Can You Get Hooked On Lip Balm?

In this day and age when we are growing more concerned about the chemicals going into our bodies, we often question our skincare products. How can we know if they are safe or not? How do we know if they work or not?

There is so much confusing and misleading information out there. If you’re anything like me, you might be tempted to bury your head in the sand and go along your merry way.

The book Can You Get Hooked on Lip Balm? helps you cut through the noise and provides scientific answers to hundreds of questions about cosmetics.

A group of chemists with more than 40 combined years of experience developing and testing beauty products at major cosmetic companies will answer common questions such as:

Do curling shampoos work?

What’s the right way to apply sunscreen?

Will hair dye give you cancer?

Do lip plumpers really work?

And so much more. It is laid out in an easy to read format and written without scientific jargon that is so hard to understand.

Here is an excerpt from the book.

    I’d like to know the answer to the title of the book, Can You Get Hooked on Lip Balm? because I definitely need my lip balm. I use it all the time and have tubes stashed everywhere–bathroom, kitchen, purse, car, pool bag, etc. I’d also like to know about makeup remover and how safe they are. Often my eyes sting and I think that can’t be a good sign. Thanks!
