I just purchased this book and it's great for a beginner [skincare crafter] like me. DIY recipes have always intrigued me, and overall this book is a good addition to my general DIY book collection. Tons of great choices for facial masks, bath concoctions, etc., however, I wish it'd have a few more recipes for facial and eye creams. The one and only eye recipe entitled "Eye Cream" is really not a cream at all, but a recipe made up of several oils. Same for the facial moisturizers on pages 28 and 29. While oils in skin care recipes are to be expected, I am not a fan of just oils. The Comfrey Infused Oil looks great, but it calls for fresh comfrey. I don't have access to fresh comfrey and it does not specify of dried can be substituted. I am assuming so, but it would have been nice for the author to state so. Another issue is when referring to other recipes within the book (as in the case of recipes within recipes), the author only provides the chapter, rather than the page. It's much faster to have the exact page than flipping through a chapter. Lastly, there is no Resource section. Still on the hunt for a better book. I have my eye on Shannon Buck's upcoming book, soon to be released.

I had a lot of fun with this book-enough to purchase after borrowing from the library. I hadn't made skin care products before and the recipes were easy enough to follow. Most of the recipes I made (and I made a lot of them) turned out and I have gone back to making more of the same one when I ran out rather than searching for a new recipe from a different source. There is enough variety with several recipes covering each area: scrubs, toners, moisturizers, hair care products. . I'm surprised there weren't any for making deodorant or toothpaste. There is a small section that explains the reason for choosing the specific ingredients which is always nice to know. There are quite a few different ingredients and I found myself hunting through health stores to find various ingredients. This was fun for me and helped with stress. I could see it driving someone crazy though. To complicate things, some of the recipes involve two steps. First you make an infusion and then when that is ready you incorporate it into the actual recipe. This turned out to be a whole lot of fun. I infused witch hazel (which I had never used before) with vanilla. Once I learned how to infuse I got busy and infused coconut oil with all the leftover tea that I had. Then that was used in the lip balm recipe (which is fantastic). This also inspired me to make my own extracts. The author touches briefly on skin care and blemishes emerging with cleansing. Perhaps more discussion regarding reactive healing would enhance this book. There was no guidance on making rose petal powder which is used in several recipes. I searched the net but didn't really find much so eventually I baked the petals and then ran them through the coffee grinder ( a must have).Read more ›

It would have recieved 5 stars from me if all the recipes had been accurate. For example, the cocoa butter body butter said it would yield 8 ounces when it only yielded 4 ounces. That's a big difference when one is trying to figure in the costs. I ended up essentially paying double what I was anticipating to make that batch. I was extremely careful in my measuring and cooking so I know I followed the directions accurately. In the same recipe it says to add the essential oils twice in a row. Not a huge deal but sloppy editing is annoying to me. That being said, I've made two other recipes out of the book that turned out perfectly and were really quite good (the lip balm and whipped Shea body butter).

This is another great recipe book for DIY skincare craft beginners. This book contains nine chapters, 223 pages, and tons of recipes. Great print; looks and feels like glossy paper. Colorful. My favorite chapter is Facial Care. I am not sure why Ms. Ress didn't combine all recipe for facial care and facial masks all together, but still great eh?! This book has tons of great quality pictures to keep the readers like me happy. All ingredients are pretty common and easy to find. The recipes are also not that complicated that's why this book is great for beginners. The only thing that I wish Ms. Ress included on her recipes is the substitute for the ingredients. Overall, I will recommend this book to others. Not boring I promise. The price is about right and the book itself is beautiful.

I had so much fun reading this book and trying out some of the recipes for my face, body and hair. Jessica’s main mantra is to infuse all that you do with love. Having already developed a successful line of natural beauty and skincare products, she wanted to share her insights and empower readers to make homemade remedies with a few simple ingredients. That is how I know of her- her Angel Face line is one of my favorites, so I was super stoked when I found out she had a book too! Her products smell amazing/work so well, and they use all natural ingredients, which is key to living a happy and healthy life.

What I love about this book is that you are getting inside information from a health and wellness expert who really knows her stuff, why certain ingredients will work for or against your skin, and so on. Jessica has taken an enormous amount of time, love and consideration to make this book not only enjoyable to simply read (and learn), but has made it super user-friendly for you to start experimenting in your own kitchen.
