L'Occitane Freebie with Marie Claire (November 2013 Edition)

The November 2013 edition of Marie Claire is out now and not only does it have my girl crush Zooey Deschanel on the cover, but it also comes with a L'Occitane freebie! The freebie is a 30ml hand cream worth £8.00 and there are four to collect; the original Shea Butter and three limited edition scents, which are Subtle Violet, Passionate Jasmine and Rose Tenderness. I was in Boots when I spotted this and only had the choice between Passionate Jasmine and Subtle Violet, so I decided on the latter, simply because I had the magazine already in my hand! I do like the scent, but I am glad it's subtle as I don't think I'd like it very strong. Whatever the scent though, L'Occitane is my favourite ever hand cream, the formula is just amazing and perfect for dry hands in the winter.
 

Marie Claire costs £3.90, so you effectively get the magazine and L'Occitane hand cream for less than half the price of the hand cream alone! I'd love to get another of the original shea butter, but I expect this will be the one to sell quickest, so I may not be so lucky.
 
Will you be picking up Marie Claire this month? Which hand cream will you be hoping to pick up?
