It is more a collection of cut-and-paste notes about random this that and something else you can make from herbs, ointments, creams etc. Not a "beauty cosmetics" guidebook but herbal skin care treatments maybe. To be fair I suppose the mishmashness of the book is disclosed in the introductory text saying this is a collection of "recipes" gathered by the author over a long period of years.
My mistake for not checking the Look Inside or Kindle sample. I am stretching to give it 2 stars in the format and presentation it is currently in. Check the sample or look inside for youself, it doesn't get any better further on in the book that what you see there.
Format Grade: F
This is a run-of-the-mill collection of formulas and recipes, none of which are new or particularly interesting.
The major problem in the Kindle edition is the fact that there are pages after pages which repeat themselves which makes the book unusable. Further, the author included photographs as illustrations, but it looks as if many of them don't show up and there are big blank spaces with a photo caption and no photo.
I got this as a freebie, but today it's priced at $4.99. Even if the Kindle edition were perfectly formatted, this would be too much. Skip this one. You can find the same recipes on the Internet for free or in previously published books.
Most of the other ingredients are eggs, honey, witch hazel, baking soda, all quality recipes to help the individual do it themselves. The author has a good website with a lot of the basic information and some recipes also.
I keep forgetting in the kindle if you like a recipe, use the bookmark feature to bookmark once, then you can use the "go to" feature later. A working TOC is a better feature imho.
