Beauty Freebies!

Hey Everyone!

How are you? I've had a great day filming youtube videos (although it took hours and hours for two videos because everything kept going wrong!) and drinking tea. I really need to get on with studying, but hey what's another half an hour writing a quick post?

From a young age, freebies have appealed to me big time. I distinctly remember being in Germany in 2005 and being in Yves Rocher with my mum and carting off big wheelbarrows full (ok, slight exaggeration) of scented wipes from the freebie basket. I actually still have those, which makes me think its not about the actual freebie- its about the buzz of getting it.

Over the last few months I discovered freebie boards online which offer all the latest free stuff that you can sign up for to receive to your door. My favourite boards are Martin's Money Tips and Hotukdeals. I simply check back every now and again and enter my details to the links. And the best part is the brands that usually offer samples are brands you would use anyway like L'Oreal and Garnier. Not only is it like Christmas when one arrives through your door, but you get to try a product before you buy.

These are some freebies I've collected over the past few months, some of which I'm very excited about trying.
As you can see, most brands offer sachets, but there is actually quite a lot inside and usually when you are signing up for foundation you can select what skin tone you are so you can get an accurate view of what the product would be like if you bought it. I love having samples for travelling and I particularly love the perfume samples as I can satisfy my perfume cravings without increasing my collection any more (I have so much to get through!) Also, I'm really impressed with the size of the Maybelline Fit Me sample- its in a tube and everything!

Are you a freebie fan?
