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.  



Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

My scalp is very sensitive @Ispend2much6 at the moment probably from my fail from earlier this month. I have been using SUNDAY II SUNDAY SOOTHE ME Daily Scalp Serum for Dry Scalp Relief 4 oz/ 120 mL but I have a feeling that it is going to take time to desensitize my scalp. My stylist was careful with the color for my roots touch up.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Loretta55  Thank you for the recommendation!  I definitely need something.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

It took away the itch from my scalp @Ispend2much6. Now I am dealing with the sensitivity issue caused by the blow dryer cap.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Your hair looks pretty, @Ispend2much6! I used the K18 for the first time today and I had to use about 6 pumps.  There's no getting by with 1 or 2 pumps with our type of hair, I think.  I also ended up conditioning on top of it with a rinse out conditioner.  I think it worked to strengthen and calm my hair but I can't let it dry out my bleached and curly hair that much.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@curlychiquita  Sounds like we have the same type of hair.  Thanks!  I'll try my rinse out on top of it next time.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thank you for your review @Ispend2much6 I find for me,  I still need to use a bit of conditioner or a bit of spray in conditioner after my k18 has processed, just a little or it gets too dry before next wash day. My hair is long, fine,but dry and damaged from all the hair dying I put it through 😅

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@CynthieLu  Thank you for the suggestion!  It's good advice, as my hair is very fine also.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Thanks for your review, @Ispend2much6 !  Your hair looks very pretty!  I haven't tried any of these goodies yet (although I've used the Moroccanoil before).  I'll probably try the K18 products tomorrow.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Titian06  Thank you!!  My scalp is itchy today (hope I'm not allergic to my Oribe hair spray,) so maybe it's a good time to try the OUAI Hydrating Scalp Serum for Healthy, Fuller Looking Hair 2 oz / 60 mL .

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Ispend2much6 @Thank you for the review. 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@SportyGirly125  You're welcome.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Love  your thorough review, @Ispend2much6!  Sounds like you got a good end result 🙂

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@CookieGirl1  Thank you, I sure did! 

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Ispend2much6 your hair looks great! thanks for pointing out some ingredients in the K18 mask. i havent used it yet, but have a similar hair type to you (i think the only difference is that mine is not processed on most of it, but the bottom is still bleached)

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@cianni  You're welcome!  To be honest, the alcohol doesn't seem to have dried out my hair, but that's what I'll be watching for as I continue to use it.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Ispend2much6 yes! I agree, my hair was fluffy in the front

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@lmaster  So which product do you think made the difference?

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@Ispend2much6 idk I had only used the blow-dryer with products I already had, so I think it's just the dryer itself?

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

@lmaster  Wow!  I'll have to try my regular products next time.

Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Woo hoo, mine finally was delivered, hallelujah!


Thank you so much, @TeamBIC! ❤️




I'm excited to have such a fantastic new hair dryer! I never straighten my hair, but I do use it sometimes to diffuse my curls.  


I already know I love the Moroccanoil Moroccanoil Treatment Hair Oil because I've purchased it on and off multiple times.  I'm looking forward to trying the JVN Complete Blowout Styling Milk 3 oz / 90 mL as a leave in.


I've never used the K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 mL , but I just got two delivered from the LovelySkin black Friday sale, so I obviously was looking forward to it. 😁 Now I have a little family. I'm looking forward to using it tomorrow morning.




I'm interested in the OUAI Hydrating Scalp Serum for Healthy, Fuller Looking Hair 2 oz / 60 mL .  My favorite scalp serum is currently the The Ordinary Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density 2 oz/ 60 mL . I also own the #Kérastase Initialiste Strengthening & Volumizing Advanced Scalp & Hair Serum 2.2 oz/ 60 mL but it turns out I don't like it as much as The Ordinary's, so I'm using up the Kerastase on my hair.  I'm almost afraid to try replacing The Ordinary with something else, but I'll give it a go! 




Re: Sephora Holiday Gratis 2022!!!

Wow, that must have been a gooood sale, having the serum for months and months. Congrats!😍 @curlychiquita
