December ’20 – Freebie Haul

In the run up to Christmas I’ll confess I’ve been dreadful at keeping tabs of the freebies I received this month. As ever I tend to post things soon after they arrive to my Instagram account but I was swamped with Christmas preparation and rounding up the end of the year in December. Below are some of the freebies I managed to claim with where I got them from.

2 x Kind mini snack bars – from a sponsored social media advert

La Espanola mini olive oil – Send Me A Sample

Smashbox Super Fan mascara – sponsored Facebook advert

Kenzo Flower perfume – Boots sampling via their app

Mont Blanc explorer aftershave – Boots sampling via their app

Narcisco Rodriguez Pure Musc perfume – unknown

Cerave Foaming Cleanser deluxe sample – via an online link (no longer available)

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray x 2 – by asking a counter nicely in Debenhams

I gifted so many of my freebies as Christmas presents that I’m exciting to start building up my collection in the New Year!

October ’20 Freebies

As always at the end of every month I like to post a round up of all the freebies I collected. I have to confess that this month I haven’t been keeping a running tally as items have arrived in the post or as I’ve claimed them so this list may not be a full summary. As always I tend to post items as I get them on my Instagram account.

Livia’s Nugglets. I applied via a social media advert to try these a few months back and realised I never received them.
