Magazine Freebies: InStyle & Clinique

Hi dolls,

I've been a really bad blogger this week as my holiday plans have been getting on top with me and it seems that there is still so much to do and time is just running out. Anyways enough of that as I'll do a little holiday post on Sunday and hopefully I will have some Minnie Mouse inspired nails to show you.

So this month InStyle magazine have teamed up with Clinique to offer their readers a choice of four products which according to the magazine is worth £32. I really love a Clinique freebie as I haven't really tried the brand as much as what others may have so I think this is a great way to try the brand.

I think the selection that is available with the magazine is great as you can try out products from both their cosmetic and skincare range. The only thing I think could have been changed is their mascara as this has been featured as a freebie a couple of times so I have a few samples of this hanging around.

With InStyle you can pick up: Clinique Turnaround Night Radiance Moisturiser, Long Last Glosswear, Repairwear Laser Focus and High Impact Mascara. 

I find the skincare sample sizes are really cute and perfect for travel sizes, my mom actually uses both these products and has already nabbed these off me as she wants to take them on holiday. The makeup products I tried out today and instantly fell in love with the gloss, the shade is really cute and will be purchased in full size in duty free or Sephora. The mascara is one I have used before as it was released with Cosmo a few months back and again a really great product, which will be repurchased.

I don't think these sample products add up to the price that the magazine claims - probably more around the £27 mark but still this is a really great saving and a great way to try out the products before spending as Clinique products aren't cheap especially when looking at their skincare range.

The magazine retails at £3.80 but have heard that Tesco have an offer on their InStyle magazine where you can pick it up for £2.50 (bargain). So have you tried these freebies yet? If so what do you think of them?
