for a relaxing spa day at home
    4. Tartelette by tart because it is such a good palette for everyday makeup with a great neutral color selection
    5. NuFace to help with the process of aging and because it is a luxury device that anyone would love

    Happy Holidays!

  • Dana Mitskan December 12, 2015 at 1:24 pm

    Hey Rachel! My 5 products would be…
    1) Michael Todd Ultra Bright anti-aging spot corrector and tone corrector ( I love this stuff! I’m using it for acne scars and I have been using it for almost a week. I see a difference and everyone has acne scars at one point or another in their life and this becomes useful)
    2) Burt’s Bees Pomegrant and Peppermint Lip balms (my favourite, go-to lip balms because they are so moisturizing, give a little shine on lips and the Pomegrant one gives a slight pinkish redish color to lips too and they smell yummy)
    3) Victoria Secret Mad About You fragrance mist and body lotion ( love how it smells- a little vanilla, floral, sweet and girly. Just have smell on own because a little hard romdescribe(; )
    4) Super Facialist By Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Intense Moisture Mask ( it’s made in England, so have to order online because I live in Pacific Northwest. But anyway, makes my skin so soft and radiant. Such a fresh clean feeling after using. I recommend tryin this mask! It’s on on sale right now half price – about $8 so not mad, affordable (; )
    5) Cover girl Lashblast Volume mascara ( I like the wand- it is a bigger wand, but I have naturally straight lashes (which is frustrating and a bit annoying haha), and this mascara works well)

    Anyway, love your vids. Have been watching before your cute son Oliver was born. Thanks for the opportunity! Bye(:

  • Summer Michaels December 12, 2015 at 1:28 pm

    Hey Rachel!

    My ultimate swag bag would include…

    1. Super cozy socks for the coming months.
    2. A Clarisonic to test if it really does make a difference for my skin.
    3. Teeth whitening strips, or any teeth whitening device since I just got my braces off a few weeks ago!
    4. A cute glass water bottle.
    5. Moisturizer! It is getting very cold and dry here in Colorado.

    Love your videos and blog posts Rachel! Thanks for all you do!

    Happy Holidays to you and your family! xx

  • Ghiurau Natalia December 12, 2015 at 1:30 pm

    Wow that’s an awesome prize, I’m dying to test out those products since I can’t find them where I live 🙁
    My top 5 products would be coconut oil for removing my make-up and for oil pulling and olive oil for moisturizing my face, Baby Lips, a dry brush and some facial masks 🙂 x

  • bernice December 12, 2015 at 1:52 pm

    my swag bag would contain:
    *sheet masks (because who doesn’t enjoy a good pamper session with a fun sheet mask)
    *eye patch masks (for extra pamper)
    *lip balm (a must!)
    *argan oil (also a must because it is so multipurpose)
    *and can’t forget s good chocolate bar!!


  • Lily Zhong December 12, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    Hi Rachel!! I love watching your videos and have been a long time fan (both main channel and music channel). As a recent college grad, I don’t really have the budget to afford high-end products, but if I could put 5 things in my ultimate swagbag, I could chose the following.

    1) Crest 3D whitening strips- a smile is a person’s greatest asset
    2) NAKED palette- for those days you want a simple look or if you want to glam up a bit more for a night out
    3) Cute tumbler for water- water = healthy skin
    4) Good book- knowledge is something no one can take from you
    5) Fresh Lip Balm- because no one likes chappy lips

  • Lisa D December 12, 2015 at 1:58 pm

    Hi Rachel! You wrote another great blog post. Here are the 5 products I would put in my ultimate swag bag:
    1. The Urban Decay Naked Palette. This is a cliche response, but it is hands down my favorite eye shadow palette. My favorite part of my makeup routine is doing my eyes, and the shadows in this palette are so versatile and have long staying power.
    2. Soap & Glory Hand Food. I’m from New England, so my hands get cracked and dried out when the cold weather comes. This hand cream is the best one I have ever used. It smells like flowers and it’s formula isn’t oily- it’s a miracle product!
    3. Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub. Not only do my hands get cracked and dry in the winter, my lips do too. While you can use regular sugar to exfoliate your lips, what makes this Lush product a must is it tastes just like kettle corn- my favorite snack!
    4. Lush Cupcake Fresh Face Mask. If my previous items don’t already illustrate this, I love products that smell so good you want to eat them, and there is no other product that works like a charm and smells delicious quite like this Lush product. It’s also perfect for combatting my oily, acne-prone skin.
    5. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation. You would think a foundation with the word ‘clay’ in its’ title would make your makeup look cakey, but this bad boy is the exact opposite! It has a light-medium coverage that you can build up to a fuller coverage on your bad skin days. Additionally, it leaves my skin looking radiant and flawless. Best of all, it’s an amazing foundation for those days you don’t want to look like you’re wearing makeup.

    I hope you have a great holiday, Rachel. -Xo Lisa

    2. Stila Palette in ‘Soul’ – Some of the best quality shadows I have ever used! Also, the colours are so perfect for everyday and therefore anyone would get great use of it!
    3. Zoeva Brush Set – TOO good! The rose gold set of course because HOW can you resist??? So so soft and my fave most used brushes
    4. Charlotte Tilbury Bronze Star Film and Glow – luxurious and gorgeous. Can’t go wrong.

    Thank you so much for such an amazing giveaway! It’s so hard to come up with just five products for an Ultimate Swag Bag but I think mine would be:

    1. Boscia B.B. Cream- no matter how many BB or CC creams I try, this is the one I always come back to. It keeps my skin looking matte while still radiant. I don’t know how they do it!

    2. Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask- holy grail mask for all the skin concerns that come with having a more oily complexion 😉

    3. Smith’s Rosebud Salve- my lips could not live without this, especially in the winter! Smells amazing too.

    4. Tarte Smoldereyes Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner- easy to apply, looks great, stays on all day. This is the definition of a good eyeliner!

