Grading Guide

After careful consideration and for practical reason, I think it's time I do a third revamp on how I rate and review products. I find that rating these product according to respective criteria like "packaging", "scent", "texture", "CP value", "ingredients" and so on are sometimes too subjective. I cannot standardize the grades because I don't always remember how I feel when I rate other products. I also find recording my grading every time on a separate working sheet is quite troublesome and at times impractical. As such, I seek to simplify things once again to remove all these shits to make sure that my reviews are comprehensive, detailed yet not too nagging.

From now on, my product review will be broken down into addressing multiple aspects of the products, which will be included in the review itself. I will not rate packaging, scent, texture, cost-performance, ingredients and efficacy of products on a 5-points scale from now on. You'll find these information by reading off my blog post.

The conclusion and rating parts shall be simplified to only containing pros, cons, overall impression, and chances of me repurchasing the product.

My overall impression on a product will depend on the category of the product, such as "cleanser", "toner", and "serum", and these categories are not replaceable by each another so do in keep in mind that, although I might find cleanser less important than serum (for instance), I will still rate it high if it is the best cleanser in the cleanser category.

Rating Scale
★★★★★ my holy grail product!
★★★★     good and I enjoy using it!
★★★         meh; neither good or bad
★★             something about its quality turns me down
★                 terrible; a total waste of time and money
