Flashback to the 1980s, and if you wanted to nab yourself a brand new lipstick, or stock up on a new face cream, you’d have to drag yourself down to the local high street and (potentially) spend hours um-ing and ah-ing about which red suits your skin tone or the best moisturiser for a fiver.
Well, now it’s 2015, and we can purchase beauty from the comfort of our own home thanks to that little invention called the internet. And not only that, but there are hundreds of sites to choose from; online versions of the big high street names, online-only e-tailers, and even those wonder sites that allow us to purchase products not available in the UK. It’s safe to say we are spoilt for choice.
Now, we’re not complaining, but sometimes this HUGE range of choice can be just a little bit overwhelming. How do we find the perfect product for us in a sea of cosmetic companies and skincare brands? Well, there’s always Google for reviews and friends for advice. But, then again, we all have different skin types with different needs, so what works for one person might not work for another. Talk about confused.
But, what’s this? A clever little website has come to our rescue, in the form of www.thisispowder.co.uk, offering bespoke beauty advice and tailored product recommendations. Select what you’re after, be it eye cream, mascara, or foundation, then fill in your skin type, tone and desired price point. The clever Powder will narrow down your choices to find the product that is made for you and your specific needs. Buy the products direct from the site, or keep them lingering in your e-cart until payday. And with new categories being added all the time, you’re sure to be coming back for more. Oh, and did we mention it’s TOTALLY FREE.
Now if that isn’t genius, what is? Sign up now before you commit another beauty sin.
