Helen Frith-Powell gives a very informative, witty and honest account of various anti-ageing products and treatments out there...some useful, some scary and some downright mad! In the name of journalism and for the greater good of woman-kind (yeah, right Helena!), she undergoes several treatments and procedures herself with varying degrees of success. I particularly enjoyed her account of those treatments where she knew her husband would kill her when he found out but went ahead and did them anyway!!
There were also some very insightful remarks made by Helena about attitudes to ageing, which I'm sure most women would relate to and a few cautionary tales about how easy it is to take things too far and when to stop.
Okay, so this book is aimed at middle/upper class ladies in their 40's who have money to spend but so what? In these dreary times of credit crunches, belt tightening and general doom and gloom, it was a most enjoyable, funny and refreshing read.
As a 43 lady myself, I take my hat off to Helena for not wanting to "give up" just because she's getting older. Let's make the best of ourselves every day, after all, you're a long time dead....
Come on Helena - 'fess up! What did you really get for such shameless advertising including your own beauty/health website at the last page of the book??
This book follows Helen's journey into anti-ageing experiences across Europe, including painful massage, sheep foetal matter, and face creams. I feel it lacked the funny and interested vibe that Two Lipsticks had; probably because it was not as 'personal' a trawl through the author's life (yes, I am rather nosey in this respect!). This book was more of a series of reviews for anti-ageing techniques, and this type of writing sadly discounted the suthor's usual wit so present in her other books. If you are into the French side of women's health and beauty, get Two Lipsticks and a Lover and Parisian Chic by Ines de la Fressange, I found these more personable and informative.

Great book so far. Bought it after buying my tua viso and finding a reference to it.
Helen certainly has the same humour as myself and being slightly obsessed with ageing can... Read more