    5. Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Mousse- I never have a bad hair day when I use this. It gives my fine hair so much volume and just livens up my whole look.

    Thanks again, Rachel! I so appreciate your generosity and all your amazing content, of course.

    2. CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser because one I LOVE GEL CLEANSERS and two it is very hydrating and balancing to the skin. This cleanser is great for all skin types and does not strip the skin.

    3. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye- this is THE only eye cream that has ever had even the slightest effect on my under eye area. Dark circle run in my family, so I have always had a super hard time finding an eye cream that actually diminishes their appearance until I found this bad boy. I will never use another eye cream ever! Everyone that I have recommended this to has fallen as much in love as I am 🙂
    4. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate- another little miracle worker. I have pretty sensitive and super dry skin. This is amazing to sooth irritation and dryness. Not so oily or too ineffective. This product will always be a staple in my skincare routine.
    5- Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso- I haven’t mentioned any make up but, this blush has been a favorite of mine for years. I own both drugstore and high end blushes but I ALWAYS go back to this one. This goes with pretty much every look and every season. I’ve seen it on so many different skin tones and it looks awesome on all of them.

    Winning this would be amazing. I can see so many things that other people will love as well. Hope to be able to share this with them. Thanks so much for this giveaway. God bless

    Your vacation with JW Marriot looked like soo much fun! I am seriously considering picking a destination with them for my sister and I to go to! My perfect swag bag would probably include mostly skin care items because I cannot get enough! First, I’d have to bring my (1)Michael Todd Spin Brush to keep my pores in check. (2)Suncreen to protect my skin while I take in some sun. And definitely a moisturizer that I can use on my face and body like (3)Coconut Oil. (4)Aztec Indian Healing Clay Mask for pampering. And last but not least dark CHOCOLATE. Nothing like a good piece of quality dark chocolate to cap off any evening or meal. Sweet yet healthy. Can’t go wrong!

    • Viola December 22, 2015 at 7:17 pm

      I love chocolate! Not wearing sunscreen is my biggest skincare faux-pas. However, I totally understand why it’s crucial to your swag bag! I would add a swimsuit and sunglasses and that swag bag will be poolside meets spa, don’t cha think? 🙂

If you read this far, thank you for this opportunity. Fingers crossed!!

    Hey Rachel!
    I absolutely love this giveaway! You have included so many items that I would LOVE to try!! If I were to create an epic swag bag, I would want to include some products that I love, but my friends may not have tried:
    1. MAC Fix + or Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin mist – The Fix + for my normal or oily skin friends and the Tatcha for the dry gals. These sprays are so refreshing and hydrating. They are great skincare features, but also great to use after makeup!
    2. A Z palette full of my favorite single shadows consisting of MAC, Anastasia, and Makeup Geek shadows -This way I could pick an array of different finishes of good quality eyeshadows for them to try!
    3. Sheet masks – I LOVE sheet masks and they are such an easy way to relax without too much effort.
    4. Bath bombs – What girl doesn’t love a nice relaxing bubble bath and these are just the trick!
    5. My favorite hair styling tools from Paul Mitchell – These are great quality tools that last a long time!

    Again, thank you for the opportunity to win some amazing goodies! I have followed you for a few years and you are always so kind and generous!

  • Sarah Dixon December 18, 2015 at 11:28 pm

    The video that led me to this post was so fun to watch, Rachel! My ultimate swag bag would contain:
    – The LORAC Pro Matte Palette (small and versatile for traveling, great color payoff, and with great shades for any eye look!)
    – Nars Audacious Lipstick (any color, they’re all awesome!)
    – Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil (it feels so great to take any heavy makeup on after a long day, it’s like a mini spa experience!)
    – Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment (it’s probably the best one I’ve even tried, completely worth the price)
    – A cute sleeping mask (to have an amazing night of sleep after a day full of fun).

  • Leslie December 19, 2015 at 6:50 am

    I don’t have specific products that would be in my top five (still fairly new to all makeup and beauty have to offer!) but here are some categories:

    1. A fantastic face/body oil b/c I get such dry skin, currently liking Tarte Maracuja Oil.
    2. A mascara that will hold curl and not be too wet (it transfers onto my eyelids, ugh!)
    3. Lipstick! I want that perfect every-day pink, that doesn’t dry out my lips or disappear.
    4. Hairspray that will hold my limp hair in place but feel touch-ably soft. Loreal was okay but still looking.
    5. A foundation that stays put all day without accentuating dry spots-Tarte full coverage foundation has been okay if my skin is completely moisturized, but doesn’t look so great if I have dry skin.

  • Liahnan Higgs December 19, 2015 at 7:29 am

    Hi Rachel!

    My epic “swag bag” would have

    1. GlamGlow supermud face mask (I bought it after one of your routine videos and loved the glow it gave me and soft skin)

    2. Crest 3-d white strips (whiter teeth & a brighter smile makes anyone feel better about their looks)

    3. First aid beauty milk cleanser (even though I haven’t tried it yet, I have always wanted to. I like any gentle cleanser to change up the routine a bit. Using harsh, rough scrubs can damage my skin after a while.)

