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.

Thank you very much @Mellmars1185.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

I'm so glad your scalp was not hurt by the dryer and you can enjoy the dryer @Loretta55 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thank you very much @Buootiful.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Loretta55  Oh ouch sorry to hear that!!  Good to hear the blow dryer is gentle enough on your scalp. 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thank you very much @heartsmyface. The dryer is gentle on my scalp.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thanks for the review, @Loretta55! I still need to get the diffuser. I'm sorry your scalp is so sensitive still. 😞

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thank you very much @curlychiquita. The diffuser works beautifully with the blow dryer. I tried the Bio Ionic Universal Diffuser but it didn’t fit quite right.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

I am so sorry to hear about your scalp, @Loretta55. Thank goodness the dryer did not cause any additional irritation. It does seem to run cool, which is nice.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thank you very much @eshoe. It is a relief that the dryer runs cool.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

That's really good news the diffuser is not irritating your scalp injury ❤ I hope all the painful scalp issues are behind you now 💐 @Loretta55 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Hopefully my scalp issues will resolve quickly @CynthieLu. It is annoying.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thank you for your feedback @Loretta55 ! I am planing on using JVN Complete Blowout Styling Milk 3 oz / 90 mL as first step (mainly as protection from the heat) and use a styling cream or gel on top to enhance curls. I think that’s how @lmaster did (correct me if I am wrong, please) and she was very happy with the result. 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Saradestin yes that's exactly how I used it

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

I am experimenting at the moment with product application @Saradestin. Hopefully my next wash day will provide good results.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Congrats to everyone on the amazing gratis! Such awesome products to try! I know some of them are already holy grails for many on BIC! Perfect way to end the year! 💛🎉

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Congrats to you too sweet @makeitup305 ! 🥰🎉

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thank you, @makeitup305 !

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thank you so much @makeitup305 💖 it is an amazing way to end the year 😄

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thank you so much, sweet @makeitup305 ! 🤗

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

How could I put this into words @TeamBIC ? They all will fall short! I have no way to express the level of gratitude and happiness I feel! You really blew me away! Wow!

I am very lazy taking care of my thirsty hair, which is crying for some love and attention, so all these amazing products are received with so much joy! I am sure I will love everything. 

I am adding Drybar The Bouncer Diffuser, which is on its way, to be able to use this luxurious Drybar Baby Buttercup Blow-Dryer on my curly hair (I don’t know how to blow dry my hair)

I am anxious to try all these amazing products and share my thoughts.
