If you wouldn't eat it, don't put it on your face?

As someone who switches between makeup brands, hair products, face cleaners, and lotions depending on my mood and what store is closest, I was very happy to learn about Environmental Working Group's SKIN DEEP Cosmetic Safety Database. It measures tons of different products/brands based on the level of toxicity, 0 being the least toxic and 10 being cancer in a bottle. And let me just say, the products I normally use were not that close to the 0 mark.

Um... terrifying. Let us never speak of this again.

Even scarier is the fact that when I clicked through to the description of one the more toxic products I use, there was a link to "buy it on Amazon!" Seriously? We're letting you know that these products will kill you and maim your progeny, but here's a link! WTF?
