A New York Times Bestseller
Praise for The French Beauty Solution
“[An] expert rundown of French beauty rules, age-old traditions and do-it-yourself recipes.”—The Los Angeles Times
“Thomas debunks the mystère surrounding French women (and their cellulite-free figures) and explains why she abides by the ‘pleasure principle’ in all aspects of life. Calorie-counting Americans, take note.”—Allure
“Full of advice on how to maintain a lifestyle that is très français, her ode to the French woman covers everything from how to drink red wine (with gusto) to how to carry oneself (with nonchalance) and how to maintain beautiful skin, among other tidbits of advice and anecdotes.”—The New York Observer
“Just what could this particular France-born expert teach us about how to live a slimmer/chicer/less-American life? As it turns out, plenty…And while we do often daydream of parquet-floored apartments in the 17the century and endless platters of fromage, anything that assists in getting us out of our decidedly lazy American skin care routine and into something far more sophisticated – French or otherwise — is well worth the read.”— Hollywood Reporter
“Like Bringing Up Bébé and Caroline de Maigret’s How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are before it, [The French Beauty Solution] caters to our fascination with all things French, but is the first “how-to” of its kind focused specifically on beauty. Spoiler alert: It’s impossible to stop reading and will inspire you to take more walks and drink more red wine.”—Yahoo Beauty
“If you want to be more like the French (and who doesn’t), this book is sure to show you the way.”—Time.com
“I’m thrilled Mathilde is sharing her best kept French beauty secrets. I’ve been a fan of Caudalie and her Vinotherapie Spas for years.”—Jason Wu
“The French Beauty Solution takes a holistic approach to being a gorgeous woman. Sharing her wonderful philosophy on lifestyle and easy maintenance, Mathilde speaks from the heart. Besides, who doesn’t want to learn the secret behind what makes French women so effortlessly beautiful and confident.”—Rashida Jones
“What I really love and admire about Mathilde and the Caudalie brand is how they place the emphasis on feeling good vs. looking good. Confidence certainly exemplifies beauty and Mathilde captures that entirely. It sends a wonderful message.”—Katie Lowes, actress
“Mathilde’s The French Beauty Solution offers incredible advice to women on skincare and the importance of enjoying your beauty routine. This is my new summer beauty bible.”—Olivia Palermo, founder and creative director of oliviapalermo.com
“I just read Mathilde’s book and I love that she is not only teaching beauty regiments, which go against all the old wives tales, but that she also points out the beauty of women who have aged gracefully instead of just promoting youth.”—Lottie, celebrity makeup artist
“As a French woman, The French Beauty Solution really simplifies the French way of beauty for all women to enjoy.”—Garance Dore, photographer, illustrator and author

Overall, the book is very good, certainly biased to Ms. Thomas' company's products and a French take on life and beauty - but that shouldn't be a surprise to any reader. She believes in the benefit of Caudalie products. They are excellent products. The book reminded me of the pleasure and results that come with taking care of yourself, not taking regimes and "diets" too seriously, and laying a good foundation for health and beauty. I found it quite worthwhile and will recommend to my friends.
Her beauty line is fabulous, and I do love her spas very much. I just kind of felt like this book was a bit of a let down.
