The One Where I Bought 10 Glamour Magazines: Clinique Freebies Heads Up!

Glamour Magazine is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a range of 10 fabulous mini Clinique freebies to collect!


My local Tesco only had the liquid facial soap left, but the lovely man at my newsagents went through three boxes of Glamour he had stashed under the counter for me to pick out the bits I wanted.  The other customers thought I was nuts - even the drunk who came in and loudly slurred that I 'had loadsha money' because of all the (credit and store loyalty) cards in my wallet! But at least one woman caught onto the fever and picked up a mag even though she only meant to top up her Oyster!


It's the April issue with Fearne Cotton the cover.  It's still only £2!




Here are the freebies to choose from...or collect all!  I passed on the lipglosses and mascara as I can take or leave Clinique makeup.  But the all about eyes cream? Sign me up!

My top picks are the eye cream, take off the day makeup remover, the lipstick and 7 day scrub cream.




I've been meaning to repurchase this eye cream ever since I finished the full size tub, which lasts forever and is extremely gentle on the delicate skin around your eyes. You get 5mls with this cute little sample.  



I almost skipped this lippy, but I'm delighted I didn't as it's a fantastic colour - 17 Rosette.  Modeled for you below by a very knackered Kat!





This was the first duo-phase make up remover I ever used and it's pretty much along the lines of Lancome's Bi Facil and No7's eye make up remover which you must shake to mix the two parts together before using. You can use this one elsewhere but I save it to take off stubborn eye make up.

This is a fabulous promotion and no doubt all the good ones will fly off the shelves.  I'm not convinced I'll be able to resist picking up a few more eye creams.  The miniature size of these products is ideal for your holiday toiletries bag and you when can pay well over £2 for miniature 'cheap' brand toiletries in Boots and Superdrug why not hook yourself up with some lovely Clinique bits for your next getaway?!

  12. I was the same at lunchtime today - raiding Tesco and Sainsbury's to get 6 copies of Glamour, plus a subscribed one.

    I cleaned the stores out of the MoistureSurge since it's one of the few things I've not tried and something I know I'll love from the reviews!

    The Take the Day Off is my go-to for mascara - so efficient and effective!

  16. I had the superbalm lipgloss with my subscription copy. I dont think I will buy any other, as I try to refrain myself, but this is a good promo. Even though it is samples, they are deluxe!

    The guy at your newsagent was really nice! It is really rare that people go out of their way to please customers nowdays! Good for you!
