Yeah yeah, I've been slacking it here on the blog lately. Being back at working again after maternity leave and looking after Alfie and the house is taking its toll on me and the blog. As soon as I've finished work I can barely find the energy to do anything and I binge watch Pretty Little Liars. It's my latest obsession. How did I not start watching it sooner? Do forgive me, I won't be posting as regularly as I used to. I know there's no need for apologies but I feel the need to.
Anyway my absence is not the topic of this post. In my spare time I like to flick through a good magazine, whether it be Elle or Cosmopolitan but I'd be lying if I said that the freebies included in such magazines didn't persuade me to buy them.
This month has been a pretty good month in terms of magazine freebies. I didn't want to spend too much money on magazines so I stuck to just buying two.
First up is Elle, inside there was a skincare set of three from The Organic Pharmacy. I am besotted with skincare at the moment and I had never heard of the brand so I thought it was worth giving it a trial. Included in the set is a tiny 5ml sample size of the Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream, 10ml of the Rose Facial Cleansing Gel and Antioxidant Lip Balm. I'm looking forward to trying them out and seeing how they work for my skin and lips. I'm particularly excited about trying the Rose Facial Cleansing Gel.
Next is InStyle. It's the first time that I've purchased the magazine, but how could I not when it included a rather generous size of the St Tropez In Shower Tanning Lotion. It's become quite a hit and in some cases a bit of a miss in the beauty community and so I wanted to try it for myself. I haven't fake tanned in so long due to not having the time so I think I will have to try it myself soon and see how it fairs.
Unfortunately those two magazines are the only ones that catched my eye in terms of freebies. I'm hoping next month will be even better.
