Saw this on Money Saving Expert site. From tomorrow with the March issue of Cosmo you can get superbalm, moisture surge, mascara or the seven day scrub-promo size.
Not as much choice as glamour last year but def plan on getting it for the moisture surge and superbalm!

I got it today. The one with mascara and moisture surge. Not a Cosmo reader these days (I'm far too old!) but worth it for the freebies as I love Clinique mascara.

PS I also bought Marie Claire which had free Neals Yard moisturiser worth £12 and Glamour which had a choice of posh hair products.

I don't buy magazines any more, but had just got half price trousers for ds so thought what the heck, and I need those products anyway grin

I'd run out of mascara so spent a few minutes shaking the Cosmo covers to find one!

Did you get two things in yours Posey? Mine just had the mascara in it.

Posey Wed 29-Feb-12 21:55:23

Yes. It seemed, inSainbury where I bought it, that the full size magazines had the face scrub and lip gloss(was that what it was?) and the handbag size format had mascara and moisture surge but that may have been a coincidence. It def said on the wrapper 2 free gifts so I think yours may have been missing something sad

crikeybadger Wed 29-Feb-12 22:01:55

Oh, I bought mine in Sainsbos too-will have to go and have another look.

Would be a bonus if there moisture surge is in there as well as I only really bought it for the mascara. (too old for Cosmo too) smile

Now I feel hard done by! It doesn't say anywhere about 2 free gifts, just that you can collect all four and it would be worth £37.00.

warmandwooly Thu 01-Mar-12 12:05:52

Ooh. Two free gifts at Sainsburys you say. Moisture surge and lip balm in the same pack. Right I am off to sainsburys!

I bought one yesterday in Morrisons, they all had 2 freebies. I got 7 day scrub and superbalm. None of the ones I saw had moisture surge in, but other copies had the mascara and scrub together. Seems a bit random.

warmandwooly Thu 01-Mar-12 13:26:38

The moisture surge alone,it says on Money Saving Expert is worth something like eighteen pounds hence why I bought two for the moisture surge as a 50ml tub costs thirty quid so 60ML for seven pounds is a bargain!

valiumredhead Thu 01-Mar-12 13:27:27

Are they tester sizes?

Posey Thu 01-Mar-12 13:33:36

Moisture surge is 30ml and mascara is 3.5ml
Not sure about the others

valiumredhead Thu 01-Mar-12 13:34:35

Will look out for them!

warmandwooly Thu 01-Mar-12 13:56:37

Superbalm is 7ml and in the grapefruit shade. Looks like the other skin care product is 30ML but could be wrong
I am buying early as it was hard getting additional copies of Glamour last year towards the end of the promotion and so I couldn't get another moisture surge.

talkingnonsense Thu 01-Mar-12 14:34:22

I swear in waitrose it was only one product per magazine- will check elsewhere.

Posey Thu 01-Mar-12 14:38:08

I double-checked the wrapper...def 2 products, not a mistake. Didn't say "exclusive to Sainsburys" which I've seen on other occasions.
Haven't been anywhere else to see if they have the same.

WhereTheWildThingsWere Thu 01-Mar-12 14:44:14

Don't forget you can just go to a Clinique counter and they will just give you all this stuff too, there is no need to buy Cosmo to get it smile

crikeybadger Thu 01-Mar-12 14:56:33

Been on a mission to our local newsagents to check out the situation.

Only one product per mag there too.

Must be tight in our area. smile

Sparklegeek Thu 01-Mar-12 15:21:08

In Tesco's it was one per magazine. I went through the whole shelf checking smile

valiumredhead Thu 01-Mar-12 17:45:41

In our Tesco it was 2 per mag, but I can get those sizes from the counter at Clinique, they are just testers/sample sizes BUT if you look at Glamour mag they are doing a full size hair serum, which I bought natch wink

flipflopflap Thu 01-Mar-12 17:50:19

In my local newsagent they only had one gift per mag, and they were all mascaras which I was disappointed about as I can't use it. I'm going to go and investigate in Sainsburys tomorrow. I did get Marie Claire though as I love Neals Yard, used the moisturiser today and it's lovely.

warmandwooly Thu 01-Mar-12 18:23:40

How can ytou get these if you visit a Clinique counter without buying the mag? Off to sainsburys tomoz then to see about the two products.

valiumredhead Thu 01-Mar-12 18:53:39

If you ask for samples at any counter they will give you loads.

warmandwooly Thu 01-Mar-12 19:14:18

Hmmn I have never been able to get any samples from my local clinique counters Valiumredhead. What's your secret, go on fess up!

sobenobu Thu 01-Mar-12 19:40:37

Asda were doing 2 per mag.
I got the mascara and the scrub but I could have chosen any combination as they were all there - I didn't realise it was the first day.
