I’m of the school where beauty products don’t have to cost an arm and a leg to be effective. In fact, Vaseline is one of my most handy and oft used skincare products. (Although now I can't take a look at it without thinking of Tyra's infamous Vaseline endorsement on her talk show.)
It’s always a puzzle why lower-end skincare products often get discriminated. Is it because bigger brands have the money for marketing? Take for example, Australian brand Sukin. Their hand cream is priced much lower than another more well-known brand, Jurlique, but in terms of effectiveness, are about the same. If you’re in the mood to try something new, give Sukin’s new Antioxidant Eye Serum a shot. Containing soothing aloe vera, cucumber and burdock, the serum aims to reduce puffiness and dehydration. Rose hip, evening primrose and borage oils in the serum target fine lines and repair damaged skin cells surrounding the delicate eye area.
