I have a weakness for magazine that include freebies…I can never resist. I picked up the latest issues of Elle and Marie Claire, and both included some great trial products. I love it when magazines include a freebie or sample, as it’s a great way to try out new products.
The first one is the Lanolips 101 Ointment in Peach, which came with the October issue of Elle. Lanolips is a brand I’ve always wanted to try, ever since Miranda Kerr mentioned it in an interview. If it’s good enough for a supermodel…It’s in the shade ‘Peach’ and it smells amazing. This is one of those multi purpose balms, similar to the Josie Maran Creamy Argan Oil. It can be used in a variety of ways; chapped lips, dry skin etc. Because of its small size, it’s perfect for travel or to throw into your handbag. I’ve been using it as a lip balm and it’s great for keeping my lips soft and moisturised.
The Marie Claire November issue included three products; the Max Factor Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara, Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal shampoo and Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal conditioner.
I’m yet to use the Pantene products but I’ve tried the mascara. It’s a pretty good everyday mascara that adds some drama to your lashes. It comes in a big tube, with a tiny silicone-like brush. It’s the perfect size for coating all of those little lashes that normally get missed when you use a bigger brush. It lengthens and elongates the lashes and makes them appear quite full. I’ve been using this as a daytime mascara and it isn’t too dramatic.
Have you picked up any trial products lately?
