I received this link from a Arbonneanonymous poster. Check it out! It provides a good realistic point of view.
You will also notice that the author of the site has her own skin care line. Personally, I think good skin care can be achieved without spending a whole lot of money so I am definitely not telling you to go to this site and buy her products. But I suspect that some of you may prefer to purchase expensive products for your own reasons; maybe you just feel more motivated to take care of your skin when you've spent a lot of money on products. I've been there!
