6 Sept Major Update
This update brings about a product pivot. Previously, the product was all about providing knowledgable skincare users the ability to plan their routines and research for their perfect product. However, this requires that the user knows and understands which ingredients to go for.
After much deliberation and design considerations, the feature set has been majorly scaled back, in favour of a hands-off approach to skincare. Hands off meaning that finding products should take the most minmal effort possible.
Of course, all previous development efforts will not go to waste, and I’ll adapt the code to fit into this new vision. The new product will heavily feature a product recommendation system. The goal is for the average time-strapped person to be able to skip the product researching portion completely, a very different approach than before.
Other major changes involves a freemium approach, with a timer-based ability for recommendation refreshes.
Many ingredients still need to be tagged before the recommendation algorithm becomes truly accurate, so stay tuned, I hope to get it fully usable by the end of September.
