Re: What Skin Care "Category" do you Dislike?

Worked in R and D for a multi billion dollar company. Skin care products are nothing special. I used to call them "snake oil".

Re: What Skin Care "Category" do you Dislike?

I dislike ridiculous claims of products more than specific categories. I only use scientifically proven products. My 3 constants are BHA, Retin A, and SPF. I avoid oils (still have very oily skin at over 50), scrubs with abrasive particles, and fragrances in skin care. I tried a few gadgets, but they did nothing for me so I just use my hands or a gentle cleansing wipe.

Beauty "gadgets"

 

masks (I'm sure I am the odd man out on this one)

@ValentinaBon

I agree. I can't be bothered with masks either. Any result you get from them is transient. They're a waste of time and money, IMO.
