Is there any difference between cheap and expensive face creams?
When I was a teenager, my mother taught me to look after my skin. She bought me face creams, many different brands, from the most expensive on the shelf to the cheaper ones found in supermarkets.
We have both tried several different options.
I have used Estée Laude creams religiously, Elizabeth Arden, and L’Oreal. When I was fending for myself and finances were strained, I switched to the supermarket brands such as Olay, and Nivea, waiting in the back of my mind, for my skin to fall apart-It never did. In fact, after 25 years of chopping and changing products, this is what I have found.
THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE!- In my opinion of course.
No matter what I used, the condition of my skin remained the same.
Sure, some of them felt ‘nicer’ on my face than others. Less greasy, thinner, thicker, etc but as far as all the magical formula’s that claim to reduce the effects of ageing goes, I have never noticed a marked difference between any of them over time.
So what determines how old you look?
Three things only:
1. Environmental factors… Sun exposure, smoking, poor nutrition, lack of sleep, dehydration
3. Age (of course!)
To me, spending $400-00 or $8-00 on a 50 ml bottle of face cream, had no noticeable impact on the age of my face.
Having said that, in complete contradiction to what I have just said, there IS one product that has actually made a daily noticeable difference to me!
It was a secret passed on to me by a patient believe it or not. She had the most magnificent skin I had ever seen, looking 20 years younger than her biological age of 70.
I now use this product religiously, and I must say, it makes a difference-
