Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

What makes Your Custom Beauty different from other beauty product websites?


Your Custom Beauty is like no other beauty website you’ve visited.  We provide our users with the equivalent of a one-on-one beauty consultation.  Exactly when you need it.  

In addition to researching the ingredients, effectiveness, and actual results of every single product we recommend,  Your Custom Beauty is the one and only beauty product recommendation website that codes each feature of every single one of our recommended products to provide you with the beauty product recommendations that will address your unique needs and challenges.

You can read more about what makes Your Custom Beauty different on our About page.


What makes Your Custom Beauty so unique?


  • Your Custom Beauty has spent thousands (seriously, thousands!) of hours researching skincare, cosmetic and haircare product ingredients.  We know what works and why.
  • We also understand that certain ingredients commonly cause skin sensitivities or allergic reactions.  None of our recommended products contain alcohol, heavy fragrances, or other common irritants.
  • Then we apply this knowledge to determine the finest products containing the most beneficial ingredients.
  • Next, we read every user review we can find of these vetted products to determine which are the VERY BEST of the very best.  
  • Last, and most importantly, we tag every single product in our database according to its ingredients, the benefits the product provides the end user, if the product contains any potential allergens, and dozens of other attributes.


Does Your Custom Beauty charge anything to use the website?


No.  Your Custom Beauty does not charge for any of our product recommendation services or any other information or services that we may provide our users.  

Our mission is simple:

To assist our website users in selecting the best, most effective skincare, cosmetic and haircare products for their unique needs by providing specific, customized product recommendations based on thorough, unbiased product research, scientifically-proven effectiveness, and independent user reviews.


How does Your Custom Beauty determine which products to recommend for me?


We take the information you enter while answering our straightforward, user-friendly quizzes (Skincare, Cosmetics, and/or Haircare) and match that with our highly curated products to provide you with the very best recommendations for YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS AND CONCERNS.


Can I purchase the recommended items on Your Custom Beauty website?


Your Custom Beauty works with one of the industry’s most respected online retailers to ensure our users are able to purchase any of the products Your Custom Beauty recommends.  There is no obligation to purchase products through our website, however, that is one of our revenue sources and we’d sure love to have your business!  You’ll find that in most instances you are able to buy these products at a much more competitive price than what’s offered at most retail stores.


Do I have to take the quiz/create a Profile to access the website?


No.  Any visitor to Your Custom Beauty is able to navigate to any page on the website, with the exception of the ‘Profile’ page.  A user Profile is automatically created once a user takes any one of our quick, user-friendly quizzes (Skincare, Cosmetics, Haircare).  Once you have completed a quiz, we save the information you’ve provided into your personal Profile and generate a customized list of product recommendations based on your individual needs and concerns.


How do I create an account?


As soon as you click on any of the ‘take Your Custom Beauty Quiz’ buttons, you will be directed to a Signup page where you will be asked to enter your e-mail address and the password that you would like to use to access Your Custom Beauty account/profile.  From there you will select the quiz or quizzes (Skincare, Cosmetics, Haircare) for which you would like to receive product recommendations.  After completing each quiz, Your Custom Beauty saves all of your Recommended Products and pertinent information to your personal Profile page(s).  You are also able to create a Wishlist if you’re not quite ready to purchase a product at any given time.


Why should I take the Your Custom Beauty Quizzes?


By taking any of the Quizzes, you will provide us with the information necessary to give you specific, customized beauty product recommendations for your particular needs and concerns.


When/Why would I need to retake one of the Quizzes?


Of course you would want to retake a quiz if you discover that you answered one of the questions incorrectly while reviewing your Profile information, to ensure you receive the most accurate product recommendations.  You should also retake the Skincare quiz, in particular, if you become pregnant, are diagnosed with a skin condition (rosacea, eczema, etc.) or as the seasons change.  Or just for fun!

If you aren’t sure how to answer a particular question, just select the answer that most closely matches your personal characteristics or preferences.


How do I create a Profile on Your Custom Beauty?


As soon as you complete at least one of Your Custom Beauty quizzes, the website will automatically create your unique personal Profile and recommended beauty products.  You can access your Profile at any time by logging in and clicking on “My Profile.”  You can also find your previously purchased products, your ‘Recommended Products’ and ‘Wishlist’ items by clicking on the menu item on the left of the Profile page.


I forgot my password. How do I reset my password?


If you forget your password, click on the “Forget Your Password?” link at the bottom of the Login page and follow the instructions provided.  You can also change your password by clicking on the “My Profile” menu item and selecting the ‘Settings’ option.


How do I subscribe to receive email updates from Your Custom Beauty?


Simply click on “Sign Up for Newsletter” located in the footer at the bottom of each page on the website.  Subscribing to Your Custom Beauty newsletter and e-mail notifications provides you with the opportunity to be the first to know about special product promotions, new beauty products specific to your particular needs and concerns, beauty industry news and more!  The newsletter gives you a summary of the most current information from the Your Custom Beauty website and social media pages.


How do I unsubscribe from Your Custom Beauty email updates?

How do I find a specific item on your website?


You can search for a particular brand or product using our Search feature located in both the header (at the top of each web page) and the footer (bottom of each page).  Just click on the magnifying glass icon and type in the brand name or product name you are looking to find.


The product I’m looking for isn’t on your website. What should I do?


If you do not find a particular product on our website, we are either unaware of the product or have not included it in our recommendations because it does not meet one or more our very high product standards.  Please feel free to suggest the item by contacting us at info@yourcustombeauty.com.  If you represent a brand or product manufacturer and would like to submit samples for our review, please use the “Contact Us” form to submit a request for shipping information.

Do you charge sales tax?


If an item is subject to sales tax in the state to which the order is shipped, tax is generally calculated on the total selling price of each individual item. In accordance with state tax laws, the total selling price of an item will generally include item-level shipping and handling charges, item-level discounts, gift-wrap charges, and an allocation of order-level shipping and handling charges and order-level discounts.

The amount of tax charged on your order will depend upon many factors including the seller, type of item purchased, and destination of the shipment. Factors can change between the time you place an order and the time of credit card charge authorization, which could affect the calculation of sales taxes. The amount appearing on your order as Estimated Tax may differ from the sales taxes ultimately charged.
