This cosmetic chemist says you need to do your research and look for actual testing that proves products are worth the money—but that many of them are.

"Look for evidence that a product works,” de Lemos says. “If I look at a brand like Murad, Perricone MD, or SkinMedica that actually puts forth the effort to create clinical tests, and shows me evidence that their product actually works, then at least I know I’m buying something that the company put money into proving.” So before investing in a super-luxe product, take the time to do your research.

There are also ways to take care of your face without splurging on a ton of expensive products. Why waste money?
