I’m a little bit addicted to magazines. Shameful! But I stumbled across one in the supermarket that I hadn’t seen before and I gave in to temptation. Every month I buy Women’s Health magazine so when I saw Healthy magazine I thought I’d give it a try and see whether it was on par with my usual.
This month’s edition came with a choice of two free gifts; a mascara or a lipgloss. Although I should probably point out now that I saw this exact magazine in Holland & Barrett the other day and it didn’t come with any free gifts, so it seems there are two editions of this magazine!
I picked up the magazine with the mascara by Beautiful Lashes. I love the dual textured tube and the fact that it is cruelty free but if you’re looking for a thickening or lengthening mascara then this one isn’t for you! The wand is quite basic and so doesn’t really coat the lashes very well, but for this reason it makes a fantastic daytime mascara when you want the ‘barely there’, natural look! It’s also not waterproof.
The magazine itself has some great articles in it, particularly the story about Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). I suffer from SAD myself and so it was really interesting being able to read about it and relate to everything that was being said.
The recipes inside look so good and are really easy to follow. It goes to show that healthy food doesn’t have to be bland and boring!
There’s also a section about wearable tech, such as the wristbands that can be worn to monitor your daily activity. I’m still not completely sure if I trust these, but I like reading up on other people’s views and the hints and tips page got me thinking!
