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.

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.

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.

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 rubbish info on witch hazel and plant extracts that are wrongly indicated by the author as safe and recommended. They are not. Also drinking red wine is not going to provide antioxidants, alcohol is simply not good! Overall an average book. I can easily live without it.
