We know it can be a bit confuscating trying to figure out how the blog works so we’ve answered a few of the most Frequently Asked Questions on this page.

Where’s the Swap Siopa?
Right here on the forums: Go to Swap Siopa

What’s the difference between the blog and an ordinary website? works like an interactive website – that means you can comment and leave your own opinions after every post (article). And some posts are written just for you to chat and give your opinions – like the Blather, Rate Its and Polls for example.

How do I leave a comment?

Go to the Leave A Reply box under every post and say what’s on your mind. You’ll have to create a user name and enter your email address (don’t worry this won’t be seen by anyone). The first time you comment you’ll have to wait a bit as it will go into moderation. But this won’t take long and after the first time your comments will fly up in real time! (NOTE: using a fake email address means your comments go straight to spam)

We love comments at – so don’t be shy about leaving one!

What’s the Blather?

The Blather is a daily post and it’s a place where you can go to talk about anything at all you like. Everything from makeup, men and motors to gossip and clothes is discussed here. Just read a couple of Blathers and you’ll soon get the gist of it! It’s a great place to ask a beauty question too. Introduce yourself so that everyone knows it’s your first time and you’re away. Go on, pop your Blather cherry!

I only see one page of posts – how do I look at older ones? is updated about six times a day and sometimes it can be hard to keep up. Scroll down to the end of the page and on the left hand side you’ll see a link to Older Posts. Click on it to see the previous entries – and keep going and reading further back. You can use the Search box or the Category links to look through specific areas of interest too.

For example putting the word “foundation” into the search box will bring back all our reviews of the latest and greatest foundations – we’ve tried them all! And you’ll see what everyone else thinks of them too by reading the comments.

Or try searching for a phrase like “dry skin” and see what you get back. We have tens of thousands of articles on every aspect of beauty. You can also do an Advanced Search to make your search more specific.
