This article was originally published on the Guameijiang website and the “Guameijiang” official account. Please read in conjunction with the first edition of the mask series. The effect is better: mask pk cream essence. Take a look at the difference between a cheap mask and an expensive mask today, and fulfill the solemn promise in the first bullet. Before we start, let’s make a statement:
- Guami will only be responsible for grilling, not selling.
- The friends who sell facial masks saying that Guamei’s article cut their money: Some male readers and some male friends said that they started using masks after reading the article. Look, Guamei will close One window will open another door.
Starting, sit firmly. Gua Meijiang’s methodology: first find a cheap mask as a benchmark, and then choose 3 more expensive masks with very different prices from each other: Garnier, Coyan’s, and Aquamarine Mystery. Moreover, the functions of these 4 masks must be similar to be comparable, so choose a moisturizing and hydrating mask.
Baseline: alverde Ivide
To borrow the example I used before, alverde’s wild rose moisturizing mask. It may be the first time someone has seen Guameijiang, so I repeat: alverde is the own Naturkosmetik natural skin care brand of dm, Germany’s largest daily chemical supermarket. Cheap, not too cheap, and the sales volume in Germany is very representative. All active ingredients, that is, ingredients related to moisturizing, hydrating and conditioning the skin, are marked with watermelon color. Other excipients, such as those that maintain the stability of the solution, inhibit bacteria and do not grow hair, are marked in gray. If there are multiple functions, the first function shall prevail. Even if it’s okay, there are all the basic ingredients and moisturizing ingredients.
Comparison I-Lower mid-range: Garnier Garnier
Guamei will think that this first comparison is the most expensive facial mask sold in dm supermarket. I watched it around, and it should be regarded as this Garnier patch mask. By the way, Garnier is a brand under the L’Oreal Group. In January 2014, Garnier withdrew from the Chinese market. In the same month, L’Oréal acquired Meiji Mask. The strategic direction is good, it depends on how well it is implemented. However, Garnier sells well in Germany. This mask is one of the rare patch-type masks in Germany (see Gumeijiang Mask First). The back of the package also specifically states that “using the latest mask technology, ori Phenibut on sale ginated from Asia”. After reading the ingredient list, I don’t know if you and Guami will have the same feeling: there are more types of antibacterial agents than active ingredients…The price of Garnier is Ivide’s 4 times, all kinds of plant extracts and active ingredients are less than Ivide. What is the reason for the price? Look at it, besides the mask cloth, it should be chamomile extract. The skin care industry generally believes that chamomile “inhibits bacteria, calms nerves, and promotes wound healing.” Except for inhibiting bacteria, it’s very weak, don’t you think? Drinking boiled water can also “calm the nerves and promote wound healing.” Except for this “I am good, I am good, I am good” statement, no confirmatory scientific experiment can be found. That’s all, but there is one thing in the ingredient list that surprised me-parabens. The name is very long. It is paraben. It has a reputation as a fungicide and fungicidal agent. The debate about whether it is carcinogenic has not stopped for more than ten years. The manufacturers say it’s okay. One is because paraben has been used for so many years without any obvious accidents, and the other is because paraben is cheap and effective. To be fair, scientific experiments have not yet proven the direct connection between paraben and cancer, but some signs have been observed, such as trace amounts of paraben found in tumors. For example, paraben has estrogen-like properties. Sit down. The response of the EU regulatory authorities to this is that only some types of paraben are allowed and the dosage is strictly controlled. The EU currently allows the use of methyl/ethyl/propyl/butyl paraben in cosmetics. Of course, Garnier uses paraben types permitted by the EU. However, Guami will still have reservations about paraben. Let’s wait and see for another two years. There are no substitutes.
