The Beauty Myth: Expensive Skincare Products Are Better Than Cheap Ones

Verdict: False
Expensive Skincare Products Are Better Than Cheap Ones
There are expensive skincare products that are highly effective and there are those that are, quite frankly, s**t. The truth is, the effectiveness of a product depends on the ingredients and formulations used and, both expensive and affordable products can be well formulated and contain beneficial ingredients. Furthermore, certain products can work well for some people but not for others. So a product's effectiveness is also dependent on individual skin types and skincare desires.

Now, regardless of cost, you should ask the following questions when considering purchasing any skincare product:
  • Does it suit your skin type?
  • Will it address your skin concern?
  • Is it making any claims? If so, are there any trails to support those claims?
  • Does it contain any harmful ingredients?
  • Is is packed full of beneficial ingredients?
  • Has it received good reviews?

And it is the answers to these questions that will indicate whether or not a product will work for you - not the price tag!
