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.

Thank you very much for mom’s review @cianni. I am looking forward to to trying this out also. I have thick wavy hair that is prone to frizz.

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

@cianni   That's a great review; thanks!

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

@cianni  Thanks so much to you and your mom for a great review!! This definitely looks like something that I'd like for my curly hair, especially since it seems lightweight!!😊

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

@yankeefaithful her hair is on the finer side and she had no problem with it weighing down her hair!

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

This sounds great, @cianni! With my curly hair, I am definitely interested and I put it on my loves list.

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

A couple quick first impression updates -

 

SC Bamboo Exfoliating Wipes - The exfoliating side is a bit ouch, don't really recommend that... BUT, the soft cloth side is very nice. I do feel it removed makeup without tugging, and did not leave my skin feeling greasy or like it needed a rinse, as some remover wipes can. My skin also did not feel dry or irritated, just comfortable. These came at the perfect time as I am almost out of my current pack of remover wipes, and I definitely see myself using up this one as well. I'll just avoid the exfoliating side. 

 

SC Uncomplicated Brow Kit - I don't spend much time on my brows, I tweeze the rogue hairs, use an angled brush for product application, and a spoolie to comb it through, and I already have what I need to achieve that. However, I did give those three tools in this kit a try and I do like them. They feel nice in the hand, the tweezers are good quality and work really well for grabbing small hairs in tight spots. For me, personally, it's too many tools for my every day brow routine, but if someone does have a more detailed routine and requires more tools, I would recommend this set as a good all in one everything you need is right there option. The zippered pouch is great to keep everything together as well, makes traveling with it easy.

@alexasteph  Thanks for your thoughts on the wipes and the brow tools 👍

 

I love Sephora Cleansing Wipes, but I’m not a fan of their textured ones. You may like these Cucumber ones instead, which are soft on both sides:

  

SEPHORA COLLECTION - Cleansing Wipes - Cucumber - Anti-fatigue

 

They’re currently my favourite ones. I also like the Rose and the Coconut 😊

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

@PinkEvergreen The cucumber sounds nice! I do really like cucumbers. I'll check those ones out after I use up this pack!

When I first opened the gratis box, I was excited to find this gorgeous DIOR - BACKSTAGE Glow Face Palette - Glitz (not sure why I can't tag the 002 Glitz palette specifically), but also a little curious to see if the shades would work for me. I’ve used this beauty every day for the last 4 days and am loving the glitz and glow I’m getting from it (and the compliments on the glow I have going on!)

 

The bronze shade (bottom right) is bit too warm for my cheeks but it works fabulously on my eyelids for a wash of bronze – the metallic sheen looks great for the summer! I used the peach powder as a blush – it has a nice satin-y finish to it. The peach complements (and tones down) the pink I have in my cheeks and gives me some warmth that looks great with the pink and the gold glitter strobe highlight from the palette (i.e., the top 2 shades).  There are microglitters in the pink and gold highlighters so I use a really light hand when applying these two when I want a softer but still noticeable glow, and add more product when I want to amp it up more! I’ve been really happy with how I’m able to use this palette and I’m looking forward to incorporating this in my summer looks. Thank you again @TeamBIC  and @DiorBeaute!  <3

It’s very pretty @PinkEvergreen. After using this one I might go pick up the other one! 

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

The Dior palette sounds great - Thanks for reviewing it for us, @itsfi!

BRIOGEO - Banana + Coconut Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack

I have long fine hair and they get dried and tangled real easy.  When i first receive the goodies, i am curious yet skeptical that they would work for me since most of shampoo and conditioners dont.  Ladies, i'm happy to report that they do.  My hair feel soft and bouncy and i am able to comb through them (yes) after washing.  And my hair wont feel oily afterward.  I'm neutral with the scent.  I can see some replenish in the future Smiley Wink

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

@blackkitty2014 ,

Today I used the BRIOGEO - Banana + Coconut Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack . 

My husband used it yesterday.  We were both very pleased with the effects.  Soft and bouncy, banana-fragrant hair.  My hair is short, fine, and straight, while my husband has thicker, curly hair.  There was nothing not to like, unless you don't like having scented hair.

The shampoo is very liquid, like water, and it's easy to pour too much into your hand from the wide top.   I accidentally wasted too much this morning, something I will need to be more careful about.  The conditioner is very thick and not much is required.

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

@tsavorite I’m so glad that both of you love the Briogeo 😍. I use it again last night and I am pretty confident to say these 2 work for me 😀 I still like the feel of my hair after wash Smiley Wink I can’t squeeze the conditioner out of the bottle since it is soo thick so I just take the cap off and scoop a small amount out. I need to transfer it to a jar

 

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

@blackkitty2014 I have really enjoyed this shampoo/conditioner combo as well! I totally agree with you about how soft and manageable my hair is, and even the next day I don’t feel like I needed dry shampoo or additional oil for my ends. I actually love the scent so much! I mentioned already it reminds by me of the banana Laffy Taffy flavor which is my favorite. I am a big fan of this one. I have used and enjoyed Briogeo products before and I like their newest addition quite a bit!
