6 Myths About Cosmetics: How the Manufacturers of Beauty Products Deceive Us

Introducing you to Paula who is a chemist, makeup artist, cosmetologist; she has worked in several different cosmetics companies and has been fired from them multiple times for telling clients the truth about beauty products.

truth about cosmetics

Here, in Paula’s team, we select and recommend beauty products based only on a scientific viewpoint. We are realists, and we don’t believe in magical natural remedies and wonders (like if you wash your face only with a rose decoction, you will look 20 in your 60’s).

Beauty products can help you not have non-expression wrinkles and age spots and acne, peeling a skin and other cosmetic imperfections.
