Okay Frugalista's this book is just for you!  You don't have to read this book from cover to cover in a sitting .. it is an amazing resource guide and if you are like me you will be skipping around like crazy.  This book is filled with beauty secrets but not the you have to go and get botox and hope that one day you will be able to move your forehead kind of {secrets}.  It has recipes that you can make and most of the items are in your pantry...and if they are not currently in your pantry they are not expensive to pick up!  The recipes over all are pretty simple and inexpensive...I gasped when at one point the author who is an esthetician said a Hollywood Star has her mix the concoction....oh my goodness...I could not imagine how much she pays to have someone stick a few items in a blender for her!

This is a great resource book filled with inexpensive beauty secrets...{loving it!!}

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...
