Expensive Vs Cheap Beauty Products
you may be surprised :)
So guess what?
Research has proven that not only do lavishly-priced wrinkle creams leave a big hole in the pocket, they apparently have the same effect as cheaper brands.
In a study conducted by Consumer Reports Magazine, which tested products ranging from US$19 to US$355, the ones at the high end of the scale does only a slightly better job at smoothening out fine lines.
The average depth of wrinkles were reduced by less than 10 per cent, which is an improveent that they say is barely visible unless viewed with a microscope.
To be fair, one fault with the study is that the sample size is a bit too small for women to head straight to the nearest store to buy a tube of cheap and good anti-wrinkle cream.
Personal opinion. I think that this report is probably true to a certain extent. Chances are that if you've been blessed with good skin you don't really need much maintainence if you have been leading a healthy life. But then again, like what has been said, the report may be flawed because it was done on a relatively smal scale of about a few hundred people.
So my suggestion is that if you can afford it and you think it's not very much of a bigger deal to buy more upmarket beauty products then go ahead since it doesn't harm you in any way. It'll only do you better in fact, albeit minimally haha, at least when people use a microscope they think you're prettier
Otherwise if like the rest of us normal beings it actually needs quite a bit of an effort to actually save up to fork out money for that expensive beauty product, i think we can turn to a cheaper alternative first and see what happens. Who knows, you may actually be in a for a surprise
What do you think?
