Why A Product May Work For Someone Else But Not For You

Soooo...have you ever had a make-up or skin-care related issue that you researched until you finally found someone with the same issue who raved about the product that worked for them?

Did you rush out and buy the product expecting to get the same results; only to discover that it did not work for you?

Words fail to describe how disappointing that can be, especially if the product is expensive.  If it worked for them, shouldn't it work for you too?  The reality is that sometimes it will, and other times it won't.

While there is no 'magic formula' that will predict whether or not a product will work for you,  here are some questions that you can ask that should help:
  1. Do you have the same skin type? e.g. Oily, Normal, Dry, Combination
  2. Do you live in the same type of climate? e.g. Caribbean, U.S.A, U.K
  3. Is your lifestyle the same? Athletic, hectic, relaxed, indoors vs outdoors
  4. Is your issue of the same severity or is it milder? e.g slight vs extreme undereye darkness   
If the answer to just one of these questions is no, it could affect how well the product works for you.

So take the time to answer the questions; doing this has helped me, and I hope that it will help you too.
