Do we review specific products suggested by readers in blog questions?

Do we review specific products suggested by readers in blog questions? And if I send you some, would you please review?

Dear Readers and Collegues…….I don’t do this, except very rarely, for one really good reason.    Many companies now have in house or contracted social media and “web specialists.”   Part of their job is to get their companies’ products mentioned as frequently as possible in web dialogues and blogs.  It’s impossible to tell them (for us) from real users asking real questions.

So unless……..there truly is some evidence independently of a product being a game changer, I don’t review them when asked in this blog.   Remember too that there really are very few real breakthroughs on the product front and most products are 90% marketing.     Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
