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.

Thanks @Titian06! ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@mrsmouse Congratulations! I came so close to picking this up during Ulta's last big hair sale event because it gets amazing reviews. I was kind of kicking myself afterward that I didn't so I'll be anxious to hear what you think of it. :-).

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@CookieGirl1 I love and use this product and have gifted it to others on BIC. 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@SportyGirly125 I've really seen very few negative reviews on it but it's nice to hear your feedback as well because I'm always jealous of how great YOUR hair looks in the pics that you post.  You and @gonerogue both have gorgeous hair! 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@CookieGirl1 Awww thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š @gonerogue really has great hair. 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Thanks @CookieGirl1!  I try to steer clear of any reviews of gratis products as I want to formulate my own opinion without any outside influence.  I did look at the directions and it seems there are two ways to use it (on damp hair & on dry hair), so I'd like to try both before reporting back.  I am really excited to try it out & will certainly let you know.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@mrsmouse 

That sounds awesome! Enjoy! 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Thanks @GG84๐Ÿ™‚

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@mrsmouse  Congratulations!! This sounds amazing. I canโ€™t wait to hear your thoughts!

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Thanks @ather!  I am going to give it a go this weekend and I'll report back.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

I have been using and loving โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ Algenist GENIUS Collagen Calming Relief. Iโ€™ve mainly been using it as a nighttime moisturizer and mixing  it with Blume Meltdown. I did use it on its own twice to see how it performed as the solo star in my skincare line up - but had a little zit pop up around my hairline from not washing my sunscreen off properly so ultimately decided to add Meltdown into the mix. Itโ€™s great for my always dry skin but I donโ€™t think I could use it in the morning. Itโ€™s a bit too rich to go under my medium coverage foundation. Will absolutely purchase this gem when the gratis runs out. Algenist is always a win with me! 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@GG84  Iโ€™m so happy you love this!! Thatโ€™s so great! 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

I've been hearing a lot of good things about this @GG84, and since I'm a big Algenist fan it's definitely one I will be picking up and trying out.  Thanks for sharing your thoughts!  ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Wanted to give some updates on the last gratis. 

Drunk Elephant F-Balmโ„ข Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask - So I have been using this pretty consistently since I received it - about 2 pumps a night as the last step in my skincare. I do think it's giving a little boost of extra hydration which is nice in these winter months and it plays well with my other night time skin care products. It absorbs pretty fast. However, I'm not sure I would really miss this if I didn't have it - like the extra hydration is nice, but I'm not sure it would be noticeable enough if I weren't paying attention. 

LANEIGE Hypoallergenic Cica Sleeping Mask - I'm actually surprised how much I like this.  I haven't found their other sleep masks to be anything special for my dry skin, but this has a much more cream like texture and it absorbs and delivers really nice hydration for me. My skin looked really plumped on the mornings after I used it and felt really hydrated. I know some people had reactions so test patch but it worked for me. 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@Kim888  Too bad you didnโ€™t love the f balm. But Iโ€™m glad you liked the sleeping mask

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@Kim888 I'm loving both of these products as well!!
