There are lots of questions that first-time buyers and skincare aficionados alike tackle. The biggest, of course, is: does skincare work?
Do face creams work in the ways we want them to - and if so, how? Does anti wrinkle cream really work to reduce the signs of aging? Do face serums work to make our skin brighter, plumper, and more radiant?
