Jamie Lee Curtis says all those expensive skin creams are a scam

Is this something your husband has said to you more than once? You scrimp and save so you can get that special cream you're convinced will work wonders and then --- were you satisfied with the result?

Jamie Lee Curtis wasn't.

“I spent $800 on a big jar of a cream. It didn’t do anything! It doesn’t do anything! The truth of the matter is, it doesn’t do anything for you. It’s a scam to make money.”

So what does she use instead?

"You ready? It’s going to shake you to your core. Sea Breeze and Nivea. Water and sleep. Sea Breaze is that astringent. I’ve been using that my whole life." 

If you're skin is on the dry side you probably never use astringent, but that Nivea is some seriously good stuff. It's the one people all over the globe swear by.

Okay, let's get real for a minute. I used to work for a major beauty company, one that sells skincare at the department store as well as the drugstore and one thing I learned is that the really expensive stuff was basically the same as the drugstore version, just with a tweak or two. The rest of the difference was marketing.

So I think Jamie's got our backs on this one. Save yourself some cash and head to CVS.
