    uses only food items, highly perishable recipes, April 3, 2002

    I was disappointed with this book. Not only are there very few recipes listed, but ALL of them are extremely perishable and must be used with 1-2 days of making them. They all use food items as well. If I had known the recipes were of this type, I would not have been so disappointed, but the book was simply NOT billed that way, especially by looking at the cover.

    I like to make my skin care items ahead and use them for at least a month or two at a time. These recipes do not allow for this. You’re better off buying a book with at least a variety of perishable and non-perishable recipes.

    For a long time I was looking for a book that helped me do skin care at home, and this book was perfect. The skin recipes were extremely easy to follow and helpful. The book is simple and easy to read. The best that I’ve found.

    What Estee Lauder won’t tell you, December 23, 2002
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Skin Care Book (Paperback)

    I was given this book by a friend while I was living in Europe. Unable to get my usual brands of skin care products, my friend gave me a beautiful basket which contained the book and many of the herbs called for in the book. What a wonderful gift. I have used Kathlyn Quatrochi’s reciepes for years now and would never dream of going back to “over the counter” brand names. While it’s true that the products have a somewhat short shelf life, I, personally, enjoy the “me” time. I also, and I can’t stress this enough, LOVE the fact that most of the reciepes call for 3 or 4 simple ingredients and no dyes, perfumes, or chemicals that I can’t pronounce. This book is a trip to the spa every time you open it! I wouldn’t be without it.
