Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like skincare and I wanted to learn more about what it is good and what is just hyped marketing rubbish. This book is written by a dermatologist (not a random self professed YT "guru" or aesthetician) with proper qualifications and experience. Of course she mentions her products (well, it is a marketing tool for her after all!) but she also mentions suitable products offered by the competitors at all price points.

The part on the diet is very similar to the Clean & Lean system by James Duigan. What I really enjoyed is the explanation of the lies cosmetic companies tell us to sell overpriced stuff, the phases that help achieving a great skin (no promises of miracles here), a list of ingredients that are good and where to find them and an how to do an analysis + possible solutions (the magic pot does not exist). Very easy to read, not patronising (unlike Paula's Choice). A must have if you do not want to be ripped off when purchasing products and if you want to buy stuff that work (it tells you what to look for an what it does for your skin).

A wonderful book packed with useful tips and information. I have seen great improvements in my complexion and like the fact that Dr Denese does not push her own brand. Having said, I have lots of her skincare products and love the feel of them on my skin and the improvements they bring about.

HASH(0x94e56e7c) out of 5 stars A Virtual Consultation 3 Mar. 2005
By J. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Dr. Denese goes over every beauty concern and offers recommendations. It was like having a virtual consultation! I got my own questions answered and more. A wonderful bonus was her eating plan and suggested list of supplements.

It was refreshing to read a beauty book not promoting one magic ingredient or product. Dr. Denese offers the most current scientific knowledge on beauty in a very readable style. I couldn't put the book down and kept taking notes on things I wanted to try. Highly recommended for anyone interested in anti aging or beauty.

HASH(0x94e570e4) out of 5 stars Fantastic book, Fabulous Skin Care Line 3 April 2006
By TVDIVA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book (and the DVD of the PBS Special) after watching the Dr. Denese during pledge week on PBS; I use her defense day cream (SPF 30) and amazing exfoliating facial pads faithfully. Both products are wonderful. As I finish up the current line of cosmetics I am using, I am moving into her skin care line.

The book is quite an eye opener. First and foremost, she does not pad it with filler. She gives you the true scoop on Growth Hormones, middle age hormones, menopausal skin, botox, fake botox - you name it, she gives you the hard hitting truth to products and services we all fall prey to.

She provides information for every type of skin - normal, dry, combination, oily, etc. From the lightest to the darkest complexion, she chronicles every problem and its solution.

Dr. Denese also provides some interesting facts on diets and stress and the impact to our skin. Some things are basic, but some of the information regarding blood insulin regulation was new to me.

Dr. Denese chronicles her own mistakes in caring for her skin, as well as patients who come to her clinic.

I truly believe this is the best written and most up to date book on skin care right now. And I believe her line of skin care can work for everyone.

Her complete skin care line is sold on QVC and on various internet sites.

I highly recommend her products, this book and the PBS Special DVD which is also sold on Amazon.

HASH(0x94e570a8) out of 5 stars Great, Effective Skin Care 8 July 2005
By MamaChula - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My mom bought this book, at the time I was having recurring skin problems (which was normal for me)she showed it to me and I couldn't put it down.

The next day I bought one for myself - I saw a dramatic difference in the appearance and texture of my skin, in one week - without her products.

I began taking only the fish oil (because vitamins are so $$$ - and finding the ones she reccommends isn't easy) noticed a major difference in my overall skin moisture levels and the soft manageable quality to my hair.

I then purchased her products on QVC - and the results are amazing. For me, i had acne as kid an thought that it would simply disappear as I matured, not so - i had dry skin and clogged pores and outbreaks around my mouth. The dermatologist would give me a series of antibiotics, but after that, it was going right back to "delicate" products that clogged my pores, his advice paled to the information I received in this book. (and for a lot less money)

For people with problem skin, this book should be required reading. It explains skin from the inside out - and isn't merely about "feel good products". Dr Denese is honest, helpful and most of all her scientific approach is (continuosly) effective.

HASH(0x94e5739c) out of 5 stars A behind the scene's view of the cosmetic industry 1 April 2005
By Wazu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I heard about Dr. Denese's book through PBS. The author is knowledgeable and and well credentialed to write the book. The book seems to be a legitimate attempt to dispel many myths about skin care and help people to have better skin. One of which is that there is no one magical crème. She provides a behind-the-scene's view of the cosmetic industry and it isn't pretty.

She has a six step process: 1) cleansing 2) exfoliating 3) skin-stimulating, 4) skin building, 5) skin sealing, 6) sunscreen.

However, the book seems to encourage using Dr. Denese's products. She lists a few competitor's products, but the competitor's products she lists are more expensive than her own products. So any reader committed to following Dr. Denese's system would logically buy Dr. Denese's products because her products are exactly what she recommends and cheaper than the listed alternatives. Because of that, it seems that the book is geared to help Dr. Denese sell her product line. The author is very bright; it is a very soft sell, but a very logical sell to any person committed to improving their skin condition.

FYI, Dr. Denese's products are available on eBay.

Overall, I thought it was a good book. I am a man and skin care is relatively new to me. It is a huge step for me to start wearing sunscreen on a daily basis, but I am committed to it since I now realize how much harm the sun does to our skin.

HASH(0x94e573fc) out of 5 stars Getting the Products Cheaper! 8 Nov. 2005
By CheaperChapters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I thought this was a great book, but I found that it was very difficult to affordably get all the supplments that she recommends. As for the vitamins, I found that Nature's Made Anti Oxidant Packs, which are currently on Drugstore.com (7.99), get you most of the way there. In addition, I have added the Nature Made Balance B Complex, Nature's Bounty Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc (Chelated) & again Nature Made Co enzyme Q-10. That pretty much gets you all the vitamins and minerals, even though you still have to buy the fish oil, pycogenol (sp?).
