July's Magazine Freebies - Will You Be Buying?

So the next lot of monthly magazines are now on sale (August editions) and there are LOADS of freebies. I have to say, none of them have got me quite as excited as last month's Benefit and Ciate Paint Pot freebies, but there's still a few good 'uns.

I've been very restrained and only picked up two magazines when I popped into Tesco earlier - Red and Glamour.


With Glamour I picked up a Balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve (10ml) worth £12.00 - I seem to be obsessed with lip balms at the moment, so it's another to add to my collection!


There's also a Balancing Face Moisturiser (20ml), Wonder Eye Cream (7ml) and Pure Skin Face Wash (50ml) from the range to collect.

With Red you get a little skincare pack of Ren Clean Skincare goodies worth £16.00. I've never tried this range before, but heard quite a few beauty bloggers talk about the brand, which seems to be highly rated. In the pack you get a Vetiver v7 Hand and Body Cream (15ml), Active 7 Radiant Eye Gel (5ml) and a Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream (15ml). Looking forward to trying these out, they look and sound very luxurious!


Here's a little summary of what else is on offer:

1. Marie Claire - a choice of three Avon mascaras - Super Extend Extreme Mascara, Super Shock Max Mascara and Super Curlacious Mascara, worth £10.00 each.

2. Cosmopolitan - a choice of three Missguided nail varnishes worth £5.00 each. Choose from a bright pink, yellow or orange.

3. Elle - a St Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body Moisturiser (75ml) in either Light to Medium or Medium to Dark.  

4. Harper's Bazaar - a Neom Hand Cream (50ml) in two different scents - Moroccan Blush Rose or Violet, Chamomile and Cedarwood, worth £15.00.

5. Instyle - you don't get an actual product free with this, but there are some offers inside. I had a sneaky peek as I wanted to find out how to get the free Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill mascara - you basically have to rip out a specific page of the mag and take it to a Giorgio Armani counter. I really want to try this mascara, so I'll have to google and see whether there's a counter near me, then pick up the mag if there is. You can do the same with a Shiseido Gentle Cleansing Foam. They also had a 10% online Benefit code - I deliberately made a note of this for you guys - use AUGUSTSTYLE at the checkout!!

PHEW! That's the only ones I've spotted, but there's quite a choice!

Will you be buying any of these magazines this month?

  3. I have picked up Glamour & got the Balance Me lip Salve and the Face Wash. I also picked up Red with the REN products & Harper's Bazaar with the NEOM hand cream. That smells AMAZING. I am really impressed with the samples this month.

    I am a sucker for a freebie.

  10. So many goodies this month - I want to buy them all! I picked up the face wash with Glamour and the St Tropez product with Elle, although there were no light to medium ones left so I've picked a medium to dark product...I'm hoping it doesn't come out TOO dark!
