Okay, so we are nearing the end of October, seriously where do the days go? But I felt there was still time to share with you some amazing new launches and offers this month.
You see I'm not the quickest of bloggers, I'm actually the biggest slow coach... my spirit animal is seriously a sloth, so a round-up post such as this one is a great way to share with you a few of my favourite new products, freebies and offers! And with October being an especially great month for new products I thought why not start a new blog post series - I have a feeling they will jam-packed come the festive season!
This year's Boots Christmas catalogue is out!
Though I'm yet to feel Christmas-y, I am excited for the flurry of Christmas catalogues that will be popping up in the coming weeks, especially the Boots one. Boots for me, and I'm sure a lot of people, is perfect for picking up last minute gift sets especially with the 3 for 2 offer they always put on. I also love browsing though the gift guide discovering the exclusive sets from brands such as Soap & Glory and The Sanctuary. The Boots Christmas catalogue is definitely a staple Christmas item! If you can't get to a Boots store to pick a gift guide up you can view it online here
The October Glossybox is pretty damn great
For the past few months now GlossyBox have impressed me (see last months reviewed box here). With a good mix of high and low end samples and often full sized products you really do get your money's worth and this months is certainly a treat with all full size products. Though products do vary from box to box each box this month includes a full size Lanolips product as well as products from So Susan, Jelly Pong Pong and Talika. Plus there's a fab blending sponge included from Nicka K. I really am so pleased with this box and will be using all of the products - in fact I'm already using the fab So Susan Highlighting pencil to conceal/highlight the under-eye area and as an eyeshadow base and using the Lanoliops Dy Skin Salve nightly. You can pick up the October GlossyBox here for £10 + £3.25 p&p, amazing value for all the products you receive!
Carex have come out with yet more amazing scented hand washes
With getting older I've come to enjoy the mundane things of life and that includes enjoying and appreciating a good hand wash. This actually started when I came across Carex's Cola Bottles Hand Wash last year... in fact I'm pretty sure I mentioned it here on Makeup Savvy. Since then I've been enjoying handwash and now never just opt for the cheapest or what's on offer. Though the new richer and nourishing Carex range looked interesting I was pretty sure it wouldn't sway me from my favourite cola bottle and chocolate orange scents, but I was wrong - there are amazing (yes, hand wash scents can be described as amazing!). The new hand washes include - Indulgent Argan Oil & Cocoa, Luxurious Macadamia Oil & Vanilla and Enriching Coconut Oil & Almond. My favourite has to be the lovely Argan Oil & Cocoa which to me has a rich toffee scent but all the scents have a luxurious non-synthetic aroma which you really wouldn't expect for the price! Though it's a little naughty I totally encourage you to have a little sniff of all the new scents when next food shopping - I'm sure you will be impressed and may even become a fellow lover of hand washes! Side note - I'm pretty sure the range will be half price or lower as it's new... Superdrug currently have it on sale for 99p!
Free Nails Inc Nail Polish with this month's Glamour Magazine
This month's magazines are full of freebies but my favourite lowest spend option has to be Glamour magazine as it's only £2.00 and includes a full-sized Nails Inc Nail Polish, plus a 20% off H&M voucher. There's a choice of 4 on-trend shades perfect for A/W - Grosvenor Crescent (dark purple), Notting Hill Gate (vibrant pink), Victoria & Albert (pillar box red) and Colville Mews (classic beige). As I'm subscribed to Glamour mag and they don't send freebies I will be picking up my free nail polish when next shopping at one of the listed retailers.
Models Own have launched a new GlitterGel Collection
As we are talking nail polish I thought I'd also share with you the new GlitterGel collection from Models Own. I'm personally the biggest fan of the original Gel collection (just so glossy and long lasting) and as a fan of glitter, this is a match made in heaven. The new collection includes 5 shades for now but with Models Own being Models Own I'm sure we will see more shades added in the coming months. For now the shades include - Starburst, Sheer Sparkle, Crystal Pink, Red Carpet (nail swatches seen above) and Petunia Glitz. Having swatched a few of the new shades I can say the opacity does vary with the red, black and vibrant pink shades offering the best coverage and vibrancy and the other two shades being more of a sheer coat of glitter to use over a base colour of your choice. You can find the new range online at Models Own here and from Bottleshops worldwide and from Superdrug stores on October 21st.
Let me know if you like this style of post highlighting new products and freebies and I will be sure to keep it as a monthly feature on Makeup Savvy!
