The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

A place to say thank you, provide reviews and first impressions, or follow up on gratis received after more use!

 

Many of us have been very lucky to receive gratis (thanks Sephora!), and Iโ€™ve been finding that while itโ€™s easy to initially post about receiving it and initial reviews, itโ€™s not as easy to follow up! 

 

I thought maybe we could have a dedicated thread to follow-ups and reviews with products weโ€™ve received after weโ€™ve been using them for a while, especially because itโ€™s sometimes hard to find the original thank you and first impressions threads.

@curlychiquita  thank you!

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

The Drybar detox dry shampoo sounds great @gonerogue ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@faeriegirl  Such a great idea for eliminating that white cast that standard dry shampoo leaves ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@gonerogue What is that from Shisedo I see??

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@GG84 

Great eyes! It's the Shiseido WASO: Hydrating Gel Beauty Sleeping Mask

I haven't tried it yet but it's on my to-do list for tonight ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

That shade of the Lilah B. lip oil is perfect on you, @gonerogue. I love a good lip oil, so I might have to try this one out!

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@quspork  thank you! It's a nice, comfortable, glossy formula that leaves a nice stain after a few hours of wear. If that seems like your thing, then I suggest you check it out ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@gonerogue ahh a transparent dry shampoo?? I need to make a note to try this when Iโ€™m done working through my (embarrassing large) collection of dry shampoo minis ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ I always do like three checks in different lighting before i get into work to make sure that I didnโ€™t miss a spot and have one powdery white patch that didnโ€™t absorb ๐Ÿ˜‚ That lip oil is gorgeous btw! Ive never used anything from this brand before, but that seems surprisingly pigmented for something marketed as a lip oil. 

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@cianni You are going to LOVE the Drybar Detox Clear Invisible Dry Shampooif you hate the white cast other dry shampoos leave! I took a comparison photo today using my normal dry shampoo and well... the picture speaks for itself. I suggest you pick it up after you finish all the ones you already own ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Woah, great comparison shot. @gonerogue 

 

Now you will have me snapping the top of my head using my dry shampoos lol.

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@gonerogue ok wow!! As someone with dark hair this is now a necessity for me โœ”๏ธโœ”๏ธ Thank you for the comparisons! Super helpful โค๏ธ

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@gonerogue   I see what you mean.

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

How far back are we going with gratis, earlier than the HOF gift on BT?lol

 

For a recent one, the hair/lip/lash multi-brand, here's the thread I started and others have added their reviews.

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

The Bite HOF lippie!  I need to bust this out again with the warm weather!  Great reminder @TrysBeautyItems !

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@missjeanie It is a bright pink for warm weather (says while today I have very dark purple on...) ๐Ÿ˜… 

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

My favorite gratis items were:

 

- Pat McGrath lipsticks.  Sephora sent me two and now I own five ๐Ÿคฃ PAT McGRATH LABS MatteTranceโ„ข Lipstick Flesh 3 109

 

- Sephora Lip Clicks. I finished the one Sephora gave me and just purchased another. SEPHORA COLLECTION Melting Lip Clicks Lip Balm 01 Caramel

 

- Drunk Elephant A-Passioni. I am definitely repurchasing this! It is a favorite! Drunk Elephant A-Passioniโ„ข Retinol Cream 1 oz/ 30 mL

 

 - Favorite gratis fragrance.  I'm still wearing this!: Maison Margiela REPLICA Under the Lemon Trees Eau de Toilette 3.4oz/ 100mL Eau de Parfum Spray

 

Thank you for thinking of this, @cianni! โ™ก

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@curlychiquita ,

Listing your favorite Gratis items was a great idea! 

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@curlychiquita Ooooh how lucky are you to get Under the Lemon Trees! Congrats! ๐Ÿ‹ ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Oh, I also love the Sol de Janiero Coco Cabana Cream, although my husband thinks it's a bit overwhelming. So I wear it when I'm going out, not staying in. SOL DE JANEIRO - Coco Cabana Cream

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@curlychiquita  I got the same feedback from my husband. He loves when I use Bum Bum Cream but he asked me to give Coco Cabana Cream a hard pass ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Gratis Check-Ins๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

I've just started back up on the DE APassioni @curlychiquita !  Fingers crossed I can be a bit more patient this time and don't overdo it!
