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‰

Thanks for your insightful review @mrsmouse! The prospect of having super soft hair is very alluring! I donโ€™t have much body to my hair either, but I suspect itโ€™s bc itโ€™s very long and weighed down. Will have to look into a similar mousse like the one you mentioned ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

My hair is about bra band level, so I hear you on the length weighing it down a little @Guessgal.  I've wound up cutting some layers in it to help try to give it a little more chance at body & of course the mousse with the blow drying helps too.  Laugh if you will, but I even poof the top and put a clip in before bed to hold it while I'm sleeping to try to add more body.  A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, right?  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@mrsmouse  I know I have a few smaller bottles of this and really enjoy it. Itโ€™s a good reminder reading your review to get back to it after so many other, not as great, products came into my life. 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

I am actually so glad that I got to try this @missjeanie  because I would not have picked up on my own due to being afraid that the fragrance would be too strong.  I just can't get over how soft my hair feels after using it.  Do you have the same experience with it?  I just keep running my hand through my hair.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Thank you for providing the review @mrsmouse. I use a  mousse like product and massage it into my roots for volume. 

 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Good idea @Loretta55๐Ÿ™‚

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

You're really making me want to try this, @mrsmouse

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

I'm not trying to be an enabler @CookieGirl1, but I am still amazed at how soft my hair feels!

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Sounds great so far, @mrsmouse!

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

This sounds great!  Congratulations,  @mrsmouse!

Thanks @greeneyedgirl107๐Ÿ™‚

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@mrsmouse  Wow this is super cool that Alterna noticed your feedback about the product! Could you link me to where your original post was? Iโ€™d love to take a look!

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Actually @Guessgal, I was a little confused by that part.  I hadn't tried this particular product before.  I had tried a different Alterna product so I wonder if something got mixed up & somehow I wound up with this as a mistake?  I just figured I would treat it like any other gratis and do a review of it now.

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Oh is this the original CC Cream @mrsmouse ?  I love it if it's the same one.  Let us know how you end up liking it!

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

The card that came with it did say it was the original @missjeanie๐Ÿ™‚

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Congratulations, @mrsmouse !  Enjoy trying out your Gratis of the ALTERNA HAIRCARE - CAVIAR Anti-Agingยฎ Replenishing Moisture CC Cream!  I look forward to hearing more about it!

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Thank you @tsavorite๐Ÿ™‚

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Congrats, @mrsmouse! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it!

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Thanks @quspork!  I will be trying it out this weekend and posting about it next week.  ๐Ÿ™‚
