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!

The App is useless for looking at Community.  I use the browser.  It’s a shame that the App doesn’t function well @sister13 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@sister13 are you trying with the app or on PC?  EVERYTHING gets screwed up when I use the app to try and do anything Community-related.

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@CookieGirl1 I’ve deleted the app altogether from iPad and iPhone, it’s a disaster for me, so I just access via browser. I have previously tried to upload to the gallery from iPad, iPhone, app and PC, and from what I gather, it impacts some users but not others. I know there are several of us from the old BT who are impacted. I think I tried the gallery again recently from PC and iPad. I was hopeful but no go. 😢😢

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@sister13 I use the app for looking at product info only but I've given up using it for the Community.

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Cute @TeamBIC , folks will have fun with this! 🥰

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Ok, this is really cute.  It's basically Pokemon, but make it about beauty 😍 @TeamBIC 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC - Great!  Another stress inducing competition that should knock my already low self-esteem down a notch.  Receiving hearts for my posts still means more to me.

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Oh no!  Love you and you are awesome no matter what the badges may say @Titian06 !!! 🤩🤩💗💗

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

This looks fun, @TeamBIC! Thank you for thinking of it!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

This looks very fun @TeamBIC ! Thank you for sharing ! Can't wait to see all the exciting badges!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Oooh, thanks for the heads up! Wow, this looks like it took some time and effort to put together @TeamBIC! Thank you for everything you do to make this place as special as it is. By the look of that screenshot, it seems like there will be quite a few badges. Excited to see what they'll look like. Will be keeping an eye out for when this new feature rolls out! 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC thank you for the update!  This sounds like a fun addition to the Community.

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC  What a great idea to get more engagement! And the collector in some of us will try for all the badges. Can’t wait to see everyone’s badges 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC  This is so much fun!! I’m very competitive so now I need to make sure I earn all the badges!!! 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC This is a fun idea. I definitely like collecting!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

I love it @TeamBIC ! I can’t wait to see everyone’s badges!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC such a cute and fun new feature! I'm looking forward to seeing what Badges everyone gets!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC What a fun, new initiative! When I first read the line about logging in once, twice, and twenty-five times, I thought it meant per day. And I was thinking, hey, I used to log in probably 25x per day back in my undergrad when I was waiting for classes to start or had down-time between lectures 😅 haha good times!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

LOL aww @Guessgal 😂 You definitely have that Community Connoisseur badge in the bag! 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC good idea!  Looking forward to it!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Ooooh @TeamBIC what a fun new way to share some BIC love! More sparkles and shine for everyone 🙌🏼
