Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

Lots of places are doing their "year in review" (usually with music, but I've seen some others too!), so I thought it would be fun if we did a BIC Beauty Wrapped 😊 

 

I personally draw a lot of inspiration (and sometimes enabling) from the Community, and would love to see everyone's beauty wrapped! I've come up with a few categories, but feel free to add and skip over ones that don't apply to you!

 

BIC WRAPPED 2023 CATEGORIES:

 

  • Your Top 3 Brands This Year (this can be divided into categories, like skincare, makeup, haircare and fragrance, or you can do an overall ranking!)
  • Top 3 Most Used Product Types (mascara, fragrance, liquid blush, hair masks, etc)
  • Top 3 Most Used Products
  • Top 3 Most Repurchased Items
  • Top "BIC Made Me Do It" Product
  • Number of Empties (if you track that sort of thing!)
  • Top New Product of 2023
  • Top 3 Beauty Trends You Participated In
  • Top Re-Entry Product (something you maybe haven't used in a while, but has been rediscovered and re-added to your rotation!)

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

Yeah @CorgiMommy, over the past couple of years I’ve changed my approach to picking up samples and have found it works out well for me both in terms of getting better use out of them and having a much more manageable stash. I’m going to make a couple more adjustments this year and will see how that works out.  🤞🏼 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@CorgiMommy, it was a bunch of foils and half used deluxe samples that had piled up. Every year I aim for less empties, which is probably not the norm, but as I see it for my stash, the lower the number, the more likely the vast majority of my empties are full size products. I'd be happy with that.

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@itsfi  Wow look at this list!! Impressive!! How did you narrow it down??? I’m glad you still love the SF sunscreen! Still a fav of mine especially because it doesn’t run into my eyes! 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@ather, I was in jury duty for a week, with no laptop, phone, book allowed so when there were breaks, I would check my work emails and think about how fill these categories. Hahaha! I looked though my photos for hauls, empties, foils and favorites as well, as a way to quickly look back at the year. 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@itsfi  That’s such a great idea! I might do that when I am stuck in an airport or plane all day tomorrow!!! 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

Yes @ather! It’ll be a looooong flight for you. Do you have long layovers? Since I’ve been traveling more, I’ve tried to find different ways to fill the time - sometimes it’s leisure stuff like reading a book; other times, it’s work. Other times, I’ll get in a little BIC or there are times when I’ll journal, or when I just don’t do anything at all. 

Hope you have had a fabulous trip! Sending you well wishes for a good, smooth & safe flight, ✈️ 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@itsfi  the flight is about 5 hours long and we have to be there 3 hours before so it’s a long day especially with a kid! The flight there I downloaded a bunch of movies and watched them but there’s only so many movies to watch! I’ll try and read a bit and entertain Felix! The way there we didn’t all sit together but on the way back we are all in a row! So I will have lots of help! I also need to remember to pack my jet leg mask to apply in flight! 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

Glad you will all be able to sit together @ather! Ooh, masking on a plane - yes!! 🙌🏼 Your skin will love you for it! Are you ready to be home? Or would a few more days there be okay with you?

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@itsfi  I’m so ready to go home! I thought I would prefer to stay 10 days but I think 7 is perfect! 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@itsfi I'm going to have to look that Summer Friday's up. I've been thinking and looking at my skin lately. Foundations and I don't get along and yet my skin is showing pretty bad sun damage so I need to start looking into a tinted sunscreen.

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@Samtian, the Tower 28 is a tinted sunscreen; or is marketed as such - I feel like it gives me more coverage than a traditional tinted moisturizer. The Summer Fridays is a great sunscreen, not tinted though. 

What are the major issues you are finding with you and foundations not getting along? Do you think using a SPF and concealer would give you the coverage and sun protection you need?

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@itsfi Foundation looks so weird. Most of the time cakey, or gets oily fast.  That sounds like too much work for my laziness lol. After I commented earlier I pulled them both up and ended up adding a bunch of things to my wishlist to try to remember lol.

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@cianni Thanks for this post

 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@CorgiMommy I love Tatcha and Biossance as well. The Biossance moisturizer is one of my faves.

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@makeitup305 it is my new favorite body lotion

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@CorgiMommy Nothing like seeing those perfume samples go down!

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@Samtian thanks, they seem to multiply 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@CorgiMommyworking through fragrance samples is huge! Lots of great faves here - I recently picked up the #Supergoop! Glowscreen SPF 40 PA+++ 1.7 oz/ 50 mL for myself, have you tried that product? 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@cianni thanks, I haven't purchased a fragrance all year as I have a huge bag of samples to use up (there are many duplicates)

 

No I haven't tried that product.  Let me know what you think of it.
