Of all of the books and articles I’ve read about safe cosmetics and related topics, this book is my favourite so far. Like the others, it’s easy to read and practical. It’s full of great information about the products that we see each day on the shelves at the grocery store and the pharmacy. The book also offers great recommendations for trustworthy brands and ways to improve the quality of the products you use without totally upsetting your daily routine.
For me, this No More Dirty Looks was the most detailed and the most holistic, delving into proper nutrition and lifestyle in the last chapters. I also love the comprehensive list of books and resources at the end of the book that are mentioned throughout the chapters. The authors, Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt, both write about their personal journeys in experimenting with more natural products as well.
Once again, this book is definitely worth a read!
