Magazines I bought in April – Including freebies (May issues)

I’ve treated myself to a few magazines, this month, partly because there’s been some fab freebie and partly because I, really am, enjoying reading them which makes them quite a nice little treat!

I picked up ‘Glamour’ which didn’t have a freebie this month but it’s only £2 and, as with last month, I really enjoyed reading it! I think Glamour may be the magazine I pick up every month, with others depending on what things come free and whether or not I can budget in an extra issue.

I also picked up ‘Red’ magazine which, as you can see, is coming with Aromatherapy associates products this month, in the May edition. I decided to get the Rose facemask, I love face masks, I love rose – Haven’t tried this out yet but really looking forward to it! (Red magazine is £4)

Lastly, I’ve picked up ‘Marie Claire’. This was £3.80 and came with a ‘Ciate’ paint pot in the shade ‘Sand Dune 085’ worth £9 as well as a 25ml tube of Jergens Ultra Healing moisturiser. I’ve really wanted to try a Ciate nail polish, and I’m a big fan of Jergens so this was a win win purchase.

I’ve really enjoyed reading all of the magazines, this month, and I love the ciate polish plus I expect to love the other freebies too. I’m really enjoying this magazine malarkey.

    I got the marie claire magazine also more so for the nail polish as have never tried ciate before. Unfortunately when i opened it the post was smashed and the polish had leaked and it won't even open because its all dried up so the lid/brush is stuck. I messaged marie claire and they are happy to replace it with another bottle thankfully. Just waiting for it had love to see what the shade you got looks like the only one available was the other shade when i bought it.

      Yeah I did see that, may definitely be picking one up next month!

      Wonder which shade they send you. I wasn't sure which one I wanted but they only had sand dune so it made my decision for me, it's gorgeous. Keep an eye out for a nail of the week with it later this week 🙂
