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.

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Congratulations @averylayne this looks like a fantastic gratis! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it. I bought the OH advent calendar for my sis this year, and it was her first time trying the brand. She loved the Truth Serum.

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@eshoe I wrote a review on the cleanser! So far I really like it. The scent is amazing!  I normally don't like cleansers that lather because my skin usually feels really dry after, but this one doesn't strip my skin at all.  I just bought the Truth Serum! My friend recommended it.  Glad your sis liked it too...must be a good one, can't wait until it arrives!

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Does it have a foaming dispenser @averylayne? I have a favorite foaming cleanser and have found that most tend to be quite gentle on my normal-dry skin.

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@eshoe no foaming dispenser on this one, but it has a nice light lather

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Good to know, thank you @averylayne!

@averylayne  Congrats on receiving this as well. I'm glad you enjoy it. I hope you like the serum as well which I'm sure you will. I use that one daily and really enjoy it. I love their Truth line and the scent is fabulous. 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@GalPalVal17  really excited for the truth serum! I just couldn't pass up such a good deal. I got the whole O.M.G set for $32, which includes a full sized 30ml Truth Serum that retails for $49 *mind blown*

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Congrats to you as well, @averylayne!

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Hello, everyone!  I want to also that @KatieBT, @AlexBT, @GeorginaBT, and Sephora at large for sending me these amazing products, as well.  I'm so grateful that they're giving me the opportunity to try new things! ๐Ÿ’–

 

I am going to put my thoughts here and the pictures at the end, because posting appears to work better that way.

 

Dior Lip Glow Oil Pink.  I've already tried it and I love it.  My lips feel so soft with it on.  I'll really love wearing it this winter for a natural look.  I'll post a picture of me wearing it below.

 

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau de Parfum 3 oz/ 90 mL Eau de Parfum Spray.  I am wearing it now and it definitely is pretty and long lasting, and unlike other purfume that I currently own.  It has a flowery but deep scent.

 

Virtue The Perfect Ending Split End Serum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL.  I already use the Virtue Recovery Conditioner 6.7 oz/ 200 mL so I can't wait to use the split end serum tomorrow.

 

Magic Eraser (llama!).  I really like magic erasers and use them often.  The two I own are about 2 years old, so Sephora is psychic and knew it was time for a new one!

 

I'm really looking forward to using:

amika Reset Scalp Clarifying Gel Shampoo

amika Reset Scalp Cooling Gel Conditioner

Gucci Rouge ร  Lรจvres Satin Lipstick 25* Goldie Red

Smashbox Nourishing Primer Serum

It Cosmetics Pillow Lips in Humble.

 

Now for pictures!

Awwww @curlychiquita I am thrilled to hear that you received this gratis! Now to read your thoughts, I just couldnโ€™t wait to tell you how happy I am for you๐Ÿ˜Š

 

eta: your thoughts on the YSL perfectly describe mine. It almost seems like more of an oil than perfume due to its longevity. And deep floral, yes. It is my โ€˜I want to sink into a scentโ€™ scent;)
