A Smidge Traumatized at the Moment...

Mwar Mwar
I got an order today containing Bloom (Yay!) and also a Cake body scrub, among other odds and ends...

I went to open the package. I start taking things out. I notice a little caterpillar/larval type bug on the ground near me. I am a good person and throw it outside and go to continue unpacking.

I go to sit back down (our bed's on the floor) and there's another one! Now I'm paranoid when I try and pull back the brown paper in the box.

And there was a WHOLE DAMN BUNCH OF THEM IN THE BOX! Around my stuff. Around 7 or so, not counting the 2 I found outside, which I must have rustled out of the box. I had the box on my bed. And there's some little pieces of unknown crap that was on my bed that I'm now washing the sheets.

Ack! I'm guessing it had something to do with the sugar scrub. It spilled a bit out of it's package. The jar was closed and the jar was in a plastic bag, but there was grease/residues in the bag, along with a couple of granules. And it did smell very, very sweet. I'm guessing it attracted the bugs, and now I'm looking around my carpet for any other little crawlies inside.

Has something like this ever happened to you? I'm a bit traumatized.

Wow holy crap I would probably react the same way that is so weird!

I got the Brown Sugar cake scrub awhile back, it also leaked slightly and there was an oily residue but no bugs thankfully. Sorry you had to go through that

I've never had that happened, but I don't have far to go with my orders. I've passed this along to our Customer Service manager and he's going to check into it for us. Still sucks though, I'd totally freak if I had bugs in my box (cardboard or otherwise )

That's good to know!

Yeah, it's going to take me a little time to be objective enough for the Cake review. I know it wasn't the product's fault and this happened more from chance (and what luck I have) but yeah... bugs...

Thanks!

@ PetiteValentine: I ran it to the dumpster after throwing it in a bag. But I'd be lying if I didn't think of fire.

It was a box of NOPE!

Mwar, I'm so sorry, this is unacceptable
I'm going to check the warehouse and the specific location where your product was stocked for bugs and report back.
I don't think the bugs are coming from us. We've never had bugs, especially in the warehouse, but like I said, I will check to make sure and let you know!
If you would like to return the items, please get in touch with customer service, I alerted them of your situation.

Yikes that's scary! I hate bugs! I've never had that happen to me, so hopefully it was just a crazy fluke.

Thanks so much!

I would have taken you up on that offer, but my guy took care of things while I was at work. He washed our Eden towel, sterilized the glass toy, and unwrapped the plastic packaging of Bloom for me. Everything is now clean and we tossed the box, so the source is gone.

But thank you! I appreciate it!

No, nothing like this has ever happend to me. How long was the box waiting there for you to open it? ... or had it just arrived?

Oh my goodness, I'd have been traumatized too. Then curious because I love bugs. I'd probably try to identify them.

Ick! Yeah, I've opened a box that books in it to find silverfish and other creepy crawlies, and this was a new box of things I'd ordered. Ugh, it's just nasty.

The box was sitting there no more than an hour. I was home when they delivered, so I was periodically checking for it.

Though I did order it with 2 day shipping and got to me later. And supposedly in went in a plane, so who knows where bugswould have been picked up?

Wow how weird! That sounds awful! I would be traumatized and I would think of bugs everytime I'd use the sugar scrub if it happened to me. That sucks. I wouldn't be able to use it even if it was fine. I'm sure they were attracted to the super sweer sugar. So sorry that happened to you. =[

Bugs don't even creep me out, but that would have made me a little scared too!

Bugs don't bother me too much.... I would have been freaked out if they were IN my beauty products though.

A couple months ago I ordered some candy online and when it arrived there were 50 million ants in the box, that one freaked me out a bit!!! When I opened the box they immediately crawled all over my hands. Ewwwwww!!!
