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‰

Thank you @Sephora@alterna & @TeamBIC!  I came home the other day to find a completely unexpected package sitting on my porch.  I opened it to discover the ALTERNA Haircare CAVIAR Anti-Agingยฎ Replenishing Moisture CC Cream 5.1 oz/ 150 mL inside.  Based on the product description I am super excited to try it out!  It helps with damage, frizz AND increases shine?  YES PLEASE!

@Guessgal@missjeanie@tsavorite@quspork@Loretta55@CookieGirl1@ather (tagging you all because you expressed interest in hearing my review).

 

I have tried out the ALTERNA Haircare CAVIAR Anti-Agingยฎ Replenishing Moisture CC Cream 5.1 oz/ 150 mL twice so far and I have got to say, my hair feels AMAZING!  To be honest, I was a little afraid to try it because when I first opened the bottle up the fragrance seemed overwhelming.  I'm a "I'll try *almost* anything once kind of girl" so I went for it and I am really glad I did.  My hair feels so insanely soft that I can't stop touching it.  The strong fragrance definitely seemed to dissipate a lot when I blow dried & my hair both looks and feels healthy.  Where I think this product really excels is in the increased softness, increased shine and reduced frizz.  I use the Drybar The Double Shot Blow-Dryer Brush & it just seemed to glide through my hair with this product, so that was also a win.  Where I think the product falls a little short (and maybe this is just me needing to manage my expectations) is as a styling cream.  I couldn't get my hair to hold the style even a little with just this alone, so had to add in my usual mousse.  I do think I get a little bit more lift/body in the roots of my hair with the other blow dry serum that I use, but I also suspect that's because the other serum isn't as good for my hair as this one is.  All in all, I can absolutely see adding this into rotation as I do feel that my hair is healthier with using this.  I just also think there are just some days where you're willing to sacrifice health for body. 

For the record, my hair is color treated & fine.  My hair concerns are frizz, dryness, dullness and a lack of body.
