UPDATE! New rating system

27 Jan

It has come to my attention that my 5 Star rating system isn’t accurately conveying my feelings on all of the products I review. Some products that I love are have been lumped together w/ products I only like & some drugstore brand products receive “fluff points” for being inexpensive, although they’re not effective. #NoBueno! The whole purpose of a product review is to help other consumers make informed buying decisions. Hopefully my new & improved rating system will dispel any ambiguity in this area. Effective immediately, I will assign a score (1 thru 9) to each product in the same three categories (Price, Packaging & Efficacy). I will average these ratings to assign an overall score & round up or down as needed.

Price: 1 means it’s very expensive, 5 means it’s the average price for this sort of product & 9 means it’s dirt cheap

Packaging: 1 means it’s horribly packaged, 5 means the packaging is average & 9 means the packaging is excellent

Efficacy: 1 means it doesn’t work, 5 means it has a mediocre performance, 9 means it works wonderfully

Hey Glams,

I’ve discussed way too many products to redo every review, but if you’d like to know how a past product would score w/ the new rating system, I will happily update it for you. Just email your request to ShamIam.Glam@gmail.com, with “Update Product Review” in the subject line. Thanks for your continued support & readership! 🙂

Love, Sham
