Everybody Loves A Freebie #3

This has to be one of my favourite posts. (Hence why this is take #3) I love magazine freebies! They are great budget way to receive freebies and samples.

So recently I signed up to be an Elle Subscriber. This cost me £18 for a 12 month subscription – bargain! But that’s not even the best part.. Alongside this subscription I received a FULL SIZE Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume! This has to be one of the best magazine freebies I have ever received! 
As well as this, because I’ve signed up with Elle magazine they also offer a ‘Elle insider’ subscription which is a free process which offers you discounts on brands such as Models Own, Wildfox Couture and St Tropez. This is a great bonus to your magazine subscription! 
So back to the actual magazine bonuses. In my first issue I received a discount code for 20% off in River Island – online or in store! This is great for me as I’m desperate for a new coat.. Off to River Island we go! 
Alongside this, there was 3 sample products inside the magazine. (As pictured at the top of the post) Samples: Max Factor Skin luminizer, Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation and Chloe Eau De Parfum. I already use a Rimmel Foundation so I personally found the Rimmel sample useful to compare to the foundation I use currently. I don’t use many skin products, therefore the Max factor Skin luminizer sample may convert me to skin products after trying! And who doesn’t love perfume samples? Although this one is so tiny you can only get a little whiff..
Overall, I’m really happy with this subscription and I’m looking forward to seeing what next month brings!

    Wow, that's an amazing deal – I paid more than that for the perfume alone! Will check it out, thanks for the tip!

    Woah, that is pretty amazing! I am too indecisive for a magazine subscription though!
