Of all the products we use on a daily basis, the ones with the most chemicals tend to be the ones we place on our bodies. Companies have marketed all sorts of products to help us not to sweat, hide or lose wrinkles, clean our teeth, and improve our view of our appearance. Many Americans never spend a moment wondering about how those products may affect their health. However, most potential customers will have at least contemplated whether those products will actually deliver what they say and whether the more costly products are worth the extra expense.

Perry Romanowski's new book, Can You Get Hooked on Lip Balm? strives to answer some of those questions. A quick and easy read, the book successfully manages to take a critical look as to whether or not products deliver what they claim: a yes and no answer. They deliver what they claim. However, their careful words don't claim to do what most consumers believe.

Initially intrigued by the title of the book, I was disappointed that the book had very little science in it. Concerns about what chemicals we place on our body were pushed to the side, with a wave of the hand and a claim that obviously all of these products have been tested and are therefore safe.

I recommend the book for those curious about whether or not to purchase name brand or store brand products. However, if you are looking for a more informed consumer knowledge base of what you place on yoru body, this isn't the book.
