I was recently approached by MyBeautyCompare.com which is a comparison website but for beauty products. It sounded very interesting so I was really excited to give them a try and share my thoughts with you.
They claim to be the world's first beauty price comparison site giving us the opportunity to find the best deal on over 1500 brands of beauty products whilst making sure they are the right ones to suit you.
After filling out a quick form about yourself such as your skin type, skin concerns, eye colour, hair type/colour, your water intake, alcohol consumption, how much sleep you get, and diet you are recommended products based on the details you have given them. The form is a very simple multiple choice and only takes a couple of minutes to fill in.
I think this is great. It's especially good for skincare as you are matched with products that will work for you and help improve your skin. No matter how many reviews you read, you can never be 100% sure that the product will be right for you, as something that is good for one persons skin isn't always the case for your own. I think my beloved Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish is amazing but I know people who break out when they use it. I’m forever reading ingredients on bottles trying to see if it would suit my skin type and this site does that all for you.
The only thing I didn’t like was the in the tanning section it matched me to much paler tans than I would like, based on my ‘fair’ skin tone. Even though I am technically fair I like my tan to be dark so I tend to opt for the medium to dark end of the spectrum when it comes to tanning. But obviously you can go against your recommendations and read reviews of the products you like the sound of. It was nice to look into brands I wouldn't normally consider.
I must be doing something right, they matched me with a couple of my favourite concealers! I'm now tempted to go straight to my Clinique counter to try the other one!
We all like to save a bit of cash, I don’t know about you but when ordering online I like to see which sites have the best deal and I rarely order from the same place over and over again, so Beauty compare also shows you how much the product is on different web sites. I think it would be nicer if there was also the option to compare to a few more high street stores too but I suppose that could come in time.
Overall I think this is a great idea and I can see it becoming very popular incredibly quickly!
