Packed with DIY recipes using only natural ingredients So many I can t wait to try. Great index I don t believe natural beauty products work half as well as unnatural ones Sorry to say, but when I was living with hippies and using tea tree oil to combat my dandruff and coconut oil to moisturize my skin, I was miserable, flaky, and breaking out in an insane rash acne, when I had never had skin problems before in my life The second I started using products full of ingredients I couldn t pronounce was when I started seeing a huge improvement, and I haven t looked back I will never again believe that natural beauty products do any real good at all, besides making us feel a little less guilty, and a little less vain With all that out of the way, I did enjoy this book, and was intrigued about some of the recipes Other than the blush face powder crap made out of arrowroot powder and cocoa, which made me scream with laughter No one is going to put that nonsense on their face Anyone that interested in saving the environment is going to just skip wearing make up What made me give this book three stars, and not dismiss it completely, was the amazing index All non fiction books should have an index that is this great Good book to recommend to weirdo types who think they can look just as great as a model while wearing bananas and mangos on their face. Good recipes Definitely have to buy the ingredients to try out some of these recipes They look really good. I was so happy when I finally received this book I won it through Good Reads First reads and was waiting impatiently for it to come in the mail.First off this book is so pretty I wasn t expecting a finished copy but I m so glad I did The cover is really eye catching and the inside doesn t fail to excite With wonderfully coloured typography and simple doodle like illustrations the only thing that could be fun than making the recipes is reading about them That being said the recipes in this book are amazing They are quick, simple, and prefect for gifts to friends, family, co workers and yourself There are few ingredients that you would have to go out and buy, most everything in this book is made from what you can find right now in your kitchen cabinet Everyone wants to pamper themselves, but they don t want to dig deep or pay an arm and a leg to do so if that sounds like you then look no further than Homemade Beauty Hoy a diferencia de lo que acostumbro rese ar en el blog me gustar a compartirles un poco sobre mi opini n de este libro de Annie Strole.Todos alguna vez hemos recurrido a las famosas recetas de la abuelita, esos remedios caseros que nos han sacado de m s de un apuro y resultan ser un tanto milagrosos.Cuando me enter de este libro supe que era indispensable tenerlo en mi librero, ya que nunca est de m s contar con estas recetas que nos pueden ayudar en la vida diaria tanto a hombres como mujeres, y en Cosm tica casera me encontr con un excelente contenido que nos proporciona tips para cuidar la piel, el cabello y el cuerpo desde c mo mantenerlo hidratado, limpio, dietas d tox buen simas y como un extra tambi n nos dice como mimarlo desde casita sin pagar grandes cantidades en el Spa, porque de vez en cuando es vital consentirnos ya que el cuerpo cobra factura de las actividades que realizamos diariamente Son 150 recetas No les miento, ya prob haciendo algunas mascarillas y me encanta el resultado Y la mayor a de los ingredientes son muy f ciles de conseguir y econ micos.Sin duda mantendr este libro a la mano para recurrir a el con frecuencia. Good book for those looking to get into creating their own body products There s a code system to help you know what skin type these products work best with I couldn t find shelf life info for many of these recipes If you re making from all natural ingredients, will it need to be refrigerated, etc The book also included a recipe for homemade sunscreen which I personally wouldn t attempt to make I wouldn t want to get to the beach and discover that my homemade sunscreen does not offer the coverage a store bought one does. This is certainly one of the most useful books I ve read on homemade health products, and as someone who s been doing this for a while, I found it really helpful, especially with the index, to find ideas for new recipes It s a great place to start from and it s also great for experienced DIY ers to use the recipes and tweak them to what suits their needs I definitely would suggest this to anyone interesting in learning or furthering their knowledge and expand recipe books of homemade beauty products.
