Where do we start with anti-ageing creams. Firstly, we should clarify that said creams typically claim to reduce the visual effects of ageing, not ageing itself (that would be a different kettle of fish).
The price of such creams varies as wildly as the ingredients. In extreme cases, there are products like La Mer that come in at a staggering $2400 per 500mL on some websites (pictured below). As a side note, La Mer moisturising cream did not score too well in our moisturiser tests, which highlights that price does not equal quality.
That aside, does anyone use these creams and do they feel that it works as intended. Is there any scientific basis to the anti-ageing or rejuventation claims? We’d love to here your thoughts and as always, we’ll hand out BS Buster badges for those who provide well-reasoned or well-evidenced answers.
