Skin care, with its ever-evolving technology and the subterfuge of insidious marketing campaigns, can become a confusing and expensive category. Without insider knowledge or the time and funds to do the field-testing on your own, it's sometimes easier to spend an uncomfortable amount for the tacit understanding that, hey, if it's this expensive, it must be pretty good.But that's not necessarily the case. There are plenty of affordable skin-care brands that are dead ringers for luxury products, at a fraction of the cost. It's no great secret that certain clinical heavy-hitters work, or that products sold for $30 can be made by the same cosmetics teams that work on $300 tubs of cream. And while sometimes it's worth it to splurge on beauty products, it doesn't automatically mean you're buying a better product.
Thankfully, most of what the Insider Picks team does is test new products to see which ones are worth the money and which ones you should skip.
