Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

Oh my goodness gracious!!! I am just really overwhelmed by the generosity of @SephoraBIC@TeamBIC@briogeo, @DiorBeaute@Kerastase, and @DrMurad! Thank you for this amazing gratis! My hands are literally shaking as I type this post. Wow! So many of these beauties have been in my cart or on my loves lists and now I can try them! My heart is just so full and humbled by this goodness. Thank you!! <3 <3

Planning on using a couple of these beauties tonight and will be back to post my initial thoughts on them here. Smiley Happy Thank you again!

 

ETA: first impressions...

BRIOGEO - Banana + Coconut Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack

Spoiler
I used the Briogeo shampoo and conditioner this morning and wow! This stuff smells amazing! Reminds me of banana candies, a bit like banana runts. Bananalicious! But the scent isn’t the only noteworthy thing about these products. The shampoo has a thinner consistency to it, lathers well and leaves my hair clean without feeling dry, strangly or stripped of its oils or moisture. In fact, my hair feels really soft, light and nourished. The consistency on the conditioner reminds me of a smoothie and the ingredients list makes me think of (and want) a tropical smoothie – banana, coconut, pineapple, papaya, mango and more!! It’s lightweight, creamy and does an excellent job of detangling my hair and making it look and feel soft, smooth and shiny – glossy shiny, not greasy shiny. 

KéRASTASE - Nutritive 8H Magic Night Serum

Spoiler
The Kerastase night serum is described as “a leave-in, overnight serum that nurtures and detangles hair while you sleep.” Sounds dreamy. Smiley Wink  The bottle is beautiful and serum itself is lightweight and smells really good. The scent is familiar to me but I can’t figure out what exactly it is.  A little of this goes a long way so this bottle is going to last.  The serum applies very easily and does not weigh down my hair – a huge plus, but I do need to remember to focus the product on the ends and length; if I put too much on the top or crown of my head, it can look a bit greasy by the end of the day. I don’t typically get 8 hours of sleep and the night I used it I got 6 and the next morning I woke up and made my way to the bathroom to check on my hair and …. whoa!! Color me impressed.  My hair looked and felt soft, silky, smooth and shiny. This made a very good first impression. I’m looking forward to using this one again.

 SEPHORA COLLECTION - Exfoliating Wipes - Bamboo - Matifying

Spoiler

I love bamboo as a skincare ingredient and was excited to have received these Sephora Collection Exfoliating Wipes. I’ve used a few different SC Wipes, both the regular and exfoliating ones. With the exfoliating wipes, I use the exfoliating side primarily on my nose because it can be quite harsh to use elsewhere on my face. On occasion, I will use the exfoliating side as a gentle scrub on my elbows and soles of my feet. The non-exfoliating side is much gentler and good to use all around. The bamboo one smells nice - clean; I’m not sure what bamboo smells like so I can’t say how closely it resembles the scent of bamboo. I like to keep these wipes in my gym bag, to use right after a workout and to clear my face of sweat, etc. before heading home to shower.

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

Congrats!! It's so wonderful you got this gratis after giving so generously here in the community Smiley Happy @itsfi I love it when we get impressed with a product right away like the Kerastase was for you. I'm really curious how that Sephora brush set is Smiley Happy

 

PS: I want some Runts now too! Yum!

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

KéRASTASE - Nutritive 8H Magic Night Serum is described as “a leave-in, overnight serum that nurtures and detangles hair while you sleep.” It sounds dreamy. Smiley Wink  I was intrigued and also skeptical about this hair serum when I first saw it pop up online.  It went in and out of my shopping cart and I had planned on visiting the Sephora in town that carried the Kerastase line to check out the texture and consistency and maybe ask for a sample. Then this generous gratis arrived.

 

The bottle is beautiful; the one issue with the packaging for me is that it’s harder for me to read the instructions on it because of the darker hue at the top, but that’s hardly a deal breaker here with the instructions being easily accessible elsewhere. You’re supposed to use it before bed, working the product into hair from the length and ends of dry hair and leave it in overnight. There’s no rinsing needed in the morning. 

 

The serum itself is lightweight and smells really good. The scent is familiar to me but I can’t seem to figure out what it is. Hopefully it’ll come to me soon or someone here will be able to identify it. A little of this goes a long way so this bottle is going to last.  The serum applies very easily, does a good job of detangling, and does not weigh down my hair – a huge plus. I don’t typically get 8 hours of sleep and the night I used it I got 6 and the next morning I woke up and made my way to the bathroom to check on my hair and …. whoa!! Color me impressed. Smiley Happy My hair looked and felt soft, silky, smooth and shiny. This made a very good first impression. I’m looking forward to using this one again. 

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

Wow, @itsfi , this product sounds so unique! So glad it worked for you!

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

It’s really different than other products @Danzie89; my hair has been loving it.

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

@itsfi   Sounds like a miracle in a bottle!  

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

I was so surprised it worked as well as it did @Ispend2much6! I do have to remember to just use it on my ends and the length of my hair. If I use it on the crown, it can get a smidge greasy by the end of the day.

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

@itsfi   I was wondering about that.

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

@itsfi  omg what an awesome gratis!!! I’ve been dying to try that shampoo and conditioner. Can’t wait to hear your thought on everything 

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

@ather, there’s a lot of fun things in this gratis. Feeling very lucky and thankful for this amazing opportunity. I’ve used all of the products now at least once. Will try to update the OP later tonight. 

 

The Briogeo shampoo and conditioner have been in my cart and loves list for a while so I was super excited to see it. It smells really good and does a nice job of cleaning hair.

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

@itsfi  Thays so great to hear!! I’ve been wanting to try them out!!! I might have to pick them up!!!

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

@itsfi @cianni What is the Murad product? Can't see it closely enough in the picture and I'm very curious.

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

Thanks @itsfi this looks like something I need!

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

@sprocketta it’s the MURAD - InvisiScar Resurfacing Treatment!! Not sure about the US side, but it’s “coming soon” in Canada. It’s supposed to fill in pitted acne scars, diminish hyper pigmentation and minimize the size and depth in 8 weeks of use. I have a scar (from a scratched chicken pox mark when I was a kid) on my forehead so I’ll be seeing how it works for that!!

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

@cianni let me know how you like it!

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

I’m gonna do a before and after situation and a check in every week I think to show progress! The packaging says 8 weeks so we’ll see how it measures up to the claims! @sprocketta 

Re: Thank you Sephora, Briogeo, Dior, Kerastase, Murad Gratis!!!

@cianni , @sprocketta ,

The Murad Invisiscar Resurfacing Treatment is "coming soon" in the United States, too!
