I'M A SUCKER FOR FREEBIES

I don't know what it is about magazines and freebies but they ALWAYS draw me in. This time around it was the offering of REN skincare that twisted my arm. I've never picked up a copy of 'InStyle' magazine before but I couldn't pass up trying out some new REN goodies. I'm a self confessed skin care junkie.

I'm not hugely fond of the magazine if I'm totally honest. It's full of adverts (similar to the likes of Elle and Cosmo) and it just isn't one of my favourite reads. I prefer magazines like 'Look' and 'More' which, speaking of - I still can't believe they discontinued?! 

The REN samples would normally cost you £12 but you can snap them up for £2 this month! The samples included are their; Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream, Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk and Vita Mineral Active 7 Eye Gel.

The Gentle Cleansing Milk is absolutely divine! In fact, it's so good that I'm contemplating adding the full size to my skin care stash. It's quick and easy to apply and leaves my skin feeling clean and calm but not tight. I've been loving using it in the morning to freshen my face up. Someone refrain me please, I really do not need another cleanser! 

I've never tried an eye cream before, but I'm definitely on the market for one. I've had my eye on the Avacado Eye Cream by Keihls for a while as I've heard so many raving reviews about it. This gel has a lovely cooling effect and it drys up really quickly after application so you're not left waiting around before you can apply your make up.

I haven't tried the Global Protection Day Cream yet; but if it's anything like the other REN products I've tried in the past it'll score an A* in my book. REN are a brand that are yet to disappoint me. I've loved all of their products (that I've tried) so far! 

Are you a sucker for magazine freebies too? It can't just be me that falls for it!

  4. Sneaking in to tag you! The Autumn Tag!

    I'm the same, I love freebies, did all those samples come with just one issue? I might have to pick it up. Crikey I didn't realise More has been discontinued?! I grew up with that fortnightly magazine, it shaped my teenage years. Shows how much attention I've been paying recently! I wish I still had some of my copies from the mid 90's. I miss New Woman.
