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.Read more ›
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.
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!
I would definitely recommend this book.
