GIVEAWAY: Babushka's Beauty Secrets by Raisa Ruder & Susan Campos (Book Review 2010-106)

Product Description

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 Souffl├ęs - 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...

LOVED IT

This easy to use guide is perfect for everyone!  It is filled with easy to use recipes to make your skin glow.  I tried several of the simple one ingredient ideas such as an using the juice from an orange to get that all important Vitamin C as a rub.   I left it on for 5 minutes and then rinsed with some milk on a cotton ball.  I did find that milk with fat works much better than fat free.  There are several other easy ideas as well.  The most important thing I found in this book is a helper for dry skin.  I used an avocado and some almond oil in paste and it worked better than my normal moisturizer.  The best thing about the ideas in this book is that for any one with sensitive skin is pretty much guaranteed that you won't have any nasty reactions.
