This book was that perfect non-fiction combination of impeccable research along with really great writing. I learned so much about the deep history of Korean beauty culture. On a personal level the book offered tools to really investigate how much money I spend on products marketed towards “fixing” flaws. On a broader level, the author really ties together economic systems — and how they benefit from us feeling like we need constant “fixing” — as well as how these “fixes” can become expectations in smaller social systems. I found the author’s stories about her own time in South Korea really interesting, as well as her many interviews with experts. Additionally, while there are personal stories, interviews, and research, it never feels preachy or judgmental. It seems like the author’s purpose was to educate the reader so they can make a decision for themselves, rather than to tell the reader what should be categorized as right or wrong. In fact, the author herself grapples with the idea that personal decisions are tough when there’s an industry shifting so many aspects of our beauty standards so rapidly. Overall, this was the type of book that I couldn’t stop talking about. I told friends and family about it as I finished each section. It’s the type of book that really stayed with me and I think likely forever changed how I will think about beauty standards, products, procedures, etc.
