Shopping for beauty products can be a beautiful, but daunting experience. Don’t get me wrong, I love nothing more than strolling into a clean beauty store, testing and trialing a slew of products, and chatting with the store associates like I’m in a beauty therapy session… “I broke up with my cleansing oil last week. It just wasn’t working out.” But when it comes to finally putting my own precious mullah down, it means business.
With some holy grail products costing upwards of $200, you want to make sure you’re buying a product that you not only love, but one that actually works. That’s why I was beyond blissed (and #blessed) when I was introduced to Follain’s skin quiz that helps you narrow your search and feel confident about your purchase — and to give your wallet a break, here’s a 15% off code: ref15_cyqu58.
WHAT IS THE FOLLAIN SKIN QUIZ?
The Follain Skin Quiz is a 7 multiple choice question quiz that helps you narrow your product selection to four products in each category based on your unique answers. Think of it like a psychic-meets-facialist at your finger tips.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
About as long as it takes to make a cup of tea — approximately 3 minutes. Maybe 5 if you’re really into it.
WHAT TYPE OF QUESTIONS ARE ASKED?
The topics range from basic lifestyle questions to your primary skin concerns and problem areas.
WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED ROUTINE?
Consistency and a well-rounded routine is key here kids.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The Follain skin quiz is free! YOU get a quiz, and YOU get a quiz and YOU get a quiz!
Oprah anyone? See here to get a laugh if you didn’t get that joke.
Anyways, there are no sneaky, hidden WTF costs to this quiz, I promise. Of course, you have to pay for the products, but Follain does a great job recommending products at range of prices so even if you’re on a tight beauty budget, they’ve got you covered. Not to mention, Follain is truly a reliable and top-notch nontoxic beauty retailer. You can learn more about their highly transparent and stringent vetting process here.
DOES IT WORK?
I can personally vouch for you on this one and say yes, the Follain skin quiz really does work. I’m a blogger so I try a ton of products, but this quiz really did nail the products that help bring my skin back into balance and make the entire purchasing process easy-peasy. After a month, my skin was glowing looking like J-LO’s, or at least that’s what it felt like. My skin was brighter and, most notably, softer. I would say I started to see results around week 2.
TELL ME MORE…
So, I have rosacea. It’s annoying and I’m self-conscious about it. The recommended Osea Probiotic Polish helped soothe my inflamed red cheeks and acted as a gentle exfoliator that scrubbed the teeny tiny, and oh-so-annoying bumps away. It’s one of the first products to really make change in my red undertones.
On another note, I have now have an undeniable obsession with the smell of Indie Lee’s Brightening Cleanser. Compare it to running through a field of flowers on a lovely spring day. That sounds so cheesy and dramatic, but I’m not kidding — and I’m not even into scented beauty products! This pick has the perfect balance of feminine fresh and I’m debating tasting a little of it because it smells so good. If you haven’t tried it (or smelled it) I recommend you run to the nearest Follain store or buy it online. You won’t regret it.
Overall, I’m simply thankful Follain created this skin quiz, because there is a lot of clean beauty BS out there right now and this makes shopping for new products fun, easy, and effective. Here’s the link again to check it out for yourself!
