All commerce is done based on an imbalance of value, and the ability for one party to unilaterally leverage that gulf to make money.

Many people on HN will tell you that the imbalance of value means that if I'm paying $100 for skin products, they must be worth more than $100 to me.

There's both a certain element of truth and a certain element of circular reasoning in that. Your comment, though not exactly incorrect, reads tendentiously incomplete to me.
