    I'm so glad that I did buy this book!

    Since stopping my contraceptive pill I had suffered with considerable acne and patches of dry skin for 2 years which had greatly impacted my self confidence. . until I found this book. I had spent a fortune on trying expensive skin care products, many recommended to me by skin care experts but I saw little to no improvement. I was sceptical initially, thinking that after reading the guidance on your skin type you would have a 'Dr Baumann's skin care range' thrust upon you as the only way to improved skin, however, I was pleasantly surprised. I found the questionnaire simple to complete and my skin type result was spot on (providing you give honest answers- especially in the wrinkle section as painful as admitting it is!). As a result I bought the cheapest products from the comprehensive list provided for my skin type(ranging in price and most available from supermarkets or the high street)and after 3 months there has been a marked improvement in my skin- I even have people commenting on my skin which has never happened before! You may have to read your chapter a few times to get your head around it as Dr Baumann provides often up to 3 different regimens for your skin type depending on the nature of your problems, but once you have got your head around this, your away! I have recommended this book to numerous friends and although some have had to try a few products before finding their favourites most have persisted and seen improvements too. After all, there is no point in giving up after a couple of weeks, it can take a considerable while before you will see improvements. If your skin is getting you down- it has to be worth a try!?

    Well worth the effort

    I have struggled for years trying to find the proper products for my skin. I seemed to switch between oily, dry, normal and combination. Dr. Baumann's book helped me understand the many other factors that make up MY skin. Suddenly all of the money I spent on programs that didn't work made sense. Her book is simple to understand AND lists products at all prices that can work for you. My skin is finally happy with products that can made a difference for me! Well worth the read AND following the Dr's orders!
