'Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me' by Paula Begoun $8

I used to LOVE Paula Begoun, the Cosmetics Cop, back in the day before I educated myself about Parabens and other dangerous chemicals in our products. I completely disagree with her stance on them and that she uses them in the products she now sells on her website. However, she does put out a useful book to what products work and don't work based on ingredients. It's always an interesting read, but I haven't purchased an updated copy in nearly a decade. On her website, Paula is offering the 7th edition for $5 - the 8th edition will be out soon. She also has a $3 flat shipping offer, so you can get the book for $8. I ordered a copy of it yesterday. I wasn't willing to pay $20 for it, but for $8, I'll bite. That's cheaper than I can find it anywhere used.

  3. First I would like to say that I just stumbled upon your blog tonight and I am loving it. As I'm reading through, I'm visiting different brands' websites, just to get a better idea of what you're referencing. Anyways, I noticed you posted this ad in November, and I was just curious as to your ideas on the new editions of this book... it looks like an interesting read!

  4. Hi Princess, I just found your blog. Great information! I'm a breast cancer patient (2x) and have thrown out all my paraben filled, over-priced crap make-up. Thanks for all your hard work. I will keep reading.
    Best Wishes, Kitty
