The author of the book, Paula Begoun is the owner of Paula’s choice, a brand of both skincare and makeup that I love so very much! What I admire a lot about her is although she has her own brand, she also pushes other company’s products and gives her honest opinions on how they work.. it’s not like she forces you to only buy her stuff.
In the back of the book she includes an ingredient dictionary for popular ingredients found in most skincare and makeup products, which has gotten very handy for me whenever I’m looking for new things to try.
If you have the time, I would go check this book out. You can find it at your local Barnes and nobles or a thrift store if you’re lucky. It cost me $16.95 without tax and is definitely worth every penny. It’s not too long or heavy either so it’s easy to carry with you while shopping!!!
