Format: Hardcover
This book does have amazing skin "transformations", however, you'll notice that each transformation required treatments and products that easily add up to thousands of dollars. The average "makeover" person in this book gets several laser/light treatments, injectables, Rx products, professional peels, etc. So what's the point of this book? Also you'll notice that Kate also assigns each makeover subject to her products...which cost $85 for just an exfoliant.

This book does have some information on skincare ingredients and "medspa" type treatments like lasers and injectables, but other than that, I don't think it's useful. She also advocates things like "Avoid dairy" "Avoid bread" which is not strongly guided by evidence based medicine.

I had high expectations with regards to this book and it is not that great. It provides high level explanation on how to achieve good skin ... and spending thousand of pounds in cosmetic procedures of various kind. This book is mainly a marketing tool for the author. Some of the info is not even correct. i liked the section on how emotions have an impact on the conditions of the skin, but the rest of the book is stuff that you can easily find on magazines and on the internet.

OK if you want to have some basic info about skin and skincare - with the bias towards overpriced products manufactured by the author and incorrect info on witch hazel and plant extracts that are wrongly indicated by the author as safe and recommended. Also drinking red wine is not going to provide antioxidants, alcohol is simply not good! Overall an average book and I did not enjoy it.

this book is excellent! it's super detailed and informative. i have a great interest in skincare, what i should use, anti-aging and prevent wrinkles. the book sums it all up and them some in an easy read. i love how it defines all common skin care ingredients and even talks about in office procedures and what you should & shouldn't do.

This book is good due to the thoroughness of information and the alternatIves she gives you for face care instead of buying her products. Like yogurt on the face for 5 minutes to exfoliate and witch hazel as a toner. Her products are really expensive and so are perricone's that it is off-putting and always makes me think they aren't looking for repeat customers. The upside is the products last about 3 months if using only once a day. This book helps you identify your skin type and gives you the steps for evening, morning, and weekly skin care.

The book is good. I would give it 5 stars, but i dont think its an appropriate book for people. Too many specific information, which is not really necessary for everyone to know. Also, the treatment is very complicated. You cant do it at home.
So, if you not an Esthetician, dont waste your money. Get Bobby Brown books instead.

I find Kate's book to be the most thorough and complete synopsis of skin care I have ever found. I keep it on the shelf with my medical books and refer to it often. Her life story is impressive and she is a shining beacon to all of us in this industry.

This book is very well written. A must for everyone who is looking for answers regarding proper skin care and looking for correct information in regards to medi treatments.
