Here’s the WORST LIST.

Here’s the BEST LIST.

I like this for my body and this for my face. I know it’s fairly toxic, but is smells awesome and goes on sheer with a bit of glitter, and I am really, really, really shallow.   For the kids, we do this head to toe.  It scores  3 which is good enough for me, and it’s about $9 for 6 ounces, which is fairly reasonable, I think.

I have a great giveaway at Harry Timescheck it out here.
