The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

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 I’ve been finding that while it’s easy to initially post about receiving it and initial reviews, it’s not as easy to follow up! 

 

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

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@CC3616 Thank you. I tried it today and wouldn’t call it a cream. It’s more borderline gel/cream.  I think if you have dry/really dry skin and need hydration this wouldn’t be the right product unless you lather another moisturizer on top of it. 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@SportyGirly125Thanks for posting swatches! Looking forward to hearing how you find the Neon flanker to Black Opium Smiley Happy

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@pocketvenus I haven’t really been a fan of Black Opium. I feel like the scent doesn’t suite my skin very well and can turn musky on me. On the other hand Neon smells so sweet and fruity and suites me a lot better. Sorry I’m not that great with perfume. 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@SportyGirly125Thank you for sharing your impressions! No need to apologize, that definitely gives a good idea of how they're different Smiley Happy

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Congrats on receiving this amazing gratis, @SportyGirly125! All of those lip products look great plus the new Glow Recipe cream sounds so good! Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@quspork Thank you. I am loving the lippies I got when I first swatched it. I tried Banana SoufflΓ© today and wouldn’t call it a cream. It’s more borderline gel/cream.  I think if you have dry/really dry skin and need hydration this wouldn’t be the right product unless you lather another moisturizer on top of it.

@Sunnysmom Thank you

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

I’m so excited to hear everyone’s feedback @SportyGirly125 ! The shampoo and conditioner sound so interesting!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@missjeanie I’m such a die hard Pureology, Alterna and Oribe fan so I’m curious about Amika. 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Alterna was my jam for a few years and my first big investment in higher end shampoo and conditioners @SportyGirly125 .  But I’ve tried several Amika over the last year and fallen big time for their velveteen line and their triple Rx mask.  Their dry shampoo has been my HG for about two years now. What kind of hair type would you say you have? 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@missjeanie I have wavy hair that I get straight permed. I am a die hard Oribe, Pureology and Alterna fan but more Oribe. I tried the Amika gratis gifts and I can’t say that I would purchase them for my hair type. 

Oribe dry shampoo and texturizing spray are my HG. 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Wow @SportyGirly125 I'd never heard of straight perming before.  I have wavy hair that I used to curl every morning with a large barrel iron.  So my ends are split and dry and my roots get oily quite quickly.  I've only ever tried the texturizing spray from Oribe.  Maybe I should add some to my January BumBum Shampoo and Conditioner order and just call it a Hair Haul! I'm forever in search of the 'perfect' dry shampoo, the Amika is as close as I've come, but I'm willing to try the Oribe too!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@SportyGirly125   Congratulations!  I think the Gucci will look especially gorgeous on you. Smiley Happy

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@Ispend2much6 Thank you. It does look like a really great red. I would layer the Dior lipgloss on top.
