“You only pay for the brand name and the fantastic packaging.” Some people, particularly those who buy inexpensive items, believe this is the case when you buy high-end skin care products for your skin. For them, even the low-priced ones can deliver good results. This may be true in some instances, but high-end skin care products are excellent in their own ways. Continue your read.
Exfoliating and moisturizing
What should you focus on when buying products for your skin? Exfoliating and moisturizing as the former does 80% of the work and the latter 20%. These are the two things that will make your $50 or $100 spending worthy. Inexpensive exfoliators may cause tiny cuts on your face because of their square-shaped granules. Bacteria may get into your face because of these small cuts. A perfect exfoliator is the one that gives a gritty feel. On the other hand, the more effective your moisturizer is, the less likely for your skin to age. Therefore, spending on high-end skin care products is investing for the ‘future’ of your face. You do not want fine lines and others to appear early on your skin, right?
Constant ‘spa visit’
The costly price tags do not only comprise the manufacturers’ expenses on bottles and branding but also their attempt to offer users a unique spa experience at home. It’s like giving you a constant spa visit – at a much lesser cost. The day and night ritual becomes relaxing and magical because of the lightweight formula, scent, texture (more fluid) and no-leftover feel. This spa-at-home experience will make you feel comfortable spending for high-end skin care products.
Scientific and market research
Popular and respectable brands invest time and money in huge scientific and market research to make sure they consistently come out with highly-efficient products and to protect their good reputation. This gives you an assurance that your skin is safe with their merchandise. Yes, safety and value have a tag price. Make no mistake; independent brands also perform research, but this may be limited to raw materials.
The overall cost of the ingredients contributes to a product’s final tag price. Active ingredients work your skin to create your desired effect; however, there are many other components to help these active ingredients go through the skin or to preserve the skin care product. But the cost of these ingredients varies. If they are rare or are difficult and costly to create or blend in the laboratory, you can be sure the price tag of the product that includes these active ingredients will be expensive. Add in the exclusivity of the formula to that brand and you can be sure that the end product will cost higher.
High-end skin care products are also worth the splurge. However, for any item that you choose to buy, make an effort to test your skin first to know how it will react before splurging. If a free item or tester kit is available, grab this first to check if it’s suitable for your skin needs.