    4. Maracuja oil (tons of benefits…I love to give myself pedicures and make DIY scrubs)

    5. Any type of eye shadow palette with nude colors. (Those colors compliment anyone and I love natural looks).

  • Norma Fernandez December 19, 2015 at 8:07 am

    My ulimate swag bag would consist of:
    1. Maracuja Oil
    2. LORAC Pro Matte Palette

  • Nicole Bergman December 19, 2015 at 10:06 am

    5) mascara, mt favorite one is from maybelline

  • Elana Wood December 19, 2015 at 11:26 am

    Hi Rachel!
    In my ultimate Swag Bag….
    ….. ok this is hard for me! I love so many products lol!
    1. Naked Basics Palette; I love this palette so so so much! It’s fantastic for everyday wear because it’s portable, neutral, and in my opinion something that EVERYBODY should invest in!
    2. Bare Minerals, The Natural High blush; I love this blush because it’s super natural glowy and simple, it adds a natural flush to my cheeks! I’m a super big fan of more natural brands because I don’t really like putting crazy harsh chemicals on my sensitive skin!
    3. Lush Ocean Salt srub, I love this facial exfoliator because it’s not overly harsh and it smells AMAZING! My face feels like it has been completely unclogged after using this! It is a little pricey but totally worth it!
    4. Wetbrush, I love the wet brush because it’s fantastic for my tangle prone fine hair! Definitely a must have product!
    5. Bare lip balm, Grapefruit flavour, I love this product because of how natural it is, I think that since the lip balm will probably end up in my mouth at some point, it should be natural! This product is VEGAN and cruelty free!
    hope you liked my Swag Bag essentials!

    1. Aubrey Organics’ Revitalizing Therapy toner
    2. Aubrey Organics’ Revitalizing Therapy cleanser
    3. Aubrey Organics’ Revitalizing Therapy moisturizer
    –> This line is doing wonders on my dry skin, plus it’s natural and cruelty free.

    –> It’s light weight, inexpensive and makes a great primer.
    5. Anastasia Brow Wiz
    –> I wish I was blessed with thick and dark eyebrows like yours :p

    Btw, I’ve been following you for years, way before you had Oliver and I love how mature and classy your videos have become. You’re the only YouTuber I actually comment on their videos. 😉

    Love you! <3

    – Claire

    p.s. I'd love to win your give away, I am a college student trying to invest in better skincare but it's hard to afford… It would make me soooo happy! I will share it on social media to promote your channel.

  • Melanie December 27, 2015 at 3:38 pm

    3. a dermaroller to try and eradicate acne scars, I saw one in your video and have been curious to try one out
    4. Kate Somerville Exfolikate because I wish I could get one of her facials every time I’m on Melrose Place getting coffee (at Alfred! it’s the best!) but they’re so expensive for a high schooler, so her products should be a reasonable substitute
    5. Sigma’s #NoFilter brush set, because I’ve been eyeing the 3 brushes in the set and I’ve heard rave reviews all over YouTube! I’d love to try them 🙂

  • Vahin December 27, 2015 at 10:08 pm

  • Abigail December 28, 2015 at 7:23 pm

    I absolute love all the products you’ve picked out for the swag bag btw. My ultimate swag bag would include:

    1. A great facial moisturizer such as the Origins Night-a-Mins. A great night moisturizer that is extremely moisturizing and great for all skin types.

    2. A body moisturizer. With the cold weather I have quite dry skin and I’ve been loving the “Ann Webb Face and Body Lotion”. I absolutely adore this lotion, I found it at Whole Foods, and formulated by an esthtician. I have extremely dry hand and this works like a miracle.

    3. Burts & Bees lip balm. I love the intense conditioning, does wonders.

    4. Facial Mask. With all holidays coming at once, bi-polar weather, a great facial mask is necessary. Currently loving the Origins Charcolar Clear Improvement and the 100% Pure Vegetable Mask (defenitely recommend this brand)

    5. A great neutral Makeup palette. The too faced chocolate bar palette or the one you picked out is absolutely perfect, the Tartelette.

  • Kendra (Heartofjoy25) December 28, 2015 at 10:40 pm

    Did I win?!?! 😀 lol… was the winner ever announced or is this still open?

  • Ashley Ortiz December 30, 2015 at 4:56 pm

    In my ultimate swag bag I would include: Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream because eye cream is an essential in my beauty regime, Urban Decay Naked Skin weightless concealer because it is my absolute favourite concealer (full coverage and light weight!), Lush Buche de Noel Facial cleanser because it smells heavenly but also leaves my face radiant, smooth, and clean. I would also include OPI nail lacquer in “Aphrodite’s Pink Nightie” because it is the perfect pale pinky mauve colour for everyday use-no matter which season, and last but not least I would include Maybelline color sensational lipstick in “Warm Me Up” because it is the perfect everyday lip colour that is essentially a “my lips but better” wear.

    Thanks Rachel! x

  • Wendy December 31, 2015 at 6:49 am

    My ulimate swag bag would consist of:
    1. Nuface, I been wanting this device ever since your holy grille video. Would love to try it

    5. Tarte liner, I loved the gel liner in the old packaging, wondering if these are the same

    Thanks for the posting and wonderful videos 🙂

  • Katrina Westfall January 1, 2016 at 3:28 pm

    My ultimate swag bag would consist of:
    1) The Josie Maran Cleansing Treatment, I just got this for Christmas and it makes my skin sooooo soft and glowy.
    2) LUSH bath bomb, perfect to unwind all of my senses.
    3) Freeman Avacado Oatmeal face mask, this is my all time favorite drugstore mask. It draws out impurities but soothes and hydrates at the same time.
    4) Philosophy Body Wash in Raspberry Sorbet. This is the ultimate multi tasker. Body wash, bubble bath and shampoo? I’ll take it. Plus, it smells delicious.
    5) Sakara Life a Beauty Water, a delicious way to hydrate and replenish.

    Happy New Year to you and your family Rachel!

  • Vita January 2, 2016 at 12:09 am

    My ultimate swag bag would look quite similar Rachel! I would put some staple skincare products in there for sure.

