freebies & comp wins jan - feb 2018

Freebies & Competition Wins Jan & Feb (2018)

Hello folks, it’s time for another freebie roundup!

January was a bit slow and I didn’t get back into the swing of freebie finding until mid-Jan, but I think I still did ok.

So this is everything I got for free the last two months.

Beauty freebies

Free Benefit Eyebrow Kit

This was such a good freebie!

Debenhams beauty club give away a freebie every month and this month you could choose a Benefit product.

free Benefit brow kit

It’s free to join, you just pop in every month and scan your free loyalty card to claim yours.

It was a choice between either this or their ‘Pore Fessional’ Primer.

I’ve had a Clinique eyebrow pencil that I’ve been holding onto for ages so it was about time I upgraded.

To be honest, the primer was tiny so I’m glad I chose this one instead!

Free Garnier Pure Active Charcoal

I was so close to buying this a couple of weeks ago but I’m so glad I waited!

free garnier face wash and face mask

I got an email from Garnier with a link to fill in a form to get this fab full-sized face wash.

Plus, I also got a pure charcoal mask with it!

Free Alien perfume samples

This was one of Thierry Mugler’s many mass giveaways.

free Alien perfume samples

There were 20,000 available and it was a simple form to fill in and they sent it to your door.

Free Sanctuary Cleanse Mask

This was a freebie on their Instagram stories, these went within 10 mins I think!

I found these the other day in Boots and they’re a whopping £5 so I’m glad I managed to score one for free.

Free Sanctuary and Garnier Masks

Free Garnier Charcoal Face Mask

Yes, ANOTHER Garnier Face Mask.

I think this was a So Post flash giveaway where you fill in a form and they pop it through your door.

Free Your Good Skin beauty bundle

This is a new brand to the UK and currently exclusive to Boots.

They had a ‘Your Good Skin 28 Day Challenge’ on their homepage and you just had to fill in a form about your skin.

free skincare freebies

I think they’re doing more of these so chuck them a follow on social media to see when their next one is.

I applied in Nov but only got mine in Jan so it does take a while but it’s worth it.

Free The modernist perfume sample

I don’t know if these are well known but they had a lot of these to give away.

free modernist perfume mini sample

I think they’re fairly new based on branding etc. but it was a good sized sample and it’s a pretty nice scent actually.

You had to add this to your basket and checkout to have it delivered in the post for free.

Free Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume sample

This is one of my favourite perfumes and it seems like they are always giving them away!

Free Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume

They had 10,000 to give away on their Facebook page when you filled in a form and I got it in the post a couple of weeks after.

Free Elemis Superfood Serum Sachets

I love saving stuff like this up for when I go on holiday so I’ve not actually tried it yet.

The ingredients look like they’ll do my skin some good though!

free Elemis Super Food samples

This was a sponsored post that popped up on my Facebook page with a form so it’s always worth looking out for these on your feed.

The Body Shop – Drops of Youth Serum Mini

The Body Shop is great for giveaways!

They had something like 18,000 vouchers on their Facebook page that you print in-store and pick up.

Free Body Shop Drops of Youth Serum

This stuff is really good and I genuinely feel like after a rough night’s sleep it helps my skin feel nice and fresh.

Free Britney Spears ‘Midnight Fantasy’ perfume

This was another nice little surprise that popped up on my social media feed as a sponsored post.

Free Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy Perfume

I think I’ll pop this free Britney Spears perfume in with my other collection for holidays 🙂

Free Clinique Blackhead Solutions sachet

This was advertised on their Facebook page and when we popped into Boots, the woman even gave us a mini demo of it.

Even after just a small sachet, it seemed to help reduce the look of my blackheads.

Free Clinique Blackhead Solutions

I’m a big fan of Clinique and they’re always giving away free samples so check out their social media.

Free Estee Lauder Advanced Night Serum x 2

I nipped down to Debenhams quite late on in January to see if they had any of these left from their Beauty Club giveaway.

Free Estee Lauder Advanced Night Serum

Luckily they had one left!

I think it was then about a week later there was a flash So Post giveaway (a simple form to fill in which I found on Instagram)

So I stocked up!

