    Very Disappointing

    I find that all this book does is give one a more complicated version of oily/dry/mature skin types. After taking the test and being honest I came out DRPW, when reading the desciption of this skin type I felt like it didn't describe my skin at all, I have 'mature' skin with fine lines but not anything like it sounds like from her description. I went back and retook the W part of the test and still came a W. (5 questions pertain to whether your parents/grandparents looked their age,not all of us have them around to know, and what has that got to do with what I look like today!) I have used enough skincare products to know that most of what she recommends might work fine for some 30/40 year old but not for a person with mature skin. After reading the DRPT section I fall more into that category, however might be a cross between the 2! In other words even though it seems that she has typed your skin in more detail than what has been the norm,she hasn't. Some of the questions are too general and some none of the answers fit. What really made me realize that I wasted my money on this book, was when I saw she recommended Max Factor Pan Stick makeup for DRPW skin! I didn't even know they still made the stuff! I have read many books out there pertaining to skin care none of them worth mentioning and I am beginning to think that some Dermatolgists instead of being doctors are trying to cash in on the money making Cosmetic industry!!