    1. La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo [+], this is my favourite moisturizer of all time. It works with my oily, spotty skin, it immediately clears it up (overnight!). I would recommend this to everyone with unclear skin.
    2. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil. I love this oil, overnight this has really cleared up my skin (can you tell I love products that clear up my skin? 😉 ). Love it!
    3. Too Faced Born This Way foundation. I’ve heard so many amazing things about this foundation, but I haven’t tried it myself just yet. In my opinion, investing in good skin care and a good foundation is the most important thing.
    4. Anastasia Brow Wiz, because second to good skin, beautiful eyebrows can really make your face. Besides that, your eyebrows look amazing when you use this product!
    5. The Body Shop Body Butter in Almond. I’ve been loving the TBS Body Butters for years, and the almond scented one is definetly my favourite. It moisturizes really well and the scent is perfect for this time of year.
    6. Nivea Man Aftershave Balm. Maybe you’ve heard of this! Nikkie Tutorials was the one who introduced me to this product. Even though it is meant for men, you can use it as a primer underneath your foundation. Because it contains glycerin, your foundation will stick to it and it won’t be move all day long. I love it!

    So, these would be the products I’d put in my swag bag. I would love to get my hands on your epic swag bag!
    Lots of love xxx

  • Jaina January 2, 2016 at 11:21 am

    How cute and fun! My ultimate swag bag would consist of:
    1. Palmers Cocoa Butter Lotion – I have really dry legs, and after a shave, this is the only lotion that makes me feel moisturized and it keeps me flake free!
    2. Rose Water – I love spraying this all over my face before I put lotion on. It gives me a dewy look, helps the lotion sink in better, and the smell is just wonderful!
    3. Lip balm – Burts Bees with the peppermint oil is what I slather on every night before bed. The scent is relaxing, and my lips are always soft in the morning.
    4. Mascara – I rarely leave the house with out it. I feel “naked” if I don’t have mascara on. I rotate and love to try new ones all the time. My two favorites at the moment are Better Than Sex, and L’Oreal’s Voluminous Carbon Black
    5. Korean Sheet Masks – there are so many brands and types that I try new ones all the time. They are so convenient when traveling too, and always make my skin feel and look its best.

    Thanks Rachel! Happy New Year to you and your family! xo

  • Joanne Moua January 2, 2016 at 11:40 pm

    The 5 things I would have in my swag bag would actually be pretty close to what I would bring along when I go on a holiday or a weekend getaway. I think the 5 swag items I would have though be :

    1. Chapstick : any type of good mostiurizing chap stick is definitely a swag item for me . Something that I use daily ! Chapstick is definitely the number one item.

    2. Eyebrows: any eyebrow pencil or eyebrow powder . Is definitely something I feel like is a swag item. I don’t have to have a full face of makeup on. My eyebrows foundation and a little bit of mascara and I’m good to go for my day.. Which leads me to number 3 & 4.

    3. Mascara: having mascara is such an easy look. I love simple looks especially when I’m on vacation a simple look is so easy with just a little mascara. It makes you look refreshed and awake.

    4. Foundation: I have a lot of blemishes so foundation is great to hide all my blemishes but still keep my face looking fair, even-toned and super lively.

    5. Makeup wipes/face wash: this is probably my most swag out item I will always have with me on a holiday or a getaway. You want to have fun, but you don’t want to spend a load of time taking off your makeup. So have a quick makeup wipe or a quick face wash to get the job done is great. My most favorite would be the St. Ives. I love getting the grainy texture. It makes my skin super smooth, takes off all of my makeup, but I feel as though all the dirt and nasty stuff is taken off along with it as well. Which really does its justice. It takes only a few minutes. And it doesn’t make me miss anything important from my party or guests.

  • Christopher Stevenson January 3, 2016 at 4:34 pm

    For my Gift Basket I would have to include:
    1)Vanicream Gentle Facial Cleanser (it’s just so gentle but cleans well with NO irritation and helps keep my persistent teenage acne at bay!)
    2)Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion (alcohol free unlike the other Clinique lotions, also helps keep my acne away and does not irritate my skin at all!)
    3)Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask (SO SO SO moisturising but does NOT clog my pores, miracle product if I have to be honest!)
    4)La Roche Posay Serozinc (very refreshing, quite hydrating but also helps fight redness.)
    5)Murad Blemish Control Skin Perfecting Lotion (my DREAM daytime moisturiser, non-comodogenic, helps keep my skin hydrated but not shiny.)
    Thanks for the giveaway and fingers crossed!)

    my swag bag would have a clarasonic mia 2 because it times each portion of your face and automatically shuts down after a minute. It would also have the benefit their real mascara also the urban decay setting spray. my favorite skincare products right now are Clinique products like their fi would also put my facial cleanser and toner are very good and have worked for clearing my skin for years. I would also put some face masks in there because I think that hydrating your skin is very important. these are the products I would put in my swag bag.

  • Latie January 10, 2016 at 5:07 pm

    Not sure if this is still open, but I would still like to share the top 5 products I would put in my swag bag to make someone smile and feel exquisite!

    1. Gift card to a local spa for facial, mani, pedi, and massage- an ultimate day of relaxation and comfort!
    2. A bottle of Sunday Riley Good Gene’s facial treatment serum for bright, plump, supple skin! It’s a real treat.
    3. Tarte In Bloom palette for gorgeous romantic eyes.
    4. Ascenta Skin Supplements- it makes you feel good from the inside out, imparting you with glowing skin and giving you a clearer mind! Worth the splurge.
    5. Pacifica Tibetan Mountain Perfume and Candle set (it smells heavenly of sweet orange and cinnamon).

    Best of luck to everyone. You’re so sweet and generous to your fan base, Rachel 🙂 A beautiful women inside and out! <3

    It’s hard to narrow it down to 5 items for my swag bag but I’ll do what I find cruical for my everyday skin care.
    1) Mia Cleanser Brush- I have super oily skin that tends to get clogged and easily breaks out. I’m be more and more careful of my skin care as I’ve started my late 20’s.
    2) Josie Maron Argan Oil – Moisturizing my face, body & hair with this all in one oil. Love that I can use this without irritating my skin.
    3) Tarte’s foundation- I love this foundation that I can build up. So a little is perfect to give myself some coverage for work (and it stays on through my whole shift at the hospital!) or build up a little for events
    4) Sierra Bee’s Organic Mint Lip Balm– A necessity at work and otherwise against Chicago weather changes
    5) Kiss my Face SPF– I don’t care if the sun is only visible for 2 months out of the year, I’m taking no chances.
    That’s a short wrap up for a few bare necessities. Loving your swag bag!

