FREE Clinique Products With Instyle Magazine & Next Month's Free Gifts Are....

Monday Evening, 24th September '12, Newcastle Upon Tyne:  It rained the whole frickin' day, the internet hadn't been activated yet, I was feeling out of sorts. I just wanted to curl up on the couch with some random show on British tv & a cup of Tetley. BUT we had to make a trip to Sainsbury's (supermarket) to buy some necessary groceries. On the way, my right hand was almost frozen, because both Mr.CZ & I had to hold the edges of the umbrella, so the wind wouldn't blow it into a Y shape. If not for Instyle, some cute table mats & a pack of chilli powder (authentically Indian, mind you), it wouldn't have been worth it.
The magazine section is near the entrance, so that's where I ended up first. Hello, Instyle magazine! Olivia Palermo on the cover. A pretty thing, but who is she? I've seen her somewhere. One evidently famous celeb I do not know. Ooh! FREE Clinique products!
Price: £3.80 (Rs.330)
It took me a while to notice that they had a different free product on each issue: Repairwear Laser Focus Serum, High Impact Mascara, Long Last Gloss Wear, Turnaround Overnight Radiance Moisturizer. 'Collect All 4 Amazing Products' they say. Yeah, right. The tactics these people! I picked the moisturizer, coz I really needed one =)

And the FREE gifts for next month- October 2012 - are......
Benefit! Sun Beam, Cha Cha Tint & Benetint. Mini versions, of course.
They lure.....and I will definitely walk right into it.
I just love the free magazine gifts in the UK. Nail polishes & whatnot. Last time I was here, there were Clinique make-up pouches and - goodness gracious - flip flops! 
Are you reading this Indian magazines? It doesn't have to be Clinique & fancy brands, I'd be happy with a cute nail buffer.
With September's Cosmopolitan India, I got a sachet of "Silent Valley Neem Tulsi Face Wash Gel"  I use it as the mag's bookmark, that's how I remember exactly.

    I haven't seen any free gifts with InStyle here..not that I buy the magazine..I pick it up from the local library, but I have never EVERRRR seen any mention of a free gift! I do wish they gave a hand sanitizer, though, with it..cos I keep wondering about all the creeps who might have read it before me :P :P Something tells me I am going to be the most-hated girl in the library this week...hope nobody from CA is reading here :D

    1. I didn't know it would be that funny Rads! :D

      That's what I don't like about libraries & old books, actually esp since some people like their fingers to turn pages =\ I rarely get Californians here, so not to worry hahaha...

  16. Its not just magazines, have you noticed how in USA and Europe they have such awesome GWPs (gifts with purchase) with travel sized products, sometimes even full sized glosses n lippies in cute designer pouches, when you spend around $30 or so. And here in India, you have to spend loads to just get some samples which are nowhere near travel size. Lancome had a GWP last month, spend Rs. 8500 and get a cleanser and toner free. It is sooooooo unfair :(

  17. Omg that's insane! I know what you mean. Here there are offers like 'Buy 1 or 2, get 1 free' all the time. I hope India catches up soon!

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
