...a large majority of the skin care and cosmetic products on the market today have never been evaluated for safety by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) and the CIR (Cosmetic Ingredient Review) or any other publicly accountable institution.
Sorry to disappoint but the product that I was going to review this week was OrganicOptions Calming & Moisturizing shower gel. This product is available at your local Wal-Mart storefor $5.87. However, for not having a lot of ingredients, it still has some in it that are disagreeable to the skin. Another example of an overly-advertised as Organic product not being that great for you still. The packaging says NO ANIMAL TESTING - which is WONDERFUL - but when I went on the website www.dendera.net (wait! don't click on it and waste your time) to get more information about the Co. the website was unavailable. Something about that feels shady and a little too fly-by-night for me. So I'd rather not review it and just...talk.
Did I tell you that I have run my course with Wal-Mart and I'm done searching for good skin care products there? Well I have. I scoured every single shelf and came up short way too many times. Honestly it also gets annoying when you keep on looking up ingredients of stuff that you have worn for years just to realize that it's loaded like a baked potato @ Applebee's - chock-full-of preservatives, additives, and yuck!
Next week, I will do a review of something that I think will be truly good for us. I don't want to say the name just yet because of....well, I really don't have a good reason but I want to make sure I like it before I tell everyone else about it. Hmm...I guess there was a reason!
So next week it is folks!
My best, Lynn
