Many natural or green books have featured recipes before, but in my experience they've been for nothing more exciting than bath oils or an oil/salt body scrub! This amazing book covers everything from top to toe - hair volumisers, sunscreen, self tanner, cuticle softner, all of which can be made at home with a few ingredients - a fantastic idea, considering the price tags on some natural beauty products. There are even recipes inspired by not-so-green cult items (such as Eve Lom cleansing balm) but without the chemical nasties or hefty price tag, along with really clear step by step instructions.
This book is jam packed full of interesting & useful information and is great value for money in my opinion; I can see mself using the recipe section time & time again. Would recommend this book wholeheartedly to anyone who is interested in saving money on beauty products, not just those who want to go 'green'.
The only slight niggle (and my reason for awarding 4 rather than 5 stars) is the 'where to buy' section at the back is very much targeted at readers in the USA; but an excellent purchase all the same.
The recipes are excellent and I like the fact that it recommends ready made products, because it is hard work making everything yourself. I've tried out many of the suggested products and find them mostly fantastic.
My only slight complaint (and, as with the other reviewer, the reason I haven't given it 5 stars) is that it is an american book and therefore gives almost totally american stores in the "Where to buy" section. Not all the ingredients are easy to lay your hands on - so an edition with british references would make this book impossible to beat.
Besides the very scientific side and good explanations of the industry and ingredients, it gives you very down-to-earth advices, diy tips and also good websites for further reading and for green cosmetics shopping.
I ordered and read it nearly a year ago, but I still flip through once in a while for some beauty advice. Definitely this one is a keeper!!
