Percy & Reed, Elemis and Neal's Yard Magazine Freebies.

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Magazines have really been spoiling us when it comes to beauty freebies this month. I recently picked up the April editions of Marie Clare, Cosmopolitan and Glamour (several, in some cases) and I now have a whole host of lovely samples to add to my ever-growing collection. Here's a run through of what I got in my little magazine haul...


Glamour: Percy & Reed Colour & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner, and No Oil Oil.
I've received this shampoo and conditioner as a freebie before and really enjoyed using them, so I was quick to grab them again when I saw them free with this months Glamour. I also picked up another copy for the volumising hair oil - I have a bit of a hair oil addiction and this one claims to be great for fine hair, which is perfect for me. 

Cosmopolitan: Elemis Fresh Skin Daily Moisturiser, Mattifying Moisturiser and Quenching Lip Balm.
Elemis are a brand that I've heard good things about but never used, so I jumped at the chance to sample some of their products courtesy of this month's Cosmopolitan. I picked up two moisturisers and a lip balm. I've only used the lip balm so far and I'm loving it, so fingers crossed that the moisturisers are just as effective!

Marie Clare: Neal's Yard Bee Lovely Hand Cream
As a bit of a hand cream fanatic I was really excited to see this offering from Neal's Yard with Marie Clare magazine this month. This hand cream smells amaaazing, like orange and honey, and makes my hands feel instantly softer.  It's also part of Neal's Yard Bee Lovely range, which helps raise money to protect bees - aww! I really love this product, so much so that I'm very tempted to buy another copy of the magazine so that I have another lined up for when this one runs out.

So there you go - a pretty fab little collection of treats, I reckon. And, with a generous pile of brand new magazines waiting to be flicked through, it's the perfect excuse to have a relaxing bubble bath and an early night. Yay!


All of these magazines are available to buy now.
