July is my birthday month so usually a better haul than most months. I know lockdown is starting to lift as we adapt to a “new normal” but in London we are still advised not to take public transport unless necessary so with this in mind as local shop closures I definitely haven’t been out to visit as many shops as I typically would to collect my birthday haul! However; having more free time on my hands did allow me to discover a few extra birthday gifts with small spend which I’ve included in another post here. Below are all the freebies I got in July!
Byredo Lil Fleur Perfume – from a sponsored Facebook advert
Nars 12 Lipstick Samples – from Send Me A Sample. I downloaded Google Assistant on my phone, signed up to SMAS and asked for a Nars sample that was available at the time. There were options to try their blusher, lipstick or mascara.
Becca Ignite Highlighter – 3 samples – from Boots sampling online
Shiseido – Lipstick and Mascara – from a sponsored Facebook post. This one is so generous and well timed as I needed a new mascara.
Just Hype – Face Mask – from filling in an online sponsored form a few weeks back
The Body Shop Products – free thanks to getting a £5 voucher for my birthday month for belonging to their Love Your Body Club. I was lucky their sale was still on in store, the two bottles were reduced from £3 each originally and I chose a bar soap as I want to make some eco friendly beauty swaps on a budget and plan to use this instead of shower gel.
Estee Lauder – Advanced Night Repair Serum from a sponsored social media advert on Facebook
Aerin Perfume – from a sponsored Facebook advert
6 Perfume Samples – Superdrug – I literally asked at their fragrance counter on the day of my birthday if they had any samples I could have – I did purchase a generic toiletry I needed at the same time as asking.
Drops of Light Serum – The Body Shop – I literally asked in store for a product recommendation and was given this to try.
Herbal Essentials skin care samples
La Espinola Olive Oil sample via Send Me A Sample in a similar way to how I claimed the Nars lipsticks
Angel Nova perfume sample via filling out a form on Mugler’s website
Loewe perfume sample from a sponsored Facebook advert
Jo Malone Perfume samples from a sponsored Facebook advert. When I filled this in I was asked to choose which fragrance I’d like to try out of two options but was sent both in the post which was a nice surprise.
All told I am thrilled with my July freebies. I managed to get 12 perfume samples which will keep me going for quite a while but most of all I was over the moon with the freebie haul I got after signing up to some loyalty clubs with 2 minimal spends which I dedicated a whole other post to here.
I’ve been an avid beauty freebie collector now for nearly 2 years. It’s saved me a small fortune and I’ve been able to use some brilliant brands like Chanel, Givenchy etc all without paying a penny.

July is my birthday month and usually when I have the biggest haul of freebies. Given the recent lockdown I’ve had more spare time on my hands than usual which has led me to joining some extra loyalty schemes for birthday perks that I was previously unaware of. Some are gifts with purchase but if… More
A post summarising all the freebies I claimed that arrived in June. Considering all these were claimed online I’m pretty surprised and impressed with what I got. Having more time on my hands in lockdown definitely meant I was able to fill out new freebie forms faster so missed out on less though! Lenor Unstoppables… More
