TOP 3 REASON I DON'T LIKE THIS
1) NO PICTURES...
Not one (real) picture in the whole book. I don't know if they tried to save printing cost, but the only pictures you will find are obscure doodles here and their. It would have helped me (a beginner) to see some step by step pics, or at least what the finished product should look like.
2) FOR FEMALES ONLY...
So i am a guy who likes organic skin care, does that mean I'm a wimp or something? Probably! who cares... This book has one estranged after shave face tonic that I could find... It does however include recipes for Douches pg 325, Vaginitis Relief pg 326, Breast Massage pg 328, and some belly butters. To be fair this is in a "Female Section", but there is no male section in the book with the rest catering to females too.
3) TABLE OF CONTENTS
Finding a recipe is narrowed down to the chapters beginning only. Their are 9 chapters and over 350 pages, with only 9 direct page references. Their is NOT ONE direct reference to a single recipe by page # in the table of contents... it will be a headache if you want to use this as a reference or find something quickly.
If you are a guy, don't buy this.
If you want real pictures of any kind don't buy this.
If you like an in depth table of contents don't buy this.
Perhaps, for one of you lucky ladies out their, this is a dream come true, but for me it is $13+ wasted...
For example: "Pineapple . . . Cosmetic Properties and Uses: Containing bromelain, a protein-digesting enzyme, pineapple dissolves dead surface skin cells, resulting in softer, smoother skin." I used fresh mashed pineapple as a mask and it brightened and plumped up my skin. It was amazing and what could be simpler?
I think some people might mistakenly believe that if it's simple and natural it can't be as effective as complicated, commercial chemical masks that are made with toxic chemicals. I don't know how to convince people that simple and natural is in every way better for you, your skin, and the planet. But if a book can help convince a few people, who are skeptical, as I was, then kudos to the author. I'm very grateful to you.
*The other three books in order of my favorite to least preference are: 200 Tips, Techniques & Recipes for Natural Beauty by Shannon Buck, 101 Easy Homemade Products for your Skin, Health & Home by Jan Berry, and Idiot's Guide to Making Natural Beauty Products by Sally Trew.
