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.

Whoa, that’s some gorgeous volume @Mellmars1185! 😍 Great way to start the week, with some self care! 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@itsfi Thank you! 😊

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Mellmars1185 Beautiful results!  These are all such fantastic products 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Mel231Thanks so much Mel

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Your hair is beautiful @Mellmars1185. If you want your curls to pop you should purchase Drybar The Bouncer Diffuser . You should watch videos on you tube from Manes by Mel or Swavy Curly Courtney, just a couple of suggestions.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Loretta55 Thank you. I guess practice makea perfect! I will start watching some videos to get an idea of how it works. I wonder how long it takes. When i blow dry my hair it takes about 45 min




Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

I booked a blow dry appointment last time I colored my hair @Mellmars1185. I did pick up a few pointers and I am hoping that my hair will look even better. It takes me about 20 minutes to blow dry my hair. Practice does make perfect. 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Loretta55 Over the years I have picked up tips and always open to learning. If I can cut down my blow dry time from 45 min to 20 min that would be amazing.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Your hair turned out beautifully, @Mellmars1185!

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@curlychiquita Thank you! One of my hair goals is to learn how to diffuse my natural curls.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!



That is a beautiful blowout! 🌠

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@CynthieLu Thanks! I finally got to tey out the #JVN Embody Volumizing Hair Foam 6.7 oz / 200 mL . I dont notice much a difference. I only used one pump at the roots. I am hoping that my bloe oht lasts longer. Next time, I will try 2 pumps.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Lol fine hair problems, 1 pump is my max or it's crazy! Lol @Mellmars1185 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@CynthieLu I understand! I have been told by my hairdresser that I have a lot of fine hair. Since my scalp gets oily it seems to wear my hair down so quickly. I get discouraged from blow drying my hair because the next day it looks very stringy.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

That's what I love about the JVN hair milk @Mellmars1185 everything looks nice for days!

Wow, no way! It looks so thick and volumous 🤩 I would have never guessed girl! The mouse for me,  added lift and my roots that I don't have at all naturally and it lasted for days too but finding the right amount was tricky for me

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Your hair looks fabulous, @Mellmars1185 ! 🤩

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Titian06 Thank you so much! I have curly hair usually. I embrace it more now than I used to. I love how I feel after a fresh blow out.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Quick mini review of the Moroccanoil Moroccanoil Treatment Hair Oil from a couple days ago: 


I have really been loving the Moroccan Oil, which I received free to try from Sephora Beauty Insider Community. My favorite way to use it is to apply to lengths and ends to smooth and tame frizz and flyaways. It has an amazing, tropical scent (when first applied, it doesn’t stay scented for long). In the pics I attached below, you can see the results when I took a before and after when my hair was feeling a bit frizzy. A little goes a long way and too much will definitely make hair greasy, so I used only a pump and a half. The result was smooth and shiny hair without being greasy.


 Thanks again @TeamBIC and Morrocanoil!! I have also tried the JVN Complete Blowout Styling Milk 3 oz / 90 mL with very good results too, and will post a detailed review soon!
