  • Oh oh my god Oh heart the world is a vast weird wonderful place it can be hard to imagine what it's like to live in a different city all the way across the globe so we're going to pair two strangers from two different countries and have them send a care package to each other to live their favorite beauty style and self care items this week we have Chantal in Los Angeles and Aishwarya in Mumbai hi my name is Chantel I live in Los Angeles I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley so I've been here most of my life some people know me from watching lady like some people also know that I direct stuff independently a lot some things I like to do are traveling I've been to six continents I also really enjoy taking care of my cat James there's some food boy my style will either be super comfortable casual like today or red carpet glam there's not a lot in between I am I'm excited to try this I like trying new things and I like seeing different cultures I don't know much about her culture so I'm excited to see what else she sends my way hi I'm Aishwarya I live in Mumbai India was born in Mumbai I've been raised here never really lived in any other city okay I'm biased because it's my home but I definitely love it I mean why wouldn't you I'm a video producer here at BuzzFeed India yeah I'm in love with my job as well so I'm hungry great time guys I'm really into fitness some days I am stronger I feel stronger some days I just feel like wow I'm a weak piece like I wish I was more confident and trying out new things if I happen to see like a new any fashion I would look at it and be like oh that looks so good but I could never pull it off I'm just excited to you know go through this journey and just seeing what they send me as well each box can be decorated anyway the sender likes but they should contain one cosmetic item one self-care item one fashion item one snack one wild card and one item to be opened at a specific time I am about to go buy my items for Aishwarya's bucks and I'm really excited they include some of my faves some stuff that I think will be her new faves they're gonna shop right for you today and we will see what we can buy [Music] [Music] all right it's all right [Music] alright so we just finished grabbing everything and it was surprisingly easy so I'm finally done shopping for Chantal and I absolutely enjoyed it and I had so much fun I got her things that I love and that I would love if someone else gifted to me okay so I heard that the Box just arrived in the mail I'm ready I love surprises I love getting gifts the book is finally you're after like two months of struggle from with like costumes and everything really I don't know how I've waited for this box for so long currently looks like someone stabbed it or like ran over it smells nice it kind of smells like repaint I just I love fumes it's pretty it's so cute I love it oh but this is gorgeous my goodness my box does not look like this I can tell you that much right now [Music] beauty product mac rooby-roo lipstick I think this is the most popular lip shade in India I'd like to see if she likes it as much as people over here like it oh I like the baby one it's so cute I love tiny things what I like I'd like to say that her packaging is adorable night right an overnight trip from dull to dream she was saying that she doesn't have any sort of skincare routine and that she was actually wanting a night routine this is one serum and one oil by a drunk elephant the brand is a little bit pricier but I do find that they work on my skin really well it's gonna take a little bit while this oil is really oily this is more of a great idea I will do this at home and not know whoa so it says luxurious right on the box so that's an instant selling point for me this is a facial treatment mas which is like a face mask so my source I love wood and not Kisa sandalwood is the most Indian thing I can actually think of I don't use any skincare items now but I do remember using sandalwood and you know it helping me so says I was supposed to permeate the tissue nourish and rejuvenate the skin all those sound like things that I want for my skin cool I wonder what the food it feels like a book one question a day a five-year journal a personal time capsule of questions and answers so this is a one question a day Journal finally each day it just asks you a random question this book will last you for five years I really love this are you a sieve or spindle ignite lamas but no but I can't wait till the fifth year when I write that I must evil oh my god this is beautiful and I don't know if she's ever used something like this I would like to see how she uses the like how she pays a good thing it's very Indian so I went for like a really Indian thing this is gorgeous part of the reason why I don't use purses as because I'm like I'll use pockets if I have them and then - I'm like it doesn't add a whole lot to my outfit but something like this I also like that it's hard that's kind of fun this oh my god okay I wouldn't never pick them because I need one day long gonna scoop my face so I tried these on and they look great on me hello fashion and they have Kate try them on and Sarah tried them on so that looks great on three people so there doesn't look good on her I don't know how these look this is something I would never pick for myself for sure I'm happy but I'm also very very nervous so speechless this is something that I ate as a kid either before school or after school it's instant noodles corn and it's the most popular brand in India masala two-minute noodles truly good ingredients you know this is a dream come true for me I love zesty snacks natural green olives oh there's a low calorie snack for my snack I chose these little packs of Olives called Olaf I love traveling with these they're grateful besties okay I'm quite calorie conscious so this is like the perfect treat for me okay I want to have some I say I have them later I'll have them during lunch and I'll share it with people as well ah I thought it was the Lord of what I could get someone who travels a lot these are just antique mine oculist i engraved it meconium over here I hope she enjoys it oh my god I feel so fancy man these are so cool I never in a million years expected to unwrap and see these my last gift to you is actually a challenge she said that she tends to play it safe in regards to style in fashion and will we're old things if someone else gives it to her so I want to challenge her to buy something bold for herself and to own it I know this is like the easiest take if you think about it it's like we have to buy something for yourself but it says that if I get scared it probably means I should buy it I don't know it's a big challenge we've got one more mystery to say for later open when you crave an Indian snack but want to also have some good old American fast food so that means I have one more surprise open this when you want to walk out so I'm definitely gonna be working out like tomorrow morning so we shall see what that is honestly I like everything that she sent me is something I wouldn't buy for myself and I love those kind of kind of gifts you want to try them out but you would never spend money on them you know yourself I hope that she enjoys my mystery box as much as I enjoyed hers because she knocked it out of the park can't wait I am gonna try these sunglasses and ask my friend and colleague Deeksha I love them [Music] I'm going to try the facial treatment mask pretty dry pretty tight I think my face actually looks really rejuvenated and really hydrated I'm about to go to the gym right now and this is a gift but she said open this when you want to work out so interesting it's a pen drive it's this music finesse gift is something that I want her to open when she wants to work out hello I gave her a hard drive of some of my favorite songs forgot to so I just finished my workout and I think it was a really good workout I'm really liking the music so I think this is very beautiful to create and you made a playlist for me so now I'm going to open up this box when I think of in dude food or I have friends abroad we think of Indian food it has to be spicy so I bought her something that we get over here in McDonald's it's this very pretty spice mix I heard that it's not available in the u.s. annual excuse we missing out that felt good Santana said that I should buy something that scares me I'm gonna buy sage lashes it's like I wanted to buy it for a very long time but I'm always scared of it because I'm like what if it looks like really fake another present it's really heavy me I did not think they'd be so heavy it's gonna take some time to get used to I feel nice about them I mean I still think they're pretty alone but I'm also like maybe they're not so bad and I'm really happy that Chantel made me do this I like them if I find uncomfortable if it's something I want to do I'm gonna go ahead and do it is this how you're supposed to do it oh my god that was so satisfying [Music] [Music] [Music]
