Babushka's Beauty Secrets Book Review & Giveaway

Giveaway Now Closed. Congrats to Benita, Bob and Lona.

Old World Tips for a Glamorous New You
By:Raisa Ruder

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
•And much more...

About the Author:
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. ... more

When my hands or feet are extra dry, I apply vaseline and then put on socks or gloves and go to bed. Next day super soft skin.
