All over Europe women eat and hang out. Offer up everything from signature love olive oil for the skin. There are treatments for eyes, lips, hair, hands, feet, and whole body. There are even waxing processes and shaving creams. There are recipes in here aimed for younger pre-teens all the way up. All the ingredients in Babushka's Beauty Secrets are the ones you'll have in your refrigerator: Milk, eggs, mustard, mayonnaise, avocado, olive oil, etc.
In one section of the book, Ruder compares prices of treatments and natural foods: The only thing that bothered me slightly was the vagueness of some of the ingredients. When she says "milk," does it have to be whole milk? Milk is an example, but there are other ingredients she mentions that are not specific. With so many chemicals in our food today, is there a specific brand that is best? In the long run, I think if it did make a big enough difference she would mention it, but it still raised questions for me.
Some of the specific things that Babushka's Beauty Secrets hits on: Skin treatments that make your skin glow and look young eye treatments for dark circles, crows feet, and eyelashes lip moisturizers and colors hair treatments for dandruff, dry hair, thin hair, oily hair, every kind of hair etc feet treatments treatments for cellulite and sunburns one ingredient wonders I was very impressed and surprised by Babushka's Beauty Secrets.

Lots of great recipes in here for more natural alternatives to store-bought treatments. I will say that I was thrilled to get the chance to review this book. First off I was really just thinking it would be fun to read and check out what things were in the book but I really never dreamed that it had so many things that I would actually be able to make and use so easily and for once I have almost all the ingredients that are used throughout the entire book and didn't need to buy anything.
First of all to begin with it is a very interesting read and it is full of Babushka's Beauty t I will say that I was thrilled to get the chance to review this book.
First of all to begin with it is a very interesting read and it is full of Babushka's Beauty tips and advice that are spread out throughout the book. Then of course I had to start trying out all these great recipes to see how well they worked. I started with the dandruff shampoo and I was amazed. It works just as well and I love it because it smells great because it is made with my favorite bottle of shampoo and you won't believe how easy it is.
I use my own shampoo in the same bottle it came in and then add the ingredient to take care of the dandruff. I can honestly say that I will never buy another expensive bottle of dandruff shampoo again and my hair won't smell like I use it either.
That in itself is well worth the purchase of this book. The second thing I had to try was my own scented lotion and once again I was impressed. To say the least this book is a great read but for anyone wanting to save some money and still treat yourself to some wonderful pampering this is the book for you.
This book is a great addition to anyones bookshelf and one that will get plenty of use from more than one family member there is something in it for everyone. View 2 comments. Jun 28, Laura Ellis rated it really liked it Shelves: I really liked this book. It was a quick read and gave insight into how to take care of your skin and hair without spending a fortune. Ruder covers everything from acne, fine lines, adding body to your hair, to whipping up your own self tanner.
It was refreshing to read about homemade remedies that came from her grandmother and the "old country" as there were ingredients I would have never thought of using on my skin or hair. The book not only contains recipes but old wisdom passed down from her I really liked this book. The book not only contains recipes but old wisdom passed down from her grandmother.
I recommend this book to everyone and thinkn that all will find it is a great tool in revigorating their skin, hair, and bodies. I wanted to include one of the recipes in the book to give all a taste of what they were like. I decided on this one as it is summer and everyone wants to look good in that bathing suit.
This is the perfect body scrub to use before getting into a bathing suit. Place the powder in a small mixing bowl. Add the brown sugar and lemon juice. Mix well. Now add the aloe vera and stir to form a paste. Be sure there are no lumps. Dampen the skin and massage the paste onto it. Rinse with warm water.
I would love to hear from anyone that tries this or any of the other recipes in the book to see what they think. I know I can't wait to try them all. Jun 24, Wendy Hines rated it liked it.

Nothing earth shattering on beauty. Most of it seems like "old faithful" recipes used by our grandmother's before the chemical high tech industry took over beauty care. Some of the ideas are like getting advice from grandma like Your feet will be so soft and smooth the next morning. You want healthy, make-it-at-home beauty tips? This book does a good job.
Especially for a younger generation who may have been lost to how things used to be done to look beautiful.
