How you determine whether a skincare product is working for you?
If my prior skincare routine was already hitting the right notes for me, then I look for that to keep going with the new product (e.g. if my skin was hydrated, then if it started to feel less hydrated, that’d be an issue) or is improving my skin overall by whatever it’s supposed to. I typically test products until I finish them unless a product that doesn’t stay on the skin long (like cleansers, scrubs, etc.). If I feel an extremely strong reaction within a week that’s negative, I might discontinue use (an example would be a moisturizer and my skin tightening and drying noticeably) unless that’s a potential short-term,
