Do Women Need to Spend a Fortune on Good, Effective Skincare?

Here’s a scenario; You’re on the hunt for a skin cream and find yourself debating about purchasing one at the drugstore. You go back and forth in your head about whether or not you think this affordable product could actually work. You think: this product is way cheaper than that luxury brand skin cream. It can’t possibly work to the same level of the more expensive one, right?

I never really thought about it, but the price of a product can have a big influence on whether or not someone purchases a product. 

How many of you have put back the drugstore skin cream only to shell out the crazy amount of money to get the more expensive products? If you’re like me you tell yourself and have been conditioned to believe that if something is more expensive it’s going to give you more results or be better quality or last longer, etc etc. 

I’m hoping that I am not the only one who has had this internal conflict with one self when it comes to purchasing skin care at the drugstore. With that being said, maybe the results of a study that was done at the Good Housekeeping Institute will convince myself and others going forward to go for the drugstore product not thinking it’s not up to par based on the price.

Specifically though, I’m talking about Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream – one of those products where you don’t need to second guess it just because it’s being sold at an affordable price. Maybe my experience won’t be the deciding factor for you, but the results of an independent study by the Good Housekeeping Institute has some intriguing results that just may open your eyes!

The Results

At the Good Housekeeping Institute, GHI’s engineers, scientists and other experts test products and evaluate them based on performance, ease of use, safety, durability and design. This year, GHI tested the latest Micro-Sculpting Cream formula, a Good Housekeeping seal holder, found online for just $26.99, against 10 prestige creams found in most department stores. These ranged in price from $26-$440.

The GHI’s Beauty Lab conducted clinical and blinded consumer studies where scientists collected more than 10,000 hydration measurements and Olay rose to the top! Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is not only an anti-aging cream, but it’s a moisturizing and plumping powerhouse; hydration is one of the key benefits for younger women seeking preventative anti-aging measures. It’s the Olay goal to help today’s woman take their anti-aging destiny into their own hands without paying a premium!

This study is helpful for me because just recently in the past year, I have really dived deeper into solidifying a skin care routine that works for me! I’m still in the process of finding the right products, but a face moisturizer is a product that I use twice a day! Especially at age 30, I’m starting to see signs of aging (eeek!) and I know that the earlier the better when it comes to anti-aging prevention! 

The skin care industry is constantly evolving and it’s important that I find a product, like Olay’s Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream, that is multi-purpose, but most importantly gives me the results I want. Olay has introduced a formula that after just one day reduces the appearance of lines, boosts hydration and brightness and after four weeks reduces the look of up to 10 years of wrinkles!  

Have you tried Olay’s Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream yet?

      I need to use more Olay products! Especially after learning from this study that an affordable price doesn’t mean it’s a bad product.

    You are definitely not alone! I look at drugstore skincare and have this constant battle with myself over buying anything because I’ve always been told you get what you pay for and you’re paying for the technology and science in high end skin care… I’ve recently bought some products which are slightly cheaper and I’ve been pretty impressed and I’ve heard such great things about Olay though, so I’m definitely going to try this out!!

      yes, your comment is exactly the issue I have constantly, but thankfully these results shined a new light on it and will try and get over that stigma!

    I’m like you plus I didn’t even THINK about my skin until I was older and it was too late! I can only imagine how nice my skin would be if I had started using products when I was younger!

      Awww, I think you have fabulous skin, but yeah, I’m in the same boat. I feel like it’s better to start sooner than later, but I should have really listened and started even YOUNGER.
