    inspiring but perhaps not possible or affordable for everyone

    Kate Somerville's book is very informative, with sections on both at-home skin care (including the products carrying her name) and skin care services, including lasers. There are very impressive before and after photos (not retouched), along with lists of the products and procedures that brought about the improvements. However, it would be nice to see photos of clients who only used her products and didn't get Botox, lasers, etc. That's probably a more realistic plan for most readers, her products are quite expensive in themselves!

    It's okay.

    The majority of this book covers her personal skin care issues, her products and the treatments available in her clinic. The book does provide you with some good tips but the advice tends to direct you to products she recommends from her line. Her cleansers are moderately priced at around $30 (not bad at all) but some of her serums and creams are $150 a piece. This is a nice sized book so you would think it's full of tips but it really isn't for the size. The pictures previously referred are of before and after pics of people that used her products AND had treatments in her clinic. I do not feel like I waste my money (as I am going to school to become an esthetician) because it was a good read but I would not recommend this book to someone that wants to really learn about skincare. Now, if you're already a Kate Somerville fan this book is perfect for you but next time, I think I'm going to stay away from books written by people that have their own skincare lines (unless I want to know about that specific line). If you don't plan on using her products then you may finsh this book feeling like you really didn't learn anything. If I were her, I would have promoted my products too but I would have also given more basic knowledge about skincare that can help someone figure out what they need for their skin outside of my products. I read this entire book and I really don't feel anymore confident about knowing what to use for my skin to reach my skincare goals.

    Complexion Perfection

    Finally a very well organized easy to follow and understand book about skin care and skin health. Great examples used as well as pictures and even a chapter for each type of skin care issue. A good investment.
