Every major company has a star product that has done so well that it usually sets them apart and catapults them into a big name and brand.
These products can be the oldest ones on the market as people get quite attached to them.
The formulas usually stay the same from the day that they are formulated to 20 years down the track and are still being sold.
I just wanted to name a few of these products that are still being sold and promoted, and to give my personal opinion on whether I believe they are worth the hype, or just too old and need a formula make over.
Here they are…
3. Shiseido – eudermine revitalising essence
This product is an extremely old one and has been sold by shiseido for many years.
It is quite expensive as well, and consists of : water, alcohol, some basic emollients, fragrance, castor oil and…
That’s about it really.
I would save your money and spend it on a well formulated toner else where.
2. Clarin’s beauty flash balm
This product is something I was eager to try after my friends had been telling me so much about it.
And it is their star product, so it must be good.. Right?
This product is basically: water, rice starch, some emollients, fragrance, one type of algae and a bunch of preservatives.
This product puzzles me to why it is so popular.
1. Clinique dramatically different moisturising lotion
This product I had high hopes for! I am also quite a big fan of clinique as they formulate products very well and leave out the fragrance all the time.
This product wasn’t what I was expecting tho.. And not quite “dramatically different” to any other supermarket products on sale.
This product consists of: water, sesame oil, lanolin, alcohol and preservatives.
This product Isn’t as expensive as the other ones I have mentioned but it costs enough for me to not bother purchasing it.
So next time a company starts telling you “we sell 100 of these a minute!” That could mean that the product is just hype and it actually won’t do anything for your skin!
Check the ingredients.
