October/November UK Magazine Freebies: Benefit, L'Occitane & Liz Earle!

Sunday, 7 October 2012


It's been a while since I rushed out to the newsagents to pick up some beauty freebies (last time was back in summer I think), so I was very pleased to see a range of goodies available this month.  Here's what I picked up:-



In Style (£3.80) has a choice of three Benefit deluxe minatures (4ml each).  I bought two copies and got Sun Beam and Cha Cha Tint to try out; the other one you can get is Benetint which I already have.  I've wanted to test out Sun Beam since it launched so I was very happy to finally get my hands on some.

Marie Claire (£3.70) has a choice of four different L'Occitane 20% Shea Butter Hand Creams (30ml handbag size).  Three of the scents are Limited Edition (Rose Petals, Mango Flower and Date Bouquet) and the fourth option is their wonderful original version.  I LOVE this hand cream so I picked up two copies to get one original and the other Rose Petals.  I'm very tempted to pick up the other two scents as well.

Red (£3.90) this month comes with a 30ml travel size tube of Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish and a muslin cloth too.  You all know how much I love this cleanser, so I had to pick up one of these for my travel bag.  If you haven't tried C&P before, I highly recommend picking up a copy of Red right now!


Also included with Marie Claire is a three sample sachet pack of the new Tresemme Split Remedy Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave In Treatment.  If you pick up the standard size Marie Claire, you also get a 50ml Dove conditioner or treatment.  Included in all of the magazines, was a sample of Clarins Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation.


Have you picked up any of these magazine freebies this month?

    1. I know what you mean, the mags seem to be quite pricey these days :( I don't mind because it means I can sample some things before saving up to get the full sizes if I like them :) xxx

    1. Ooo didn't know about Easy Living! Will have to check that out :)

  13. None of the Red magazines in shops local to me have the C&P, so disappointing! I could not for the life of me find any InStyle mags that had any other Benefit product than Cha Cha Tint so ended up with that, bought Easy Living with the soothing Cowshed hand cream and Marie Claire (was hoping for Mango Flower but ended up with Shea Butter). I also got a Dove shampoo with Marie Claire! xx

    1. Oh no! I picked my copy of Red up in my local WHSmith but there was only one other copy left, seems to have sold out pretty fast then :( xx

  14. Wow, great freebies! Wish the magazines in Australia came with great freebies like this!

  15. I'm always so tempted by magazine freebies but the amount I spend on each magazine to get all the freebies, I could get a full sized product I love!! xo

    1. I know, it's so tempting to pick up a couple more isn't it?! Hope you find Benetint - I have a full size of that and love it :) xx

    2. Yep so tempting that I totally gave in and got the mango flower one, lol! Managed to get my hands on the Bentint in Tesco where Instyle was on offer for only £2.50!!! I am now on a newsagent ban! ;-) xx

    3. Haha I think I'll have to go on the same ban too! :D xx

  22. I made sure I got a copy of Marie Claire, I'm in love with the hand cream! Haven't rushed out to get the benefit this time. I think a red hunt is needed, nowhere stocks it!?

    1. I've had a few queries about the Red mag and apparently it sold out in most newsagents super fast, but apparently service stations still have plenty of stock if you happen to pass one! x

  23. Oh I miss magazine freebies, we don't get them often in NZ :-( I'm keeping an eye out. Love L'Occitane.

    1. They seem to be pretty popular only in the UK don't they? x

  24. I love freebies in magazine's. My work sells magazine's and the ones we don't sell we can get the freebies for well free. Perks I guess. Even though I have purchased all of them :)
