Paperback in Very Good (VG) condition.
The trend for indulging in good-smelling, body-pampering natural beauty products isn't just for grownups. With this dynamic little book, young girls can satisfy their burgeoning obsession with cosmetics while expressing their creativity and saving money, too. With such grocery store ingredients as apple cider vinegar, yogurt, honey, lemon juice, oats, and herbal teas and a trip to the pharmacy or health-food shop for essential oils, aloe vera juice, and glycerin, kids can whip up toners, moisturizers, masks, soaps, body wraps, hand and foot emollients, hair treatments, and other goodies to soothe body and spirit. There are also ideas for nifty hairdos, glitzy manicures, and at-home spa days. Then after they've concocted and primped, they can relax with fruit smoothies and spritzers. Excellent directions mean that young readers will succeed even with minimal parental help, and cool graphics further the kid appeal. In the words of this reviewer's 10-year-old daughter, "There are so many great things in this book, I don't know what to do first!"--Amy Handy
