The Compassionate Chick’s Guide to DIY Beauty Book Review

This book by Sunny Subramanian and Chrystle Fiedler is a great Christmas gift for your budding DIY beauty junkie.  It includes fun and simple recipes for Face Care, Bath and Body Care, Hair Care, Makeup and Cosmetics, plus Unisex Beauty Essentials.  The layout is easy to read and the photographs are so well done and colourful.

blackforestchocolatecakefacialcompchicksguidetodiybeauty_0I suggest reading the first 50 or so pages if you are a beginner at making your own products.  This gives you the tips, tricks, and list of ingredients and equipment you might require.  Then skip to the back resource section for where to purchase, how to package and label your new products, and more.  After that pick out some recipes and get DIYing!

To me the most pampering treatment you can give yourself is a mask, so that’s the section I flipped to first.  The Chick’s Guide has everything from a basic facial scrub using oatmeal to a mask called the Black Forest Chocolate Cake!  Wouldn’t that be fun at a sleepover or girl’s night in?  If you are into essential oils that you need this guide too.  Many of the recipes include various oils beneficial to your health and wellness.  Best of all, the 125 recipes are vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free.  You can visit Sunny on www.veganbeautyreview.com
