Girly Product Comparisons
November 26, 2007 4:33 PM   Subscribe

Are there any magazines or websites which provide comparisons/recommendations for girly grooming products?

Whenever I see recommendations in the major women's magazines, they seem to be tied to whoever bought ads in that issue, so I don't trust the (for lack of a better term) journalistic integrity of those recommendations.

Are there any magazines or websites which somewhat-objectively compare different products (shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer, make-up, nail clippers, etc.)?

Best answer: Seconding Makeupalley ( There are reviews for every product imaginable, by actual users, not people who are paid to advertise the product.

You also might try that old faithful standby, Consumer Reports.

Makeup Alley is great. Paula Begoun, I appreciated her no-bullshit approach to personal care products even though I'm totally all about the shiny packaging and pretty smells--until she started shilling her own line. Now I don't trust her.

Best answer: I like this site, which I think was linked to somewhere on AskMe. Imagine dooce writing beauty articles. It has some of the comparison stuff you want, but I like it for the step by step illustrated tutorials. It's theoretically aimed towards ladies with kids, but I'm 18 and still find plenty that applies to me.
