    Great Solutions and They Work!!

    So, I've had the book for almost a month and I wanted to wait and see if the tips that the authors suggested actually worked before writing a review. It's now 27 days later and I can't believe I haven't tried some of these things sooner!!! I'm so very happy with everything! I've lost weight, my skin is better, and my self confidence is through the roof. The authors do mention some pricey options but they suggest even more super cheap options too! And yes, oatmeal really works!!! Eat it and wear it - trust me you will not regret it! I also ordered several products they mention and I haven't regretted a single one! Two that come to mind are the Two Faced Lip Plumper (oh my gosh, does it ever work!) and the SoCal Cleanse detoxing capsules (what a blessing! I LOVE my new flat tummy!) For anyone willing to give these tips a try, you will not regret it. And, the book is written very light hearted so it's a super fun and quick read. You definitely won't regret buying this book!

    I am not a reader at all but...

    I actually really liked this book. A book needs to hold my attention, otherwise it was yet another way of wasting my money. It kept my attention and had great tips. Though, I will agree that some things are repeated, and others a bit costly i.e. La Mer. But, other things in it, in my opinion, were great cost saving tips and a few neat ideas. It's nice to have it all summarized into one tiny book rather then have to look all over creation on the internet to find such things. Definately, a quick read!

    Save your money for a jar of La Mer face cream...

    I was told from a young age that it is not nice to use the word hate, so here is my opinion...I truly did not like this book... at all. It basically was the same thing over and over. Let me give you a summary of Hollywood Beaty tips from celebrities: 1) sleep 2) water 3) smile. Products *La mer cream (luxury item) *whatever brand the dermatoligist/make-up artist in the book is promoting *oatmeal mask (home made) *tea tree oil for zits *tooth paste for zits *potatoes or chamomile tea for sleepy eyes. That about sums it up. Save yourself the $15.00 and put it in a jar to save up for la mer. My personal beauty tip for the day: once you have applied make-up to your face, hit it with the cool button on the hair dryer....it will set your make-up. That is what I tell the celebrities when they ask me 'who did your make-up'
