Closed: Babushka's Beauty Secret Giveaway

This giveaway is generously sponsored by Anna and Hatchette Book Group.



DON'T SPEND A FORTUNE TO LOOK FLAWLESS Esthetician to the stars Raisa Ruder learned her time-tested beauty techniques from her Ukrainian grandmother (orbabushka, 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 Soufflés - 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

  • And much more...

I was so excited to get a chance to review this book. I am not a big brand name user and, as you know, I look for frugal and thrifty ways to do everything in life. Well, this book is just that. I can make all those special spa treatments at home. Spa treatments the stars paid fortune's for.  If there is one book giveaway you enter, this should be it! I HIGHLY recommend this book!
