Skin care, is expensive better? & Fancy Friday linkup

Skin care, is expensive better? & Fancy Friday linkup

I am not a beauty expert at all and normally I do not write about it, but I still want to devote a bit of time to skin care for the aging skin. Namely about which facial products you should now choose for aging skin. Let it be clear that what I write here is my opinion and my experience. Maybe it will be helpful for someone. This is also not a sponsored post, in any way. This is my experience with facial care.

I have very sensitive skin and it has lost a bit of volume since the start of menopause. Since I was about 30 years old, I started using the more expensive creams. Lancaster, Clinique and Estée Lauder. Every time when I went to the perfumery, to buy a new stock, it was an attack on my wallet. And if it really helps or works, I think that’s fine. But I was never really satisfied with what those creams did for my skin. And every time after a few years my skin started to react violently or I got the feeling it didn’t do anything anymore. A few years ago I wondered if more expensive creams are indeed always better and I started to delve into skin care. On the search for new products.

What kind of skin care works for me

I knew it had to be a cream for the aging and very sensitive skin, and had to contain a SPF. And I didn’t want an expensive cream anymore. But also not a drugstore cream because my skin is way too sensitive for that. After much reading and googling, I decided to use Eucerin. Since I use this brand my skin has become much and much calmer. Less spotty, less red and fewer spots. Even my beautician noticed it. I use the hyaluron filler line with volume lift. Once my eye cream and serum were used up, I went to the pharmacy to get new ones and then took the wrong one, the one without the volume lift. I only found out after weeks because my stock hadn’t reached the bottom yet. I could see the difference in the lines from my nose to my mouth! Within  a week! Recently that serum needed replacing and I resumed the volume lift and within a few days I saw a difference. The lines were smoother! Now that is what we need. I am super happy with this facial care. Also, I like the fact a lot that it is much less expensive!

Immerse yourself in your skin care. It is really worth it.

I don’t want to say in this post that Eucerin is great for everyone. But what I do want to say is that it is really worthwhile to find out seriously what your skin needs and then google and find out which cream will work for you. Also find out what you want in a cream, find out which ingredients you want it to contain or not contain.  The most expensive product is certainly not the best. In fact, I think this cream does much more than all those ,,good,, expensive brands. You just want to see improvement when you use something. So google a lot, read a lot, read reviews and on that basis you can make a good choice for your skin care.my skin care productsFacial productsMy skin care

    The whole skin care thing, I agree, can get tricky. I have found that rosehip oil and snake cream are great for sun spots. I live in New Zealand, and no matter how care one is… we always end up with some sun spots. I also use a native plant made into a balm which increases collagen production, about every second evening. But I’m definitely going to have a hunt for Eurcerin, too.

    I definitely think that if you can spend money on skincare it is nice, however there are good brands out there that work that don’t cost an arm and an leg.

    Thank you for sharing this information. I try all sorts of beauty creams but I will admit that some of them I receive for free as my daughter works in the cosmetics field. I am very happy to learn about this particular product. I agree that the most expensive is not always the best. And I feel that applies to almost everything we buy.
    Have a wonderful weekend my friend.

    I think it doesn’t matter about price. So long as it’s got the highest SPF and it works for you, and that’s the key – works for you. Stick with it. xx

    Skincare, makeup and haircare products are all so individual…what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work as well for another. How fabulous that you’ve found your perfect match! I’ve been using Ole Henrickson for a couple of years now and really love it, especially the Truth Serum. Have a great weekend my friend!

    Interesting read Nancy to hear what works for you! I use NCN skincare, and am regimented about using Vit C and Retinol. I am trying GoPure, and am really liking the results, adding brightness to my skin. I agree, you don’t have to spend a fortune to find the right skincare for you.

    It can be tricky finding the right skincare, and I totally agree that when a cream’s expensive it automatically means it is any good. I’m currently using a cheap drugstore brand, but I’m due a new eye cream, and I’m thinking of giving Eucerin a go. Thanks for the tip, and I’ll let you know how I get on! xxx

    Nancy, this is such good advice. Price isn’t the most important thing, but as you say, it’s the ingredients and the formulation. I use a wide array of products. I tried the current line trending and it definitely wasn’t for me. It does pay to do your research and shop around.

    Thanks!

    Great post and so amazing as I’ve been thinking a lot about this subject. I can’t afford the expensive brands and have just recently looked at using much cheaper moisturisers recommended by a Guardian makeup journalist Sally Hughes. Here’s the link to her article

    I agree that just because something is expensive does not mean it works.

    I think my Mom uses this cream. In my family everyone has extremly sensitive skin. I currently use Oil of Olay and have since I was 15 but I’ve added an eye cream called Snoxin in the last 8 years. I am thinking about getting some professional advice from a dermatologist and may go with what they recommend to see if it is better for me. It won’t be cheap, I know that.

    Interesting post Nancy!

    Expensive does not mean better. Beauty products have a huge markup. What’s important for me is cruelty-free. I don’t buy from companies that test on animals.

    I think it depends on the ingredients in the product and how they source them. If they are using high quality ingredients that are more expensive to produce then it’s worth paying more. But if you are just paying a lot for the brand name then it’s probably not worth it!
