August magazine freebies

Here's my little magazine freebie haul, better later than never! :-

With Red, I got the orange Balance Me Super Moisturising Body Wash. I know, I know, I have a MILLION shower and bath products already, but this one is 99% natural ingredients, has no nasties like parabens, sulphates etc and is from an eco-brand I have been wanted to try for a while. Plus it's a decent size product!

With Elle, I picked up the pale grey mini Mavala nail polish. I didn't have a polish in this shade so this was of course a completely necessary purchase.

And with Marie Claire, I got the full size Ciate nail polish in Wait Until Dark. I haven't been that impressed with the Ciate brand in the past, so I thought I'd give them another go. Also with the mag was a travel size Dove conditioner which I wasn't that fussed about but I'll try it out nonetheless.

My sister came around earlier and brought with her another copy of Marie Claire with the other free nail polish shade, a pale neutral pink called My Fair Lady. She knows me too well!

And what's that other little item? If you saw my Beauty Box post, you'll remember that I was disappointed with a sticky Xen Tan that I received. I emailed the company and they gave me four luxury sample options to choose from as a replacement. I picked the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil (10ml size) which can be used for face, hair and body. It smells amazing so I'll do a review on that when I've used it. The customer service I received from Beauty Box was very good so I've decided to keep my subscription for another box and then I'll see how I feel after that one.

  4. WOW! They've exchanged your Xen-Tan? I've read that the girls were begging them to send Xen-Tan, because they got something else in the box. I am a little bit scared to use it, because it seems very very dark. :)

    I want this pale pink Ciate nail polish! :) X

  5. @Ingrid - I only ever buy these womens glossies when there are decent freebies, the grey is so pretty! :) x

    @BlindBeauties - I used a little bit today on my legs and face and it is AMAZING. Definitely will feature in my monthly favourites so I'll tie in a review for it there :)

    @MissMathful - I was surprised by how good they've been recently! Next month's lot doesn't seem that appealing though, booo :(

    @Mademoiselle - Yeah, I have natural tanned/olive skin so I never use self-tanning stuff. A pale friend of mine has it in Dark and it looks really good on her but didn't show up on me one bit! x