  • kenia January 12, 2016 at 8:33 am

    Hi Rachel i want to start off by saying that you are by all time my most favorite youtube vlogger. I love the fact that you share home decor, baby friendly and beauty videos. I absolutely enjoy them all. Anyway getting back to my 5 item swag bag list.

    1. Aveeno- cream cleanser face wash
    2. Estee Lauder- Double Wear Stay in Place foundation
    3. Tarte- tartelette amazonian clay palette
    4. Benefit cosmetics- They’re real mascara
    5.IT Cosmetics- CC+ lip serum hydrating and anti aging color correcting creme gloss.

    crossing my fingers <3

  • Andrea January 12, 2016 at 8:55 am

    In my 5 item swag bag , I would definitely put one of my favorite products that I’ve been using since I got the chance to find out more about beauty products.
    1-Herbalism by Lush, because who doesn’t love organic products and the best thing, they smell as if you’re inside of a Canadian forrest.
    2-Lip Treatment by Eve Lom, because lips are part of our face and we don’t take care as much as we need to.
    3-The black pore mask, because I hate nose pores and this japans mask really helps you to get rid of them.
    4-Rituals Hamman Exfoliator, because it has an awesome smell and it also leaves your body soft.
    5- Eye Cream Treatment by Kielh’s, because it makes your eye bags disappeared and leaves you a very hydrated feeling as well as fresh.

  • Tooba January 12, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    Hi Rachel. I am a big fan of yours. Although I haven’t commented on your videos. I love tarte cosmetics. I want you to know that you are a beautiful person inside and out. My ultimate swag bag will have MAKEUP.
    1. Tartiest black eyeliner.
    2. Laura Mercier Lip Glacé
    3. Lush bath bomb in sex.
    4. Yves Saint Laurent Baby doll kiss & Blush.
    5. Lush soap in Angel’s Delight.
    I have never won anything so far. Who knows maybe this is my lucky chance.

  • Charlie January 12, 2016 at 9:15 pm

    wow! I love your swag bag! I love trying new products so that’d be cool in a swag bag. But I’d give my girlfriends 1. nail polish 2. face mask 3.moisturizer 4. makeup whether for lips or eyes 5. some sort of treat like candy or popcorn depending on the person 🙂

  • Diana-Elena Herisanu January 13, 2016 at 12:57 am

    Hello Rachel, my name is Diana and I have to say you really inspired me with taking more care of my skin. Last night i tried to make my very first facial after watching your videos, and i am pretty happy with the results:). After a few months of having a cleansing routine my face doesn’t have so many bumps and scars, i think i am on the right track, so : thank you,thank you, thank you!
    So, my ultimate swag bag would include:
    – a cleanser: i cannot live now without one, i don’t even want to remember the times i used a wipe >_<(when a was a student addicted to Youtube videos)
    – a serum: it makes a huge difference in my routine, since i started using one my face is brighter and plumper;
    – a body&face scrub: i like how my skin feels after using it, i have the skin of a baby.
    – a nice floral perfume: it relaxes me.
    – an eye palette : i don't like heavy eye make-up, but i do like all eye palettes and a simple wash of 1-2 colors on the eye lids 🙂

    Greetings from Romania! 🙂
    Good luck everyone!

  • Julia January 13, 2016 at 7:45 am

    That bag is amazing! I would put:
    1. A facial cleansing brush
    2. A really good moisturizer (Khiel’s ultra facial)
    3. Some face masks, to pamper yourself!
    4. An eyeshadow palette with all wearable colours
    5. Some nice blushes 🙂

  • Pry Mullen January 13, 2016 at 11:41 am

    Hi , the 5 items I would put in my swag bag are :
    1- EOS so my lips are super smooth
    2- hand cream so my heads are moisturise
    3- my favourite lipstick form MAC (dark side because you never know when to top up for that “kiss” or a selfie) 😂
    4-Ray ban sunglasses (to block out all the hatters and the sun LOL)
    5-7th haven coconut hair mask (hair needs to repair)

    That’s it and am a big fan of you and am currently struggling though my teenage years and all your advise is helping me thanks 😘

  • Olivia Kim January 13, 2016 at 1:52 pm

    Hi Rachel!
    Here are my top items for a swag bag.
    1. Electronic Toothbrush
    2. Makeup Eraser towel
    3. Korean face mask and eye patches
    4. Ipad loaded with 1 free year of Netflix and Youtube Red
    5. Bag of fancy gummies you get at the mall

  • Jeniffer Triana January 14, 2016 at 1:09 pm

    In my ultimate swag bag I think would be pretty similar to this one. I would love anytype of tarte product because i have always wanted to try their products but unfortunatley never had the chance to. Also, I would love to include Nail polish!! I love to change uo my nail polish and freshen up with new trends for the new seasons. I would also love to get some type of techy accessories to rock at school, a stylish pair of headphones area must. A teeth whitening treatment would be absolutely spectacular, I mean who wouldn’t love to have a sparkle in their smile. A lastly the last thing I would have in my ultimate swag bag would be a hair oil. My hair is super curly and as we all know curly hair tends to be extremly dry and where I live the humidity makes my hair so unbearable so yeah a hair oil would be a life saver. 🙂 🙂

  • Karla Martinez January 15, 2016 at 7:36 pm

    Hey Rachel 🙂

    My ultimate swag bag would consist of:

    1. CHAPSTICK/Lip balm (can’t survive without it, especially in the winter months here in Wisconsin!)
    2. SPF for sure. Not only for protecting my skin, but the smell reminds me of the beach/pools which is so calming to me, and I love how much it feels on my skin.
    3. A sea salt and/or mud mask. My skin always glows after a nice mask!
    4. Under eye concealer/eye treatment. I have really dark under circles that I can’t leave the house without some concealer/under eye treatment (to avoid the question “not enough sleep?” or “are you sick?”).
    5. Hand lotion for sure! I have been really enjoying the Burt’s Bees ultimate care hand lotion with Baobab Oil. I am not fond of sticky/greasy-feeling hand lotion, so this lotion does the trick.

