Girls, How much are you spending on your daily skin care routine? If like me you spend ages in Shoppers pondering these purchases, this post should simplify the process. A dedicated fan of Pond’s Cream, I have routinely been swayed to more expensive products believing that more money makes a better product.
Recently a before and after test was preformed by Nicolas Miedzianowski-Sinclair, of The Cosmetic Imaging Studio – which provides 3D images for people considering cosmetic procedures, using a Visia machine (this machine, was developed by NASA to test astronauts’ skin). The test involved a simple scan the of face to see which moisturizer was more effective regarding lines and wrinkles, pore size, redness, hydration etc.
A lady (pictured below) used the Nivea creme ($10.00 for 200mls) on one side of her face & Creme de la Mer (prices range from$160.00 – $450.00) on the other, for one month. Which do you think performed better??
According to the dermatologist’s scans, Nivea has performed best. The scans show the left-hand side of the face – where Nivea was – has retained better hydration than its rival. Not only this, but facial redness redness has reduced and some of the fine lines around the eyes have disappeared.
I am not shocked that the budget Nivea creme was better for the skin! Apparently Kate Winslet & Joan Collins both use this Nivea creme. Very interesting results given that us girls spend on average £18,000 on our faces in a lifetime!
Would this convince you try a budget moisturizer? Try it and let us know your thoughts?
