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 thΓ© 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 tartsπŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯§

Also, I heard someone say today they finished their holiday shopping.  Show of hands, who’s finished or, ahem… started their holiday shopping?  πŸ˜†βœ‹πŸ» I started and am nowhere near finished status; as collected and organized as that would be.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@CynthieLu  Congratulations!! Oooo I’ve been dying to try the K18! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on everything! 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

I love k18 @ather My hair is colour treated and a little damaged πŸ˜… I rotate between regular washing,  olaplex and k18 depending on my hair needs, but they've been rescuing my tresses since May. 

I haven't tried thier shampoo line and I have been dying to,  so when I saw it in the box I was like **Yeahy!🀩**  You can't use just any shampoo with k18. Nothing with silicone or anything that might block the product from absorbing well into the hair shaft, I'm very excited to try them both out togeather! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@CynthieLu  Oh that’s so good to hear I didn’t know about that. I need to research K18 more. 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@ather My routine is like this,

I wash, than i just lightly towel my hair so it's not dripping, apply 4 pumps of k18 ( my hair is long and fine and that amount seems to work for me) and wait 4 minutes for it to process.

Usually I do a spray in conditioner next, k18 is enough for some people  but my hair is dry and still wants some extra moisture. Than I use my Olaplex no 9 followed by No.6 and i'm good to go. 

You can use conditioner after k18 sits for its 4 minute process time, rinse and everything.  sometimes I do that, just depends on how I feel. 

It took me a few tries to find my balance, how much to use and what to use with it.  Long dry fine hair is tricky 🀣

But I'm going to change it up a bit now  becuase I have these new lovely hair treatments to try and experiment with 😍


Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

I'm going to use that joke @CynthieLu !  Congratulations!!!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@CynthieLu   Oh wow!!!!   This is incredible!!   It quite literally β€˜blows’ away!’   πŸ₯Ή

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

They definitely did. 100 percent mission success πŸ™Œ  I think were all knocked off our feet by the generosity and awesomeness of this package πŸ’› πŸ˜€ πŸ’–

 So its pretty safe to say my next hair wash day will be epic and exciting @heartsmyface 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!
