Cosmetics woo

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In their quest for perfect hair and skin the average consumer has to wade through a huge sea of cosmetics woo: useless slimming products, wrinkle removers and hair restorers never made anybody a loss. It's so easy to peddle any old crap by telling their customers that you are ugly and nobody loves you, and then proceed to flog some godawful expensive sludge to them. The alternative is to search out old ideas from folklore, but most of those don't work either.
