I was very lucky to receive a surprise gift from the Neal’s Yard Remedies team last week, which was a copy of their brand Neal’s Yard Remedies Beauty Book £16.99. The book launches on the 2nd of February on their website and in NYR stores. I really like beauty books and love nothing more than adding new ones to my collection, so the Neal’s Yard Remedies Beauty Book is a very welcome addition. It’s such a beautiful book, and a very large one at that with 256 pages that cover so many different beauty topics.
The book includes step-by-step makeup tutorials and recipes to create over 100 DIY beauty products such as face masks, body scrubs, body butters, dry shampoo and more with easy to follow instructions. There is also a comprehensive directory of ingredients which details the uses and benefits of many natural ingredients like rose, lavender, macadamia, myrrh, sugar, peppermint and hundreds more.
The directory is my favourite part of the book as it’s so informative and gives many different uses for each ingredient that I’d never have known without this book. If you need to find a natural antiseptic for example, you can simply flick to the index where it lists all the ingredients that can be used; bergamot, lemon balm and thyme to name but a few.
The pages of the Neal’s Yard Remedies Beauty Book are really nicely set out with the perfect mix of text and pictures, and it’s divided into lots of chapters which makes it easy to find whatever you’re looking for. It’s such an amazing book, especially if you prefer a more organic and natural approach to beauty. I’ve learnt so much from the book already – it’s definitely a must-have book for any beauty lover, and would make for a lovely gift too.
