British online publication, FEMAIL decided to find out by making its own face cream from basic ingredients costing under £3 (R50) and pitting it against creams priced up to £300 (R5 000), in a blind trial.
The testers were Dr David Fenton, consultant dermatologist at St John’s Institute of Dermatology, London, and cosmetologist Colette Haydon. The results were astonishing.
