New Design Launch & an Exciting Sulwhasoo Giveaway!
At long last! I’m so happy to see the new design go live, and I hope all of you find it to be an even better experience than the old one. There are still a few kinks to work out , and you’ll be seeing some new additions to the sidebar over the next several days.
I have a new product rating system, which I’ve already begun using for very recent reviews. It’s been tweaked a bit since I last posted about it, and will probably be adjusted a bit more over the next couple of weeks. I’ve increased the penalty for potential acne triggers or irritants in ingredient lists, which are measured based on their CosDNA scores. I am considering increasing penalties in other areas as well, specifically in the efficacy category. It’s really important to me that each of the rating categories are weighted properly, and accurately reflect my experience as well as the objective quality of the products reviewed.
I’ve also added the ability to sign up for email updates for the Skin & Tonics website. The way it works is easy: just enter your email in the email update signup box located in the header (or the footer) of the site, and you’ll get an email every time a new post goes up. I promise not to spam anyone, and because privacy is super important to me, I will never sell your information to anyone for any reason, for any price.
And lastly, I want to celebrate the new design. I wish I could just have everyone over for drinks, and to bust open a giant skincare piñata, but that idea is impractical and would probably end with hundreds of people passed out in my cul-de-sac slathered in face creams and sheet masks. Children would cry, and the grumpy old man across the street (who, no joke, keeps a video camera affixed to a street lamp in front of his house and points it at our road) would just call the cops and the fire department, the way he does every year when my next door neighbors throw their annual pig-pickin’.
Instead, I’m going with a much more traditional blog-related celebration in the form of a giveaway. And this one is good – I put a lot of thought into it. I’m giving one lucky winner a set of 3 full-size Sulwhasoo masks:
– 1x Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Mask
– 1x Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask
– 1x Sulwhasoo TruFresh Soothing Mask
To enter, just follow the steps in the Rafflecopter widget below! As always, this giveaway is open internationally. The giveaway will close at 11:59 pm EST on Friday, May 30, 2014. The winner will be chosen at random, notified via email, and announced via Twitter and the Skin & Tonics Facebook page by June 1, 2014.
Good luck, everyone!
