Sephora Skin Care Quiz

Is the Sephora Skin Care Routine Builder good?

The Sephora skin care quiz allows you to shop from many brands.  However, the downsides of the are:

We do not feel the Sephora skin care test is accurate enough. It is not evidence-based, all the brands are not dermatologist- tested and medical grade skin care lines.

Clinique Skin Type Quiz and Calculator

The Clinique skin type quiz was the first that I remember.  This brand was developed by a dermatologist and was revolutionary in being the first to match a skin care routine to your skin types.  I loved sliding the little tabs to see what my skin type was.  But this skin typing system looked at eye color and hair color which do not play a role in building a scientific skin care routine.

The Clinique skin care routine quiz only gives you recommendations for Clinique products and does not allow you to choose the best products from different brands.
