If you guys are anything like me, something free, no matter how small or large, can really make your day.
This month, the December issues of most magazines come with a nice little (or bigger) freebie. When scrolling through my local supermarket, I came across through what I thought was the best ones and I decided to share them here. Without further ado:
BOOM! 4 products scored.
The first one, which actually happens to be the most expensive out of all of them, comes with Harper’s Bazaar and is a 7ml Bottle of Estee Lauder’s much coveted Advanced Night Repair Serum. As the 30 ml full version costs £50, you can do the math and figure out that this little fella is worth over £10. This is a product that I have been meaning to use for a long time but I could not get myself to buy such a pricey product without trying it out first. So here is my lucky day. Also I got a back-up in case I run out and decide that it’s my next holy grail serum. I will let you know how that goes.
After that, with Marie Claire, you can find 4 versions of the L’Occitaine hand cream, with a FULL SIZE 30 ml. I chose the Vanilla Bouquet with 20% Shea Butter but all options are irresistible and smell amazing. Could not get it for a better price, right?
Also, Claire Danes is on the cover of the magazine, so for any Homeland fans out there, double the gift
The last magazine that I would like to talk about is Glamour, which is offering 4 different Clinique products. AS you can see above, I have chosen to buy two magazines and I went for the Colour pop lipstick in Cherry Pop- there is also a Nude Pop version, but it’s a very beige-y colour and not something that I could wear- my lips are too pigmented!
Also here is a (very crappy) swatch of the lipstick, which is an intense semi-matte pinkish red.
The other product that I chose was the High Impact Mascara in black- not sure if they are also offering the brown version- I have not tried this one yet but I have had one of their mascaras before and they were OKAY- nothing that blew my mind, but good in combination with another mascara.
The other product that they have on offer is the Dramatically Different Lotion, which I know that a lot of people are happy with, however I had it previously and it doesn’t do much for me, plus I prefer a thicker cream to make my skin feel properly moisturized.
Last but not least I am looking to get Instyle which have this little baby here- I heard very good things about Ren so I look forward to trying them out! Also they offer a 20% off discount for Ren products so this could get interesting.
What magazines are you planning to buy this month and are there any freebies that you would recommend?
