People have talked about how they've heard rumors about how Lancome and L'Oreal products are the same since they are owned by the same company. I just wanted to add that it is true most of the time actually. A friend of mine used to work for L'Oreal, and he said that for a lot of the products (such as some face cream, lipsticks, etc.) they made, they literally poured the first half into a Lancome bottle and the other half into a L'Oreal bottle. This goes for a lot of the products from their makeup line as well as their skincare line. Needless to say, I'm probably never going to buy Lancome again, and of course, the only drugstore brand I will buy is L'Oreal.
