I’m interrupting a clearout/organisational session to quickly come over here and admit defeat.
For the past 6+ months I’ve been completely overwhelmed by the sheer volume of review products I’ve accumulated. You see, instead of ditching the ones that I didn’t get around to (and by ditching I mean giving them away to someone deserving), I’ve been hoarding them ‘for later’ out of guilt.
There’s nothing wrong with the products that I haven’t gotten around to – I just have a limited skin surface to test things on. Some things might not be suitable for me, but others just kept getting pushed back in the queue for no reason at all.
My point: I’m going to organise some reader reviews. I’ll give out more details once I’ve catalogued everything I want to send out to readers, but for now I’d like to gauge interest.
If you’re keen on reviewing some goods (it’s not second hand products, they’re all new/unopened/unused), please pop me a mail with your name, age, the area you live in and why you’d like to review some products – we’ll go into more details at a later stage. You can use the email on my contact page, and please put READER REVIEWS as the subject line. Only South African locals please, I’m not spending my life savings on postage elsewhere 😛
Aside from sorting out my dilemma of too many products hoarded and too little time, I’m excited about adding a little diversity, i.e. hearing and sharing the opinions of readers who are of different ages, skin tones, skin types and tastes.
Simultaneously, once I know the additional products are being seen to, I can focus better on the products that I’m testing, using and learning about – ironically I may very likely be able to better keep up with new launches and put out more content once my workload seems manageable. The clutter and the excess is driving me mad!
Looking forward to hearing from you guys.
