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‰

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;)

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Congrats on getting this @curlychiquita!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks, @veronika23! ๐Ÿ’—

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Yay @curlychiquita - congrats on your gratis! โค๏ธ The Virtue The Perfect Ending Split End Serum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL has been super handy for me recently; I've been going all-out with the heat tools recently and it's been nice to keep the split ends in check.

 

I'm looking forward to your thoughts on the Amika shampoo and conditioner! Their dry shampoo is my fave by far. 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Thank you, @GeorginaBT! I'll be posting thoughts on the Amika as soon as I take a group shot! (I plan to review all of the hair products at once).
