You can always tell when the Christmas/December editions of magazines come onto the stands because they always have some fantastic freebies with them to lure you in. Naturally, I couldn't resist and ended up picking up these ones.
Marie Claire has a free full size (150ml) Rituals Fortune Scrub in Sweet Orange and Cedar worth £10. I usually don't go for cream scrubs but with the snow on its way, it made sense to pick up something that was going to offer some extra hydration in the shower. Haven't tried it out yet but it smells good! Apparently this freebie isn't with all issues of Marie Claire and might be a supermarket only exclusive, so I bought mine from Tesco.
Cosmopolitan comes with a choice of 4 different mini (5.3ml) Orly Nail Lacquers. You can deliberate between Star Spangled (shimmery ruby red), Hair Band (gold glitter), Naughty (deep vampy red) or Country Club Khaki which is the gorgeous beigey-neutral that I picked up. The quality of Orly Nail Lacquers are brilliant so well worth snapping up.
Glamour are doing their perennial freebie promotion with Nails Inc again with 4 full size Nail Polishes on offer. These have been exclusively created with fashion designer Kate Spade and you can choose from Big Apple Red (glossy apple red), New York Noir (glossy black), Soho Silver (metallic silver) or Uptown Glamour, a metallic champagne gold with brown undertones that I opted for. If I didn't already have an abundance of silvers, blacks and reds in my nail polish collection, I would have snapped up the other three in a heartbeat given that they're only £2 each. Bargain! You also get The Body Shop Joy Card which comes preloaded with either £3, £15 or £100 of store credit on it - just pop into your local shop to find out how much it's worth at the till (no minimum spend either!).
There's also Elle magazine which has a choice of 3 Benefit Lipglosses but I passed on these because I wasn't all that keen on the smell of them when I swatched them at the counter in Debenhams :(
Today's NOTD with Orly Country Club Khaki and Nails Inc Uptown Glamour as an accent nail. Love it!
