When in doubt what to choose, buy baby products. This is a simple rule of thumb I have resorted to when I have had any doubt choosing between skin-care products.
Let's take a baby moisturizer. And compare that with a normal adult moisturizer.
A typical baby product might work better on your skin because it wouldn't strip the skin of it's natural oils. As [babies are prone to skin issues](https://naturesbaby.com/blogs/trusty-tips/7-common-skin-and-hair-issues-in-babies), so baby products are formulated in such a way that they protect and nourish even the most delicate of skin. Owing to the increased sensitivity of baby skin, they'll usually be free of harsh chemicals, fragnances and other irritating ingredients.
And most of the baby products are multi-purpose. They are gentle, non-irritating and versatile.
This is just a general thumb rule to help decide between two products when in doubt.[^1]
[^1]: Another thumb rule which I use most often is the [[An Expert Called Lindy |Lindy Effect:]] Lindy effect is the idea that the longer something has survived, the longer you should expect it to continue. It suggests that time-tested practices or ideas are more reliable and likely to endure. To apply the Lindy rule when deciding between two products to buy, you can consider the longevity of each product. If one product has been on the market for a longer time, it may be a safer choice. On the other hand, if a product is relatively new and lacks a track record, it may be riskier to choose it.
