Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hello beautiful Beauty Insider Community members! Welcome to your new Community. Smiley Happy 


It’s an exciting day! We’re starting this thread for you guys to report any issues and weird things that you are seeing or ask any questions. We have a number of issues logged that we are already working on a fix for, so this is a work in process.(Beta!)


Some things to note as you are reporting issues:

  • If you are looking for a thread and can’t find it, please post here. We’ll need to manually move some threads that got lost in the migration to their correct groups.
  • If you are reporting a bug please be specific about the issue you're seeing, how you got there (“I clicked here and it did *this*”), the device you're using and which browser you're in. 


Some tips:

  • If you are looking for a thread that you commented on in the old community, go to the front page of conversations and click the “My Posts” tab. This is where you will find all of your conversations activity, including your heart count.


It’s good to see you all and thanks for being patient!



We hear you on the sign on issue. We reported this bug weeks ago and haven't reached a solution so we're still investigating with our tech teams. 


For now, we want to collect as much information as possible to identify why this is happening so please follow these steps. 


  1. Clear your cookies and try to sign in
  2.  If you're still unable to sign in after clearing your cookies note your browser where you are experiencing issues
  3. Switch to a different browser / device (desktop, mobile web on tablet or phone, Sephora App)
  4. Please test different sign on methods and let us know your experience in detail
  5. Screenshot any errors
  6. If you cannot login on any browser, device and the app isn't working either we don't want to miss your feedback so please email your feedback to email and include your username
  7. If you can take a video of the experience the team says it would be extremely helpful. If you're willing to take the time please email that to and let us know your username 


Whenever reporting a bug we need as much info as possible or our tech team cannot reproduce the issue and verify it's actually occurring. If they can't see the issue they cannot fix it. You cannot overshare details, test on too many devices or share too many screenshots... The more detail the better!

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@KatieBT  I know I’ve reported this before, but it’s happening again: I can’t reach my profile page. Whether I navigate to that page from A BIC page or a Sephora page, I get this sequence of unfortunate events. These screenshots are via iPhone with Safari. 

59BFB590-84BB-4156-B932-AEBAB71FF37F.pngProfile page tries to load; maybe Sephora’s trying to pop the app from here?

82E177DD-E6EB-4FAF-BA47-7C3E2E9A05E3.pngNo bleep, Safari. Smiley Sad



This began last night, immediately after I saved some profile changes (new photo and I think a skin concern) vis iPad with Safari. I tapped save and was thrown into the above sequence. Apparently my changes stuck—I see my updated photo here—but now I’m error-locked out of my entire profile. I dumped all Sephora and BIC/Lithium cookies from iPad Safari, closed and relaunched the browser, and still have this problem. I haven’t tried via a different browser or my laptop yet. 


I guess I could also try the app, assuming profiles are available there. But I’d rather not have to launch the app. Last time this happened, it magically “fixed” itself several weeks (months, maybe) later across all devices, making me believe that is a Sephora system problem, not an end user problem. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

UPDATE: I’m using Firefox via iPad (iOS 12) right now. From BIC Conversations page, I navigated to Profile. In Firefox, that link pops the Sephora app. 😡 So I guess that’s what’s causing this profile lockout problem: Safari won’t launch the app, probably due to the way I have it set—because I DON’T WANT TO USE THE APP, at least not while I’m on BIC and trying to do something as simple as update my profile. 


This further encourages me to delete the app from all my devices. I’m even more frustrated by this problem now. I hate being forced to launch the app. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

I noticed at the top of the page in the community, it still mentions 3 samples with any purchase.



Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@KatieBT @TeamBIC 


I think I've found the weirdest error ever. At some point in the last hour or so, I have been "BANNED" from BIC...

but only when I try to access via my phone. Desktop is fine (and is of course where I'm posting this from (full site/Chrome/Win7))


Mobile site/Chrome/Android, even after a cookie dump, this is all I get when I try to log into BIC via phone. The shopping side of the mobile site seems fine for me, but I can't access the Community AT ALL.


Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hi @RGbrown ,


I am so sorry for the trouble! This looks like an error and it should now be resolved. Please log out and log back in, and send me a private message if any further assistance is needed. Thank you!


Warm regards,


Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback


Ah, lightning quick! You have my eternal gratitude! 💕

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@KatieBT strangely enough, even if I'm "mentioned" by someone else, I'm not getting any email notifications about it today like I normally do.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

I'm not receiving notifications or emails when I'm tagged either. I just recieved one notification about being tagged in a post an hour ago, but nothing else. @CookieGirl1 Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@KatieBT I’ve noticed when I’m looking through my groups page from my iPhone that the Rouge and VIB  boards have disappeared. As far as I know I’m still Rouge. Any chance you know why this is happening. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@divaknits @KatieBT Not the same thing, but sometimes people will show as "insiders" on the BIC platform from the main thread, but then will display as "rouge" "VIB" if I actually enter the thread. Could be related?

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@KatieBT I am also having this problem, but only on desktop version- it still works for me in the app

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@KatieBT I'm having the same problem for about a week now, can only see the first few items of my list, and when I add new items it erases the old ones, whether I use Chrome or Safari on desktop or on iPhone.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@byme4u  @KatieBT  Same here: I can’t see my full list of Loves or Purchases. Looks like both “view all” links point to what I assume are the right URLS ( and But when I tap either link, I’m redirected back to the Lists page. Tried with my iPad and iOS Safari. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

I'm having the same problem.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@KatieBT - I still am not receiving e-mail notifications when posts are made to threads I am subscribed to.  This has been going on for at least six months.  I do receive tags when someone mentions me or replies to a post I make.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@KatieBT Oddly I can now not reply to anything without my browser (Safari) opening up the Sephora App and kicking me off the post. I had to delete the Sephora App so I could post this. @WinglessOne you mentioned that you used Safari also, is the common theme Safari? 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Came here to post about this as well! I really dislike that “REPLY” sends me to the Sephora app. I’m assuming that this is Sephora’s attempt to get more people to use the Community part via the app, but I much prefer the browser. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

I see some things don't change! 😂 😂
