I’ll admit it. I’m a total sucker for product packaging. Nothing gets my pulse racing like gorgeous, pretty, clever packaging. Indeed, I’m a company’s dream consumer as I’ve bought countless beauty goodies based solely on the oh-so-appealing packaging.

Hey, if something’s going to make us look more beautiful (makeup, hair products, skincare creams) we expect the packaging to be beautiful too. So, how can we pretty packaging junkies avoid products that fall short once you get beyond the container? Here are some easy tips to ensure your product isn’t just another pretty face:  Read on…
