LGLG Chapter 3: Sell You, Not Tell You

I read this chapter in my super comfy new bed.

Reading this book is making me sort of sad. Learning about how corrupt a lot of companies practices are is really of putting. I don’t want to waste anything I already own, so I’m going to try to use them up, but it almost feels like torture lathering myself in lotion I know I shouldn’t be using.

Companies main goal is to make a profit, obviously. And they will do whatever they can to get it. Packaging is a huge element on how companies try to sell you a product. Shiny labels, bright colors, and even taglines that are pretty much lies. Burnes brings up an example of companies taking fad ingredients, like grapefruit and covering the labels with positive words about the effects of grapefruit. Then, it will turn out the product has barely, if any, ingredient related to grapefruit.

It comes down to the fact that you can’t trust companies. Even if they claim to be ‘organic’ or ‘natural’….those are just buzz words. My goal is to find products I can trust that really work and are a good price. Then, I’m just going to continue buying those for the rest of my life so I don’t have to worry anymore!

  1. i think you make a great point here. instead of looking at the buzzwords that are advertised on the front, i flip the bottle around to read the ingredients lists. if the first couple ingredients are not natural, they’re just bs-ing. if you’re interested, i was planning to put together a blog post with a few companies that are creating products that really are organic, natural and green. i will link you when it has finished. i’m really glad to know there are people out there who care about the quality of their products, so thanks for writing this!
