CLOSED- Review and Giveaway: Return to Beauty: Old-World Recipes for Great Radiant Skin


As promised, I am hosting my first giveaway! I received "Return to Beauty" by Narine Nikogosian when I won it in a giveaway from another blog. I absolutely loved this book and I decided it would be perfect for my first giveaway. Therefore, I bought another copy to give to my readers.

Return To Beauty is a book full of wonderful Eastern European traditional skin and hair care recipes that can be made with simple things you have in your kitchen (lemon juice, water, honey, etc).  What I loved the most about this book is that it has an Astrology section. Not only does it tell the typical things about your personality, but it says what foods are appropriate for your sign. I found it entertaining and accurate!
The book also contains different recipes for different seasons, a pregnancy section, recipes for acne and dandruff and even a section for men. I literally sat down and when through this book for hours when I first got it. I have only tried one of the recipes so far, but I plan on making more this weekend. I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I do.

To Enter:
  • Mandatory: Follow me via Google Friend Connect or Facebook (both are found on my sidebar)
 Extra Entries:

  • Tweet about this Giveaway (can do DAILY). You can copy and paste this " @Latsyrc728 has a "Return To Beauty" Giveaway www.thriftyandfrugalliving.com #giveaway ends 02/01"
That is it! Simple. Just leave a separate comment for each entry and make sure you leave an e-mail address to win. Winner will be chosen randomly. Giveaway ends 02/01/10 at midnight. Winner will be e-mailed and have 48 hours to respond before a new winner is chosen.
