Your feedback please 🙏 : Should we build this?

Hello lovely community! We need your help: we have an idea to build something on WIMJ, but we want your feedback - would this be useful for you? Here is the idea: you fill in a short questionnaire about your skin once you sign up, and then we use this information to:

1) recommend actives that would work for you (without products - like in the first screenshot) and then

2) personalize your search so that you can browse products that fit this recommended regimen (like in the second screenshot).

What do you think? Is it useful? Would you use it? Would you rather have us build something else?

For those who tried our Skincare Routine builder: it is similar, but we are getting feedback that the Routine Builder is a bit too long, so we want to find way to simplify it and make this functionality easier to use.

I do love the Routine builder functionality, but this sounds interesting too. I don't mind the length of the Routine builder and think it's great :)

Thank you all for the quick feedback, wonderful people! Could you tell us a bit more: what problems / inconveniences would this feature solve for you? What should be most convenient in it?

This seems like it'd be quicker to get recommended products than going through the whole routine builder. I like that you can choose to exclude ingredients. Maybe recommend percentages of ingredients in products, or show low irritation ones. I like the frequency and time of day feature. Is there something that shows which ingredients work well together or which ingredients shouldn't be combine together?

Tl;dr - 10/10 would use this!

As someone who is new to "researching" skincare concerns/solutions but hasn't made the leap into committing to a routine with actives - this would be extremely helpful. I appreciate the simplicity of the example above and would definitely use it. I have read countless articles, reddit threads, incidecoder, ingredient breakdowns & explanations but for the life of me cannot retain all of the details. I find myself googling the same things regularly when trying to create a simple & effective routine for my skin concerns. It becomes a bit too time consuming for me (I have an 18 month old and 3 year old) so, I end up giving up and then back to square one a month later googling 'what % _____ is effective for ______?' smh lol

SO this would be extremely helpful for me. I did the original routine builder a couple weeks ago and I did find it to be helpful. However, it was a bit long for my current (mom)brain capacity & I eventually ended up clicking random products just to get through it. I think people would really enjoy this.

I think this would be a great feature. Routine builder is also cool but indeed has a bit too much information to get through at once especially for those who are not yet too familiar with ingredients.

Yes, super cool. I’d rather use this than a version which suggests products instead of ingredients, because anyway I had to look into dupes which are available for me to buy.

I love any information that helps understand what is good for the indervidual person's need, and it helps that the people giving me that Information know what their talking about and not trying to sell me a product for their gain.👍

I think this is a great idea as I personally can get overwhelmed with which products work best for different concerns

Yes I would definitely use this! Looks like a great idea and I would love to better understand what time of day is best for certain actives, and also what actives can be used in combination with others. Thank you!

I like it. It is difficult to narrow down issues when all you have is an a) b) or c) answer eg: dry, oily or Tzone. For me to explain age issues, skin issues and concerns would cover all my issues, beyond the scope of the typical questions …. for you to then help me sort out. I am interested

Yes, I live this idea! As a consumer, I'm always lost about finding the most effective and suitable ingredients to match with my skin or certain skin condition. Looking forward to any new function from WIMJ.

Hello! I'm new here, just signed up... but this seems like a wonderful idea!

I like the idea. With the recommended products, what order would it be in? ie effectiveness, strongest, price and how many would be recommended?

2
Reply

We can shape it together:) What criteria do you think will be most helpful? How many options product options for each active would you like to see?

Reply

yes! especially as there are so many ingredients that clash and therefore have to be applied at different times (i.e. tretinoin or retinal/ol)

2
Reply

Absolutely! I especially have a problem finding out which actives I should be implementing in my skincare routine that would suite my sensitive oily skin type.

Yes please! I’d love to be able to pinpoint exactly what I need to add or yeet when it comes to my routine.
