There has been some misunderstanding and serious lack of logic from people writing negative reviews. I am going to respond to these absurdic comments and head on to describing my personal experience:
1. Her reviews became biased since she runs her own skincare now:
Well, it does have some logic in it, however you need to understand that the principles she used for reviewing the product has been described in her books long before she runned her skincare. Also, she is the only person who runs her skincare line and recommend using other products from other skincare brands. She recommends different products and you can choose the best one for you by simply trying out best rated. Also, what if she decided to run her own company because she knows she can help people struggling with skin concerns. How about she just wants to help others
2. Companies who have great reviews on this website paid her to get good rating.
If you know Estee Lauder group includes Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Smashbox and so forth. Well, why then most of Bobbi Brown skin care products are rated awfully while many Clinique ones are good rated? Would not it be better for Estee Lauder to pay her to get good reviews on all products made by their companies?
3. I tried her products and they did not work for me, im allergic to some components of her products and so forth.
Excuse me, just because they did not work for you does not mean they are useless. If you are allergic to nuts will you be eating them everytime you read an article stating that nuts are healthy? NO. Well, why the fock would you use her products if you are allergic to their components omg dont be so focking stupid
4. Products rated poorly worked well for me.
If you did not have any issues on your skin and you bought a cream and it is ok for you, why would you recommend it to others. Nothing changed. Your skin was good it is still good now. Maybe this is the reason the product rated poorly. Or you had some issues, and the product rated poorly helped. If you got rid off the problem go to this website write your own review, tell people that they might consider it.
Why do i like this website? Well i was having some concerns with my skin. And 'amazing' and 'popular' bobbi brown products did not help me at all, only made it worse. I had combination skin, terribly oily forehead, super dry cheeks and constantly oily t-zone. Plus i hadgreat amount of bumps and redness on my cheeks. So altogether not really impressive. And i was trying and buying many different products. And one evening i got tired of all this pointless endless search. I decided to google in order to find a website where dermatologists would review their products. I found beautypedia but unfortunately i could not buy products best rated there because of their location. Except for one, Clinique. I purchased highly recommended by Beautypedia Clinique stuff and my skin turned into a fantasy within a week. From now one i am only purchasing products rated by Beautypedia with at least 3 stars. This website, her tips, her explanation on why some ingredients are problematic helped me out so much. She is perhaps the only person who is really trying to help people all around the world. She brought so much research. She basically collected all well known facts about skin care and brought it to people. Even if you do not like this website go and try collecting all these articles by yourself. Go and help others fighting with bumps acne and other concerns. And then you can judge. Before that keep your mouths shut