    Side note, I absolutely love your channel! All of your videos are so relaxing and give me the motivation to get going with organizing or researching new products. My boyfriend and I watch your hubbie’s cooking videos and they are awesome! They always leave me hungry of course, but worth it (that lava cake though…<3 ). I am happy I came across his channel for cooking techniques/recipes because it led me to you!!

  • Kristyn January 15, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    My ultimate swag bag would consist of a
    1. claresonic. I think they’re awesome you can use the smart one on your body and face. I’ve always wanted one
    2. Mask. Sheet or any other kind. I think it’s a nice pampering thing to do once in a while
    3. Dry brush. I saw your video of it and I really want to try it.
    4. cleanser. People can never have too much cleanser. Gotta always clean your face
    5. Coconut oil. It’s so useful for everything. Everyone needs it.

  • Alla January 16, 2016 at 2:57 pm

    Well….It’s pretty fricken hard to narrow this down because this swag bag has AMAZING products! I am kinda the same, in that I would much rather focus on skin care, than makeup
    (haha, even though I still love makeup), so I would say my top items would be…
    1. the NuFace Facial Toning Device/ and or a dermaroller (I’m a firm believer in taking precautions early for great skin!)
    2. Biologique Recherche lotion P50 (I have heard nothing but good things about this product. It’s definitely at the top of my list!!!)
    3. Tatcha Camellia Nourishing Lip Balm (HUGE fan of pretty much all Asian skin care products, but this one in particular is amazing for dry lips)
    4. SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic Serum (the best serum to use in AM… EVER)
    5. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Bentonite Clay (probably one of the most inexpensive masks… that actually works!!!)

  • nicha January 20, 2016 at 9:21 am

    i would love to get the NuFace Facial Toning Device because as much as i love makeup i love anything to do with skin care but have never gotten the chance to try any device for the face before and would love to try it and hopefully get more into the device part of my skin care rouitne

  • Prathee Chander January 20, 2016 at 10:13 am

    1. Origins Ginzing Moisturizer
    2. Tarte light camera flashes
    3. Tatcha Camellia Nourishing Lip Balm
    4. NuFace Facial Toning Device
    5. Kiehl’s moisturizer

  • Julia H. January 20, 2016 at 3:39 pm

    Dear Rachel,
    your amazing blog and Youtube channel has also reached GERMANY- hurray! 🙂
    First of all, I´d like to say that I´m in love with your videos and your positive attitude and that you´re just really an inspiration to me (and obviously to so many more)!

    In my Ultimate Swag Bag I´d put
    1) some facial masks from different brands with unique flavors, so you can choose them depending on your mood of the day.
    2) a nice smelling candle, preferably from Yankee Candles, since I´m just so in love with them.
    3) a good skin care lotion, maybe one from Vichy or so.
    4) a sponge/exfoliator for your body and one for your face.
    5) some nice sparkling wine/champagne…. just because – ask Gossip Girl 😉

    Love and best wishes from Germany, Julia 🙂

  • Jessica K. January 22, 2016 at 10:23 pm

    Rachel 🙂

    I first wanted to say I absolutely love your channel and blog, and that I am so happy to have found you. I appreciate that your channel revolves around skin care, health, and a positive attitude. So thank you!
    My ultimate swag bag would involve goodies that even a college student like me needs to splurge on:
    1. Eucerin Dry Skin Therapy Original Moisturizing Creme – I have psoriasis and I cannot tell you have much this has changed my life. I live in the midwest where the winters are dry and COLD, and it definitely causes me extreme skin pain. This creme used twice daily had kept my skin from cracking. If I could only have one item, this would be it.
    2. Vanity Planet Spin for Perfect Skin – My mom bought this for me this past Christmas for a gift, and it has really made such a different in my clean skin. I would consistently feel that my skin wouldn’t feel deeply clean because my skin would start getting oily around mid-day. I do not have oily skin, so it just meant that no matter what cleanser I tried, it just wasn’t cleaning well enough. After the first night I used this motorized brush, my skin felt so smooth and clean, and when I woke up the next morning my skin was STILL smooth and clean feeling. It comes with 4 different heads, so I have one for my body, two for my face (one is an exfoliate and the other is just the normal cleansing head), and a head that gets rid of rough spots on the feet. Honestly, with all of the heads, and the fact it was a gift, I am just so in love with the Vanity Planet one.
    3. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster – This is definitely my splurge, buy on a sale in bulk, ask my mom for my birthday, kind of item. I have noticed a huge difference in my firmness and tonicity in my skin. My red spots have almost disappeared, my skin is so firm, and it smells like oranges, so what can go wrong?
    4. Peter Thomas Roth Firmx Peeling Gel – I have to order this item on Amazon Sales, but I LOVE it. I love exfoliating items, but they can sometimes irritate my sensitive skin. This item works in less than 5min, peels all the nasty old skin off, and leaves a soft gentle face.
    5. Essie Nail Polish – I have the worst habit of biting my nails. I get nervous consistently, and I find myself biting my nails. The ONLY way I have been able to avoid this is by wearing nail polish. I find that the Essie brand looks the best, wears the best, and lasts the longest on the shelf.
    I hope you enjoyed reading my swag bag 🙂 Thank you for the opportunity 🙂

  • Kira Natrop January 23, 2016 at 3:28 pm

    Hi Rachel! I absolutely love your channel and blog!
    The top 5 products I’d have in my swag bag would be….
    1) Fresh soy face cleanser
    2) Maracuja Oil
    3) Kate Von D contour pallete
    4) Tarte lights camera flashes
    5) some moscato, a movie and a nice smelling candle

    I’d put these in because it’s nice to pamper yourself and these are some of my favorite products!

