BEWARE!!! Mold ON Samples!!

image_02 (3).pngOrdered one of the deluxe boi-oing concealer samples, went to use it today and was faced with this. 

 

 

Anybody else who ordered one if you haven't used it, I would suggest checking it!! I was absolutely horrified when I opened it to use. They really must be struggling for samples if they are sending out old out of date ones. From now on I will check all my samples to make sure they are in date! I contacted CS and I have had them assure me they will find out and let me know whether these are old warehouse samples, this is a one off or if it is a bad batch.

 

It definitely makes me wonder about a lot of the repeat promotions that they offer year in year out. 

RE: BEWARE!!! Mold ON Samples!!

I redeemed one and after seeing this, went to double check. That’s pretty scary

Re: BEWARE!!! Mold ON Samples!!

Hi guys, Upon reviewing the samples, it was determined to be crystallized water, not mold. If anyone redeemed this sample and needs assistance, please send me a PM. 

Thank you! I was hoping to hear back about this. I'm an e...

Thank you! I was hoping to hear back about this. I'm an earth sciences nerd, so I was trying to puzzle that one out, but in terms of clay and mud substrates. 🙂

Did I call it or did I call it? 😎

Re: BEWARE!!! Mold ON Samples!!

Is that mold or is it the product cracking from temperature change/ lack of moisture?  I would expect mold to grow on an even surface and not change the texture of the host, but this appears to have cracking near the unidentified spots.

Re: BEWARE!!! Mold ON Samples!!

Holy cow!  That's insane!  Good catch! Mold + skin is a bad combination...to say the least.

@georgejamesjc that's just gross!!

Re: BEWARE!!! Mold ON Samples!!

Wow, Benefit reeeally needs to get their act together.

Re: BEWARE!!! Mold ON Samples!!

@fieldsofclover No kidding. I’m starting to wonder if I should pitch my Benefit samples. 

Re: BEWARE!!! Mold ON Samples!!

@PinkEvergreen Which? The ones that were recalled, or the ones that haven't been recalled yet? 😜

Re: BEWARE!!! Mold ON Samples!!

@fieldsofclover Lol, the ones that haven’t been recalled yet. I’m afraid that we’ll eventually find out that there were batch issues with those too...

Re: BEWARE!!! Mold ON Samples!!

Sorry to see this! I'll send you a private message to assist you and we will share this feedback with the brand. 

 

Happy Friday,

@annypoo Oh no! I was hoping that this would be a one-off... Darn 😞

Re: RE: Re: BEWARE!!! Mold ON Samples!!

Hi @annypoo

 

Oh no! I'll send you a private message as well.

I know it’s just a sample, but did they replace it for you? Would suck to lose your benefit of shopping through Sephora.
