When presented with the prospect of scoring myself a rose-scented beauty freebie, there is only one possible outcome – I will end up getting it!
That is precisely what happened a few days back, as I was checking out the June editions (goodness, June already!) of the monthly lifestyle press.
Marie Claire is this month giving away a Neal’s Yard Remedies hand cream (worth £10) with every issue. There are three scents to collect, including ‘Wild Rose’ – a freebie that sent me ‘wild’ with excitement (those who read my blog regularly may know that I have a monstrous obsession for anything containing the merest whiff of rose).
If rose is not your thing, though, the other scents to hunt down are Garden Mint & Bergamot, and Geranium & Orange. More info here.
Equally, if you’ve already got far too many hand creams in your stash (I have but who cares?!), you could always pick up InStyle, which is bundled with a sample of Clinique’s Smart Custom Serum - more info here.
