The Company’s Reputation
One of the first things you should do when trying to figure out if you can trust the maker of the beauty product you have won is the reputation of the company. This is possible by reading reviews online and speaking with people who have used the beauty products in the past. This is a crucial step, so make sure not to overlook it.
The Product Packaging
Believe it or not, the way the product is packaged can tell you a lot about the quality of the item inside. For example, does it have tamper-evident caps? Or a security or freshness seal? Is it marked with an expiration date? If you answered yes to these questions, this is a good sign. However, if the packaging is flimsy, subpar, or doesn’t include an expiration date, use caution. These are all things you need to look for when it comes to quality beauty products.
The Price
How much would the item cost if it was purchased, rather than won? Remember, prices that are too good to be true are like that for a reason. Be sure to keep this in mind before using the product you have learned.
There’s no question it can be exciting to win something – especially a beauty product. However, before you let this excitement take over and use a product you aren’t sure about, do your research. This will ensure you don’t use something that may cause you harm.
