Review on a body product and a skin problem: How long should I use it before reviewing it?

Ryuson Ryuson
I have a skin disorder, and recently got a product on here that some users said helped clear their similar problem up. I have been taking a picture of my skin every night for the past few days and it doesn't seem to be getting better yet. How many days should I document this for? I don't want to load my review up with too many pictures of the 'progress,' but I also don't want to jump the gun. Help!

Wow, talk about going the extra mile! It might be a little more difficult for you to see the small changes taking place over a long period of time, and you don't have to include every single picture you take. Just include Day 1, then say Day 12 and then the day when the condition has cleared to a point where you feel the product was successful.

Some products work super fast and others take a long time. I know some skin products I've used have said up to six to eight weeks to see improvement. You should see something within a month though. If you look at your Day 1 photo and, say, your Day 20 photo and there is literally ZERO difference, I'd say you could call it at that point.

Agree with Stormy. When you post it, just post pictures for Day 1, Day 12 (or 15 or whatever), and then the final day. If it got worse before it got better, include another photo for that.

I am going to agree with these ladies.

I agree with Kira, don't include all the photos, just the beginning, middle, end & maybe one that shows beginning progress/worsening.

I would take one picture a week and maybe then you'll see more of an improvement. You might now be noticing much of an improvement because you're taking a picture a day. A month should be good for an accurate review and don't forget about the follow up! Follow up reviews might be a great idea for people with these kinds of issues and products, I'd love to know which one you're reviewing (miss Exema over here). Everyone's skin is different as well so take that into account Your body is special and if it is something new, your body may need time to adjust. Also, try using it before bed if possible, your body absorbs things better when it is at rest (moisturizers etc.). Good luck! I can't wait to see a review!

I would use it for about 20-30 days and then show us pictures of the beginning, halfway, and the day you "stopped" and call it that.

At least 2 weeks probably more

I would probably use it for 30 days (assuming it doesn't make your problem worse). And take a picture every week.

I would say until you get a good feel for it and how it works for you. However long that takes.

Yep, I'll add to the agreement on 20-30 days.

I would think until you see an improvement or 20-30 days. Whatever happens first.
