PillowSkin is a skincare tracking and research tool for cynics.
Why was PillowSkin created?
Building a skincare routine is hard. Not just hard to understand, but hard to test products, track progress, optimize for efficiency and cost, and build good habits. To make things even harder, there are companies that put out sub-par products, use shady marketing tactics, and make supportable claims. Not only that, but consumer safety for online purchases are big issues too.
PillowSkin was created to save time, effort, and money. It is designed to simplify the process of building, testing, and researching a skincare routine. It also aims to provide comprehensive information on products, ingredient, and companies. These objectives allow for users to be fully in-the-know when making purchase decisions and when conducting their own product testing.

Behind the Pillow
PillowSkin was created by me, Tze Yiing. I am a self-taught programmer based in Singapore. I am also a trained accountant, with experience working on fraud analytics and prediction modelling. When not programming, I enjoy weightlifting, running, and of course, skincare. When inspiration strikes, I also write about technical stuff on my blog.
PillowSkin has been in operation since May 2019.
I do not do not provide an ad-supported tier. This is because I want to ensure sole accountability towards my users only. I do not sell or exchange any data within the app with 3rd parties.
Can PillowSkin give medical advice on my skin?
No. PillowSkin is a tool for Over The Counter (OTC) skincare products. It does not provide medical advice or prescribe medication. Please seek a dermatologist for medical advice.
That said, PillowSkin will be able to encourage good skincare habits, such as patch testing products, creating usage schedules, and tracking your skin’s reaction to products. This approach may help you isolate the causes for your skin issues, or identify OTC products that do not break you out.
