Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Holiday Greetings to the lovely people of BIC whichever holiday you celebrate! 


As many of you are aware, @TeamBIC has this naughty little habit of turning into a bunch of festive elves and spoiling a random number of active BIC community contributors with a surprise holiday treat come this time of year!  Yeah the imagery is there of TeamBIC in pointy green hats making the magic happen while sipping on hot cocoa.


I’m sure all of you are eager to see what they’ve been up to this season!  I know I am!  They never fail to impress me with their creative box designs (my inner cat loves the boxes as much as the contents) Of course the contents are always wonderful too;);)


This thread is for expressing your community excitement, making wild or educated sleuthed-out guesses as to what could be inside  and for sharing with the community, photos of any gifts you receive, and also for congratulating other community members on their awesome luck and for making BIC the beauty haven it is!   

And once people have had a chance to try out their…ahhhh thé suspense is too much!!!😝, this is a great place to both write and read the best quality product reviews!  It doesn’t get more honest than from the mouths of BIC members you talk to everyday and who know exactly what kind of information you like!  It’s also a great place to ask questions on any products members have received and know you’ll get a speedy response!


I look forward to seeing all the photos

posted as members receive and open boxes, sharing in the joy and witnessing how everyone’s surprises work for them!


Speaking of gratis that works for me, I have been wearing the Kilian Apple Brandy fragrance from last year all week!!!  A continuous thank you to @TeamBIC for every single time I smell like spicy mince meat tarts🥰🥰🥰🥧

Also, I heard someone say today they finished their holiday shopping.  Show of hands, who’s finished or, ahem… started their holiday shopping?  😆✋🏻 I started and am nowhere near finished status; as collected and organized as that would be.  



Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@heartsmyface oooh, I'm excited!  @TeamBIC never disappoints and I can't wait to see what the gratis will be :).  BTW, I bet you smell fabulous 😉.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

I have been awoken from my slumber! Personally, I prefer KILIAN Paris Angels Share Eau De Parfum because I want to smell like a sexy apple turnover.  I have not seen the BIC gratis but I know it will be killer.  The BIC team always knocks it out of the park!


Thank you @heartsmyface for bringing me back into the makeup fold! 😘😘

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!


Sexy apple turnover?!  You’re making my stomach growl 😄

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Welcome back @michelleshops ! 🎉🎉

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

WELCOME BACK @michelleshops !!! We miss you over here! I saw your avatar in my notification and was LIKE WOAH!!! 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@michelleshops   Good morning sunshine!!!! Welcome back!!!  😜. Okay, you smell like a sexy apple turnover and I will smell like a sexy mince meat tart and we will be Kilian it!  ;);). See what I did there? That’s some of my best material!  



Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

You are always my favorite favorite. I also love Ellis Brooklyn BEE Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray (i got the large one with my F&F code) because I want people to think of me and waffles.  If you know of a good maple syrup scent, please let me know!



Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@michelleshops  Ouhhh I have a sample of this (maybe) on the way!  Waffles eh?  Chicken and waffles or just the waffles?  

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@heartsmyface  I still smile when I see my bottle of KILIAN Paris Apple Brandy Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray on my dresser!  What an unbelievable gratis!


I need to hurry up and finish shopping.  I bought some stocking stuffers, presents for a few friends, but no big presents for my husband and kids.


Oooohh, my shipping label was created!  The gratis weighs ten pounds!  That sounds like last year's box!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Ispend2much6 Ten pounds! 😵😵😵 Wow! 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Saradestin  Last year I started joking about wondering if we were going to receive bottles of wine because of the shipping weights.  @CarolBT  didn't miss a beat and said she'd write that idea down for this year, so who knows?? 😂

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Turns out there are lots of restrictions that sometimes keep us from LIVING THE DREAM! 😂  @Ispend2much6 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@CarolBT  Well, sometimes being an adult and obeying rules just stinks, you know? 😂   I'm very excited for my soon -to-arrive gratis as is!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Ispend2much6 Well, too much wine can also blow us away! 😄

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Ispend2much6  The box was ridiculously generous last year!  I still can’t believe it!   I love all the perfumes but the Kilian is getting the Royal mention cause it’s the most festive fragrance:) 


We’re in the same situation gift wise.  It’ll come together.  It always does.  I just don’t want to be shopping a couple weeks before Christmas.  It’s already getting more crowded in stores than I like.  

Ten pounds!!  Ha, Imagine coming home with a ten pound Sephora bag😅. I’d have to sneak that haul past any judgy eyes. 😚🎶

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@heartsmyface : “Imagine coming home with a ten pound Sephora bag😅. I’d have to sneak that haul past any judgy eyes. 😚🎶

Hilarious! 😂😂😂  But so true! 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@heartsmyface  That made me laugh so hard!  I have "judgy eyes" here too, although they've been pretty patient lately. 🙂

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Ispend2much6  the quiet judgment/outwardly supportive combo has me thinking maybe they don’t need to see every box that comes in.  😉

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Eek, well I am so hopeful and excited! All of the perfumes from last years gratis have prominent placement in my every day lineup, and they were the easiest to unpack since I saved the amazing box, just like @heartsmyface , my inner cat, and my real life pet cat LOVE the boxes!! 

I still use Apple Brandy all the time PLUS Angels Share which I also treated myself to last year. Anyway, fingers crossed for another big surprise this year for all of us!!

As for shopping, I’ve done almost none, but have some ideas as my family and friends mostly leave it to me for their beauty needs, lol. 💗💗💗

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@sister13  Oh gosh are you mostly unpacked now?  It seems like it’s been a while but also, we’re still not completely moved in and it’s been,what, six years? Probably a sign we don’t need what’s in the lingering boxes.😅

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

So, we are mostly unpacked for the house in general, but I still haven't fully unpacked all my perfumes (2 med/large boxes are left, but I unpacked 2 smaller boxes plus the Sephora 2021 gratis box) and a couple of makeup/accessory boxes. Otherwise, just the general basement boxes that may never get fully organized, haha.
