Style United Review
I joined Style United as part of a SheSpeaks bloggers experience to aid in reviewing the website. I must say, I am glad I signed up and gave the website a shot.
If you are unfamiliar, Style United, is a website that offers beauty and fashion tips but those tips are geared specifically toward you, your style and your personal preference. You build a personalized beauty profile based around skin, hair, makeup and fashion. How is this achieved? Well, say you want tips on skincare, you answer a few short easy questions and it will provide you with products that will gear toward achieving your desired result. Since Style United is run by P&G many of the products featured can be purchased at your local drugstore or department store (i.e. Target, Walmart, etc.). This goes all around the board with fashion, etc., the website particularly catering to the information you put into it. So it's not telling you to use Product X, when you should be using Product Y. It's giving you fair examples, based on the information provided as to what your path (if chosen to follow) should be. Same with Fashion, except it will show you outfits or pieces that they feel would be flattering to you.
I realize that many of us (particularly myself included) know what we are supposed to do to preserve our skin, etc., but we don't always use the tools and tips that we've been told. I find the information presented on Style United gives you a gentle nudge in the right direction. Reading things and wanting to make a change for the better is the way to go in my opinion. Sometimes I have a thick skull and it takes me a few times to get it right. But once you've got it, you're good as gold.
One thing I really like about the website is while building your style profile the website gives you little blurbs of information on the sidebar based on what you are selecting. Example if you say your main concern is acne, it reassures you that you are not the only one and acne is pretty common amongst a percentage of women.
One of the coolest things, and one of the things I wish I had a webcam for, was you are able to have a live 1:1 webcam chat with a beauty consultant through the website. I mean how amazing is that!? They are available to suit almost everyone's schedule, the consultants being available: Mon – Sun: 1:00 – 9:30 pm EST (minus major holidays of course).
If you haven't heard of or joined Style United, I would suggest you definitely check into it, it's a pretty cool website. If you are interested in joining, check here for a chance to win a $500 gift certificate.
