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.

I messaged you! 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Congratulations, @GG84 ! 💖💖💖  Your puppy is adorable! 🐾

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!


 This was a better photo of her checking out the box (before she held the stuffing captive in her mouth) 🤣

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

She is adorable, @GG84. Thank you for the puppy tax.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@GG84 , Oh, good!  Another puppy photo!  Better to see the adorable one!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@GG84 Aww so cute! What a fun new toy for your pup!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thanks for the extra pic, @GG84 !  The box is bigger than she is! 😄

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

It definitely weighs more then she does 🙃 she tips the scale at 8 lbs 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Oooooooh she's so beautiful! 😍 what's her name? @GG84  She's a fluffy little muffin 💖 Lol that stuffing was a pets dream 🤣  my cat was all over it

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Congrats @GG84 ! I am excited to hear your thoughts !

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@GG84  Aw what a cutie!! She would blend right in in the box! ☺️

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Congratulations, @GG84

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Ahhhhhh!!!!  I opened the front door randomly as one does when they shop too much and there sat a large box!  The extreme joy when I read it was for me and who it was from!!!!  

You were right @TeamBIC @CarolBT  this absolutely blows me away!  I have never felt so eager to hit the gym so I have an excuse to wash my hair!  😝. I LOVE the Moroccanoil Moroccanoil Treatment Hair Oil and already have a bottle going so am thrilled to have another on hand when I get through it!   It’s a long time fav so thank you so much!!  

Everything else is new to me!!  The JVN Complete Blowout Styling Milk 3 oz / 90 mL is especially exciting!!!! I recently fell in love with the JVN Complete Hydrating Air Dry Hair Styling Cream 5 oz/ 147 mL  which magically makes my hair not frizz up as it dries and the JVN Complete Instant Recovery Heat Protectant Leave-In Serum 3.4 oz/ 100 mL  which is a mega dose of hydration for stressed out hair!!!  I use it to hydrate and not even as a heat protectant.  I’ve been badly wanting to try the rest of their products cause my introduction to the brand was so so good!!!  Thanks for helping that mission along!!  
I’ve heard nothing but great things about the K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Molecular Hair Repair Value Set – Full-Size Repair Mask & Free Travel Detox Shampoo  and the k18 brand in general!  I am on a strict NO MORE HAIR MASKS beauty diet so have am very happy you have so generously created a guilt free cheat around that!;);) 

The OUAI Hydrating Scalp Serum for Healthy, Fuller Looking Hair 2 oz / 60 mL looks so interesting!!!  I haven’t seen it before!  It smells great and I love the dropper pump on the lid!  Neat!  To encourage thicker fuller hair… Maybe I need this and didn’t know it!   I’ll take some before shots and give this a whirl!!  I love a good beauty experiment!

The blow dryer is soooo beautifully bright and sunshiney!   it reminds me of how blissfully happy I was at Sephoria in their brand room!  I’m just going to pop it (and these new hair wonders) into my gym bag!  
Thank you again for being mischevious gifting elves/ even if the hints and teasing were torture;) and Merry Christmas!!! 


Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Congrats on the goodies, @heartsmyface!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Congratulations on the hair mask cheat @heartsmyface! No seriously, on this entirely humongous package full of hair love 💗💖💗



Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@eshoe  Thanks!  Such a clever cheat:). I am in LOVE a with the hair serum and have already pushed one of my besties to buy it. it’s really nice!!  

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@heartsmyface awesome!!! Congratulations darlin ❤️

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Congratulations @heartsmyface. That photo is adorable.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Congratulations, @heartsmyface !  It's good to know that you will be enjoying this wonderful Gratis!

Yes, about the Sephora pillow?  Do tell!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@tsavorite   Thank you!  It’s a satin pillowcase!! Super slippy and feels great!  i wish I were more skilled at keeping pillows on the bed.  they tend to get ousted while I’m sleeping.  That few minutes I use it before i fall asleep has got to count for something right?  

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@heartsmyface ,

I was asking about the decorative round Sephora pillow, with black and white stripes and the Crown, that is sitting on your couch.  Sorry that I wasn't clear about that.

I did get excited hear about the silky satin pillowcase and the hair towel that Community Ambassadors received in their Gratis! Congratulations on these!
