A little while ago, Jeanne asked me if I wanted to review a book about home beauty remedies, Babushka's Beauty Secrets. She included the book 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!).
I told Jeanne that I am thirty-five and hate my "laugh lines", so SIGN ME UP. It's a quick read - I spent all of an afternoon reading through the tips and recipes. It all seems so simple and easy and...inexpensive. As someone who has spent her fair share of money and lotions and potions, it was hard to believe that these tips might work. I figured it couldn't hurt to try a few recipes and I don't know if it's all in my head or wishful thinking, but my face does seem a little brighter and my lips a little fuller. I tend to pick myself apart, as women often do, so if I see an improvement it can only stand to reason that maybe there is something to this book and its tips.
