April Magazine Freebies

♫ JYJ - Be The One

I'll come right out and admit it - I'm a sucker for freebies. Magazine freebies, to be exact. Ever since I found out that Kinokuniya often has exclusive freebies with various magazines, I've always stalked their magazine section to see if they have anything good for that particular month. This month yielded some pretty amazing freebies (not all from Kinokuniya).

ViVi Malaysia (English edition) April issue; RM 10
The first magazine GWP was an unexpected surprise. I'd been searching high and low for the April issue of ViVi Malaysia (English edition) purely because it had TVXQ on the cover. Finally found it last Tuesday at MyNews @ 1 Utama, and the cashier opened up an unopened box of NeuLa pimple gel to get me my GWP.

Total Film magazine April issue; RM 10
Second GWP is from the April issue of Total Film magazine, which comes with an Ozaki iPhone 5 leather casing with card slot worth RM119. This one is a Kinokuniya exclusive, only 1 copy per customer.

Honestly, this is one of the best GWPs I've come across so far. Ozaki phone cases are not cheap, and this one would be perfect for my iPhone 4S, even though it's meant for the iPhone 5. I chose the one in black (looks silver in some lights) because it has this really cool lightning pattern.

Harper's Bazaar Malaysia 10th Anniversary Collector's Edition box; RM 15
This. This is one is a monster. Weighing in at a hefty 3kg, the special Harper's Bazaar 10th Anniversary x Lanvin ME collector's edition box is definitely a GWP to be reckoned with. These are sold in limited amounts at selected bookstores, and I managed to grab a couple at Kinokuniya last week, 1 for me and 1 for my friend. (Lugging two 3kg boxes back home via LRT is no easy feat, I tell ya!)

This collector's edition of Harper's Bazaar magazine carries the bulk of the weight, with a whopping 500 glossy pages. It also includes a mini beauty look book of beauty items to look out for S/S 2013.

More importantly, the freebies! The main attraction of the super huge box is actually the miniature Lanvin ME EDP (top). The collector's edition box also comes with a transparent plastic Harper's Bazaar cosmetic pouch (middle), and a hardcover notebook (bottom). My notebook was slightly damaged while trying to take it out of the pouch. >_<

In non-magazine-related freebies, thanks to My Women Stuff, I managed to pick up my free Diorsnow deluxe trial kit from Isetan KLCC yesterday!

The kit includes:
  • Diorsnow D-NA Control White Reveal Day Essence – 5ml
  • Diorsnow Anti-Spot Serum – 5ml
  • Diorsnow UV Shield BB Creme 020 -3ml
  • Pure Transparency Compact Foundation
I've never tried any Dior products before (nail polish doesn't count :P) so this is perfect! I'm particularly excited to try out the BB cream. :3

So that's my roundup of GWPs that I've managed to get my grubby hands on recently. Now hurry along and get those Ozaki cases while they're still in stock! (・`ω´・)

That's the one thing I love about Asian magazines, they come with freebies. We don't get freebies with US magazines. :/ You got nice stuff!
