Are high-priced skin products a waste of money?
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.
But others argue the skincare industry is one giant scam. Women are terrified of aging and beauty brands know how to market expensive solutions to our fears.
The $170 billion beauty industry conspires to convince women that our fates depend on our looks which depend on what we spend. "No anti-wrinkle cream is worth $150," [says cosmetic chemist Perry Romanowski. ]"In fact, any product over $25 is a waste of money."
Still: there's billions of dollars worth of marketing campaigns spent to convince you that a wildly expensive moisturizer is a necessity, not a luxury. Caveat emptor!
skincare is a multi billion dollars industry, please be smart about what you buy, expensive does not ALWAYS mean effective. do you research, read reviews, read ingredients, get samples. dont waste your hard earned money on gimmicks and fancy marketing
