Introducing Community Badges!



We’re always looking for more ways to recognize you all, our fun and fabulous members, and we have something new we’re bursting to share! Starting this month, we will be rolling out another opportunity for you to show off all your contributions to the BIC: badges.


Keep reading to find out more about these new additions to your Community profile, FAQ-style!



What is a badge and how do I earn one?

A badge is a visual representation of your activity in the Beauty Insider Community – and each one is totally unique! For example, you might earn a badge for starting a conversation in the Forum or receiving hearts on one of your Forum posts.



How many badges can I earn?

In March 2023, we’re debuting our first round of badges, featuring these ones which members can earn by signing into Community once, twice, and twenty-five times respectively:

  1. Welcome
  2. Welcome Back
  3. Community Connoisseur


If you’ve already logged into Community more than twenty-five times, you may find that you’ll earn all three of these badges right off the bat. 🥳 Yay you!


For the next few months, we’ll be rolling out even more badges to showcase actions that members have taken around the Forum. Eventually, you’ll also be able to earn badges for your participation in other Community platforms too, such as Ratings & Reviews, Questions & Answers, and the Gallery. No matter how you like to engage in the BIC, there will be a badge for you. 🤩 Stay tuned for all of the colorful badges we have in store – we’re sure you’ll want to collect them all!



Where can I see all the badges I’ve earned?

The brand new “My Badges” page is your go-to destination to view all the badges you’ve earned in the Beauty Insider Community. You can visit the My Badges page by signing in and clicking the right arrow in the Badges module on the Community Home page, as seen here:





Alternatively, you can get to My Badges or another member’s Badges page by clicking into the number of badges they’ve earned on their Conversations Activity page within the Community profile:






PRO TIP: When visiting your own My Badges page, you might notice some badges appear slightly faded – that means that you haven’t earned those yet (although we’re sure you’re well on your way! 😉). Just like all of your earned badges on the Badges page, you can click on these to read their descriptions and find out exactly how to get them in the future.



Are badges related to my Beauty Insider Loyalty status?

Nope! Your Beauty Insider tier has no impact on the number of badges you have in the Beauty Insider Community, or vice versa. You could be an Insider with ten badges, or a Rouge with five badges – just as an example. 😊



Are badges the same as Community ranks?

Nope! Like ranks (which you can read about here: Demystifying the Community Rank System, badges are earned based on your Community contributions. That said, Community members collect badges as they move up the ranks.


While we can’t give away too much of our secret sauce, it’d be safe to assume that members who earn most of the badges available to them will likely also be of a higher Community rank – after all, they’re some of the most active in the BIC! 🙏



We hope you’re just as excited about this new Community feature as we are. 😋 Stay tuned for more badges to come – we can’t wait for you to collect them all!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

It all makes sense that these are real people with real opinions and they get appreciated

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

I think this is great. I enjoy reading advice by members and learning about new things to try. I like the help with certain questions I may have about using and applying products correctly.

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@Christyrose567 it's nice that we can all help each other 🙂

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

I like being part of a beauty community.  My purpose is to help others see and recognize the beauty within them.  When people feel good about themselves, they treat others with kindnessd.

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Sounds cool!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Is this what I keep getting emails about today? Just realized I have a lot of these badges!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

LOL! I was wondering why I got like 6 badges today

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

yes! @txcatx You probably "earned" the latest release of badges all at once because you are an OG! 😍 Check out your badges page - I'm sure it's beautiful and colorful! 💗

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@CarolBT @I was just going to say I love how colorful the badges look. 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Love this! 🤗

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Looking forward to being a part of this community!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Ooh how fun! This should be interesting. 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

I’m so late but YAY!!! 😩☺️

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC  Sounds like fun! But I’m still trudging to see my batch from the web mobile page. (I received a message that I earn the conversation starter badge, but I don’t see any) 😞

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Hi there @riiko! 😊 So sorry you're having trouble viewing your badges! Any chance this link works for you? From my end, it looks like you've already earned 5 badges (yes, including the Conversation Starter badge!): 🎉

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Wow! Thank you for finding the badges! I’m still struggling to find how to go on to the page without clicking the link 😂  I’m definitely going to save the link 😆 Thank you love🧡

I hope you have a fabulous day😘
