How it works

  • You can open your SOS GUIDEBOOK on your computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone or e-reader, so it’s with you wherever you are.
  • Simply search for specific styles or beauty items, for example mineral make up, organic shampoo, false eye-lashes or nail polish.
  • Or if you have a certain amount you’re willing to spend, you simply shop in ‘budget’ stores, ‘mid-range’ stores or ‘luxe’ stores, whichever suits your wallet. (Relax, there are beauty products for every bank account, big or small).
  • Whenever you see a store in the book you like the sound of, just click on the link and you’ll be taken straight to their website to start shopping. Easy.
