Free 2 Weeks’ Sample of Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation

Hi Everyone!

I’m really excited about today’s freebie, I’ve already signed up for mine, and the reason why I’m excited is twofold really: (1) it’s Maybelline’s new Better Skin foundation!!! for free woohoo and (2) it’s a two week sample, that’s almost unheard of in the freebie world. Sachets are pretty common (perfume more common than foundation lol) but for a whole two weeks?! That’s a lot  of free product to be giving out.

SuperStay Better Skin Foundation

Anyway, first off a little bit about the Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation. As you can tell from the ‘Superstay’ label, it’s meant to stick on and last all day. Reviews aren’t totally sold on this but most people are staying it has good staying power (read one that complained about how much it stuck into the pores though, eep!), so it’s for those days when you’re out all day and then out all night I suppose.

The foundation has SPF 20 in it, which instantly makes me like it. I know that the SPF in your foundation isn’t enough (you need to have a whole tablespoon for your face apparently) but then again, I’ll not be putting enough spf moisturiser on either! So I figure, if I use moisturiser with SPF and also foundation with SPF… that should be enough? I’m not that good though, I usually just use one of the other, lol, but better than nothing, amright?! So anyway, back to the point, sold on the SPF in this foundation.

Bargain Alert – Boots 3 for 2 (and how to shop it)

Morning Everyone!

Hands up, I love it when Boots has a 3 for 2 and I straight up cannot resist it. In fact, I find it hard to resist any good sale or offer (practically kicked myself for missing Kiko’s amazing offer over Valentine’s weekend!), because the rest of the time I feel I’m very, very good. I have a massive wishlist and I never get anything on it until it does on offer. Don’t buy anything full price girls! And now Boots has a 3 for 2 on so I thought I’d share with you what I’m eyeing to get.

3 for 2 mix & match It’s not just skincare by the way! It’s 3 for 2 on makeup as well! Definitely a great offer but a bit too much choice, eep.3 for 2 mix & match And haircare oh my goodness me… I think the main trouble with these offers is to resist being tempted into buying something you wouldn’t have bought anyway. I’m obviously a penny-pincher (the blog title says it all!) and yet even I have the odd bit of makeup in my bathroom that I’ve never, ever used. Oh the shame… it’s just a waste, isn’t it?

Amazing Boots Deals On Now – Real Techniques 3 for 2!!!

Hi All!

Those of you who’ve been following my blog for awhile will know how long I’ve been eyeing Real Techniques brushes but I’ve been holding out on buying them (even during Boots Points Events!! Which says a lot…) because I know that Real Techniques would go on a 3 for 2 offer at some point and it finally has!!!

Additional bonus: there’s the Triple Points Bonus Event this weekend too!! It’s 12 points per £1 spent instead of 4 points above a minimum spend of £30, which isn’t too hard to reach with makeup…

If you’ve nothing else to do this Sunday, I highly suggest you hike it down to Boots asap, sign up for an Advantage Card (if you don’t already have one) and buy whatever stuff you want in lots of 3 (lol).

There’s quite a lot of things on a 3 for 2 offer, obviously the cheapest item is free so be savvy in your shopping picks. If you get a couple of the Real Techniques brush sets which cost about £20 each you might as well treat yourself to something else that’s around the same price, I’ve picked up the No. Lift and Illuminate Serum because I’ve heard rave reviews about it on Amodelrecommends.

A lot of the makeup is on 3 for 2 as well, including Revlon, Rimmel, L’Oreal, Maybelline… the list goes on!

In plain maths, with the triple points event (which gives you a 12% ‘discount) and which a 3 for 2 offer (which, at its best, will give you a ‘discount’ of 33%) you get a 45% ‘discount’!!

When I put it like that, you realise how good the deal is isn’t you 😉

So get shopping, now’s the time to really stock up!

It’s best if you already had a wishlist you’ve been working on and putting together, I always have one so when a sale or a good deal rolls round I know just what I want to get and I don’t end up being tempted by lots of other products I know I don’t really need/want. 😉

That’s worked so well that I’ve basically ticked off most of my stuff on my current wishlist (ie. I’ve also bought nothing else besides the stuff I had listed), time to work on another!

And even if you’re 100% there’s nothing you want for yourself (really?!) you can definitely pick up a good deal for someone as a Christmas present! There’s also the Boots Star Gift of course.

HAPPY SHOPPING!

Some Weekend Freebies – FREE Charles Worthington Condition + Win a Mollie King Maybelline Lipstick

Hello Beautiful People!

Woohoo, the weekend is finally here!

Today I have a couple of lovely freebies/giveaways for you to enter if you just happen to be lounging about this Saturday with a wee bit of spare time on your hands.

First up is the type of freebie deal that I absolutely love, which is a completely free sample that you get posted to you to your very door! Gotta love those… they tend to be just sachets of product but I always pop them into my travel bag for those overnight or weekend trips away! In fact, I’m away at a church camp this weekend too (not writing this from camp of course, I’m writing this on Thursday, being good and scheduling ahead!) and all my little sachets are going to come in very handy =)

The freebie in question this weekend is the Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Hair Healer Leave-In Conditioner:

Charles Wortihington Moisture Seal

If you’re the type that loves a bit of Argan Oil then you’ll like this range, everything in the Moisture Seal line (shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner etc) has Argan Oil in it and is also fragranced with lime. Not sure how I feel about that as ‘citrus’ brings to me mind the thought of something perky but dry! We’ll see I guess =)
