Magazine Freebies | July 2016

I think the women's magazines often up their game when it comes to the freebies on offer during the summer months; maybe they know the competition is steep for becoming our holiday reading material!? Who knows. To be honest, I rarely read the magazines I pick up these days! There are some pretty good freebies on offer this month, though, so let's have a little look at what you can get your hands on with the July issues of magazines here in the UK, which should be making their way onto the shelves in shops over the next couple of days.

The first one I picked up was Elle (£4.10, Bella Hadid on the cover) which comes with Benefit's new Goof Proof Brow Pencil. I'm often left underwhelmed by Benefit's products but I'm a little bit obsessed with brows at the moment (as you'll see in tomorrow's post!) and couldn't resist the opportunity to give this a try. [Review here.] You also get a card for a free brow wax at a Benefit counter in a Debenhams store, but you actually have to purchase a wax in order to get the free one. I don't really have a Debenhams store handy so I'll probably be giving this one a miss!

Meanwhile, Marie Claire (£3.99, Rebel Wilson on the cover) comes with one of two Elemis products; you can choose from 15ml tubes of their Hydra Boost Day Cream worth £13, or the Hydra Nourish Night Cream which is worth £14.50. Details here.

InStyle (£3.99, Sophie Turned on the cover) comes with a selection of Eyeko products which are, apparently, collectively worth £60; options include two eyeliners, two mascaras and a brow gel. Details here.

Red (£4.20, Salma Hayek on the cover) has a duo of Rodial eyeliners - one black and one brown - which are worth £34 together. These have a lovely smooth, creamy texture and are well worth the £4 outlay for the quality of them!

Meanwhile, Glamour (£1, Reese Witherspoon, James Norton, Naomie Harris or Elizabeth Banks on the cover) has a choice of Model Co products including lipgloss, mascara, lip liner and eyeliner. I picked up the lipliner but I've been disappointed; it drags on application and I found the shade really unflattering once it was on... You also get a 2ml sample sachet of Clarins Multi-Active Jour.

  3. I picked up InStyle last weeks because I couldn't resist the Black Magic mascara, but I'm so disappointed in the Elle magazine. I'm not a brow pencil lover (I stick to powders) but thought it would be a great way to try out a new product. However, whoever thought putting opaque polythene around a magazine which contains freebies with various shades inside needs to reevaluate their job title and duties. I've been put off buying it because I can't see what's going on inside!

    1. I'm inclined to agree, Sophie - I hadn't realised when I bought it that there were different shades available. Luckily I think the one I've got will work for me, but it definitely wasn't Elle's brightest idea... xo

  5. I've been trying to track down a copy of InStyle with the brow gel but I've so far failed, despite visiting 6 or so different newsagents and supermarkets. I'm clean out of brow gels but overrun with mascaras - isn't that just typical! Tx

    1. Typical! I've only actually seen the eyeliner so far... xo

    1. It's a great way to try the new product launches isn't it! :) xo

  7. None of these appeal to me! I miss when Benefit freebies were colour products - I rarely do my brows or wear eye makeup so these are wasted on me!

    1. Fair enough! I used to love the little Benefit highlights or cheek & lip tints they did with magazines :) xo

  8. I picked up the elle too and harpers bazaar for the balance me face cream x

  9. I don't usually buy magazines, but it's definitely worth it for the lovely mascara that you picked up! :)

  11. I've seen this Benefit sample a lot on blogs lately. Really clever way of promoting a product while making the customers happy! :) Too bad I don't live in the UK. We never get cool freebies like this here in Estonia! D:
