A skin care product review is very valuable – maybe – depending on who is doing the review. But what’s even better than a review is being able to evaluate skin care products for yourself. Because the truth is that many companies these days claim to be a natural skin care manufacturers because ‘natural’ and ‘green’ are hot buzzwords these days and many claims are made that simply aren’t true.
For example, let’s look at the ad below:
At $59.95 per ounce, this isn’t cheap stuff. And the woman in the second picture looks great, right? Her skin is definitely less red and her wrinkles less noticeable. But a couple of observations:
1. In the second picture she has a big smile. That immediately makes us feel better and is more inviting.
2. Notice her hair line. Her bangs are identical. How likely is that since the picture is supposedly taken many days or weeks later when her complexion supposedly has had time to heal itself?
3. “But”, you say, “her complexion looks so much nicer!” Sure it does – but with my trusty image editing software I could make those changes, and I’m just not that good at image editing. I remember a comment by Cindy Crawford who said “Even I don’t look like Cindy Crawford …” until the makeup artists and photographers worked their magic.
Still, the product might truly be as wonderful as the manufacturerer claims – but it has one fatal flaw: it has no list of ingredients! So …
SKIN CARE PRODUCT REVIEW RULE #1: Never, NEVER buy a product if you don’t know what’s in it!!!
Be sceptical of every skin care product review until you know the ingredients and have made a careful judgment.
