I don't tend to feature many beauty books simply because there is an abundance of beauty books out there, some good, some great and others aren't worth the paper they are printed on. Luckily the Neal's Yard Remedies Books tend to focus on educating the reader using facts rather than filler. The Neal's Yard Remedies Beauty Book isn't any different, brimming full of recipes, facts and D.I.Y Ideas.
Each page is beautifully written and photographed, with clear concise instructions and/or information you may want to know. I rather like that the book covers pretty much all aspects of beauty and caters to all ages which is evident in their choice of models for any tutorial - all ages and all skin tones have been selected. As with every novel of this time it has a unique selling point and in my opinion it is the ingredient breakdown/directory so to speak, if you have ever wondered what is in your favourite skin care item but feel bogged down by scientific jargon this is the book for you. Not only are certain ingredients broken down in clear, easy to understand speak but Neal's Yard Remedies Beauty Book also states why said ingredient is used and the benefits.
Personally I am not a huge fan of beauty tutorials composed via photography, especially since we have Youtube at our fingertips - it seems a little dated in comparison but I do have to state that brand have ensure they are easy to follow none the less. If like myself you enjoy rustling up a face mask or hair treatment in your kitchen this book will not disappoint, the "recipes" are well considered and not the run of the mill idea you will find after a quick Google search.
Neal's Yard Remedies Beauty Book is how beauty books should be; educational yet fun, facts not fluff. A highly recommend beauty read.
