Perhap you may like to try a new skin care products from Switzerland that have come into the market. I am sure that you will like it as many of my friends love it after trying it.

Why do you all use such expensive products when the brands in the supermarkets do the same job for a fraction of the price (Olay, Pond's etc).
I know that because I've seen clinical test results from independent research labs, it's part of my job, although I stress I don't work for a cosmetics company, and have no vested interest in what you purchase.
The Creme de la Mer's of the world are just ripping you off. There is the 'image' value of course, maybe that's what you're looking for?
But it's some price to pay. Do you get it out of your handbag at every opportunity to make it worthwhile, or do you have friends come into your bedroom and see it on your dresser, enabling you to show off? I guess, happiness is worth it, but does it make you happy? Isn't there something else you could spend your money on, fashion, accessories, savings for the future etc.? haha no I'm not a financial advisor either :)

From a man's perspective, I'm really curious...

La Prairie's Caviar series is my choice at the moment, the serum just makes your skin glow. But after it finishes, I'm switching to La Mer.. just bought the refining facial with diamond powder, it exfoliates without drying the skin, wonderful!

i've tried those that you mentioned (Olays, Ponds, Loreal etc), and they don't actually do the same or feel anywhere near it.

Besides, its worth the money, rather than using 3 jars of loreal a month, my 50ml La Prairie is lasting me more than 6 weeks now (same size as the other brands...) The clinical papers can say what they want, but its really feels different on the skin.

whats the point of having other fashion/ beauty accessories when your skin is dull & dry & sallow, beauty should be from within...

Men will never understand.. sigh.. :P

SK-II

Postby here_i_am » Wed, 17 Sep 2008 6:05 am

Best product in the market. Uses an ingredient called Pitera is from plants so its natural on the skin. I've been using it for a while now, and I'm happy with the way my skin feels. I know a guy who had bad acne problems he couldnt get rid of despite paying a lot for treatments. In the end, he tried SK-II and his skin smoothened out.

lol, i agree :) i dun understand either, but my female frens assure me there's a diff... i use jergens on my face, $10/bottle. the old packaging for the age-defying jergens used to say "gentle enough for the face", and so i did :D
