SKIN PRODUCTS
Hello - I use LIKE SILK moisturiser, face wash and night cream. The reason I use this product is because they do not test on animals. I would like to know if they are as effective as products like Garnier, Clinique, ROC etc. I know Like Silk products are much cheaper than the products I mention above, and therefore I'm not sure if they are as effective, or does price not really matter. I know INNOXA, Endocil and Avon do not test on animals, but I don't want to spend more money on these products if Like Silk does the same job.
I'm 31 this year, and really getting worried that I might use the wrong skin care products and will end up looking like a prune when I'm 50! The Like Silk products have sunscreen in, and I don't have any problems with my skin and I've been using it for the past 4 years. Please give me advice!!! THANK YOU!

I am not aware of any studies that compare the products that you mention. Find a product that suits your skin and your pocket. I moisturizer and sunscreen with SPF of at least 20 is beneficial.
