I've found products with the same exact ingredients as those from the I'm Fabulous and Organic Pharmacy site at a fraction of those prices...(well, maybe not the outlandish caviar serum but there's no science behind that as being especially special topically)
They're not hard to find either.

If spending more than you need to spend makes you feel like you're getting a better product or makes you feel better about yourself than that's fine for you to do.
But don't assume that everyone that doesn't just fell off the turnip truck. This site has a lot of savvy people.

I said this earlier, but my post was shipped by a moderator. So, I'm going to try to say it in a less direct and offensive manner. I think bigsmilebigdreams has her own agenda in pushing these exorbitantly priced items. Hopefully that doesn't get me banned. I think it's sort of relevant though if there are members with the agenda of getting other members to buy products they may be affiliated with. Because people are desperate to address their skin concerns, and when they are told there are these miracle products out there that "saved" someone's skin, they could be taken advantage of in their eagerness to turn things around. And this forum, as much as it's a place to share information and ideas, the members should also be able to rely on some level of protection from people misrepresenting themselves. Because some of us will put off paying bills to get a chance to cure their acne with a $400 serum. That's how much pain people are in.

I think you are spot on with your assessment. I was thinking the exact same thing! And let's not forget to add in the scare tactics either. Let's post a long list of chemicals & then tell people they will get cancer unless their products are 70% to 100% organic. Hmm...what company uses that slogan? Too bad you have to remortgage your house to buy an eye cream! I'm sorry but I'm not that dumb. Strange how I have found skincare lines that are natural & organic yet do not change $1,000 an ounce. So apparently all is not lost for civilization.

Agreed, Doodlebug. There's still hope for us mere mortals who don't want to spend our what is close to our monthly mortgage on a bottle of aloe vera gel and radish extract.

I do realize people spend what they can afford, but most people just want to feel confident in their skin. It's not a competition. Or at least, it shouldn't be.

Estée Lauder's Advanced Night Repair Serum has, I think, a well-deserved very good reputation.

Then, there's Alpha Gold, which also has a good reputation.


I agree that Estee Lauder's ANR is really lovely on the skin, the smell and the texture is perfect. And I also use it around my eyes.
But I don't know that it does all that much for the long run.

I investigated and used STRICVECTIN that pioneered Mexoryl 3000. Once again, I like the research behind it and use it religiously, but can't tell you what my skin would be like without these products because I have never done without.
