uk magazine freebies - march 2013

March seems to be a good month for freebies with no less than four magazine offering up free gifts. It was so difficult for me to resist picking up more than one, but I've still got one or two magazine from a few months ago that I haven't read yet!
Cosmopolitan (£3.60) has three different free gifts to choose from, all from the Elemis Freshskin range. I chose the Loving Lips Quenching Lip Balm - which is actually 10ml and full-sized - and the other options are a 25ml Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser or a 25ml Skin Clear Mattifying Moisturiser, together all three are worth £28. There's also a sniff of Daisy and Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs inside.

There is a choice of four Percy & Reed hair products with Glamour magazine (£2), the products are a 100ml Finishing Polish, 100ml Really Rather Radiant Colour & Shine Shampoo, Conditioner or 30ml Volumising Oil which together are worth £41.

 Another blogger mentioned that Good Housekeeping (£3.90) has a 50ml Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream (RRP £10) but I haven't seen it in stores myself - however it's well worth a look, I have the very same hand cream and it's lovely!

Marie Claire (£3.80) is offering another 50ml hand cream, this one is by Neal's Yard and is the Bee Lovely Hand Cream which retails for £10.
