How The App Will Save You Money...

Built on three key pillars; shelf, social & source, SKIN is the new free, price-comparison app seeking to change the way beauty consumers discover, shop and share products. It's set up to work in three simple steps, and it's easy to follow once you sign up:

Step #1: SHELF

This is where you store your personal inventory of beauty products. Choose from thousands of brands and upload your most-loved items. You can arrange them however you like, and create collections from morning and evening routines to birthday wish-lists. The more products you add, the more price alerts you’ll receive when they are on offer from the best retailers on the internet. Think of the app as your personal shopper - shopping the best deals so you don't have to search for them.

Step #2: SOCIAL

Connect with your friends, followers and industry heroes. You can share and recommend, ask questions, read reviews and see which products your friends are using.

Step #3: SOURCE

The final step is where you can discover new brands, products and guest edits that suit your needs. Find out who uses your favourite products and shop them at the best price across SKIN retailers

The Brands To Discover…

There are over 2,500 brands on the app and it’s not just about skincare – you’ll also find make-up, fragrance and hair. Expect to see Medik8, Olaplex, Skinceuticals – from top retailers Boots, LookFantastic, FeelUnique and more – in short, you can expect all your go-to buys on the app as well as plenty of niche brands and retailers to explore, too. Offering the best beauty prices on the internet at the touch of a button, you can save up to 22% on the likes of SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic and 32% on cult items like Elemis' Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm just through shopping with SKIN.

Who’s Behind SKIN…

Founded by the dynamic young duo Flinty Bane and Ben Barter, the pair have used their experiences as beauty consumers to curate an app for every type of user and need. Flinty is the brains behind the tech and consumer journey, while Ben drives the business to the next level through partnerships and trend forecasting. The result? An app that breaks down one of the biggest barriers in beauty: price.

What The Founders Say…

“SKIN isn’t just about hunting down the best bargain for your skincare – it’s also about community and sharing knowledge,” explain Ben & Flinty. “SKIN was designed for savvy beauty shoppers, revolutionising the shopping experience by bringing the purchasing power back to the consumer. At the end of the day, who doesn't want to save money on their favourite beauty buys?"
