A very informative and interesting book that breaks major myths and notions about everyday makeup, haircare and skincare products by giving scientific theories. Must read for those into makeup products as it give the right information with proper guidelines about what to buy. It also puts light on the false advertising and marketing by the cosmetic companies. Certainly helps in taking good decisions when buying this stuff..
