Thank you so so much, @TeamBIC ๐Ÿ˜˜ for this fantastic summer Gratis! It has not been a good summer for me since my husband had to be admitted to the hospital. He has since been recuperating for a few months and his health scare has shocked us both. I am extremely relieved his health is improving and I'm slowly feeling like myself. It was such a shock that I have not been able to get interested in makeup or even go shopping. Seeing the huge Winky girl box sparked some excitement for makeup again!

Thank you Tom Ford, Makeup by Mario, @SoldeJaneiro  @Ouai and Fresh for these Summer gifts!! I had a lovely summer Sunday planned with @Guessgal and couldn't wait to dive into the TOM FORD Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil ! I was a little unsure how I would like it because I did not like this perfume. From what I remembered, the top layer had a light fresh scent that "soured" when dried down so I thought Mugler's Alien Goddess would be a good replacement. I sprayed a lot of Goddess on my skin so it would overpower the Tom Ford scent. I applied the oil 3 times to my upper arms and shoulders and luckily didn't feel too oily. I was disappointed I didn't see any sparkles indoors but happy the scent was very light. It reminded me of putting suntan lotion while at the beach. I have had a bad habit this year of not putting on sunscreen and I imagine if I did, it would enhance this beachy scent. Hours later and sweaty strolling through a Farmer's market, I could see the sparkles. I'm glad it didn't vanish with the sweat. Even @Guessgal noticed the sparkles in the sun and I felt like a glowing, warm-toned Twilight vampire, lol! ๐ŸคฃThe not-so-chunky flecks were a very pretty warm gold on my medium skin.

As usual, LA traffic had me anxious to meet Guessgal but wanted to put some makeup on so I pulled out the MAKEUP BY MARIO SoftSculptยฎ Transforming Skin Enhancer in Medium as a wash of color on my eyes with mascara. I didn't have time to prime my eyes so I applied it onto my lids with my fingers, then set it with powder. It was a nice brown on me, but I didn't have high hopes for it to last long on my oily eyes. It didn't crease a lot. At least, not as bad as I thought it would be. I can't wait to try it as a bronzer or as a contour effect!

I look forward to using Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Body Cream on my dry legs, OUAI Wave Spray 4.9 fl oz/ 145 mL for my frizzy, tangled hair and, fresh Sugar Lip Polish Exfoliator  on my lips. ๐Ÿ˜

 

All the summer swag that came with the beauty products were amazing! I would love to use the BIC floaty because it looks too fun to not use, but the apartment swimming pool is busy every day. This thing looks huge and would fill up 25% of the pool, lol! It was also thoughtful of Team BIC to include a vacuum pump, and I think I will blow it up to use inside my apartment ๐Ÿ™‚ . Heart-shaped sunglasses are always stylish and I love how cute and functional the Tote bag is. I love a good tote bag with a zipper. Zippers make any tote bag sooo much better! The beach towel is perfect for the beach and I love thin towels for after showering too.

I'm truly grateful for these fantastic summer treats-it lifted my spirits! It's the simple things that do wonders to lighten a mood and make you feel better. Thank you so much for curating BIC favorite products for the forum! And, thank you for reaching out to me when my husband was in the hospital @CarolBT @AlexBT @GeorginaBT  @LexBT @danielledanielle @SportyGirly125 ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—

Awww, thanks so much for your positive vibes! @lmaster Truly, just being in the hospital room with him helped keep his spirits up. It's scary but it helped him so much. Haha, feeling more like myself that I placed several orders this month. Most were still what I ran out of, but it felt good!

I am so happy to know that your husband is recovering from his health issue @Buootiful.

@Buootiful,

 

I'm glad you got some summertime goodness, in spite of all your trials.  There's still some summer left, hope it (and the rest of the year) goes a little better.  Best of recovery to you both.

 

Also, hey hey, ambassador mini meet!

Re: ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ–๐ŸŽ The 2022 Summer Treat Gratis Thread - Thank you TeamBIC, fresh, Makeup By Mario, Ouai, Sol de Janeiro, Tom Ford and Sephora! ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ–?

I realize that I am late on providing my reviews of these awesome items that @TeamBIC gifted to me. I definitely found a new HG favorite amongst the group.

MAKEUP BY MARIO SoftSculptยฎ Transforming Skin Enhancer has been a true game changer in my makeup routine. This has to be the most natural bronzer/contour that I have ever used. I have received multiple compliments from my coworkers on this magical product. It also inspired me to purchase the MAKEUP BY MARIO SoftSculptยฎ Transforming Skin Perfector . This combination can be worn together without foundation and I have the most natural glowy complexion.

fresh Sugar Lip Polish Exfoliator has been a wonderful product that does an excellent job of exfoliating my dry lips. It has a wonderful scent. Their body exfoliant is also wonderful. I have used this product for quite a few years.

OUAI Wave Spray 4.9 fl oz/ 145 mL is also an HG product for me. I use it to refresh my curls /waves. I have purchased this product multiple times.

TOM FORD Soleil Blanc was not a personal favorite but at least the scent was not too strong. Sorry I am not a fan of body glitter.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Body Cream also is not a favorite body cream of mine. I passed this along to a coworker who always uses it. She was very excited to receive it.

The tote bag is a favorite of mine. I have been using it on my shopping trips now that stores no longer provide bags. I will be passing along the sunnies because I use prescription glasses.
