Maximum Moisture

Whilst pulling out my facial cream samples I fell upon MD Skincare's Maximum Moisture treatment. And I threw it out.

Why? Well, actually, the sample accompanied a book about the best products of 2007. The authors loved it. Paula Begoun thinks it is substandard in a world of superstandard formulas. And I thought it straight-up sucked. There is nothing that makes this any more moisturizing than a score of other products, in fact the extremely basic Cetaphil Lotion is more moisturizing than this. Also it smells really bad. Also it is REVOLTINGLY expensive. Good thing mine was a free sample.

Which brings to point: just because it was supposedly formulated by a dermatologist, does not mean it works any better. What does a doctor know that a beauty chemist doesn't?
