I have no doubt that natural ingredients are better for the skin. Chemicals that you can’t pronounce scare me, too. My daughter, who is 16 now, had such bad eczema when she was younger, that I was desperate to try anything to help her feel better. I did find, at the time, that natural ingredients like cocoa butter and soy worked better than fancy designer lotions in most cases. I also have to be really careful about what I wash her clothes in and what I use to clean the house with. She still has breakouts today. So this info was not new to me because I’ve experienced a lot of it myself through my own journey, not with my own skin, but that of my daughter. I don’t disagree with any of the material provided in this book.
My reason for not giving it a 5 star rating is that the book seems gimmicky, more like an advertisement for the author’s company and products, than a book that is meant to stand on its own merit. I know this is great marketing, and will drive people to her website to buy her products, and I can’t fault anyone for using this marketing strategy because it works. I just personally don’t favor reading something that seems like I’m reading an infomercial.
