Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hello beautiful Beauty Insider Community members! 


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.


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!


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

Actually, an update, I can NOT  log directly in to  the Community on iPhone or iPad. I have to go to which auto logs me in, then log out, log back in, then navigate to Community. 

However, once I do that process, I can go between BIC and shopping ( without getting kicked back out of BIC.


If I just try to go to BIC from, I continue to get that Oops error message. @TeamBIC 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@sister13 this is the error I have on PC as well.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT - I cleared my cache then clicked on a link in an email notification and automatically logged me in BIC and took me to the message.  This is the first time since sometime last year.  I exited BIC and Chrome and went back into email to try and it worked again.


Android, Samsung Tab A10, Chrome

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT - This morning, I had to clear my cache again before I could access BIC by clicking on a link in an email notification. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hi all! Understood that the issue isn't totally resolved yet - thanks for weighing in! We'll continue working with our tech partners to troubleshoot. Thanks all again for your patience here, I know this is a frustrating bug.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT  Thanks for your diligence in this issue.  I can still get in and I’m use to clearing my cashe every time! It’s not horrible since I can still log in! 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Thank you for keeping us up to date on all the fixes. @GeorginaBT 🙏 

Since the update my regular chrome browser on my Google Pixel phone is working again, hurray! 🥳

Before I could only log in on incognito mode.


Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT I really appreciate all your updates!  I'd post more if I were able to get in more effortlessly.   I think others feel this way, because it seems like the boards have been more quiet these past many months. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT Thank you for the update 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Using iPad, I can only get in if I clear cache every time and go in incognito @GeorginaBT . This is still true as of Thursday and today. I did have issues Thur. but I will try again today. It does not let me stay signed in ever. This has been all of 2024 and part of later months 2023 . Thank you for continuing to work on this for us all! 💞

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT I haven't cleared out anything but I am having more difficulty.  I used to get on via Rakuten but I'm having issues recently.   Now, I have to go incognito then to the Sephora homepage and then to BIC.  I feel like it's been difficult pretty much all of 2024.  Discouraging.

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

I’ll try some things and report back! @GeorginaBT 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT  I’m still getting the error. The only way I can get on is if I clear my cashe every time I log in. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback


It logged me in automatically earlier today (around 1pm central iirc) and I was excited it might be fixed, but just now, I got stuck in the dreaded loop, eventually resolving at an error page. 


Mobile site, Android, chrome browser. Will try again late tonight after I get off work and update this if I have different results. 


ETA: 1135pm central, got the eternal loop again, so I moved over to and logged in again from there   😕



Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT  Just tested via Safari on my iPad. First I logged out of BIC, then went to .com homepage and logged out of my Sephora account. Cleared Safari cache/history, closed and relaunched Safari, visited .com homepage and logged in. Went to BIC (used Community dropdown menu in top nav to visit BIC homepage) to make sure I was also logged in there (I was; no need to log in a second time). 


From BIC, I visited my BI Summary page and then checked my recent points activity. Where I used to have problems was trying to get back into BIC from any .com page. But today, I went from my BI Summary page to BIC homepage and was still logged in to BIC, hooray! 


I’ll try via Chrome later. Meanwhile, things look good via Safari. 👍 Thanks to you and the tech team for the update(s)! 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@GeorginaBT It has been the same for me. Although I didn’t have as many issues as others. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Awesome news! @GeorginaBT 

@heartsmyface I know you've been really effected by the sign in issues, I hope this helps 🙏

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC lately I feel like some members are bots. For instance sydneylof23 asking the same questions over and over again. I had to mark them as spam. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

Hi @SportyGirly125 - thanks for looking out and reporting this content as you see it. We'll have the moderator team keep an extra close eye out for possible spam-like activity. 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC Thank you 

Re: Beauty Insider Community Feedback

@TeamBIC  with all the login issues, one advantage of the app I realized is that I can see past reviews ( maybe it’s the last 30 days or so?) 


Anyway, I have been trying to be more diligent about leaving reviews but I realized that my reviews don’t seem to show up as verified purchase or non-incentivized. Do you know why that is, and can it be fixed? 

A couple recent items are the OUAI St. Barts Hair and Body Mist 3.3 oz / 97 ml 

Ellis Brooklyn MIAMI NECTAR Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz / 50 ml eau de parfum spray  and many other things I bought myself. 

Alternatively, incentivized do show as incentivized. I appreciate your insight, thanks!
