The concentration of active ingredients is generally greater than what you can find over the counter, and they have been tested to be effective on the skin, hence there are greater results with such skincare. This type of skincare is known to offer both medicinal and cosmetic benefits mixed with science to deliver results that are documentable and sustainable. Brands like PCA, Skinceuticals, Epionce, Jan Marini and SkinMedica.
Over-the-counter products are those you find at the drugstore, big box stores, and places like Ulta and Sephora. The biggest difference is that they aren't FDA approved and haven't really been proven to work, which means any money you spend on them is a gamble.
Now, we think there is a place for everything in the market so limit your over-the-counter purchases for things that you're not looking to gain major results from like eyeliner and lipstick.
When you need a product to deliver, going with something that has a track record and case studies is best.
Over-the-counter brands that are popular in the anti-aging area are Oil of Olay, Bliss, Estee Lauder, Neutrogena, etc.
The FDA also stipulates that medical-grade skincare products have a 99% concentration of active ingredients, which is much higher than would be found in any over-the-counter products. With a 99% concentration of active ingredients, the results and ingredients that are claimed are actually what you're getting. As opposed to non-FDA-approved products where the stipulations are a lot more lenient.
If you're going to spend your money, make sure it's working for you. If you're looking for an effective eye cream then spend your money on a medical-grade option instead of one close to the same price at CVS. A lot of times because of the high concentration you don't have to use as much making it last much longer. Double bonus!