    I’d love to win this swag bag from you! Keep up all of your hard work and I look forward to all of your upcoming blogs and videos!

  • Stephanie Dauzat January 23, 2016 at 6:23 pm

    In my Ultimate Swag Bag, I would put:
    1. Beauty blender (who doesn’t love those handy little things??)
    2. Kiehls body lotion (this stuff is a lifesaver for my skin, chemo dries me out BAD)
    3. Bobbi Brown mascara (the only product I WONT do without)
    4. Essie nail polish (nails on fleek!)
    5. Urban Decay Basics palette (the BEST and most trustworthy colors 🙂
    I would include these because they are my holy grail products that I would recommend to anyone and great for everyone. Thank-you for this giveaway Rachel! You are awesome!

  • Rebecca Satchwell January 25, 2016 at 5:50 am

    My ultimate swag bag would probably include:

    – Aerin Pretty Bronze Illuminating Powder level 01. Being very pale, I’ve always struggled to find a bronzer that doesn’t make me look ridiculous, but this one is just perfect for my complexion. It’s almost matte with only a hint of illuminating shimmer which means it’s really adaptable for different looks and can be worn for most occasions.
    – Talika photo-hydra day. A really great daily moisturizer that plumps and smoothes and smells heavenly. The smoothness and thickness of the formula means that make-up goes on beautifully even without a primer and even without make-up my skin looks so much nicer!
    – REN glycolactic radiance renewal mask. This is a lifesaver. It’s a very potent exfoliating mask that leads you skin so smooth and radiant and is really quite affordable. Plus no parabens, sulfates or colourants!
    – Royal Apothic Tinties Lip butter. By far the richest and most moisturising lip butter I own as well as being beautifully tinted. It also comes in the most adorable packaging! My personal favourite colour is the Coral
    – Eve Lom Cleanser. It’s just lovely, there’s nothing else like it for me..

    I hope you like my swag bag – I would find to give up any of the above products! 🙂

  • Kelly Sites January 28, 2016 at 5:58 am

    What a great swag bag. My items would include:

    3. Acure products
    4. Tartlette eye pallet
    5. Essie nail polish (in a spring blue)

  • Stella Kramer February 1, 2016 at 12:24 pm

    The items in my swag bag would be:
    1. Some nice peel-off and clay masks
    2. A ton of movies to watch with the girls
    3. A giftcard to Statbucks, H&M etc.
    4. Plenty of EOS lipbalm
    5. Naked Basics eyeshadow pallete.
    I would put these items in a swag bag because this is something I would like to recieve, so putting all my love in it trying to find and buy all these items makes it even more special to give this swag bag to one of my besties. You can have a mini spa with the masks and the movies, giftcards are always awesome to recieve, lipbalm is a must in a girls life and a good eyeshadow pallete is always nice.
    Lots of Love, xx

  • Danielle Rinaldi February 7, 2016 at 6:19 pm

  • Usha G. February 9, 2016 at 9:04 am


    My swag bag would consist of:

    1. Caudalie beauty elixir since it’s so refreshing and luxurious
    2. Farsali rosegold elixir (with 24k gold) since its the best facial oil that works for my skin type (acne prone and very dry: I have weird skin since I don’t have oily skin at all, so when I’m on a good skin day, my skin is combination-dry)
    3. Mac face and body: very light and dewy; skin like and is basically the only foundation that looks undetectable on me lol.
    4. YSL sheer candy makes my lips super moist and supple
    5. Amazing grace perfume- delicate and feminine; i love that its isn’t sweet and fruity

  • Jessica Rachel February 16, 2016 at 6:47 am

    Hi Rachel, I love your blog and videos! This year I’m dying to get a micro-current device and a couple of my aesthetician friends have recommended the Pico Toner (because it’s used on both face and body w/gloves) over the NuFace Trinity. I would be VERY interested in your opinion, if you have one.

    I’m a few years ahead of you as far as aging skin issues, and noticed you have a diverse following with a range of concerns. It would be amazing to see you and some friends of different ages and skin types do a series testing out the same products/techniques to review their effacy for each unique skin type. Just a thought…

  • Kate February 18, 2016 at 4:44 pm

    Hi Rachel! I love your channel and website! In my swag bag, I would have to include:
    1) roseseed hip oil because it works wonders for my skin and hair
    2) Hurraw! lip balm because it is the BEST balm & natural, vegan, raw, organic and fair-trade
    3) Nars eye cream because my under-eye bag battle is REAL! (but I’m winning… sort of…)
    4) Tarte powder foundation because it controls my oily T-zone and gives sheer yet effective coverage
    5) Dior Show mascara because it’s so silky and dramatic

    xo, Kate

  • Danielle February 19, 2016 at 5:48 am

    hi rachel!
    I’m Danielle from the Netherlands. I’m a big fan of your youtube videos. I watch them every day. I also try to buy beauty products in the Netherlands but that is difficult because they are not available in stores. But I love the dry brush of the body shop and the kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing. I see real results for my skin. now try a massage device from another brand but it has been broken now. So I hope that I win so I can try out the nuface. I hope just to get a beautiful skin like you.

    Have a Nice weekend with your husband and son.
    Enjoy every moment !!

    Hello am new to this and unfortunately am to late to the post but just wanted to say Thank you for the videos and for the advice for the face care which am so obsessed on taking care of being a mother and a student and working full time job it’s shows deteriating in my face.

