Quimby's says: "Liz Barr's second publication with GenderFail, Conditioner, looks at how the skincare and wellness industries have grown to inhabit the role of more dated beauty expectations--how dewy skin and perfect-but-effortless no-makeup makeup a la Glossier still play the same part in controlling and subjugating women. but Barr comes to a more complex conclusion--though these industries are just that, industries, built on a constructed and reinforced image of impossible beauty (synonymous with femininity) women can still find worth in the ritual, gentleness, sensuality of skin-and self-care."
