Babushka's Beauty Secrets by: Raisa Ruder and Susan Campos *Review and Giveaway*
Tuesday, July 6, 2010
I really enjoyed this book! I love books, that give me information, that I can use. I learned so many awesome tip, and the best part is that I didn't have to pay some crazy price, and I'll save a ton in the future! Oh, and all the recipes are all natural! What could possibly be better? A lot of the recipes the author learned from her grandmother, as a young girl. So they've been passed down a couple generations. Not only that but, the author also uses the recipes on stars in Hollywood (and we all know how picky they are!).
DON'T SPEND A FORTUNE TO LOOK FLAWLESS Esthetician to the stars Raisa Ruder learned her time-tested beauty techniques from her Ukrainian grandmother (or babushka, as they say in the old country). Now everyone can discover the all-natural, better-than-botox secrets the Hollywood stars use to shine on the red carpet! Ruder reveals her sought-after beauty recipes that can fight wrinkles, plump lips, and eliminate crow's feet and acne, using inexpensive, everyday grocery items like eggs, honey, vegetable oil and strawberries (and a splash of vodka for freshness!). At last, by popular demand, Raisa Ruder opens up her babushka's secret pantry and shares her most amazing and effective beauty advice:
Skin-saving Soufflés - whipped up wonders that shrink pores, brighten skin, and diminish lines
Chocolate weight-loss wrap- a moment on the hips, tightens, tucks, and nips!
Hot hair- a cayenne pepper blend that leaves locks silky, soft, and full
PediPure- a soothing, smoothing foot scrub made with milk and mint
Lustrous Lashes - a simple castor oil serum that thickens and lengthens
Perfect Pucker- a mix of salt, green tea, and fruit that plumps up lips naturally
And much more...
Here's a recipe from the book:
Here is a fantastic remedy for ingrown hairs. This is one of the few times when you can indulge in without all the guilt that usually goes along with it. So go for it!
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
3 drops vanilla
Total time: 5 mins.
Mix the ingredients together and scrub all over the areas where there are ingrown hairs.
Wasn't that easy?
Overall I really liked the book! This is one I'll be keeping around for along time (or until I memorize the recipes by heart..LOL)! This is a great book for all women! Especially great if you have girls, and maybe they need some help with acne, ect... ! Also makes a great gift for that girlfriend that loves beauty products, or if your having a girls night in! I definitely recommend this one!
