Beauty Shouldn't Hurt (your pocketbook)


Please tell me I am that I am not the only person to fall for the hype. I have been on more auto-ships than I care to admit. I have spent hundreds (thousands? shhhh) of dollars on creams, potions & lotions promising me to erase the wrinkles.


I fell hard. I watched the infomercial at 2:00 am, and pulled out my plastic. SURELY paying $69.95 for this miracle-in-a-bottle was going to turn me into a Greek Goddess, and people would stop me on the street to comment on my beautiful skin.


NOPE.


The only head-turning I got was from my dog wondering why I was yelling after I returned from the mailbox after receiving ANOTHER shipment of the 3-month supply, which I again forgot to cancel.


So I ask myself. Are these expensive brands REALLY that much better?


What makes skin care so ridiculously expensive? Well, aside from the selling power behind a luxury brand name, celebrity spokesperson or instagram influencer, these skincare lines boast trendy ingredients such as gold, platinum and even caviar. They have the impressive packaging and the beautiful models.



Is that any excuse for the whopping prices of face cream?


While many of these pricey products seem to work according to their fans, resentment over high prices can sometimes undermine their success. For example, Chanel's much-hyped Sublimage Essential Regenerating Cream was once called "a waste of time" that was "most certainly not worth even close to the price" despite pleasant reviews that called it a "miracle cream." Ouch.
