Don’t groan; there’s another new title for my (defunct) monthly favourites that I’m testing. Basically the gist of what I’m trying to get across to people, via one lousy title that’s really hard to decide on, is that these are the very best, most effective beauty products of the month. Out of everything that’s been tested, researched, poked about and slathered onto my skin, these are the things that have impressed me the most.
So this video used to be called Most Used, then it was What Worked, and now, like some weird, desperate word-pedlar, I am seeing how the title 5 Best Beauty Products: November 2018 goes down. It could just as easily be called The Best in Beauty: November 2018, or Most Effective Beauty: November 2018, but I feel as though they both sound more like something you’d see on screen at an awards ceremony.
What do you think? I rely on you, my sounding board, to guide me through the internet darkness and help me arrive at a moderately sensible place. So let me know which title you lean towards.
Regardless of title choice, I do hope that these videos are useful in sorting the proverbial wheat from the chaff; knowing which beauty products to plump for and which to disregard. This month sees the approval of two retinol products (at two very different price points), a barrier repair cream, a spray-on skin dew and a cheap-as-chips Vitamin C serum.
You can find product links below the video pane; I’ll be doing more in-depth reviews on most of the products shown, so keep an eye on the Skincare Category here on the blog.
