5 Cult Beauty Products Worth Every Penny (and 5 That Aren’t)
When it comes down to the reasons why we buy certain products, it oftentimes has something to do with the hype surrounding them. When our favorite celebrity or a circle of friends extols the virtues of a lipstick or a moisturizer, we're that much more likely to go out and buy it. There are plenty of cult beauty products out there that are widely rumored to be the best on the market, but which ones are actually worth our money, and which ones are overrated? Here's what we have to say on the matter.
Worth It: Mason Pearson
Why spend $100+ on something as simple as a hair brush when you could pick one up at the drugstore for under $5? We get it—a fancy hair brush is a hard sell, but if you have a bit of disposable income and strong feelings about having great hair, a classic Mason Pearson brush is far from the worst way to spend it. The boar bristles gently massage the scalp for overall good hair health, and anyone who's ever owned a brush from the brand's wide selection can attest to the fact that they last for years, much unlike the $7 incarnation that cracked in half in the shower last week.
