My cupboards are stuffed full of half-used lotions and potions which haven't quite lived up to their own promises and I dread to think how much they all cost combined.
You may look at certain price tags and grimace at the idea of spending so much like I do, but I've had a chat with Pure Beauty to find out whether expensive creams really are worth it or not.
Some budget options may claim to contain premium ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid or essential oils, but they'll often contain the very bare minimum to keep costs down, making them far less potent in the long run.
Budget options will often use cheaper alternatives to certain ingredients, or omit them altogether, which means that they won't be as effective, absorb as well or last as long.
More expensive brands also have more money to pour into the development of their products, which means that new and innovative products such as micellar oils and waters will be available.
For instance, the people at Decleor are well aware of how difficult it can be to find suitable products during pregnancy, so ALL Decleor Perfect Sculpt products have been extensively tested both in-vitro and ex-vitro and have the full approval of gynaecologists after rigorous trials on pregnant women.
This means that you can still enjoy a full beauty regime without having to worry about negative effects of ingredients which could harm you or your baby.
