Current Benefit & Loccitane Magazine Freebies

Who loves a freebie? Everybody loves a freebie! So, just incase you hadn't already heard that there's two amazing magazine freebies this month... well now you know.

This month's InStyle are giving away a sample size of their well-known highlighter: Sunbeam.
InStyle is a magazine that I have bought in the past for a freebie and I remember not particularly enjoying the content of it. The same applied when I read it this time around while I was on the train home from uni on Friday night. I think that the reason it doesn't particularly interest me is because it's main focus is high end fashion; something that I cannot particularly relate to. High end make-up and skin care - yes. High end fashion - no. I know that high street stores take their inspirations from runway trends but I'd have more interest in reading about what's the latest in Topshop than what's new from the likes of Marc Jacobs or Gucci. Just a personal preference! Regardless, I purchased this from Wilkinsons for a whopping £3.80 just for the mini Sunbeam (measly 3ml) but I'm looking forward to using it for the first time tonight! InStyle is on offer for £2.50 in Tesco (So I've heard) but unfortunately my two local stores did not stock it. Also available: Cha Cha Tint and BeneTint.

This month's Marie Claire (£3.70) are giving away not one, but TWO freebies with their mag.
One is a limited edition Loccitane hand cream available in 4 different variations of Shea Butter and the second is a tube of Dove's intensive conditioning treatment. I've never read Marie Claire before but even if I have no interest in it then I still got myself a bargain of a 30ml hand cream and a 50ml conditioner. I picked up the last available copy in Tesco with the scent 'Date Bouquet' of the hand cream and scents also available are: Shea Butter, Rose Petals and Mango Flower. I absolutely love this hand cream and I am definitely going to purchase the full size when I run out; if you are interested in finding out more about L'occitane or picking up some for yourself you can go here: LINK.

Get yourselves out right now and get your November copies of InStyle and Marie Claire!

Don't forget that I am currently running a celebratory 200 followers GIVEAWAY that ends at the end of this month.
