Idea & Goals

We've noticed that people barely pay attention to the expiration date of their beauty products, such as makeups, skin care products, even fragrances. Apparently, it’s harmful to your skin by using expired beauty stuff. And It’s undoubtedly wasting money to discarding expired beauty products. In order to prevent this kind of wasting, we intended to develop an application that records expiration dates of beauty products and regularly reminds users of the expiration dates. By using this app, users can make the best use of their beauty products, and save some money. 

User Research

As an initial point, we talked to some of our friends and conducted 6 interviews to have a general sense about the problems they meet when managing beauty products and their main expectations from this app.

We also analyzed some popular beauty products shopping applications to get to know more about the habits of users. Based on those researches, we decided the main features of our app and started to draw the function map and user flow as well as build a backed code structure.
