When I started looking at beauty product packaging, I realized that soooooooooo many products come in jars (side note: why don't cosmetic companies know this?). So, I began using Paula's Choice to find new products. It can be a little daunting to narrow down the selection and figure out what to choose, because you can search by item or by brand for pretty much anything (no hair products or really new products). There is a lot of information, including: product name, whether the product has been discontinued, purpose of the product, number of oz., price, and overall rating...that's just on the first page.
Once you find your product of choice, there is both technical information and also any relevant information on characteristics, like texture, that wouldn't necessarily be obvious from it's chemical components.
Although the reviews are generally short, I found that there were a lot, and I mean A LOT, of high-end or well-known brands, not to mention cult favorites, that are essentially...junk...and more than likely, expensive junk. I took quite sometime to look through Paula's Choice reviews and revamp my skincare and makeup. Now, I don't make a purchase without consulting the website first. Why waste money on products that don't do the job or are actually harmful to your face (hello, you only have one!)?
Hope this helps you with your future beauty purchases! Anyone else tried Paula's Choice?
