Babushka's Beauty Secrets Book Review & Giveaway!*CLOSED*




DON'T SPEND A FORTUNE TO LOOK FLAWLESS

Esthetician to the stars Raisa Ruder learned her time-tested beauty techniques from her Ukrainian grandmother (or babushka, as they say in the old country). Now everyone can discover the all-natural, better-than-botox secrets the Hollywood stars use to shine on the red carpet! Ruder reveals her sought-after beauty recipes that can fight wrinkles, plump lips, and eliminate crow's feet and acne, using inexpensive, everyday grocery items like eggs, honey, vegetable oil and strawberries (and a splash of vodka for freshness!). At last, by popular demand, Raisa Ruder opens up her babushka's secret pantry and shares her most amazing and effective beauty advice:



  • Skin-saving Souffl├ęs - whipped up wonders that shrink pores, brighten skin, and diminish lines


  • Chocolate weight-loss wrap- a moment on the hips, tightens, tucks, and nips!


  • Hot hair- a cayenne pepper blend that leaves locks silky, soft, and full


  • PediPure- a soothing, smoothing foot scrub made with milk and mint


  • Lustrous Lashes - a simple castor oil serum that thickens and lengthens


  • Perfect Pucker- a mix of salt, green tea, and fruit that plumps up lips naturally


About The Authors~

Raisa Ruder was a registered nurse in her native Ukraine when she decided to move to the United States fifteen years ago. For seven years she worked at the famed Anastasia salon doing eyebrows and facials until opening her own West Hollywood salon in 2005. She noticed the large amount of preservatives in American products and decided to introduce her Babushka's old world beauty recipes in her salon. She quickly became LA's go-to-girl. Her clients include: Madonna,Tyra Banks, Molly Simms, Ali Larter, Nicolette Sheridan and others.

Susan Campos is a broadcast and print journalist. She is a former anchor for the national weekend edition of Today. She's reported for Dateline and hosted numerous entertainment shows on MSNBC. She currently writes trend stories on beauty for The New York Times' "Styles" section and its T Magazine, and is a contributing editor for Radar Magazine.

This book is great~As not only do the authors have some great beauty secrets~ they also give you 10 good reasons why you should stock vodka in your house!
The recipes are easy to make and most of the ingredients you have right in your house. I have not tried all of the recipes yet~but I sure plan to as they all sound so great! I tried the Hot Hair and I loved it~really did make my hair feel softer.
