Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed Liz Earle's Skin Secret. It's beautifully illustrated and packed with useful information.

What I like about this book is that she doesn't seem to try to sell her own products, but seems genuine in sharing tips about gaining beautiful skin at every stage in life (there are specific sections devoted to beautiful skin at teens, 20s, 30s etc).

Her overall philosophy of beautiful skin is to use natural products, eat well and exercise. The books then gives specific tips on how to achieve that. The style is approachable and full of personal anecdotes. It's refreshing from cosmetics advertising that tries to convince us that one product is the magic cure-all.

Personally I had really bad acne when I bought this book. The section on acne helped me identify the cause and reduced it significantly. The section on natural oils also helped me identify oils to use to moisturise acne-prone skin and reduce acne scars. My face is now almost completely cleared up thanks to this book.

For those who are interested in better skin through the natural way I also recommend 'No more dirty look' which I also wrote a review about.

Format: Hardcover
This book is the best beauty book I have ever come across. The book is beautifully illustrated, with many pictures and illustrations on every page. It is the only 'beauty' book I've come across that gives honest, practical and uncomplicated advise. Liz's approach to looking after your skin is simple, realistic and achievable. She doesn't suggest complicated skin care routines, dynamic exercise routines we will never stick to, or suggesting we radically change our diet and lifestyle. Instead, Liz recommends what to include - and what to leave out - to make a difference not only to the appearance of our skin, but maybe our health too. It's divided into chapters for each skin type, each age group, what effects skin (such as the sun and the foods we eat) oils and herbs that can be beneficial to the appearance of our skin and recipes and exercise that can be easily followed and only take a few minutes of your time. All chapters are clearly written, beautifully illustrated with photographs and illustrations and advice is easy to follow. It's wonderful book to buy for yourself (I have already read my copy several times!) and it would be a wonderful present to give any person of any age or gender with any skin type as a gift. If you enjoy looking after your skin, if you are at all concerned about your skin and it's condition (even what you are putting onto it or into your body!) this is certainly, absolutely, definately recommended.

Format: Hardcover
The book is exceptional with well researched information to help anyone who cares about their skin and lifestyle.
I love Liz Earle products but the book does not focus on the products from Liz's excellent no nonsense quality skincare but it covers a complete lifestyle approach to caring for our skin. The presentation is beautiful with lovely photos and drawings including Liz's own family photos plus beautiful botanical drawings.

I pre-ordered mine as soon as the option was here as I knew I didn't want to miss the book but the book is beyond my expectations plus I would feel confident purchasing the book for any friend even if they use another brands skincare as Liz's advice is for everyone. I doubt anyone receiving the book wouldn't want to try the products after looking at the radiant photos of Liz and her family! Quality presentation, information and most importantly a book which will be read over and over and not left on the book shelf to read once. The research Liz did for this book is evident and her hard work is clearly shown in the book. Thoroughly recommend this book above all other 'beauty' type books. If anyone is confused about ingredients used in skin care then this book will help to discover why high quality natural ingredients work.

I don't think Liz needs to write another after this as there is so much detail but I 'hope' there will be another some day!

What you see is what you get with Liz Earle, she knows about skin and this book does not disappoint. It's not just another beauty book, but a complete manual about skin - everyone's skin: how it functions, explanations of what can cause problems, as well as how to make sure it behaves its best. Liz has always backed up her message with serious research and her reputation for integrity is fully endorsed in this book. It's easily digested, attractive to read, and full of sound information and advice. I'd say it was a must-have for all women (and men!), no matter what their skin type. Hmmm, Mothers' Day coming up....

Format: Hardcover
At last! A clear, informative, digestible and beautiful book about skin care, for women and men of all ages. Having had skin problems myself I know how difficult it is to find straightforward and reliable solutions and, having used Liz's products for at least 12 years I know I can always rely on her advice. The beauty of this book is that, while it encompasses a vast amount of scholarly research, it is laid out in clear and accessible sections and written in Liz's friendly and chatty style. Her passion for her subject is infectious and you feel you know her well by the end of the book! While it's a pleasure to sit and read through the whole thing, its headings and chapter titles make it easy to dip into any time. The directory of suppliers and services is a fantastic resource too. The photography, stunning botanical watercolours, and Liz's frequent suggestions for enticing treats, such as the do-it-yourself facial and several delicious recipes add a real feel-good factor to the serious business of looking after our skin. Fantastic!