    My ultimate swag bag would look VERY similar to this bag, Rachel! 1) Nuface. I’m obsessed with taking care of my skin and trying out new products and tools! I’ve been incorporating facial massage into my routine and I would love to start a facial “fitness” routine! 2) Kiehls midnight recovery oil. I received this as part of a Christmas present and it was such a luxurious product! The smell was very calming and I loved how my skin felt moisturized but not oily in the morning. 3) Skyn Iceland eye gels. I received a sample of these in my birchbox and they are the perfect refresher! 4) Tata harper resurfacing mask. All natural and gives an amazing glow! Perfect for right before a date. 5) Lots of lush bath bombs. Such a treat! Thank you for offering this amazing Products.

  • Maddison Tuer June 25, 2016 at 6:26 am

    Hi Rachel,

    I really really REALLY love your channel , your DIY’s are my favourite and I have tried most of them out. You have taught me things like the best ways to take care of your skin and things NOT to do when caring for your skin. I always try and wait to be the first person to watch your videos. So here are the products that I would put in my ultimate Swag Bag :

    #1. Kiehl’s “Skin Rescuer” – I love this product so much because it soothes and calms my skin. I am a competitive swimmer and I swim 18 hrs a week. So my skin tends to become very dry and very sore immediately after coming out from the chlorine. This product stops this from happening and so far it is the only one that really works.

    #2. Crabtree & Evelyn “La Source” Hand Wash – this is one of my favourite hand products as it nourishes and refreshes my skin on my hands. I have nervous eczema and it flares up very frequently, and when I use anti-bacterial and other soaps it just makes my eczema worse and my skin starts to crack ( very painful ). So this is the one product that I try and get to relieve my eczema.

    #3. Origins Foaming “Deep Cleansing Mask” – as one of my all time beauty favourites , this product cleanses and refreshes my skin , leaving it clean and fresh. It is also very easy to wash off, which is a personal preference as some other masks are harder to remove and take a lot of time and they sometimes get stuck on to my flyaway hair strands 🙄. But this mask is definitely the most worthwhile and mess – free mask I have ever come across.

    #4. Clinique ” Liquid facial soap” – My mum bought this product and I tried it out and loved it, so I got some for myself and it definitely does the trick. It revitalises my face and leaves it feeling nourished and ready for the day ahead. I also love it because it isn’t sold at a bad price.

    #5. Soap and Glory ” Peaches and Clean ” Deep Cleansing Milk – Soap and Glory are definitely on my top products list because it thoroughly but gently removes make up and cleanses the skin aswell leaving my skin feeling good after I’ve took all my makeup off.

    That was my Swag Bag list and I really hope that you read this. Don’t ever stop making videos please!!!!!!!!

    Hey Rachel! You are probably one of my favorite YouTubers that I have ever been subscribed to. Your videos are absolutely amazing and I love everyone of them that you make! This give away is awesome by the way! In my swag bag I would include many of the items that your bag has. Most likely it would contain crest whitening strips to help with your pearly whites, coconut oil for your hair or any DIYs you choose to make, a brand mew beauty blender, a Simple face moisturizer to help with dry skin, and finally a bath bomb from Lush to help relax! I’m so happy you have a blog because I really love your YouTube channel!

    Hi Rachel I would like to start off by saying that I think you’re amazing and I love all your videos, have watched each and every one of them! So, my ultimate swag bag would consist of :
    1) An amazing cleanser like the Soy Fesh Face Cleanser. It’s perfect for the monings to wake you up and give you perfectly fresh feeling skin.
    2) An effective sunscreen for all times like the Shiseido Urban Environment Sunscreen is perfect because it’s light weight and feels great on the skin.
    3) L’Oreal Paris True Match Foundation along with the True Match Minerals setting powder is the best foundation I have ever used.
    4) Tarte Fiber Mascara definitely an essential since I have thin lashes.
    5) And finally Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm is a must have cuz it keeps the lips moisturized all day long along with some color!

    I would include Boscia charcoal melting cleanser, rose scented witch hazel toner, a good rice exfoliant like Tata Harper, Weleda skin food, and Dr. Teak’s Epsom salt bath liquid, it contains essential oils so your skin will be moisturized. Can’t forget some great music to listen to!

    Hi Rachel! <3 I can't tell you how much I love your videos! I recently just found your channel, and you are literally a lifesaver! You're so inspiring, and just breath of fresh air. My swag bag would probably consist of the same products. I love Tarte soooooo much! If I had to create my own swag bag it would consist of skincare, makeup, and goodies that just make you feel good!

    1. Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream: This makes my eyes feel so awake and alive in the morning! I can't function without putting this under me eyes, especially since I wear contacts and it can get pretty difficult putting them on in the morning.

    2. Kate Somerville ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment: I have to say, this stuff feels so amazing. I have pretty dry skin, and this is perfect for exfoliating all of that dead skin off!

    3. Any kind of hydrating face or eye mask: These are just essential when it comes to putting that extra hydration in your skin when you need it.

    4. Fuzzy Socks: The coziness speaks for itself 🙂

    5. Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rose: I love giving myself a good spray before and after I put on my makeup! I'm all about moisturizing, and this is my absolute favorite!

    Thank you for your amazing tips and tricks! Your videos inspire me everyday…

    xo, Stephanie <3

    Wow that is the most amazing swag bag!! You are certainly not stingy!! Praying that I win would definitely help my depression, which is going strong right now.

    My Swag Bag would Include:
    – Tarte Products! I absolutely love their packaging, their quality and most of all the Cruelty-Free Company.
    – Josie Maran Body Whipped Argan Oil: Again, another cruelty-free company 🙂 Also, this cream smells amazing and absorbs super quickly in my dry skin!
    – Pacifica Cleansing Facial Wipes: Cruelty-free, and super convenient for wiping off makeup when you are tired.
    – Raspberry & White Chocolate Cookies…favorite combination ever.
    – Kiehl’s Hair Mask: I have been struggling to regrow my hair after chronic stress in college zapped it. This seems to work!
    – A Good Book!

    Thank you for your videos; they help me cope somehow!
