Dr. Bruce Katz was featured in an Insider article about Clinique versus Trader Joe's skincare.
I put Trader Joe's $9 and Clinique's $60 gel moisturizer to the test, and I'd only buy the dupe again
Dermatologist Bruce Katz told Insider both moisturizers could be beneficial to anyone with dry or aging skin, but he had a preference.
"While these two moisturizers have similar ingredients with antioxidants in them, the Trader Joe's product is superior for one major reason," he said. "It has green tea in it."
Katz said that the Clinique moisturizer has antioxidants that are good for the skin like vitamins C and E. But the green tea in the Trader Joe's moisturizer makes it much more potent.
"The green tea makes it more effective in neutralizing free radicals that damage the skin," he told Insider.
