There are so many products out there in the market, how do you know what to buy? Some reads on-line reviews. Some smells the products. Some touches the products. Some buys the products because of the brand name. Some buys products because they seem to work (yes, seem to work as honestly if there is a cosmetic product that truly works miracles, it’s a DRUG). Most importantly, the cosmetic companies will never want to lose you after only selling you one jar of miracle to cure all! This is also why all cosmetic companies when they make claims, they have to have the “softening” words of “appeared” younger, fine lines “seemed” diminished, as they do not want FDA to bust them even if the product truly delivers the drug-like claims. This article shares what I use as a cosmetic chemist as cosmetic chemists know products!
Being a cosmetic chemist and in the beauty industry, I have the luxury of using thousands of products in a day literally. Many of the products are just used once and gathered dust in the competitive review cabinet. Few of them will get a purchase or even re-purchase from me. So, read-on to find out what products get my Cosmetic Chemist’s Beauty Awards. These are my Must-Have Skin Care Products- Seriously you will never find them EMPTY in my beauty case:
Beauty should not be complicated. Did you notice I don’t even mention using a moisturizer? I have oily skin so I use moisturizer as needed. In Summer, I use Grand Central Beauty Skin Perfecting Serum. In Winter, I may add on Clinique Repair Wear night cream. We lose moisture at night so it is important to keep the skin hydrated especially if you are ‘dry’.
Beauty is individual. What works for me may not work for you but being a cosmetic chemist, at least I know what my necessities in my skin care regimen are. Care to share what is your skin care regimen or if you have any skin care or beauty questions, please feel free to ask.
