wow i was just going to start a post onthis topic glad i didn't. So lancome and chanel as "expensive" moisturizers wheni finish mine i'guess i'll try one of those. Any other moisturizers people love. I must say that i don't like cliniques dramatically different (normal one)moisturizer it has too much oil for me and makes me break out.

i agree with you lifeis, clinique's dramatically different moisturizer feels sticky on my skin.

I did a science fair project on moisturizers awile ago. and guess what i found? it doesnt matter if the moisturizer is a department store or drugstore brand. the whole point of the moisturizer is to make your skin feel nice temperarily, but it doesnt actually penetrate the skin to get rid of wrinkles. the only way you can prevent wrinkles with a moisturizer is by having the moisturizer have spf. so for you i would rec. a moisturizer with spf to use during the day, and a heavier but cheap cream to use during the night.

Ah, don't you just love this kind of findings? I mean, cheap or expensive moisturizers, it's always the same...

Yes, I believe that the big brand products are more expensive because they are high quality... However, in my opinion, they're too expensive... part of the money they cost is due to publicity.

What's so great about the Creme de la mer/Shiseido ? What effect does it have?
And what does everyone think about : Cliniques Dramatically Different Moistzrizer?

Yep, i love those kinds of findings . Im glad I did my project on moisturizers, I definetly learned a lot. Sometimes, the moisturizers will be more expensive b/c of packaging + publicity like you said.

Dear Leonie,

Sorry, I didn't explain why..
Okay let's see... the Shiseido is like this liquidy emulsion it is just fabulous. You know that dry feeling you get once you get out of the shower? Well this stuff rubbed onto your face just refreshes you and moisturizes sooo much better than any other kind of lotion. I just love the way it FEELS and smells on my face.

As for the creme de la mer...this is a much thicker moisturizer, and I love to use it as a base on my face before I go out. It gives that great glow/shine..better than any kind of foundation etc. Also, once you get used to the smell, you really can't switch to another kind.

Creme de la Mer is unique in so many ways...It cant really be compared to any other moisturizer/day cream...Cliniques Dramaticly different moisturizer is part of Cliniques 3 step program and is to be followed by a day cream...oh and I think they are both great

Dear Leonie,

If you go look on ebay, creme de la mer is cheaper than if you bought it full price. I have gotten1 oz for around $80 before. Right now, if you look on ebay, they range from $80-$95.

For the 2 oz, you can get one for around $140-$170.

I know it seems costly, but a little goes a LONG way...
