Mass Products V/s Expensive Products
Myth or fact? When it comes to beauty products, expensive brands work better than mass-market products.
MYTH. Mass lines make more money, so they can afford more research and development. Among the best: Unilever (which does Dove and Ponds), L'Oréal (Vichy and La Roche-Posay), and Johnson & Johnson (maker of Neutrogena and Aveeno, which has its own research institute). A recent study found that 80 percent of women who followed a skin care regimen with mass-market products showed fewer wrinkles and healthier skin than when they used pricier lines.
I could not find the study they had quoted.
I have been using Ponds & Neutrogena products & have found them to be quite good. I haven't used Clinique or other top line skin care products so I can't compare, but this news does make me happy.
Just means more savings for me. :-)
What do you think? Have any of you found this to be true.
