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‰

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!

@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. 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Congratulations @SportyGirly125.🍾 That’s amazing. Hope you enjoy everything and find some new favorites!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@dapt529 Thank you. I hope so too. 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Congratulations on receiving this lovely December Gratis from Sephora, @SportyGirly125 !  The Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil seems especially perfect for you!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@tsavorite It’s a really pretty shade and I love a good gloss. 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Definitely can't wait to hear what you think of the banana cream, @SportyGirly125!  Does it smell as amazing as it sounds?

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@CookieGirl1 It really smells like banana pudding. 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‰

@SportyGirly125 Thanks for the rundown!  I'm anxious to smell it now--it sounds dreamy!--and from what you're describing, maybe it's better as a light summertime moisturizer?  At any rate, thanks for sharing your opinion Smiley Happy

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@CookieGirl1 For my dry skin type it’s definitely a light moisturizer.  I would definitely need to lather another moisturizer on top. 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Congrats on amazing gratis @SportyGirly125 

would love to hear your thoughts on GR banana cream since it’s ski one free moisturizer. Also on Amikka products, how do those compare to LP triple detox shampoo.

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@naturalooks15 I tried the Banana SoufflΓ© 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.  I’m a die hard Pureology, Alterna and Oribe fan so I am curious how Amika compares to them 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Wahoooooo!!! Congratulations on an amazing gratis @SportyGirly125! πŸ’—πŸ’• You’re going to rock those lippies! 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@itsfi Awww thanks 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Congratulations @SportyGirly125!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@faeriegirl Thank you

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Congratulations on receiving this awesome gratis @SportyGirly125. Looking forward to reading your thoughts.

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@Loretta55 Thank you. I tried the 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.  The YSL Neon Perfume is so perfect for me.  It’s a sweet, fruity scent 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Woohoo congrats @SportyGirly125!! This is such a beautiful gratis. I’m excited to try that Amika, it sounds so interesting. I should have posted here, will make sure to share updates in the right place from now on☺️
