This year we are launching YouTube channel for Truth In Aging. Every week, we'll be uploading new content: product reviews, how tos, or just things that seem interesting. We are kicking off with our new regular item: Product twins: exposing brands that charge more for the exact same product that you can buy more cheaply under another name. In the video, Marta looks at Skinceuticals CE Ferulic and its identical twin by CSS. Would you pay $100 for Skinceuticals?

For more product twins, read Are you paying double for the exact same cosmetic?

    Whatever happened to your Product Twin Tuesday? Such a great idea. Would love to see more product comparisons.

    I am so glad I found your site. I have spent too much money on products that make claims they cannot fulfill. I have found that the less expensive products generally work rather well. I would really like to be considered to test your "twin" products. I consider myself objective and love doing critiques.

    Hi Naomi, now that you come to mention it there are several ingredients here that are a cause for concern. First is <a href="" rel="nofollow">ethoxydiglycol</a> While the industry body, the CIR found it to be none toxic, it generally contains ether, associated with cancer and allergic reactions.<a href="" rel="nofollow">Propylene glycol</a> is a potential irritant. The preservative <a href="" rel="nofollow">phenoxyethanol</a> is an irritant and potential neurotoxin and <a href="" rel="nofollow">triethanolamine</a> may cause allergic reactions.
