Look no further for skin care recipes - this gem of a book is packed with them. It is full of advice, information, detail and contains every recipe you could ask for. It looks at different skintypes and suggests recipe options to help with various problem skins. I can't wait til my (very expensive) serum has run out to try making my own, natural version! I've made a facepack and it was divine. The recipes are simple to follow and well laid out - it is like flicking through a great cookery book.
It's well written and easy to understand. I'm very happy indeed with this book - a fantastic buy.

This book is great. I'm a complete novice and wanted to be able to make my own cleansers, toners, moisturisers, specialist treatments, i.e. face masks, beaute gels, balms, serums and facial oils, this book covers them all.

The recipes in this book are a great way to start making your own products at a fraction of the cost (after the initial outlay). There is lots of information on using essential oils, floral waters, base oils, butters, waxes and specialist ingredients.

I can't recommend this book enough.

I do not recommend this book:
1) it uses a lot of different ingredients at very small amounts which makes the initial investment unnecessarily expensive.
2) it uses chemicals that are known to be cancerogenic, ie polysorbate 20 (source: skin deep).
3) it uses ingredients that seem impossible to get hold of, ie sucragel which doesn't even come up on wikipedia.
4) it covers oil and butters in detail, but not the things that are critical and difficult to research on the internet like safety and toxicity.
5) it does not add health benefits, if I make my own cosmetics I want them to be a healthier option for me.

I have completed several home study courses with sallys company plush folly and would highly recommend this book.this book covers all the learner stages of making skincare and for the more experienced it gives you lots more ideas and fuels the imagination ready to create more,and it would be great to buy if you are going to take the skincare course as it would run beside it perfectly .

Having studied through the author's home study course - it is a bonus to be able to purchase this book to refer to time and time again when I experiment with new potions. Full of great recipies and information, and I use it as my 'bible' to refer to time and time again. Great buy which will pay for itself in no time. It unravels the myths as to what is in skin care and you really can make your own very effective creams, but beware - you'll get hooked, very very hooked!

This is a very good book for making skin care as it it very well written and covers a variety of different products for various different types of skins. It's a good investment if you are serious about making your own skincare.

I bought this on the notion of making my own products and must say I wasn't disappointed. It is well presented and you don't have to have a degree in chemistry to be able to achieve these products which can be easily accessible. I also bought make your own perfumes too and contacted Plush Folly ....What nice courteous people so friendly.

I bought a couple of books on this subject and nearly didn't buy this because the cover didn't draw me in (as they say never judge a book buy its cover!), so glad I bought it as it's the best one, I've made nothing from the other books I bought, I always go straight to this one. It's very professional and not full of food ingredients for face asks etc which I didn't want. The ingredients are all natural: essential oils, base oils, butters, waxes, clays, floral waters etc. good instructions with a lot of recipes and information. You won't need any other book.
