Product Reviews (Body Shop, Lush) and a Second Word on Parabens
Here are just a few quick reviews on products I have been using recently.

Body Butters from The Body Shop
I had chosen these body butters based on the fact that they contain no parabens (though from the website it would seem that the blueberry one does contain parabens after all, so I must have just missed that when I looked at the ingredients the first time), as well as the fact that I had used a couple before and really enjoyed them. This time I tried the passion fruit, raspberry and blueberry scents.
- Although the use of parabens has been linked to the development of certain cancers, there is no evidence to show that parabens are harmful in this way. More research is underway into the long-term health effects of their use.
- In clinical trials, around 1% of people showed an allergic response to parabens. When applied to normal skin, parabens contained in cosmetic products should not be the cause of an allergic response.