Free Rituals shower foam

Only a day after I picked up the last Estee Lauder giveaway, I was back again for the next Debenhams Beauty Club giveaway.

Free Debenhams Beauty Club Rituals Foam

This full-sized freebie was probably one of the best ones I’ve had from them.

After the Benefit brow kit, of course!

It smells amazing too!

Free GLAMGLOW Face Mask

This Supercleanse mask from GLAMGLOW was probably one of my favourite face masks I’ve tried in a while!

Free GLAMGLOW Face Mask

It was another So Post freebie so these went fast.

You could choose from two types but I went for this one because it suited my skin type better.

Free MONU SKIN Sachets

MONU were giving away 1,000 of these on their site and all you had to do was fill in their form and like their Facebook page.

Free Monu Skin Sample Sachets

I got this lovely little envelope with a Brightening Boost and Micro Exfoliant face sachets to try.

Free SUU balm relieving cream

This is good for anyone who has dry skin or suffers from eczema.

Free SUU Balm

It’s definitely worth following these guys on social media because they usually run giveaways for free mini bottles and samples.

I have really dry skin in some areas so it was nice to try this and it was very soothing as well!

Free L’Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water Sachet

If I remember correctly, this was a flash giveaway from L’Oreal on their website.

Free LOreal Genius Water

They were giving away quite a few I think but it lasted less than a day.

It was so nice on my skin but I just wish I got more to try!

Free Pai Skincare Kit

I got this freebie in the post and it was a lovely surprise!

free pai skincare goodies

This was on Elle Magazine’s website and they ran out rapid.

They then messaged me to say unfortunately I hadn’t been selected.

I saw this had happened to a few people on Instagram, but one girl had been sent a link by them to receive some free samples as a goodwill gesture and shared the link with us.

A few days later, both my sample AND skincare set with showed up.


Free Guinot Mini Samples

If you’re a fan a good Twitter giveaway, it helps to have your finger on the pulse, as this giveaway was for the first 50 people to retweet them.

free guinot mini skincare freebies twitter giveaway

Being a little cheeky here!

It came with a £1.50 postage charge so I emailed them and they sent me EVEN MORE samples, which was really nice of them!

This was also a nice follow up to my free Guinot hamper last month.

Hair freebies

Free L’Oreal Botanicals Shampoo Sachets x 3

This was a MEGA L’Oreal giveaway to promote their new Botanics range.

Another mega L’Oreal hair freebie on their site on the same day.

There were 30,000 of these and they made my hair smell so nice!

Free John Frieda

I’ve had a few John Frieda freebies the last couple of months.

They were giving away loads again in a So Post giveaway on a first come, first serve basis.

Free Garnier Hair Dye

Garnier was giving away free hair dyes on their Instagram stories page.

Free Garnier Olia Hair Dye

I went for pink because my sister’s just died her hair that colour and they didn’t have any colours I liked.

I’ve not dyed my hair in years but it was a fab full-sized hair freebie for anyone who does!

Free Batiste Blow Dry Accelerator

This was another product test freebie.

Trnd was giving away 1,000 and I’m so glad I got to try it!

free batiste dry shampoo blow dry

I love Batiste dry shampoo and my hair is so thick it takes forever to dry.

This product is some kind of miracle worker because it genuinely cut my blow-drying time in half.

I will definitely be buying this when it hits the shelves!

I definitely recommend you sign up and check your emails because spots fill up quickly.

Free stuff for men

Free Dior Sauvage

This was a simple Boots website giveaway – they had 5,000!

There were 1,000 to give away but I wasn’t sure I’d get one because I was a bit late to clock onto this one, but I still got one.

Such a useful freebie and the coupon was great because it’s quite pricey in some places.

Their site crashed when the freebie sites got hold of it but I’m glad I waited because it smells amazing and it’s great to get rid of those charity shop lingering scents.

As with all dog freebies, I send these home to my parents for our lovely cocker spaniel, Barney.

This is a great example of that.

You had to like, comment and tag a friend on Facebook and they picked a winner at random.

With the main prize, you could win a year’s supply of cleaning products.

Luckily I scored some of this stuff, which has worked wonders in my home!

This was another lovely Shopmium freebie.

We’ve still not made fajitas but we’ll get around to it!
