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.

Did anyone guess right?!?!

😂🤣🥰😂 @GG84 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thank you so much @AlexBT ! You pamper us so much! 🤗🤗 Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays! 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Ahh when I saw the PM come through, I was so excited for this one!! Last years sounds amazing as well - I purchased KILIAN Paris Angels Share Eau De Parfum for myself earlier this year after receiving a sample, so I can imagine how delish KILIAN Paris Apple Brandy Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray is!!


I am actually just about done my shopping this year! I usually aim to be done by Black Friday, but so many sales have started early that I couldn’t help myself! I keep a running list on my phone of ideas for my loved ones throughout the year, to avoid being stuck for ideas, but admittedly this year is harder than usual! I just have to pick up some things for my fiancé, but it seems so crazy to be buying even more things when we’re less than 90 days out from the wedding. Any ideas are appreciated! Doesn’t help that he just had a birthday as well 🤦🏽‍♀️

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

I am so curious about Angels Share @cianni ! It is a BIC favorite and that’s for a reason! Congratulations on your coming wedding!! 😃🎉🎉🎉

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Saradestin thank you!! and i highly recommend Angels Share if you want to smell like a boozy apple pie! I can't think of a more accurate way to describe it. It's definitely one of the more "grown up" warm and sweet fragrances I own!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

I wore this today, boozy apple pie is a pretty great description! @cianni @Saradestin 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Mmmm.... amazing @sister13 @cianni ! 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Congratulations @cianni! 🥂


Kilian’s Angel Share is a favorite of mine as well. Smells so good! 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@itsfi thank you!! 💍

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Eeek! I'm really behind this year on my holiday shopping @heartsmyface! Wait, let me rephrase - I'm really behind this year on my holiday shopping for other people. I seem to be way ahead of the game with shopping for myself though... 😂 


Can't wait to see and hear about the unboxings! 💖 @TeamBIC's creativity and generosity knows no bounds! 


By the way, I am loving the design of that gift wrap and the ornament in your OP photos! 😍 Love the whole aesthetics! And those red nails too!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Do you remember the gift boxes, sleeves and bags that Sephora had a bunch of years ago? I have saved and hoarded them year after year and make everyone fold them back up to save for the next year. I’ll have to take a picture of them this year. That was such a treat and they were so sturdy! @itsfi 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Ohhhh @sister13, definitely take (and post) photos. I would love to see your collection. I bet it's spectacular! 😍


I've loved all the packaging and you are so right, they hold up really well. I wish I had hoarded mine. I've kept a few but have used most as gift boxes over the years! There needs to be a display of all the Sephora packaging over the years. Hmmm..., I wonder if Sephora has something like that - @TeamBIC

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@itsfi What a fun idea! 💜 I'm not aware of this existing anywhere, but watch - I'm going to be wandering the halls of Sephora HQ one of these days and go "oh!" 😂 I'll keep an eye out! 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@itsfi 😔 same.  I need to get better at the ‘for other people’ part.  

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Hahaha! It's nice to know I'm in good company, @heartsmyface! Gonna have to kick this "gifts for others" into high gear! 🛍

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@itsfi every time i do my holiday shopping, it seems to be a "one for me, one for you" by the time i get to checkout... i was doing okay-ish on my low buy for 2022, but all seemed to fall apart in the last quarter. there's always next year!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@cianni, the holiday sales are really hard to resist! Even when you're prepared for the avalanche of sale after sale after sale, it still gets ya! lol, yes, there is always next year. The thing is, we still have what, about 5 weeks, until there'll be a lot more sales from now until then. 🤣

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@itsfi as soon as i finish justifying the black friday purchases, I have to start thinking of new, creative reasons to justify all the boxing day purchases 😤

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

hmmm 🤔, maybe Boxing Day is the one last shopping hurrah for 2022. I mean, if that’s the case, you have to go out strong, right?!! 😉 🛍️ 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

That’s actually genius though @cianni . 😘 I’m not even that good. I was liked oh let me do some gift shopping. One for me and one for me. And now I’m behind 😘🤣😂
