This book was so much more than I though it would be... I bought it on Kindle and have to buy the hard back because the information is invaluable and it will be easier to refer to the book.

I learned that natural doesn't always mean natural, I have really sensitive skin, so I was intrigued to learn that there are some ingredients to look out for in sensitive and natural products that can cause irritation and allergic reactions. This has been huge for me because I have been using sensitive products that make me itch and have a rash, products that are labeled (natural). This book has showed me what ingredients to look out for.

I also found it inspiring, Jessica is incredibly organised and I found lots of little tips to help within my own home.

The layout is fabulous at the end of each section, there is a summary and at the back a list of every item and store mentioned and contact details for all.

There's a fun exercise for finding your own style, I found it interesting because when I thought about and listed the women I considered stylish they were a mix between edgy and classic, which enabled me to define/label my personal style.

My only complaint which I guess Jessica would not have had an issue with is finding cosmetics for black skin, it is a nightmare trying to find concealers and foundation that will match my dark skin colour. I have looked at the links and none of the stores recommended have anything for my complexion.

The companies I have found through my own research either do not deliver to the UK or do not have one colour that will match my own and I don't see the point in mixing my own blend.

The book applies more to the USA than it does in the UK. Interesting read but not applicable if you live in the UK.

Jessica Alba's book is a little gem. She gives sensible advice and doesn't try to preach. In fact because she is a Mommy herself she knows that life is often far from perfect. What she does give you is plenty of information to enable you to make the best choices for your own family. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to try and give their child a life without too many of today's nasty chemicals.

I really enjoyed this book and found so many helpful tips in regards to eating healthy and how to eliminate chemicals in my home, especially when I have two tiddlers racing around the house. As it's written for Americans primarily, some points are not applicable to us in the UK. Such as chemicals contained in certain meats (the EU doesn't allow for certain chemicals to be injected into meat, whereas the USA does). This doesn't detract from how useful it is though. Most chemicals written about in the book are contained in lots of products here in the UK.

I've now changed to using Dr Organics products in Holland & Barrett and I check all make up ingredients and try to buy the best I can. It's not a preachy book at all, just very informative where you can pick and choose what information you want to take on board from the many subjects contained within.

This is such a good book I only had it for a few days and then it's been passed on from family member to family member and I've yet to get it back.

This book is nice, but that's about it.
The photo's are nice but I didn't learn anything from this book. Most people will already be familiar with most of what the books about and it mostly seems to have been a selling opportunity for Jessica's 'Honest' brand - but I guess I should have known that!
