August Magazine Freebies

Hi lovelies,

So today's post is becoming a regular monthly post for me, and this month is the August edition of magazine freebies. I was convinced following the last couple of months that the freebies wouldn't be as good as the past few after the likes of Nail Inc polishes, Ciate Polishes and the hyped Benefit freebies. However I can't complain as the freebies are still going strong, being good I didn't buy all the magazines that were released just picked my two favourites up. 

So this month Marie Claire are offering their readers a free full sized Avon mascara with the choice of a: lengthening, curling and volumising mascara worth £10. I've been a big fan of Avon for a while and was in need of a new mascara after recently finishing quite a few from my collection - and anyways who can resist a freebie? I picked up the Super Shock mascara as this one appealed to me the most for its volume. I think I have tried the other two which was another reason behind picking this one. 

Marie Claire is £3.70, so you are still getting a great offer.

Glamour have teamed up with Balance Me this month to offer readers the choice between four samples which are worth £11 each. You have the choice between their Pure Skin Face Wash, Wonder Eye Cream, Balancing Face Moisturiser and Rose Otto Lip Salve. It was hard to decide which one to pick (trying to be good) so I ended up with the face wash as I've been lazy with my skin lately and want to see if this helps with cleansing my skin. At £2 a pop it was tempting to get the lip salve and moisturiser. 

Cosmopolitan this month are offering readers a Missguided nail polish, in the choice of three colours: pink, yellow and orange. Their polishes retail at £5 so it may not be the biggest saving of the available magazines but maybe one of the best. I would have picked these up but I'm trying to be good and not get any more nail polishes until I go on holiday - gives me chance to get through the ones I have. 

To celebrate the summer Elle magazine are offering readers a sample of St Tropez in the shades light / medium and medium / dark. The sample of this looked great but as I'm not a big fake tan fan I thought this freebie wouldn't be for me - but I do see this selling out quick.

Red magazine are giving away a Ren skincare travel set worth £16 this month, to begin with I didn't think this freebie sounded that great however now that I have searched it the set seems great so I may have to see about getting this for my holiday. The set includes a Hand and Body Cream, Radiant Eye Gel and Day Cream.

Lastly Harpers Bazaar have teamed up with Neom to offer readers a sample size of their Organic Hand Cream - they all seem to be giving away these types of products this month. I had never heard of this brand before but it is seen as a luxury brand so it may be worth checking out if you're a fan of creams.

So that's it, they were the freebies that I managed to spot and pick up this month. I hope you enjoyed, and what will you be snapping up?
