First of all, welcome @CC_Deodorant_01! We’ve got some new faces in here, so if you’re new we encourage you to say hello. This is the weekly update from Community Cosmetics on what’s happening with the forum and our Co-Creator program, available only to Co-Creators.
Body Wash 01D
Your feedback has been great on Body Wash 01D and we’d like to declare it a success, but before we can call it officially done and kick it off as our first official product we’ve created together, we are holding a naming contest! For those of you who participated in this module, we need you to name our first product, click here to submit your entry (one per person):
We’ll hold two rounds of voting, the first is to members of this group who participated in the Lotion 01 module, and the second round will be to the public, so you can invite your friends and we’ll let other community members vote as well - those of you who are new Co-Creators will be able to participate in round two of voting.
Note: The link above will only be accessible to members who participated in the Body Lotion 01 module.
Note 2: We sent Body Wash in the Body Lotion 01 package as a follow up to our Body Wash 01 module, which is why some of you might be scratching your head as to why we’re voting on a Body Wash here, but that’s why. From time to time we might send products we’re still working on to you, regardless of the module’s title. Bonus!
We’re still working on the Body Lotion, we don’t think it’s quite ready. Based on your feedback it looks like the scent still needs some work, though just about everything else was spot on. If you received this sample, please send us your thoughts here on how we can improve the scent: https://forum.communitycosmetics.com/t/body-lotion-01a-feedback-questionnaire/631/
We’ll be releasing some more detailed questions regarding the deodorant, so be on the lookout for those this week.
New Address Fields
We’ve added private shipping address fields, so now you can keep this updated for us.
Make sure to complete your address and phone now. It is your responsibility to have this completed in your forum profile before we send out samples. Just go to your Profile, and click on Profile, and you’ll see these fields to complete.
If you haven’t completed your Certified badge yet, please do so. Because the community lives on this forum software it’s important you know how to navigate your way around it, and the GuidedTourBot’s Greetings! message will show you how. It’s also a Co-Creator requirement.
We’re excited to announce a new initiative launching this month we’re calling Face-Off, where we leverage our community to crowd-source the effectiveness of commercial products. Have you ever wondered if any of these products you’re trying actually work? Not sure if that influencer, beauty blog, or 5 star review is shooting you straight? And even if they are, is their product right for your skin? Well, we’re going to find out! We’ll be testing an array of creams, serums, masks, etc. and let YOU judge their effectiveness.
Think of it as crowdsourced Consumer Reports for skincare. We’ll be sending re-packaged commercial products (many of them high-end) to create blind tests, where participants upload daily photos of their progress to our community for judging at regular intervals. By pooling all of the results together, our community will have a measurable & objective way of evaluating product efficacy that’s much more powerful and credible than any one individual product review.
Why are we doing this?
Because we’re passionate about taking an evidence-based approach to skincare.
Does this conflict with Community Cosmetics mission to create natural products?
We don’t think so, in fact it’s a natural progression of our product testing community. Hey, if you like the CC brand of products and want to buy them, great! But if our products aren’t right for you, we want to help you find products that are.
Co-Creators are welcome to participate, look for instructions on how to apply this week!
Live simply, give generously,
