Magazine Freebies

Hi lovelies,

So this month I've found the magazines are giving away great freebies in their issue, and I thought I'd share with you my favourites:

Marie Claire:

This month Marie Claire have teamed up with Neal's Yard to give away one of their moisturisers. The 45ml Rehydrating Rose moisturiser is for normal skin and is worth £12.

I've wanted to try this out for a while and this was the perfect opportunity. I wasn't sure that this was going to do anything for my skin as I class it as oily, but I was surprised.

I've been using it daily since getting it and do really love it. I find it a little oily when applying but find it does dry into the skin, and doesn't my skin feel soft when using this. 

I will see how I get on with this product and may consider re-purchasing. The range is quite expensive but the magazine also offer 20% off to its readers to be used until April.


This month Cosmo have teamed up with Clinique for freebies, you can get your hands on four different products which together work out at £37.

Available are: Clinique's Superbalm Moisturising Gloss, High Impact Mascara, 7 Day Scrub Cream and Moisture Surge.

I chose the mascara after the recommendation from my mom (as she's a big fan of Clinique) and I can safely say I'm glad I chose this as I've fell in love with it. I've never tried the brand before but they are doing well in my opinion after using this product.

It has prompted me to wanting to try out the other products available this month with the magazine.


For me personally, I've saved the best til last. I was really excited when I saw Glamour this month (not only because of my love for Jennifer Lawrence) when I saw Percy and Reed were offering four of their products with the magazine I couldn't wait to snap up the hair mask.

The four products to collect are their: Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner, Hydrating Mask and Flawless Finishing Polish.

I chose their hair mask because the one I've been using currently is running out. However to be fair I will probably get all four as together the set is worth £43.

The mask contains marshmallow and coconut oil - already sounds lovely, and helps treat stressed-out hair. I'm really looking forward to using this product and hope it lives it to the hype I've built around it.

Not only did this months magazine come with this amazing freebie, it also came with a little supplement magazine featuring all the top beauty looks.

Secondly before I was flicking through the magazine I said to my mom how cool it would be for the magazine to have a Estee Lauder sample of their latest foundation - after seeing all the ads for it. What happened to appear that exact sample. I cannot wait to try this sample out I think it might be a little dark for my skin but it means I can get a feel for it - and wear it inside just incase. 

I hope you enjoyed this post, and have you got any of these freebies yet?
