Can you get hooked on lip balm? AND GIVEAWAY!

Seems like a silly question, right? Well, you'd be surprised how many of us type questions like this into our Google search bar daily.

The mad, cosmetic chemists and creators of The Beauty Brains.com are out to educate the masses taking the leap from digital to print with their brand new book, Can You Get Hooked on Lip Balm?

The book stays true to the Beauty Brains structure with quick, easy-to-read tidbits revealing the real science behind the lotions, potions, and beauty products we use every day - dumbed down in terms we can all understand.  Some of the quirkier chapters cover questions such as...

- Why doesn't armpit hair grow down to your knees?
- Does snake venom work as well as Botox?
- Can saliva cure acne?

...and other ponderings that have crossed all our minds...

- What are the best skin moisturizers?
- Why use an astringent?
- Does Retin-A eliminate wrinkles?
- Do eye creams really reduce circles and puffiness?

Read a chapter excerpt here on Hair Products and How They Work. 

Overall, the book is a nice read that can be easily flipped through, picked up and started again in any place and structured in bite-size pieces, so even though it's based around hard science it's easy to digest.

Win a copy of Can You Get Hooked on Lip Balm and a $25 Sephora gift card!! I know. Awesome.
