   adds some updated ingredient information to the industry standards
LE is now available in stores nationwide. I wasn't sure this book would be something to keep when I saw it excluded alpha arbutin which is a pretty widely used and known compound in pesticides. I looked further to see how many other common ingredients were missing, but found that it includes several that Milady's dictionary is lacking. It has black currant leaf extract and black current seed oil, she said. It also includes ingredients that are becoming more common in holistic skincare, like the ancient Chinese herbalist's guidestragalus. Thanks for the change, Robert. Thanks for the reference.

   Not a good reference book at all.
It's a book, but it's thin, like a magazine. The book has 43 pages of footnotes, footnotes cite only four of the 178 pages. Leaving aside attorney fees, there is virtually no information about the book. And there are so many ingredients that could have been used in her product that are now mainstream. No wonder niacin is so expensive. That’s huge. It should be there, says Dr. Steve Peters, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California. Some people felt that Ms. Kennedy should have been mentioned more. Alpha-Arbutin Daisy Flower extract Coneflower Azelaic Acid I could think of so many more! Most of the book consisted of essential oil ingredients which for me was useless as I am well-versed in essential oils and wanted to learn more about cutting edge ingredients. So as a newbie aesthetician I wanted a nice, handy reference book, but this is not it by any means. It's pointless to keep, so I'll be sending it back and looking for something thorough. Nice cover.

   Know your ingredients👌🥼🔍🧪🔬👩‍🔬🤓
Gets to the point without over-writing and losing the reader. It's great to be able to learn new recipes and ingredients. What's more, all the ingredients work well together, so no one product will irritate your skin. It's an easy read for clients who love skincare and want to know more about ingredients.

   A little biased
This book is for people who are curious about ingredients, not just food. It's a bit biased in some descriptions, but I tend to find it's a bit natural or clean so just keep that in mind when reading! A couple of weeks ago, we had a similar exchange of complaints.

   Great for beginners and pros
Bought it because I had borrowed a friend's copy for a while. A lot of terms and conditions are defined in terms of what is in the food. Before each client, I use this technique to teach, understand and learn. Also available are product information and images.

   Bit disappointing.
Not surprisingly, Micron's shares rose on the news. I have had to go back to Google several times to find the exact recipe. Even for very basic stuff, such as "human anatomy," "physiology" or "physics," even some of those descriptions are not that informative.

   Read the description carefully.
Not what I thought. It's just an ingredient "dictionary" of sorts, a look at some of the ingredients.

   Mostly just definitions
It gives a few homemade face mask recipes. Even if I have it in front of me, it's many things you wouldn't have in your kitchen and would have to go to a special store to find them. Out of all the pages in the book, about 15 are actually informative on skin care while the rest is literally definitions of foods or products you would use for skin care. Not impressed.

   Perfect
Great book for reference and easy to read, Raymond said. This is the kind of information you always want to have when working with skincare products.
