Hm, where to begin? This is actually the first book that I have actually purchased on making your own all-natural, eco-friendly bath products. While I'm no expert on the subject, I'm also not brand new to it or to the world of food and the benefits it can provide. My mother is Asian, so I've grown up with similar recipes and knowledge of how all natural food items from your fridge and/or pantry is good for your body, inside and out. My mom would take weekly milk baths, use egg masks daily, fresh orange peels on her hands and other such things as her beauty regimen.

That being said, I still found this book to be very useful and have a nice variety of recipes. Like I said before, I already knew a little, so some of the stuff wasn't new to me but I still think this is a great book, especially for beginners. It's pretty much straight to the point, very easy to understand and not confusing in anyway. The variety of recipes to try is nice and easy enough that even my 7 year old has made a few! Some of the beauty 'tips' were a little bit obvious(i.e. more sleep, regular exercise, drink plenty of water)but there were other tips that were quite useful and interesting(my favourites were the tips on the bath salts and the ones in the gift giving section).

Even before reading up on the back flap on who the authors were(I've never heard of Lauren or Janice Cox before I purchased this book), I could tell that it was written by someone that was fairly young. There was nothing bad about the book or anything specific, but it gave me a feeling as if it was written for teens but that isn't neccessarily a bad thing.

I ordered this book from a book club, sight unseen, and I'm not sorry I did! There were so many recipes that I could make right away; some books have exotic ingredients that you have to go online to fine. I live in BFE, so I'm thankful that most of the ingredients I could find at the local grocery/health food store. I already made the chocolate massage bar, the cupcake bath bombs, and shea butter lotion. My sons loved the chocolate milk bath. Buy it, you won't be sorry!

I'm so thrilled with this book. I brought it home and my 12 1/2 year old daughter vanished with it. Soon pages were full of post-it notes marking the items she wanted to make. By bedtime she'd made a shower gel and an anti-acne honey potion. She is just coming of age with skin problems and is aware of how many chemicals there are in conventional products (she reacts to the SLS that is in most shampoos, even some of the ones at Whole Foods). This book totally pays for itself in what you save on beauty products.

I received this book from my good friend. I can tell you the first recipe I tried was go bananas hair conditioner. This conditioner smelled so yummy. The mix of coconut oil, banana and raw honey is out of this world. My hair is very curly and dry. I wasnt sure if this conditioner would help me. I decided to give it a try anyway. I am so happy that I did because my hair was manageable and soft. My hair was so shiny and looked so healthy after doing this conditioner. I have also made the strawberry cleanser and the green tea toner. Everyone will have fun making there own skin, body and hair care products. I recommend this to everyone not just young ladies. Your going to look great, save money and go green. Janice and Lauren Cox have done a great job on this book.

I received this book for Christmas and I have been having so much fun with it. I was able to make a ton of the recipes just from stuff I already had in my house. Everything is really simple to make and I love the fact that I know exactly what I'm putting on my skin. I have really liked everything I have tried so far and have had only one minor unpleasant experience. The hair rinse that calls for powdered kelp works really well and gave my hair awesome shine, but my hair was soooo stinky afterwards and it took 3-4 washings before the smell finally went away. But I'm very pleased with this book and would definitely recommend it.

I purchased this book as a source for homemade Christmas gifts. I was blown away by the number of recipes included! This young lady presents her ideas in an easy-to-read format with great pictures that illustrate how beautiful and fun making your own beauty products can be. I have only tried one recipe using coffee, oil, sugar, and salt scrub, and I was surprised by how soft my skin felt afterward. I am planning to make quite a few of these for presents this year, but I will use the basic household items like shampoo and skin toner for the rest of my life. This book also gives environmentally-friendly tips on how to package your concoctions and avoid making waste. It is an all-around great product.

I bought this book as a first foray into making my own beauty products and was sadly disappointed. Though I am a beginner, I am quite knowledgeable on ingredients and a product hound and this book just fell short. It's very simplistic and my first recipe didn't even work. I tried the bathbombs and the recipe is way too high in oil. The bombs wouldn't set because there was too much oil.

With the exception of the above failure, as mentioned by a previous reviewer, I think this would be a good book for a much younger person - perhaps 12-18 year olds.
