Been awhile since I’ve done a nice round-up of monthly beauty mag freebies but one caught my eye the other day that I couldn’t resist posting (the offer is that good). Now the Clinique X Glamour mag freebies seem to come around roughly once a year (I’ve blogged about it last year as well), I picked up a chubby stick and my favourite moisturiser (convenient travel size!) last time and really loved them, there some great freebies this year as well including:
Apologies on the slowness of releasing news on this freebie! I mentioned it the other day but was kind of reluctant to post full details because I didn’t have details of product sizes so I wanted to look at them in-store, otherwise I can’t really accurately calculate what the full value would be (and then I don’t know if it’s really ‘worth it’!).
So anyway, this mag freebie gets a post all on its own because the hype surrounding it has been crazy. It’s popping up on lots of beauty blogs, even the non-budget related ones, and even more than that it’s been pretty hard to get hold of even in-store, it’s practically sold out everywhere. I’m not sure how I feel about it because in lots of stores I’ve seen the freebies torn out and the magazine left on the stand =O I can’t believe it! It would’ve only cost £2, who would steal a magazine freebie and risk getting caught over £2?!?!
August 2014 Issue of Glamour with Clinique Freebies
Usually I’d do a bumper post of all the mag freebies with prices of mag and price estimates of the freebies listed as well as personal thoughts/review of the products but not any product pics/swatches as I don’t get all the mag freebies out there, but I felt this particular one warranted it’s own post and seeing as I managed to nag a couple of the freebies, you get a more indepth look at the freebies this time! Don’t worry though, that’ bumper post is coming up because there are a lot of freebies this month, the rest just aren’t flying off the shelves as crazily as the Glamour one is… =P
I’m back in London! As much as I travel a lot and am pretty used to it by now (I don’t even get jetlag) I do feel it takes a little something out of me every time I make a long trip away >_< I feel like I need time to rev up again, it’s pretty annoying! But in other news, there’s a great freebie today courtesy of Boots (like, my favourite drugstore ever) which is an absolutely free sample of Clinique’s new Smart Custom Serum.
So, what is the smart custom serum? Apparently, it’s bee developed after five years of research and has the amazing ability to understand your skin’s past and change its appearance in the future, reminds me of sci-fi and artificial intelligence to be honest. It addresses the appearance of uneven skin tone, lines and wrinkles, firming, or radiance, which is a lot of claims all balled into one serum. I guess if we take its word for it, it’s probably the only serum you’d ever need, I’d take it all with a pinch of salt but that’s where a free sample comes in handy as you can try before you buy 😉
Again, massive apologies for missing a day, I might have to seriously consider reducing posting to once every other day or something because work has been absolutely crazy! One project that I directed is finally over but there’s a lot else taking up my attention now, I’ve literally just finished my meetings for today and am writing this now (meant to be Thursday’s post but absolutely now will be up for just Friday!). I love the blog though, I’m always looking out for deals on my commute between meetings, just wish I had more hours in a day to blog everything!! The top deal of today has to be 10 days’ worth of free Clinique products =D
Okay, so I’m sure you’ve heard me rave enough about the Clinique 3-Step Skin Care System (especially the amazing dramatically different moisturizing lotion +), I’ve also used it a good bit and I can attest that I love the 3-step. I don’t always use the clarifying lotion though and these days I’ve switched to cheaper cleansers but the moisturizer is one I’ve kept in my arsenal, even if just as an extra treat for my eyes.
Update 11/02/2014: If you went for this deal you should definitely check out the free foundation sample and makeunder deal that bareMinerals is having on right now too!
Hello my beautiful readers!
What better way to spend a weekend than to pop into town and take advantage of a little beauty freebie, eh? 😉
Especially on a Saturday, because my church service in London is always on a Sunday and we’re such a tiny church that you always end up on duty for something every other week (or service wouldn’t run!) so Sundays are pretty much always full for me… but Saturday is me-time =D Mainly to run errands, shop around (physically, not online, online shopping happens like always), go check out that new place I’ve been wanting to check out… etc.
Basically, my point is, if you’re like me and planning a trip into a central, shopping-y area anyway, you’ve got to check out this voucher that just popped into my email (and there’s another voucher too, but read on to find out!):
Sadly I’m not in London this weekend so I can’t make use of this deal myself but if I were I honestly really would, it’s pretty amazing and here’s why I think so:
