Just now ....while browsing about imedeen.... i found this interesting website.... for beauty conscious.... i think you should read this....

While we had mentioned this in one of our Beauty Brains polls, we never discussed the full story. According to a study done by Consumer Reports, you are wasting your money if you buy expensive wrinkle reducing face creams. According to CR, there is no connection between price and effectiveness.
Of course, it’s not surprising to the Beauty Brains. Since we know the raw materials that go into both ultra expensive and ultra cheap beauty products, we can sincerely report retail price doesn’t always reflect formula quality.
Most interesting about the study was the conclusion that no cream was noticeably effective. Some had slight improvements but none were deemed worth it. In lab studies, CR found the most effective product was Olay Regenerist (Enhancing Lotion, Perfecting Cream and Daily Regenerating Serum).
One surprise was a $335 product scored among the lowest of all the products tried.
The full list (in order of performance) is as follows.

1. Olay Regnerist : $57
2. Lancome Paris Renergie: $176
