It’s not the hype surrounding a product that should decide whether you buy it or not. While they may be recommended by your favorite influencers and makeup artists, there’s a lot of marketing involved in why they have suddenly become the talk of the town. You might not be getting unbiased opinions, and your skin suffers if you chose a product that doesn’t work for your particular skin type.
An Ultimate guide on how to pick the best skin care products
Read Reviews from People Like You
Reviews are not all bad; in fact, they may give you everything you need to know about a product, especially how it will react with your skin. But that’s if you find the right reviewers. This isn’t to say just look for a popular personality and take their word for it. Rather, look for genuine reviewers who have a similar skin type as you.
It’s even better if they do their cosmetics online shopping from the same place you buy from, so you know the origin of the product will not be questioned. Bonus points if they’re in the same country as you, as this means you both will be dealing with the same weather conditions.
Some online shops offer product samples. Take advantage of this. You can try a product without needing to purchase it for the full price. Even malls offer sample sizes from time to time, especially when a particular product is new and being promoted. With these opportunities, you can test the product firsthand but, because you didn’t buy them, you will not be disappointed if they don’t work well with your skin.
Buy from Familiar Brands
If you’re skeptical about the hype surrounding a product and you want to guarantee the best results when you buy an item, go with familiar and trusted brands instead. Even in the Korean beauty market, there are brands that shine more than others for their cutting-edge technology. They earn their reputation from having products that have lived up to the hype.
Those who don’t have a skincare routine consider makeup to be a waste of money. To prove them wrong, buy products that will not make you regret them.
