I am not a regular magazine buyer but sometimes I just like to relax with my coffee and have a look at those glossy pages of beauty, lifestyle and fashion. And last weekend I decided to have my 'me time with magazine' so went to the shop to buy something. My attention caught Glamour and Marie Claire, basically because of free gifts they had. So I want to share with you in case you are willing to get those freebies.
Marie Claire, £3.90, has included Lip Gloss by Neal's Yard Remedies in Goji Berry worth £9.50.
The lip gloss contains antioxidant white tea, organic orange oil, organic castor seed oil and beeswax to nourish and protect lips. It is more like a balm than lip gloss, feels very moisturising on the lips, it's not sticky and smells and tastes like orange. The colour is very light berry and quite transparent on the lips but I like it a lot as it's like a very nourishing tinted balm and I'm sucker for those. I've checked already website of Neal's Yard Remedies and they have a lovely range of organic beauty products.
Glamour, £2, has a choice of MODEL co gifts: Fibre Lashxtend worth £16
Illusion lip liner with built in sharpener worth £16
Eye Define Eye pencil with built in sharpener worth £11
Shine Ultra lip gloss in Berry Pink worth £12
Shine Ultra lip gloss in Striptease worth £12
In my local Tesco there were only mascara and lip gloss to choose from and as I love my lip glosses I chose the latter. The colour is Berry Pink and it looks very pretty in the tub but it's pretty transparent on the lips and the lip gloss is a bit too sticky for my liking so for £2 it was worth trying but I don't think is worth the full price. But the packaging is really cute with the little mirror.
Have you bought any of those magazines? Are you attracted to free gifts with magazines?