Comparison II-Upper mid-range: Kiehls Kiehl’s
Kiehl’s, I can see advertisements wherever I go recently, also here in Germany, even if it hits my gun. Although there is an overnight in the name, this mask needs to be wiped off, but it does not need to be washed. It is comparable to the previous two masks. I want to say one more thing about Carbomer in line 7. A very magical substance. If you add less than 1% of carbomer, the soup will turn into a gel:Those skin care products with gel texture, gel texture, all thanks to Kabo Hm. Although you may feel very “moisturizing”, carb Phenibut powder wholesale omer is actually just a kind of thing that adjusts the texture of the cream. It is neither a moisturizer nor an emollient (see the previous article on Moisturizing by Guami) , Has nothing to do with the moisturizing effect. It is only responsible for making the appearance of skin care products “beautiful as flowers.” Where is the Keyan family? Added some cool natural ingredients, Imperata chinensis root, poppy root, and fermented extract. But how effective these things are is another matter. In the European Union and China, plant extracts (the same for artificial synthetics) need to be registered and entered into the list before they can be used in skin care products. When registering, it is necessary to state what the efficacy of the extract is, but it is not necessary to cite scientific evidence-as long as it is proved that the ingredient is non-toxic and harmless to humans, it is not necessary to prove the effectiveness. The registered effects of plant extracts are basically “skin conditioners”-it is more obvious in the ingredient list of La Mer below. What is a “skin conditioner”? It is “to keep the skin in a good state” and “substances to make the skin feel good.” What is good? Not defined. Excuse me, can I be more ambiguous? Moreover, “skin conditioners” are not judged by scientific standards, but describe a subjective feeling. Suddenly it feels a lot like Chinese medicine…Anyway, it’s a credit to make people feel good. Also, don’t be fooled by the name “squalane” in the fourth line. How can it be extracted from shark liver? It is synthetic and versatile (meaning it is not expensive).
Comparison III Luxury: La Mer Aquamarine Mystery
Let’s not talk about anything else, just look at the complexity of the formula, I am convinced. The more raw materials, the more challenging the formula. With so many raw materials, it is necessary to ensure compatibility with each other and to try the optimal ratio of each substance. At least this is definitely not something that can be copied by copying a ready-made formula, and the workload is not small. La Mer is also different: the main ingredients are more adequate, and the auxiliary materials are less. For example, others may mainly rely on xanthan gum to achieve a viscous texture, while La Mer mainly relies on various seaweed extracts. However, it is a different matter whether each of these ingredients is useful. For example, seeing this broken clu Buy Phenibut Online ster of water, Guami will instantly become violent and want to chew the table: Flicker has no bottom line. Students who have never heard of broken clusters of water: Simply put, this theory believes that water molecules are in pieces and clusters and must be broken into individual molecules to facilitate skin absorption. The method of breaking is magnetization. I think of the magnetized cup used by grandpa…Image source: TaobaoThere is no scientific evidence to prove that this kind of broken cluster water is better absorbed. If you still have doubts and feel that it is better to be trusted than not, Guami will tell you a way to ensure that the water molecules are dispersed. Use hot steam: get a basin of hot water and put your face on top of the hot water. , Take a towel and cover it all over. After the water evaporates, it is guaranteed to be molecule by molecule. Image source: wikihowMany kinds of plant extracts are “skin conditioners”. As mentioned above, although there is no confirmatory effect, it does make people feel better. In addition, worthy of the name of the sea blue mystery, there are many kinds of seaweed extracts, but the registered effects are also “skin conditioners.” Guomei will especially pick up the “Golden Seaweed Extract” on line 36. This kind of separate brand is also used, it looks really good, the effect is definitely leveraged, right? If I call it “brown kelp”, would you still find it magical? Look at its English name: Laminaria is called Laminaria seaweed. It is a large brown seaweed-also known as kelp. Yes, it is the kelp we cook. “Golden seaweed” Laminaria Ochroleuca is one of 31 species under kelp. Why is it called “Golden”? Because it looks like this, it is actually called brown seaweed in botany (in addition to red seaweed, green seaweed, etc.). In addition to its nice name, “Golden Seaweed” has no recorded special effects compared to other seaweeds. By the way, when you see that there is no line 49, the mystery of Aquamarine that you admire also uses silicone oil. As I said earlier, silicone oil has been hacked by organization and premeditated. The silicone-free shampoo article. In order not to turn this mask article into a La Mer Tucao conference, let’s stop here today. If you want to know more, tell Guamei, you can consider writing a special article in the future. Checked the La Mer ingredient list for a day, and I decided to have kelp shreds and kelp stew for dinner…The last sentence Ren Yiyu, remember to look at the ingredient list next time you buy a mask.
