My Favourite Freebies and Samples of the Month - May

If there is anything I love more than finding a great bargain it's getting something for free! I always keep an eye out for freebies and samples and share them across my social media channels (make sure you follow Mymummyspennies Twitter, Facebook Page and the money saving group so you don't miss anything!) but as I've found quite a few recently I thought i'd bring them together here on the blog. If it's popular I was also thinking of making it a monthly feature... What do you think?

Firstly a few things for the Mums...

Get a Neal's Yard Remedies Hand Cream free with June issue of the Marie Claire Magazine (£3.99 spend)

I love Neal's Yard and regularly buy their hand cream so I was delighted to see that the June issue of Marie Claire magazine comes with a FREE 50ml tube of their nourishing hand cream in a choice of Wild Rose, Garden Mint & Bergamot or Geranium & Orange. These are each worth £10  so definitely worth the £3.99 price of the magazine! I chose the Wild Rose and have been using it every day!
Garden Mint & Bergamot
This deeply nourishing, moisturising cream is packed full of energising mint and zesty bergamot and has been very popular in the Marie Claire office!
Geranium & Orange
Literally good enough to eat, this hand cream is packed full of the uplifting scent of geranium and vibrant sweet orange essential oil, a must-have for those who prefer a sweeter scented hand cream.

Free Clinique Wonder Serum with June Issue of In Style Magazine (£3.99 spend)

Buy the June edition of InStyle magazine and get a mini (10ml size) of the fabulous Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum. Based on the RRP of the £100 mil version this is worth £11. I've not tried this yet but do love Clinique products and a few of my friends have highly recommended it!

Now something for the kids... (and big kids!)

Claim up to 9 Free LEGO sets when you buy the Daily Fail Mail Newspaper

This does involve purchasing the Mail (60p Mon-Fri, 90p Sat, £1.50 Sun) but you get free LEGO sets that would usually retail at between £4 and £6 so it's a pretty good deal.

There are 9 different sets available and a voucher will be in the newspaper each day from the 16th May to the 24th May. You will get a voucher in the paper that needs to be redeemed on the same day from WH Smiths (or Morrisons on Sunday only) It is while stocks last so I would suggest getting there handy in the mornings!

    I'd have loved to have got the L'Occitane goodies, they're such a premium brand, but there isn't a shop any where near me :(
