Bewildered and confused by the number of skin care and cosmetic products on the shelves? We take you through what you really need to know.
Trying to establish which skin care routine works best for you can be a costly – and often frustrating – exercise. The make-up, cosmetics and skin care sector spends up big to convince you that various products will make you look younger, feel firmer and do everything but make you breakfast in the morning! But is it all just clever marketing? Whether you're looking for an effective acne treatment or the best cruelty-free cosmetics, we help you wade through the waffle to find what works for you.
It's a favourite pastime of our beauty experts to stop you shelling out the big bucks for claims that are basically bunkum. Their clinically-proven recommendations are words you know you can trust, and will help you get the younger, firmer looking skin you've dreamt of in less than six weeks!
