High end vs drugstore skincare, which is worth it? part 2

This is a continuation of the Is it worth it? Skincare edition part 1 in which I share my opinions on which skincare products I think are worth splurging on and which aren’t. This time I’ll talk about toners, serums, moisturizers, and eye cream.

Yay! I love your product reviews. It's so helpful... especially for me, someone who doesn't know much  on this subject. But I do agree... nightly moisturizers are a must! Thanks for all the recommendations. :D

I personally use toners, though I haven't always in the past. I like the tingly feeling you get from  ?t?h?e? ?a?l?c?o?h?o?l? ?b?u?r?n?  from them--it makes me feel clean. xD I'd give them two hearts.

And four hearts for serums! I like Lancôme and Estée Lauder. I'm neutral with moisturizers/creams and eyecreams. I might spend a little more on night creams, but for day creams, I figured that as long as it has good SPF protection I shouldn't fret too much about anything else.

Looking forward to the makeup edition! :)

I say splurge on Shiseido products! More people use, more work for me! :P

I use toners, who doesn't? Being someone who's not complex with skincare I even think that's one of the most important items. I don't use serums, but maybe now I should reconsider with that health benefit - didn't know that! One thing I don't use is moisturizer, because my skin is always so moist even after I use a mask to dry it out.

I think I'd give dark spot correctors one heart. They never work. -/_-

I always used a moisturizer during the day or any time that I was putting on makeup. I never thought about it being so important to put it on during the night. I guess when I do put it on during the night, I do know a difference during the day.

Great tips! Love them all.
