I give Paula a lot of credit. For two things 1) gathering research and 2) For not going with only natural products. The fact that many of us know about her on makeupalley, shows that their was a...

I second the review that asks for civility and rationality. I prefer science over magic. I prefer less ranting. I don't understand the vitriol. Keep in mind, this company recommends scads of...

I will go to the cosmetics counter every time without this piece of crap. This woman recommends the most harmful-to-skin products.

I was given this book as a gift and I just can't read any further. She gives her own entire line of products a perfect rating. Geeee that's not biased at all... She lost all credibility in my eyes...
